Given that James Madison refused to free any of his 100 slaves it is patently poetic justice that his prized possession is played at the Grammys by Lizzo

The objection was over the twerking.

I'm objecting to the fact that the flute isn't literally made of crystal jk.

Gotta love that cartoon. So perfectly sums up the racist's reactions.

Even Diddy found Lizzo's twerking inappropriate at another function and stopped her. Diddy the racist. If Lizzo was white everybody would've been okay with it. Perpetual 1970s.

I have to admit seeing Lizzo twerk is not my cup of tea either but you gotta admit she's a talented flutist.

According to Lizzo in an interview clip I saw, twerking and skimpy outfits are her trademark thing, so it should have been expected.

And also doing those things while female, fat, and black.

Other celebrities would be cheered for twerking. Can't say I blame her for doing her thing and challenging societal norms & body acceptance, really. That's why people cheer her on for being her authentic self even if some people would prefer a different aesthetic of human twerk in their general direction.

The desperation of the woke to call anything and everything racist is palpable.

Anyways, facts is there wouldn’t be an uproar from the political right if Lizzo looked like this:

I don't know how James, a quiet reserved, maybe Aspie sort, managed to find Dolley, who was smart, flamboyant, extraverted---the "Belle of the Ball," so to speak.

Yep....for all those who think tall men have all the influence.....James Madison was about 5 foot 4, and weighed 100 pounds. He is called "The Father of the Constitution."
