Listen to this! The Beatles stole my music, Elvis stole my hairdo, and James Brown stole my scream, and I believe Smokey Robinson stole my Swiss Army knife. But I can’t prove it.

I’m gone at “Smokey Robinson stole my pocketknife.” How’s uncle Richard doing lately, anyway?
This movie was everything
"White girls like you. Creepin up, takin our men. The whole world aint enough, you gotta conquer ours too"
- Nikki played by Bianca Lawson (Save The Last Dance 2001)
It really says something that in this movie they decided to make the Black Woman pointing out the white girl’s privilege, be the villain.
Yup. She was the villain and we were supposed to sympathize with the poor lone white girl who was just trying to ‘fit in’.
They actually pull this twice in the film because Kerry Washington’s character (Derek’s sister) speaks and defends Nikki, telling her that yes, you are a white girl, and your privilege gives you the benefit of pretending to be black, and then they vilify her too.
But honestly this movie was some bullshit, because they made Nikki out to be bitter, only to have the lone white girl stand up for herself against the mean black girl. But hold up, because Fredro Starr’s character tells her the same shit, only more blunt, less polite, and less profound “You’re like milk and he’s like oil you just don’t mix.”…but no one says shit to him doe.
Let’s talk about how she got into Julliard because she learned some cool black dances like the “Heel Toe” for example. I don’t see the Bianca’s in the world getting Julliard scholarships for doing moves that been apart of the Black Community since ever. I mean the reasons we’re given to sympathize with Julia Childs character is some side eye worthy shit.
She’s from working class, living with a single parent, loss a parent in an crucial time in her life. Like I’m sure a good chunk of those Black kids living in Chicago, experience the same shit, but loner white girl is the “special snowflake” doe.
Also, when was the last time we saw Bianca Lawson?
all this! and bianca stay working

and now she’s on Witches of East End as a recurring character.
Robin Thicke is unapologetic about how rapey ‘Blurred Lines’ is, meanwhile the dude who parodied it issues a public apology for one word.
And that is just one reason why I love Weird Al.
