How Pioneering Blues Women Were All But Written out of Official Blues History | Herstory | Scoop.it

While industry gatekeepers were invested in a specific image of black performance, black performers themselves had different ideas.

Does History Repeat Itself, But With More Porn? » Sociological Images

Does History Repeat Itself, But With More Porn? » Sociological Images | Herstory | Scoop.it

In 1990 I was still an American Culture major in college, but I was getting ready to jump ship for sociology. That’s when Madonna’s “Justify My Love” video was banned by MTV, which was a thing people used to use to watch videos. And network TV used to be a major source of exposure.

I was watching when Madonna went on Nightline for an interview.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

Comparing Miley to Madonna is rather spot-on (and something we should be over by now with the growing number of tween & teen stars who have tried to "bust out" as women); but I still stand by the no-no of racist twerking - see http://sco.lt/8kvXzV

Jay-Z and Azealia Banks Call Out Miley Cyrus On Cultural Appropriation; She Doesn’t Get It

Jay-Z and Azealia Banks Call Out Miley Cyrus On Cultural Appropriation; She Doesn’t Get It | Herstory | Scoop.it

When Hannah Montana starts twerking, is she really just being Miley? Or is her appropriation of black culture problematic and oppressive?


...You can twerk and pretend to be “ratchet” but it only lasts for the three minutes and 34 seconds that you’re on screen, and then you can take it all off and live life as the privileged white girl that you are. Other people of color can’t do that. They have to deal with the awful stereotypes, the racism, the discrimination that comes attached to their non-whiteness.


A comment on the youtube page for “We Can’t Stop” really sums up why everything about this sucks: “I love how miley twerks. its not the casual black girl, big ass, twerk, but a white girl showing off her moves. loved it!” Great – so not only are we into the appropriation and exploitation of black culture for profit, but now we’re mocking and degrading that very culture when it’s authentically performed by black people, only to praise it when it’s performed by white people? Ugh.
