Dear Angry Black Bitches Offended Black Women,

Allow me to offer you a virtual hug. It’s been a rough few years for you hasn’t it? Everytime you look at television you see a news report telling you that you’re not good enough, you’re not smart enough and that no one loves you. In recent days, an interview with the multi-platinum rapper Slim Thug has turned your world completely upside down. You can’t eat or sleep because you have spent countless hours on the internet sending hate filled @ replies to a man who has no idea who you are. And more importantly doesn’t even give a shit.

Have you ever stopped to think why it is that you are so angry? You probably started to, and then came former skripper turned authoress, Brook Lynne Carter to express your feelings in the grammatically incorrect fashion to which you are accustomed. She made the point that Slim Thug is not worthy of having a black woman because he can’t book a show and in essence he aint shit. Really? Really? If that were the case why exhaust so many characters and keystrokes on him? They say the first cut is the deepest… that one must have cut pretty deep because all of you rallied behind her. Screaming “YOU GO GIRL!!!” “ YOU TOLD HIM!!!” “YEAH HE AINT SHIT!!!” “BROKE ASS NIGGA!!!” Really? Ok.

As if that weren’t enough, we had a Ph.D. spending the afternoon partaking in this bullshit. Marc Lamont Hill is respected in a lot of scholarly circles, and his intent I’m sure was genuine. I however, have a problem with him engaging in this sparring match when the last time I saw him he was on Fox News allowing Bill O’Reilly to say he looked like a crack dealer. Really? Really? That’s all I’m going to say on that.

Most of you are angry that he took to a public forum to discuss his displeasure with you I know, I know he aint talkin about you. At the end of the day all of this emotion can and should be funneled into something productive for your family, community or nation. While you were sitting on twitter all day, you’re daughters were being told their worth lies in the dimensions of their ass on BET. Your neighbors son just shot someone, and BP still hasn’t stopped that oil leak. So while you were worried about what some rapper said about your worth, you proved him right by being offended by things that don’t even apply to you…ok who am I kidding…he was talking about YOU. Now get your broke ass off the internet before you get fired.

Signed,

Your Beige sister
