Washington, Mar 12 (ANI): Jay-Z has said that hip-hop has improved race relations across America, claiming that white kids that idolise him and Snoop Dogg don”t become racists.

The rapper pointed out that the musical genre and its related culture is not looked down upon anymore, as youngsters dont feel the race divide at all.

“It has changed America immensely… Hip-hop has done more than any leader, politician, or anyone to improve race relations, Contactmusic quoted Jay-Z as saying.

“Racism is taught in the home… and it’’s very hard to teach racism to a teenager who idolises, say, Snoop Dogg. It’’s hard to say, ”That guy is less than you.” The kid is like, ”I like that guy, he’’s cool. How is he less than me?”

“That’’s why this generation is the least racist generation ever. You see it all the time. Go to any club. People are intermingling, hanging out, enjoying the same music,” he added. (ANI)
