Following the recent Media explosion surrounding Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance, I have reluctantly decided to join the debate... I had promised myself not to jump onto the band wagon, but now is the moment when I will open my mouth to name and shame those stupid media labels: on women, on Black culture (whatever THAT is supposed to be), and on the language of clothing. Long video, but should you wish to jump: 00:45
Women issues, 02:58
Language of Clothing, 06:14
“Black Culture”, 08:10
You may want to pause the video from time to time, if words fly off too fast...
Music by Heitor Villa-Lobos (Brazilian composer), as sung by Barbara Hendricks (African-American Soprano): Bachianas Brasileiras No 5. I DO NOT OWN COPYRIGHT FOR THIS MUSIC.
I have chosen not to add any picture of the people as mentioned in this video; and gave credits within.
