Vexed by the VMA’s, The Morning After

I knew that I was in store for below mediocre performances and a medley of “politically correct” and not-so-politically correct behavior that both manage to offend anyone who is remotely racially conscious. With that said, the VMAs displayed consistently problematic behavior. This is not surprising as popular culture houses societal anxieties and perpetuates them as “entertainment.” While laughter and smiles are certainly good things, they are not positive if they are at the expense of racial cognizance.
