Congress Vs Rap

(antiMusic) Make no mistake America, Congress really cares about kids! Today they held a hearing tackling the number one issue facing young Americans. No, it's not toxic toys (and food) imported from China, it's not the coming Social Security crash, it's not an announcement that they will stop buying special interest votes by placing crushing debt on the younger generation ($400 K for a child born today) to fund their "programs", it definitely wasn't the overcrowding of schools and drop in the quality of education due to illegal immigration, and it's not even a bill to stop the exporting of millions of jobs. It's a far more important issue that threatens our future. That's right, the House held a hearing about rap lyrics.

The House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer Protection held a hearing on Tuesday to examine the most important issue facing the nation, hip-hop. "Our representatives" heard stirring testimony from rappers about what is wrong and what is right with hip-hop. Master P couldn't apologize fast enough for using the word "b*****" in some of his past songs.

On the other side of the coin, rapper David Banner says he is just keeping it real. "I'm like (author) Stephen King: horror music is what I do," he said according to Contact music. "If by some stroke of the pen, hip-hop was silenced, the issues would still be present in our communities. Drugs, violence and the criminal element were around long before hip-hop existed."

If you are so inclined you can write your "representative" and tell them how much you appreciate them looking at the important issues instead of the frivolous ones. You'll find the contact information - right here
