In a sweeping analysis that cuts across racial, ethnic, and class lines, Jackson Katz examines mass shootings, day-to-day gun violence, violence against women, bullying, gay-bashing, and American militarism against the backdrop of a culture that has normalized violent and regressive forms of masculinity in the face of challenges to traditional male power and authority.

MUSIC VIDEOS, SEXISM AND VIOLENCE
· Byron Hurt – Violence and Hip Hop(2009): HIP-HOP: Beyond Beats and Rhymes (video is good for male and female attitudes)
Filmmaker Byron Hurt, a life-long hip-hop fan, was watching rap music videos on BET when he realized that each video was nearly identical. Guys in fancy cars threw money at the camera while scantily clad women danced in the background. As he discovered how stereotypical rap videos had become, Hurt, a former college quarterback turned activist, decided to make a film about the gender politics of hip-hop, the music and the culture that he grew up with. The more I grew and the more I learned about sexism and violence and homophobia, the more those lyrics became unacceptable to me, he says. And I began to become more conflicted about the music that I loved. The result is HIP-HOP: Beyond Beats and Rhymes, a riveting documentary that tackles issues of masculinity, sexism, violence and homophobia in todays hip-hop culture.
