I’ve long argued the insanity of marking the moral compass of the Black community on the movement and activities of rappers. NOT because I think rappers are exempt from critique, but BECAUSE they are, for the most part, KIDS!

“Porn teaches men they are gods. Pop culture teaches men that the epitome of success is to be surrounded by naked women, fawning over you. Prostitution exists because we, as a culture, very much believe that women exist to pleasure men. We tell women that they have to “work” in marriage, to keep their men happy, to keep them from straying — buy sexy lingerie, try threesomes, try anal, perform every porn fantasy he has — he needs it, he deserves it, it is your job.”—
