I advocate for a boycott of rapper and record producer Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, for their irresponsible impact on modern culture.
Jay-Z's music is violent, racist and reinforces an attitude of aggression and victimization to the black community.
His ill-considered reactions to the George Zimmerman verdict are obvious evidence that he does not deserve his public position of influence.
In my opinion both he and his wife practice a subtle form of racism — happy to take the money of white people but advocating in their music and comments that white people are inherently racist and dangerous to the black community. Not helpful.
