    Homegirls Make Some Noise

    Black Noise

    When Chickenheads Come to Roost

    That’s what I came up with off the TOP OF MY GODDAMN HEAD and a google for ” hip hop women anthology”

    Bt you know what maybe I’m a lil too close

    It’s not like it’s full of oversexualized women who use their wiles to demand impossible tokens and break up friendships

    Violent deaths after compromised  honor or loyalty

    Promiscuity and prostitution

    Or lust sex and violence usually with bombast and huge instrumentals

    OH WAIT !!THAT’S THE BOOK OF ARIAS I picked up

    Hip hop isn’t perfect , it isn’t without fault , but if you tell me that this is a bastion of some kind of EXTRA SPECIAL ( as opposed to specific ) misogyny

    I’m gonna throw said aria book at you .

    Rape culture is in fact a culture which has many parts and is NOT a buzz word to justify whatever the heck you wanna demonize become a flat c

    If your grand statement about hip hop dialogue or hip hop culture needs to erase the
    MULTITUDE OF VOICES OF BLACK WOMEN

    to validate your ( usually classist self aggrandizing )moment of truth telling

    STOP

    no seriously just stop

    There is an epic undercurrent of what is a ” proper and correct ” black woman to these discussions of representation that is frankly making my TEETH ITCH

    as if we can’t advocate for violence and proper treatment till we get our crioline’s straight and our pumps properly polished

    or the ability to express sexuality

    or

    duress

    or anger

    and I’m gonna be real here if the expression of your idea or your vision requires the erasure of black women becuase they don’t fit your ” image” or comfort of what women should be

    WHILE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE USING THEIR EXISTANCE AND WORK TO JUSTIFY YOUR POSITION

    how in the ever loving HELL is that different from what you claim to be fighting?

    or if this needs a white persons stamp of approval to be viewed as worthy

    Harvard has a hip hop archive . Notice anything?
