Why are there many air heads calling Madonna a racist? If the media is all you have as proof of someone’s character and personality, you’re in for disappointment.
And quit whining about Madonna ‘appropriating’ vogue into pop culture. What is pop culture? Who are fans of pop culture? Just white people? Just black people?
Madonna certainly made house dancing mainstream. And she did not do it herself, she brought in dancers from xtravaganza and Ninja to join in (These are people who were immersed in the ball culture)
Before you do your research, be ethical. It is clear to me that you’re impartial and have preconceived notions about the subject matter. Stop yapping about who said what and what they meant, if you do not know the person, don’t assume anything.
