Many agreed white America’s image of many Latinos and African-Americans is actually created by white people, because the majority of record executives selling the rappers’ images are white.

Rivera spoke of the Latino’s role in hip-hop and how the racial issues among Latinos have manifested themselves in such movements as Reggaeton (a combination of reggae and Latin dance influences).

Ward brought up the issue of “colorblind racism” and a national disengagement, meaning people are so afraid of being considered racist that dialogue on race and race relations is becoming harder to provoke among today’s youth.

The panel agreed hip-hop is a movement and in many ways the language of today’s youth, and the “old white men” who control the country either exploit it or fear it.

“Hip-hop is a common language of the youth culture, but our relevance does not have to mean their irrelevance,” Mansbach said.
