Well known activist and the host of the “Pod Save the People” Podcast DeRay McKesson took it upon himself to sit down with Katy Perry to discuss the necessary conversation of white privilege and cultural appropriation. Katy Perry has been at the forefront of these topics as of late for her questionable actions and motives with Migos.

The conversation DeRay had with Katy Perry allowed her to explain herself, and take accountability for some of the mistakes she had made in the past with her career decisions.

 

“I listened and I heard and I didn’t know,” she said. “I won’t ever understand some of those things because of who I am. I will never understand, but I can educate myself, and that’s what I’m trying to do along the way.”

Katy Perry explained her music video looks that may have struck a negative chord with the black community. For what it’s worth, the two had a candid conversation that cleared the air, but not everyone on social media saw this as the proper forum or method to resolve this monumental issue.

 

With a lot of people having their own platforms that seem to be spilling into the mainstream these days, there’s a thin line that is being crossed daily. There are some things at work right now in the country that are being addressed in an underwhelming manner. The importance of the black plight isn’t being addressed in the proper manner. With that said, we will be keeping a vigilant eye on these stories and holding all parties involved accountable.
