Thx for this post
"Hyperbole" means exaggeration of *what's being said*. It is not saying something else. If Messrs Baiden and Imus exaggerate their hateful comments about women in this way, their underlying unexaggerated message remains hateful.
In contrast, compare the tenor of their comments to this:
"If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don't expose it to the elements. You don't make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special *because you have made it so*, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.
"Eternal marriage is just like that. We need to treat it just that way. I pray that we may see it for the priceless gift that it is."
- F. Burton Howard
As you noted, Hip Hop's mainstreaming / assimilation follows the same road down which jazz went. These are examples of what is both the survival secret and the nemesis of our open culture. As Allan Bloom noted, "There is in American society a mad rush to distinguish oneself, and, as soon as something has been accepted as distinguishing, to package it in such a way that everyone can feel included."
-- "The Closing of the American Mind," p. 183
Earlier, I watched acceptance, not defeat, end the hippie movement and the same pattern keeps weaving itself among us as cultural innovations' suffusion dilutes them to the lowest common denominator that will embrace them.
