Dear White America,
Get over it. Now. Kanye West didn’t steal Taylor Swift’s innocence, he made you endear her more. And there’s nothing you love more than a pretty, blonde white girl in distress to rescue. It makes you feel important, and I get that. But stop it.
The video above is of Kanye being booed at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, an event geared towards children. Is it appropriate to boo someone? Normally, yes, but can you explain in a mature way to your child or the children around why you are booing and why that action is an appropriate response? It’s not an appropriate response given the context of the situation.
Could you have shouted ‘Taylor, Taylor’? Yes, but it’s still relatively immature although better than booing. Or perhaps teach the children that the response to a bully (Kanye) is to turn the other cheek and not commit the same indecency. Just a thought.
So I think it really boils down to White America needing to get over itself and just let Kanye live. Sure he’s an asshole, he even toasts to it; but now, so are you. You Sirs, are assholes. Now boo yourselves. Let’s just move on, and boo people who actually make the world a worse place, not those who hurt the fragile ego of an ungrateful teenage girl…yes, TSwfit is ungrafeful. She didn’t even say ‘thank you’ to Beyonce for later letting her have her moment redone.
