If Taylor Swift Is Racist …

This Is What Caused It.

I’m Tired Of Everything Being Called Racist

(If the video does not automatically play, go to youTube and type in: “Shake It Up”)

I never saw a Taylor Swift music video – never was even tempted.  But when I heard some black rapper call Swift’s latest video “racist” and “promoting black stereotypes,”  I had to check it out.  I did and all I can say is -yawn-.  Anything can be called racist depending on what you’re looking for.  And from my “white perspective,” I’ll honestly say I’m bored with it.  There IS racism in America but it doesn’t permeate every single aspect of all our society all of the time (and yes I understand systemic racism.)

“Racist” used to mean something.  It was hateful, disgusting, and true racists seemed less than civilized humans.  Today the term has been used so many times in so many situations, it has lost its meaning. Now seemingly every bad thing from police shootings to bottom-of-the-barrel education scores is supposedly caused by racism.  I just don’t buy it anymore.  This video is a good example.
