I really...don't even know where to begin with this one. It was in response to a story that ran Saturday. Anyone want to pursue this? Let me know.
Saying that the music industry owes the black community payment for the role that it has played in the destruction of the black community, a NC minister is calling for "Rap Reparations."
Rev. Paul Scott, "the Hip Hop TRUTH Minista" founder of the Durham NC based Messianic Afrikan Nation is demanding that the major record companies pay the Black community reparations on May 19th, the birthday of Malcolm X.
"The entertainment industry been guilty of the genocide of black men, women and children. They must pay the victims of the Hip Hop Holocaust," says Scott.
Scott is encouraging members of the black community who have been personally effected by the corporate expoitation of Hip Hop to contact the CEO's of the major record labels demanding an apology and the payment of reparations, this week.
Rev. Paul Scott is a minister, writer and activist based in Durhm NC. He has been a frequent guest on talk shows across the country discussing Race, Rap and Religion including Fox New's Hannity and Colmes, Fox News live and MSNBC's Nachaman. Scott first gained national attention in 1998 when he lead a sucessful campaign against Phat Boy Malt Liquor and in 2003 when he lead a campaign against rap star Nelly's Pimp Juice Energy Drink.
