Rev. Al Denounces Hip Hop?

The New York Daily News reports conservative commentator Tucker Carlson of CNN, who traveled to Africa with the Rev. Al Sharpton in July, writes in the new issue of Esquire: “During a speech at the W.E.B. DuBois center in Accra [Ghana],” Sharpton “all but denounced hip-hop culture and the ‘irrelevant Negroes’ it produces. ‘DuBois didn’t come here to teach Ghanaians how to break-dance or call their grandmother “bitch,”‘ Sharpton said.” Sharpton’s rep responded yesterday, “Tucker’s interpretation of Rev. Sharpton’s relationship with members of the hip-hop community isn’t always accurate.”
