T.I. Doesn’t Think Women Are Ready To Be President Taneisha Nicole October 13, 2015 In this weeks episode of ‘I’m a Celebrity Who Should Have Said Nothing’ we present to you T.I. ladies and gentlemen. As if Raven-Symone‘s nonsense on ‘black ghetto’ names wasn’t bad enough for a black woman who doesn’t exactly have the name ‘Poppy-Charlotte’, T.I. gives his thoughts on Hilary Clinton‘s run for presidency. The Atlanta born rapper sat down for an interview with DJ Whoo Kid The Whoolywood Shuffle radio show on Monday, and saw it fit to discuss his ‘non-sexist’ views on women not having what it takes to be President of the United States. According to Tip, women are emotional beings and are unable to make important decisions without their estrogen levels interfering. Of course they were not his exact words, but they may as well have been; “Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman. Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. “And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. You will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could get a woman.” Of course in true foot-in-mouth fashion, the rapper took to Twitter to apologise for his remarks, which sounded more like a child reluctantly doing so after being ordered to by their Mother. My comments about women running for president were unequivocally insensitive and wrong. I sincerely apologize to everyone I offended. — T.I. (@Tip) October 13, 2015 Sure to be an opinion held by many, who are more than likely to be majority male, it shouldn’t be too shocking as we all know it is still an on-going fight for women to be seen as men’s equal. Just this week actress Jennifer Lawrence expressed her anger with the pay gap in Hollywood between female actresses and their male counterparts. Although here in the U.K. we were able to achieve exactly what is it T.I. explains the “world” isn’t quite ready for, former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was elected to Downing Street in 1979. It is more than likely that there are doubts that a female politician will have the opportunity to run Great Britain again, or at least anytime soon. Hey, although a very separate issue the struggle for real race equality is still a huge on-going issue in the U.S. and all over the world for black people, and will continue to be long after Barack Obama has completed his term in office. The ignorance won’t die out just because such great achievements are made….ignorance is ever so prevalent. Maybe the new film Suffragette is coming out at a perfect time. Your Thoughts?
