Bottom Bitch Feminism

 

An interesting alternative view to the more mainstream sentiment of Beyonce as the embodiment of Black feminism.

The problem with Beyhive Bottom Bitch Feminism

The coontocracy of assimilationist corporate negroes is in full effect, riding for patriarchal capitalist agendas and having us believe that somehow Beyonce’s success is a step toward some dystopic vision of progress for Black women. There may be empowerment for some folks but by and large it is a false hope steeped in capitalism and individualism, supporting the escapist desires of rampant pornographic consumerism.

I would not go as far as calling her music pornographic consumerism, but the article does raise some good points on the structurally violent sampling of feminism through pop/hip hop culture and its perceived empowerment of women.
