NPR's Cogent Politico-Historic Perspective

I just heard on an NPR convention segment about a new political phenomenon called the "hip-hop voter". As one twenty-something guy explained, these are young people who communicate and share their political beliefs such as opposing war through music.

I'm impressed with the depth of that trenchant analysis. There has never been anything like this in history. Why, go as far back as the '60s and you won't find anything like music being an organizing tool to protest war and the dominant American culture. The hip-hop voter is truly an amazing invention of today's youth, elucidated by NPR's astute, history-aware journalists.
