"The Attitude" Sells in Mainstream Media


What would you say if your daughter or son came up to you and popped his or her neck, rolled their eyes, and cursed you at the top of his or her lungs? You would smack them, right? Look, I won't tell.

It seems that the more you watch TV the more shows market the black woman's attitude. Years ago, you would have never seen sistas like the ones on ATL Housewives or Basketball Wives on TV. It just wouldn't have happened! All that sassy talking, neck rolling, finger popping (yeah okay) it was good for In Living Color with the gay characters.

Prior to the 90s, non-blacks weren't marketing that kind of high-class ignorance. Heck, reality shows like the ones today, didn't even exist! You were lucky to get on TV if you were an African American who looked somewhat attractive and could articulate some big words! lol Very few women or men who looked like that character and her mom in the movie, Precious, were even seen on TV! You actually prayed when you watched a movie that the character in the storyline didn't get killed off! Unfortunately, back then, the African American usually did-- especially if he or she was in a horror or action movie.

What non-blacks prior to the 90s didn't know is how much profit they stood to gain if they would allow "the attitude" to show up on TV. Sure, there were some movie or TV scenes here and there, with "the attitude," but it was suttle, I'm thinking of Dianna Ross and Dianne Carol and the characters in Good Times and even The Jeffersons (notice George had the attitude not Wheezy.) But these days, attitude is all over the place even for the men, it's so sad, with their eyeliner and painted on eyebrows. Reality show after reality show of attitudes! Week after week watching women name-call, back-bite, fuss, and fight.

One day I had, had enough! I turned off a show, went about my day and literally forgot about the TV for days. I just didn't want to catch a glimpse of "sista girl" drama! I dealt with enough of that back in the day from racist blacks jealous about my nappy hair and acne-ridden light-skin along with all my accomplishments. "You think you cute...You think you smart..." some white looking black would say and then later a darker skin black would have her say too. Whatever b*tches! So why in the world do I want to rehash all that by watching it on TV, no thank you!

Hey, all this arguing between black women doesn't bother the ring leaders of it all, now does it? They "get paid, son!" Isn't that what they say on the street? lol I watched a video online where a DJ at a radio station accused Shaunie O'Neil (formerly married to NBA basketball player, Shaquille O'Neil) of "pimpin'" the ladies only he called them, "hoes." I had never thought of it like that, but technically he's right! Elitist non-blacks recruit from within (like they have always done) a friendly, well-to-do, "get that money" type of woman (thanks to her husband) to get some sistas with attitudes to act like hoes. (Shaq went along with it, because he is one of the executive producers of the show and we all know that Shaq is nothing but a giant boy.) These women are cussing, slapping, sleeping and hanging with the enemy and "you call yourself a Christian!" That's the small voice I hear in the back of my head while typing this. "What on earth are women doing to one another and they call themselves 'believers'?" I guess they will holler, "Lord, Lord" in the last days and he won't hear them or us for supporting the pimp game.

As long as we continue to watch, elitist non-blacks and blacks will make money off the black woman's attitude. Meanwhile, that sassy child watching it all is going to try you, someone you know or a stranger in the street and God help 'em.

Something for the Mothers...

Some of you may already know that this blog as well as many others on Blogger are maintained by Nicholl McGuire Media named after an African American writer, author and poet originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, now in Los Angeles. You can learn more about her at: nichollmcguire.blogspot.com The mother of four sons offers opportunities for writers to periodically contribute to this blog as well as others including: http://whenmotherscry.blogspot.com The blog was turned into a book that you may find on Amazon.com. The book and blog was created based on McGuire's experiences attempting to raise a newborn, a toddler and tweens all at the same time while dealing with internal struggles with motherhood and external influences that weren't always positive. Other mothers' from all nationalities have contributed to this blog over the years.

Recently, a blog caught the eye of Nicholl and she wanted it to be known to readers on this site (specifically the mothers) about Mahogany Momma's Black Parenting Blog. Insightful information, at times humorous, with some parenting experiences an African American mother can nod her head in agreement. This blog may be found at: http://blackparenting.blogspot.com/ Definitely worth checking out!

About Our People...

There comes a time when you just have to let some folks go, because if you don't they will keep you behind! It doesn't matter what title they hold in your family tree or how much they have done for you in the past--their ignorance is just not going to change no matter how much you reason it away!

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet some very interesting people in my life, you know the kind who are progressive, wealthy and know what they want out of life type of African Americans. They also know who they want to spend the rest of their lives with sharing their good fortune too! Can I just say, that the common denominator between these people is they don't fool around with "our people!" You might say, "Well what do you mean? What they don't deal with blacks?" Oh these people deal with blacks, but they don't deal with a certain type of black--the ignorant ones.

Some of you know who I am talking about, matter of fact, he or she is in the next room! As ghetto as she wants to be, we love her, but she has issues. As ghetto as he wants to be, we love him, but he should have gotten some help a long time ago!

In a world of technological advances in just about every category known to man and continuous strides of minorities all across the world, there are those outdated, wrong, or just plain strange statements that ignorant blacks keep circulating! You basically know where you stand with some black folks just by what comes out of their mouths!

Here are the following 10 ignorant statements I have heard in recent years.

1. "If you have 1% black in you, you are black!"

I don't care about an old law created by racist individuals! Let's look at reality for a minute. So you expect a child to deny the white, Asian, Mexican or some other half side of he or she just because this person may have a prominent nose or lips, tan skin, and/or kinky hair? I think some blacks are haters, because they wish they could pass for white--lol.

2. "You can trust dem folks more than your own peoples."

Now really? So because he or she is fairer skin and talks articulate makes them trustworthy? lol

3. "You know white people is racist!"

Oh and "some" black people aren't? How about adding the word "some"!

4. "Black men got big ones."

I beg to differ, from personal experience, not every black man has a big one maybe everyone you happened to be intimate with had a big one.

5. "Get yourself a light-skin black with good hair. They make pretty looking babies."

Really? I don't think this applies to all in a light skin, dark skin relationship--some children only a mother could love. Not only that, what makes you think the child is going to inherit "straight" hair from their light-skin mom or dad or better yet, even turn out to be light-skin? Negro please!!!

6. "White people is nasty!"

Oh, so there aren't any other non-black people who are nasty? And what about some blacks who are nasty? Once again, add the word "some."

7. "Vote for the black man...vote for the black woman."

This is part of the reason how Obama got into office. You had some ignorant blacks who were telling folks to vote for him long before they knew anything about the man. They did the same thing back in the day when Jesse was running.

8. "Jesus was black."

As much as some wish this to be true, Jesus was Jewish and yes some Jews have an interesting texture of hair (many blacks like to talk about the scripture in the bible that talks about Jesus' hair texture and right away say, "See, he was black!")

9. "Put some money on the window sill to bring you good luck."

How about you put it there and one of your relatives or friends take it out the window? If money put any where in one's home brought luck, then our ancestors should have been some of the richest folks in the world, right? Instead, many was the poorest.

10. "Don't split the pole...you better not sweep my foot...don't put your purse on the floor...don't walk under a ladder..."

All these superstitious phrases are nothing more than ignorant statements to keep you in bondage! "Oh no...I split the pole...I stay broke I should have never put my purse on the floor..." Isn't there enough to worry about? Last I checked in the Bible, if one trusted in God like he or she claimed, this person wouldn't be bound to such foolishness! God delivers us from bondage!

Some of you are doing bad all by yourself, you don't need any help! Keep away from ignorant people and don't feed the fools!
