White singers deserve the same scrutiny for sexism as Snoop Dogg

White singers deserve the same scrutiny for sexism as Snoop Dogg

“I am not excusing the misogyny present in a fair chunk of rap music, nor am I hoping that organisations like Collective Shout protest the entry of every artist with a criminal history or dodgy back catalogue. Instead, I am questioning why the behaviour and lyrics of artists like Snoop Lion, Tyler the Creator, and Kanye West are held to account while others appear to get a free pass.

If perpetrating and glorifying violence against women is unacceptable, then it should be without caveats. If one group of people or style of music is being scrutinised more heavily than another, perhaps it is not only an issue of gender but also an issue of race.”
