Synopsis:

Increasingly, police, politicians, and late-night talk show hosts portray today's inner cities as violent, crime-ridden war zones. The same moral panic that once focused on blacks in general has now been refocused on urban spaces and the black men who live there, especially those wearing saggy pants and hoodies. The media always spotlights the crime and violence, but rarely gives airtime to the conditions that produced these problems.

The dominant narrative holds that the cause of the violence is the pathology of ghetto culture. Hip-hop music is at the center of this conversation. When 16-year-old Chicago youth Derrion Albert was brutally killed by gang members, many blamed rap music. Thus hip-hop music has been demonized not merely as black noise but as a root cause of crime and violence.

Fear of a Hip-Hop Planet: America's New Dilemma explores?and demystifies?the politics in which the gulf between the inner city and suburbia have come to signify not only a socio-economic dividing line, but a new socio-cultural divide as well.

Book Description:

Every era of the black experience has produced an art form. The first great migration of blacks to urban centers took place in the early 20th century. It produced the blues. Another movement took place between 1970 and 2000, during which time seven million blacks relocated from the suburbs to the inner city. This last migration produced hip-hop music: an art form to express the shared experience of the black majority that has been left behind.
