This should have been called "Jay Smooth on Kendrick and respectability politics…sort of."
I am a big fan of you Jay, and for the most part you're on point in this re how Kendrick is wrong (not kind of wrong). But it’s not about needing Kendrick or any rappers or artists we admire to be our saviours. It’s about not perpetuating lateral violence by publically shaming and victim blaming community. Respectability politics is lateral violence in so many ways, and this is the perfect example. Kendrick is still dope no doubt, but still needs to be checked. Would have been great to hear you go in more about respectability politics, how it =s violence and why people need to check that noise at the door.
Race and color will always be an issue. One man or woman's actions will always condemn the rest of their race to the person offended. Hell, Adams and Eves actions condemned us all to God. What makes anyone think they can stop it. You don't have to like it, but its there, and will never change until all lands unite and we somehow all become the same color. At that point it will be a sex war. Men VS Women, it is what it is. All you can do is protect yourself and your own. Your kidding yourself if you think it will ever go away.
+sinistar99 There are hundreds of false rape stories and accusations of assault. Women are treated better than human beings, but you want more. And we hear your sexist whining every single day, if you can't take it, stop dishing it out.
