“The most disrespected person in America is the black woman. The most unprotected person in America is the black woman. The most neglected person in America is the black woman.”
Regurgitating what social media has been saying about this record is pointless, the interesting element to the release of 'Lemonade' is the "backlash".
I still think she’s a wonderful singer and performer, and some of the music on Lemonade is fantastic. But I have to be honest, I preferred the old Beyoncé.
The less inflammatory, agitating one.The one who didn’t use grieving mothers to shift records and further fill her already massively enriched purse.The one who didn’t play the race card so deliberately and to my mind, unnecessarily.The one who wanted to be judged on her stupendous talent not her skin color, and wanted us all to do the same.
As I speak from a position of unawareness, I maintain that I am open to listen and learn. But an attempt at tearing down a message that is bigger than you and not for you with an attitude of righteousness is not an acceptable display of ignorance.
