A successful black woman who constantly (and openly) tells her young fans to stay in school is declined from speaking to the students at a high school she went to. I dont know what the said principal was thinking for unwelcoming Nicki Minaj, but judging my people’s comments, I am assuming that it is based on respectability politics and moral judgement, both of which are absent from the picture when it comes to rich white dude in suits who are suppose to be our examples of success. Think about the corruption, the oppression of workers, racism, sexist, homophobia etc. that comes along in the suitcases of people who are usually looked up as models of inspirations. CEOs, politicians, bankers most of who have inherited their “success” and unfortunately the legacy of the many “isms” usually required to maintain the status quo be it of wealth or power. And then comes somebody like Nicky Minaj, an immigrant Black woman raised in New York who is un-apologetically vocal about her truths, and has managed to create a space for herself in a male dominated industry, and continues to show characteristics of a complex movement that feminism is. Nicky Minaj who maybe has her set of flaws but nothing as dangerous as the faults of many others who have never even had to face any charges, let alone declared guilty.
Whoever wrote this is retarded. Nikki doesn’t need to be around anyone, let alone “inspire” HS. students. Yes she has made a great life for herself. But I wouldn’t want her around my kid especially my daughter. She has become a woman who thinks shaking her fake ass and tits around gets her attention. And I even give her attention but I’ll let you know it’s 100% for the wrong reason. She has nothing good to say because if she did she wouldn’t have such a negative outlook on herself.
I love boobs.
Wish sappy love stories never existed because they give girls the false idea that that shit actually happens and there is no hope for the rest of society who actually has to try very fucking hard
