“That person is racist” vs. “that costume is racist” – “It comes up every Halloween. It comes up at every pop culture convention that includes cosplay. It comes up at any time costumes are appropriate (concerts, music videos, etc). The issue of what costumes are or aren’t racist.”
The passion of Nicki Minaj – “Pop music is dominated almost exclusively by the female star…these women are the pop business now, and they’re not feeling particularly shy about telling us that. Their primary message has become one of being the woman you actually have to be behind the scenes to succeed today: powerful, outspoken and in control.” From Courtney.
