Not seeing the racism in the taylor swift ‘shake it off’ video.

An artist incorporating different cultural dances in their videos is not “cultural appropriation” its an artist incorporating different cultural dances.

That term is overplayed, overused and needs to go somewhere.

Kanye west had ballet in his video…what the appropriation or is it only one way?

It’s like the ones complaining have internalized the belief that twerking is bad because when it shows up it’s a immediate negative reaction.

Guess what, a cool fun dance is going to spread across cultures. Get over it. It originated in black american culture which can be appreciated and acknowledged. Lets talk when it’s purposely held in a negative light or exploited

Now Miley was questionable. That was more “I’m black now because this is blackness”. This was more ‘I’m exploring and expressing a culture I’m interested in.’

Please hold fire, be more precise and be more accurate. The knee jerk accusations aren’t helping.

Can someone help point me to what political party/philosophy/movement I would be good with?

-Equal Human Rights


-Environment A large concern


-Smaller, limited Government


- Basic healthcare, food, AND housing should be available to all. 


- Changes on spending and saving depending on the currents of reality.


-I’m cool with consumer/consumption but I am anti-OVERconsumption. I only believe the basics shouldn’t be capitalized anything else is ok. 


-Vastly decreased military spending


-Less tall pyramid more small mound. The masses make up most of the mound. 


-Legalizing most drugs/Marijuana. 


-Less incarceration more rehabilitation
