Recently there have been a string of celebrities calling out people and institutions for racism. Some seem surprised it's happening to them, thinking their celebrity is a shield. While others are seriously emotionally affected.
The rapper wasn't holding back.
Where are our friends and fans of black music and black people when the partying stops and the subject turns to the reality of being black?

All hail Queen Bey! The 33-year-old performer attended the launch of her husband Jay-Z's new high-definition music streaming
Those nails, though: Of course he does Lady Gaga like a queen: A Canadian guy can do Beyonce better than Beyonce! Mina Gerges
Remember Taylor Hatala, the 11-year-old whose dance routine to "Anaconda" made us forget Nicki Minaj's raunchy video? Well
Kim Kardashian isn't the only celeb who likes to flaunt what her mama gave her. On Sunday, Nicki Minaj took to Instagram
It says a lot about 11-year-old Taylor Hatala that she can make us forget Nicki Minaj's raunchy "Anaconda" video, if only
When Nicki Minaj wears an LBD, it's never ever boring. Proof: the sexy tuxedo-inspired Saint Laurent mini-dress she sported
Nicki Minaj can be totally polarizing so it's no wonder the "Anaconda" singer appears on not one, but two covers of Dazed
Hisssss! We're not booing Nicki Minaj's MTV VMA 2014 outfit. That's actually us trying to pathetically pretend we're her
