TRISHES (Trish Hosein) is a singer-songwriter of Trinidadian descent whose 2021 album The Id
deals with the discrimination she faced growing up in America. This is particularly acute on "Venom
," the first release from the project.
"If you are a woman of color in America, and you stand up for yourself, you will be called angry or aggressive," she told Songfacts. "For most of my life I blamed myself for my anger. I thought it was an innate flaw. I realize now that my anger came from my subconscious understanding of the inequalities and injustices that surrounded me, whether or not I had the understanding of what those were."
