Ya’ll Miley tried it.
She’s not the first mayo-saxon to try and make money off of Black culture and then denounce it once it wasn’t profiting her, but for some reason I’m tight.
I knew that her new found liberation was probably going to be short lived, but for a minute I was feeling her wild persona, especially because it gave way to a “fuck your feelings” type feminism.
DON’T GET ME WRONG! Black feminism has always been fuck your feelings, so honestly idk why I was so hype for Miley’s revelation. (That’s that brainwashing ya’ll. Pray for me.)
Anywho, all over the interwebs, Miley’s face has been popping up with less than flattering headlines….
Like bitch, “she’s ready to distance herself from hip-hop”? There’s the door mama.
White people never cease to amaze me with the things they think they can just pick up and put back down whenever it suits them. For example, every white college boy with sperrys and vineyard vines toilet paper was probably breaking down the doors of every bar in celebration of cinco de mayo yesterday but were the first ones chanting to build a wall.
When are they going to realize that we are not here for their disposal?
To be clear, in the article by XXLMAG, it was said that Miley was distancing herself from the “Come sit on my dick, suck on my cock…” type of hip-hop. Interesting. Wasn’t Miley just telling a crowd to lick her kitty and her crack in response to “that type of hip hop” just the other day?
I’m all for women standing up against music that exploits us but when we decide to point out some and not others, that’s where issues arise. If you’re gonna talk about “that type of hip-hop”, let’s talk about that type of country.
Girl. Best believe I always come equipped with receipts. In any case, I got over feeling some type of way real quick. What did we really expect she was gonna do?
White folks who’ve come and gone before her have done the same thing, and generations after her will follow in her footsteps. I’m not tryna lose any sleep over it.
All I have to say to Miley is, the more you distance yourself the better ms.thing, and while you’re at it, why don’t you get JT, JB, TSwift and practically every white based media outlet and fashion show to distance themselves too.
POC AND OUR CREATIONS ARE NOT YOUR FUCKING PROPS.
