Is Erykah Badu endorsing rape culture or better culture?
Written by Ali “Hannibal X” Shakur
Last night, Erykah Badu tweeted her opinions about the length of school girls’ skirts. As expected, she was met with social media harassment and disrespect via black feminism. Erykah is admittedly a feminist sympathizer, yet she was attacked by her fellow sisters, which contradicts the very definition of feminism. This is more evidence of how loose and malicious the group has become recently. They discuss intersectionality passionately but what about the intersection of Hotep and feminism? I guess black lives only matter when you’re not Hotep.
There was an article ruling that high school girls lower their skirts so male teachers are not distracted. I agreed because…

They want to act as if we live in a utopian society when in reality we don’t. It is as if they want to force a change upon society but that is impossible because for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. This is both a physical and metaphysical law. They contradict feminism when they take on masculine traits, like their aggressive attacks on individuals and groups of people when their opinions happen to differ.
Look at this from a common sense perspective. Since we understand that we don’t live in a utopian society, there are barriers and risks we must navigate. For example, let’s say we just bought some expensive jewelry and want to leave it in the car. We wouldn’t leave it in plain view for someone to see and be tempted to steal, we may put it in the trunk, else hide it somewhere.
This is how we should view young women and women as a whole. Like something precious, valuable and rare. Something to be protected. (Feminism views this as ownership but obtuse outlooks give me headaches.) Since we are not in a utopian society and there are miscreants amongst us, we must adjust accordingly.
Let’s look at this from the perspective of a male teacher. Firstly, these little girls don’t look like little girls anymore, be honest. The GMOs and growth hormones from the meat and milk industries reveal their effects, from my observation, in mature body attributes. Some researchers believe steroid hormones, in particular, cause girls to undergo puberty prematurely, an occurrence associated with increased risk of breast cancer later in life.
Subconsciously, meaning the thought process, not under man’s control, is conditioned with particular sets of likes that include his sexuality. If we polled every man in America and asked them if they are physically attracted to women with short skirts, nearly every straight man would say, “Yes”.
We have dealt with the subconscious but what happens on the conscious level when a girl with a short skirt is in a classroom with a male teacher? (Any woman with a short skirt for that matter.) At first, man is attracted physically because of subconscious impulses, once again out of his control. It is then that man’s morality activates and chooses whether or not to act on said attractions. A man with morals will not act on these impulses because of a girl’s young age but we can only imagine what goes through the mind of a man without morals. This is nothing but a distraction from the goal which is teaching.
Lets be frank and put down the front. Just like you wouldn’t go to work or a job interview scantily clothed, the same rules should apply to school. School is a place of professionalism and children are there to learn, not give a fashion show. Socializing should come dead last to education and the arts. For blacks, education is an achilles heel, so the last thing we should be worried about are the physical aesthetics.
I think there needs to be a fine line between what is acceptable for younger and older women. I think that line is getting blurred. The girls are dressing older at much younger ages than in the past. My momma would call them, “fast”. It seems as if these women consistently wish to side-step accountability. This is a dangerous culture black feminism is constructing for young women.
In the video below, Handy Mayhem brings up a great point. Why are women endorsing young girls with skimpy clothing? It is as if they WANT to set them up for rape or sexual harassment. They are literally sexualizing children. This is reminiscent of forced teen marriages in the Arab world, where a grown man will marry a young girl, sometimes as young as 10. I fail to see how these feminists have these young girls’ best interest at heart.
If the skirt length and fit isn’t of significance, why is it so important for these feminists to dress provocative which gives off an air of promiscuity? If it is of no significance, why embrace “hoe” and “slut” then make them synonymous with less clothing?
Allow me to close with a quick true story that includes a lesson. When King Mansa Musa visited the Arab world, he tossed gold coins wherever he went as his country held an abundance of this precious metal. This arrogance created Arab resentment and envy. Ultimately, this led to an Arab invasion of Africa and the Arab slave trade of Africans. One should be careful how they flaunt their treasures and with whom they share them with. This is still a weakness amongst blacks. The ability to appear modest and humble elude them and only creates more enemies.
