"AGATHA PRENDERGHAST OF HIS MAJESTY’S PROVINCE OF MASSACHUSETTS, ON THIS DAY, YOU HAVE BEEN ARRAIGNED FOR CRIMES OF WITCHCRAFT. WITNESSED BY THOSE WHOSE TESTIMONIES HAVE BEEN HEARD. YOU HAVE, BY THIS COURT, BEEN FOUND GUILTY. AND IT HAS PASSED UNTO YOU, ACCORDING TO YOUR GRIEVOUS SINS, THE SENTENCE OF EXECUTION!"
This semester I went to the White Privilege Conference in Madison, WI for my honors seminar about examining privilege. I made a poster about the behaviors of particular white female musicians who appropriate other cultures as a means of identity and sexualize/objectify WOC as a means of displaying sexual agency and social power. All under the guise of “empowerment”.
This is my take on the knowledge I found through seminar and readings, (esp. online articles) so in no way do I claim these ideas or concepts as my own.
