Well I finally found people playing black avs in Second Life. The problem is they are playing Miley Cyrus concepts of blacks.
This place was actually a top destination in Second Life. At first I figured it was kind of cool to see black music and culture being mimicked like this. But after a few minutes Soul Vibrations Dance club looked like a collect sambo minstrel show, a sad parody of black culture. But then again maybe this is what empowering looks like. As a white academic who has studies in Chicago and London I have prejudices about the liberated ancestors of slaves. Perhaps my desire for serious Malcomn X figures is itself a kind of racism.
Second Life, as it matures and becomes kind of sick actually gets a bit more interesting all the time.
