Refining Ratchetness /////// the Whitest Side-Chik investigates her Hipster Racism




I’m cruising Gawker to find stuff on Alt Lit and Tao Lin being a Rapist when I come across On the Glorification of the Side-Chick by Robin M Boylorn and think - Glorified Side-Chik! That’s me!  

Then here’s the first line

I'm a blackgirl, a blackgirl connoisseur of ratchetness, a blackgirl fascinated by media representations of other blackgirls, a blackgirl who cares deeply about the connection between ratchetness, representation, and lived experience.

My Highlight. Robin Boylorn defining herself as Author well-positioned to comment on the Glorified Side-Chick Cultural Phenomenon through a Lens of Racialized Socioeconomics and I think - Ratchetness (?????)

Ratchet: Urban Black American Slang = "Undesirable, coarse woman" comes from “Wretched” as in “man, his side-chick is ratchet




Begs the Question - to be addressed in this Essay - how can you be a “Connoisseur of Ratcheness”? Isn’t that like - a Contradiction? The Academic Ghetto-Black equivalent of a Drop-out White Hipster-Gentrifier into “Branded Authenticity”? ( aren’t they all )


White People be like - I like this Shirt lets you know I'm Trendily Racist
this meanwhile is a Side-Boi

Ratchetness - Inner-Urban Black Wretchedness-as-Vanity taken to the Level of of Compliment in inteLlectual Discussion, like the inVersion of Hipster which is being so White and Pretentious you don’t realize your Cultural Appropriation of Black People is White and Pretentious. I either have as Much Ratchetness as Rural White can or am as Far from Ratchet Urban Black American Side-Chik as Hipster Rural White Canadian Mistress can be it’s Hard to tell with All these Shades of Beige.



Robin Boylorn article makes these distinctions between a Classy White ‘Mistress’ and a Ratchet Black ‘Side-Chick’ on American TV

so-called side chick phenomenon is nothing new, the language/slang repackages infidelity as something black folk invented, therefore making it more tawdry and scandalous. White women who have affairs with married men are called mistresses. Women of color who have sex with men in relationships are called side chicks. Mistresses are taken care of, taken out, splurged on, and at times prioritized above the wife. Side chicks are secrets, limited to booty calls and late night texts, and are expected to play their position (never interfering with a man's "real" relationship). There is usually one mistress, but a side chick is generally one of several. These race-based distinctions contribute to ongoing slights towards black women. Mistresses are white and upper-class and therefore redeemable. Side chicks are poor and of color and are therefore viewed as thirsty, grimy, low down, gold-digging whores who actively pursue somebody else's man.

which is True - none of the Old Rich White Men who like to Xtra-Marital Andrea Coates are going to refer to her as a ‘Side-Chik’ that would be insulting to them and when I say I’m a ‘Glorified Side-Chik’ that’s me being Facetious to insult the Fancy White Men by implying they are no Better than a Black Hood with a Pretty Young Thing he visits on Sunday Mornings while his Wife is at Church, which is either a Great Equalizer ( hey! All Dudes Rich White Poor Black like a little Xtra Xtra now and then ) or a Reminder of Privilege ( Lucky you Mr McEwan because you’re the Whitest Guy I know you get a Mistress who writes Think Pieces on Ratchetness )

Of a White Woman. Other Color Women are too Easy.


Soap operas and primetime dramas have long glamorized the side chicks of powerful white men, making the side chick seem more exciting, loving and desirable than the wives at home, who were equally beautiful but played out. It seemed that as long as a man could "afford" two women (and upper-class men were generally white men), it was his prerogative, and not worthy of attention or appraisal. Working-class black men and the women they juggle (baby mamas, friends with bennies, main chicks), however, are seen as cultural taboos and degenerates with no self-esteem or shame. Further, upper-class black men (like Sean Combs, for example) are excused from harsh judgment because of their ability to financially support multiple women and children. On the flip side, independent black women who are financially secure have been (until the recent rise and reception of television shows to the contrary) largely left alone.

One of these Contemporary American TV-Shows offering us a Previously-non-Xistent Window into the Life of the Independent Black Woman who is Financially secure but also a Side-Chik(duh cause she’d like have to be right - White Women get to be Hilary Clinton ) is Scandal, starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a Washington DC ‘Gladiator’ who is the President’s Mistress(!) Here is Gil Laury at onyxtruth.com on Character Olivia Pope:


Dirty little Secrets? What Dirty little Secrets? Presidents have Mistresses? Presidents like Black Women? His Vaguely Xotic Mistress rules behind the President's Back? Oh America you so almost get it
What if - Monica Lewinky kept her Job? What Job was that?

At first glance when watching the show it appears to be a love story about 2 people who met each other later in life & one person [the President] realized he was married to the wrong woman [The 1st Lady].  Upon looking deeper & discovering the real Olivia Pope as she goes about through the rollercoaster ride of this love affair, Olivia Pope is really nothing more than your standard side chick.  As a matter of fact, she is the poster child of all side chicks.  As I described earlier, one of the only real benefits to being a side chick is receiving gifts.  In Olivia Pope’s circumstances, the best gift she has received from the President is the gift of unlimited power.  By sleeping with the most powerful man in the free world & both of them falling in love with each other all the while both understanding that their relationship will never progress to a true meaningful one beyond occasional creep sessions, Olivia Pope inherited power beyond her wildest imagination.  When I say power, I mean it in the literal sense.  Olivia Pope runs Washington DC in the shadows thanks to her solidifying her position as the premiere side chick.

Wow. Side-Chik runs Man Politics from Shadows through Xtra-Marital Sxual Liaisons is actually what I do but for the Whole World as World’s Greatest Whore from Canada keeps onLine Scandal Journal to pinkmail you with for my Amusement because why get a Job covering up People's Secrets when I could tell you a Story.  

President Schmezident I'm a Dominatrix Queen

back to Robin M Boylorn over at Gawker

The 21st century Jezebel, the side chick is the quintessential scapegoat in popular culture at the moment.  


This is the President - Quick - find us Convenient Scapegoat for the Collapse of American Global Supremacy. uh. Side-Chiks? Not Big enough! How about Canada that Place is Big and Convenient? How about COMBINE THE TWO. Everyone Canadian Side-Chiks are the New Islamic Terrorists!

Serious Synchronicity Jezebel! - is it Collective-unConsciously because of me? Side-Chik so Glorified she took over a Country where noThing More intereSting than Xtra-Marital Sx ever happens? on a Shadowy Blog? where I Open-Secretly plot 21-Century Political Course by bribing Men-of-Power with sadoMasochistic Love Affairs they are Sure to accept to save their Manly Reputations Once ACWJ hits Gawker-Vine? I think so Only Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope is Black and American and eMployed whereas I’m White and Canadian and playing Anarkik Gift Economy ( like Professional Puppet-Mistress does - believe me it’s Hard to hold down Salary when your Job is Occasional-fucking Presidents ) so, how Far have we come in Terms of being Racially Culturally and Sxually Inclusive?

Black Brown White Men Canadians Americans Mexicans 
they All have Side-Chiks in their Closets so why cant they get along?

Gil Laury at Onyx Truth:

it is probably a fair assumption to say that 2014 will spark a sort of revolution in which side chicks come out of the shadows to let their positions be known proudly & the main chick/wifey/wife will eventually begin to accept the reality that having a man that’s 100% devoted to them may become a thing of the past.

Indeed.

Before we go back to Ratchetness let’s talk about how it’s going to happen 2014’s Side-Chik emerges from interNetsMedia Shadows to take Place of Honor as 2015’s Professional Mistress or Courtesan and there’s a SocioPolitical rEvolution where the American President fucks the Canadian Queen or he’s not President Anymore. 


Olivia Pope/American President Xtra-Marital is Xemplary of


Traditional Mistress Complx - TMC is when Man-of-Power ( Mojo if we’re talking about Inner-Urban Blacks not Black Presidents ) is uninterested in leaving his Marriage because doing so would mean Loss of Social Prestige or living Alone or taking Multiple Wives but as Man-of-Power he harbours Cravings for More Sx-from-Women than Monogamous Marriage can accommodate so he chooses his Second Woman for her Ratchetness - therefore he doesn’t have to feel Bad about xploiting her for Sx then dumping her when she gets to the Nuisance Phase where she starts wanting a Complete Relationship and threatening to talk to his Wife or eMployer. TMC is different than when Married Man meets Other Woman has Affair and leaves Wife for Other Woman or ends Affair and goes back to Wife - that's a Mistake. and also different from Man keeps Multiple Wives - that's Polygamy. TMC is when Man is compelled to keep a Wife and One or More Women in Secondary Sx-Fetish Mistress Positions come ca -


It helps if you have TMC but are too Much the Pansy to come out about it to your Loved Ones to find a Candidate for Side-Chik who is known to be Mentally Ill whose Mental Illness you can blame for Any Rape Accusations or Attempted Blackmailings or Weblog eNtries about a Character who resembles you.

as everyone is aware little Girl you have a Vivid Imagination 
and are still Heartborken about my Son. 
hahaha. My Son is too Good for you.

but there xists anOther Mistress Complx gets Far Less Air-Time which I believe I am First to put Name to given I am Probably First Woman to point to her Sx-Worker Complx as being Byproduct of

Backwards Mistress Complx - BMC is when Man is hung-up-on/fetishizes/prioritizes Fantasy Mistress/Married-Man Dynamic with Lovers to Degree he will 
a) marry Wife so he can cheat on her 
b) marry Woman who is Prostitute because she is Prostitute treats him like John rather than Husband ( as opposed to marrying Prostitute so he can save her from herSelf/Pimps by turning her into Wife which is Whole Other Sxist Romantic Complx ) 
c) Primarily or Compulsively visit Favorited Sx-Workers at Xpense of Other Intimate Relationships

How to tell if your Man has Backwards Mistress Complx -
 
he's been visiting the Same Prostitute since he lost his Virginity

My Debut Novel S.iS1 tells the Story - my Story - of White Middle-Class Teenage Girl whose involvement with Neighbor Boy with Backwards Mistress Complx results in her becoming HigheNd Prostitute. Investigations of VICE Media led to my Conclusion Traditionally-Married CEO Shane Smith has Backwards Mistress Complx he is satiating through his Media Brand’s Obsession with Sx-Worker/Girl-Writers like me.

Or - 

He's spent Years covering Women look like his Wife in his Vice Magazine but his Wife has Never appeared on his Vice Magazine so what's his Vice?

Traditional Mistress Complx Power Hierarchy formed as Such:

  1. Man - he gets Multiple Lovers and is viewed as Sxually-Attractive
  2. Wife - she gets Man’s Commitment but is viewed as Sxually-Played-out
  3. Mistress - she is viewed as Sxually-Attractive but not worth committing to

Backwards Mistress Complx Power Hierarchy formed as Such:

  1. Mistress - she is Professional Sx-Worker
  2. Man - he can Only be in Love with Professional Sx-Worker which is eMbarrassing for him cause he has to share her with Other Men to get off to her - he's a Cuckold
  3. Wife - she is kept on by Man insofar as he is allowed to visit Coveted Sx-Worker ie she herself to the Xtent she is Self-Aware as Wife of Man with BMC is Professional Sx-Worker married to Man cause he pays her False Front of Traditional Marriage

so while Ethical Man with TMC should find Wife doesn’t mind him keeping Side-Chik & Side-Chik doesn’t mind being Sx-Worker Ethical Man with BMC should marry Sx-Worker whose Career he supports and approves of or should be Pimp trains Sx-Workers to marry Men with BMCs &/ play Side-Chik to Men with TMCs or should remain Single and visit Mistresses and Sx-Workers Xclusively. Get it? As Such Coming out the Closet and into her Power Position by Side-Chik can Only be accomplished by Parallel Humbling Coming out the Closet by Cuckold Man with Backwards Mistress Complx - like Shane Smith or my XBF G whose Dad's unFulfilled TMC led to the Son's BMC Fixation with Sx-Workers. Mistress Andrea Coates gets Successful when Powerful Man Shane Smith admits he has Backwards Mistress Complx and apologizes for his Misogyny // G & G's Dad admit they are Root of her Compulsive Promiscuity ( they are Pimps ). If Man with BMC refuses to admit his Sx-Worker infatuAtion Chik with Sx-Worker Complx like All Side-Chiks will remain in Shame Shadows with Only Negative Power of being able to ruin his Traditional Marriage to her Advantage in Relationship to Man. Unless Man of Distinction goes Public with “I have Backwards Mistress Complx - I am in Love with a Sx-Worker because she’s a Sx-Worker” Woman-as-Sx-Worker will be viewed as Social Pariah no One could love with More than their Penis - Sx-Worker without Man with BMC is Ratchet like Man with TMC whose Wife wont put up with his Mistress and Mistress wont put up with his Wife is Chump.

Man with Mistress Complx seeks Girlfriends with Benefits
Sure you can orgy with me All u want but u dont get to meet my Dad he would be so Jealous



But what does this have to do with Rachetness?

like the Idea of being “Connoisseur of Rachetness” is Contradiction reveals itself as meaning its Opposite upon Close Xamination

how can you be a Connoisseur of Tastelessness? Isn’t that you being Tasteful? or - is your being Blackgirl “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” ie Connoisseur of Black Tastelessness you being White? Only White Person or Black Person hangs out with Whites or writes to White Audience would refer to themself as “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” although when Black calls themself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” they’re being White in a Hipsterish Way - Hipsters let us recall were ‘White Niggers’ ‘Wiggers’ White People who pretended to be Black People - so “Connoisseur of Rachetness” is Black Hipster pretending to be White Person pretending to Black Person which makes Odd Sense in White-Supremacy - but when White calls themself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” they’re being Morbid Possibly Genocidal ie Racist

being “Glorified Side-Chik” is Contradiction means its Opposite upon Close Xamination

Long as you’re Side-Chik and not Wife playing Side-Chik to accommodate BMC you’re not being glorified for providing Sx you’re being xploited for Sx so calling yourSelf “Glorified Side-Chik” is saying you’re not being treated Better than Prostitute in your Relationship to Man which is Worse than Straight-up being Prostitute to Man in your Relationship - if you’re calling yourself Prostitute because you get treated like One in your Relationship to Man like calling yourSelf ‘Ratchet’ when you’re Black and Tasteless you’re owning it - you set the Price for Sx and he pays and thats how you take the Power back. If you were trying to say you are “Side-Chik who is glorified” what you are saying is your Role in Society as ‘Woman who provides Sx Xclusively' is being glorified to serve the eNds of an Xploitative Patriarchy wants Women like you to proliferate so Men can get Most Possible Sx for Least Possible Loving Commitment which is Sick and should be discouraged ie please don’t glorify the Side-Chik or call yourSelf “Connoisseur of Rachetness” cause a Better Idea is to respect the Sx-Worker even if she is Ratchet


Did you know Women are Bums and Men are Cars?

Black ‘Ratchet’ is an Inversion of White ‘Hipster’ which I defined in my Hipster Authenticity as a Contagious Insult, an Insult catches itself like a Cold. Only Hip Whitester is Pretentious enough to insult SomeOne else by calling them 'Hip' so calling SomeOne else 'Hipster' is to Backhandedly insult yourSelf for being White and Pretentious like that Person over there who is White and Pretentious. Use of ‘Hipster’ as an Insult is Particularly White Phenomenon - Only Self-Loathing Privileged White or Person of Color acting like Privileged White would snub themself for being Pretentious by snubbing Someone else for being Pretentious which is why ‘Hipster’ dissolves the Minute we use it as Compliment - if you’re calling yourSelf or Someone else ‘Hipster’ in Complimentary Way you’re saying it's a Good Thing to be Pretentious - which is not Hip at All - and thus calling yourSelf Hipster means you are not Hipster - you are unPretentious Person pretending to be Pretentious Person so Pretentious People will like you which they wont because if you're willing to Openly admit to being Pretentious as opposed to blaming Someone else for being Pretentious you're not Nearly so Pretentious but there’s still Contagiousness going on there where you become Pretentious White-Supremacist ‘Hipster’ Simply by using the Term.


Conversely ‘Ratchet’ Insular Insult Only Black People can use to insult Only Other Black People like ‘Nigger’ can Only be used by Black People to address Other Black People or else it’s Deeply Offensive. Insular Insult ‘Ratchet’ is Inversion of Contagious Insult ‘Hipster’ turns AnyOne and EveryOne who hears it or uses it into ‘Hipster’ - ‘Ratchet’ is Insult can Only remain within a Select Community of People who are 'Ratchet' can Only be used to describe a Very Particular Attitude or else it loses its Meaning it does not transform the Person who uses it into the Very Thing they are insulting rather its Proper vs imProper Application works as a Signifier of Membership to or Xclusion from an Insular Community. When a Person of Any Race sneers at Hipsters it’s because they themselves are a Hipster - a Person who identifies with White-Supremacy whose Guilt at associating with White-Supremacy is displayed in their sneering at Others for even Subtle displays of White-Supremacy. When a Black Person calls anOther Black Person ‘Ratchet’ they are saying that Person is Tasteless in a Particularly Black Way which indicates a) the Black Person using the Insult ‘Ratchet’ knows what is Tasteless and b) the Black Person using the Insult ‘Ratchet’ knows that Particular Brand of Tastelessness is Uniquely Black which allows them to feel a Pride in the Tastelessness as being Special to their Community. While Person of Any Color uses ‘Hipster’ becomes Hipster Person who is not Black using ‘Ratchet’ is being Racist against Black People. Unlike ‘Hipster’ which as Insult is Subtle Xpression of Self-Loathing for White-Supremacist Tastefulness ‘Ratchet’ as Insult is Celebration of being Tastelessly Black - no Wonder Hipsters want to be Ratchet but People who are Ratchet have no Interest in being Hipsters and want to protect their Word from Hipster Appropriation. Person who is not Black has no Idea what is Particularly Tasteless among Blacks and therefore Any Use of Term ‘Ratchet’ as Insult or Compliment by Person who is not Black is that Person Culturally-Appropriating in a Tasteless Manner - using Word whose Meaning they cannot know as if they did, which is not Hip at All or even Particularly Ratchet I dont think. This Essay is Racist but Tastefully so as Possible I hope.

Canadian Multiculturalism
American Racism

Whiteness as Caricature of Culture - how White-Supremacy turns 'Ratchet' into a Mega Meme

White People however are obsessed with Slang and Mannerisms Uniquely Black - it was Desire to be like Blacks created 1960s-Era New York 'Hipster' as Insult standing in for 'Wigger'- before that ‘Hipster’ was Hip Black Person and the Term could be used unIronically as Compliment but like Whites got Hold of ‘Ratchet’ and turned it into Sleazy Compliment for how Fake Black you can seem Minute White People got Hold of ‘Hipster’ it transformed into Means by which Whites could Slyly hate themselves for being White-Supremacists who wished they were Ratchet Blacks with Hip Jazz Collections. So Naturally Hipsters have seized upon ‘Ratchet’ and are transforming it from Insult Blacks trade amongst Each Other to define Black Tastelessness in Opposition to White Taste into Something you can be Connoisseur of makes you seem Hip to White People. Just what is it about being Tasteless in Particularly Black Way is so appealing to Hipsters whose Raison-d’Etre is being Tasteful or Hip in a White-Supremacist Way? Ratchetness - even if it is Tasteless - is Authentic - Ratchetness is Authentic Black Tastelessness - it is the Tastelessness of a Black who isn’t trying to impress Whites. So when Blackgirl Robin Boylorn calls herself “Connoisseur of Ratchetness” on gawker.com she’s having us believe she is Hip enough not to care what White People think is Hip so White People will think she’s Hip. I believe her, do you? If ‘Hipster’ is Self-Conscious Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathing to Point of insulting yourSelf for being Self-Consciously Pretentiously White-Supremacistly Self-Loathing by insulting SomeOne else for being Self-Consciously Pretentiously White-Supremacistly Self-Loathing - thereby protecting yourSelf from examining the Pretentious White-Supremacist Roots of your Self-Conscious Self-Loathing by insulating you in a Bubble of like-minded Hipsters - ‘Hipster’ is Self-Consciously Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathing Insult as Self-Compliment, it describes Hipsters Well - ‘Ratchet’ is so Authentically Tasteless your Own People think you’re Tasteless, which lets EveryOne who’s Black and Tasteless in on the Joke. An Authentically Ratchet Bitch will tag herSelf ‘Ratchet’ in a Selfie but Only a Hipster calls herSelf ‘Connoisseur of Ratchetness’ and Probably doesn’t tag her Selfies as ‘Ratchet’ - she’s got too Much Taste for that, she’s got a Level of Self-Conscious Pretentious White-Supremacist Self-Loathsome Remove from her Ratchet Black Brethren but considering this Remove she’s Better off calling herSelf ‘Connoisseur of Ratchetness’ than insulting anOther Black by calling them ‘Ratchet’, Right?


I'd call my Fashion Sense 'Glorified Side-Chik' 
and it can be replicated for the Price of a High-Profile Affair 
or Several

Hipsters are obsessed with Authenticity, including Authentic Tastelessness ( Ironic Ratchet and Glorified Side-Chik and White-Trash Chic is so Hipster ) because Authenticity is what Hipsters are Authentically lacking - Hipsters can’t even insult themselves Authentically. “We Ratchet Bitches” or “Dude, I’m just a Glorified Side-Chik” becomes “Ew this Place is Full of Hipsters” implying Only you are Hip enough to know a Bunch of Hipsters when you see them and get grossed out. Hipsters are obsessed with Blacks because Blacks seem Particularly Authentic to Hipsters but what is it about Blacks seems Authentic to Hipsters? Their ‘Ratchetness’? ie: their inDifference to the Tasteful Opinions of Hip White People? What Hipsters admire in Blacks I think is Authentic Black Resentment of White-Supremacy. I think Whites dislike living in Alienating White-Supremacy like Men dislike living in Alienating Patriarchy but like Man isn’t going to feel he’s Manly unless he upholds the Patriarchy Hipster isn’t going to feel he's Hip unless he’s using White-Supremacy to transform Authentic Resentment of White-Supremacy into Something Tastefully Hip, which Authentic Resentment of White-Supremacy cannot be - Hip, Authentically. hence the Dilemma at the Heart of the Hipster - Longing to be Authentically Aesthetically Rebellious like Ratchet Black underDog without giving up One’s Position of Privilege and Good Taste. Surely there must be a Way to dress? Like a Connoisseur of Tastelessness?   


You could always try a Native American Headdress. That'll convince People you're Authentic.

Hipsters romanticize Side-Chiks like Hipsters romanticize Ratchet Blacks and Dead Indians - Side-Chik like Ratchet Black like Dead Indian is Authentically oppressed like Hipster by Patriarchal White-Supremacist Capitalist Technocracy but More-so and there must be a Way for Hipsters to Aesthetically-assert their Feelings of Authentic Oppression without actually having to take on the Pain and Suffering of those More-so oppressed than themselves - like glorifying and romanticizing the More-so-oppressed in Privileged White-Supremacist Hipster Art and Fashion. Olivia Pope is emPowered Black Mistress to White American President whose Privileged Position landed her Job covering up Scandals! Being Scandalous Side-Chik gives Privileged White Mistress Andrea Coates Sort of Ratchetness for Canadian Connoisseurs! on it goes with the Contradictions and Cultural Appropriations.

Oooh look I'm Lana Del Rey I'm a Man's Mistress in this Music Video that is so Ratchet

"HAPPY BDAY LANA DEL REY!! I'm OBSESSED with the RIDE video!".
Gosh being Popular Hipster Artist acting like Sx-Worker 
failing to make it as Popular Hipster Artist cause Men make Girls Popular 
in Hipster Arts would rather she stay Sx-Worker 
is Such Tough Art to make I am so Authentically Sad and Wistful for me
I'm Alien I got Spirit of a Black Man that's why I have White Side-Chiks kill my Black Mentor
or no wait maybe Spring Breakers is One of those American Movies doesn't realize it's a Canadian Movie WiggerGangster+4WhiteSideChiks=Andrea Coates Nordic Cougar Gangsta Courtesan so Wild she makes Pretentious White Men feel Better about themselves for not being Black Gangsters
In which Country is Politics a Sxist Racist Joke? xplain this to me Lana

Alien from Spring Breakers is Good Xample of White Person acts ‘Ratchet’ as Sort of Reverse-Pretension - Pretentious about being unPretentious. White Person can grow up surrounded by Blacks facing Same Daily Poverty as Blacks yet at the eNd of the Day White Kid grows up with Blacks cannot feel Oppression associated with having Black Skin Way Black can therefore cannot manifest Authentic inDignation with White-Supremacy Hipsters find so alluring in Black Mannerisms try Desperately to commodify and imitate in Music Videos and Imaginary Gangsters. White Kid grew up Black Neighborhood Poor as Black aping Black Style like ‘Ratchet’ is still putting on Pretentious Act of Oppression inAuthentic as Any Attempt to deny One’s Whiteness and Privilege. Similarly Any Attempt to glorify a Side-Chik like Any Attempt to act Black if you're not is not Hip but Racist is not Feminist emPowerment but playing into Oppressive Patriarchy’s Xpectation Women accommodate Sxist Power Fantasies - 'Lana Del Rey' is Guilty on Both Counts: Elizabeth Grant treats Racial and Sxual Identities as Costumes to adorn her White Privilege. I don’t think we should disrespect Side-Chik for being Woman offers Casual Sx at Material Price - for being Prostitute - but I don’t think we should glorify her either. Only People glorify Prostitutes are People want to reduce Prostitute to Object in their Personal Fetish - in Elizabeth Grant's Case the Prostitute is reduced to Persona she can take on an off like a Cute Red Dress meanwhile I have to try Much Harder not to be Prostitute than I have to try to be Popular Hipster Artist no matter how I dress. For Prostitutes to be seen as Human and Respectable it needs to be understood being Sx-Worker is Difficult Job with Many Hazards Two of which are being reduced to inHuman Object of Romantic Shame or inHuman Object of Romantic Fantasy. Perhaps Ratchet Black can sympathize - either you’re Totally Tasteless cause you don’t care what White-Man thinks or your Authentic Sense of Taste has been co-opted by White-Man - either Way like the Demonized-vs-Glorified Sx-Worker you don’t get to set the Standards of your Own Self-Definition - the Privileged Oppressor does that.


I want it to sound Black!

What Whites admire in Blacks is Authentic Perhaps Tasteless Self-inDulgence and Wildness we feel we’ve lost in ourSelves over Generations of Rationalization and Bureaucratization has afforded us Socioeconomic Privilege at the Cost of our Earthiness or Ratchetness. Authentic Tastelessness and Wildness of 'White-Trash' is tainted by Racism whereas Black Tastelessness and Wildness is Pure - thinks the White Hipster who would scoff coming out a Screening of Spring Breakers at White Guy wearing Trucker Hat and Gold Grill texting his Side-Chik who looks and acts like Miley Cyrus but still sees her Lot as Better than the Ratchet Blackgirl’s because it is
Ratchet
