The Week In Review

Between countless annual events (i.e.: awards shows, season premieres, etc), weekly regularities (i.e. episodes of “RHOA” or “Basketball Wives”), and more “spontaneous” occurrences (i.e.: Whitney Houston’s funeral, Oprah’s interview with the Houston family, etc), we’ve reached a point in our culture where, for many of us, the collective consumption of a subject matters more than the subject itself. Basically, we careinfinitely more about what’s said on our Twitter timelines about Jim and Chrissy’s relationship on “Love and Hip-Hop” than we do about Jim and Chrissy’s relationship.

This quote is from “Collective Consumerism: It Takes a Village to Watch a TV Show (?)” — an article I wrote at Ebony.com. And while I do still think that the latent premise remains true, I think it’s pretty ironic that I’d write an article talking about how what we consume pales in comparison to our consumption of it in the same week I wrote two posts here talking about the importance of the avalanche of virtual attention the Trayvon Martin case has received. Anyway, if you haven’t checked it out already, please do. (And, if so compelled, leave a comment.)

Panama, aka “The Girl’s BFF,” aka “The Three Goggles” has an interesting post up at Guyspeak this week titled “Man Law Violations That Women Want Us To Engage In”. While he didn’t mention what I consider to be the most annoying Man Law Violation That Women Ask Us To Do — “share food from our plate before we even had a chance to eat it” — the list includes “Wearing Sandals” which, I swear to Baby Jesus, every single woman I’ve ever seriously dated has tried to convince me to do.

If that doesn’t quench your Panama thirst, you can also check out “Ask A Black Man” – Meet Panama Jackson on Madame Noire. And, while you’re over there, make sure to check out the transcript from my weekly live chat on Madame Noire’s Facebook page.

Lastly, the pic up top is from Wednesday’s #millionhoodiemarch in support of Trayvon Martin. We did this already on our Facebook fan page, but if you have any hoodie pics to share, please leave them in the comments below. Because we’re not all that original, we’re going to copy what Urban Cusp has already done try and create a gallery of our own. I know creating a gallery isn’t going to save any lives or right any injustices, but if we’re all going to start doing something, we gotta start somewhere, right?

    I read Panama’s post on GuySpeak and lol’ed. But FYI, any woman asking her man to wear sandals is INTENTIONALLY asking him to emasculate himself to prove that he would rather please her than preserve his masculinity/masculine image. SERIOUSLY. I would NEVER ask a man to wear sandals, if he chose to, I wouldn’t have a problem, but I like my men manly (obvious hetero gender norm issues aside) and wouldn’t ask him to do that. I promise any chick who does that is not an idiot, even if she’s not thinking it explicitly in her head, her subconscious is trying to get that man to lower his pride for her.

    And share your food! I like options, if you’re not gonna share, we might as well have gotten the same thing :-/

    P.S: I also have a thing about feet so the sandals will never be an issue for me.

    • Todd

      Besides the unmanly thing about sandals, I have legit health reasons not to wear them. Due to flat feet, I have to wear shoes with orthotics or else I will be in PAIN. Like barely able to walk pain. Asking me to wear sandals in that situation is a sign that you don’t give a eff about me or my health. Sorry.

        In regards to having flat feet…

        Have you tried going barefoot only in your home? For people with flat feet, docs often prescribe that you wear orthotic shoes which offer the arch support that you need but only end up exasperating the problem as they don’t allow you to build up that strength naturally. I’m sure you have done a ton of research on your own but if I could direct you to this one website it may offer some help. Best of luck!

      • That Ugly Kid

        I simply don’t wear sandals for two reason. They’re not my style. And wearing them would require me to remember to put a lot of lotion on my feet. For my sake and for your own, you don’t want to see me in sandals…

        Regarding flat feet; Do you remember Chris Partlow from The Wire? The actor that played Chris, Gbenga Akinnagbe, has flat feet and wrote an article for the NY Times about his surgery to correct the condition.

        Here’s the link;

      Yeah, see, the men in sandals thing caught my complete attention. I don’t mean any harm, but I HATE to see men in sandals. They hardly EVER look…..manly. I just don’t find them attractive. At. All. So my man wouldn’t have to worry about that.

      As for eating off his plate, it’s not that serious. That’s we we went to a restaurant, so we could each get what we wanted. If I wanted what he had, I should’ve ordered it,or made arrangements during the decision process “Hey, you wanna get __________ and _________ and split ‘em?” Otherwise it’s kinda rude to ask for his food and he didn’t even pick up his fork yet. See, that’s a game women play to see if he “REALLY loves” her all like that. All that ain’t necessary.

    -Brother Muzone, The Wire

    Good morning champ, everyone,
    As ive pointed out to, i believe it was panama last week, it is my view that social media, such as it is, is on balance, a seriously nonproductive timesuck. It retards thoughtful discourse, discourages depth and acts as a deterrent to intellectual rigor. This is something to which black folk seem especially vulnerable to, and has been written about to some degree by various pundits and observers. Nor is it in the least surprising-studies have and continue to show that african americans watch far and away more television than any other racial group. Given the current state of malaise in the black community, i think it is fair to say that such media outlets have been, on balance, more negative than positive for us.

    It is for these reasons that i personally eschew such things; i dont own a tv, nor do i spend much time on the various social media outlets. On the other hand i do spend a considerable amount of my time reading books, blogs worth reading, and various articles on the internet by respected thinkers. It is a practice that has served me well, and something more of us would do well to emulate.

    Per your announcement i spent a bit of time yesterday evening checking out panamas feature at madame noir. The upcoming series focusing on black men sounds interesting-lets see if any of them are red pills or not…

    Wrt the trayvon martin issue and attendant hoodie campaign…please pardon me for being deeply ambivalent about the whole ball of wax. It is not that i dont think the case isnt important-it is-its just that im having a very difficult time reconciling the outpouring of outrage over that on the one hand, while we continue to be relatively mum about the daily bloodletting that occurs in hoods across america. Perhaps thats because most of us get up outta the hood as soon as we are able-black flight has been around almost as long as its white counterpart.

    Nor can i participate in any such campaign, for i eschew hoodies-an item of clothing that has become associated with, at the very least, suspicious activity on the part of black males. I have always sought to dress in a way that clearly demarcated myself from the more typical “thug nigga” look, and this practice has served me well.

    So, thats it for me this week. Gotta get cracking on that remix on you and ms maxwells rape articles this weekend; ill be sure to send you along an advance copy when its done. Perhaps you could forward it to ms maxwell herself? I would like very much to see her response.

      Hmm, I associate hoodies more with athletes…

      • http://www.styleillusions.com WIP

        “I have always sought to dress in a way that clearly demarcated myself from the more typical “thug n!gga” look…”

        The tone of this statement really annoyed me. It’s not your (or any black man’s) responsibility to look less frightening or thug-like. I won’t argue that there may be a look associated with “thugs” but a simple hoodie does not a criminal make. I think your comment reflects what this Trayvon situation is all about. A black man dressed normally somehow conveyed a threatening image- for what reason?

        • http://obsidianraw.bravejournal.com Obsidian

          @Ms. WIP:
          Replies below:

          “The tone of this statement really annoyed me.”

          O: Why, may I ask?

          “It’s not your (or any black man’s) responsibility to look less frightening or thug-like.”

          O: It is if we have any intention of doing anythning worthwhile in this life.

          “I won’t argue that there may be a look associated with “thugs””

          O: That would be a wise decision (I knew there was a reason why I liked you!); from the City Journal, Harry Stein has this to say:

          “The pretense is that the hoodie is an innocuous clothing item or, at any rate, that it is unfairly seen as carrying negative associations. There’s a word for this: nonsense. The hoodie isn’t like a letterman’s jacket or a t-shirt or a pair of jeans. It does indeed carry associations—for many, ominous ones. Like pants worn low to reveal the shorts underneath, hoodies are part of a style favored by gangbangers and drug dealers and others who hold life exceedingly cheap; which is to say, under certain circumstances, it is apt to heighten another’s uncertainty and fear, and bring potential danger for the wearer.

          Those demanding justice for Trayvon Martin are quick to define Zimmerman as a trigger-happy racist, and it’s possible that he is—though some who know him, including at least one black neighbor, reportedly dispute that characterization. But what’s beyond question is that for the hoodie marchers, real-life experience isn’t supposed to matter. They’d serve the memory of Trayvon Martin far better by speaking a difficult truth, one that goes far beyond the particulars of this terrible case: as long as so many underclass kids continue to act as predators, the negative assumptions they create will unfairly affect the lives of millions of decent black kids.

          Everyone knows this is so—even Jesse Jackson. Jackson has said many embarrassing and even disgraceful things in his long public life, but the statement he surely most regrets is when he famously told the truth. “There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery—and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.””
          http://www.city-journal.org/2012/eon0322hs.html

          How we choose to present ourselves to the world, matters, Ms. WIP. It. Just. Does.

          “but a simple hoodie does not a criminal make.”

          O: I don’t recall saying that it did; what I said was that it was associated with suspicious behavior on the part of Black Males…and…it is.

          “I think your comment reflects what this Trayvon situation is all about. A black man dressed normally somehow conveyed a threatening image- for what reason?”

          O: I think the Trayvon incident reflects the fact that Mr. Zimmerman disobeyed a direct order from the 911 dispatcher not to pursue the suspect, and he did anyway. Case closed.

          But when it comes to adoption hoodies as some kind of symbol for Trayvon himself, the logic is shaky at best; and when it comes to comparing that to the late Mr. Martin’s life, a serious case of cognitive dissonance at worst.

          Again, please view the Omarion vid.

          O.

          • http://www.styleillusions.com WIP

            That statement annoyed me because it seemed to imply that when I wear a simple, common piece of clothing, like a hoodie, it will be my fault if someone thinks I’m a thug. So I should try to dress like a good, safe black person.

            “The hoodie isn’t like a letterman’s jacket or a t-shirt or a pair of jeans. It does indeed carry associations—for many, ominous ones.”

            I suppose this is where I question your original statement and other who think like you. Does it only carry ominous associations when there’s a black face inside? When you see a black boy in a hoodie you think “thug”; would you also think “thug” if you saw a blonde-haired blue eyed boy in a hoodie or would you think he just came back from a jog? I believe that to be the spirit of the hoodie demonstrations.

            As far as Zimmerman is concerned; he may have associated hoodie with thug, regardless of race. Several media reports suggest he had a problem with black people. Time will tell. I’ve always been conflicted about the idea of “hate crimes” but that’s another discussion.

        My point is, that instead of actually dealing with what i said wrt the trayvon issue, you instead sought to attack me. Typical, if not sad.

        Instead of trying to kill the messenger you might be a bit more interested in all those activists out in oakland who are doing such a bangup job bringing down the black fraticide rate-you can start with the “your muslim bakery” tragedy…

            Hello Thelonius,
            Back in front of my computer; replies below…

            “First, this is the Internets (c) Dallas Penn, and I will write in english, french, spanish and wolof si bon me semble.”

            O: You are of course free to speak any language you like; but if you wish to have a productive conversation and exchange with someone, it helps to speak in their language. Here in the USA, we speak and write, English; this blog, Very Smart Brothas, is written in English. Therefore, it behooves you to brush up on your English if you wish to participate.

            “Second, the smartphone excuse is a weak excuse”

            O: No weaker than your “I’m still learning English” excuse…

            “you just sprayed yourself”

            O: With some more cologne, thank you very much. Today’s flavor is Chrome…

            “This is all fun for me I practice my english by responding to you…”

            O: I’m here to help; you will learn much in Dojo Obsidian, young one…

            “I attacked your verbiage and your theories not your person, I hope so.”

            O: I’m afraid not; from your comment yesterday, I quote:

            “If all our late great leaders were thinking like you they will be alive and writing insipide blogs on other people blog.”

            And…

            “your faux erudition.”

            Both of these statements are logical fallacies in action, my friend; known as Ad Hominem attacks, they are designed to discredit the person making the argument, rather than dealing with the veracity of the argument itself. I’ll explain further how you never in fact addressed not one blessed thing that I said; stay tuned…

            “I pointed the weakness in your post and you failed to correct me.”

            O: I “failed” to correct you because there was nothing to correct; you never addressed anything I said.

            “I don’t know nothing about Oakland and I have nothing to say about what’s happening in France.”

            O: That’s good on the latter, since I nor anyone else has asked you about what was going on in France (reading for comprehension is your friend); on the former, if you know nothing about Oakland it probably is a good idea not to be discussing it at all, like you did yesterday (without any attendant links, I might add; hmm); and it’s “I don’t know anything about Oakland.”. You’re welcome.

            “I don’t have no solution for what’s going on in the world”

            O: Correction: “I don’t have any solution for what’s going on in the world…”

            “and no solution for the state of black people worlwide.”

            O: Good; no one’s asked you for any such solutions (they call this a non-sequitur, by the way)…

            “I am just an average African man,”

            O: Actually, below average, since below average people tend to discuss other people, rather than events or more preferably, ideas.

            “Anyway let’s stop here, good luck with your blog works…”

            O: Thank you, I accept!-and yes, let us stop right here: Thelonius, it is clear that you don’t like me. If you had simply stated that upfront, without any weaksauce attempts at upbraiding me, I could at least respect you as a Man for doing so; after all, we all have our likes and dislikes, such is life. But the way you went about this is in such a cowardly manner that I can only have what can be aptly described as something several levels beneath contempt for you on this one.

            Surely, you can do better.

You have got to stop and think. I want the 55 percent dropout rate stopped, period. It’s epidemic. I want people to think about choices. I want you to begin to see yourself as somebody. I want you to stop doing things that are detrimental to your getting at least an education with a high school credential.”

                Since your knowledge of American life, particularly Black American life, is severely limited, I won’t ask you as to where are the legions of Black activists who have heeded Mr. Cosby’s clarion call…

            Going back to the topic…ahem…I have always been of the view that there is a big distinction to be made between “ghetto” and “urban”; most people, particularly but not limited to those outside of the African American community, seem not to be able to make the difference between the two modes of being and expression.

            Of course, I consider myself to be of the latter orientation; and I take great care in the kinds of attire that I wear to reflect this aesthetic.

            What say you on the matter, Ms. African Mami? Do you think there is a difference between being ghetto and being urban, and if so/not, why?

              Do you think there is a difference between being ghetto and being urban, and if so/not, why?

              If we are talking from an American context….not a distinct difference per say. These two terms are interrelated, and depending on the audience, the term ghetto can be switched up to urban, in order to sound more politically correct.

              However, from a worldwide perspective, or should I say from my neck of the woods-the land of your ancestors, these two terms are mutually exclusive of each other. We can get real deep-, by inferencing (it is not a word, but I am the queen of making up words) to classism and colonization….

              You consider yourself urban. To me that just means you are hood as all hell gerr ourra hurr!

          Have you read those books I assigned to you last week?

      I can’t help but hear baby Stewie’s voice when I read your posts. I suppose I can’t think of a better vocal manifestation of smugness than baby Stewie.

      • http://obsidianraw.bravejournal.com Obsidian

        “Baby Stewie”? Who is that?

        And why must you accuse me of being “smug”? On what grounds, pray tell?

        O.

          From Wikipedia

          “Stewie [Griffin] is a two-year-old prodigy who has a very sophisticated psyche, is able to speak fluently, and is intended to have a slightly camp upper class English accent.”

        Baby Stewie!!!!!

        Now whenever he posts I won’t be able to concentrate on what he’s saying with that voice in my head.

        Thank you.

    Re: sandals – depends on location, I guess. (Manly) men wear sandals and flip-flops in Florida.

    My question has been answered. I used to wonder why my husband would get so mad after I took ONE or two fries out of his supersize fries that he had forced BK to refill three times so he could make sure he was getting his money’s worth.
