One of the main reasons you can so easily laugh at the idea that Barbados is a place full of sluts is that you know that Barbados is a land of black people. Part of how you know that is that their most famous celebrity is Rihanna, a black woman. You also know that Barbados is part of the Caribbean and that other islands in the Caribbean, like Jamaica (which appears much more often in the US cultural imagination than Barbados does), are overwhelmingly populated by black people.
The reason that black people have been oversexualized in our culture and the reason that Barbados is today 90% black is the same reason: the history of slavery. (yeah, shit just got heavy)
“I’d say the greatest success that I’ve had in my life is that I never have to be around assholes anymore; that’s better than rich. And rich just means you can just afford any book you want without looking at the price. That, to me, is rich.”—John Waters (via good-dogwood)
