Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
I have part of a plan.
This is one of the purest and goodest videos that exists on the web

'I love my sword. I don't want to brag, but I think I have the coolest sword in the movie and that's high praise because there are quite a few very famous swords in this story. Weta Workshop did an incredible job with my sword. It is carved out of one piece of metal. I stopped by the Workshop to watch it being made. It's a little two-handed katana-like blade, the size of my leg — an incredibly beautiful weapon.'
