I don’t know about you but I saw Nicki Minaj’s recent posts on Instagram as commentary on the clear double standard between displays people’s reaction of white and black women’s sexuality. The last picture, the newly released cover of her new single “Anaconda”, has received some backlash for it’s display of Nicki’s behind.
THIS IS WHY I WANT TO FEED WHITE FEMINISTS TO SHARKS BECAUSE OF SHIT LIKE THIS. WHITE WOMEN LIKE PRANCING AROUND TALKING ABOUT SEXUAL LIBERATION AND DOING SLUT WALKS WHILE BLACK WOMEN ARE CONSTANTLY DENIED THE RIGHT TO BE SEXY, TO “FLAUNT” TO BE ANYTHING OTHER THAN SEXLESS MAMMIES. WHENEVER WE WANT TO DO THE SAME SHIT WHITE WOMEN DO, SUDDENLY IT’S WRONG, WE’RE “SETTING FEMINISM BACK” AND “PANDERING TO THE MALE GAZE.” EXCUSE ME? PANDERING TO THE MALE GAZE? MOTHERFUCKER THERE ARE PLENTY OF BITCHES LIKE ME GAZING AT THE ASS FOR MORE THAN AESTHETIC.
HOW MUCH ASS WE SHOW OR SHAKE SHOULD NOT GAUGE HOW MUCH YOU RESPECT US.
BLACK WOMEN DESERVE THE RIGHT TO BE SEXY AND RESPECTED,
Either we’re sexless Mammies or loose Jezebels, but every single thing we do still has an air of sexual deviance attached to it.
