Even rap’s fans think it needs to clean up.
A University of Chicago survey shows 58 percent of black youths listen to rap daily, and nearly half watch music videos at least several days a week.
But most also say they think the videos contain too much sex and violence. Two-thirds of young black women say rap music videos portray African-American females “in bad and offensive ways.”
About 57 percent of young black men agree.
Of course, nothing will change until the fans stop listening to the music and watching the videos.
