Dr. Ben Carson is one of the many Republican candidates that is running for the White House and he has decided to try and reach out to the youth using hip-hop as a medium. The sixty second urban radio advertisement is schedule to hit the radio waves this Friday. Dr. Carson has come out and specifically labeled the hip-hop community as one of the major culprits in destroying communities.
“We need to reestablish faith in our communities and the values and principles that got us through slavery, that got us through Jim Crow, and segregation, and all kinds of horrible things that were heaped upon us,” he said. “Why were we able to get through those? Because of our faith, because of our family, because of our values, and as we allow the hip-hop community to destroy those things for us, and as we grasp onto what’s politically correct and not what is correct, we continue to deteriorate.”
