They Were All Having Fun Online Until Some Black Bitch with High Expectations Showed Up
In this week’s news of Black women can’t have nice things. Black Twitter showed its whole misogynistic ass over a Birkin bag.
Icy girl, Saweetie was villainized on Twitter for telling women on a drunken IG Live
“If he not getting you a Birkin, and if he not paying for your bills, then throw that nigga back to the streets, Okayyy.”
After that went viral every hood booger and nig nog was upset by the advice our good sis Saweetie gave.
Now, I’m not saying that there wasn’t a bit of insensitivity or elitism in her obviously intoxicated IG live because realistically we are in a pandemic, the unemployment rate is astronomical, and well, niggas just don’t have it like that regardless. But the outrage Saweetie faced is still telling in regards to Black women and their standards. Why is it that when Black women have expectations we’re asking for too much? Shit, Shonda Rhimes couldn’t even get some free Disney tickets as a work perk without being asked “don’t you have enough already?” I wonder if a white artist said what Sawetie said would they have received the same backlash? Or would they just get written off as some drunk celebrity talking shit on IG live? It seems like anytime a Black woman vocalizes her standards and expectations all Black women end up getting dragged on Twitter.
We all know the internet isn’t very good at comprehension and context clues, and if you’re a dumb nigga on Twitter you would take what Saweetie said for face value and come to the conclusion that every Black woman’s expectation is to have their significant other pay all their bills and provide them with obnoxious luxuries. Most niggas on Twitter already hate Black women, so add a Black woman with high expectations and that’s a recipe for crucifixion.
But what I personally took from what Saweetie said was that if a niggas not supporting you send his ass back to the streets. I think most Black women value support in relationships, not material goods. As Black women we’re already unprotected as it is, we’re really just looking for someone to have. our backs. I know I am. Unlike Saweetie, I am a regular deguluar girl from the Bronx with a lot of dreams and aspirations so if a man isn’t supporting me in the ways I need to be supported whether that be emotionally, physically, or whatever then he needs to kick rocks. I feel like Black women are often expected to just appreciate the bare minimum. But Black women ain’t no bare minimum bitches. We are the most educated people in this country, we’re the ones that start the movements, we’re the ones that always end up having to save niggas. I don’t know about ya’ll but that ain’t no bare minimum shit. PRERIODT
Saweetie is a successful hip hop artist with a college degree and brand deals up the ass hole, she can buy her own bags. But her love language is receiving gifts, not every Black woman values that kind of love language in a relationship. But it is important for us to know our worth and have expectations to maintain our own happiness and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that BAP’s.
