Can I Get A Moment of Clarity

I had the opportunity to catch a little bit of Snoop Doggs show on a popular music channel recently. It seemed to really hark back to the old minstrel days just without the black face. No real creativity, intelligence, humour or edge to it. Just Snoop playing it up to the cameras and acting the glorified uneducated pimp.

Given that he is a truly talented rapper it makes you wonder how low the art form can go. From the looks of that show I guess there is some depth still to go. Its a shame that Black people still feel the only way they can relate to the mainstream is to caricature and ridicule themselves.
