Ashley Judd: "Hip-Hop Is Rape Culture"
Ashley Judd has recently released a book entitled “All That Is Bitter And Sweet” and has some chose words to say about Hip-Hop music. Being an individual who I can say with confidence has no idea about the upbringing of Hip-Hop of what it stands for said the following,
“As far as I’m concerned, most rap and hip-hop music — with it’s rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as ‘ho’s’ — is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny.”
I believe everyone has a right to express their opinion but Ashley Judd is putting hip-hop and rap music into one box and labeling it rape culture. That’s a bit extreme, ask her if she’s listened to J.Cole, Lupe Fiasco, B.O.B., Lauryn Hill just to name a few. One could have a thorough discussion on this topic but I’ll keep it light for right now and lets see what backlash Ms. Judd will be receiving because I have a feeling it will spring up.
What are your thoughts on her views??
