Read this: Solidarity is For Miley Cyrus: The Racial Implications of her VMA Performance

“Okay…. but can we talk about the problematic and racist nature of her performance? Her literal use of people as props? Her association of her newfound sexuality with the traditional codifiers of black female culture”

This article is so important . I just read it this morning and wanted to add it, because I feel bad I didn’t write more about it in the first place. Please read and consider.

And if you’re still interested/upset/horrified, read this: http://www.vulture.com/2013/08/jody-rosen-miley-cyrus-vmas-minstrel.html

And then, if you’re interested in the #solidarityisforwhitewoman concept, read this http://girlsglobe.org/2013/08/20/solidarityisforwhitewomen-calls-for-solidarity-of-all-women/ and consider your role in it all.
