I don’t know who Melissa Harris-Perry is but I salute her for this.
She breaks down what is the Harlem Shake, cultural appropriation and why those crazy fun dance videos shouldn’t be called the Harlem Shake.
I know I reblogged earlier, but did y’all catch the shade she threw (twice!) talkin’ bout (white) folks dancing to any old beat??? Yes, MHP is my shero and better than your faves!
MHP don’t play!
“Feel free to fling, jerk and toss yourself around to any beat you feel like…even if you’re the only one who can hear it.”
