Under her rap-persona of CHICHI MA$ALA, Simpson’s hip-hop music video develops sistahood as a method of critique and disruption to the racial fetishism experienced by young mixed-race women in Australia. Reclaiming and disrupting stereotypes of the exotic other and tragic mulatta – through a Mixed Girl Militia, the absurd combines with the sexual and hostile to collectively create a space for self-representation.
