I don't see where anyone suggested she give up music or even rap.

Zimmerman went a bit far and I think (from the little I know of this music) she probably missed the mark on this particular case (especially her title - but we know headlines). However, she's talking about Iggy's style and content, and, yes, background. She's not demanding Iggy give up being an artist altogether. It's not a bad piece and she tries to address the issue strongly while acknowledging it's a tricky one.

So I think reacting to that as "OMG segregation! Reverse racism!" etc (which I know you aren't doing Avril) is facepalmingly overreacting. To the OPs credit, it didn't go quite that far. Still, I think it misses this point as well.
