Slayyyter - Troubled Paradise

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Inland Empire, Oct 3, 2018.

  1. This feels sad because I spent a lot of this year listening to Slayyyter. Everyone knows enough to know what the word means and how it is a slur, the way she is using the word is specially to be racist, similarly to Camila. It's not 'when i was younger i was uneducated,' it's 'when I was younger i was deliberately racist'. And it's very easy...not to be. At any age.

  2. Lord, how difficult is it to not be racist?

  3. This feels like an excuse? Plenty of people use socials (unbearably) and never post racist shit. She and Camila felt those things, it wasn't Twitter or Tumblr's fault.
  4. It just feels like they’re sooo sorry once they get exposed, but have no clue how hurtful those disgusting racist messages actually are.

    Same with Sabrina, Camila etc. What a mess.

  5. How long till someone unearths clips and screenshots of Björk using that frightening "sound is the n***** of the world" quote repeatedly through the years and in full uncensored mode?

  8. Pretty sure Tinashe retweeted a joke about Rihanna getting beaten by Chris Brown way back in 2009, It's deleted now because Rihanna stans found it when Tinashe was first starting to blow up with 2 On and I guess they felt threatened at the time.

    I know a lot of people that tweeted or posted shit like that especially in the Black community. Not a pass but that relationship toward Black men, Black women, and abuse is a huge and mystifying yet undeniable thing amongst a lot of us. I’m glad she deleted it but there’s a much more layered understanding behind shit like that.
  10. Not to mention young girls worldwide are groomed to believe 'l0Ve is pAIn!!1' and other trash opinions when it comes to love.

  12. Phew it really pays to stan these young white gerls at a cautiously safe arm's length, doesn't it.

  13. Why do all the white pop girls a lot of you decide to stan end up being racist????? And please, in 2019 can white people who are clocked for their racism stop using their youth as a get out of jail free card. You said what you said all those years ago and you meant what you said otherwise you wouldn't have said it.

    The thing that really gets under my skin about these notes app apologies is that they always claim they were “uneducated”, as if the blame lies with others for not deliberately teaching them that bigotry is a bad thing. It’s not that difficult to figure out that hating others for harmless differences is morally wrong even in such a hateful world. No one teaches you not to be a bigot, you’re taught to be one and it’s your responsibility to think critically about whether the ideas you’re being fed are actually beliefs you want to hold.
  15. Just think it’s worth noting that Caroline’s apology wasn’t vague and half committal.

  16. Those tweets were such a good investment!

    Not excusing her at all? Twitter gave her a platform to post those things and people do use that system mostly to troll/be trash, to be honest. That’s why I’m not surprised.

  18. I wasn't only replying to you my fellow #bossbabe hun, just an observation cause people say 'Twitter is the worst' a lot and it's not the medium it's who's behind the keyboard.

  19. Yup. She quoted a lyric from a song she loved and managed to be the only one to give a proper, succinct, direct apology about the usage of that word.

  20. It’s just me or it feels weird that people are using this as an opportunity to promote artists that sounds like Slayyyter?
