Megan Thee Stallion has made major moves since entering the rap game and has now graduated into the philanthropist and activist role. Our favorite Houston born hot girl cannot be stopped, as she teamed up with the New York Times to amplify her voice in taking a stand for black women. During such a pivotal moment in her life, Megan writes a powerful New York Times opinion piece where she addresses the current voting climate and her recent domestic violence situation in which she was shot twice in the foot.
Right out the gate, it is clear that Thee Stallion did not come to play as she states:
“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 block — 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’s statement comes only a week after her revered SNL performance where she made a brilliantly savage decision to incorporate Malcolm X’s 1962 “Who Taught You To Hate Yourself “ speech. It is evident that Megan has transitioned and wants to use her bars and body as a vessel to liberate black women.
Alongside her masterfully written New York Times piece was an inspiring visual. This encouraging and bold statement showcases the pain, hypocrisy, and harsh double standards that women face today. Megan shows her love for all women by displaying women of all shapes and sizes and giving a clear shout out to the transgender community.
After fully recovering from her public domestic issue, Megan has started to drive a different kind of boat and has steered into a lane where her voice will stand as a vessel that helps women to break the chains of society’s unrealistic expectations.
