Jing-mei expresses, “Soon after my mother got this idea about Shirley Temple, she took me to a beauty training student in the Mission district and put me in the hands of a student who could barely hold the scissors without shaking. Instead of big fat curls, I emerged with an uneven mass of crinkly black fuzz” (Tan 221).

Black Lives Matter is a subject that has been controversial in the nation. Macklemore uses this as an example in his song in order to express how since he is white he cannot speak out because he is privileged. He has never faced brutality or knows how it feels to be in the shoes of an African American person. In the article by Stuart Hall he states, “Any sound, word, image or object which functions as a sign, and is organized with other signs into a system which is capable of carrying and expressing meanings is, from this point of view, ‘a language’” (Hall 5).
