🗣 Black women’s voices matter, and R Kelly needs to be held accountable. Period. The difficult part of this conversation is, where do we draw the line? As a consumer, i have no problem WANTING TO not support anyone living foul off the mic or glorifying foulness on the mic. Internally though, i struggle.. Because i’m addicted to some of the same music i know is bad for us. And i want to be better 😤. And i know that none of us is without sin 😤, but i think it’s time for a massive shift in how we think about what we consume as well as the artists + messages we support.
