Rev. Al Sharpton’s “Day of Outrage” Against Hip-Hop Lyrics Spanned 20 Cities Yesterday

sharpton.jpgRev. Al Sharpton fulfilled his promise to lead a nationwide protest against hip-hop music yesterday (August 7). Spanning 20 U.S. cities, the national “Day of Outrage” against vulgar and demeaning hip-hop lyrics was spearheaded by Sharpton’s National Action Network’s “Decency Initiative.” Protests occurred in Detroit, Mich., Dallas, Texas and New York City, as angry fans called for the banishment of words such as “nigga,” “ho” and “bitch.” 80 people joined Rev. Sharpton in Detroit, while 150 people marched outside of the Virgin Megastore in Times Square. “We’re talking about Viacom, Time Warner, Vivendi,” Sharpton told the Associated Press yesterday. “The opposition has tried to use the argument of free speech, but they don’t have the freedom to use peoples’ pension funds against their own will and interest.”

According to the National Action Network, if record companies do not comply with the public’s demands for censoring hip-hop lyrics, state governments across the country should divest their pension funds from record labels. “New York state has $3 billion invested in companies that use words like nigga, bitch and ho,” Rachel Noerdlinger, spokeswoman for the National Action Network told amNY. “They need to quit.”

In an interview with the Associated Press, Rev. Sharpton went even further to question the motives of record companies that release offensive hip-hop music. “Every record company has what they call a lyrics committee, where they screen lyrics to make sure they’re not against police, or gays, or Jews,” he said. “Well how come they’re clearing lyrics against blacks and women?”

    fuck al sharpton and his camera-chasing ass

  • Fire

    As far as I’m concerned, Al Sharpton and people like him are nothing more than ambulance chasers that only come out when they want attention. He’s been more consistent on this issue than I’d thought he’d be, but he doesn’t really care about discrimination (Tawana Brawley, anyone?). He just wants to change something he doesn’t like.

  • SCARTOWN

    I bet if we protested the bullshit this man comes up with,there’d be 10’000 in that mothafucka’s with signs!

  • DirtDoggy

    Sharpton is a fat bitch ass hoe himself and he’s not female.

    You see the point ?

    There are more bitch ass dudes in the world than femals and the majority of the time rappers are talking about males, so get it strieght you dumb fucks, know hip-hop before judging it, Al, you big egg shapped faggot even your own people think your a clown. The US goverment just lost 190,000 weapons over in Iraq and don’t know where they went, lol, let’s talk about some serious issues that actually effect the people, fuck, this can’t be life.

  • Brandon

    Last time I herd fighting fire with fire only causes it to grow. Hip Hop didn’t make me say Nigga, Bitch Hoe or any other. I will agree that they made it more acceptable.
    Going against the grain like this is not going to change hip hop or slow it down. Look at NWA the more the people lashed out against them the more popular they became. Stop working against the grain and work with it. Everybody forgets the positive and focuses on the negative.
    What about R&B, Rock, Pop, The movies, TV shows and most important parents? Please think of Dr. Martin Luther King, he didn’t fight White people he played their game to get what he wanted. Oh and it is that big of a subject where his name can be brought up.

    I’m not supporting the poor choices that our new hip hop leaders are taking just find a better way of sorting this out Sharpton! This is a mental civil war against our own people.

These words have been around since forever and will continue to be till the end fuck face, so you continue to suck on big AL’s summer sausage like the fag you are.

  • TT

    to Keep it so real, al sharpton is a publiciy chaser. but look here im not a hater i see where some rappers are commin from if the world didn’t give a fuck about them when they were poor u can’t say shit about them or about how they get their money. but as a female i am sick and tired of the degrading of women in hip-hop today its sensless. and u can’t say these rappers aint callin me a hoe too. becuze thats like me callin someone a nigga and sayin im not talkin to all of u im just talking to the nigga. get my point.

  • niggaplease

  • BklynBandette

    White Folks Must REALLY Be Having An Orgasm By Now.

  • TheTruth07

    That’s hilarious that Al really believes that he is going to convince people that this is really about protecting blacks and women. If he was really that concerned about how come he wasn’t making all of these moves BEFORE the whole Don Imus thing came out. I guess bashing hip-hop is popular again, and as an MC myself that really pisses me off. Disease is rampant in the prison systems, young kids get kidnapped everyday, our economy is absolutely destroying the middle class in our social system, and we still aren’t making any headway in bringing our troops home, and Al feels like he needs to devote all of his energy into fighting hip-hop?! Please, this is nothing more than a publicity stunt. Hey Al, listen up-YOU WILL NEVER BE PRESIDENT!!!

  • Supreemwun

  • honestasicanb

    Breeze I think what everybody is trying to say is al sharpton could be fighting another fight. The only time they see al sharpton is when he is on tv so they dont know what he does else where. And breeze is correct so of you are some real ignorant shits, but hey you all like being at the bottom of the totem pole and believe me, you are. I am black too so save the race shit. We have to start thinking people. Or in your words you stupid bitch ho ass niggas need to use your muthafucking head for something other than hustling, slanging, robberies, and murders.

    king equality victorious…It’s not about the media discrediting “Brother Al”. It’s the fact that he started on Don Imus and allowed himself to be manipulated by “the man”. We need a black leader to step up and represent for the masses but that person isn’t Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson.

  • EdubVA

    Man, Al need to stop playing! Of all the issues we have in this country, he wants to start with this. If he spent one week in the hood he would see that those words do have their place in society. Hip Hop is mostly a reflection of what goes on in the streets, whether it’s killings , talking about real issues, clothes, or dancing the newest dance. If he want to change something how about targeting this bogus ass war and this gangsta ass administration! That’s where the real change needs to start. Change the poverty levels in the hood and maybe the content will change in Hip Hop.

  • DirtDoggy

    You guys/gals sticking up for Al Sharpton, are either 1. Gay 2. In his camp of attention grabing idiots 3. A female that is easily offended and been called a bitch to many times for obvious reasons. 4. Someone who grew up and lives in the suburbs with parents that payed all you bills throughout your lives thuss far.

    ***Go to a fucking gospel site where you belong, they will take your weak ass advice on life, because this issue is miniscuel compared to what’s really going on, OH ya’ I read books mutherfuckers, but books are all theoretical knoledge, true knoledge is not read in a book, so just because there are some kids that can’t read books or spell does not mean they are dumb, infact they could be smarter than you when it comes to real life.

  • why all these white boys pretending to be black online?

    I aint mad at Al. Hes misguided about how to deal with it, but somebody needs to defend Black women. All you clowns jumping up to defend millionaire rappers who could care less if they fuck up some little girl’s self-image as long as they get paid have forgotten that hip-hop used to be our way of uplifting and bringing peace to the ghetto, not a handbook for how to make the ghetto an even harder place to live for all the kids and old folks. Thats how I know most of y’all haven’t seen any part of the hood, cuz you think its only rappers and video chics living there. Where was the protest from you bums when gay groups were working to censor reggae (which gave birth to hip-hop)? Why aren’t you bums mad that Bush has made it harder to sue corporations that rip you off and cut off your heat and lights? But you’re mad at Sharpton for a misguided attempt to do the right thing? Please.
    A real bitch is one who is scared to challenge an old white boy (Imus) but is ready to go to war on his own kind. A real hoe is one who is willing to sell his mind, body and soul for paper. (Turn on the TV you little homos, your fav. rapper got his shirt off again.)

    Hip hop represents people and ‘those three lil words’ are common place on the streets. i just wish people would differentiate hip hop from rap. We can’t put tribe called quest, pharcyde or talib with 50 or lil John but it all gets grouped together.

    I swear more than most and have no objections to it in music along with conscious lyrical content. If you don’t feel it don’t look for it. There’s enough censoring on radio already. I’m not going to go into church and tell them to stop preeching against sinners like me so step back and let us do our thing!
