happy snake
ty op for making this post. i was so ticked off about this. what pissed me off even more is how many people didn't see anything wrong with it. yes, the samba (a brazilian dance) has west african roots...does that excuse the cheap stereotypes that derek and mark went with?

and someone on twop tried to defend it by saying that the russian and ukrainian dancers on the show were culturally appropriating redneck culture during country week. that person fails at life.

eta: let's not forget that this isn't the first time that derek's been a culturally appropriating ass. remember his bollywood samba with maria?
