Horrible that this was awarded as the token award given to minorities. As if this song represented what we are all about. Just sad.
What really hurts me, April, is that there are so many people defending it as if this were some great accomplishment for hip hop. I keep hearing things like, "Why do we care so much what White people think?" It's not about what White people think. It's about what the world thinks as 100 million people saw that broadcast. And most importantly, it's about what our OWN people think, especially our children. One of the many sad messages is this: Disrespect your women, and you will be rewarded.
