Have you heard this young lady, Lorde, on the radio? Yesterday the New York Times posted a review of her recent performance at Webster Hall, and I’m kind of at a loss about the way that her big hit, Royals, is being talked about in some circles. Now I’m a feminist, but since I've limited my internet access (due to financial constraints) I hadn't seen this blog: http://feministing.com/2013/10/03/wow-that-lorde-song-royals-is-racist/While I love a good critique of the sexist and racist lyrics in much pop music, this blog is not one; in fact, it is deeply racist. Because we all know who Veronica’s thinking when we’re talking golf. So why shit on New Zealand Māori? Why shit New Zealander's of Korean decent? New Zealand's top golfers are Michael Campbell (Māori), Danny Lee (NZ of Korean decent) and Lydia Ko (16 year old NZ woman of Korean decent).Sometimes bloggers don't bother to take the time to think critically about the sexist and racial accusations of their blogs – and sometimes they're guilty of what they accuse. Veronica apparently calls herself a feminist – let’s just hope her feminism gets a lot less racist as she develops as a blogger.
