Talib Kweli Responds To Slim Thug’s Comment About Black Women

The thing that really bothers me is that the people who really took offense to it make generalizations all the time. If someone says men are all dogs, is that OK to make that generalization? Why is it OK to say that and flip it but for him not to express himself in a blog? They’re both generalizations but the only difference is if you say, “Niggas ain’t s**t or all men are dogs,” there’s no real explanation. At least with his blog, even if you’re offended by it, it’s way more articulate than saying “Niggas aint s**t,” and if you have ever said that, and I’m making a generalization here that most women have said that at some point in they life, you can’t really be mad at what he said. You don’t have to agree, but you can’t be mad.

So because someone makes a generalization you have to spew venom at them and talk about you’re not gonna support their music and you’re gonna unfollow? All that s**t is extra. It’s like we can disagree and discourse without being disrespectful to each other. The reason I feel like I can say what I said is because I put in my work when it comes to representing black women in my art. Can’t nobody tell me s**t when it comes to the way I put in work for black women! We all have things to learn and I don’t claim to be perfect in my music but I feel like Slim Thug—the things he said are real problems in our community. He really couldn’t articulate on a so-called intellectual level what the reasons are for these pathologies—the racism, the problems in our relationships—so from his perspective, white chicks would treat him better. I know plenty of black dudes that feel the same way. I don’t agree with them but I understand why they say it. I don’t agree that all men are dogs but I understand why women would say that.
