Erykah Badu looks seriously gorgeous on the latest issue of The Fader.
The Afrocentric songstress has repeatedly been landing in hot water as of late as a result of her statements about young girls, modesty, and the sexual intentions of grown men.
In an interview with The Fader, Badu reinforces her confusing stance and also drops another series of troubling statements — this time about poverty and “black on black” crime.
“We can organize like a motherfucker when police beat us up,” she said. “But can we organize to stop Black-on-Black crime, or poor-on-poor crime? Because, you know, poor is the new Black. You don’t have to be Black now.”
Much like her statements about young girls and the length of their skirts, her assessment plays on old myths and ignores the reality of the oppressed and the oppressor.
