Dr. Boyce Watkins Explains His "BET is the New KKK" Statement, Talks Hip-Hop, and Lil Wayne

Dr. Boyce Watkins Your Black World blog -"I just spent the week in New Orleans, the powerbase for one of the most talented, powerful and destructive forces in the history of music: Lil Wayne.

I’ve admittedly bopped my head to the tunes of Lil Wayne in the past, feeling the same guilt that any man might feel if he were to enjoy a crack pipe or shot of heroin, knowing how these drugs destroy families, individuals and communities. In other words, I consider myself to be a hip-hop insider, and I simply hate the idea of being labeled as a hater.

But as a father and black man who has seen too much death and devastation in my family and so many others, I had to say that “enough is enough,” leading me to candidly discuss my decision to walk away from certain styles of hip-hop music."

From the video below we can agree that no other group of people extracts as much of its culture from music as African Americans do. What Boyce Watkins has to say is pretty raw and important. [Explicit language]
