Sex & the City

11 04 2008

I’ll admit this up front: I watch Sex & the City.

I don’t watch it, however, because I enjoy the silly comedic moments or the idiot-savant romantic insights of Carrie fucking Bradshaw. Instead, I watch Sex & the City because after working 8 hours in the office and up to another 5 hours at home and spending another 3 hours sewing beads on my dance regalia, there are only three things that can put a smile on my face:

  1. Sex. I don’t have a girlfriend and I’m too lazy for one night stands, so this is out.
  2. Pancakes. Under the imminent threat of diabeetus and weight gain, I usually don’t eat bread after noon if I can help it.
  3. Self-destructive behavior of unreasonable white women. This is the living definition of Sex & the City.

Figure 1: Vaginitus Douchebitchicus Caucasus Maximus Quadruplicus.

I was perfectly content to watch the four unattractive hags* that star in the show blunder their way through life from now until the Rapture. The general unhappiness of these women made me happy enough to overlook the implausibility of four essentially sociopathic women all having very successful careers that involve – get this – dealing with other people.

Then I had an epiphany: Sex & the City is a white woman’s visual manifesto of classism and racism.

For now, I’m going to skip the classism part because if I were to contemplate it long enough, I will lose my shit. So instead I’ll just focus on the flagrant racism in this motherfucking show.

In my memory, there were four black characters who had speaking parts that lasted more than ten damn seconds – and this is where the racism starts. Sex & the City’s conspicuously unrealistic absence of black people in NEW YORK CITY is surpassed only by that of the partial-birth abortion of a show called ‘Friends’. The popularity among white women of these shows combined with the popularity of New York shows us exactly what white women are looking for:

Figure 2: Fuckers.

But let’s get beyond that and look at the few black characters that were in the show.

Brother and Sister: there was an episode where Samantha (the village bicycle of the show) decided to date a black guy. I can’t remember what he did for a living, but I’m pretty sure I remember it involving sports, and he was very successful. He was an all around good guy.

This man had a sister – a very attractive black woman who, I shit you not, spent the entire show yelling, waving her neck, and snapping her fingers at Samantha loudly and in inappropriate venues telling her that she didn’t want to see “another good brother taken by a white girl.” In the end, it was actually the MAN who capitulated to his sister’s wishes and broke up with Samantha.

  • What black people see: a white woman taking yet another of the endangered species of good, eligible black men, and the sister rightly getting her brother to come to his senses.
  • What white people see: domineering racist ghetto negro wench hates white people for no good reason, and her weak willed negro man-child of a brother is too much of a pussy to stand up to her. Black women are crazy, black men are sissies.

Navy Boy: in one episode, the four Itchy Vaginas come across a bunch of model-worthy male sailors wearing Navy jumpers walking around aimlessly in midtown, because apparently this shit happens all the fucking time. The sailors invite the IVs to some party that night. The main character, Carrie, spends the whole time at the party dancing with some black pretty boy sailor from Louisiana who looks like a shrunken-down version of The Rock wearing a fruity sailor outfit.

At the end of the night, Carrie and The Pebble are talking outside the lounge. Sounding like a lost puppy, the guy asks her, in nearly as many words, “can I please come home with you tonight?” Carrie, who has had uncountably many one night stands with dudes straight out of hotchickswithdouchebags.com, rejects this guy – opting instead to go home and, for all I know, masturbate to videos of black men being attacked with dogs and fire hoses during the March to Montgomery.

  • What black people see: black man far and away out of Carrie’s league gets rejected by her for no particular reason at all. Sheer racism (or comeuppance, since overly attractive black men should not be passing up black women to fuck with white girls that look like an incarnate Australopithecus exhibit.)
  • What white people see: horny black navy boy is on shore leave and wants to invade the Antarctic. Carrie, who is pure and white as the driven snow, rejects his coontastical advances and remains ever unpenetrated by the black torpedo.

Sports Man: GASP! A RECURRING BLACK CHARACTER! That’s right everybody, Sex & the City featured for several episodes a dark, intelligent, extremely well-paid, highly educated black man with more moral character than Jesus himself…dating Miranda, aka the fugliest of member of the cast, for several weeks.

FIgure 3: I saw her face, and my dick evaporated.

Sports man is called ‘Sports Man’ because he’s an orthopedist for the Knicks. This makes sense because black men can’t be successful unless it either directly or obliquely involves sports. Miranda is constantly getting jealous of Sports Man because all the white cheerleaders on the Knicks are all over his jock. But he remains ever faithful to this red headed sea monster, eventually even popping the ‘L’ word on her. She freaks out, and breaks up with him to make babies with Woody Allen’s ugly twin.

  • What black people see: a ferociously attractive, successful, and loyal black man gets his heart farted on by the last living child of the corn in a combination of bullshit, racism, and karma.
  • What white people see: the Superman of black people is not good enough even for the ugliest, most judgmental, type A ho-bag in the entire Itchy Vagina Ensemble. Black people are shit. High five!

I can’t fucking take it anymore. It’s time for me to drive to NYC and scalp Sarah Jessica Parker.

Figure 4: Maybe there’s a fourth thing that can put a smile on my face…

*My father hates Sarah Jessica Parker and everything about her. If you ever meet the terrifying man that is my father and you want to immediately make him like you – insult Sarah Jessica Parker. If you want him to LOVE you, call her an “intolerable horse-faced pussy smuggler who belongs in a zoo rather than on television”.

i’m a HUGE fan of “Sex in The City” (which my sister always makes fun of me by saying I should be wathing “Girlfriends” instead) – but I still found this post HILARIOUS. I often wondered why there weren’t many/any black people on the show but this didn’t/doesn’t/hasn’t stopped me from watching and enjoying it. Love the part of the post that said what black people saw vs what white people saw…again THE TRUTH.

p.s. black guy #1 that was dating Samantha was an A&R and the black guy dating Miranda was Blair Underwood.

THANK YOU Chris. Now I can finally get some shit done today while laughing myself silly over “last living child of the corn” and “pussy smuggler” and what may be my fave, “village bicycle”. Honestly, Carrie and Miranda were the Dickinators, weren’t they? Thank god that the writers never managed to put together an accidental threesome with them and Mr. Big.

I always hated this show and Friends!! How can you tape a show in NYC and there not be ANY black people. Did they shoo them off the sets? Maybe they had security direct all folks who did not pass a paper bag test to walk on the other side of the street….

11 04 2008
knaturalbeauty

wow. I always had a love/hate relationship with Sex and the City, for those same reasons. I hate how they blatantly stuck Black characthers in there, probably just to shut us up. Blair Underwood wouldn’t date a mis-shapened redhead, sorry. Unrealistic. Sarah Jessica Parker looks like a foot, as said by Peter Griffin on Family Guy. That chick Charlotte has a real-life sextape by-the-way.

side note: I appreciate that you take time to write these posts, considering all the things you do (or claim to do) :)
you do need a Black girlfriend; she’ll not only take care of 1 & 2, but maybe even help sew beads.

I always wondered how in the hell they would put Blair Underwood on that show and have the audacity to have him date Miranda, the fugliest one as you so well put, who has an infant son.. and then fall in love w/ her to boot.

I can’t stand that damn show because like Peter Griffin said, SJP looks like a foot. Her character is a whiny pain in the ass. As far as i know the one who can never find a man (Charlotte) is a PITA as well.. Samantha is a slore and who cares about Miranda..

At least they had THAT many black people on the show though. Friends only had one, and she was on like 2 episodes..

Sister Toldja

BRILLIANT! Bravo, bravo!

I don’t think the Black men were put on there to appease Black viewers. 1) no one gives a fuck about Black viewers. 2) Most of the Black viewers were women and the LAST thing we were wishing for was more fugly White woman on Black man action!

@Knatural: THE Blair Underwood is married to a sister. But “A Blair Underwood type” would DEFINITELY date a fugly lesbionic chick like Miranda. A lot of brothers would gladly break their chins trying to motorboat her non existant titties.

Jennifer Hudson is in the SITC movie. She slimmed down a bit from Dreamgirls and from what I have seen, rocks a great wardrobe in the film. She will still be a “big girl” compared to those anorexic trollops and I hope she is not the “sassy Black woman”.

i don’t know what’s funnier the fact that you called them “itchy vaginas” or the pussy smuggler comment.

lmao.

my mother hates her too. everytime she sees a commercial, or an ad for her (ugly) clothes she grimaces. HARD.
and then makes random comments about people resembling baboon’s asses and such.

i actually enjoy sex and the city despite the lack of black people on there. for some reason it may me smile to see women i would never meet, living the life i would never lead, wearing shoes i would only be able to afford if i sold my ass and my first born.

blame imperalism. i do.

LOL… New York is diverse, but it is very segregated/racist. The only time you do see black people in the village, at mommy and me, on the upper east side, or any other place they frequent, they are nannies or doormen. The one’s walking past get looked at funny. When you bulidings in white areas, rich white women will wait for you to press the elevator button because they assume youre the clerk.

This was hilarious! Evaporating Penis? Prize of the year!

I am a huge Sex and the City fan, and can not wait for the movie! Me and my girls have been planning to dress up and get drinks the weekend it opens.

I did notice the covert racism on the show, but for my viewing pleasure I just pretend it doesn’t exist. Its so much easier that way. Sometimes, being black and constantly aware of my blackness is tiring. Sometimes its nice to identify with people on other levels, and S&TC helped me to realize thet women of all races are going through the same bull.

Anywhoo, I thought the sailor dude was latino. Maybe he’s “Creole,” like so many people on here claim to be? (And isnt that just another fancy way to skirt around the fact that they’ve got black blood and nappy roots anyway? )

@ Grimm, I don’t think NY is that racially segregated/diverse. I’ve been black people every where in NYC and the white people don’t usually pay us any mind. I live in a suburb outside outside of NYC that prides itself on racial diversity, but clearly every group (even down to religious groups) lives in a specific area. And there are definitely places that I won’t even venture to because I don’t have time for yt giving me the side eye.

A city I think that definitely fits that bill though is Boston. I visited a friend there and I was like “where are all the black people?” They were far and few to be found.

Tamara-

TOO TRUE! I live in Boston and can’t believe its so segregated, even though I’ve lived here my entire life.

I came home about a year ago, after graduating, and I know that if I want to get ahead professionally, this is where I need to be. As far as socially, black people are iced out, and I know I’ve got to move if I want to have more than a handful of places to visit on a saturday night. Or if I want to raise kids who have any sense of self pride.

Its good to see you folks talking about DC though, cuz Ive been thinking about makin that move in a year or so. As much as you complain about love and the PG County, you dont know what I would give to be able to leave my house and not feel like the only black person in the whole damn sate!

My dad, being the Masochist that he is, watched SATC all the time. And he would look at it in disbelief: “Sarah Jessica Parker is not sexy! She looks like a horse that fucked a cockroach!” is what he would say.

The guy that played that creole sailor was Daniel Sunjata. He is Black/German/Irish.

I HATE HATE HATE ‘Friends’. I thought that show was a blatant rip-off of ‘Living Single’, so I could never really get into that show. Matter of fact, I think both shows were created by the same studio, Warner Brothers. Jennifer Anniston looks like a beat-up cocker-spaniel to me too.

I loved Fraiser though. All the snobbery on that show cracked me up.

I have to confess, one of my favorite YT shows is still “Roseanne”, well at least the 4th-7th seasons before Roseanne’s egotistical ass took over and totally ruined the show.

Roseanne was that ish…

Friends =/= Living Single, i never got that from the show… where are the similarities?

Hmm.. two guys that live upstairs.. two guys that live next door..
One of the guys from upstairs/next do fall in love/marry the girl from downstairs/across the hall..

That’s all I can come up with… so far.. but let me know what you got.

“As ugly as everyone think SJP is, she does have a nice body…”

Her body is absolutely atrocious. She looks like a survivor of Andersonville. Sex with her would be like making love to a bag of charcoal. The girl is just too damn skinny.

Not to say that I dig fat chicks; I personally like mine right in between. But in the words of The Devil:

“Fat chicks are like scooters. They’re fun to ride, but you don’t want your buddies to catch you on one.”

If you want to see REAL segregation, come down to SC.

We dont even PRETEND to be racially diverse. There’s “private clubs” blacks and “others” (which means hispanics because we have little else) cant even get into.

Which leads me back to my natural hair comments…

Kristin Davis/Charlotte did always have a decent ass for a white girl, and from those photos her ex-boyfriend released, she isn’t afraid to step up to the mic, but that’s neither here nor there, cause she seems annoying.

@ Lady: To me, the similarities between the two shows came from folks in their 20’s finding their way in NYC. Living Single had more of a female perspective than Friends. They just seemed to tweak the formula just so, but I could definitely see it.

Point of correction (because I’m a SITC nerd / fan, despite having some serious beefs with the show, and they’re basically what you have outlined above):

“male sailors wearing Navy jumpers walking around aimlessly in midtown, because apparently this shit happens all the fucking time.”

No, not all the time, just during Fleet Week, which is when that particular episode takes place.

Point of clarification:

the guy asks her, in nearly as many words, “can I please come home with you tonight?”

The guy was also like 22. I stopped wanting to f*ck 22 when I was 24. Young is not sexy. Desperate and young even less so.

I’ll also vouch for the world that SITC inhabits. NYC really is that segregated that in some parts of town you do not see black folks who aren’t on the periphery if they are there at all. (Now that I think about it, what’s up with the now-cancelled “Girlfriends”? No Asians or Latins on a show set in L.A.?)

That said, they still could have done better than the finger snapping sister complaining about white girls taking all the ‘good brothas.’

Okay, I am now taking my overly analytical a** back to my corner.

That Blair Underwood and Miranda thing did not shock me at all. I have seen some fine as hell black men with some ugly pinched looking white women all over New York – that shit is an epidemic in park slope – the mecca of interracial couples.

And yes there are plenty of places in Ny where the caste system is in full effect and you only see people of color as janitors and nannies, so in the world they rolled in, that is true.

HAHA nice post, some of the girls I know swear by this retarded show and move to NY thinking that life is like that – it sets up chicks for a horrible reality check.

Things I hate:
1) As mentioned, no diversity in their casting.
2) These girls have high-paying jobs, but are never in the office.
3) Their outrageously large apartments – yes, i’m jealous.
4) Constant plug of named brands I have never heard before.
5) In general, gives a horrible perspective on what life is really like in the Apple.

i live in boston..roxbury to be exact…and we are here…but boston is has always been segregated…although now, roxbury, which was once primarily a “black”area is starting to diversify…every day i see some white person jogging or walking their dog through the neighborhood…

now if you want to talk about where the black ain’t…i lived in phoenix, az for 14 years…( i just moved back to boston last year)…when i would see a black person, i would beeline over just to say “hello, you’re not alone”…

yes, there are black people in boston..i should know because i ride the bus home with them and am subjected to all that loud talking and the low riding pants every day and night…for goodness sakes, a brother got on the bus last night with a chicken wing hanging out of his mouth!

that is all…

Chris, really. I need you to be with me so you can teach me more about my Native American heritage and stuff. The sex will just be a extra… :)

I have never seen SATC. I have no desire to see any episodes nor the movie. I couldn’t really get into Girlfriends, either, I guess I just couldn’t relate to any of the characters. I did like to stare at Khalil Kane, though, I’ve loved him since he was Raheem. :)

What was I saying? Oh, yeah. A sistah DOES watch Will and Grace (I wanna be Karen when I grow up) and Frasier, though. And I will stop what I am doing to watch Living Single (which was the inspiration for Friends, IMO) and A Different World.

OK, alright. I love sex and the city, sue me, I’m an itchy vagina too! (your def of a woman with issues) And as in many cases of successful white shows, they invariably always imulate a previous black show or imulate black people. It’ s like Bill Clinton being the first black president.(Let just chill out). The only modern show that was really about white people was Seinfeld and I am not sure that was really about white people or something black made white again. Anyway, it is not just SATC, but 90 % of all media in american caters to white society. Television being number 1 in visual consumption, next cable, magazine, newspapers and radio! BTW, they neva eva eva show that episode when Samantha is dating that black man, so if you don’t have it in on dvd, you wont see it.

LMAO! SATC was my favorite show when it was on-air. Now I can’t stand it for these very reasons.

I couldn’t get into SATC because I lived on campus in college. The dorms didn’t get HBO; the only place on campus that did was the convent. Watching SATC with nuns is…awkward, and I couldn’t figure out why they were laughing at the sex jokes.

Good gracious I missed alot. I do agree… Sarah Jessica Parker used to look good… but age has been far from nice to her. And I cannot get with her voice… I dunno what it is… but the whiney feline sounds that escape her mouth cause the hair on my neck to stand up.

I’m waiting for the crossover movie where Sex and the City meets Entourage. Good god that would be a mess.

I loved Sex and the City when it was on and I have the pink velvet case with every episode and extras…I like Carrie’s character and I really don’t think Miranda is the ugliest one. I think that goes for miss Sarah Jessica Parker and her horseface with the ginormous wart.

Although, to be honest, most women go through a time in their lives when they are exactly like one of those women, black/white/purple whatever.

Jocolate

Damn, as much ho’ing as was going on there I thought there’d be more blacks than that. No temporary black girlfriend storyline at all I suppose.

SITC’s brunette isnt bad but I never got with that show or Friends as a black male. Some of the (mostly white/asian) girls around Houston who havent actually been to NYC really do think thats how life is.

I remember leaving the underground bbq joint at U of Houston w/a friend a few yrs back when a group of young Asians ran past us towards the tv. We thought something major was happening: war or famous death-related, Yao got hurt or something.

No, it just turns out that the group of 5 women and 2 guys wanted to catch the opening credit of Friends. I stood there amazed wondering what the chances were of a similar group of whites doing the same over a show about 6 Asian 20-somethings in NYC.

Aisha Tyler on Friends doesnt count, I saw the promos & an interview she did proudly proclaiming to be “the 1st Afro-American love interest on Friends.” I think her character was ping-ponged between Greg Kinnear & one of the regular cast. I guess she’s the ‘go-to-gal’ for such things now.

Many of the shows on US tv are adapted (if not straight ripped off foreign tv), I also thought Friends looked a bit Living Single-ish.

“Although, to be honest, most women go through a time in their lives when they are exactly like one of those women, black/white/purple whatever.”

Oh Cheese and Rice I hope not. I remember when that sess pool of a show first came on the tele, I asked my friends to shoot me if my life ever turned into that in my 30s. Loveless and jumping from bed to bed with one crazy bastard to the next, no thanks. And if the fantasy life isn’t crazy enough on a daily basis those girls go on long walks through the city wearing those super high heeled shoes. That’s why the men are so confused about how real life should be.

Not sure if it was mentioned but the chicks on Girlfriends weren’t that cute either. Sure Joan has a huge ass, but those bug eyes are scary. Maya’s unbeweavably bony, and Toni’s attitude made her ugly. Lynn (sp?) was the cutest, albeit the craziest. Ok that’s enough of being shallow and judgmental for now.

It seems like any show with 3 or more white women under 40 is unbearable to watch. Although I love Designing Women and The Golden Girls.

Frasier did have one black woman that was in more than one episode-Kim Coles from Living Single. She played his co-host and of course she talked too damn much.

Glad the party is still rolling, cause I may be staying in tonight. I’s tired.

Girlfriends was HORRIBLE! They had some great story lines, but the writing was soooo painfully bad. Maya was just…a mess. Saying “Gurrrrrl” before everything and “okaaaaaay?” afterwards does not make it funny. The only thing I liked about that show was Maya’s husband, who was cute and Lynn, the Lisa Bonet/Denise Huxtable for the next generation. Oh, and Toni calling Maya’s baby everything under the sun but his name was funny. Beyond that, bleeeeech.

Living Single was and is the shiznit and I like Friends too, even though it stole LS’s premise and eventually, it’s timeslot. Kyle Barker was the gayyest man on televison before Queer Eye. I loved how they acted like that wasn’t the case. He was a CHOIR DIRECTOR for Godsakes!

First and foremost – unattractive people might have sex, but SITC does not portray everyday people. I didn’t look at the name but whoever wrote it was on some narcotics. Four homely, mediocre-to-bad looking women do not befriend eachother and then have copious amounts of sex with the entirety of the white male population of NYC, save for a few sports-related black men every three seasons. Put down the bottle of valium and open thine eyes, please.

Secondly – the notion by grimm that “show me a beautiful woman and I’ll show you a man that’s tired of sleeping with her” is completely baseless and nearly 100% false. I happen to be in a relationship that has achieved engagement and will be approaching marriage within the next year or so with what I consider a Dime Piece. I don’t think I need to get into details of what goes on in my personal life, but grimm…you’re wrong dude :)

oh Anmarie… SMH you are too much.

I am happy with my side job (paid internship) with a very sucessful entertainment lawyer (will not say more for privacy), because my real job (you know what it is) is my passion. And I get paid vey well ($5000-$15000 per gig minus agency fees) for it. I can work as much or as little as I want, and get to travel around the world during the seasons (and between NYC and LA to see my ma), and still manage to pay my high NYC rent by myself.

Don’t knock me for doing something that relates to what I’m interested in doing once I’m older and tired of the industry. I have my whole life to chain myself to a desk. Would it be better if I were a hostess at Mr. Chow instead?

And BTW you shouldn’t look down on people who are career secretaries. You don’t know their stories. Sucess and happiness isn’t measured by your job title.

@Angry
with 1 in every 4 girls 18-24 being infected with at least one STD and girls becoming sexually active at the average age of 16, is it not plausible that an unmarried woman who has been actively dating for, say 20 years, would have like 42 sex partners? The show was popular because many women could relate. Maybe those Evangelists are right *shrug*.
And with half of all black girls having an STD and AIDS being the leading cause of death in african american women age 14-24, I’d say its safe to assume that black people are just as sexually active.
And finally, that is a popular saying. I’ve heard it. You’ve heard it. It must be based on some truth-even if you don’t think so.

However i do look down on beautiful women who manage to be soooooo boooring in bed, men get tired of sleeping with them. Not you, just in general. I’m just saying.

Angry ver. 3.2 (Beta)

Grimm:

No it isn’t plausible at all. To generalize the entire female population based on a statistic is similar to making an absolutist statement, also sometimes referred to as an assumption. You know what happens when you assume.

The show was popular because it allowed ordinary people to live vicariously through others – the same reason Star Magazine, the National Enquirer, and E! television are all popular. Everyday people with regular 9-to-5’s can’t relate to the 30 to 60 minutes of seemingly endless nightlife that occurs in that damn show; people feel like they can live their fantasy lives by watching and reading about those of celebrities.

I never heard that saying that you said before, until this evening when you wrote it. Also, for you to be claiming that 50% of black women are carrying some sort of STD or STI, I would expect you to cite some sort of journal or scientific research report. Unfortunately you didn’t do so, which leads me to believe it plausible that you pulled every statistic you named from deep inside your large intestine.

To the post… I had to get up and leave a few times because it was too damn funny. I couldn’t finish it. You have to be kidding me that the what I consider below average to mediocre middle aged white woman doesn’t try to go after her pipe dream? The whole show’s story got throw out of whack when Nicolette Sheridan did the monday night football opening with T.O. Please, little white girl with big black dude is all their fantasy. Extra points if it gets their white supremacist daddy riled up. Tv’s NY (SITC, Friends, Fraiser) is by NO MEANS anywhere near a 20% representation of the real NY. Even in the richest high tower parts.

Besides, Sarah Jessica Parker, who is SUPPOSED to be the “sexiest” of the four (that red head made me wanna pee myself. That was terrible.), and I don’t even want to have a dinner conversation with her. Get the fuck out of here with that trash.

I am so fucking drunk and it’s all the Admrial’s fault.

I drank 1/3 a bottle of Kettel One. I feel like an American Soldier at the end of the Little Bighorn.

My white friend tries to talk to an Ethiopian girl and she claims she has a boyfriend. Six minutes later I walk by her and she grabs me by the arm, asking me why I haven’t talked to her. This enrages me. The room is spinning and I have no idea what the hell is going on – except that she just dissed my friend. I tell her that I’m going to perform the next Moon landing, and I need to concentrate. Please get off me before your poison ruins my ability to pilot the landing craft. I walk away.

There is a large man standing in front of the bathroom door. He looks like Earvin “Magic” Johnson. I ask him “hey man…what the hell ever happened to your show?” He looks at me with a modicum of disgust and confusion. I don’t particularly care, because I somehow know I am faster than him. I walk into a bathroom stall to find a girl giving a man head over a toilet. I say something to the effect of “don’t forget to wash your hands.”

I walk out of the bathroom area. A white woman is staring at me, and I’m pretty sure she’s thinking about stealing my land. She says “hey! I’m [insert white sounding name here]“. I reply “Greetings. We are Magnus Amplificus.” She is not amused.

I go back to our table. My friend Akshat is wearing a pink shirt, and I tell him that he looks like a giant Indian vagina. He calls me a ‘spear chucker’. This amuses me roundly.

Now I am in my condo, listening to Miles Davis’ Blue in Green and trying not to fuck up my spelling. Loyalty to my friends and my mistrust of white women has cost me pussy again. I am fairly sure that I will die without ever having sex again, and yet…I feel an odd sense of inner peace.

Why in the fucking hell am I telling everyone this?

Peace.

Chris that Ethiopian chick can go to hell. I noted the same issue and was equally pissed upon noticing her bullshit.

The highlight of the night was after I relieved myself and attempted to wash my hands when I encountered a pair of cave women standing 5’10″+ (one blonde and one brunnette) in front of the dual sinks outside of the multigender stalls. The blone was steadily chit chatting to the blonde about how there were not high roller dudes in the place (aka not washing her hands) while the brunnette was fixing her earrings. Both were not utilizing the sinks and BOTH took note of me standing behind them waiting to use cleanse my hands after doing a number 1. What set me over the top was when I saw the blonde roll her eyes at my presence in the mirror and continued on with her utterly useless conversation. Thats when my patience diminished… and considering the fact that I was drunk, the elbow I jabbed into her arm to make my way past the blonde chick was probably even harder than I remember it. My ears were ringing, but I do remember her making some statement that included the words “fucking asshole.”

I didn’t care at all. My hands were being washed. But then it gets better.

Not a split second after the water began splashing onto my palms, I head the unmistakable voice of an irritated black woman (possibly with an attitude problem) announce… “EXCUSE ME!” from behind. That was when I looked in the mirror and saw a MOST irritated pair of very attractive black women staring at what was probably very terrified blonde woman. The Brunnette was still looking into the mirror… but had anyone seen how big her eyes were… they would have wished to have a camcorder to record the most epic event. The haste that the two white women used to vacate the remaining sink was absolutely exceptional. Meanwhile, upon arrival at the sink the two black women were MOST friendly to me and we engaged in a very small conversation on rude people who were raised wrong. Within about fifteen seconds, I wished them well and went on my way. They were the MOST friendly black women I encountered in there and further made me love my people. Big up ladies. All black women, big up.

Meanwhile… Chris isn’t the only person drunk. I have no clue how I drove an hour from Rosslyn to Severn with the intoxication level I had. Sheesh. Shame on me.

Notblonde… I guess you aren’t married… and have fallen into the trap you speak of?

Sex in the City is just a justification for white women to act promiscuous. Period. Just like Ferris Beullers Day off is an excuse for white children to lie, cheat, steal, destroy property, and impersonate the law without getting in trouble for it.

I almost pooped my pants reading that.

number 2: Mr. Smith says, “Tv’s NY (SITC, Friends, Fraiser) is by NO MEANS anywhere near a 20% representation of the real NY. Even in the richest high tower parts.”

The pair of ya are grade A silly fools. And that’s what i love about ya.

AF I’ve been trying to tell you black women are dope and friendly unless of course you’re rude and/ annoyning. (most of us have a horrible speak your mind gene that translates into “angry black woman” but it’s really just saying what other people are thinking)

Chris the girl was probably hoping that you’d talk to her all night, but didn’t want to hurt your friend’s feelings when he stepped first. So If you say you have a boyfriend (not that I agree with the lying) you can reject someone with out actually rejecting THEM. She may have had your whole future planned in her mind 10 minutes b4 white boy hollered.

Chris: You’re right, in college I over heard a few white women talking about the plot to take catch Native American men drunk and vunerable in the club. You just remember that when you’re out there.

I so have done that before: “You know we know that y’all do NOT wash your hands as a rule. So can you please fucking move?”

Ethopian girls in DC kinda have their heads gassed up, partiall because so many dudes sweat them. They are pretty, but sheesh! A lot of Ethiopian guys would try to holler at me (people thought I was Ethio sometimes and my best guy friend definitely could pass) but a lot of them were very creepy and leery and yellow eyed and no.

Um, what IS it with white people that don’t wash their nasty germ ridden hands in a public restroom?? EVERY time I have ever witnessed this disgusting non-habit it has been a uh, non-minority that doesn’t avail themselves of the cootie removal facility.

EW.

I’m telling you, it must start early too because my son’s friends have to be almost threatened when they’re here. “Can I have some candy?” “Not until you wash your hands.” “But they’re clean….” “Not clean enough to put in the candy jar, they’re not.” The only child that doesn’t have to be reminded just happens to be the one that has actual pigmentation in his skin. Sheeeeeesh.

I don’t know Esdotto and Mr. Smith about that top 2% (know idea about this number).

In highschool my girl used to work as a nanny afterschool for these stanky flithy rich white people. I mean the wife didn’t lift one finger to work yet she had a nanny. So of course taking interest in the two smart, well spoken, inner city black girls (amazing :-O) they’d invite us to several functions and parties in the Hamptons (what displays of wealth). Damn it, I was a puppet in their theater. Not to fear by junior year I stop hanging with them after all tons of yummy free food wasn’t worth my soul.

In their world the only people of color were the help. They lived in a classist bubble devoid of color.
So really when these shows leave out the color, it’s the white people hiding their dependency on servitude.

Esdotto= S*Dot, I presume? LOL!

Anmarie- Excellent perspective. Maybe because I never hung in multi-culti circles since preschool, I have a skewed perception. But I always assumed that if one were to try and holler at a member of another race, they knew they were taking a chance that said person may not date interracially. I always tell White guys that I have a boyfriend. I’m not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, nor do I think it’s appropriate to say ‘I don’t date white men’. That can lead to a long convo that I wouldn’t want to have in a bar, club or party.

Or like you said. she may have already peeped Chris and liked him better. I don’t like that “Why haven’t you tried to talk to me” shit. Sounds like one of those wack lines from Cosmo. When said magazine suggested that a “hot” way to get a guys attention at a party was to grab him and kiss him squarely on the mouth. I knew they weren’t talking to me.

12 04 2008
Sister Toldja

That’s word as well, Anmarie. Like I said before, I don’t expect there to be Black people on Sex In The City because if you did a show about my personal life, all the White people would be waiters, passerby and fellow bar/store/restauraunt/gym patrons. There may be a “very special episode” where I get drunk and yell something at a gentrifier.

number 2: Mr. Smith says, “Tv’s NY (SITC, Friends, Fraiser) is by NO MEANS anywhere near a 20% representation of the real NY. Even in the richest high tower parts.”

Fraiser was in Seattle.. not that that changes your point.. but you know us black folks can’t resist correcting someone..

There are a lot of yt folks in the company I work for, and nan one of them take the time to pass some soap and water over their nasty ass hands when leaving the rest room *even* when they do a #2 which disgusts me to no end. Here I am pumping out the paper towel before i even wash my hands, lather my hands front and back, take that paper towel, dry my hands, use it to turn the water off and open the door.. and they look at me like *I’m* the crazy one. I’ve seen both my bosses come straight from the stall, check their hair/clothes, sniff and then walk out. These are the same dirty hags who come in with ‘homebaked goods’ offering us some. I take one to be polite, and then when they leave my cube i toss that fucker in the garbage. If they’re like that at work God only knows wtf they do at home. This is also why i avoid pot lucks at work..

Unless your Diddy or someone like him, if a white person invites you to the Hamptons you’re bound to be some kind of experiment/play thing for them and their friends. They’ll ask where you’re from, you say some where urban like ‘The Bronx’ in my case and they’ll get all wide eyed and say ‘Ohh, now how was that growing up?’. You will not get your urban thrills through me yt. Besides, seeing how some of them live (see: waste food/money/time/engergy) makes me sick.

So sue me I was 15 I said I caught on later. But yeah wastful isn’t the word. Mounds and mounds of uneaten food. At this Christmas party there was a huge pile of goody bags for the kids, each containing 5 dollar bills. One shrewd little rich boy figured this out and began collecting bills shamelessly from other kids bags when they weren’t looking. I learned a few lessons that about the rich yts this day.

I always thought that show is horrible and I always doubted the intelligence of those that enjoy the show. Friends is pure shit as well. At least on Seinfeld (a far superior comedy that is still funny after watching it 200 times) you saw New York..all kinds of different nationalities and various recurring characters throughout every episode.

I would like to see that Charlotte sex tape tho jus for curiousity’s sake

I enjoyed the show. It made white women look whorish and silly.

@ Toldja: you are correct haha.

the 2% comes from the term “wealthiest 2%” which is synonymous with “wealthiest 1%.” Since i haven’t spent any time with Gates, or Buffet, i didn’t want to use the latter and be corrected by the nitpicking Negroes that frequent these blogs.

I, too, have been to the Hamptons, and to some of those tier 1 Manhattan nightclubs during my undergrad. I stand by my statement. Based on my experience, their sex lives are just as lame as the average person’s.

I am not ignorant enough to assume that all rich whites are accepting of other races, but I did see a great many that were.

nothing has caught me ‘soapwise’ since dominique devereux and joan collins in dynasty.. i have the boxed sets when i need a fix.. nothing comes close…
i have a healthy respect for the wayans fam.. and have caught the hughleys when at friends houses.. hughley is cool.. i kind of like half and half.. but these are all kids shows… ooh and two and a half men makes me chuckle too..
these shows are well written because kids are really fussy – it’s either funny or not…. this is ignored for adults… writers should take note..
most of hollywood’s writers should have been culled in the writers strike.. they are blind to their audience…

I know London you’re right. Besides i don’t pose a threat to anyone. I don’t drive and I’ve never hit thing while in motion but my own ass on roller blades.

OMG! I love House, I can watch his cranky ass solve problems all day. That;s good American programming.

@London

I love love love House, but I hate how angry Omar Epps is. I mean all the characters have their nuances with me, but damn brother must you be so angry all the time.

I also love Psych because Dule Hill is my boo for life, and it’s incredibly funny. The bits I have caught of Two and Half Men that I caught were funny too, but I never know when it comes on.

But my real obsession is with The Office. I heart that show forever and always. Matter of fact, let me go watch it online now.

12 04 2008

Question: were ALL the women on the show hoes? I know Samantha was and I know Charlotte wasn’t. I don’t recall Old Uglyface having a lot of jumpoffs and that leaves Carrie. Was Carrie a hoe? (I didn’t watch enough to be 100% sure and I am also curious about what the popular definition of hoe is these days).

Omar Epps is mad on House because of his superior doctoring skills and intellect, and the lack of responsibility that the rest of the cast (caucasian) seem to show when dealing with patients. It’s good television.

house is the don.. love omar epps’s character.. he doesn’t strike me as angry.. the male australian doctor is a pussy.. he comes off to me a whiny…. which would make omar epps character a bit more ballsy in my mind?.. maybe..

and @ anmarie.. the final comment wasn’t at you… you go girl on your blades.. i gave those up after i busted my tailbone landing on grass (strategic and tactical fall).. am too old for that stuff and have bills.. (am sounding like my mother so had better go now…)

Who ever does the writing for House is my hero. Hugh Laurie’s personality and ability to really get into the character helps phenomenally, but the writing… Omar Epps can be a little annoying on the show, but IMO it’s for good reason.

I see I’m totally late for this discussion, but I must say I love Sex and the City. Now, let me say that I just discovered the show last year thanks to TBS airing it every night of the week; but I appreciated the show from a ‘colorblind’ aspect in that there are alot of successful women in the world who go through similar experiences when it comes to men. All in all, I must say the post was quite funny and I’ll add that “foot” remark to my mental library when it comes to insults for SJP. BTW-the movie comes and the end of May. :-)

i respect chapelle so much for bowing out of his show at the height of his success because of a sense of responsibility to his people. i think our generation last lost the concept of “there’s some things that you just don’t do/say” around white folk – and this example with the Klan, or Imus are perfect examples of why you can’t tell them fools shit.

this white i work with is absolutely enthralled with the “stuff educated black people like,” site and has OD’d on the number of contributions he’s made to the site in trying to classify “educated” blacks. he event went so far as to ask me, “don’t educated black people like barbeque chicken dinners?” obviously looking puzzled, i was like, “wha..?” to which my other co-worker (also black) says, “you mean, ‘cookouts?'” enthusiastically, he replies, “YES! cookouts! well, wait – thought cookouts were something uneducated black people liked…educated black people like barbeque chicken dinners…with wine and stuff.” it took everything in me not to ask him for a running list of the difference between Jews and the Goyim.

13 04 2008
Sister Toldja

I agree Maya. It’s not satire anymore if people are laughing at face value and not getting the message. Most of the readers of this site got it, but most younger Black kids and White folks in general missed the whole point. I feel the same way about the Boondocks. The strip was brilliant and McGruder is a genius, no doubt. But the show lacks most of the strip’s intelligence and seems to rely on a lot of ignorant jokes to get laughs. Again, the White boys watching Adult Swim do NOT see the irony and social criticism, but rather “That nigga Riley is a FOOL!”.

PS- No one answered my question: was Carrie Bradshaw a hoe?????

13 04 2008

…equally as mindboggling was the time that this fool asked me about this car accident i was in. noticing the rental car parked out front in place of my usual jetta, he asks what happened. after recanting the story, he asked where the accident happened. i’m wondering if the accident’s location is what prompted this shit to come out of his mouth. he asked, “how old did he look?” i was like, “oh, not that old…about our age” [the white boy is a year older than me, so he's about 24] “oh. so what type of guy was it that hit you?” puzzled and wholly unprepared for the ignorance that was about to follow, i say, “huh? what do you mean?” “well, was it a respectable guy, or was it like…a gangsta???”

yes, he said “gangsta,” not “gangster.” damn you, 50 cent.

still unable to rebound quickly from the stupidity i was being assaulted with, i said, “i’m not sure i understand.” i also wanted to trap this fucker into saying what he obviously REALLY meant, instead of using these caricatures of black men. so he says, straight face and all: “i mean…you know, was he like, a gangsta?! you know, one of those guys who drive with their seats waaaay back?”

i wanted to laugh at how ridiculous the question was, and also at his pronunciation of the word “gangsta,” but then he would’ve thought this dumb shit was cute. so i masked the most distasteful look i could muster, and said, “no, he wasn’t.”

“oh. so he didn’t give you any problems, then?”

aftert that, i just turned my chair around and went back to (non) work. i wonder if he thought on top of fucking up my car (and my weekend) ole dude was gonna rob me, too. i wonder if white people use their Britas to filter common sense and social etiquette out of their drinking water, too.

13 04 2008
maya

Sister Toldja:

I’m not sure if you could classify her as a “hoe” (whatever that means these days.) Of all of the SATC characters, I would say she had the most consistent amount of monogamous sex because she was in a relationship with Mr. Big for so long, and Aiden after that…and then the old guy (worst part of the season.) You didn’t see her venturing out to bed other guys, or even really dating a lot of other characters like the other 3. And even Charlotte (the brunette) was conservative. Carrie (SJP) moreso represented the women in a relationship with a man who couldn’t wholly commit when she was with Big, and then the woman who isn’t 100% satisfied in an otherwise great relationship when she was with Aiden.

13 04 2008
knaturalbeauty

In order of Hoeness:
Biggest Hoe = Samantha, Second Biggest Hoe = Miranda, then Charlotte, then Carrie. Carrie’s hoe-factor, or lack thereof, may be in direct correlation to her footfacedness.

14 04 2008
Anmarie

S. Toldja, I’m gonna try to answer that question.

They were liberated, not hoes, that was the point of the show. Please. Labels are the least of their worries in the real world.

You know they were locked in by the desire to find love and marriage, locked in my the desire to have the best material possessions, locked in by the desire to socially climb into new york’s top 2%, locked into bad relationships. BUT FREEEEEEE! Because they had tons of casual sex in the STD generation. (OMG -the show where Samantha is nervous about having her FIRST! HIV test after she’s slept with all of NYC is sickening. How can you be all powerful about your sex life and be “in charge and liberated” and you don’t know your freaking HIV status. In the real word HIV is not the only worry you have when you’re slapping gentials with every cutie you meet, there are STDs that are transmitted by skin to skin contact. Condoms only cover the shaft of a penis)
I get annoyned with the message the show is trying to sell me: sex = freedom. Even if it doesn’t mean fulfillment or happiness or contentment. Or if it means warts and herpies. I wouldn’t call them hoes, I don’t believe those terms, but the behavior was self destructive. Other than that it’s always fun to watch a train wreck. Talking foots are funny to me, what can I say.
I’m terrible. Lord help me.

@maya,

Oh great, now I’ve got yet another brilliant piece of funny in my mind that I’m going to have to repress the next time I’m at the PTA … I’m going to know who’s got the “common sense and etiquette filter” in their Brita. I could make a mint by marketing the “dumbass filters” for people to slip into office break rooms.

Carrie was a skank. Paris Hilton is a skank. They think they have social legitimacy and are trendsetters and that spreading their legs is some sort of gift but are completely oblivious to their own hideoma and self destructiveness. I like the brit’s word, “slag” also.

My old lady crankiness says that far too many people seem to have absolutely no sense of shame any more and the rest of us suffer for it. Or at least I do when I’m forced to witness the sheer repulsiveness of their skankitude.

Shit!! I’m a white guy from Canada, and this blog taught me more about a show I never cared about, went out of my way to avoid, and happy I did, in ten minutes than the actual show ever did.

Never saw the attraction to Sarah J. Parker. Shit, they even made a perfume made after her. Which sorry asses would buy that crap? Not only do they have a sense of smell, but more disturbing, a sense of self!

The whole Anglo-saxon white cultureless-culture that is shoveled on TV every night is to sanitize people of any culture all together.

This is why they fear and loath Latinos. They fear their culture taking over. Someone kill Jorge (George) Lopez!!

I hope every non-Anglo American breeds like rabbits over the next 25 years and turn it into a mirror of the united nations, instead of the piss-pot it is now.

14 04 2008
Sister Toldja

LOL! I love all your interpretaions!

Anmarie, I definitely felt the producers/writers/actors trying to sell the notion of sexual liberation as opposed to whorishness (or in Samantha’s case, the liberation to be a happy whore). The liberated woman in me appreciated that in the episodes I saw, while also appreciating that libertation does not always mean true freedom, nor fulfilment. As free as they were, they still seemed to be always searching, just like the ladies who are more discerning in their choice of lovers.

My comfortable place is somewhere in between the Carries and the conservatives: free enough to enjoy sex-without-attachment, yet wise enough to know that, like Godiva chocolate, that is not an indulgence to partake in regularly. I suppose it was cool that they eschewed the notion of married with children by 3_ years old….but know they will be scaping me off of the bottom of the Hudson if I am damn near 50 like Samantha and still chasing tail!

Epilogue: not only was Miranda dick-evaporatingly ugly, she was pretty darn lesbionic, no? She was like a feminine gym teacher. Or perhaps just a feminine man….

That show was depressing in so many ways. The creators tried to gloss over the dark reality with the nightlife, makeup, expensive clothes, and somewhat attractive people but none of that could hide the fact that these were four desperate white “chicks” pushing 35-40 who were just plain unsatisfied and dismayed with the way their lives turned out.

“What really bothers me about this is how everyone talks about how pretty/ugly these actresses are, but there is little or no discussion about their talent.”

Well, I rather think that the point is that the roles they’re playing are those of nubile sex goddesses, and therefore their appearance is relevant. To point out that they’re rather awful proxies for whatever vicarious fantasy existence that their audience indulges in is perfectly valid given that it’s actually central to the plot of the show. You could (for example) cast Michael Cera as a Terminator if you liked, but in so doing, you’d open yourself to the same sort of criticism. Sometimes in acting appearance does matter, because it affects suspension of disbelief.

And besides, it may be true that there’s little discussion of the talent of the 4 main actresses but it certainly isn’t as though their appearance is even the primary complaint that most people have with them. I mean, observations such as “the implausibility of four essentially sociopathic women all having very successful careers that involve – get this – dealing with other people” (which have comprised the majority of the anti-Sex-and-the-City rants that I’ve been a party to) can hardly be said to focus unfairly on gender.
