After the controversy of Kylie Jenner’s cornrows sparked over the internet last weekend. Amandla Stenberg had a few choice words for Kylie.
A few days after the fire of the feud exploded on the internet Justin Bieber intervenes.
Justin apparently felt really strong that people were examining Kylie’s movements and translated it into racism. Which may be true for most people who decided to comment on the controversy without having complete knowledge of racism itself. Not taking time to fully understand the difference between race and culture. I took the liberty of giving a brief lesson. Get your pens, pads, and iphone notes ready, and read CAREFULLY. 🙂
1. the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.
2. prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one’s own race is superior.
1. The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively.
2. The attitudes and behaviour characteristic of a particular social group.
In my opinion, I don’t think Kylie is racist at all. To even insinuate that she is racist after all of the black guys that came in and out of the Kardashian/Jenner family (No pun intended) is completely preposterous.
I do indeed think that she loves urban culture, but she (just like many) isn’t aware of the divide between cultures.
As for Justin? …
Now, now Justin. Don’t get too worked up. We totally understand that you are concerned for your friend, but you in fact are no stranger for being under fire with the media yourself. Hasn’t been too long since you were making a PSA apologizing for using the N word on camera, or any of your other antics for that matter. The seventh seat will do just fine.
