Reading Log

Beachum, Floyd D., and Carlos R. McCray. Cultural collision and collusion: Reflections on
hip-hop culture, values, and schools. New York: P. Lang, 2011.
The book makes a detailed analysis of how the youth, as well as the school culture
impact, make an impact on the society in addition to the challenges faced. The author places
great emphasis on youth culture and has a specific interest in the popular hip-hop culture. The
book can account for the specific social-cultural factors that are key in contributing to the Black
Youth urban culture in the United States.
Through the text, one can comprehend the manner in which majority of the schools
respond to the social as well as the intellectual needs of the black students who have long been
considered a minority and regularly discriminated. According to Beachum’s book, while the
cultural collision is when students are in conflict with “explicit cultural dispositions,” cultural
collusion results from the negative behaviors “attitudes and beliefs” of groups that have been
marginalized. As a defense mechanism, the black youths in school who feel that their special
needs are not addressed, easily identify with Hip-Hop as well as black history to express
themselves and therefore have a cultural identity.
Blanchard, Becky. "The Social Significance of Rap & Hip-Hop Culture." Journal of
Poverty & Prejudice, Spring (1999).
The journal focusses on how important Rap as well as hip-hop was and still continues to
be to the society regarding its social significance. The death of popular hip-hop artist, Notorious
BIG and Tupac are put in the limelight as one of the negative consequences and rivalry brought
about by the seemingly violent hip-hop music. According to Blanchard, the beginning of hip-

hop was pioneered by Kool who would use the “innovative turntable to stretch a song,” the style
became popular in Halloween and eventually gave birth to one of the most talented and
influential artists in the genre. The genre at the start was accompanied by the popular breakdance music that was common among the African Americans.
From the journal, apart from hip-hop acting as a source of identity for the African
Americans, it also had the social significance of campaigning for the African American rights.
The author, however, makes emphasis on the fact that hip-hop was the commercialized form of
the native rap music and found popularity even among the whites. The significance of this
journal is to give a history of the origin of hip-hop music and the social impact that it has had on
the society.
George, Nelson. Hip Hop America. New York: Penguin, 2005.
The book looks at Hip-hop from a unique and specialized perspective. Although most
individuals understand hip-hop from the perspective of graffiti, commercial culture as well as
cinema, the author gives a particular interest in black dominance in the recording of Hip-hop
music. The author gives a chronological account of the growth of hip-hop music from its basic
origin to the popular and interesting assimilation into the American pop culture.
The author, through the detailed analysis he makes concerning Hip-hop music, shows the
kind of expertise that he had on the genre. The text is very important in comprehending the
negative aspects of hip-hop musicians as they gained popularity in the music and forgot it was
their source of identity and heritage against the white man. According to the author, “Young
African Americans bashed” each other in the arena full of Whites. This shows a generation that
had lost respect and value for the genre. It is also interesting to observe how the author gives
