    “IM NOT FOR FEEDING INTO RACIAL STEREOTYPES IN FRONT OF WHITE AUDIENCES”

    @Pink Friday H**

    Yeah, I can’t get down with this. I know, she’s only “acting,” but black women battle the stereotypes she’s portraying in this sketch too often for them to be laughed off as fodder for white consumption.

  15. 123456 January 30, 2011

    But black people can be racist and say beat that WHITE b****…they have to mention white? right?
    And Trina can release song called WHITE GIRLS and now lets a white rapper do a song called BLACK GIRLs and it would eb racists so shut up

    And you guys cry about a stereotype that was made of fun as a joke

  16. 2bad2bme January 30, 2011

    ITS JUST A SKIT ON A COMEDY SHOW YALL ACTING LIKE THE GIRL WAS IN A SERIOUS MOVIE!

  17. Ayo January 30, 2011

    Im I the only one who doesn’t think this is good or funny

  18. Mari January 30, 2011

    @123456

    You’re ignorance is showing. If you don’t know what Pink Friday H** and I are talking about, just ask.

    Black people cannot be racist against whites in America. They can be prejudiced, but not racist. racism isn’t just privilege. It’s a combination of privilege and power. When I say power, I mean political and economic power to systematically oppress and disenfranchise members of non-white racial groups. Collectively, blacks do not have the power to systematically deny whites access to education, jobs, capital, etc., because the majority of political and economic institutions (banks and such) are controlled by whites.

    Blacks calling whites b****** or whatever isn’t right, but for the reasons I just outlined, it isn’t “racist.”

    Black women, in particular, struggle for visibility in pop-culture. They’re denied movie roles, modeling jobs, etc., because of their skin color, and all too often, the only time they are allowed to participate in the media is to play neck weaving, big booty, argumentative harpees like Nicki was playing in this sketch. So, if people have a problem with it, it’s not because they’re hating. It’s because, unlike you, they can see this trope for what it is.

  19. Mari January 30, 2011

    *racism is a combination of PREJUDICE and power

  20. GangsterA January 30, 2011

    lmao lmao lmao i love it nicki is such a bad ass i knew they were going to make fun of her booty lol #get’em nicki

  21. X_POSED99 January 30, 2011

    Wasnt that funny… she was just acting her own ghetto project self. Seen her old “before her booty days” youtube vids? She speaks just like that.

  22. elleuk January 30, 2011

    @ ayo, nope i didn’t find it funny as well. yeah yeah black women have huge asses and attitude, can they not come up with a more orginal joke. that ones been played out as much as fart jokes.

  23. anon January 30, 2011

    Once again race is brought into it, which makes whoever bought it up make black people look bad, just leave it, everyone is equal and only the people who keep moaning look sad and pathetic!!

  24. Justathought January 30, 2011

    That skit was not funny…AT ALL

  25. Leena January 30, 2011

    For the person who said nicki used talk like this no she did not since when does a upstate girl from ny sound like country ghetto black woman she definitely never sounded like this but anyway good job nicki it was a cute skit

  26. Mack January 30, 2011

    love this skit……

  27. xedos January 30, 2011

    They’re playing the blaxplotation movie era. how do you expect them to act. the blaxplotation era was real.

  28. let it go… January 30, 2011

    I’m confused how in the world is that skit racist when it mimics everything that made Pam Grier famous??…Foxy Brown..Cleopatra Jones..stop reaching for ignorance..it makes you look dumb….

  29. LEGENNDTINA4LIFE January 30, 2011

    she should stop rapping and making those sounds she calls singing and start acting.

  30. AREALBARB January 30, 2011

    @FANTASYRIDE

    HAHHAHAHAHA I CAN’T TAKE A FAN OF FLOP SERIOUSLY… TELL THAT B**** CIARA TO GET HALF OF GOLD BEFORE YOU COME FOR NICKI…
    FIRST SNL DON’T KNOW A LIL KIM… PERIOD…
    NICKI MINAJ DOING MORE IN HER BEGINNING OF HER CAREER THAN LIL KIM DID IN HERS… NICKI MINAJ IS BIGGER THAN HER… FACE IT… LIL KIM NEVER DID THIS MUCH… IM NOT HERE FOR CORNY ASS TWO SECOND LINES OR LITTLE CAMEOS… THAT B**** CAN KICK ROCKS WITH THAT S***…. THE BIGGEST ROLE SHE HAD WAS IN GANG OF ROSES… A DIRECT TO DVD FILM…. HAHAHHAHAHA… DONT MAKE ME LAUGH… NICKI SHITS ON LIL KIM…

  31. LEGENNDTINA4LIFE January 30, 2011

    @AREALBARB
    lil kim performed at the grammys and won a grammy. that shits on anything nicki has done and will do

  32. Mari January 30, 2011

    I’m confused how in the world is that skit racist when it mimics everything that made Pam Grier famous??…Foxy Brown..Cleopatra Jones..stop reaching for ignorance..it makes you look dumb….
    _____________________________________________________

    @Let it go . . .

    Yes you are confused. Last time I checked Grier’s films Coffee and Foxy Brown were about nurses taking down drug rings and Cleopatra Jones was about a government agent. None of those films had anything to do with some sketch built around the objectification of a black woman’s ass and attitude. Please come harder.

  33. let it go… January 30, 2011

    @mari any excuse to make you feel intelligent..I guess glorifying boobs instead of ass makes you classier..because that is definitely what she was known for in those movies..but I don’t argue on blogs so you just keep your opinions..as will I

  34. Miles January 30, 2011

    It was funny people. She did a good job for SNL. Get a sense of humor. It was meant to be goofy and silly. And why in the hell are we talking about Lil Kim? This s*** has nothing to do with Kim. Sorry about that. Congrats Nicki. You stole the show.

  35. Diane January 30, 2011

    All of you who are accusing Nicki of stereotyping are the first to run to see a Tyler Perry movie, so STFU!!!!!!!! Nicki did not speak unintelligently, she used a sassy-girl accent and it worked! However, Tyler Perry’s Meet the Browns is a story of an uneducated grown man who uses grammar incorrectly and that show keeps getting picked up for another season. So whose watching that s***!

    Nicki did very well. I wasn’t offended at all. I want her to do the remake of Sparkle or Cleopatra Jones.

  36. MISHKA January 30, 2011

    SHE NAILED THAT SH*T!

    Somewhere in NY, Spike Lee is polishing a scenario just for you, girl.

  37. likeCAESAR January 30, 2011

    I understand what people are saying about “black women” but it was a spoof of BLACKSPLOTATION…which we already know depicts blacks in a stereotypical fashion. This is something we should all laugh about and move on. Its not a display of secret racism or some plot by SNL to downgrade the entire black community. It was simply a spoof…meant to be comical and push buttons…just like all the other spoofs. They do skits about mentally challenged people all the time…I’m sure if they had the cognitive abilities to actually object they would…..lol…that was a joke..you know like when you laugh…

  38. blah January 30, 2011

    F*** this gimmick… ugh

  39. NICK January 30, 2011

    BAM BABY!! Nicki is on point, LOVED IT!

  40. read it and weep 33 January 30, 2011

    honestly im not a fan on nikki minaj the artist but i do like her personality. when i first watched this i cringed a little becuz although it was a little funny it is playing into stereotypes of black women for a white audience which kind of made me uncomfortable and im a black man. it was all for comedy yes i get that and i did laugh at some parts, but i dotn like to see black women portrayed like this because there are just as many who dont act like this and would find it offensive.

    just my two cents

  41. BAA January 31, 2011

    [email protected] KIM HATERS Um u guys dont know s*** about the music industry. Nicki may one day s*** on Lil Kim but for now Kim still shits on her. When Nicki ass get 2 more platinum albums then talk, when she starts inspiring females in the game, and inspire clones then talk and , when shes here for more than a decade making hits then talk and when other artist start calling her a rap legend then talk and i repeat Queen Bee still shits on Nicki

  42. I Go U Go January 31, 2011

    Why is Kim even mentioned in this thread about NICKI MINAJ on SNL. Kim needs to work on getting her act together so she can be seen on Tv at all.

    The skits were funny. Blacks are always calling exploitation but when u listen to half the rap lyrics what do you call that, most movies, what is that called? Go to a black comedy show and what do you see. Comedy is based on stereotypes and that’s just the way it is.

  43. G January 31, 2011

    it was cute!!!!

  44. Keesha January 31, 2011

    I have a question, why does her voice sound nasaly and annoying in interviews, but here, it doesn’t sound like that? Does she turn it on or something?

  45. swaggedupstud January 31, 2011

    nicki did the damn thing she need acting roles asap she is good at it. team nicki minaj!!

  46. Easy Breezy Beautiful CoverGirl January 31, 2011

    Why is Lil Kim being mentioned? Firstly this is a Nicki Minaj thread. Not a Nicki vs Lil Kim thread. Nobody is really checking for Kim anyways…And quit with that tired “she’s been in the industry for 100 years” B.S. She was sitting for her ass 95 out of the 100 years. She hasn’t had a hit since she got out of jail. Let it go already…Damn.

  47. VLB January 31, 2011

    HALARITY!!!! Nicki can actully act though lol

  48. AREALBARB January 31, 2011

    @LEGENNDTINA4LIFE THE GRAMMYS… HOW IS THAT SO… SHE WASN’T THE MAIN ATTRACTION… IT WAS XTINA AND PINK… THEY WERE THE REASON THAT SONG GOT TO NUMBER 1 AND GOT TO THE GRAMMYS… (LIL KIM WASN’T EVEN A HIGHLIGHT OF THAT PERFORMANCE) IT TOOK HARDCORE MORE THAN 2 MONTHS TO GO GOLD… 7 MONTHS TO GO PLATINUM… AND MORE THAN 5 YEARS TO GO DOUBLE PLATINUM… AND IT DIDN’T EVEN SELL 2 MILLION… IT ONLY SHIPPED… PINK FRIDAY WENT PLATINUM LESS THAN 2 MONTHS… NICKI WAS ON SNL BECAUSE OF HER… NOT BECAUSE SHE WAS A PART OF SOMEONE ELSE’S SONG… YOU HONESTLY THINK LIL KIM WOULD HAVE BEEN ON THE GRAMMYS BY HERSELF… THE GRAMMYS DON’T KNOW LIL KIM… IF THEY DID SHE WOULD HAVE WON AN AWARD BY HERSELF OR AT LEAST PERFORM BY HERSELF…NICKI SOLO SNL PERFORMANCE>>>>>>>>>ANY LIL KIM THING

  49. B4REAL02 January 31, 2011

    LMAO……YOU GUYS ARE SO SILLY……OK I’M NO NICKI STAN BUT PLEASE TELL ME WHERE ARE THESE TONS OF MOVIES THAT LIL KIM’S IN?? IF ANY THEY WERE ALL LOW BUDGET LOL……. UMMM AND EVERYTHING ON LIL KIM’S BODY IS FAKE……#IMJUSTSAYING
