Is The New Harlem Shake Disrespectful to Harlem?


The Harlem Shake internet dance craze is a far cry from the original dance developed in Harlem in the 1980s. Is the internet meme a disrespect to Harlem residents and culture? Does it speak to a deeper issue about race relations and culture clash in America? As Shantell says: ” I can definitely understand how residents can take offense. It goes way back to the long history of whites profiting off blacks.”
