SORT BY Relevancy
Much controvesy is swirling around the newly "UNAUTHORIZED" release of the Erykah Badu - Killing Me Softly video. Males and females alike respond with similiar expressions of dislike and disappointment.
IS IT ART?
Few can argue the point that the human body is all but a work of art. But, true as it may be, there are appropriate, and inappropriate means of expressing it
Did Miz Badu go to far with this piece? Was there a 'breach of trust' in the relaese of the video? Or merely a publicity tactic?

This week on Black Women in Conversation, the show that is always a positive call to action, we're discussing the complex controversy surrounding the Erykah Badu/Flaming Lips video. We're will be in conversation about the backlash she received from the Black community, whether or not Black women bear the sole burden for the ways in which we’re presented in the media, and use this opportunity to continue building authentic counter-narratives to prevailing negative stereotypes that present obstacles to liberation, freedom and regard for Black women and girls.
We will be discussing the real factors of race, sex, power, access and privilege throughout this controversy, as well as issues of exploitation. Where does consent begin and end?
If you haven’t seen the video, you should know that it’s not for younger or sensitive viewers.
A blogger online states: "The video itself and all of the resulting aftermath are all so viscerally exploitative that I physically ache for her [Erykah Badu]. And whether or not you are a fan of her music, if you call yourself a person of feminist, anti-sexist, anti-racist, anti-patriarchal identification, then you need to be on her side with this...This is not about nudity."
A carry over topic from the Black Teen Empowerment Radio segment "Erykah Badu: From Bag Lady To Video Skank".
The responses from have been insightful, insane and intolerant of any kind of criticism of their Neo-Soul idol. I will what "Group Think" actually is lest you be miseducated by Ms. Badu's interpretation.
Who is Erykah Badu and lets pass judgement on her "body" of so-called art as well as examine her inspiration and motivation.
