"Bitch Bad/ Woman Good/ Lady Better/ They Misunderstood" - Lupe Fiasco

 

 

   I suddenly had an inspiration when I got Lupe Fiasco's newest album (and hopefully not his last), Food and Liquor 2

 

Which brought me here.....

   I think this song brings about the age old argument; Where is the line between the act of creative expression, which can both inform and entertain, and the degrading act that we interpret as coonery or buffoonery? This always brings me to a crossroad because I believe that majority of what we hail as the epitome of artistic endeavor, can arguably be the very expression that tears the image, especially in Black America.

 

   At the end of the day, it all leads back to perception. In Lupe's video, he elequently states how the perception of a "bad bitch" can be misinterpreted, therefore dictating a consequence that I've seen far too many times in my life and the lives of the people around me. It is but a small microcosm of what is going on in this country. It's time for us as people to define who we are, what we do, and where we stand, without the help of a groupthink....

 

 

I could go on, but who cares.......
