this is funny, but what if the bro-ghost spirits said ”dooope***” ”nah, son” ”FOH” would the ladies still reverse the incantation? would that then be racist?
I mean, I’m sure any black-bro ghost would be like, “heeeeeyyyyy, two line drawings fine as yourselves could never be racist, mami. i find it hard to be offended… and might I add, young lady w glasses, that I like your crop top shirt.” the racism wouldn’t derail a reincarnate-and-hookup or wherever this was going.
but if there’s tape, *found footage*, of an invisible ghost moaning “naaaahhhh, son” “waddup, shawties” and these two white girls who were conjuring men then go “reverse reverse reverse” that’s gonna read racist for a lot of people on the internet. Actionably racist. The girl on the left could be fired from Buzzfeedy, and the girl on the right would have to post an essay explaining herself on xojezebelshairpin. ”Sawwrrry, we meant stupid-white-bros not cool-black-bros. We thought that would be obvious. I say dope all the time.” makes me wonder how feminists are reconciling this difficult race/gender divide associated with black-bro stuff (i.e. Nassplaining, “Chappelle Mode”, DrakeRape** etc) — one wants to treat all obnoxious behavior with the same contempt, but race relations muddy the equation. Who knows, you might want a good late-night Nassplainin’…
(**Can I say DrakeRape? Sorry. I don’t know what DrakeRape is exactly but rolls off the tongue so easy it seems like it should exist…)
((…drakerape is probably something where a date’s urban-lascivious behavior is dialed up to just below RKelly levels (but the rhyme scheme/mnemonic works better w drake, (sorry)))
(((…cause white dudes never drakerape, right? they do other non-r&b types of rape. but only black/minority-bros drakerape (or, yknow, transblackbros like justin timberlake, robin thicke, mayer hawthorne etc.) anyways, i’ll ponder this, cause something does feel a little off in what I’ve written here, maybe have legal take a look at the language, then get the memo out somehow. thanks for listening.)))
((((***also need to change “Star Wars” to “Dilla” or maybe “Illmatic”))))
