Yesterday, I was praising Katie Barnes for her article revealing the misogyny in Straight Outta Compton. Today, I’m praising another Barnes (no relation, I presume). Sista Dee for speaking out about the violence she experienced at the hands of Dr. Dre.
Black women will not stand for our experience to be surgically removed from the story and for the violence against us to be glorified, trivialized or glossed over.
