    Hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons and civil rights activist Dr. Benjamin Chavis are asking the rap community to refrain from using offensive and misogynistic words like "bitch," "ho" and "n*gger" in the future. The two representatives of the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network insist that rappers should censor themselves and act as role models.

    "We recommend the formation of a music industry Coalition on Broadcast Standards, consisting of leading executives from music, radio and television industries," a statement from the Hip-Hop Summit Action Network read. "The Coalition would recommend guidelines for lyrical and visual standards within the industries. We also recommend that the recording industry establish artist mentoring programs and forums to stimulate effective dialogue between artists, hip-hop fans, industry leaders and others to promote better understanding and positive change."
