Perspective: Why Should Jay-Z Get Props For Not Using The B-Word, Rappers Should Not Demean Women
Roland S. Martin: Rick Perry Was Not Ready To Play Big Boy Politics
A lot of people are giving the rapper Jay-Z his props because he has announced, now that he has a daughter with Beyoncé, he is going to stop using the b-word in his music.
I’m sorry. I don’t see that as giving somebody props, because the fact of the matter is you should have never referred to women in that way. Jay-Z, you have a mother. I’m sure you have aunts and female cousins and friends as well. Your wife — same thing.
So, why do we somehow give somebody props for something they should have been doing a long time ago?
