How is Lana Del Rey Racists?

(I hope you’re being serious) 

Well, first and foremost, her stage names is appropriative as fuck, her real name being, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant. She uses the otherness of Hispanic Ethnicities to add “allure” and “drama” and “mystery” to her music persona. 

Adopting a name of another ethnicity without having to deal with the fallout of being said ethnicity is appropriative.

And secondly, the inappropriate usage of Native headdresses. Playing into that stupid white-girl-in-a-wheat-field meme that has been dissected so many times that unless you were actively not paying attention, it would be impossible to not know that wearing a headdress out of context is incredibly inappropriate and racist..appropriative.

Hope I answered your question!
