Re: Juicy Article Serena,Beyonce, Obama all in one article
would have been better if they actually talked about each incident in context rather than just saying what bad people serena and kanye are.
the first black president gets that treatment by a white southern who has refused to issue a meaningful apology, and its gets largely overlooked.
serena loses her temper and goes on a tirade. bad calls cheated her in the past at the US Open to the point where they entire game gets an overdue change.
kanye west, among many other musicians is as crazy as he wants to be. the man is insane. award shows dont use their tape delay to avoid airing and re-airing shit that should not be. the MTV awards in particular seems not only to condone scandal but they seem to court the antics of crazies like kanye west.
the article misses the point that this is not new, not recent, not something that anyone in the media really genuine opposes. but it is also far more complicated, than just tempers getting out of control. wealth, race, gender and class (or lack there of) as well as media blitz all play their part.
"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox
