"trapped...", shot, and an attempt to "kill whiteness"

I missed most of the VMA's last night, but I was able to catch the single man opus that was R Kelly's "Trapped in the Closet" performance. It was an intense performance, with R Kelly dramatically performing the roles of all of the cast members. "Rufus! Cathy! Chuck! Rufus! Kathy! Chuck!" I'm sure it'll be on constant repeat this week, so we can all be a witness to this performance by one of the most misunderstood living musical genius of our time.

I was also able to catch Common's seemingly nervous freestyle, but I did miss Kanyeezy's performance, which I heard good things about. It's too bad that such a positive (although ego-maniacal) cat, like Kanye had to have a negativity hit his party, with Suge Knight being shot.

On some more serious discussion, these "Kill Whitey" party sound like another Macon Detornay event gone bad, but with the attempt to acknowledge white privilege being replaced completely with the greatly offensive performance of black face by white kids. These parties consist of white hipsters listening to a slew of Miami Booty Bass, shaking their asses, like how "black people do it." The idea that these parties are an attempt for comedic display and poking fun of whiteness would be all good, if there appropriation of black culture were not so blatant. Unfortunately, this isn't just an east coast phenomenon; "White Out" parties have apparently taken place in the Bay Area. Peep the discussions over at Poplicks.
