quote:Unnessary burden"? Do you really think the struggle is over and we, as a people have nowhere else to go? And if it is not you, our youth, who is going to take us there, then who do you supposed we look up to?
No maam, I don't think the struggle is over. Hip-hop is a form of revolution (not fluffy renaissance) that our Mothers and Fathers don't understand. If you look at the spirit of hip hop as a whole you will understand that we rebel. We rebel against our opposers who deny us Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of OWNERSHIP of our rightful compensation. We can't obtain this through an intellectual medium, because half of us (our artist) don't have a formal education. But we can darn sure express ourselves.
When our leaders give us access to positive and forward moving education, maybe then we'll require our artist to have at least a bachelor's degree.
