Alicia Keys Addresses Interracial Dating In “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)”

Alicia Keys‘ new music video for “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)” addresses the heavy topic of interracial dating throughout the decades. I like the video, actually, because it shows how bigotry doesn’t necessarily disappear with time. But over at Feministing, our friend Courtney M. Martin — who’s also a Frisky contributor — is unimpressed. Martin found the “white dude in a truck and a bunch of angry black men” motif annoying, accusing Keys’ video of “fall[ing] into all of the tired stereotypes of the tragic interracial love story.”

Surely interracial dating is a complicated issue to deal with in a five minute-long music video, but maybe Alicia Keys could have been more original. What do you think? [Feministing]
