Patriotism is best exemplified through auto-critique.

Henry Louis Gates

The materialism, the brashness, the misogyny - everything in hip-hop is amplified. Misogyny is a good example of something that is completely amplified in hip-hop. I do think there is more than enough of a balance, though, for fans who are willing to search it out.
On average, people should be more skeptical when they see numbers. They should be more willing to play around with the data themselves.
