all the criticism miley has been is pretty telling. very few comments about her casual racism….and yet a megaclusterfuckingTON of outrage about how she expresses her sexuality, how she dances, her hair, her ass, etc
here are some valid criticisms of miley:
- she uses black women as accessories
- she has claimed twerking as her own
- she portrays black women as animals
here are some invalid criticisms of miley:
- she’s acting like a slut/ho/whore/trash
- she’s disappointing her father
- her ass is too small
Reblogging because it’s very nicely boiled down in this post.
Everyone has problems. That’s the human condition….Everyone has them. But DuBois was pointing to something different. Not just having problems, but being a problem. How does it feel to be a problem? To have your very body and the bodies of your children to be assumed to be criminal. Violent. Malignant. How does it feel to be trapped on the roof of your home as the flood waters rise and be called a refugee? How does it feel to wear the symbol of your faith and be assumed to be a terrorist threat to your own nation? How does it feel to have the president who looks like you demanded to produce proof of his citizenship? How does it feel to know that when you speak the language of your parents,you will be assumed to be illegal? How does it feel to know that if you marry the person you love, some will say that you are destroying the very fabric of the country? How does it feel to fear sending your son to the 7-11 for a bag of Skittles on a rainy night?
