Jay Z: ‘It’s Difficult to Teach Racism When Your Kid Looks Up to Snoop Dogg’



(Rolling Stone) – Oprah Winfrey’s Emmy-nominated Master Class series spotlights dozens of iconic African-American writers, actors, musicians and more discussing the civil rights movement. In the latest episode, Jay Z talks about the role hip-hop music has played in diluting racial tensions in America. “Racism is taught in the home. I truly believe that racism is taught when you’re young,” Jay Z says. “So it’s very difficult to teach racism when your kid looks up to Snoop Doggy Dogg.”

“I have a very interesting take on the cultural impact of hip hop and it’s a strong one, so I just want to prepare people at home,” the rapper adds. “I think that hip hop has done more for cultural relations than most cultural icons.”
