Why does anyone take advice from Steve Harvey? Must be because he has a radio show. "Come on Steve", you say that cool has gone out of style because your generation did not teach it to the generation that followed you. Really??? It's been replaced by being "hard".

Steve you must realize the media images and music that existed back then "backed up" the cool that was taught to you. "Diamond in the back, sunroof top
Diggin' the scene with a gangsta lean, ooh hoo."

Cool was in style. In part because of what the public was shown to be acceptable through media. If the cool you're talking about comes from the 70's then take a look at some of the exploitative and popular betrayals of African American men at the time. Movies like The Mack, Shaft and Superfly; along with the supporting soundtracks that were spawned from those movies. People ate that stuff up like Madea in a Tyler Perry movie today. Those were some cool mutha...(shut your mouth); characters who portrayed a lot of respect for women. I think I heard a couple of hos and b****** in those movies too. Real respectful! "Better have my money!"

Media influences and perceptions along with music, are powerful influences no matter what era they come from. Steve you're in the industry. (You know the THEY you're talking about.) Is commercialized corporate music including Hip Hop partly to blame for what has been produced in men's attitudes toward women? What's on your typical urban radio station right now? (Hmmm) Now what do you think? Steve, I think you taught us too well.
