I just saw Divergent. It was soooo good. Now I gotta read the books.
I’m so fucking weird
I’m the nicest rude person you’ll ever meet.
I don’t give a fuck about anything but at the same time, I care about a lot.
I hate people but I want to be everyone’s friend.
I hate myself but I’m completely fabulous.
I need help.
@fullmetalmorphine said: Not refuting what you’re saying, but did you watch the entire Shake it Off video? I ask because the black women featured weren’t just it the twerking scenes.
Yes, I watched the ENTIRE ‘Shake It Off’ video and I really don’t see how the black women not just being featured as the twerkers really matters. She had the ensemble join her at the end because everyone had to join her. The point is that Taylor Swift dressed up in urban clothing, surrounded herself with black women with big butts who twerked (when she is not a black woman with a big butt and can not twerk), and then proceeded to get BENEATH THEM, under their legs and looked up marveling at what was above her and that is the image that is associated with her video the most because that’s the middle image on YouTube for the video. If you don’t think there is something inherently wrong with that… I’m not even going to bother explaining it. And you can try to say she was making a video about all different types of dances and cultures and incorporate everyone and everything. But of course black culture to her was women with big butts who twerk. Because that’s all white people know about black culture and dance. Nevermind the fact that black people invented every fucking major popular dance move in this century and the past. But no, twerking is the one that she chose to associate with urban/black culture. Quite possibly I could have respected her if she would have had both male and female black dancers doing the real Harlem Shake or something to that extent. But having black women in her video so that they could shake their ass just because she can’t do it is pretty much what Miley Cyrus has been accused of doing. Again, I don’t think Taylor is a racist. I think she’s just stupid. And she needs to surround herself with intelligent people.
YOU know nothing. You’re probably a 12 year old white girl who kisses Taylor’s ass and thinks everything she does is perfect. Try to deny anything I said and then I’ll talk to you like you’re actually an intelligent human being worth my time.
