YES WENDY. [x]
He is a rude and disrespectful person and is being given very little press attention for his atrocious behaviour. Whereas Miley is being blasted by EVERYONE for her artistic choices.
and you know she uses black people as props and appropriates black culture but that isn’t important
OK IM SORRY I SEE THIS ALL THE TIME AND I JUST REALLY NEED TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT:
Miley was not, nor ever was, “appropriating black culture.” So she was in her music video twerking with some black women? Why cant she twerk? Is it because shes white? “you cant twerk unless youre black because thats appropriating black culture” is probably more racist than i could ever take miley twerking. Its a fucking dance move, why does it have to be limited to a specific race? Ke$ha was in “Crazy Kids” with grillz and what would probably be considered more urban/black attire but WHERE IS THE MEDIA HATE ON THAT? Oh thats right there is none because you can dress and dance in whatever style you want because those things arent exclusive to race. Rapping was created by and is usually something done by people of the black community, but no one puts down macklemore or eminem for what they do so why does miley have to go through the butt of it?
and as far as black people being props, just because they are in her video doing a dance THAT THEIR CULTURE COINED doesnt make them props. If im doing a bollywood dance and i have Indian people dancing with me in my video does that make them props or just back up dancers because i may not be in the business but i think its the latter.
this just in: using another culture as your personal accessory isn’t cultural appropriation
so glad we could have gotten that cleared up
this just in: having extras in videos of any race, regardless if its your own or not, isnt cultural appropriation.
but this is tumblr and people will read between lines that arent even fucking there if it means they can cry boohoo about how offended they are.
glad we got that cleared up indeed.
sighs ok let me say something since you’re not getting it.
What she is doing, is fucking cultural appropriation. She can sit here and do this and people like you will defend her because you think its okay that she’s doing it, but when a black person twerks [actually twerks, not sits there and shakes their thigh fat like Miley does] they get called ghetto and trash and all sorts of other names.
When they sit there and do it in videos for hip hop or rap, the women in those videos get called hoes and sluts. Shit, Azaelia Banks had fucking Lilly Allen tweet her a dick in black face and aint nobody say shit about it, because oh no, Lilly Allen dropping a song about smashing the patriarchy with her baggy pussy? Fucking feminist icon. Give her an award.
Miley can take off this shit when she wants. She can go home to her pretty little house at night, tuck her ass into bed and know she’s not gonna wake up with windows smashed or someone dying because she’s white.
Black people can’t do that. Black people can’t take off their culture, what they do. They get killed for shit like this, because people [white people] think that they’re ‘ghetto trash’ that doesn’t deserve to exist. There is no fucking reading in between the lines you piece of inept shit.
Its you sitting there ignoring the fact that white people can get away with ripping off other cultures while said culture has to suffer the backlash. That is the problem with Miley. Its not her ‘twerking’, its not her using people as props [which is fucked up as well], its the fact that she can use this shit to her advantage but the people of the ACTUAL CULTURE get nothing but shit.
