sosporadic replied to your post: Lupe Fiasco sparks debate with new video for “Bitch Bad”
I’ve been listening to this song for weeks. I love the song the message is a conversation starter. I think it’s awesome but it’s sad a lot of people won’t get anything out of the video and they’ll just write him off as being lame.
That’s what I’m worried about. I’ve been playing the song on my radio show since it came out and it’s one of my most requested. The song’s messgae IS a conversation starter. I think it indirectly highlights an element of privilege white women have — a white woman can label herself a bitch and even put it on a bumper sticker or t-shirt, but if a woman of color does it, it has a much different, and sometimes more harmful meaning.
