If Women Ran Hip Hop
Aya de Leon
United StatesGALLERYCONVERSATION
but there would be free earplugs available anyway
and venues would have skylights and phat patios
and shows would run all day not just late at night
cuz If women ran hip hop we would have nothing to be ashamed of
and there would be an African marketplace
with big shrines to Oya
Yoruba deity of the female warrior and entrepreneur
and women would sell and barter and prosper
If women ran hip hop
there would never be shootings
cuz there would be onsite conflict mediators
to help you work through all that negativity and hostility
and there would also be free condoms and dental dams
in pretty baskets throughout the place
as well as counselors to help you make the decision:
do I really want to have sex with him or her?
and there would be safe, reliable, low-cost 24-hour transportation home
and every venue would have on-site quality child care
where kids could sleep while grown folks danced
