Mark Knight of the Australian Newspaper, the Herald Sun, decided that in the wake of all the controversy going on around the US Open match Between Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka he'd toss his hat in the ring. King created a racist cartoon that depicts Williams with over-sized features in a complete frenzy destroying her tennis racket perceivably because she wasn't winning.
?He is sure to include a pacifier so that it is clear she is portrayed in a toddler tantrum like form. One thing to notice as well is that he decided not only to retain the features in the umpire, Carlos Ramos who also was a part of the interaction, but significantly reduced the stature and features of Williams Opponent, Osaka. She is not recognizably Haitian or Japanese. She looks like a blonde caucasian woman. Knight is undergoing much backlash for his tasteless caricature of a life altering day for both Naomi Osaka and Serena Williams. His responses to critics have been brash and sarcastic. As of now, this has not been retracted nor has there been an apology from the Herald Sun.
Much is to be recognized about this and the societal norms surrounding the perception of women in prestigious places especially those of color. Women are not given the same treatment as men who also have done and exceeded the level of passion or resistance Williams displayed in the US Open tournament. Women are not expected to respond with such fervor to male authority figures, and this is the sad reality.
Women's rights have been fought for and many achieved but are still not recognized or respected by many. In the wake several social movements, much is still to be done for those breaking barriers in Women's equality.

GroovNuke and $NOOP discuss the release of $NOOP's first official project 'Iron Man 400 Stark', the 'Stark Tower', feedback from his first release and so much more. â€‹
Proud of my brother @dbsnoop4 if you knew what it took
(@GroovNuke) August 10, 2018"Can't wait til I can say I really made it. Iron Man 400 Stark, no need to grade it"
" You know this sh*t hard don't try to shade it."
Lyrics by $noop.
If you haven't been in the loop with $noop and his first project 'Iron Man 400 Stark', what are you waiting for?
It's been almost month since the release of his debut project. $noop is still cooking up more heat in the meantime and still makes it his daily mission to continue to push his craft and improve. BBoy produced the full project with the exception of NEW Pesos (prod. Johnny Bangz), and DC engineered the project.
$noop turned pain, loss, and many long nights into triumph. Thus the Iron Man 400 Stark era began. Sometimes you just got to throw on the armor and get ready for what's in front of you. He took pride in embracing the Tony Stark persona on this one, turned his greatest thoughts into the Stark Tower. What is that exactly? You're about to find out through our Q+A interview. GroovNuke: So bro, let the people know WHAT EXACTLY is the Stark Tower?
$noop: The Stark Tower is just my way of thinking, a way of life. You know, in Tony Stark's tower can oversee everything and that's just my view of life. That's when it was born. I Am Iron MAN 400 Stark.
Groovnuke: Describe the process of making the intro. 'Stark Tower'. You said a lot on there that will leave people wondering about your life, but you also left room for people to turn back to reflect on theirs.
$NOOP: After I got into the project, I just had the beat and realized it was cold as hell. So I wrote to it a few times and it came together. I got good feedback and they all said I should make it my intro so I went with it.
GroovNuke: Did you plan for a project with no features, or did it just go down like that?
$noop: I had a few features lined up, but we were on two different pages when the time came. But it's all good.
On the intro to 'Iron Man 400 Stark', $noop brings the people in with his tough storytelling and vivid lines.
"You don't live how I live you don't know my position. So many days ain't have a pot to piss, nothing to sh*t in. Now every time I hit the stu I treat it like a way in. I swear I never want to leave, DC can I stay in?"
The process of making this project was no easy one for $noop, and he expressed it throughout the project. When you have low moments and you create something special such as a project, the grind speaks for itself. All the late nights in the stu, pushing for promotion, and everything is surely due to pay off for $noop. The grind to get known is becoming scarce. A lot of people are afraid to get 10 toes down for where they want to be in life. $noop on the other hand, he gone step.
Groovnuke: Describe your Coast2Coast LIVE experience?
$noop: It was a good experience. Shoutout to Arizona y'all got some good people out there. It could've been a better show though. A lot of things I didn't like but I made the most of it from the time I was there until the time I left. I should've had show versions of my tracks, but it's cool I can take a 81/100.
GroovNuke: Who were your biggest rap inspirations coming up? Who are some you model yourself after these days?
$noop: Man, Herb. You know I rock with Herb heavy it been like that since the jump.Boosie, Meek Mill, Bump J, Bankroll Fresh rip StreetMoneyWorldwide, all my fallen soldiers everybody I do this for.
GroovNuke: How old were you exactly when you started rapping?
$noop: I started out jotting down rhymes in the fifth grade. Came a long way from that. Seventh and Eighth grade I got back into it but in high school is when I really jumped in the booth. I wish I took it seriously back then because I could've been reached this point of progress.
GroovNuke: If you had to play one of your songs in front of people who've never listened to you to put them on, what would it be?
$noop: 'Fortnite'. That's the song everybody rocking with for the most part. It's a real attention grabber because Fortnite is a real trendy game right now.

GroovNuke: Recently, Shakey came through with the IG co-sign for one of your singles'Fortnite', tell me how that happened.
