Megan Thee Stallion for the NYT: Why I Speak Up for Black Women


In a thought-provoking opinion piece on the NYT Megan Thee Stallion reflects on why she will always speak up for Black women. Some excerpts are down below.

On SNL Criticism: "I’m not afraid of criticism. We live in a country where we have the freedom to criticize elected officials. And it’s ridiculous that some people think the simple phrase “Protect Black women” is controversial. We deserve to be protected as human beings. And we are entitled to our anger about a laundry list of mistreatment and neglect that we suffer."

On dressing for herself: "I choose what I wear, not because I am trying to appeal to men, but because I am showing pride in my appearance, and a positive body image is central to who I am as a woman and a performer. I value compliments from women far more than from men."

On voting this election: "We know that after the last ballot is cast and the vote is tallied, we are likely to go back to fighting for ourselves. Because at least for now, that’s all we have."
