IS OBAMA TAKING CAMPAIGN CASH FROM BLACK MUSIC PROMOTERS OF FILTH AND MISOGYNY?

MARTIN BLASTS OBAMA FOR IGNORING RAP AND HIP-HOP LYRICS WHILE “PIG PILING” ON DON IMUS

ANDY SAYS ADVERTISERS SHOULD EXTEND BOYCOTT TO RAP AND HIP-HOP STATIONS AS WELL: “LET THEM TAKE THEIR ADS OFF HIP-HOP AND RAP STATIONS,” HE WILL DEMAND.

(CHICAGO)(April 12, 2007) Chicago-based Internet journalist, broadcaster and media critic Andy Martin will hold a news conference Thursday, April 12th at 1:00 P.M. to criticize mendacious politicians and hypocritical advertisers that are subjecting shock jock Don Imus to a “racist double standard.”

Martin will demand that advertisers boycotting Don Imus also boycott also boycott “urban” radio stations broadcasting rap and hip-hop music with violent, misogynistic lyrics.

“The filthy language and violent misogyny on hip-hop and rap radio stations is appalling by comparison with Don Imus’ disgraceful lapse of judgment,” Martin will charge. “Senator Barack (Barry) Obama told ABC News his ‘two young daughters’ are being victimized by Don Imus. What hypocrisy. What about his daughters’ ‘degrading’ treatment on rap and hi-hop radio stations? Obama falls silent when Black perpetrators are involved. Maybe he’s silent because they are his campaign contributors?

“I would say that Obama’s daughters have more to fear from African-American misogynists on the radio that they do from a jerk like Imus. Before pig piling on Imus Obama should condemn rap radio and refuse to broadcast his own commercials or appear as a guest on hip-hop and rap stations. Obama, Sharpton and Jackson are ‘civil rights profiteers’ who are afraid to take strong action against misogyny by Black music entrepreneurs.

“Has Obama taken any money from Black music promoters peddling filth and misogyny? I bet he has. He is just as guilty as Don Imus.

“The amount of hypocrisy in the Imus Imbroglio is mounting beyond Mount Everest. Its time to put a cap on the nonsense that craven advertisers and unscrupulous politicians are producing,” Martin will state.

“I am going to start contacting Imus’ ‘boycotting’ advertisers and asking them to extend their boycott to rap and hip-hop stations as well. Then we will see if they are hypocrites or racists-in-reverse. They may face a boycott from citizens concerned by the filthy lyrics they are supporting with their ad dollars”
