Will Smith Don't Need to Cuss to Sell Records

Oh journalism.

Prominent U.S. hip-hop executive Russell Simmons on Monday recommended eliminating the words "bitch," "ho" and "nigger" from the recording industry, considering them "extreme curse words."...

Ho is slang for whore and commonly used in hip-hop music while nigger, a derogatory term for blacks, is among the most highly charged insults in American culture. The slur "nappy," used by Imus, describes the tightly curled hair of many African Americans.

Really? Do we need the refresher course on what these slurs mean? My grandmother doesn't read Yahoo! news, but I'm pretty sure even she knows what ho, n-gger, and nappy mean. All the fifth graders that had been blissfully unaware of what those words mean now know.

Words are powerful things. I think that people forget that in this era of text messaging and run-on emails. The FCC rides the ass of every entertainment industry to keep every "bad word" under wraps, no matter what the context. Do I think Blue's Clues should be riddled with swears? No. But I think that artists should have the ability to curse a blue streak if they want to. I guess Russel Simmons does too, as the ban is voluntary, but Jay-Z isn't Jay-Z without some language. People don't talk with "goshdangits" in 2007. As we liberals generally say, if you don't like the content, turn off the radio, television, computer, channel, CD, iPod, etc.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to select a correct partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
