This Has to Stop

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of opportunists trying to normalize negative behaviors. For years now we’ve been privy to all sorts of foolishness that has propagated the lie that being a rich man’s play thing is the easiest way to financial security.

...If it did, these ladies wouldn’t be whoring themselves to the TV cameras in rented luxury cars and leased homes, flaunting their “wealth” to the masses. If being a jump-off truly led to financial security, we wouldn’t need to hear about it, see it, or even know they were “escorts” to some of their city’s richest and morally questionable men (peace to Marlo). And yet, they keep trying to convince us that being little more than a sexual toy is the way to go.

Enter
The Real Mistresses of Atlanta, a visual monstrosity concocted by music producer and Pro Style Gel spokesman Memphitz. Apparently, he felt that our already overcrowded airways weren’t quite ratchet enough and he needed to drag us down yet another notch. Sensing that he could capitalize on our willingness to watch mind-numbing drama, Memphitz is currently trying to sell a show that gives us an inside look at some of Atlanta’s most in-demand mistresses (which, in the A, predictably includes a guy).


While the majority of the cast is black, the token white woman comes out guns blazing when she asks, “Who wants to f-ck a black p—sy?” and explains that black men love her … because she’s white. How cute.

Don’t get me wrong. I understand that the “other woman” has been profiting off her status for a while. In ideal mistress situations she may have gotten an apartment, a filled closet, and a few pieces of bling for her on-demand services, but in most cases, the scenario is much less glamorous, involving a bucket of chicken and gas money if she’s lucky.

You see, by constantly glamorizing this behavior and bringing it to the light, we are signaling to young women that it’s perfectly normal to sell yourself for a man’s attention so long as he gives you something of value in the process. We are telling them it’s OK to come second or third and jump to his every command so long as he breaks you off a little change in the end.

Dear God...this has got to stop.

I had an eloquent commentary all ready to go and everything, but then I saw the video for myself and was suddenly rendered speechless and horrified.

  1. My sister-in-law told me about this hot-ass mess. I threw up in my mouth.

    *sigh* And watch that shit become popular.

    1. Oh trust and believe that the same folks who can't get enough of the Real Housewives of Wherever, and Basketball 'Wives' will be watching this latest serving of train wreck with bated breath. Every. Single. Week.

      Much like at The Bar, I am NOT pressing that button.

    2. Despite the giant red bar on YouTube, I'm pretty sure this show will become popular.

      Whores and mistresses are "in" right now; the BBC had a show called "Mistresses," which America is now remaking, and Australia had a show called "Satisfaction" which centered on sex workers in an upscale brothel.

  2. Not shocked, just saddened. What is wrong this culture?

    And why is that silly ass white woman even thinking about what our vaginas look like?

    1. What is the white obsession with Black genitalia? If it's not white men obsessing over Black penises, it's white women talking about our vaginas. What is up with that????

    2. So there is an interesting exhibit currently being shown around the country called Question Bridge. It involved about 150 black men from all walks of life, from execs on Wall Street to men in prison, gay, straight, young, and old. And they pose a question, and the other men answer. Each man is alone on a video screen mounted on the wall, and there are dozens of screens, so you see both reactions and answers at the same time. They also share anecdotes from their lives.
      And one young, professional black men told a story about a white guy sitting next to him at a bar, saying a few words to him, and then leaping into "So is it true what they say about black men." The guy in the video spoke about how arrogant and intrusive the question was, and the fact that they think that they have the right to the information and to use black men as their amusement.
      He said that he told the guy that he'd have to find a really ignorant person to get an answer to that question, and he got up and walked out.

      I wish I knew. If I were in that line of work, the only vagina I'd be concerned about is mine.

    4. they are fascinated with our bodies in general. Recently on tumblr some white girl said real Africans don't have body and that if they have body hair they must have white ancestry, all the reblogs were Africans laughing at her blatant stupidity

    5. *rubs temples*

      Recently, lifeisannoying wrote a post about how some white girl told a mutual acquaintance that some black woman they both knew was "too dark to have feelings."

  3. I'm so sick of (some) white women who think they are the bee's knees because they are white despite the fact that they age worse than black women! They are so over rated!

    1. ...And let's not forget her ass shots which, by the way, aren't doing much.

    2. They age like a jug of expired milk left out in the sun. I mean, I can't even tell who is my age b/c they look so old. They smile and their faces are full of lines or their jowls sag and their hands have spots.
      But I guess it's easy to think that is sexy when both white and black men continue to chase you even with all of that obvious wear and tear.
      They keep asking me what I use on my skin and why is glows. And the ones who are my chronological peers always assume I'm really young. It is crazy how much they clearly covet the skin and the fact that it stays pretty flawless.

    3. "I can't even tell who is my age b/c they look so old."

      Agreed! My sense of ageing people is off. So used to young looking black 50 year olds that when I see a 30 year old wrinkled white woman I'm thrown off.

  4. Wow. This has to stop, indeed. I'm not fond of American reality shows but TV really doesn't need another shitty one like this. Everything has already been said, so I'll just say that I'm glad that the video has way more dislikes than likes on youtube, and that youtubers have made reaction/review video responses. It won't stop other people from watching it but at least there's some awareness.

  7. It's junk like this which is why I barely watch reality shows ,let alone TV. I don't know why they call these programs " reality' shows when there director encourages people to do crazy things.Britini took the words right out of my mouth. More exploitation of Black people. I want to give Mempitz thanks for bringing us down another notch!
