The Evil in this case is Black 'Lectorate interviewing arch-villain Cynthia McKinney. What bizarre, anti-American delusional rantings does she deliver this time?
Davey D: Are you concerned about the violent images directed towards women in Hip-Hop lyrics?
Cynthia McKinney: Davey, I am. Especially as a mother. And I'm concerned that those are the lyrics and TV videos that get air time. But the politically instructive messages of other artists are virtually ignored. And I'm concerned that our children are being herded into thinking of themselves only as sexual objects and not real competitors on the battlefield of life, in economics, in politics, in academia.
I also think that it is important that we consider the interests of Independent and "Mom and Pop" retailers who depend upon this culture for a living. They are part of the Hip-Hop community and many artists would not be successful without these stores.
Hear that? She's calling tv and radio racist! And telling black people to burn down Best Buy and Circuit City stores!
Sorry, it looks like so much fun when the tourists do it.
Bit of a puff piece, but she's a politician running for office, so you can't expect much. She does casually mention "reparations, political prisoners and things like COINTELPRO", which will no doubt cause another of those cultural misunderstandings.
I've already been told that reparations are a shakedown by race hustlers and poverty pimps, that there are no political prisoners in the U.S. and that COINTELPRO protected us all from dangerous radicals like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jean Seberg, so don't feel the need to remind me. Thank you ever so.
