Universal Niggers

posted by on May 18 at 15:39 PM

Women of the world, I feel your pain. The mindless girls who frequently appear in a window at the corner of Myspace’s front page are for you what Steppin Fetchit was for black folks.


To put it like Alice Walker once put it, women are the niggers of the universe.

That was Yoko Ono, in 1967. Lennon/Ono had a single called "Woman is the Nigger of the World" in 1972.

i have often thought that exact thing about the ladies of howard stern, maxim, etc.

Here's the way I learned it.

Question: What's the only thing Palestinian leaders and Israeli leaders agree on?

Answer: Each other's women are "really hot."

Uhhh noooo. I think YOU'RE a better example of what Steppin Fetchit was for black folks.

Ugh. I can't deal with that dual hair color thing. Blonde in front and brown in back? Please. Don't even get me started on those roots.

Great. I hate shit like this, basically it is saying that WHITE women are as downtrodden as black MEN. Where do we Black women come in?

Well Charles did attribute the quote to Alice Walker, and while I cannot really vouch for the myspace ads in question, nobody has suggested that they only feature white women.

A lot of the way dumb and tasteless people try to make money off of the ineradicable horniness of young (and other) men is dumb, distasteful, and even cruel. But sexual politics will always be with us, while eventually, humanity will all be one race, with its Asian and African aspects obvious, while its Caucasian features barely show through. (Perhaps this puts the denigration of women as a byproduct of male desire, resentment and frustration on an even more tragic plane because race is mutable.) On an unconnected note, hopefully there will still be a world with a functioning ecosystem to feed us when that time is here. Let's get rid of religion and we can all probably have a really good time.

And 'Audre Lorde', if you're gonna say something like that, you gotta sign it with your REAL NAME.

Quote from Audre Lorde
1934 - 1992

"As I have said elsewhere, it is not the destiny of black America to repeat white America's mistakes. But we will, if we mistake the trappings of success in a sick society for the signs of a meaningful life. If black men continue to do so, defining "femininity" in its archaic European terms, this augurs ill for our survival as a people, let alone our survival as individuals. Freedom and future for blacks do not mean absorbing the dominant white male disease. . . As black people, we cannot begin our dialogue by denying the oppressive nature of male privilege. And if black males choose to assume that privilege, for whatever reason, raping, brutalizing, and killing women, then we cannot ignore black male oppression. One oppression does not justify another."

Perhaps ironic, Charles, as it's been you posting to Slog so many photos of half-clothed women from around the world solely because you find them sexually attractive. Who does that make you in this analogy?

Posted by Davey Moore | May 19, 2007 9:59 AM

OH! @14: Touche. Charles, you confuse me, but I read you anyway because sometimes you're funny.

Posted by Katelyn | May 19, 2007 10:49 AM

They're no different than the bikini clad girls in the chat line ads in the back of The Stranger. I highly doubt blondes with model bodies are waiting to talk to me (ESPECIALLY me.) But there's no law against profiting off of stupidity and/or hormones so I have no problem with any of it.

Posted by Jason Josephes | May 19, 2007 2:15 PM

Wow. I can't imagine anyone getting away with a statement like that. Does ECB know you are talking about women this way?

Posted by montex | May 19, 2007 2:20 PM

It's funny, Myspace and it's advertisers know I'm a fag, but I get the same "True" ads as Charles does. What's even funnier is that these women are so obnoxious I catch myself staring at them. In regards to the racial debate, I can only add that in the graduation speech she gave, Oprah told her audience, "Never sell out!". Oprah the oppressor.
