I’m currently addicted to Imagine Dragon’s song Warriors and I’m blaming the League of Legends World Championship video -_-

WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.

Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.

If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.

Ugh. Damn.

I’m kinda mad at my family right now and myself.

I had an aunt and uncle that’s helping me with money for school come visit last week, and I was supposed to see them on Friday, but according to my mom my uncle was being a bit of a giant butt because he’s recently retired and recently diagnosed as diabetic and he’s being stubborn and grumpy. So they kept pushing back the day I was supposed to see them until Sunday. Well I saw them Sunday, returned home, had a lot of homework, got stressed out, and missed both my biology lectures this past week from being sick Tuesday and not having my alarm go off on Thursday.

I have a test Tuesday.

I’m reviewing the things I learned on Memrise and I’ve forgotten a good 30% of all I learned, remember about 20%, and haven’t even learned the other 50% from the last two lectures that’ll be on this test.

UGH. I was off to such a good start to the semester and now I’m worried about my first test >.<

Not gonna lie, I kinda like the health app and this new emergency medical ID that can be viewed without even unlocking the phone in case of an emergency….

So I watched this music video, and this is in fact completely untrue. There are many scenes in which black/brown girls are casted.
One could conceivably argue that  any white star who features twerking in a music video is automatically being exploitative.
However, that was not my perception of this video in particular. It actually appeared to me the director took pains to portray a variety of dance styles (ballet, interpretive dance, rhythmic gymnastics, break dancing, twerking, cheerleading, etc.) all as equally valid art forms. Every performing group in the video includes a variety of ethnicities. I think I did actually see a black/brown dancer in the ballet troupe, though it’s difficult to tell. Look in the rear left of this gif:

We don’t know if they cast individual dancers or hired a dance troupe, so if black women are underrepresented that might say more about the dance troupe’s selection practices than the video director’s casting practices.
All the styles of dance, ballet or otherwise are presented in the same fashion — talented professionals being brilliant + Taylor Swift being endearingly incompetent. The black women in the video aren’t portrayed as Taylor’s dancing accessories, but rather as experts in their style:







Moreover, at the end of the video there’s a sequence showing all the different professionals being silly and dancing in a non-choreographed manner, thereby humanizing them, showing they exist outside of their role as dancers in Taylor’s video:


I think if we interpret the twerking scenes in this video as demeaning, that says more about our cultural perception of black women than it does about this particular video’s specific portrayal of black women. 

It killed me that no one saw that this was clearly about different dance styles.
