steve harvey is okay, but he got ethered by katt williams.
the only race of people is the human race, and white, asian, latin and all people degrade women.
this isn’t bc we’re not cool or cuz we’re hard, we do it because we been doin it for 3000 years.
i don’t promote degradin women, but it has nothing to do with black people. just people.
furthermore, think about all the rock music that degrades music just in the past 10 years.
degrading women literally has NOTHING to do with music. music is a reflection of our culture and society, it is our culture and society that condones sexism and misogyny.
i do like harvey, just not sure why he is taking this direction. i definitely support his attempt to tell dudes to grow up, because the behavior is childish. i just don’t know why he is making it a race issue
they degrade themselves..nobody puts guns to these chicks heads….its all about money at the end of the day…
Looks like Steve is trying to get back on the Oprah show again.
He’s on target about Men relating to Women. Credit is due for atleast raising a voice against it.
Adding that Black Men degrade our Sista’s probably b/c he doesn’t listen to other genres that do the same. But this is more about WOMEN (hence why he’s saying this during his book promotion).
I love hip-hop and @ 23 yrs. i consider myself ol’ skuul. So im about pleasing the women in my life and i’m still able to stay real w/ my fellas. If they dont like who i am they can kick rocks.
Damn that a thick ass mustache.
But overall, I agree.
Wow, playing the typical race card. Somebody go and get Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to fight our battles.
lmao Steve Harvey Said Back N The Day, Guys Wanted To Dress Up 4 Women, 2 Feel Good, Now Today, They Dress Up For Each Other… Rofleeeeeeee
I Agree, Blackmen Need More Fathers, When I Was Coming Up I Never Realized I Was The Only Kid With A Live-In-Dad In My Whole Hood….Kids Raising Kids Is Bad, And Single Mothers Are Bad, They Think They Being Independent But They Fuckin That Child Up By Not Letting Him See What A Real Man Look Like, And How He Conducts Himself..
Harve is a clown… tell him to tell the station he works for to play music that doesn’t degrade women!!! Or tell him to tell the labels to stop requesting these types of songs!!!! better yet put your money where your big mouth is and set up something so kids could make music thats not so degedating…
b!tch n!ggaz… smh!
i cant stand this guy. black people are the only people that get on the radio and act like niggers and yes there is a -er. i heard that shit on my way to class one day i was so embarrassed
hes right and wrong.
Women actually enjoy calling themselves bytches & have become demoralized across the racial spectrum in America.
I think feminism & desensitization fuced up alot of the American family structure.
Hiphop has always had wonderful positive music praising women but white controlled corporate media is not interested in it so it gets no airplay.
lastly black men are naturally the coolest muthafuggers on the planet, & we will always be masters of smooth swag because its in our d.n.a.
harvey gets a c + for effort.
He’s right…All other races have the women degrading the men (as well as theirs too!)
Double standard anyone?
i cant stand this guy. black people are the only people that get on the radio and act like coons and. i heard that shit on my way to class one day i was so embarrassed for the race. steve harvey is truly a stain on america
Truthfuly thats true, it all started in hip hop! Now R&B singers tryna be like Hip hop niggaz so they tryna do it a little! We not only degrade or women We try to degrade & Bring down each other as black people period! It’s really no love amongst us!
well for one its not “your” music
Most people, especially kids, find it hard to look at themselves in mirror and constructively realize their faults. Instead, they immediately become defensive, marinate in denial, and perpetuate the childishness by name calling and insults. The first thing out of a childs mouth when a “grown-up” tries to point out the error in thier ways is, “Well, so and so does it too”…. SMH….That’s when you hear the “Jump off of a bridge” cliche’. Steve is on point. The truth hurts. That’s why you see, and will continue to see, kids get off topic and begin name-calling in their defense. As weak of a defense it is….it’s all they got. Instead of calling Steve a poopyhead, try understanding his point of view; and if you have a good argument to the contrary, show and prove. But pointing fingers outward rarely is as effective as pointing it inward.
Lmao at #12
“lastly black men are naturally the coolest muthafuggers on the planet, & we will always be masters of smooth swag because its in our d.n.a.”
Typical ignorant ass nigga, this is one of the most ignorant racist shit i heard in months
them bytches even call themselves bytches. damn…they cant wait to shake thier bootys in front of a camera with some gangsters, some cars and a lotta money.
id shake my azz too if megan foxx would give me a milli to do it.
lets be real, its all bout the money.
co sign with…#3 nobody puts guns to these chicks heads…its all about money at the end of the day. EXACTLY !!! Theses chicks are trying to get PAID. Half of them video chicks work for Modeling Agency(Thats the real PIMP) the agency gets half of what theses chicks be earning.
Race? Whats this black race you speak of Mr Hightower?
Get the fuck outta here.
yeah, mr hightower is on point. but at the end of the day, white people degrade their women too, WTF is he talking about? even arabs do too, making their bitches rock dem hijabs, suffocating their faces and shit
he might have a fair point but if ppl are calling some women bithces and hoes the minority of women they are talking about need to stop acting lyk bitches and hoes.
How would he know? He prolly only listens to R&B. LMAO!
ughhh has he heard rock music? also who cares…music isn’t responsible for raising kids, parents are and eventually it is about personal responsibilities
What is crazy to me is that eveytime a person tries to do or say anything positive about our people he is jumped on like he is a KKK member! Everytime!! I remember when Bill Cosby said that we needed to raise our kids better. Make your child read. Get them off of the t.v. Pull their pants up…he was called all types of names…this is ridiculous! A person cant call a spade a spade! THEY RIGHT!!! These people getting the same treatment as a KKK member! What would you rather them say…that we need to continue killing ourselves until there are no black peole left on the planet?? How about, keep selling drugs to your own kind until your entire group is high and addicted. How about, dont read a book. How about, it’s ok that you know every dance and song on the radio but you cant do any math nor read. How about it’s cool to go to jail and stay there all your life…that’s what real niggazz do…you mf’s are idiots..dumbass niggazzzz…
black ppl degrade themselves, and get exposed
his right in some point and not in some point so this type of topics will never have one equal answer so no point of arguing
Y is it white emtertainers r never in the media putting down other genrer of entertainment?
Y have i never seen tom cruise or anybody on hannity or bill orielly putting down heavy metal and the mosh pits? The black entertainers make it ok for hannity and bill orielly to put us down.. If they have a problem with rap music dont listen.
I agree with most of what he had to say, but he’s not looking at the full picture. If women want to be treated better then they got to treat themselves better. They call themselves bitches and dress themselves the way they do. Women act like bitches and hoes and think that behavior is acceptable. I only call a women a bitch if she EARNED that title through her actions. Men should respect women more, but thats hard to do when women don’t respect themselves.
Everybody here is just looking at other people lol… whether or not black people are or aren’t “the only race to degrade our women in our music” who cares? He’s talking about black people. His message is to black people. It’s a good message.
That line about men dressing for eachother is true as hell. Most women don’t wanna see your crusty ass boxers. That “trend” started in prison so the gay men prisoners could see who would give ass, the ones SHOWING their asses with their pants sagging! The rappers do it cuz alot of them have went to prison and are gay/bi lmao. Alot of youngins don’t know that, they should. Don’t have to dress tight just pick your damn pants up lol. I think black women feel they need to be sexual all the time to get a man’s interest. Just my opinion.
Steve Harvey is outta here in his book he does the same thing by tellin women to sleep with men within a certain time limit do if wayne says you better jump off after a week and Steve says jump off in 30 dAys is that not degrading
Isn’t this the same guy that cheated on his wife by running off with an 18yr old??? Get the fuck outta here steve.
C’Mon Son get the fuck out of here with that bullshit its 2010 no body listens to no one what makes you think young dudes who listen to gucci mane or boosie or w.e his name is will actually listen what Steve said SMH like #35 said get your shit together its a life one of a kind nothing will ever be perfect on this earth,planet,home w.e you want to call it it just how it is and all of you knows this better then i do.
We aint the only ones doin this. Remember when women couldnt vote, we aint do dat. Women have always degraded through out history, they just point the finger at us.
Ok mista Harvey, ima white dude and if you can ever take da time to watch them poppy rock music videos or some wild redneck country fuck song, you’d proly change ya mind bout that. But its jus seen as more degrading ta women to see them on tha pole or some shit than to see them get drunk and be actin all dirty. But hey you cant say that women in rap videos aint smart, they make sure they clean tha floor when director says CUT! hahahaha
@21 eztee shut your dumb pathetic azz up
@18 who created all this fucn music that the world iz worshiping huh? black ppl

#40 shut your crakkker azz up

satanic crakkkers get off the black man dyck stop biting our shyt
corny azz whyte ppl always trying to imitate & bite other ppl culture & than wanna bring they pink azzez up in the forum & cause chaos
stinkn azz pigs
it has nothing to do with black people or music, i agree #1, throughout history human beings have been “naturalized” to think that a man is better than a woman, etc, etc. its a mental and social delusion that most humans have accepted and it results in backwards thinking! I think steve harvey is just upset about the fact that it may be a problem that he himself cannot fix, we all have to do it together!!!!!
As much of a fool & buffoon that I think Steve Harvey is, he’s actually on point in the message…maybe not so much the cause…because the music isn’t the cause…it’s the reflection of us…like Mos said…Hip Hop is gonna go, wherever WE go…I do not understand why that is such a hard concept for people to understand…record companies, tall isreali’s, society, blah blah blah…I saw in one of the comments up above, where someone said, sometimes it’s hard for people to look in the mirror…we joke and play, but, we ain’t being honest with ourselves. Women that enjoy calling themselves bitches and hoes? What’s cool about that? Do you want your daughter to exhibit that behavior? And I think that’s where the disconnect is. people aren’t realistic, or honest enough to take responsibility…because it’s not the easy thing to do…and it would require admitting fault…it would require actually putting a foot forward to change behaviors deemed negative and unnecessary…
lol @ # 17 And_Still!!!
@ 26, Priest… I co signed the Cos even though he’s not perfect either what he said was right… in this instance though we are not th econtrollers so how can we be the blame? Who owns the radio stations and the record labels… those are the people you need to address and he knows them!!!
@ Wesley… Yes SIR!!! They jus point the finger @ us… then we do it to ourselve for them!!!
This is silly. Women have been sex objects in virtually every music form of some sort; Rap Music happens to be the worst form, and the relatively dominant contemporary example. Rap music DOES need to change; however, Rap music doesn’t reflect black men or black culture; it’s an industry staple designed to make money. 75% of Rap’s buyers aren’t even black; they’re usually white, middle class people. So its relatively unfair to look at rap music and blow it up to say that all black men feel this way about women.
Every person who knows absolutely nothing about black people make that assumption, as do ignorant people. Steve Harvey- You are a comedian, not a black leader. You are saying the same crap we always hear and making all black people look bad through rap music, and rap music alone. Again, I’m not saying some rap music doesn’t degrade music; that’s not debatable. But saying that something is wrong with all of the black youth and the black community because of Rap Music, which isn’t in the hands of black people as it is projected by those willing to make money off of anything, is infuriating.
Us as black folks do need to take responsibility; but this talk from the elder generation is getting old. But the older generation doesn’t know what the fuck they’re talking about, let alone the real issue. There; I said it.
