This belongs more on Facebook than it does on tumblr.

In my personal opinion, as a black woman, this Taylor Swift outrage is beyond over the top.
This is not a Lily Allen/Miley Cyrus situation. Those two women EXCLUSIVELY used black women’s bodies as sexual objects. Their back up dancers were exclusively black women, and their only use was to be groped, shake their asses, etc.
Taylor has black women and POC dancing in all of the different segments. The dancers in the ‘twerking’ segment aren’t exclusively black women. The entire point of Taylor’s MV is clearly to showcase different, talented dancers while simultaneously poking fun at herself for being unable to do what they can do. It’s harmless, it’s tongue-in-cheek, and to equate her video to Lily Allen/Miley Cyrus’ seriously problematic/offensive music videos is too much and takes away from the discussion at hand.
