Bridget Gray's Letter to Hip Hop
OK, so I am impressed with this video. I found it in a myspace bulletin posted by a friend of mine. You might wonder why I am posting a letter to hip hop from a spoken word performer, and why I might present you the option of hearing her feelings exposed. It is simple. I am for the empowerment of everyone and the cutting of our shackles. It is time for empowerment of women and freedom from superficial, material emptiness. It is time for conscious awareness of the messages we share. Please note that the use of the N-word in this piece is an integral part of the message and although it may be taken offensively, it is used to make a point. I would love to hear what you think of this piece. Thank you to my friend A* for your inspiration.
