Once

upon

a

time,

women rapped and kept their under garments on and just spit their lyrics.

Only a few pictures of men could get glimpse of a bathing suit  a bra top or  a wardrobe  malfunction but that was it, it would go no further. Lets be clear, I also adore most female rappers in this industry but these are half-naked most of the time because is it so common place these days.

When you are an avid activist of women In the arts, such as myself, you understand  Lil Kim and Mrs. Minaj and message of female expression and empowerment, even if you don’t care for the perception and the molding of the young female minds. They are both beautiful women with a message to women, but not little girls!

However unfortunate  but obvious is that  women have abandoned the life lessons of solidarity and we are culture “Miseducated” but that money will overshadow the power to our people and education of our youth  will make millions these days.

 

The revised rap blue print for women   is  a paradox to the Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill and her foreshadowing on the slut like activity of women that we celebrate and even honor at the Grammys.

Lauryn was cut from a different cloth and opened our ears to self-pride and self- preservation.

Apparently the Hip Hop Nation will not be able to envision another genius who also carried herself like a queen, and not a “Trap Queen.”

 

Back then, a person would not be half-naked every day unless she was a day time hooker.

While we as women and men  should be someway protesting, and demanding fair treatment by men, we are subconsciously every stereotype to “keep” a man.

        Thanks to Snap Chat, Twitter, and  Instigram we are so disillusioned of  what is substantive or superficial?

      No pictures of Queen Latifah‘s big draws or MC Lyte‘s   panties would have been posted all over social media.

We relentlessly speak of Women Empowerment, but that is not what the younger listeners are going to identify with and embrace.

        The message of mental strength is lost with butt shots, mindless sex and  money over anything genuine in this life. We have to nourish our families physically and psychologically

       We don’t comprehended how lost and fake we are in this world and Kendrick Lamar is kicking off that knowledge.

Lauryn Hill foreshadowed our mental and spiritual weakening  and the truth was too scary for her so she escaped her public existence and moved out of the industry.

      Mrs. Hill is the woman who could have been on the level of Nina Simone,but she escaped her surroundings and lost her musical vision in this ever-changing hasty culture.

 

It is challenging to stand up for your self-respect and principles when you are trying to protect your people, usually the backlash comes from  your message from the very people you are trying to empower.

Feministically Beautiful And Honest*Colbie Coliat* Tries ***messymandella***

What makes you stand out from the rest?
How do you feel about living your own way and on your own terms?
The world is completely in need of strong-minded and unique fashionistas that want to stand out above the rest. Can you honestly say that you stand alone? No, because you need love and equality. You can have both, but first look at how women of all ages and ethnicities are beautiful. Instead of hating,compliment each other and don’t be a contouring clone. “Try” to be unique!

Speak Up Against Domestic Abuse!***messymandella***NSFW – We Love You Michel’le

“Why would he do it?”
“Did I deserve it?”
“Can it really change?”
“Maybe, I should stop bothering him?”
“I am stressing him out, I should have let him talk.”
“She only hits me when I interrupt her.”
“I can’t hit her back, no matter what.”
“She embarrassed me, so I punched her.”

After spending the night with a friend at the age of 14 and watching her dad beat up her mom, throw her in an ant bed, kick her in the face, bloody her nose,  threaten to kill himself If we called the cops, I have NO TOLERANCE! She kept apologizing to me, and she was the victim!

Children’s lives change once they witness domestic abuse.

Thanks Gotti, for telling this story.

This illustrates the story of the child watching this injustice.
