Gina, the "blogmother" over at What About Our Daughters, has laid out the offensive and violent elements of Kanye West's latest video. Women hang lifeless in the background amid rappers talking about how they're monsters in the hip-hop industry.

From What About Our Daughters: Just know that if a White male artist made a video with Black people dangling from ropes and chains from the ceiling ALL HELL WOULD BREAK LOOSE! No don't expect the civil rights industrial which has a long history of opposition to lynching to speak out about this.  Afterall, only women are lynched in Kanye's video and apparently that's A-okay with some of y'all! 

The video's pretty intense, with severed heads and Kanye in bed with two dead women, so follow this link if you'd like to see what all the fuss is about.
