Trick DaddyBruh? You mad?

The lengths to which some below-mediocre black male rappers will go after their fifteen minutes of fame in the game has waned. It’s pitiful, really.

The rapper who goes by the name Trick Daddy decided that, for shits and giggles, he needed to get something pressing off his chest on Instagram — always a toxic idea when you’re high on expired testosterone, self-hate and the patriarchy.

The result: an anti-black woman rant about why black women — oh, excuse me, these “ho[e]s” and “bitch[es]” who look like his mother, grandmother and the outgoing First Lady and …  — should “tighten up” and stop doing “extra shit.” Otherwise, black men will expand their dating pool and pursue women outside their race, as if there’s not a history of interracial dating already.


Here’s the print version of this mess:

“These Spanish, these white [hos]…they done started getting finer than a [motherf–ka],’”

Ya’ll black [hos] betta’ tighten up, ” Trick continued. “I’m telling you. tighten up, ya’ll doin’ all that extra [s–t] for nothin,’ you not achieving nothin’ [b–ch].”

Bruh? You mad?

First, black men have been “hooping and hollering” (as my great-grandmother use to say) about this crap for decades, since the days of Betty Brosmer and Elridge Cleaver. Funny how when they do, they pin all the blame for the degradation of romantic relationships in the black community on the “extra shit” of black women, not on the deeply disturbing and troublesome psychic issues of black men:

From Elridge Cleaver’s Soul on Fire:

“One afternoon, when a large group of Negroes was on the prison yard shooting the breeze, I grabbed the floor and posed the question: which did they prefer, white women or black? Some said Japanese women were their favorite, others said Chinese, some said European women, others said Mexican women — they all stated a preference, and they generally freely admitted their dislike for black women.”

“You may not believe this … when I off a nigger bitch, I close my eyes and concentrate real hard, and pretty soon I get to believing that I’m riding one of them bucking blondes. I tell you the truth, that’s the only way I can bust my nuts with a black bitch, to close my eyes and pretend like she’s a Jezebel. If I was to look down and see a black bitch underneath me or if my hand happened to feel her nappy hair, that would be the end, it would be all over.”

“I’d jump over ten nigger bitches for one white women. Ain’t no such thing as an ugly white woman. A white woman is beautiful even if she’s bald-headed and only has one tooth.”

But black women are the ones who should “tighten up.” M’kay.

Second, who in God’s name told Trick Daddy, or Mr. Daddy, or Trick — whatever he’s going by — that someone is checking for his opinion? Hell, I barely know or remember anything about the man’s music. Because … Trina. Like everyone else — yes, I’m assuming ALL the men and ALL the women feel this way — whenever Trick and Trina shared the screen, my eyes and ears were trained on the flow of “da baddest bitch.” She’s the only thing about his brief foray in the spotlight that was worth anything.

To the Black men who agree with this washup and preach this garbage: know that you’re a waste of semen, sperm that should’ve never found the egg. Handle your issues.
