    Wow, I actually feel intellectually drained from reading your article. You say you listen to mostly hip-hop, so you’re obviously biased. In case you never listen to the lyrics of your beloved music (I listen to hip-hop as well, and it’s blindingly obvious) she is referring to a CULTURE and not a specific RACE. “Jet planes, islands”, etc are had by many wealthy people. However, the most likely reason she chose to focus mostly on “song(s)” from the hip-hop genre is due to their incessant glorification of success, money and power. The reason she doesn’t mention polo matches and tea parties is because hip hop is easily accessible. We hear it every day on the radio. We see it every day online. Eminem is a white rapper. Britney Spears is telling women to “work, bitch” for a Maserati. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with race. Gold is the most valuable asset, so she mentions “gold teeth” for lyrical value. If she instead chose the lyrics “gold coins” would it sound as lyrical? Wealthy persons of all backgrounds drink “Cristal” but rappers and hip hop artists are the majority of those mentioning it in nearly every song. I can’t believe this actually has to be explained, and that you’re a published writer.
