The other part of the problem are the rap artists who do endorse money, guns, drugs, and sexism as part of their personal branding. It’s certainly not all of them, and such things harm black communities more, but it’s an image being deliberately projected, and hard. So when people outside the community make the assumption I can’t really blame them, and I’m certain Mr. Bratton was not even thinking about artists like Beyonce or the Wu-Tang Clan when he made that statement.

It’s like this.
