white girls are having a crisis, y’all.
White folks need to leave AAVE alone.
It’s clear they have no idea what they are saying or why they are saying
what does that waffle have to do with being basic
they have no idea what they are talking about or what it means to be basic.
As per usual, white folks take something meant for them
try to use it on their terms
an fail horribly.
wait…I know why this happened.
Remember when cosmo posted pictures of Kendall Jenner in that bathrobe and shower shoes outfit and we called her basic as hell
This is why it happened.
If you can read that, and see that, first know its not “the internet ’ calling basic white girls basic. It’s black women and other women of color that are tired of ordinary looking, unskilled, mediocre white women being overly represented while stealing black culture (like you did via appropriating AAVE) while we have to litterally hunt through magazine, TV shows, catwalks and movies for a black woman that looks like us.
You want to stop being basic, stop appropriating. Stop celebrating the same stock images of white women and start putting easily identifiable black women in your magazines and on your covers on a regular basis.
I cannot believe you would write and article about this shit and not even begin to address why we would call them that.
DO you even have black writers? FAIL
I had no idea using a basic word in the english language as an insult was “stealing black culture”
If you honestly squeal like scalded cats over someone else using the word “basic” as an insult and claim your culture is being stolen, then honey, it’s not the white woman whose having an identity crisis.
