Rachel Seaton. Cole, Johnnetta, and Guy-Sheftall, Beverly. No Respect: Gender Politics and Hip Hop. Pg. 99-105.


  • Rap music gives young blacks their problematic views on gender roles, thus disrespecting women and giving men a misogynist view (100).


  • Classism and sexism are the two burdens that black women face (100).
  • Rap music celebrates violence against women and promotes women as sexual targets (101).
  • Music videos strip women of any humanizing subjective identity and thus portray them as merely sexual objects and property (102).
  • The depiction of black women in rap videos can be traced back to early American history when they were enslaved and used merely to reproduce and as sexual objects (103).


  • Rap music needs to eliminate the misogynist messages (103).


  • The community needs to get involved and show that they are not in favor of the demeaning messages portrayed through rap music in order to alter the impressions given to the youth that listen to the music (104).
