Nicki Minaj

It seems like the Catholic church aren’t the only ones upset with Nicki Minaj.

Recently a video from a man discussing some of the disparaging comments toward “nappy-headed” black women in Nicki Minaj’s songs has surfaced, and many are wondering if he has a point.

The video is mashup of black popular music from the past and images of women rocking afros and other natural ‘dos, along side some of Nicki’s seemingly anti-black women disses to her foes.

As she did in the song “Stupid Hoe,” Nicki refers to “nappy-headed hoes” in her hit, “Did It On ‘Em” and even likens her competition to monkeys on another track. According to the man behind the video, Nicki is no better Don Imus and other racist folks who celebrate European features while calling black hair and features unattractive.

While the man has a point, I think it’s unfair to single out Nicki for her remarks. While we should most certainly take a critical look at her lyrics, rappers have consistently been hurling slurs at black women for years. Why give them a pass and just focus solely on Nicki?

What do you think, Clutchettes and Gents? Should black folks boycott Nicki Minaj?

    all I no is if someone gets mad when another white person using the term ‘ nappy headed’ or ‘ monkey,’ I am going to get really upset, ok?

    “Boycott”?

    No. Boycotting would infer that I bought into her in the first place and that never happened
    Other Blacks can make their own decision on who the want to represent and who they want to represent them.

    Nicki Minaj is more a reflection of the state of the White masses anyways

    I agree 100% w/ Cali Dreaming. No offense but Nicki annoys me. She seems confused. Well, actually, she is clear on one thing, making money. So, “WHATEVER” it takes, she will gladly comply. Dentures, butt implants, skin lightening, blonde wigs, blue eyes, the works. However, if I was guaranteed that a boycott would successfully rid us of her and her weak sauce contributions to music, I would eagerly sign.
    I am all for diversity and individuality. But I don’t get this girl as an artist and I don’t like her personality as a individual.
