Actress Blake Lively was the target of racists after the actress posted an Instagram picture of her curves on Instagram. According to these leftists, it’s racist for a white woman to have a big butt.
Her comment, “L.A. face with an Oakland Booty” references Sir Mix-A-Lot’s popular 90s song, “Baby Got Back.” The race police took this as an invitation to spew all kinds of vile hate and nasty attacks at her.
Another day, another rich white woman using WOC's bodies as a punchline and commodity. As if Blake Lively wasn't the worst already.

It got a lot worse than that. Many were saying this was cultural appropriation. Apparently being white and having a big butt is ripping off black culture. I am Italian and I don’t get offended when people who aren’t Italian eat pizza. What is the problem here?
The mudslinging got so bad that Sir Mix-A-Lot issued a statement. The big butt police are not going to like what he said.
“That song was written with African-American women in mind, but trust me, there are white women with those curves everywhere, and they were once considered fat. And that’s what the song was about. It wasn’t about some race battle… Now at the same time, what was promoted as beautiful was kind of really waif-thin, borderline heroin addicts…. That was kind of pushed at us, and we were told that it was beautiful… So I wrote “Baby Got Back,” not to say which race is prettier — which is silly, because there were white women with the same curves that were told that they were fat, too.”
“What I meant by “L.A.” was Hollywood. In other words, makeup or whatever it took to make that face look good, they do it in L.A. But, as much as you can throw makeup on something, you can’t make up the butt. That’s what L.A. face and Oakland booty meant. You can put makeup on that face and make it look beautiful, but a butt is a butt, a body is a body.”
Can we please stop characterizing people? I swear this country is so much more divided and hostile since Obama has become president. He was supposed to be the post racial president, but it’s been the complete opposite. Just let us be Americans and drop the hyphens.
Please share this if you are fed with the PC Police calling everyone a racist!
