Lyric Content Protest Scheduled In NYC Today

The Rev. AL SHARPTON will be among a group of activists attending the NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK (NAN)'s march protesting sexism, racism, and homophobia in music and images perpetuated in the recording industry tomorrow (5/3), reports ALLHIP-HOP.COM.
"We need to deal with N-word and the misogyny of calling our women b***hes and hoes," SHARPTON said. "No other community is disparaged by these record companies, but us."
The march kicks off at 5:30p at the SONY MUSIC building on 55th Street and Madison Ave. and will be led by NAN decency initiative director TAMIKA MALLORY and Councilwoman DARLENE MEALY of BROOKLYN's 41st District. Marchers will then head to the WARNER MUSIC GROUP building, located at 75 Rockefeller Plaza, as well as the UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP building on 49th Street and 8th Ave. and the TIME WARNER Building on 58th Street and Broadway. NAN will then host a rally, which is scheduled to take place at the event's final stop at COLUMBUS CIRCLE.
