A Series of Fortunate Events
Um I don't understand... How is putting swear words throughout a cookbook violating black people and promoting racism ????

To start with, it’s called ‘Thug Kitchen’. “Thug” is shorthand for black male; regardless of how strictly you might try to adhere to respectability politics (i.e. cultivating an image for yourself that lets white people know you’re not like those black people), if you’re black and male you’re still seen as a thug who’s guilty of something a la Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, etc. (Here’s an article about the racist use of the word “thug” throughout the Trayvon Martin trial.)

On no planet can these white yuppies use the word “thug” without racial implications or realistically deny that those implications are intentional. There’s a reason why they were anonymous until the release of their cookbook.

Second, it’s not just swear words, they use African American Vernacular English (AAVE, or “ebonics”) and make the conscious decision to infuse it with vulgar language, which is, by the way, racist since AAVE is not innately vulgar. That’s just their interpretation of what it means to be a “thug”. AAVE is a dialect like any other, using it does not reflect any aspect of your personhood, your intelligence, your class, your education, etc, all it means is that you grew up Black in America, or that your language is influenced by Black people you grew up with.

"All up in", "Ain’t nobody got time for that", etc are examples of AAVE. If you read an interview with these people you’ll notice they don’t speak in AAVE naturally (some non-black folks grow up with AAVE; that is not the case here). They’re just white people who swear a lot. They could have created their corny brand around that vulgarity alone but the addition of AAVE and the "thug" archetype are exploitative and RACIST. The language they’re using is the joke. When black people make jokes that involve AAVE, the language is just the mode of delivery. Everything about this is a mockery and it’s embarrassing, I hope the realization that these people are making money off this minstrel show inspires a serious backlash.

Ewwww

They need to drink an entire gallon of bleach. 😑😒

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO. 
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking

I didn’t want to talk about it before but damn this situation got real. Guy on the left is Amber Rose’s driver. He supposedly was messing with Amber while her and Wiz was an item. At least from Wiz’s point of view.
I don’t know bruh. Ambers son is looking A LOT LIKE OLD DUDE ON THE LEFT

😳

Wiz smoke too much his sperm at the gates of heaven. I knew it was weird.

Bro WHEN AMBER GAVE BIRTH I thought “Nah The baby is WAY too Chunky and big”

👀👀👀👀👀👀

All babies are chunky & big unless they’re premature or have a deficiency dumbass

Is name calling really needed ?

No every baby is not big and chunky. But okay

Can someone tell me why the news of Wiz cheating comes out and niggas want to instead focus on the possibility of Amber Rose cheating? Why y’all trying to put shit on her? Talkin bout the baby too chunky, like nigga have you seen Amber Rose?


Thank you!!! ^^^ some fuck boy propaganda as usual 😒
