Title: The Culture Industry, Hip Hop Music, And The White Perspective: How One Dimensional Representation Of Hip Hop Music Has Influenced White Racial Attitudes
Author: Hart, Walter Edward
Abstract: This theoretical study builds from Ben Agger's theory in his 1992 book, Cultural Studies as Critical Theory:The ideological outcomes of the culture industry are in a sense unintended; they emerge in the interplay of authorial, directorial, and audience assumptions about the nature of the world. (Agger 1992:65)I theorize the effect of the culture industry's cycle of assumptions on the one-dimensional representation of hip hop music and its reflection and reinforcement of Whites' perceptions of Blacks and Black Culture. The reinforcement of Whites' historically negative racial attitudes emerge unintended through a complex cycle of assumptions between the director (culture industry), the author (hip hop artist), and the audience (White consumers).
