Nicki Minaj is comforted by the nice things white people say about her compared to "the blacks". The 36-year-old Barbie rapper took to social media to slam Black people for the mean things they say about her compared to the nicer white media coverage.
In a since-deleted tweet on Tuesday, Nicki wrote: "What the white [people] post. >>>>>> The blacks only post the few seconds where I raise my voice to push their narrative..."
The tweet came after Nicki was dragged online for criticizing daytime talk show hostess Wendy Williams for mocking her marriage to registered sex offender and ex-con Kenny "Zoo" Petty, 41.
Nicki's Black fans were disappointed at the rapper using an outdated racist term to describe her race.
One user tweeted: "You know what..I love your music. But the fact that you said 'white ppl' and then refer to us as 'the blacks' just furthers the idea that 'blacks' aren't people".
Another user tweeted: "Nicki Minaj said white people listen to her music like good fans while the blacks remind her that her husband ain't even buy her a wedding ring".
And a third user wrote: "Did this trick @NICKIMINAJ really say 'white ppl >>>>>>>> the blacks'?!"
The blacks ain’t sitting right with my spirit

I think the main issue is her referring to Black (always capatilize the 'B') people as "the blacks" while calling white people as they are. That tweet looked like it was written by a white racist, so it's problematic and she deserves to get called out for it.

. "THE BLACKS?" You are aware the only people that say that are racists? You could rephrase your sentence to say the same thing without "the blacks" part. Blacks will simply do. Black outlets etc.

Uplifting white media over “the blacks”, as if she isn’t black and didn’t get her start off of black media and fans. And the two shows in the clip can’t be compared, as they were discussing two different things
