With Beyoncé it generally seems like both.

i feel that people will criticize Beyonce harder because well … she’s a black woman.

In her formation video, she sank with a police car.

In Kendrick’s video for Alright, he rode on a car carried by four cops. That to me was kinda louder political statement. I agree with you when you point out that Kdot’s artistry isn’t subject to as much criticism.

Do you think people attack Beyonce because she’s a woman?
