Wow, then why are we not critically talking about Beyonce colluding in the deconstruction of herself as a slave, instead of being hung up on "sensationalism, and "Hyperbole". Again we must be reminded that the function behind using rhetorical devices is to emphasize a point. And that the point is the core issue that should be discussed. The point that I hear is, ya know...look at all of the multi-formed, multi-dimensional and destructive patterns and actions Imperialist, White Supremacist, Capitalist, Patriarchy has taken on deep within all of us, in this case, the way in which this "powerful" wealthy black women can participate, in a sense, in her own objectification as a women along with the objectification of other women, particularly younger black women--through her role in media as a top celebrity...ya know...with how she portrays woman-hood. I see her long blond hair, body bared along with the whitening of her image as a powerful representation of white supremacy and patriarchy. Obviously chosen and decided by many different handlers including her who are also complicit with white supremacy and patriarchy. And i recognize how difficult it is for many of us to truly acknowledge that and our investments in "The master's house", or for me, Supremacy in general. I think, bell is truly attempting to call us awake from the fantasy of believing that we can shape our liberation through or with the same apparatuses that has enslaved us, because it doesn't work, and that we must truly love and really work for justice, more than our work for wealth, fame, money, or identities, to have REAL liberation! and ya know, work for Justice isn't about the praise, it's about the planet, it's about it's species, and it's about it's people!
