To me this was the most powerful part of the entire song/video and just summed up what she was trying to capture in Shake It Off. This is sososo important because this isnt only aimed at her haters, but for her fans and everyone listening, to celebrate individuality and dismiss the haters like Taylor. Like the emotion in her face is so surreal & captures the message shes trying to convey basically.

I’m not even a man but I’m a black woman and I’ve experienced this on the subway, elevators, etc. And I ALWAYS want to do that “boo!” Part.

OMG

As understandable as this is, a woman probably clutches her purse for several reasons and race probably isn’t at the top of that. This woman is clutching her purse out of fear because a.) you’re a man, and she’s probably had some experience with men and or thieves harassing her or b.) because it’s been a long day and she’s tired of whatever shit might happen to her while in an elevator. Don’t assume that just because she’s clutching her purse, it’s immediately a race issue (don’t rule it out, but don’t be so quick to assume it’s the prime reason)

Yes you made an exellent point and I was thinking this. As a woman (a young one) I get incredibly frightened just being in an enclosed space with someone who I know could easily over power me. It might not be a simple matter of race. When I analyze a person I might clutch my purse tighter simply because their posture is threatening, or they are much larger than me. If it does happen more often with black men it could also have something to do with the fact that many POC men are taller and more built (not saying ALL I’m saying a high percentage). This could have a lot to do with how people (women mostly) react. Also your facial expression can say a lot. If you walk in an elevator with an easy smile and a polite ‘hello’ you’re probably less likely to seem like a threat. And finally your presentation. If you’re wearing a suit and looking professional you’ll get less of these responses. Now if you’re wearing gold chains, a snap back and pants to the floor and it looks like you haven’t showered in 3 days you’re going to get a more drastic response whether you want to or not. (I’m talking all races here, I usually am a lot more threatened around this type of dress for hundreds of reasons I don’t care to name. Race definitely can be apart of the issue, but I highly doubt that it’s the entire thing.
