"We cannot separate the culture of objectification of women from literal, physical attacks, where women of color are often disproportionately targeted due to their exotification and stereotyped hypersexuality."

Curator comment: Sexual irresponsibility cannot be adequately addressed without continual acknowledgement of our rapacious cultural appetite for sexual exploitation.

Following some of the links from this article resulted in the discovery of the wonderful SPARK, "a girl-fueled activist movement to demand an end to the sexualization of women and girls in media."

“I’m looking at whether Nicki Minaj’s hyper-sexuality through her body and her appearance promotes rigid gender types, and then whether that enforces ideas of homophobia within hip-hop,” Mcginty says. She is also examining Minaj’s gay male alter ego, Roman Zolanski, and whether her performance of a man plays into her hyper-sexuality or complicates it.

The below quote is an excerpt from the article in which I find really interesting, "...........This Afro-Brazilian community was also a big consumer of African-American styles of music. They could not understand exactly what African-Americans were saying due to the language barrier, but because of the civil rights imagery on the covers of vinyl records, they understood what these musicians were talking about."


Interesting perspectivies on how Hip Hop influences other genres.  Good read.
