Nicki Minaj: I’m Tired Of Black Women Feeling When Our Men Get Rich They’ll Leave Us For White Girls
We already shared some highlights from Nicki Minaj’s cover story with Marie Claire but there’s another interesting remark made during the interview that is now making headlines, and it’s this:
“I’m so tired of Black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race. “It wasn’t funny when Kanye said, ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your a– for a white girl’, and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the f-cking truth.”
Nicki is far from the only Black woman who feels that way, but few, if any, famous Black women have been so bold as share that sentiment in a public space — particularly a mainstream publication that caters to white women. And, of course, people have distracted from the main issue Nicki was speaking to, instead claiming the rapper is slamming Kanye West rather than realizing there are many Kanyes out there who’ve left Black women for white girls and that’s the real problem.
Nicki responded to the disparaging headlines on Twitter, writing:
“Slams” a man/genius who gave me one of the biggest looks of my career? I said he wasn’t kidding, he was speaking the TRUTH about d industry
I was saying he’s the one who said it first. He doesn’t apologize for his choices. He tells the truth about stuff ppl don’t wanna hear!
Now if only Nicki would take it a step further and expose why some of these men do what they do.
