Church Buys 20 Billboards Denouncing Hip Hop Artists- "Stop Listening to Trash"

Y'all don't know how much THIS warms my heart. Thanks Bronze Trinity for the link. This week has been pretty heavy with the whole D-list comedians and R&B artists doing duets with alleged child predators, but Bronze Trinity brought it all back to center when she sent me that link

Starting today, twenty billboards will be going up throughout the city of Chicago denouncing artists that demean women and perpetuate violence. Some of the billboards are already posted.

Rev. Michael Pfleger, pastor of Saint Sabina church said, "If we are going to end the violence and the disrespect of women, we must fight every form of negativity, including the music industry."

The billboards read: "Stop Listening To Trash" naming ten present day disrespectful rappers.

Nah Right has more with some ironic commentary. Saint Sabina's website can be found here. Maybe we need to have a campaign to buy billboards? Stop listening to trash for REAL. We have got to stop funding the foolishness.
