Are insults and discrimination a necessary part of rap? Where are the limits and why would so many be reluctant that their younger siblings to hear the music of rappers Kolkugah and Farid Bang? – questions that the students of the Mathilde Planck School in Lörrach will certainly be busy with for a long time to come.

Within the framework of a democracy project, they examined the texts of the two German rappers. The lyrics of these musicians often contain misogynistic, homophobic, and anti-Semitic content; an examination of them is thus at the same time a confrontation with values and democracy. For their project, the young people conducted a survey among their classmates. The results will be presented in a small exhibition. The project was funded by the Baden-Württemberg Democratic Centre. Our colleague from Freiburg, economist Stefan Moog, helped to evaluate the survey and to prepare the results. Prognos also contributed 500 euros towards the production and printing of exhibition posters.
