i am kind of on the fence with this one. i am really not impressed buy this. i understand the point they are trying to make if they are trying to make a point that has to do with women and rap music. As a woman i don't think that women are getting such a good rap. I say that because back then when they had us black folk up there for auction we didn't have any choices. now women get all dressed up and go out there to get those jobs. and they get paid nice money too. do i like to see a half naked chick in every video nope, but they would not be there if there was no demand for it. just like there are hot guys with no shirt on. we have choices now, and the choices we make are the ones we have to live with.

I'm not to sure if you sence the Bid Em Up video which is at the bottom of the link... this skit has to do with slavery and how our black women and me where brought over and sold. they were sized up and characterized as though we were a bunch of Cattle. my purpose was to show how it use to be and where we are how today our young children know the struggles but don't feel the struggles we as a people can do better, and when I saw that skit I felt as though I was unappriciative about my past history I hope you veiw the right one...
