Transcript of Race, Revolution

Race, Revolution
and Rap

It all begins with slavery
A slave is someone who is owned by another person. A slave has:
No choice No freedom No money
A slave has to do what is asked of him by his master, usually this is work of some kind. Slaves are punished for not following their master's orders, working too slowly, or attempting to runaway
When we think of slavery today we think of the black Africans who were captured, sold into slavery and taken to the Americas to work on the plantations there.

Does this truly represent freedom?
Can there be a place for both NWA and Flo-rida in this world?
Who is hiphop sold to mainly?
Does Eminem speak to/for/about you?
Is the protest part gone for good?
Is there anything worth saving or is hip hop finished?
G-Funk starts the decline...
And this inspires interesting things!
And it gets worse...
I personally don't think all hope is lost. But for the time being I think "the message" is lost most of the time.
Disclaimer: todays lecture will contain a LOT of naughty words. Brace yourself against the torrent of filth that's about to be let loose. Liam, Austin, and the staff of Warrington Collegiate take no responsibility for any and all offense caused. Tell Snoop & Dre to stop saying rudies.
