It's imp 4 #HipHopEd(ucators) to set the tone that stigmatizing & false accusation of HIV/AIDS is dead wrong & hypocritical

It's a tragedy when a child with a parent w/ HIV/AIDS has to still feel shame in 2014 #HipHopEd we can change this
Amil Cook @amilcook
I was thinking that AIDS is like Blk america's Ebola in some # #HipHopEd
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
We have to acknowledge that AIDS impacts us all as an issue not regulated by race, gender, preference or beliefs #HipHopEd

One of hip-hop's core components is knowledge; it is upsetting how unknowledgeable so many still are about AIDS even in 2014. #HipHopEd

Take a look at the @AIDSVu interactive map what do the demographics say? aidsvu.org/map/ #HipHopEd Map Look Familiar -> LessonIdea

Effective Sex Ed. progs. within schools using HH is critical. Media lit must b used 4 students 2 critically analyze & create media #HipHopEd
Rashidi Kweli @ProBlkThought
#Hiphoped We have a problem in HH when Meek Mill receives more notoriety for his arrest/ release than Cornel West did in #Ferguson

We have 2 develop a strategy 2 go beyond statistics & scare tactics 2 address behavior & choices #HipHopEd

The threat of a disease can not be the sole consequence that drives sex education..a condom doesn't protect your SOUL #HipHopEd

@tdj6899 AIDS can affect everyone, but politics of info, access to healthcare, etc still vary based on class/race/gender/sexuality #HipHopEd
Amil Cook @amilcook
Black women are the still getting AIDS at alarming rates...we have to keep safe sex & healthy relationships convo going #HipHopEd
Dr. Don @harlemson
Many hip-hop songs push invincibility and risky behavior...youth are ingesting these messages. We gotta interrupt...like Kanye #HipHopEd
Jon Balcerak @JonBalcerak
How/when do your schools teach about AIDS? A unit in health class? Is it addressed in history/social studies? #HipHopEd
Amil Cook @amilcook
@harlemson True & song like Thugger's Lifestyle get ridiculed but he had a safe sex message in it to that was clear #HipHopEd
Angry Teacher @MsAngryTeacher
