UPDATE: Another One Downs Black Women

slimthug2 UPDATE: Another One Downs Black Women

Rapper [lastfm]Slim Thug[/lastfm] speaks on why white women are the way to go. Check it out and say if you agree…

[lastfm]Slim Thug[/lastfm] talks with VIBE Magazine about why black women need to lower their standards and why women succeed.

It’s hard to trust a Black woman [sometimes] because a lot of Black women’s mind frame is that the man gotta do everything for her; he gotta pay for this, he gotta pay for that, and if it ain’t about money then a lot of them ain’t f***ing with him…

“Most single Black women feel like they don’t want to settle for less. Their standards are too high right now. They have to understand that successful Black men are kind of extinct… It’s hard to find us so Black women have to bow down and let it be known that they gotta start working hard; they gotta start cooking and being down for they man more…”

“My girl is Black and White. I guess the half White in her is where she still cooks and do all the shit that I say, so we make it. She just takes care of me and I like that. She don’t be begging and I don’t gotta buy her all this crazy ass s***. And she’s a smart girl too… I’ve dated girls that will buy a $3,000 bag and don’t know how to pay it off on their credit cards. They walk around in these Louis Vuittons and red bottoms but they’re riding around in raggedy cars, so it’s just getting your priorities right.”

“White women treat they man like a king and Black women feel like they ain’t gotta do that shit. Black women need to stand by their man more. Don’t always put the pressure of if I’m f***ing with you, you gotta buy me this and that. Black men are the ones that motherf***ers need [but] I think a lot of them need to step it up too…”

How many agree??? Disagree???

Columbia Professor, Marc Lamont Hill, had something to say after reading [lastfm]Slim Thug[/lastfm]’s interview…

In your interview, you talk about how much better white women treat their partners than black women. If what you’re saying is true, why do Whites have the highest divorce rate of any group? Do white men get tired of being treated like kings? In reality, it seems that you are buying into (and selling) a stale but dangerous ideal that constructs White women as ultra-feminine, loving, queens, and Black women as angry, selfish, and untrustworthy hoes.

Even more disturbing was your comment that “Black women gotta start being down for their man more.” Since slavery, Black women have had to withstand rape, torture, and humiliation (from both white and black men) in order to sustain their families. Now, in 2010, 1 in 3 Black men between 20 and 29 years old are incarcerated or otherwise under criminal supervision. Every day, Black women are raising children without men in the house, working multiple jobs (for less pay!), and supporting brothers as they finish their prison bids.

With Black male unemployment as high as 50 percent in some cities, sisters are often holding down households without child support or other financial assistance. Black female incarceration rates are skyrocketing, partly because Black women are “riding” for their men, hiding guns and drugs, operating as mules, and refusing to snitch to authorities. In addition, Black women are the group most likely to be victims of domestic violence and the least likely to be married. Still, in spite of all this bad news, Black women are less likely to date outside their race than Black men.

How much more “down” do you want Black women to be?

Now what do you think???

    I don’t agree with Slim. I would add that there are different mentalities with white and black women, positive and negative. I’ve experienced both and think there are issues with all women and we as men have to find out what is best for us. Sistas should have high standards, but they should be in the right position and frame of mind to have them.

    Black women have been taking good care of black men from day one. Working hard to keep the home straight. You are trippn. Your woman is just a good woman. If she was wit somebody else he would be good to him too. Don’t think that u can say what you want because you think your on top now.

    I think Slim Thug is an absolute idiot. I for one am a black woman who cooks everyday, I am a single mother, don’t really have a choice but to cook everyday. Not to mention I am a black woman from Houston, TX who cooks everyday. I have a question for SLIMe Thug, is his mother a black woman? And was she the first woman who didn’t cook for him?. I am a big hip hop fan however he will never get my dollar. What a completely idiotic thing to say about an entire race of woman. It is his choice not to date black women, however I really do feel sorry for him if he thinks any woman wants to cook and clean Everyday! If he wants to be treated like a King maybe he should not call himself a THUG. Even Kings respect thier Queens……

    SLime Thug, U ATTRACT WHAT U R.

    I don’t think the fact that Slim Thug’s woman is “half white” is the reason she takes care of him. She’s probably just a good woman. And what makes him think it’s the WHITE side of her that’s treating him so well??. There are black women who do all the things she does too. Ask yourself THIS. Would she be with you if you weren’t “Slim Thug”? Was she with you when you didn’t have anything?? Nobody stands by a black man the way black women do. For the record, Slim, there are plenty of us that hang in there when black men lose their jobs, go to jail, get shot, have “baby mama drama”, CHEAT, etc. etc. And just so you know, we as black women have lowered our standards enough when it comes to the short-comings of black men and we get tired. The problem is not us… it’s men like YOU.

    Honestly, I’d bash the professors opinion equally to Slim Thug.

    This is an everlasting example battle which I have a ton of arguments for both sides. This whole thing is the chicken or the egg.

    Is it the black man’s fault that he left the household leaving the women to be independent and raise independent daughters that have no example of how to treat a man or that a man in not a necessity, sons that have no idea how to treat women? Or did she not treat him like he needed to be treated to stay so he could be there for his son and daughter as an example. The only thing thats consistent is that women are less “down” for their men every generation and men less “down” for their women equally every generation.

    In Slim Thug’s defense:
    Trina – Gucci Shoe Shopping (nah its not an article, its a song, that will be sang, played, repeated 10 Trillion times)
    “I would rather lose my man, before I lost my Gucci shoes”
    I think this is more along the lines of what he was trying to get across. It’s right that you are what you get. If you are hip hop, then girls of the hip hop culture expecting more and more MONEY out of their men. Listen to the men talk about giving women “whatever u like” and women talk about getting whatever they want. What is it that women are offering men more and more of for this money? You are prettier? Pretty is relative, pretty girls are a dime a dozen, rich men are definitely not.

    Slim Thug is an immature black male thinking he is an African American Man because he has a little money and fame. His interview sounds an awful a lot like Wesley Snipes interview with Essence Magazines some years back, only Wesley felt Asian women are the way to go. Not only did his career to into the toilette his momma practically disowned the little Imp.

    Know this my Sistahs, the women Thug SlimE attracts are “H***” willing to do anything and everything for a dollar or few material items or 15 minutes of fame. He has to ask himself this question, “Will my chick cross the street and lay down with another guy who comes along with a bigger bank roll and higher level of fame then me?” I’m quite sure his little half breed does only show him her so called “white side” to please him and keep him in line. While her so called “black side” is hustling this idiot for everything she can get her hands on and she probably has two guys on the side. (don’t underestimate a woman)

    My theory as to why Thug SlimE has put all African American Women in one category is that there is that strong, mature, independent African American Woman who was out of league – he fell in love with her and she would not give him the time of day before or after he became famous. Thus all African American Women have high standards and are not realistic when it comes to understanding African American Men, addressing their man’s needs, and knowing their place in the relationship – blah, blah, blah.

    I love little minded, materialistic, vain black boys like him. When they approach me and ask “What Nationality is U”, my response is “thank U for not wasting my time, you can move on – because if you have to ask me that question U can’t handle me.” My birth certificate says I’m black and both my parents are black, but the men who fall in Thug SlimE’s category want me to tell them I’m- Hawaiian, Samoan, Latina, Native American etc. – but not African American – please. I am in a serious relationship with an African American Man, it took along time to find him, but as Heather Hadley says, He is…and I have to be the same for him.” I move heaven and earth for this man and he does the same for me. We are both independent, have high standards and know in any mature relationship there is a give and take, a need for balance, constant communication, and respect.

    Regardless of what race you are self respect and love has to be your first priority. So my Black Sistahs don’t let this little Imp anger you. He and other little minded black boys like him are a waste of your time and energy. Keep your standards, respect yourself, love yourself, and when Mr. Right comes along you will know. Thug Slim is here today and will be gone tomorrow.

    First off you gotta read his actual interview. He does not say anything about white women are better at all. He says his bro jokingly brags about his white girl to him saying she is more down. Slim Thugga has never dated a white girl in his life. His words do hold truth though. Many people in general are becoming more materialistic. If they don’t get want they want they throw a BF and easily make a relationship go down the drain. Women and men are far different from what they were five to ten years ago. The man gave his opinion on his experiences so far. Those of y’all who have said things such as “men are dogs,” or “men are all the same” are disqualified. When y’all say that y’all are including every man. Y’all say that with limited experience jus as Slim Thug does, but he acknowledges that it’s based on his experiences. Y’all do not! So before you go mouthing off reevaluate your opinions on men because you might be irrelevant.

    This interview speaks of ignorance. Black women have been taking care of BLACK society for like EVER! Please; look to your left; look to your right…..What black MAN you see paying for everything?? Where is this fella?
    I have standards, but non that I cannot aim for myself. I am educated, have my own home, I am employed and I take care of my business. I am just looking for an equal participant. Not looking for a gravy train ride.
