Different expectations in the African American culture?

Willow Smith has a video called Whip My Hair. She is nine years old. Is this okay because she is African American? Caucasian kids get flamed for this kind of dancing. Example being the dance team of 7 year old girls... remember?

  • OMG! If I had a DD I would NEVER let her dance like that at that age. I will say that it was a good dance....for a music video if they were 20 but not 7! That is just crazy...I dont care what race someone is that is just not right......the sad part is dancing just keeps getting worse and kids are dancing like that so much younger now....

  • Bristol Palin become an unwed mom as a teen. She is now being considered to be a role model for other young girls, to say no to sex.. Is this okay because she is White? African American girls get flamed and get called welfare queens and ghetto trash for this kind of behavior.

  • I just saw it now on youtube. But thanks for the link. There is no comparison at all. I was thinking I'd see her in revealing clothes doing dirty dancing but I did not. You can't compare apples to oranges.
