I was just thinking about the Don Imus firestorm and all of the people who are dirtecting their resposnes right back at the african american music community, which does plenty of references to "hos" and their hairdos, and certainly regulartly profits from doing so.
Is this what we are about now? If this ushers in a new wave of censorship of any kind of media, whatever the race of the performer, we all lose. More to follow as my mind wraps around this. See also books by George Orwell.
