Non-Black: Criminality, Misogyny, and Violence

This is a short list of songs which feature non-hip hop, non-black artists who we constantly forgive for their sexist, violent, classist, problematic natures. Because they're white and this sort of behavior doesn't fit our stereotypes of who white people who make rock and roll are. Please keep in mind that I listen to a lot of these songs, despite the fact that I consider myself conscious of feminism and intersectional oppression.

Trigger Warning: Slurs, gay bashing, violence, misogyny, racism, ableism, classism eminent.

Feel free to add more with the lyrics/video when you come across something. Acknowledging these exceptions to the rule will shine some light on our own perceptions of the stereotypes and expectations of these and other artists.

  2. Yeah. This is an academic blog and I dont accept liveral white men making comments about how "not all men" do this. I dont accept appologetic liberals. They are the bane of my existence. If you would like to do some research into what misogyny actually is and then rephrase your comment into something useful (i.e. silence on an issue you know little about in the first place) that would be much appreciated.
