C. Delores Tucker and The Fight Against Misogynoiristic (C)Rap Music
When the late C. Delores Tucker went against violent misogynoir in rap music, she did not go on about “da white man this, da white man that” rants she held these anti-woman misogynoiristic rappers accountable for their own behavior and actions. We’ve all heard the excuses from Blackistan that it was “da white record execs who made these po’ negro males degrade and demean their own women”, however Mrs. Tucker (like many of us now) wasn’t buying it. When she called out these BW-hating muthaphuckas they called responded with more violent misogynoir (2pac and lil’ kim included, so disappointed in Kim) they called her every thing but a child of God. [Side Note: From what I heard the ONLY person who stood with her was a black man named, Rev. Calvin Butts (and I believe there were a few others) while the rest of Blackistan sat back as usual quiet while she was attacked.] Here some information about the misogynoiristic attackes she faced from her Wikipedia bio:
Tucker dedicated much of the last few years of her life to condemning sexually explicit lyrics in rap and hip-hop tracks, citing a concern that the lyrics were misogynistic and threatened the moral foundation of the African American community.
Called “narrow-minded” by some rappers who often mentioned her in their lyrics, Tucker picketed stores that sold rap music and bought stock in Sony, Time Warner, and other companies in order to protest hip-hop at their shareholders’ meetings. She also fought against the NAACP’s decision to nominate late rapper Tupac Shakur for one of its Image Awards and filed a $10 million lawsuit against his estate for comments that the rapper made in his song “How Do U Want It?” on the album All Eyez on Me, in which Shakur rapped “C. Delores Tucker you’s a motherfucker / Instead of trying to help a nigga you destroy a brother”. In her lawsuit, Tucker claimed that comments in this song, and on the track “Wonda Why They Call U Bitch” from the same album, inflicted emotional distress, were slanderous and invaded her privacy. This case was eventually dismissed.
Other rappers have taken similar stances. In his song “Church for Thugs”, The Game raps “I’ve got more hatred in my soul than Pac had for De'ores Tucker.” Jay-Z chimes in as well, with the lines “I don’t care if you’re C. Dolores Tucker or you’re Bill O'Reilly, you only riling me up,” from The Black Album’s “Threat.” Lil’ Kim also referenced her in a leftover track, entitled “Rockin’ It”, from her second studio album. Kim raps “C. Delores T., Screw her, I never knew her”, after Tucker dubbed her music as “gangsta porno rap” and “filth”. Much of KRS-One and Channel Live’s “Free Mumia” is a direct criticism of what the MCs see as Tucker’s misplaced energy. Lil Wayne also referenced her in his leftover song “Million Dollar Baby” rapping “Can’t be banned I’m sorry Miss Delores.” Rapper Eminem also mentioned Tucker in the D-12 song “Rap Game”, in which he rapped the line “Tell that C. Delores Tucker slut to suck a dick.”
Mrs. Tucker knew that this misogynoiristic crap called
hip shit hop would lead the black “community” further down in looking-ass niggerdom. BTW, Black Women funded and supported (and still do) this particular oppression.
[Side Note: And if you all can stomach it, go look at the comments below under these videos (below) here and here Blackistan is still defending this music and cursing her and the woman is dead, how low. The Black Men in the comments are still making excuses and and found a way to blame it ALL ON black women.]
Now years later, you got some niggas talkin about “Mrs Tucker was right.”
It’s like @for-marginalized-bw-only once said that black people act like grown rank negro males have NO control over their own behavior and actions, its always “da white man made me do it” mantra everytime there is disrespect or defamation to the Black Woman’s body, character or image.
THERE HAS GOT TO BE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY ON THESE NEGRO MALES PART, AND BLACK WOMEN LIKE ME WILL KEEP DOING JUST THAT, FIRST BY BOYCOTTING THE VAST MAJORITY OF RAPPERS, MALE (AND FEMALE).
R.I.P. Mrs. Dr. C. Delores Tucker, We Will Make Sure That Your Fight Will Not Be In Vain
The Struggle Is Intersectional
