Valenti’s White Feminist Legacy: How to erase people of colour from a genre they created

MCA’s Feminist Legacy: How the Beastie Boys brought hope to female hip hop fans

jessicavalenti:

For one of the first times, the music I loved loved me back.

GROSSSSSSSSSSS TO THE MAX.
WHAT THE FUCK. 

Like, please. Fuck off, Valenti.

“For one of the first times, the music I loved loved me back?” Is that some kind of bullshit dig at the rest of the rap music, the “big, black scary misogynistic” kind you white feminists love to shit on? Is that some kind of not-that-subliminal message that you couldn’t stomach rap music unless it was at the hands of three white men who occasionally said some shit about abuse because it’s not like black rap artists never talked about sexism? I guess the other topics discussed in rap/hip-hop never really spoke volumes to you, huh?

For you to elevate the Beastie Boys as some kind of representatives for “the music you loved” (rap) when in reality they were and have always been a minority in said genre, like. You are showing your ass real good. Real fucking good.

Let’s be real: the Beastie Boys were great to some people and that’s fine. But you know what bugs me about them and subsequently this article? The fact that all it took for them to make a name was being white boys in a black genre and speaking up. I’m not even going to talk about their anti-sexist ideals—wonderful things were done and I won’t deny that, but people stay acting like the Beasite Boys were some kind of feminist island in a genre full of black men who like talking about bitches. Fuck that. Y’all can keep trying to erase the efforts of anti-sexist black rappers, but I won’t. 

I’m glad it took the Beastie Boys speaking up about shit only you care about for you to realize that “[rap] loved you back,” Valenti—but it’s whatever. 

also a commentor of the nation blog post wrote this, which sums up the whole problem quite neatly:

…while I appreciate the sentiment quite a bit, the way it seems like you’re giving cookies to the one white hip hop group while talking about how the rest of the genre is so misogynistic is kind of making me a bit uncomfortable.

What about all the feminist female MCs of color? What about the black and Latino MCs who had similar messages about respecting women?

A note about my MCA post

strugglingtobeheard:

jessicavalenti:

A couple of people have criticized this post at The Nation as being offensive or marginalizing in that it didn’t mention other hip hop artists of color who were feminist friendly, and that I didn’t discuss misogyny in music more broadly. I’m reposting what I wrote over at comments for the post:

This wasn’t a piece about hip hop as a whole - it was about my experience with this particular hip hop group. While I listened to (and listen to) lots of music that I thought had a feminist message (ie, MC Lyte, Queen Latifah), including a broader analysis of hip hop and misogyny or pointing out other female-friendly artists would have detracted from what the point of this piece was - a thank you to a musician who died.

look at this pathetic ass excuse. i guess she think’s we are dumb as fuck huh? especially the Black women, like we can’t see right through the garbage.

this is a total cop out. there was a LOT of space to talk about other feminist friendly hip hop artists in her piece. she just didn’t want to.

i LOVE Missy’s “Hit Em Wit Da Hee” remix. She’s letting you know that she is not here for an aint-shit nigga. 

"Just cuz you cash a check and put it in the bank/that don’t make me wanna go out and sleep with you/I got my own ride and gas in the tank/Thanks but no thanks I won’t be needing you"


YES Missy. Let these dudes out here know that just cuz they got money and a good job don’t mean he’s entitled to sex or worth your time!
