that now dot the urban landscape the ghetto is a place we see typically only on the evening news-
the scene of a shooting or drug bust. In film this same ghetto is portrayed as exotic, foreign,
inhabited by vicious street gangs as in Tresspass or Welfare Queens as in ,Precious. Our social policy
reflects this view of the ghetto. We no longer invest in social programs in the inner city schools. We have given
upon them. We invest instead waging a drug war in those ghettos. The author shows that hip-hop music far
from being part of the pathology is part of the cure. Beautifully written, makes you think or rethink ,
hard to put down. Run do not walk to order yours now.
