I think some people kind of missed the whole point of Nicki’s “Anacoda” video.

The point in some of the lyrics and parts of the videos was to show that these days, when a “skinny white woman” is pretty much naked on a magazine or even in a music video, no one would make a big deal of it. (Some people would but…just let what I just wrote sink in). Yet if a thick black woman were to do what Nicki did in her video, people would judge her, insult her, shame her, etc.

So when Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry bring black girls on stage, dance with them, acknowledge their figures- it’s offensive and appropriating. But, when Nicki Minaj makes an entire video focusing around black girl’s asses and asserts her power, reduces these women to objects and flaunts her authority it’s YAAASSSSS NICKI SERVE IT. Is that because she’s black? So it’s okay for people of the same race to dance with each other but someone who does not share the same levels of melanin enters the picture, they’re doing something wrong? …idgi
