Score one for Magic!

The Laker legend wants to enlist hip hop and R&B artists to help raise HIV awareness in the African American community.

He hopes that with the help of rappers and singers, homophobia will decrease within Black culture.

Magic writes:

I learned a lot from the white gay community because they had gotten their community, rallied them, educated them and did a wonderful job about driving the numbers down. That is the best approach that I've seen; it's been the most effective. So what we try to do in our community is bring those results to us. So I'm working hard to continue to educate minorities about HIV and AIDS and we've got to band together. We're too fragmented right now, but if we can do that, we're going to do well.

As a hip-hop fan, you realize that homophobia is still an issue everywhere, but especially in the black community. When people are scared to talk about it, that's how the disease spreads. So what have you been doing to get that risk reduced?

Magic also goes on about the power of hip hop and its community. He hopes that reaching out to its stars will help HIV and equal rights movements.

It will be interesting to see how this ends up.

Magic, you are an inspiration to us all!
