Forbes recently boldly stated, “Hip Hop Is Run By A White, Blonde, Australian Woman” and this caused an up roar across social media. Lets not forget that Forbes Magazine is a financial magazine that focuses on finances of the rich and famous. Since when did they start sharing their views on who’s running hip hop?
Sadly, this is far too common in mainstream entertainment. We’ve seen this happen to other genres of music such as Rock, Blues, & Jazz. At one point each of these genres were spear headed by predominantly black culture and now the race is near non-existent. Having Forbes even utter those words isn’t only bold, but highly offensive to all that Nicki Minaj has done for women in a short amount of time.
