'm an 80's baby, and while I'm a pastor, I'd like to think I'm somewhat tuned in or hip to mainstream hip hop. Like a lot of us, I listen to the sweet beats of the songs, of the hip hop industry today, and have excused the horrible lyrics that tend to make you turn the radio down quickly if you are riding with someone who's over 60 years old in the car. Even if you listen to the music yourself, if you are like me, you say to your self "this beat is hot, but I don't care much about what there saying". Now the ignorance has risen to a whole new level, and there's no way I can go there. Niki Minaj, or her label, or some graphic artist has used a picture of Malcom X staring out the window, protecting his wife and kids from folks who had sent 100's of death threats to his house, and on his phone. I'm officially offended. How many sleepless nights did Bettie Shabazz endure? How much torment did his children endure while watching their father slain in the audobon ballroom? How dare you Nicki Minaj use this picture that depict the pain of a man in fear for his life and family, because he was standing up for African Americans.
