Can Thug Love Survive the Obama Era?

Wednesday, April 1, 2009


When President Obama took office, it was popular opinion to say that black male stereotypes effectively died with that historic event.
But have they? The apt-named "Obama effect" is not really taking hold in some of the heartland as evidenced by recent headlines as women continue to be entertained by those who you couldn't leave an empty purse around.
BET, which prided itself in covering inauguration activities, has reverted to repeated and familiar portrayals of black men in sagging pants and huge T-shirts, etc.
Thug music hasn't changed either.
Many of the artists that were hot before Obama became a household word haven't changed their style at all.
When will the media outlets display 'change' we can believe in? Should thug love survive?

Thug love is here to stay. It's survived enough eras. I think thug love is like a cockroach, it can survive nuclear weapons.
