Beyoncé released a surprise music video, "Formation" today with enough shades of racial discussion to fill up a professor's lecture notes. The video shows shots of B on top of sinking New Orleans roofs representing the Hurricane Katrina aftermath and in all different make ups of stereotyped black women. The lyrics shoot with the fiery attitude that is Queen B - "I slay" is just one repeated lyric that weighs so heavy it crushes any haters hanging under her stilettos. B seems to sing about owning her black self from her features to history, even if the media mocks the stereotype. What your interpretation of the video and song is up to you: I dare say, pretty sure that's her point.
