From the Inside Flap:

Throughout the years, African Americans have been portrayed in some pretty negative ways. Just reflect on some of the stereotypical images that were around in the mid- 1800s to 1900s.

And while most of us look back on those old stereotypes with utter disdain, how many of us realize that there are new stereotypes out there that are much worse than the old?

Rap / hip-hop music, videos, magazines and so on, portray African Americans as being violence-prone, criminal, promiscuous and stupid. Not only do they attempt to define us in this image, but, even worse, they blatantly promote, glamorize, and glorify this type of behavior.

But this book isnít only about the poisonous elements laced into the hip-hop culture; itís really about the poisonous elements laced into the American culture in general.

Itís about an "entertainment" industry gone mad, out of control, bombarding us all with immorality and decadence from every direction.

What follows is a satirical attack, not necessarily on a style of music thatís being promoted, but rather a style of behavior thatís being promoted.
