Through The Grapevine

March 13, 2018

What would you do if your friend told you that your boyfriend is bisexual? This week’s Letter For The Culture was so important it had to be tackled in our kiki segment. Betsy Devos was more confused than a substitute in the wrong classroom during her “60 Minutes” interview with Lesley Stahl. Betsy struggles to answer basic questions in a scheduled interview.

‘The Grapevine” panel discussion that we were so fortunate to be a part of made Bruno Mars the #1 trending topic on Twitter pinning the questions is he a culture appropriator.  What do you think?

    Love you two!
    I had to kindly remove myself from this conversation when it started trending. The necessary conversation on cultural appropriation and colorism was tainted from the beginning by rooting it on questioning whether Bruno is a cultural appropriator. Of course it would go left. We have to do better with these needed conversation and not sidetrack our own goals. How Bruno benefits from colorism is a good conversation. Overall cultural appropriation of rap and rnb music and upilfting unrecognized black artists is a great conversation. Can a man of color be guilty of cultural appropriation would have been more interesting. But starting a conversation of this importance on framing Bruno as if he is a white man and is a cultural appropriator sidelined the entire discussion.
