Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg Calls Out Pop Stars' Use of Black Culture

Hunger Games' Amandla Stenberg Calls Out Pop Stars' Use of Black Culture

Amandla Stenberg recently posted a Tumblr video criticizing some of the biggest pop stars as part of a history assignment!

“[In the 2010s], pop stars and icons adopted black culture as a way of being edgy and gaining attention,” the 16-year-old Hunger Games actress said. “In 2013, Miley Cyrus twerks and uses black women as props, and then in 2014, in one of her videos called ‘This Is How We Do,’ Katy Perry uses Ebonics and hand gestures and eats watermelons while wearing cornrows before cutting inexplicably to a picture of Aretha Franklin. So as you can see, cultural appropriation was rampant.”

She added, “I’ve been seeing this question a lot on social media, and I think it’s really relevant: ‘What would America be like if we loved black people as much as we love black culture?’”
