    'Hip-Hop Has Improved Race Relations'

    JAY-Z has credited hip-hop with improving race relations across America - because white kids who idolise him and SNOOP DOGG don't become racists.
    The rapper insists there's too much negativity about the musical genre and its related culture - and few dwell on the good it's done.
    He explains, "It has changed America immensely... Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations.
    "Racism is taught in the home... and it's very hard to teach racism to a teenager who idolises, say, Snoop Dogg. It's hard to say, 'That guy is less than you.' The kid is like, 'I like that guy, he's cool. How is he less than me?'
    "That's why this generation is the least racist generation ever. You see it all the time. Go to any club. People are intermingling, hanging out, enjoying the same music."

    LOL! Hip-hop has done nothing more than dumb down American culture and make people more superficial. To use snoop dogg as a reference is even more ridiculous.

    Yes, what hiphop has done is removing people even further from their roots

    Exactly. Hip-hop is a good example of the way multi-culturalism, rather than 'enriching' cultures, actually damages them. What we are witnessing with sections of 'white' youth, is not a synergy of cultures, a new hybrid even, we are seeing the wholesale destruction of cultural identity.
