For the Love of the Game.

This is for you Doc.

There are many underrepresented groups in America. We like to call them minorities. There are blacks, women, Asians, Latinos, gays and lesbians, puppies, rappers, crackheads, etc. These groups are usually maligned and disenfranchised by the dominant group at the time, which in this country has usually been white men.

Well there are groups that are discriminated against by not only white men, but black men, white women, black women, hell anybody actually, because of their antics and the belief that these individuals are not bringing anything to society and are actually detrimental. It’s ironic, because this group has the ability to bring change to the world and bring about unity because of the diverse nature of its makeup.

I’m talking about video ho*s.

Yes, video ho*s.

It’s amazing the hate that is spewed towards video ho*s. Here is a group of women who are merely adding color, class, and a little bit of sexiness to a video and they receive nothing but negative energy. It’s just not fair. Well, I for one, will not stand around and allow this nincompoopery to continue. It is my goal to point out the one positive that video ho*s bring to the world that could make this a better world for you and me. Yes, they can heal the world. Even make it a better place…for you and for me.

Yes, that’s what video ho*s can do.

First, I apologize for any ill will I’ve given to the video ho*s. You make me smile and I intend to purge myself of all of the ignorance I’ve thrown your direction.

Being as I watch a lot of videos, I realize that some of these women are being exploited, but most of them just want to be there, sharing their beauty and dancing skills with the world. These women, these valiant purveyors of aesthetic voyeurism, are providing the backdrop for a society enamored with entertainment and a**. We are a T&A society. They are T&A. I think we should examine how much these video ho*s, these women that we talk so horribly about, go through just to make us smile, gawk, and appreciate the aesthetic beauty that is hip-hop.

I was watching the MTVJams the other day and saw the popular 2006 video for the Back Wudz single “You’re Gonna Love Me”.

While watching this video, I started thinking about when this video came out – mostly because there is a severe disparity in the outfits that are being rocked in this video. The dudes, especially towards the end and during the night hours are all wearing…coats. The video ho*s?? They’re wearing what video ho*s wear.

Nothing.

You can see the cold breath from these dudes as they’re rapping. And yet, right there, bright as day, those video ho*s are still putting in their work because they see the greater picture here. They make it look like its 90 degrees outside, despite the fact that Dallas Austin is wearing a Gap (I only know this because I have that coat) $150 parka.

You see, what video ho*s bring to the world is an undying spirit and work ethic despite the odds. Sure its cold outside and they’ll probably have to go to the hospital to get treated for hypothermia…but there is a greater cause at hand! Making the men look like the pimps they aren’t. Video ho*s risk heights, will walk on ledges, will stand on the edge of a crane, let snakes climb all over them, just to make a video look good. That is dedication.

You see, video ho*s, the oft maligned group of women, are believers in perseverance and the greater good. They believe in the artistry of music. Video ho*s believe that without aesthetics and without determination, the world would crumble.

Video ho*s make us believe that men in these videos are sex symbols. But alas, they do them, over and over.

They show up and give light to the darkness that is a horrible song because they believe in the plight of the entertainer. And I believe in their plight, because video ho*s make it possible to believe!

That is what they bring to the world and why this group shouldn’t be discriminated against any longer. Video ho*s make me believe in myself.

What have you done to better the world lately?

Panama Jackson is pretty fly (and gorgeous) for a light guy. He used to ship his frito to Tito in the District, but shipping prices increased so he moved there to save money. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. Most importantly, he believes the children are our future. Gorgeous P out. *drops mic*

  • This was the most hilarious piece of bullsh!t I have ever read. I am going to respectfuly disagree. Whatever the motivation is for women being video hos, I am almost 100 % sure that it is not for the “greater good”. And this sentence

    is extremely laughable. Work ethic? Puhleeaassee…….

    • “Work ethic? Puhleeaassee…….”

      so clocking 5 consecutive 16 hour work days and getting paid roughly $2.30 an hour isn’t a sign of an outstanding work ethic? i mean, when you think about it, in terms of work ethics, video ho’s are up there with school principals, nurses, and crackheads

      • so clocking 5 consecutive 16 hour work days and getting paid roughly $2.30 an hour isn’t a sign of an outstanding work ethic?

        I think it is an outstanding showing of work ethic…lol…especially since they make 2.30/hr (1.95/hr below the bible belt) they gotta make their LV money in tips…or tip drills…whichever you prefer…

        • where are y’all getting these stats? they make more than $2.30/hr and it only takes 2 days (max) to make a video. on the cheaper, sluttier ones sometimes get their talent for free by just shutting down the local strip club and filling the “talent” who already work there… there’s a documentary on this (the plight of the video ho) and it aired on BET (of all networks) about 3 years ago.

          • its not much more than that. Alot of video professionals aren’t even paid. Its on some “portfolio” tip. Thats pretty widely known. alot of the ladies are JUST excited to be apart of the “creative process”.

  • I do want to note however that I dont have a problem with video ho’s. As long as they are adults I am fine with their choice but much like Erika Badu.. you cant decide that you are special and get a free pass from the views and opinions of society. Most women with 3 kids and 3 baby daddies have to deal with the negative stigma attached to having multiple baby daddies….Most women who make a living by exploiting their bodies have to deal with the same thing.. ..right or wrong you know how society views these things. So keep you head up and keep moving if thats the road you decide upon..

    • “Most women who make a living by exploiting their bodies have to deal with the same thing.”

      honestly though, and this is a “bigger” question, but why is using your body f0r personal gain so much worse than using your mind? i mean, theyre both your God-given possessions, so how is the use of one of them given the side eye?

      • My guess would be because of the bible. Fornication is a sin, lust is a sin, so a person making their living by selling sex is promoting sin.

          selling sex is not a “sin”…just because you’re selling it doesn’t people have to buy it…that’s like saying beng a bartender is a sin…I am a little rusty on my biblosity, but I think drinking is not the sin, but drunking is…(shrugging) but for real (for real) the whole idea of this is a sin and that is a sin is such a diluted argument…I mean the origins of the bible and what was already there and what was added/deleted by Jimmy, etc would all have to come into play and it is perhaps too early in the morning for such a debate…perhaps too early in life…

          • I am not saying whether selling sex is a or isnt a sin…I am saying that I think the negative connotation attached to using your body to survive instead of your mind is derived from that particular mind set.

          I think it gets really complicated. Everything is an exchange. Someone pointed out below that on a certain level we all are ho’s. I had a professor tell me once that marriage is a form of sexual exchange and prostitution.

          I think there was a study done on how people buy things from attractive and desirable people whose sex#uality is also for sell, you don’t JUST by a product. The cosmetic, clothing, automotive, and food industry all sell se#x and desirability. So maybe we are all sinnin’ when we purchase.

            A few years back there was a news story about a woman who became a millionaire selling hot dogs on a California beach. The secret to her success? Skimpy bathing suits and a whole lotta flirting!

              a millionaire??? thats a lot hotdogs..but when you think about it. I don’t think a woman owns hooters. But thats smart, if your gonna sell yourself…why not really SELL YOURSELF. That needs to go into the video h$o manual.

          Exactly…not to get all preachy, but selling sex is basically engaging in fornication, or sex outside of the marital bond.

    haai, champ – you’re special, all right….rock on, my dear brother! very very hilarious! i’m sure the video gelz appreciate your support!

    i remember once yeeears ago, when i was in sophmore year, watching a video girl award ceremony at about 2am on BET – i remember they were serenaded by a very old and diminished looking jeffrey osborne – of ‘you should be mine [the woo woo song]’ fame!

    heh heh heh,maybe they should revive the ceremony, i never heard of it again… but then again, i only caught it coz i was wide awake on christmas break, happy to watch any trash as long as it was on cable…

    (incidentally, a brazillian girl won the competiton – she had killa moves and when asked what she’d do with the cash if she won, instead of the vacuous materialistic answers the other gelz gave, she wisely said ‘i’ll send it to my mom in brazil, coz she really needs it!’ jackpot! why not send the $ to a struggling mama in the favelas of rio instead of blinging up 5th avenue? hmmmm???

    maybe you should venture into broadcast champ, and let the video ho competition be your first property – you could team up with flava-flav… ha ha ha! sheer viewing plezha… not.
