In the opening lines of the second verse, Swift sings about how she and her friends “used to play a game where/We would pick a decade/We wished we could live in instead of this.”But the line about the 1830s has raised a lot of eyebrows especially among Black people, who pointed out that slavery was still legal during that time. Women also didn’t have the right to vote and it was an era marred by many health pandemics including influenza and cholera.Kiki Rae Real, an anti-racism education content creator, argued how we define racism nowadays was not applicable in the 1830s when even “[slavery] abolitionists of that time were not exempt from anti-black views.”
