Glory is back and has to try to figure out how to work her side of the tech in New York, and she lets us know… it’s still crazy. Just what’s across the street from Glory that is a cold rude awakening to make every day count? The Cheetah Girls are having a reunion, but maybe not after their Instagram Live where two of the members dropped some Tea about one of the other members. Insecure is back! We discuss how these ladies are our best friends, but now that we’re in season 4 are they just phoning it in? Did you have to Square Dance in High School? Why is Square dancing the ultimate virus there doesn’t seem to be a cure for? The answer might not be Henry Ford (though he may have helped) but a much older American pastime: racism. Just how did it succeed in becoming the National folk dance in the 80s? And just like anything crafted in the US, did Black folks have a hand it making it what it was, and in turn recieve no credit? They don’t call it whitewashing for nothing- and no- that’s not a Square Dancing call.
America’s wholesome square dancing tradition is a tool of white supremacy
Thanks to Twitter user @elliotjunkyard for inspiring this weeks topic of Square Dancing!
