" She Was Working Like Fo' Real" but, what is she working for?
I agree that majority of degrading music is promoted by the White company executives. I feel that many of the women in the videos come from the inmprovished conditions that Richardson speaks of but, that is no reason to do the things they do. Throughout this course we have read that Black women sometimes lack the voice to advocatee from themselves but, once they do their voice is heard. During NSO week I found out that Spelman protesteed Nelly's video also and their voice was heard because they banned him from the campus and also did not donate marrow to his sick sister. That is a fine example of how if Black women advocate and stop feeding into the steereotypes promoted by the media their voice can be heard because besides the green thats what they are working for...a voice.
