Whereas most of us were amazed by Beyoncé’s Super Bowl half-time show, there’s a faction of white women who are now calling for a Beyoncé’ boycott.
According to sensitive white women, “Formation” is anti-police. And sends a wrong message to people. But never mind the fact that the video was subtly addressing police brutality and the killing of black people.
It’s crazy how showing black pride and embracing black culture always makes people feel some kind of way. Would it be asking too much for white people to boycott killer cops? Probably so.
The bigger picture in these scenarios is the fact that some white people can’t stand it when black people, famous or not, speak out against systematic racism. But they really need to get over it.
For the record, I’m not even a die-hard Beyoncé fan, or read too much into her video. But let the woman live. Not everything needs to be dissected.
