Hip hop has once again been discussed on Fox News in a bad light. Last night, in an interview with Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, the Fox News collaborator talked about the moral hypocrisy in the mainstream and he mentioned rap music.
“We’ve got this whole trope now in rap music, all the major marquee rappers, Ice Cube, Jay-Z, Scarface,” says Victor Davis Hanson. “It’s just rampant anti-Semitism. And we saw Lebron James, our national icon, retweeting the anti-Semitic tweet of a rapper with no consequences. So the American people are saying to themselves, ‘Wow, what are the rules?” It should be noted that James has since apologized for his actions.
It should be noted that Fox News discusses hip hop at times and in a negative light. It really makes you wonder if they are even familiar with the culture at all, considering James’ apology (which wasn’t stated by Hanson), and there being rappers nowadays that preach positivity.
