Honestly, when I first watched the video, I was uncomfortable but I couldn’t explain why. Then I watched it over again… The catchy chorus had me caught up for a minute, but then I started really analyzing it and figured out why I wasn’t empowered by the song or the video. 

Black women as props yet again. And what’s worse is that this song keeps getting juxtaposed to Nicki’s Anaconda in terms of body positivity and sexuality, and which is more empowering. A white woman naked, with cheeks split will still be seen as angelic and innocent. (Explicit Example: Look at porn and how innocence is only attached to whiteness, and also works when in conjunction with thinness.) Black women are scripted as hypersexual savage beasts. So the fact that Meghan Trainor is apart of creating this apparent “body-positivity anthem” and offsetting her white body next to mainly Black women twerking and popping their ‘booty’ that Meghan apparently brought back is another way of placing a racist hierarchy on beauty, and therefore worthiness. *Throwback to Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back while also co-opting Black culture but throwing Janet Jackson under the bus when it was convenient to be white.*
This video literally reaffirms what society thinks of Black women. We’re disposable props, hypersexual, and accessible to anyone who wants to consume us.

I got a feel that there’s a hint of “Blaccent”/ co-opting of AAVE in certain lines. On some straight up Elvis ish. Also similar to everyone’s favorite appropriators: Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, Justin Timberlake, Kreyshawn, Lil’ Debbie, etc. 

The video reaffirms a lot of problematic cultural norms. If you look hard enough, you can see that there are other examples of how our culture has defined this hierarchy of beauty and systemic racism.
The little girls are playing with dolls but all the dolls are white. "You know I won’t be no stick-figure, silicone Barbie doll." Well, some of us didn’t have a Barbie to reference in the first place.  
Meghan sits at a table with a supposed love interest and he’s a beauty-standard attractive white man fitting the standard of whom we’re supposed to look to for validation (in terms of oppressive thinking). But interestingly enough, white men are the ones in power reaffirming that Black women need to be thinner and whiter because our bodies are seen as grotesque. So, having this ‘booty’ and ‘bass’ only helps non-Black women (primarily white women) when it comes to validation from white men. 

The only fat person (SIONE MARASCHINO) in the video (who is slayinggggggg all you basics) seems to be a prop in a video still upholding thinness. Meghan isn’t fat even by white standards. “I ain’t no size 2…” But you’re not far from it, boo. The other women in the video aren’t fat either. **It’s important to note that when critiquing the Black women in the video, their thinness is not the same as Meghan’s or the other white women. Black women’s bodies are other-ed as beastly, ugly, animalistic, and overly sexual. But as a conscious fat black woman, I only see thin women in this video.

Fat people are used as fun accessories too. "Lol, my funny fat friend that defies all odds of fat people! Omg, they’re just like a big teddy bear!" Want your outfit to be cuter? Grab a fat friend to bring out those hues of thin privilege!

Fat people are people, each complex in their own way. We’re not all the same. Our history, our story, our experiences, our bodies are all different. There’s so much more to fat people than oversimplification of “that’s funny” and “they’re so cuddly.” But it is interesting that this video showcased a fat man rather than fat women even though the song is geared towards women- therefore, what oppressive thinking are we really disrupting in this video? BOOP.
So my final two cents: I’m not here for any of it except for Sione Maraschino slaying and taking names because he deserves praise for killing it regardless of this problematic video and music artist.

I knew I hated this song for a reason.

Oh come off it. If she had an all white cast, y’all would be pissed about that too. Maybe they’re her friends, maybe she wanted back up dancers who could actually dance? Because lord knows if she had white girls who could dance, they “culturally appropriated” it from black women who could dance.
Please, fight the good fight, but choose your battles. The song is catchy, has a good message, and has a cute video.
And every child knows who Barbie is.

"If she had an all white cast…" Then they would all have power and privilege in being white therefore, there wouldn’t be a question of her using them as props because they would be on the same level. White people call it diversity when you throw Brown and Black bodies in the background to supplement their message when its convenient and profitable but don’t actually analyze what it means to be inclusive of people who are excluded institutionally. "Maybe they’re her friends!" Meghan twerking isn’t equal to a Black woman twerking in the background. Their bodies are scripted differently. Their experiences aren’t the same. Their empowerment IS NOT THE SAME. "And every child knows who Barbie is." Yeah, maybe a large percentage of children know who Barbie is, but who looks like Barbie in terms of race, facial features, hair texture/ style, and size? It matters what Barbie looks like because that helps shape a child’s perception of beauty and worthiness. While you’re busy reenforcing the idea that white is the default, people of color are out here fighting for our right to exist.

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people

saying “that’s how things are” is incredibly useless when talking about social issues because yes, we are aware that that’s how things are, and we don’t like it, that’s the whole point

congratulations on providing no useful input to the conversation

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
