Al Sharpton Targets “Ho’s” In New Campaign

Reverend Al Sharpton and his National Action Network will hold a 20-city tour to protest the word “ho” in popular culture.

 

The tour kicks off in major cities in the United States on August 7 and will feature 100 women in each market, protesting the word, as well.

 

“First of all, the ones that are being attacked are Black people,” Sharpton told AllHipHop.com in a previous interview. “We are being called n***ers and women, who they call ho’s and b****es….we’re reacting to an attack….they exploit our pain, they’re not expressing our pain.”

 

In May, Sharpton led a protest “Decency In Hip-Hop” march and rally, calling for standards within Hip-Hop music.

 

During the rally, Sharpton called for similar bans on the “n word” and the word b***h.

 

The 20-city tour is aimed at media entities who use the profane words over the airwaves, while advancing the equality and civil rights of African-Americans.

    didn’t the NAACP try to bury the ‘n word’…unless it’s a zombie ‘n word’ out there now I think the ‘n word’ is still alive and well…

    I don’t agree with a lot this guy says or does but I actually agree with him on this one…I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on the train and I’m hearing little kids (under the age of 7) saying ‘nigga’ while their mother or father just sit there like it’s nothing…it just makes me shake my head…
