For Colored Girls who feel like Black Bitches after watching BET

In Poetically Speaking on May 30, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Who says women aren’t stepping up and fighting back?  We came across this no holds barred poetess and had to share this one for the sisters..

 

“For Colored Girls who feel like Black Bitches after watching BET”

Got me feeling like maybe
I am just a bad bitch or buss-it baby
Nothing more than a D cup and round butt
Face down and ass up
Dropping it low for he with the biggest bankroll
Cause she on TV looks just.. like… me
In red lip gloss, a corset, and lace weave
Ready to suck it off or get laid
Oversexed and underpaid
I
Am an all week freak
All blonde streaks
And ass cheeks
To rap beats

I
Am a consumer
Compulsive buyer
All I do is shop and bop
Off these tricks or the gov’ment
Compulsive liar
See me on Maury, yelling, “Sorry!”
“This gotta be wrong!”
And still pop that P for the theme song

I
Am
A loudmouth bitch
Checking his email, voicemail
Facebook, and Twitter
And if I see another chick picture with some glitter
Imma get wit her
His space is MySpace –
I’m all in his face
And if it’s a problem, I’m running up behind him
Wynita Bynum
Yeah, I know you HEARD me!
Fat, Black, and insecure
Martin Lawrence, Eddie Murphy
I deserve to get fucked on the floor like Halle Berry
Cause that’s the game, girlfriends,
Kelsey Grammer, Tyler Perry
Hell to the naw
And you can’t get wit it if you can’t follow this ass in the mall
And if they wanna be like Mike and go White
Or like Tiger and rather find her Caucasian bussing tables
Than Black with an education
I’ll go dyke
Like Nicki or Eve –
I am B.E.T.
And you can’t change me
Unless you change the station.

Exploitate The Unsuspected

In Education, Events on May 3, 2010 at 7:33 am

“We demand an end to the exploitation of our talent by outside forces.”

Can we really stress that point in 9th issue of the Millions More Movement enough? Maybe we should just roll up on rec execs, corporate fat cats, and the docile masses with bullhorns because the games that are being played just keep getting worse. So here we are in 2010 with the launch of a national hip-hop museum on behalf of a generation that culture can’t deny. (though Texas may try) And though many say and feel that a national hip hop museum is long overdue we have to ask is this effort truly reflective of those who have paved the way in Hip Hop or is it just another way to produce profit at our expense? This is some of what KRS had to say:

“Here is what we are dealing with, ladies and gentleman. We have been trying to start a hip-hop museum for over 20 years. In fact, it was Afrika Bambaataa that came up with the idea. However, most of the people who have been behind the hip-hop museum idea seem to always create groups without addressing the pioneers themselves.”

Towards Response-ability Within the Culture: Are YOU on board?

The MIA Music Is Alive Campaign for Hip Hop Service

The Hip Hop Day of Service is a call for Hip Hop to reflect on the direction of the culture in the spirit of examination and revitalization.  It’s about accountability and collective responsibility of artists to their communities and will serve as a time  for artists, activists, and youth to unite and collectively perform humanitarian and charitable services within their local cities. It is not a singular event or 24 hour day it is the dawn of a new era. Spearheading this much needed day in hip hop history, is a national campaign that launches this fall. This campaign is an arts movement that emphasizes that if we all were to unite under one umbrella within our respective organizations we can become more powerful and be in a better position to challenge current trends that are destroying our communities.
The visionaries and and participants of this movement are everyday artists and activists who want to make a difference. We are teachers, students, independent artists, grassroots activists, humanitarians, parents, sons, and daughters. We are the response to a worldwide cultural epidemic on a quest to  mobilize and galvanize our intellectual and creative minds in an effort to regain control over all facets of our creative expression. Its bigger than hip-hop though hip-hop’s influence and true cause is a phenomenal component in this mission.
This campaign is about recognizing the power of the arts on a massive scale that transcends far beyond ‘the block’ into the poverty stricken villages of Africa all the way to the graffiti stained alley ways of China. We are they who recognize music as not only the art of organized sound but as a universal language inseparable from the human condition.
