Komplicated believes that you do. So, despite our editor-in-chief expressing the opinion that it's all about intent — Hootie yes, Vanilla Ice no, Living Colour yes, Kreayshawn no — but we're gonna let you have your say!
Your choices …

- It tries to speak to a Black audience
(the "modern Essence" paradigm)
- It has to be Black owned
(the "old BET" argument)
- It has to be like stuff made by Black people
(the Vanilla Ice/Kreayshawn atrocity)
- Who the hell am I — or you — to judge?
(the isolationist proposition)
