The NY Times has an article on an activist group protesting outside the homes of Viacom executives (owners of VH1, BET and MTV) over the content of rap videos.
Among other things the protesters want media companies like Viacom to
develop “universal creative standards” for video and music, including
prohibitions on some language and images. Video vixens and foul-mouthed
pimps and thugs are now so widespread, the protesters maintain, that
they infect perceptions of ordinary nonwhite people.
Wouldn’t they be better served protesting outside the mansions of the rap artists who create these videos?
Blame shifting at its finest.
