Before we get to the jokes, we’ve seen some insane SJW statements (see SJWs Hang ‘Racism is as American as baseball’ Sign at Fenway Park and SJW Gets White Conductor Fired for Joking with Black Friend…). But straight black men are the white people of black people? There’s some quality identity politics going on there.
And for the sake of moving things along, let’s skip the “oh but a white person could never get away with a headline like that” thing. I’m sure you’ll find that on the interwebs by the time White People Flipping Houses is on.
But assessing our privilege (or lack thereof) on these facts considers only our relationship with whiteness and with America. Intraracially, however, our relationship to and with black women is not unlike whiteness’s relationship to us. In fact, it’s eerily similar.
And nowhere is this more evident than when considering the collective danger we pose to black women and our collective lack of willingness to accept and make amends for that truth. It’s a damning and depressing paradox.
I mean, I’m charitable. The author may have made a point in the post. But, if you’ll allow me the language of the left, it was lost in excessive raceshaming, sexuallityshaming, and penisshaming while masquerading as intellectual gobbledegook. Spare yourself the headache and just let us tell you what it was: worthless, rambling tripe. “Straight black men are the white people of black people” can only be so many things. Insightful is not one. Meaningful is not one. “Accuracy” is the star which is furthest from the planet this writer calls home.
Most likely, the author was a few clicks below their monthly web traffic quota, and knew the headline would be like chum for conservatives to bump those numbers up. To use another adage: low hanging fruit.
Who are we not to oblige?
The left has hit peak ridiculousness, but that won’t stop them from trying to hit new levels of stupid. So far this blogger is the one to beat. We’re living in such a privileged time and space, bloggers are reaching into their rectal cavities for topics of suffering.
