Florence + The Machine - No Light No Light Video Controversy


Ok so... I can understand where the problem comes in. The whole blackface thing. Me, being not black, really have no say to wether its offensive or not, because it can't really offend me. I can be offended for someone and see how it can be offensive, but I am not offended personally by it. Honestly if I had never read about it, I probably would not have found a problem with this. I would've just said it was a boring white people video with no hoes and/or ice involved lol but again maybe its because it doesn't offend me and hit a chord. BUT! I don't think it was necessarily black face, just someone who was painted black. I feel like black face is with intent to mock or portray african americans in a stereotypical and negative light. But! Art is art and it will offend some people... It all lies in intent and stuff. But check it out for yourself and leave your thoughts below!
