What is going on BLACK PEOPLE

I was just searching amazon to see what is new and the link for Amy Winehouse's album came up. (That's the chick that sings the song "Rehab") One morning as I was getting ready for work, her video came on VH1. I jammed to it for a minute and then I realized she was saying "My daddy wants me to go to rehab I said no, no, no" OK, Here is my boggle. Why is that crap listed as R&B. OK, I will clam Macy Gray because she is eccentric, but that song "Rehab" is some garbage too rotten for the trash can. As I was getting ready to turn the channel, my 5 year old came in and picked up the catchy tune.

Me being and Artist, I do not believe in censorship. But there is a level of responsibility of folks to produce thought provoking lyrics. Its OK for her to sing that crap, it should be reduced to the after dark special that is aired to late for people to care. Then she will be put in the R&B category of Trick Daddy and Luke. WHY IS IT THAT ANYTHING NEGATIVE IS CLASSIFIED IN THE BLACK AREA. What ever happened to the rap and R&B that was thought provoking. Michael Jackson was put into the Pop genre before he started being weird and then he was added into the R&B Category. We need to stand up BLACK FOLKS and make people produce things which we would be proud of......That is my morning boggle.

Good post. In North America they're are loads of broken people, from broken homes, from broken communities and cities. Its a mess and secular art reflects that 'brokenness'

Make a dua'a for all to be guided to the straight path --that's what I do.

Ma'as salaama,
