Le nouveau clip de Taylor Swift jugé raciste

Haters gonna hate ?

Publié le

Après la diffusion de son nouveau clip « Shake It Off » ce lundi 18 août, Taylor Swift a rapidement été accusée aux États-Unis de « perpétuer des stéréotypes sur les Noirs. »

Sur Twitter, le rappeur Earl Sweatshirt a déclaré qu'il n'avait pas besoin de regarder le clip pour savoir que certaines de ses scènes étaient « fondamentalement insultantes et nuisibles. »

perpetuating black stereotypes to the same demographic of white girls who hide their prejudice by proclaiming their love of the culture

D'autres internautes ont repris ces commentaires, critiquant notamment la scène où Taylor Swift est habillée comme un breakdancer, et une autre où des ballerines sont toutes représentées par des femmes blanches.

You know what this Taylor Swift video is missing? Some nice graffiti by Bieber. Let’s be urban, everyone! Yay, cupcakes.

Country Taylor Swift > 'Hip hop' Taylor Swift

That new Taylor Swift video is a Joke. The same person "traumatized" by Kanye is now twerking and wearing hoop earings. #offensive

D'autres encore ont été gênés par le ton enjoué de la chanson, alors que l'actualité de la journée était marquée par les manifestations de Ferguson.

Taylor Swift is twerking while Ferguson is burning. That's pretty much America in 140 characters or less.

Cool, so is Taylor Swift going to raise awareness of Ferguson for her fans now? Oh, no, just the twerking? Shake it off, I guess.

Après cette vague de critiques, de nombreux internautes ont pris la défense de Taylor Swift. L'utilisateur Tumblr Orhgasm, par exemple, a écrit :

En tant que Noir et fier de l'être, je ne trouve pas la vidéo de Taylor Swift pour son nouveau single "Shake it off" problématique, et encore moins raciste. Si vous avez pris la peine de regarder la vidéo, le clip traite surtout du fait d'être heureux, de danser et de faire l'éloge de toutes les autres danses. Il se trouve que l'une d'entre elles est le twerking. Taylor n'a pas fait d'"appropriation culturelle" et son clip n'est pas "raciste" juste parce qu'il y a des femmes noires dans cette partie de la vidéo. Il y a de nombreux Afro-Américains dans son clip et dans beaucoup d'autres de ses clips, donc si vous la traitez de raciste, vous avez besoin de vous déconnecter. Elle faisait l'éloge des gens qui dansent et qui apprécient la musique dans son clip, et il y a une grande variété de femmes Noires qui twerkent. Est-ce que ça vous paraîtrait censé si Taylor avait demandé à une centaine de filles blanches d'essayer de twerker ? Dans tous les cas, vous seriez sans doute encore en train de la juger et de critiquer. Mais la traiter de raciste est le seul truc que je ne tolère pas, parce qu'elle ne l'est pas.

D'autres ont invoqué le refrain « haters gonna hate » du morceau :

OK IF YOURE CALLING TAYLOR SWIFT RACIST BECAUSE SHE HAS PEOPLE TWERKING IN HER VIDEO ITS OBVIOUS YOURE JUST TRYING TO FIND A REASON TO HATE

Taylor Swift is making fun of herself in her new video. If you've ever said, "I'm offended by a TS video." ...Reexamine your priorities.
