White women doing covers of Anaconda and white folks in general singing along to Sir Mix A Lot is just hilarious to me because both fucking songs are a literal rejection of the white gaze on Black bodies but of course folks too dumb to see when they’re being shit on
Just like when we cakewalked on em…..
like Anaconda removed /EVERY/ instance of the white gaze
even with the “Oh my god, look at her butt!”
"Becky" was very pointedly ommitted
instead of “Oh my god, becky, look at her butt” being a statement of disgust and mockery
it was admiration
"Oh my god, look at her butt"-
I don’t see what “the rejection of the white gaze” has to do with white people enjoying music… ?
No one is saying you can’t enjoy it
The post, or at least the original post, is saying that the song is calling white people out and most white people aren’t aware of it/ aren’t noticing and are singing along to a diss.
they are so out of the loop but want to be a part so bad.
At a Mexican party this weekend, the DJ had the band play a clip of that song while he dry humped the only other Black girl on the dance floor. Just…egregious amounts of racism masquerading as desire. I want no parts of it.
they’re coming for natural hair, y’all.
and the fact that it’s not black women owned frustrates me.
Arguably, one of the most familiar memes of science fiction is that of going to foreign countries and colonizing the natives… for many of us that is not a thrilling adventure story; it’s non-fiction and we are on the wrong side of the strange-looking ship that appears out of nowhere.
