Don’t Come To America And Try To Convince Me That You’re Gangsta Boo”: Rah Digga  On Iggy Azaela
Iggy Azalea, it’s like.,  I can’t really get into her because it’s just not real to me. And not for nothing because people have accents in real life as opposed to when they work. But let me say this to you. There is a white girl from Australia that spits in an Australian accent and her name is Chelsea Jane. That I can get into. Teach me Australian Hip Hop culture. Don’t come to America and try to convince me that you’re Gangsta Boo. She’s a beautiful girl. Capitalize off of the supermodeling thing! But we’re not going to believe you if you’re trying to convince us that you’re out here trap shooting…
This is what I have an issue with because my issue is never with any of the artists and what they bring to the table. My issue is with the higher powers. I don’t consider her Hip Hop. I listen to her album. Everything that I hear on there is everything but that. And I feel like Hip Hop is Hip Hop. The same way they took R&B and okay, for the ones that are considered ‘real’ R&B, we’re going to call them Neo-Soul, so now we can call Ariana Grande R&B. Hip Hop is representative of this: to inform and empower inner city youth. I’m fine with anybody’s race, creed or color participating, but don’t ever forget what it was created for in the first place.”
She also stood with Nicki Minaj in her statements at the BET Awards earlier this year about the importance of women rappers writing their own rhymes.
“There are too many passes being given. Everybody was mad at Nicki for making that comment at BET. This is what I wanna say: When did it become wrong to call out people that don’t write their own rhymes? When did that become a crime in Hip Hop? This is Hip Hop at the end of the day.”
What do you guys think?Do you agree with Rah statement

Jackee was the first Black woman to win an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Sadly, since that day in 1987 no other black woman has been honored with that award.

Love.

Always thought she was baddd

and Sandra Clark (Jackee) leaves Blanche Devereaux in the dust, honey.

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill into law that makes California the first in the nation to have a clear definition of when people agree to sex. The law goes further than the common “no means no” standard, which has been blamed for bringing ambiguity into investigations of sexual assault cases.
The new law seeks both to improve how universities handle rape and sexual assault accusations and to clarify the standards, requiring an “affirmative consent” and stating that consent can’t be given if someone is asleep or incapacitated by drugs or alcohol.
"Lack of protest or resistance does not mean consent," the law states, "nor does silence mean consent. Affirmative consent must be ongoing throughout a sexual activity and can be revoked at any time."
The state Senate unanimously approved the “yes means yes” bill Thursday sponsored by, Sen. Kevin de Leon (D-Los Angeles). “With one in five women on college campuses experiencing sexual assault, it is high time the conversation regarding sexual assault be shifted to one of prevention, justice, and healing,” Sen. de Leon said, as the Associated Press reported.  
Critics of the legislation have argued that it presumes guilt on the accused and that the State is setting themselves up for legal troubles as it shouldn’t be able to regulate consent between two sexual adults. But supporters, including Sofie Karasek, an activist who sought changes in how the University of California-Berkeley handles such cases, say that it’ll be helpful to define consent and set standards across campuses. “It does change the cultural perception of what rape is,” Karasek told the Mecury-News. “There’s this pervasive idea that if it’s not super violent then it doesn’t really count.”
In addition to the legislation defining consent, the bill requires training for faculty reviewing complaints so that victims are not asked inappropriate questions when filing complaints. The bill also requires access to counseling, health care services and other resources.
No matter how many yeses a woman gives, just one “no” should still be more than enough to stop an unwanted sexual advance, do you think this new bill will help change rape culture on college campuses?
