Let me get this right………… Miley fucking Cyrus was one of the 10 finalists for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year (Pope Francis won — http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/12/11/time-person-pop-francis/3985479/). How exactly does mocking black culture, using black women as props, poorly attempting a dance that’s been around for 15+ years, make you qualify for person of the year? How exactly is that revolutionary? Black women walking through the streets, navigating racism, sexism, classism, and in some cases homo/transphobia, is revolutionary. Black women survive against odds stacked against them… black women endure the assaults on themselves, as well as their sons and daughters. Surviving this in itself is revolutionary. Mocking it for the camera is not. Shame on you Time Magazine.
Interestingly enough, when Miley decides she’s sick of black culture and decides to cash in her privilege chips to be a good whole western woman, she’ll be nominated again."
