Damn Homie! In High school you was tha ...

We as Hip Hop fans need to step our game up and stop disrespecting women. We in some way or another have gotten caught up with this vice of idolizing models and degrading them, while the women allow the treatment and mimic the images they see in the music videos and think it's acceptable. We're not asking the Hip Hop generation to stop having fun all together, naw... we just need to clean up our act and respect women.

This is apparent in the latest SOHH.com report that shows David Mays & Benzino at The Source Magazine were running a ship that reflected that stance Hip Hop where women are sub-par and don't deserve their respect.
Former Source Magazine Editor-In-Chief Kim Osorio and former Vice President of Marketing Michelle Joyce filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, charging Source co-owners David Mays, who serves as Chief Executive Officer, and Raymond "Benzino" Scott, the Chief Brand Executive, of gender discrimination, sexual harassment and unlawful retaliation against women working for the company.


There is a bigger problem here that goes beyond The Source Magazine's business practices, in all of Hip Hop we're now selling flesh and materialism. It a vicious cycle of discrimination and hate among our own people that creates a rat-race where he who hits the most ass and has the most bling is king. Like we said, we need to step our game up and respect women equally in Hip Hop! And ladies fight for your right and don't fall into the negative stereotypes. Its a two-sided effort. Hopefully we can level the field for both genders in Hip Hop. Someday... after Vida Guerra stops modeling. Maybe. God we need help!

It is a bit hypocritical to speak of respecting women but then to post up pictures of that model to glorify her. I guess it was meant to serve as an example. But great topic and great points. Keep it up.
