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.
Gil Laury at Onyx Truth:
Olivia Pope/American President Xtra-Marital is Xemplary of
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.
and are still Heartborken about my Son.
hahaha. My Son is too Good for you.
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
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.
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?
- Man - he gets Multiple Lovers and is viewed as Sxually-Attractive
- Wife - she gets Man’s Commitment but is viewed as Sxually-Played-out
- Mistress - she is viewed as Sxually-Attractive but not worth committing to
- Mistress - she is Professional Sx-Worker
- 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
- 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
But what does this have to do with Rachetness?
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.
Whiteness as Caricature of Culture - how White-Supremacy turns 'Ratchet' into a Mega Meme
I'd call my Fashion Sense 'Glorified Side-Chik'
and it can be replicated for the Price of a High-Profile Affair
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?
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
