Re: “RAP PROTEST HITS NARAS

I, too, am a person who feels in his heart that the philosophy and lifestyle that is promoted through some rap music is sending bad moral messages to our kids and others. But, knowing Paul and "Juicy J." from Triple Six personally, I can and will attest that they are nothing other than creative, brilliant people like many in the music world who are taking advantage of a changing marketplace. I believe that all views can exist in this democratic society and that it is up to the morals in the hearts of the record buyer that dictate the flourishment or demise of ALL artforms. Those morals are placed in those hearts by upbringing. And those who have love in their hearts will not embrace certain things. And those with fear and hate in their hearts will embrace certain things. And it is not up to me to enstill those morals, but rather to demonstrate to the ill at heart that through love and not through hate will they find peace in their own hearts. God the Father has a plan for all of this and I am convicted that His plan, today as yesterday and tomorrow, is being carried out. We are witness to all of this and if we truly love our neighbor, we will show them the start of this pathway to a peaceful heart, then let THEM choose whether to walk on it or not. Love to all, received by some. -- John Hampton
