Slim Thug’s Seal of Approval

I wish I knew where to begin, but I don’t. I’m not going to focus too much on the “black women are terrible and need to sacrifice their lives on the bloody  cross of Jesus for any nigga available” rhetoric because frankly, it’s a dead horse that I simply I don’t feel like beating. Besides, Professor Marc Lamont Hill did a decent job of checking “Dim Thug”. Thug actually had the nerve to respond to Dr. Hill by stating that they are different men in different industries and therefore, they meet  “different types of women”. However,  in his initial interview he praises his mulatto girlfriend for being smart and non-gold-diggerish like the Black women who don’t want to be slaves to their husbands. His mulatto broad cooks and cleans and shuts the fuck up and never asks for money. Dim Thug attributes her stellar feminine behavior to “the White in her“:

My girl is Black and White. I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the shit that I say, so we make it. She just takes care of me and I like that. She don’t be begging and I don’t gotta buy her all this crazy ass shit.

Guess what school he claims his obedient girlfriend went to? Columbia University. The same institution that happens to employ Dr. Lamont Hill. Now why on earth would she date slim thug if, by his admission, she is basically out of his class?

Pay attention:

Black people, especially Black men, fetishize mulatto women. Mulattos, especially mulatto women, know this-and will welcome it with open arms if it privileges them.

PERIOD.

People generally do NOT turn down undue advantage. People generally do NOT surrender the possibility of an easy or easier life for racial solidarity or sisterhood. This is why White feminism has failed to appeal to most women of color for over a hundred years. And the mulatto (ambiguous looking) woman is in an interesting place here, because some are in a position to manipulate their identities. So when non-biracial Black women note that they are privileged, they are called jealous and hateful. But when a Black man basically states that a mulatto woman has inherited superiority through white lineage, the world sort of ignores the implication of that statement. The fervor surrounding Slim’s statements focused on his hate for Black women, but the colorist angle-the implications about mulatto-ness- was virtually dismissed by everyone. Including Black female bloggers. I’m surprised by this.

As I stated in my earlier post about the position of Mulatto women in the Black community, it is her Whiteness that gives her value and her Blackness that makes her inferior to the White women his brother is fortunate enough to encounter. Slim thug essentially says that mulatto and white women are worthy of “positive stereotyping” (though any feminist will contests the classification of his rant as white/mulatto positive). Kola Boof (love her or hate her) speaks the ABSOLUTE TRUTH on this-with far less apprehension. We live in a patriarchal society that privileges women who meet stereotypical feminine ideals. And regardless of the anti-feminist ideology, a part of that privilege includes the RIGHT TO WANT MEN WITH STATUS WITHOUT BEING MALIGNED FOR IT. It includes THE RIGHT to leverage your “beauty”/appearance for social and economic gain. Click on the Kola link to read a much better essay on that fact.

Despite the blatant objectification of his girlfriend’s race by Slim Thug, I would bet my life the girl will “ride or die” with him. I bet she won’t take offense to what his statements imply about her or her even her naturally dim-witted and docile mother. Why?

He may claim she doesn’t ask for anything, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t actually GETTING anything.

  1. Keep up the good work. The mutts are already latching on to this blog. They must know not all Blacks covet and exalt their existence…no reason too. See this link here by the former mulattokid…aka Zack (Zachary Shelton – half jewish/black and abandoned by his father). He was kicked out of a university in Calfornia for his racist rants and I have archived a trunkload of his mad ravings to pass along: http://thestudyofracialism.org/about7197.html

  2. tragicmulattos,

    “Guess what school he claims his obedient girlfriend went to? Columbia University. The same institution that happens to employ Dr. Lamont Hill. Now why on earth would she date slim thug if, by his admission, she is basically out of his class?”

    I was wondering that too. I was going to call my Columbia grad friends to see if they knew her so they could talk some sense into her.

    But then I remembered that Columbia is a university with many schools. Ms. mulatto here could’ve went to Columbia University School of General Studies part-time and got a degree in photography (which helps Fat Thug and herself to take such stunning cameraphone photos for twitter).

    “Pay attention:

    Black people, especially Black men, fetishize mulatto women. Mulattos, especially mulatto women, know this-and will welcome it with open arms if it privileges them.”

    I’ve known this since I could talk. Literally. And I think it’s pathetic. Self-hate runs rampant.

    “The fervor surrounding Slim’s statements focused on his hate for Black women, but the colorist angle-the implications about mulatto-ness- was virtually dismissed by everyone. Including Black female bloggers. I’m surprised by this.”

    I noted it, but didn’t mention it while discussing this on another blog. Because I thought it was old news to everyone that some black men would cut off their right arm for a mulatto or mixed woman.

    “Kola Boof (love her or hate her) speaks the ABSOLUTE TRUTH on this-with far less apprehension.”

    Kola speaks the truth and nothing but.

  4. Good post!

    I believe 90% of Black people world wide suffer from a severe case of self hatred, and Black men appearently suffer more than women. I have no idea why that is, but it goes to show all this fake macho bullshit you see daily on the streets and rap videos are just that:fake!I have come to the conclusion that most Black men actually want to be WHITE MEN, or at least look like them! That is why they choose women who are as close to European looking as their options allow! That is why I encourage, Black women to stop being so damn angry about so call racism and racial profiling of police vs. Black men! Don’t Black men racially profile black women every day? Why is it ok for a Black man to have a “preference” for Blonds and White people NOT to have a “preference” to live next to, date and go to exclusively White schools with their own people? Why is one racism and the other one not? Black skin and hair (and people) have always been considered inferior because first and foremost Black people believe in their own inferiority! slim thugs brother children with his “white girls” will eventually come to resent him. They will resent they are not considered as beautiful smart and worthy of marriage as their pure white mother. This is already beginning. These tragic mulattos you are speaking of are the children of self hating black men that were scorned by whites b/c white people don’t have an inferiority complex and therefor naturally feel FULL white is better than PART white.

  5. FWIW I, for one, work a crap job in a crap town and just this morning called my mother crying because some man thought because I happen to be one of those fetishized women, that I can be bought and would gladly leverage my “privilege” for money and status. Not all of us react with “open arms” even when it would be Very Beneficial. There are MANY of us who wish with all our hearts that men didn’t think this way, because it reduces us to the status of objects and we fear that we will never find a black man to LOVE us, because so many seem caught up with what we are instead of who we are.
