Beyonce – Unapologetically Black


“My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana / You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bamma / I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros / I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils / Earned all this money but they never take the country out me / I got hot sauce in my bag, swag.”

As a nod to the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panthers,Beyoncé emerged (in a Michael Jackson-inspired outfit) with a virtual battalion of beret-clad dancers who, true to the song’s title, performed a flawlessly syncopated routine in unison. The song and its incendiary video have been hailed as a call to arms for black women and activists, and a rebuke of the so-called politics of responsibility.

This performance and video has been disputed by many as ‘politely racially charged’. However we applaud Beyonce for taking on the issue of police brutality and racial discrimination on the largest televised platform of the year, the 50th Annual Super Bowl. Love Beyonce or hate her (and for the record we love her and her beautiful Black family) she left the world talking and debating about everything from the Black Panthers to the Black Lives Matter movement.
