White privilege doesn’t mean that every single white person is better off than every single person of color in every single instance would could possibly imagine. If you’re confused about what white privilege is, I know this blog that literally exists to compile examples of white privilege. You should check it out. It’s called our blog, this one, the one you’re on right now.

See also twerking, people praise Miley Cyrus for doing it but shame black women for doing it. See also black culture, it's frowned upon on black people EVEN THOUGH ITS THEIR CULTURE but white people go through phases of "acting black" i.e Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and get told they're innovative and cool. You might not have witnessed these things happening but they do happen. Just cause you don't see it happening doesn't mean you should dismiss it.

But like how do cultures evolve if they dont blend?

Blending isn’t using black women as props to verify street credit which is exactly what Miley does. She entered the world of hip hop/pop type genre and then used black women around her in videos to give her her street credit. Black women are consistently used as objects which is what Nicki was speaking on. She cut a banana, which was a reference to a penis, in half. She slapped Drake’s hand away. She used Sir Mix A Lot’s objectifying Baby Got Back sample in her song so she could use a clear example of how women, especially thicker black women are reduced down to objects. She did her lines like a black man would, and shined a light on sexuality of black women. Coming together and “blending” is appreciating other cultures not using them for money, which is what Miley first did when she entered this genre. Here is the scenario, black women invented the “twerk”. So when a black woman does it in her video its suddenly not okay, but you guys will let Miley bop all around trying to do the same but use her background dancers for it? They’re PROPS. Such as Nicki was showing Drake was a prop. She slapped his hand away affirming her power and how she’s sick of men objectifying her because of her body. It has nothing to do with cultural appropriation, and clearly white people need more education on this subject, but I’m sure you said this for attention.

One time this girl really hated me and wanted to ruin my reputation or something so one day i was talking to a boy and she came up and really obnoxiously said “you know she has a crush on you right?” and he was like “man i hope so or else this is gonna get really awkward”

She fuckin told my boyfriend that i liked him
