Riddle Me This: The Power of Literature Edition

I just came across this quote: "In order to change a people, you must first change their literature." -Noble Drew Ali

What does this say about the fairly recent emergence of "street literature" that has flooded retail outlets in certain geographic regions?

If you "are what you eat," would it be fair to say that you are what you read. [SIDEBAR: Books are mental food.] I would even venture to add that not only may you be what you read, you may also be how you interpret what you read...Just some food for thought.
