Taylor Swift's New Video - RACIST!


Locutus

On Monday, Taylor Swift, the artist formerly (slightly) known as country, released the video for “Shake It Off,” the first single from her forthcoming pop (!) album, “1989.” The backlash was instantaneous.

The video features Swift “dancing” alongside professional dancers from a number of genres. She stands at the barre with a group of Swan Lake ballerinas, jumps up and down among breakdancers, emotes in the middle of contemporary dancers and, at one point, crawls underneath a line of Daisy Dukes-wearing twerkers.

Rapper Earl Sweatshirt tweeted that the video was “inherently offensive and ultimately harmful” for its portrayals of black stereotypes — though Mr. Sweatshirt admitted that he hadn’t actually, you know, seen the video, which spawned a thousand think pieces wondering if the its inclusion of twerking was racist, innocent but misguided, or something else entirely.

Here's the video in question -

Clearly the director was attempting to parody various genres of music/dancing. But since one of those was twerking, and that is associated with black people, it's called racist. Crybaby minorities at it again. A simple nigga please would be suffice.

...as a side note, would bang Miss Swift and I would let her shake it off.

I don't see anything wrong with the video, and all I can say, if you don't like it, or offended by the video, you're free not to buy the CD or download the iTune.

You can really get tired of this PC idiots.

I thought twerking was Myley Cryrus. Last I checked, she ain't black. But she could be doing a reverse Michael Jackson. Don't watch entertainment news so no idea.

And because one critic says it that means all minorities are to be included in your criticism?
