I hate this era. I hate this timeline. I wish some people would have more self-awareness, or just a general sense of what is and is not appropriate. So it is Madonna, who decided to do *something* about the situation in Minneapolis, the killing of George Floyd and the massive racial injustice that still exists in this country. What did Madonna do? She filmed her son David Banda dancing to a Michael Jackson song. To end racism.

I mean… David Banda is only 14 years old. Don’t yell at him. He’s just doing his thing and he’s a kid and he obviously loves to dance. I blame Madonna for posting it, honestly. She did it for attention for herself and her son.

Nobody asked Madonna to weigh in today. Not a soul.
