This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
Uh Hi! I really don’t mean to be rude I just want to point something out…In Lilly Allen’s song “Hard out here” The point of the video was to objectify women to show how it constantly happens in the music industry, and WOC were not only objectified in the video itself (You can literally see white women throughout the video)…. Also I just wanted to apologize for the ignorance of some white men and women…I personally believe the exploration of other cultures is beautiful if done properly! But personally I see no harm in dressing in the attire of other cultures (As long as you make sure you aren’t traipsing over sacred boundaries)
Great Crested Grebes nesting in the campus of York University. There are three chicks, which are approximately ten days old, nestling on the back of their parents, safely tucked under feathers. Once hatched the chicks climb straight onto the back of their parents and ride around with them, in order to be protected from predators.
