Jigga Says Hip Hop Helps Race Relations

Posted By on March 12, 2009

    Hip Hop has helped race relations more than you might think according to Jay-Z. "It has changed America immensely… Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations" Jigga says in a new interview. "Racism is taught in the home… and it’s very hard to teach racism to a teenager who idolizes, say, Snoop Dogg. It’s hard to say, ‘That guy is less than you.’ The kid is like, ‘I like that guy, he’s cool. How is he less than me?"

    Jigga says things are better than ever "That’s why this generation is the least racist generation ever. You see it all the time. Go to any club. People are intermingling, hanging out, enjoying the same music."
