She said it best. Disrespecting what we create. Straight up culture vultures...
Good job Melissa...
‘Harlem Shake’ gets miners fired
The "Harlem Shake" has not been welcome everywhere. Up to 15 miners in Australia were fired after they put a video on the Web of eight men performing the dance craze deep underground, according to the Australian newspaper The West.
What got the miners in trouble? Some had removed their protective gear for the video.
The Australian paper reported that the mining company Barminco canned the six-figure salary workers and banned them from working at any of their projects around the globe. One of the ousted workers complained that the company had overreacted, saying dancing miners were just "having a bit of fun."
I don't see anything wrong with the harlem shake....i think its hilarious..
I understand safety is important, but the workers shouldn't've been fired,...maybe reprimanded or whateva, but not fired.
Good point MsVeraisblessed, I tend to agree with your reasoning on the firing. Not only does the dance demonstrate our trible African roots, but its very difficult for outsiders to copy
Peace In my Friend,
