  1. And all those athelets are considered role models because they are rich. If the hip-hop that they grew up with didn't encourage that type of behavior, maybe they would act better in public.

    As far as a dress code, they was a time when athelets took pride in their appearance and wore suits because it showed status. Hell, there was a time when casual dress was, at minimum, the wearing of a sportscoat or collered shirt, slacks and shoes, not sneakers. Hip-hop came along and taught followers that you should show your ass to the public and not conform. Do you see any black atheletes dressing in hoodies and sweats when they appear on tv as hosts? Of course not.

    1 step forward, 2 steps back...

    I'd bet that the hip-hop community turns on Obama if he doesn't lead they way "the streets" or "the hood" want him to.
