Welcome 2 #HipHopEd What is the platform 4 Hip-Hop within and/or apart from the political system!
Jarad Davis @jaydavis101
I'm less than satisfied with both presidential candidates' education policies. #hiphoped
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
In the spirit of Election day we wanted 2 get a little political in our discussion from a HH point of view for our community #HipHopEd
Jarad Davis @jaydavis101
It'll take a platform like #hiphoped to bring the issue of edu. to the national stage...people who actually care about the state of youth.
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
?? would we be skeptical of the relationship between Obama & Jay-Z if Obama was white? #HipHopEd
Jon Balcerak @JonBalcerak
@jaraddavis02 Yes, but a favorable environment for education seems more likely in an Obama America, no? #hiphoped
Amanda Edens @aedens1985
Super excited to (hopefully) have representation that is willing to campaign via hip hop! @andraemcgary #HipHopEd
Jarad Davis @jaydavis101
@JonBalcerak They both seem in favor of a nauseating amount of standardized testing...But yes, I'd rather have Obama's policy. #hiphoped
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
Hip-Hop is old enough 2 function in all levels of society staying true 2 an agenda of the people by the people 4 real #HipHopEd

Hip-hop has been used as a a tool for garnering votes but has not been not viewed as a respected voting bloc #HipHopEd

#hiphoped checking in Family.... This election is like a boxing match!!!! That's the conundrum. What is the HH platform?
Brandon M. Frame @brandonframe
Youth sociopolitical issues directly link to hip hop’s cultural movement. #HipHopEd
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
I feel that there must be an acknowledgement & a relationship with HH that goes beyond Jay-Z #HipHopEd
Raphael Travis Jr. @raptjr
#HipHopEd getting on the road. Will miss the chat. Platform... Reinvest in youth. Not piecemeal... full scale investment in the whole youth.
Timothy Jones @tdj6899
The HH platform should be 1 that advocates for the services & education that was lacking when HH was created #HipHopEd
Diane Hardy @dianitahardy
@chrisemdin There has been a lot of chatter among my students about Jay-Z's involvement. All positive. #HipHopEd
DNLee @DNLee5
very true @chrisemdin Hip-hop has been used as a a tool for garnering votes but has not been not viewed as a respected voting bloc #HipHopEd
Brandon Zoras @brandonzoras
@tdj6899 agreed! way before Jay-Z, it was about getting a message out, sharing societal frustrations and success of marginalized #hiphoped
Robinson: M.E. @Knight3k
@tdj6899 #HipHopEd this is where race matters, I think Jay-Z latched on the ethnicity factor.. Funny though Jay-Z's actions are rather GOP
Christopher Emdin @chrisemdin
Hip-hop lyrics clearly outline the political concerns of an underserved population. Unfortunately, politicians aren't listening #HipHopEd
Jon Balcerak @JonBalcerak
Off-topic, but I'm using Public Enemy, KRS-1, Gorillaz & Flobots this week 2 teach Transcendentalism in my Eng class. #HipHopEd

The thing is that I don't know what hip-hop really values that maps onto a voting platform. #HipHopEd
