Hip Hop vs. America 2

Did anyone watch this last night it was actually pretty good.

On Wednesday, June 25 at 8:00 p.m. BET News premieres the second installment of its popular town hall series, HIP HOP VS. AMERICA II: WHERE DID THE LOVE GO?, a no-holds-barred discussion focusing on music videos, misogyny within the hip-hop culture, race vs. gender, the strained relationships between black men and women and the media’s role in shaping the perception of African Americans. Hip-hop culture and controversy have always made for familiar bedfellows, and with this special, BET News provides viewers with a forum to address some of the most pressing issues facing the Black community today.

Hosted by BET News correspondent Jeff Johnson and hip hop pioneer MC Lyte, this primetime special provides a platform for a heated debate that aims to uncover the cause and effect of relationships between Black men and women. This three-part special features a passionate, lively and opinionated debate that tackles many sensitive issues, including:· the images of women on television, particularly in music videos; · sins of sexism; · a segment about “What’s love got to do with it?” to explore if this current climate further erodes the familial structure; · a segment “Am I my sister’s keeper?” featuring an all-female panel that cuts across generational, socioeconomic and cultural lines; · race vs. gender; and · the role the media plays in shaping American and international perceptions of Black women.
