(Salon)   Miley Cyrus' ass shaking is racist. But you better like it or else you're misogynist. Subby was going to make a gay joke, but didn't want to be homophobic. Jews   (salon.com) divider line 126

The video is appropriately trashy, but the auto tune is so out of control I can barely force my way through it.

Watching that video, couldn't help thinking, "Man, Lindsay Lohan looks great".

People constantly confuse racism with observing one's culture. Black people have a distinctive culture that has distinctive properties. Observing that is not racist. Now if I were to say that black people were genetically predisposed to shaking their ass when they dance and talking loudly, sometimes shooting at a movie screen, that would be racist, not simply observing the culture. Don't people see the difference?

Didn't really watch, but it sounds like this is Miley Cyrus's "Dirty" but without any vocal ability.

No, No they don't. This is also why people who claim that multiculturalism in Britain doesn't work are shouted down as racist.

OK I skipped through it. Something about lesbians, teddy bears, and a stationary bike. I'm pretty sure this is what Max Headroom was fighting against.

Her moves are somewhat appealing, but the awful tats and that horrific hairstyle ruin it.

So they're very upset that she's capitalizing off of it, because it's racist when she does it.

Isn't she a coal-burner now? It's not her 'reinventing', it's her going over to the...ummm...dark side.

Tricia Rose, a professor of Africana studies at Brown, director of the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America there, and author of "Black Noise: Rap Music and Black Culture in Contemporary America," took issue with Cyrus's use of stereotypically "black" tropes from the world of mass culture to indicate that she was a really wild partier

I am so farking jealous of this bullshiat job. Black people drive like this.

Probably. This is probably his way of getting back at the Man or something.

In a nutshell no one's upset that she's doing it, rather they're just describing what she's doing in terms of racial contextualization and how when white women appropriate some aspects of the culture, they pay a higher price than white men when they do the same thing.

Yep. With whining about white folks being the #1 pastime of many blacks, this woman has scored a job right up there with "medical marijuana tester"--only she's got tenure so she ain't ever going away.

It's not bad for a white girls ass.  She's not going to match up well against latina or black ladies, but there isn't much competition in the white girl field.

I'm sorry but if you are a professor of Afracana studies at Brown and somebody asks you if Miley Cyrus shaking her butt is racist your only answer should be "Stop wasting my time with this bullshiat."

If shaking your ass to one side is appropriating a culture, that "culture" is devoid of any merit that deserves a defense.

If you want to claim spectacularly unattractive spastic motions of the ass cheeks as some form of dance, you go right ahead. If you want to claim spectacularly unattractive spastic motions of the ass checks as some form of cultural heritage, well, you're a f*cking idiot.
