An African-American Catholic church is challenging Chicagoans to stop listening to and buying music from violence-promoting, women-degrading rappers like Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent. From Saint Sabina’s website:
Starting today, twenty billboards will be going up throughout the city of Chicago denouncing artists that demean women and perpetuate violence. Some of the billboards are already posted.
Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of Saint Sabina church said, “If we are going to end the violence and the disrespect of women, we must fight every form of negativity, including the music industry.”
The billboards read: “Stop Listening To Trash” naming ten present day disrespectful rappers.
Yes, and if we are going to end the violence and disrespect of women, we must fight those who lend credibility to such “artists” as Snoop Dogg.
Snoop Dogg is a headliner in Hamburg, Germany at one of Al Gore’s “Live Earth” concerts to complain about global warming.
Stop promoting trash, Al.
