Don't expect truth or wisdom from entertainers. They work for monopoly media corporations, not for their adoring publics. With a few exceptions, Black entertainers conform to the dictates of Power and view their own “fans” as lower forms of life. “Jay-Z rejected an invitation to speak to [Harry] Belafonte, calling him a ‘boy’ who needed to understand that the rapper's very presence was 'charity' to the Black community.”

Lil' Wayne may be a big name in hip hop music, but he's a moral and intellectual lilliputian who trivialized the murder of Emmett Till “ by using it to make sick, caviler, sexist, and misogynistic references to women.” If you are in need of a strong Black male role model, Paul Robeson is your man.
