Romanticising Colonial Rule? Psssh, in your Wildest Dreams!

A few days ago a good friend of mine posted an article onto my Facebook page that accused Taylor Swift of romanticising African colonial rule in her most recent music video, “Wildest Dreams”. Her video was set against the backdrop of a non-specified African country in the 1920’s era and whilst it featured some dubiously photo-shopped prominent members of the African wildlife family, the big outcry with the whole video (according to the article) was that it didn’t feature one African person in it. *gasps & clutches at my non-existent-pearl necklace*
