Solange Claps Back at White Music Writers Who Don't Know Anything About the Culture

Solange proved herself, once again, to be a fierce defender of Blackness and Black women, in particular, with a series of tweets aimed at clueless music writers, including New York Times critic Jon Caramanica.

Back in 2013, Solange scolded music writers who write on Black music but know little about it.

Caramanica responded in a podcast with typical White man condescension. “The only reason that Solange’s success this past year has even been a thing is only because of these same people that she’s lambasting, like there would be no Solange record if the dude from Grizzly Bear didn’t put it out. There would be no Solange interests if all of a sudden people that have not historically been interested in r&b hadn’t decided to pay attention to Miguel and The Weeknd and Drake. So you know, first of all, let’s talk about biting the hand that feeds you. If I was Solange, I would be a little bit worried about that.”

Solange decided to address the comments better late than never in a take down of racism in music criticism.

And after that, Solange ended it all with a casual hair flip.

Gotta love it.
