Nicki Minaj took to her Twitter today (July 23) to lightly discuss a controversial issue that many believe to be dead, while others live that sad truth everyday. The "Pills and Potions" rapper spoke on racism still existing in today's world, but shortly after encouraged fans to keep their head up and aim for the best.

Minaj tweeted: "Racism is alive and well", "Some people have to put in work. others get to cut corners. we see it but don't say it. welcome to the real world.", and ultimately, "Continue to strive for GREATNESS.".

denied the 2014 BET Award allegations, could this be another shot fired at Iggy Azalea?
