Last week, a young man yelled a racist slur at Kanye West's wife, calling her a "n*gger lover." As disrespectful as this incident was, it serves as a reality check for Kanye and his ilk. The man who made the N-word rhyme with "Gold Digger" for a hit song now laments having to "raise my daughter around ignorance and flat-out blatant racism." Cry me a river, Kanye! It is high time hip-hop honchos had their consciousness awakened. Jay-Z, Yeezy and many more have propagated this mess. The bitch they rap about -- her name is Karma.

There's nothing wrong with being sexual, discovering your sexuality or embracing sexuality. There is, however, something troubling about making it the essence of who you are -- because women are much more than sex. But unfortunately, young girls and women are not taught that. Instead, we're told over and over again that the essence of our worth and power is determined by our looks and sexual expression.
