Black Women : Hip Hop & Black women "You're not a 'B' or a H-e"

You know, while I've heard this issue 1000 times, I see this topic point the finger at all hip hop male artists rather than focus on mainstear hip hop amle artists and the companies who promote them.

Let me say that again.

This is not a hip hop atitude issue. This is a music company and slave-artist marketing issue. The fact that this degradation to black women mostly comes from the "mainstream hip hop" artist. This means that the songs, video messages, promotion, and marketing of the ideas that degrade you, sister, are not the work of the mainstream artists alone, but the companies as well. I would dare say that it is mainly the fault of the companies. The artist is merely the slave spitting what his masters tell him to.

I've been saying for years that the mainstream is not the way to go to promote your art, because the companies that cause the mainstream to exist believe three harmful American concepts:

1 sex sells
2 greed sells
3 violence/anger sells

If you look carefully at all popular mainstream music, at some point an artist under the thumb of the mainstream is made to say these things. The worst part of it all is that somewhere along the line, an impressionable soul picks up the intended message: if you want to be successful doing this, you have to do and say things to debase youur own people. That's how we got about 90% of the new artists that are out there now.

Talaam Acey said it all best with his video, which I'll post shortly.

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
