In a recent article for YourBlackBloggers.net, Chico C. Norwood postulates that hip-hop music on the radio is conditioning an entire generation of African American males to be unemployable. Through a long and well thought out argument, Norwood explains that men who go into the world without education good values or a productive money management system have a very difficult time integrating with the rest of society.
Who wants to hire a black man who stays high and drunk, walks around in saggy pants with his underwear showing, can’t get to work on time because he’s up all night having s*x with everything that moves, is hanging out on the streets all night looking to shoot or stab someone or popping bottles at the club.
Who wants to hire someone who greets customers and/or co-workers with a mouth full of gold teeth, a dozen different tattoos crawling up the side of their neck (the only possible piece of clothing he could wear to work would be a turtleneck sweater) and ten gold chains and a gigantic cross dangling down their chest?
Are Norwood’s words factual or is he supporting racists who seek to oppress black males? It’s hard to tell, but the article is certainly worth reading.
