Jay-Z declares that there’s more sexism than racism in America, ignites identity politics range war

Rapper Jay-Z ignited a battle to find the biggest victim group in America when he declared sexism is a bigger issue than racism last week.

“At this very moment America is way more sexist than they are racist,” the rapper said to a young female fan at his Cleveland show on Nov. 19. “But you young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States.”

The inspirational message ignited a firestorm of controversy between those who champion gender and those who advocate race as the determining factors in victimhood.

“I think what Jay-Z is trying to articulate is his consciousness and [his] more current awareness of the prevalence of sexism,” Education and Applied Intersectionality at the ‎Organization for Human Rights and Democracy co-founder Yolande Tomlinson told the Atlanta Black Star. “Because he has daughters and I’m sure he sees the way his wife [Beyoncé] has suffered.”

Many derided Jay-Z’s sentiment.


Others agreed with the rapper.
