"Hip-Hop was created by urban youth of color more than 30 years ago amid racial oppression and economic marginalization. It has moved beyond that specific community and been embraced by young people worldwide, elevating it to global youth culture. The ambitious and hard-hitting documentary Blacking Up: Hip-Hop's Remix of Race and Identity looks at the popularity of Hip-Hop among America's white youth. It asks whether white identification is rooted in admiration and a desire to transcend race or if it is merely a new chapter in the long continuum of stereotyping, mimicry, and cultural appropriation? Does it reflect a new face of racial understanding in white America or dies it reinforce an ugly history?"
