   In what I would deem poor judgement on the creative and editing floor followed by lazy and underwhelming journalism, started a mini wildfire when they posted this "article" by Houston rapper Slim Thug.  Several disturbing factors passed off as Slim's opinion throughout the write-up made me pause. I was so ticked... I decided to blog about it. *Fingers to the temple & deeeep sigh*

1. WHEN did SLIM THUGG become a relationship expert credible to critique Black relationships?!
#WhattheJoeJacksonhell?!?! His most publicized relationship was with (ex-Destiny's Child member/ Beyaki nemesis) Letoya Luckett, and that allegedly ended because he cheated and procreated with his cousin. He has never been married, is not on-record as having any said degree in psychology or human behavior... I don't even think he's had a relevant hit single since 2005. So, I'm lost as to why he was even chosen as the latest gimp in the "BW Need To Do Better, Aim Lower To Get A Man v. 2010" debate.
2. Discussing all Black women in such general negative terms is a clear sign of self hatred. Seriously. Slim, your mother, sister, cousins, hell, even one of your baby's mother's is a Black woman. The rest of the world often struggles to decipher differences amongst Brown women as the media tends to lump us together. Slim describing Black women as gold-diggers with high standards that fail to silently submit to idiot demands of rappers (named "Slim Thug" that still rock cornrows past the age of 35 even in 2010?!?) in no circle would pass as an accurate depiction of US. *Pause* Apologies, "SimThugga" was not nearly that eloquent when attempting to describe his opinion. His chosen buffoonery:
  "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 fucking with him. If that’s what you’re here for then I don’t want to be with you."

3. Yet another Black man (or anyone for that matter) insists on telling Black women our standards are too high.
   "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. We’re important. 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."
Excuse me sir. WHY would you advise any woman, much less the strong BLACK WOMAN to settle for less?!?! It is this lazy mentality that really enraged me for clearly he does not recognize the daily struggles, accomplishments, achievements and even tribulations that comprise life- nor any reverence for the graceful way we excel at every. Aspect. Of. Life. We raise the babies in the single parent homes, educate the community as public school systems are on the decline, obtain multiple degrees and thrive in our respective careers, all in a society that has devalued while benefiting from our feminine power for centuries. The Black woman is the most "down", and it often is to our detriment as many Black men aren't mature enough to reciprocate on spiritual, emotional, and financial levels. Marinate on that for a min.
4. Slim had the audacity to compare Black women with "others" namely, white women as he prefers their docile nature over our hard-work (in his opinion). "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 fucking with you, you gotta buy me this and that."
*le sigh*. Really Slim?? Really?? If that is your limited and emasculating experience with white women, that actually sheds a crack of light. No real man would want a woman who was not equally yoked as it would eclipse the totality of what he could become! If you hate on the progressive Black woman, you're hindering yourself. *Message!*
    His ignorance is reverbed by young men with limited thinking and that is the real impact hence root of frustration. As lent Slim this opportunity, impressionable people can take from it and attempt to validate their ridiculous opinions with this piss poor article. I am more than comfortable with the fact that I, nor any woman I hope to ever call sistah (no matter her race) would NOT be the woman fit for Slimm Thug.  I hope he finds this senseless concubine with no self-worth as he described he desired. That way, he could sit his arse down, remain irrelevant and prayerfully, *Smokey from Friday voice* never. Ever ever ever. Ever ever EVER consent to an interview about Black woman for the rest of his life. Now... will all my REAL men, please stand up??
