Retta Loves Classical Music, Doesn’t Love Racist Assumptions about her Musical Taste

My friend Hillary posted this excerpt from the Conan show on her Facebook today.  In it, Parks and Recreation actress Retta explains that she loves classical music and belts out some Vivaldi.

Now, I’m a white girl.  I have never been victim of racism, but I do know that assuming that a woman who looks like Retta would be a fan of Hip-Hop is capital-R Racist.  And I just love the way she shuts the haters down.  It’s Vivaldi, bitch!
