Chicago rapper Chance The Rapper claims that Black men are the main “oppressors” of the Black community. The rapper posted his controversial political position on Twitter yesterday.
According to a quote that Chance re-tweeted, “Back men may be victimized by racism, but sexism allows them to act as exploiters and oppressors of women.”
Chance’s position, held by many feminists, has been criticized as “disingenuous” by many in the Black community. Many believe that this position distracts people from discussing the very real issues of racial injustice.
And most of the people circulating Chance’s arguments since the Black Lives Matter Movement took off – have been White supremacists.
Here’s what he re-posted:
