Still Holding a Special Place in Your Heart for the Pimp

Oh, the memories!  Sitting back in your easy chair or seated on a sofa, you are channel surfing.  You come across an old film with a black man decorated in a brightly colored suit with a matching hat and a feather sticking out the top.  You think of Robin Hood briefly when you look at his hat--stealing from the rich to give to the poor.  (Oh, you fed right into the marketers' schemes with that one.)  The handsome black man wears boots with a heel which makes him appear a little taller than he is and a little softer than he looks with his button down shirt.  It's like he has the appeal of both sexes. (Once again, the marketers got you!)  He actually looks fit, better looking than you.  (You will be looking more closely at what he has so that you can spend your money on some old back in the day stuff--they got you again!)  Walking down the street with two seductively dressed women, the pimp has one white with straight, blond hair and one dark skin with black, curly hair on his arms.  They are all headed to a large automobile called a Cadillac--it's long, real long. (How many folks who had some money in your family owned a Cadillac?  The car dealership drained their wallets for years on a car that they most likely didn't get pay off before having an accident.)  The front hood is large enough to lay a few bodies on it and the trunk big enough to put a few dead ones in it. 

While watching a scene on TV similar to the one described in real life, you look over at your older relative, the one who use to know a pimp or two from the '70s, and he has a stupid grin on his face with eyes glued on the screen.  The only smile you have seen on his face all day.  Yeah, he's across the room re-living his youth admiring a pimp, now re-read that last line.  It's not a doctor, scholar, lawyer, teacher, preacher, fellow father, or even his own daddy that generates such warm emotions inside, it's a pimp!  A man who gets his income from putting women out on street corners and everywhere else to sell sex.  An unrighteous man is glorified for his power, fame and money in the 'hood.   

Now let's just take a moment and blow that old school image of a pimp up--an archetype that has old fools acting like young pimps nowadays!  Meanwhile, the marketing masterminds behind the scenes pimp the pimp, "Go get our money b*tch or else!"  Now before you instruct me to watch my mouth, I could direct you to a few shows that ain't right from preacher pimps to baby daddy pimps and some of ya'll just love 'em, but I don't want to give them no more airtime then they have already received, now back to the pimped pimp who, like a wolf, comes in sheep's clothing with all his smooth talk, his crafty walk, kissing babies, sexing the ladies, making promises, and telling everyone, "You crazy, but I love you baby."  Who could be mad at a nice pimp with a seemingly generous spirit about himself?  But the discerning know better.  Grandma use to take one long look at a few of my admirers back in the day and say, "Now that one there, he's full of sh*t!  And that other one is no good!  And could you have done better, he got some money?!"

A created character from way back when amplified by mass media, the pimp was like a puppet on strings for the government.  And although he doesn't look like his past, the pimp still walks amongst us. A little more smarter these days because he completed highschool or maybe graduated from college, he can still get into places that the boys in blue can't and don't want to either.  His yesteryear wardrobe was emulated by many dumb, ignorant or bored black men who were nothing more than walking targets that wore signs when they put on his attire, "I perform illegal services for the community! Take me off to jail."  You couldn't miss them with all their bright colors. 

Black folks back in the day, and blacks folks now, just don't think before they put on the clothing that is being directly marketed to them.  Ask yourself this, "What are the designers that are splattered all over my shirts, pants, purses, wallets, shoes, and other things really representing?  Am I someone's walking target?"  Let's think long and hard about the ghetto wisdom I am sharing today.  If you lived in a community of lack and you didn't have much going on besides a little sex here and there and a paycheck every two weeks, would the pimp be your form of escape from a dead end lifestyle?  Could he move on your mind to want to try new things including white women? 

Some of the black men were programmed by their so-called harmless TVs from the time they could watch TV.  They were told by the pimp, "It's okay playa, you can have at least one white woman on your arm in your lifetime.  Uncle Charlie won't hang you, you dig?"  And that one, Snow White, could care less about her pimp, she was working out deals with non-blacks who wanted to see him go down! As long as Snow White's people accepted her back home, she always had a place of shelter. She was used until she couldn't be used no more for a bit of information about those criminally minded black folks in the hood and in corporate America.  Meanwhile, Chocolate Drop would warn the pimp about Snow White until she grew weary of not being heard, the once loyal worker would eventually turn on him like a snake. 

Snow White knew how to draw her pimp to The Man like a fish to a worm, it was too easy to be trusted, thanks to television programming.  But when that hoe was all used up, she was reminded that when she started the mission she was white trash and when her job was complete she was white trash!  Now stop for a moment, and think about some of these so-called relationships that are obviously not working, but seem to drag on, someone ain't it for just the cream, that's for sure.  No respectable white man back in the '70s or even those today, who aren't fond of black folks, would even think about taking a black man's sloppy seconds, but a pimp will try anything at least once--just so long as it makes him money.

I will be the first to admit the pimp has a charming appeal.  When I was born into this wicked world made up of male and female pimps, players and hustlers in the '70s, not only did I see pimps on TV, but in person too with their hats on and with their hats off later in life.  Back then, a little girl with wide eyes, I was curious about the pimp, but not enough to be one of his hoes.  But what I didn't plan on was all the programmed wannabe pimps in the world who glorified his lifestyle.  These copycats were actors, average men with average lifestyles wishing to pimp a young lady out.  But as I grew older, I recognized the farce in yet another created caricature for blacks.  One more thing to distract us from the spiritual power within.  A black man can't hear his inner oracle when he is being pimped by the pimp.  The pimp can't hear or see his hoes for who they really are, another man's daughters, because he is too busy being pimped by the ones who created him.  Think of other examples where this idealology plays a part.  The worker and the manager, the wife and the husband, and the business man and his partners, get the picture.  Pimps are everywhere folks!

A pimp is nothing more than a slave dressed in someone else's clown suit whether it is all decorated up with a tilted matching hat (notice his creators didn't dress him up in any respectable attire) or worn with a hood and sagging pants.  A truly spiritually changed black man would think twice before admiring or acting like a pimp.  If you trust your Holy Bible, Koran or whatever it is that you read for spiritual nourishment, then the wise words in it should be something that takes the pimp out of that head game he likes to play with the unenlightened ones. But those who could careless, continue to perpetuate the pimp archetype.

My brothers and sisters, this pimp mentality issue is a matter of the heart for some of you.  No more warm, fuzzy feelings for the pimp.  Turn shows off with him in it.  Don't even sit with any man who wishes for the days when men slapped their women around.  Avoid encouraging the ungodly men in your family to "...tell that story when you had all those women...and that one did..."  Meanwhile, his wife is seated in the next room, have some respect!

Ask your God to change your mindset and those around you concerning the Pimp.

Rest in peace, to all those who thought big pimpin' was all 'dat!
