"Rapper Lil Wayne has certainly had his fair share of critics, but probably none quite like this. Two girls, ages 9 and 10-year-old, recently took to YouTube to rap an official letter to Weezy about his disparaging lyrics about women. They’re going by the name Watoto From the Nile, and in a professionally produced video and song, both rap over the beat to Wayne’s song 'I’m Single.' And you know what? It’s good. Really good. 'I’m a girl that’s only ten/But for my sisters I must represent,' the first girl raps. Then the nine-year-old takes her turn. 'My daddy told me I’m a queen/But you call women other things/It makes me mad/I can’t pretend/Sir/Don’t call me out my name again.'”

"[W]hen anti-bullying advocate and journalist Anderson Cooper questioned the controversial rapper about his misogynist and homophobic lyrics, Eminem gave a rather shocking reply to the question stating he was “attacked” on his violent lyricism towards women and the LGBT community because he’s a White rapper.

The 37 year-old Detroit emcee says, “I didn’t invent saying offensive things,” and suggested Black rappers aren’t singled out the way he has been.

“I felt like I was being singled out, and I felt like, is it the color of my skin?” The rapper continues, “There’s certain rappers that do and say the same things that I’m saying, and I don’t see no one saying anything about that.”

'Treva: Touching on that I'm trying to think of a culture in which women really do get a good wrap. [How] Hip-Hop treats women is not extraordinarily different from how we treat women in the world. Hip-Hop is in response to a culture where we're talking about one in four women being raped in their lifetime, if that's not a misogynistic culture then I don't know what is. We're talking about a culture where one in 12 men will rape a woman, if that's not misogyny, I don't know what is. 72 cents on the dollar is what women make for every dollar that a man makes."

"With news of the formation of an anti-Hillary group called "C.U.N.T." I think it's time to discuss the widespread disdain over so-called identity politics...It's not "petty" for people to read "Citizens United Not Timid" as an attack on women"

Thx Kimberly. "Members of “The Respect Me Coalition” marched in front of the headquarters of Interscope Records...to seek a shift in the current music culture that disrespects women, particularly African American women."

Thx HighJive. "Young black women you see shaking their nearly naked rumps in all those videos or who serve as groupies to male rappers...are willing, if misguided, participants in their own debasement."
