You may or may not have heard, but Beyoncé turned black last weekend. Yep, you heard it right. Having released her new song, Formation, the day before the Superbowl people literally lost their shit. Amongst other things, the song, and her subsequent Superbowl performance were a ‘slap in the face to law enforcement’ for being ‘too’ pro-African American rights. Right.
