Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
"I don’t need people to think for me. I’ve never been that way and I don’t ever want to be that way […] There’s no reason to argue because when it gets to that point, I’m just saying, ask me.”
Ugh… Random late night drives with the bae are everything.
I was always this type of dude. Maybe not with every one I dated but definitely with the ones I felt a real connection with.
I only did this with one girl.
And that’s cause she was my best friend..
