There’s a whole bunch of outrage in the black community over Miley Cyrus carrying herself like an official representative of the urban music scene and asking songwriters to give her shit to sing that sounds black. The outrage actually seems to be mostly from a bunch of white people who like to get up in arms on behalf of the black community because that makes them feel like they’re enlightened.
“Which brings us back to Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance – a perfect illustration of just how the celebrity world appropriates black culture and female liberation”. — Hadley Freeman, writing op-ed in The Guardian.
Hadley managed to nail two civil rights buttons in one sentence, so I think she wins a college degree from Vassar or something. Mostly I suspect every race, creed, and color has more important things to do than worrying about Miley Cyrus thumping her ass and wearing her sweat pants too low. Yeah, I’m sure it sucks when some
retard with her tongue hanging out Maxim’s hottest woman in the world starts borrowing your shit to turn a buck, but Miley’s fans are the same ones buying up Kanye albums in enough numbers that he got to make a baby in Kim Kardashian. It’s a convoluted balancing of the scales. I’ll explain it in more detail in my lengthy forthcoming essay: I’m White and I Feel Bad About Shit So I’m Better Than You.
