Megan Thee Stallion writes New York Times op-ed on protecting Black women

Megan Thee Stallion wrote a New York Times op-ed addressing her activism and the disrespect Black women face. The editorial, titled “Why I Speak Up For Black Women,” explored Megan’s experience as a Black woman in hip-hop and explained why she’s no longer afraid of criticism.

“In the weeks leading up to the election, Black women are expected once again to deliver victory for Democratic candidates,” she wrote in the piece, which was published Tuesday. “We have gone from being unable to vote legally to a highly courted voting bloc – all in little more than a century. Despite this and despite the way so many have embraced messages about racial justice this year, Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life.”

In the op-ed, Megan addressed her own personal struggles with being respected, including her July altercation with rapper Tory Lanez. Nearly a

Walmart is revamping its Black Friday sale by offering shoppers three chances to get the “best prices of the season.”

Megan Thee Stallion believes Black women are “constantly disrespected” in life.

The ‘WAP’ hitmaker has penned an op-ed piece for the New York Times titled ‘Why I Speak Up for Black Women’ ahead of the upcoming US presidential election, where she says Black women are “disregarded in so many areas of life”, despite making up one of the most “highly courted voting blocs” in America.

She wrote: “In the weeks leading up to the election, Black women are expected once again to deliver victory for Democratic candidates. We have gone from being unable to vote legally to a highly courted voting bloc – all in little more than a century.

“Despite this and despite the way so many have embraced messages about racial justice this year. Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life.”

Megan Thee Stallion op-ed calls for protecting Black women

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An op-ed by Megan Thee Stallion on the need to protect Black women was published Tuesday as rapper Tory Lanez had his first court hearing on felony charges alleging he shot her.

“I was recently the victim of an act of violence by a man,” she wrote in the New York Times, without naming Lanez. The op-ed was published shortly before a judge released him on bail and ordered him to stay away from her.

“After a party, I was shot twice as I walked away from him,” she wrote about the attacker. “We were not in a relationship. Truthfully, I was shocked that I ended up in that place.”


In the piece titled, “Why I Speak Up For Black Women,” the hip-hop star writes that “Black women are still constantly disrespected and disregarded in so many areas of life.”

8 Black women create fund to raise $1 billion by 2030 to invest in African American girls

Black women and girls are often left out or erased from the social justice movement. A large part of that is because funds for the organizations that center them and their experiences are scarce.

A recent study showed that philanthropic giving from foundations averaged about $5.48 for each woman or girl of color in the United States. This minuscule portion accounts for just 0.5% of the $66.9 billion given by foundations, according to Giving USA 2018.

For Black women and girls, the amount is even smaller because this data encompasses all women and girls of color, including Asian Americans, Latinas and Indigenous people.

The Black Girl Freedom Fund, created by a notable group of leaders and activists, hopes to change that, and specifically invest in Black girls and women.

The goal of the fund is to invest $1 billion in Black girls and women by 2030. More than

Megan Thee Stallion Pens New York Times Op-Ed, Says ‘’Protect Black Women’ Should Not Be Controversial’

My dad emailed me about a week ago, with a barrage of questions: “Did you watch Saturday Night Live? Did you see the musical artist? What did you think of her performance?”

He was referring to Megan Thee Stallion, an artist he’d previously been unfamiliar with and wasn’t entirely sure he understood—specifically, how to reconcile her unapologetically sex-positive image (by her own design) with the mid-song declaration she made in defense of Black women while performing her hit, “Savage” on SNL. For my pops—and no doubt many others well-accustomed to the traditional “good girl/bad girl” binary, Meg’s identity as both righteous and ratchet might prove challenging, at first glance.

Black Women Battling Breast Cancer Deserve More Wig Options, According to Coils to Locs Founder Dianne Austin

When Dianne Austin decided to ditch her relaxer and transition back to her natural hair in 2011, she had no idea that four years later she would be hit with the heartbreaking news of a breast cancer diagnosis.

“My first thoughts were how ironic it was that I went down this path of embracing my natural hair just to lose every strand of it,” she shares with InStyle. “It was a huge decision for me to stop relaxing my hair and to begin to embrace my natural texture after years of relaxing.”

As she began to say goodbye to her own hair, Austin, like many in cancer treatment, was in search of a wig. And while they’re sometimes covered, depending on the healthcare insurance provider, she wasn’t able to find any that even came close to matching her natural coily texture.

That’s why in 2019, she created Coils to
