There is no doubt that Megan Thee Stallion has had another amazing record year when it comes to her career. Unfortunately, she fell victim to a shooting event that caused some changes in her life.
In a new opinion piece for the New York Times, Megan talks about how to talk about protecting black women on her platform. In the play she said, “I was recently the victim of violence by a man. After a party, I was shot twice walking away from him. We weren’t in a relationship. In all honesty, I was shocked that I ended up in this place. “
She continued, “My initial silence about what happened was out of fear for me and my friends. Even as a victim, I encountered skepticism and judgment. The way people have publicly asked and discussed whether I played a role in my own violent attack shows that my fears about discussing what happened were unfortunately justified. “
Megan continued talking about violence against women and doesn’t always have to be associated with a romantic relationship.
“Instead, it happens because too many men treat all women as objects, which helps them justify abuse against us when we choose to exercise our own free will,” Megan said.
Megan also spoke about her viral performance on Saturday Night Live, where she advocated protecting black women, and also called Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron after no justice was served on the Breonna Taylor case.
She said, “I am not afraid of criticism. We live in a country where we have the freedom to criticize elected officials. And it’s ridiculous that some people think the simple phrase “protect black women” is controversial. We deserve to be protected as humans. And we have a right to our anger over a list of abuse and neglect we suffer. “
Megan continues to notice many prominent black women throughout history who have made many changes to our story.
