Aye, the transmisogyny.... --AP
“'Morehouse wasn’t ready for me,' says Diamond, who has the word 'unbreakable' tattooed on his collarbone and the acronym C.R.E.A.M ('Cash Rules Everything Around Me' coined by rap group Wu Tang Clan) wrapped around his right wrist. 'I’m about freedom of expression. I’m about being whomever you truly are inside. I came to Morehouse because of all the historical leaders that attended and impacted the world so heavily. You know, I really wanted to follow in their footsteps. I don’t think Morehouse believes that someone like me—someone who wears heels and dresses—can uphold that reputation. But they’re wrong.'
“'We respect the identity and choices of all young men at Morehouse,' Dr. Bynum said via email. 'However, the Morehouse leadership development model sets a certain standard of how we expect young men to dress, and this attire does not fit within the model. Our proper attire policy expresses that standard.'”

"In the popular imagination, African music is the antithesis of urban. It's folk music, music of the bush, music of mythical village cultures that are still intact. Kwaito, born in townships and featuring occasionally misogynistic lyrics and a whiff of gangsterism, doesn't fit that image. Of course, the image is absolute nonsense: one of the first African sounds to make global inroads was jit, the sound of urban Zimbabwe in the 1980s. But you can see, even in its packaging, how this need to imagine Africa as exclusively rural persists: recently a reviewer rightly castigated the African Pearls compilation for an album cover that featured barefoot women dancing around a baobab tree — for a compilation of urban 1970s music from Senegal. It's quite a cheap trick."
