Shouts to the Purple Kush,
I was on twitter, early evening 2 days ago and noticed a trend regarding Slim Thug and some statements he'd made to Starrene Rhett, regarding Black Women, Slim Thug's Blog via Vibe.com! Read this before you continue!
Ok, so we have to talk about this for at least a minute. Houston's Boss Hog Thugga is sayin' that we all need to step it up in general with respect to our ways of thinking, especially regarding the standards we put against each other as black men and women. He even goes as far as to refer to white women as being generally more submissive, less materialistic and typically more willing to cook and clean, glorifying these qualities that make up the "best" relationship partners, at least for him.
The high maintenance "housewife"shit needs to stop, especially seeing as many of these standards are kept in low income relationships. Why the fuck are you trying to get a shopping spree out of somebody with one pair of sneakers? I agree with Slim Thug to a degree, black women need to step off the part of our recent culture that expects every man to have certain assets to be qualified to date them. Its only right to have HIGH STANDARDS, however, the main base of these standards can't always be MONETARY. Furthermore, I have to agree that my general conclusion of the argument of black contemporary woman vs. the old-fashioned black woman is; that the contemporary woman asks for more and expects to have less obligations than they used to, less of that ride or die kinda girl. Everybody can't live rich!
I just wanted to drop that gem for those of us that want to argue this, because I'm more than open to doing so. The uproar this shit caused is healthy and I think anybody offended or excited by what Slim Thug was saying should become a FAN of his, just to promote HEALTHY CONTROVERSY! I'd rather have somebody say something that's offensive, but somewhat thought out, to stir up some buzz. It'd be a lot better than this "so and so got punched" bullshit that I try to draw some kind of entertainment from, as i try to get the time back that i wasted reading about it...
