Last week, rapper Too Short, born Todd Anthony Shaw, offered some disgusting “fatherly advice” to his viewers at XXL Magazine’s online home. Shaw explicitly advocated the sexual assault of preteen and teenage girls in a video. The question is not why the man would say such horrific things. (Vile people regularly say and do vile things.), but why did the magazine provide him a platform? The minds and bodies of black girls are continually under attack. Those in charge at XXL, particularly Vanessa Satten the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, value the security of young black women so little that they chose to trade it for pageviews. Let them know that we will not sit and watch while they wage war.
