so everyone was talking about kenya vs porsha today.
i mean everrryyyyyoooonnnneeeee.
if andy wanted ratings,
well gosh darnit,
he got em.
surprisingly it was mostly the talk amongst the snow bunnies today.
they were so shocked and mystified.
its like they got to take a trip to the hood without ever leaving the house.
one intern asked me jokingly if this is how “black women” act when they’re mad?
well not all.”
this is a tv show,
but how could i really answer it?
she was curious because of what she sees on tv.
some sistas will fight like dogs in the street over some stale hood pipe.
hell people in general would actually kill you for less nowadays.
its like people doing random off the wall shit so they can get their 15 minutes.
it all made me wonder…
Is this is the new reality?
i sat in the barber’s chair listening to the stories being told this weekend.
so this wolf waddled in 15 minutes before i got in the chair.
he was on crutches.
he was jumped earlier two weeks ago.
jumped by some jackals in a rival gang in the projects.
he fought them,
but was stabbed in the leg in result.
he said he doesn’t have any feeling in his thigh anymore.
he also has nightmares and has to constantly look over his shoulder.
he said his boys ended up shooting one of the jackals responsible.
apparently he can’t walk now.
it has now caused a major beef between both gangs.
everyone in the shop was cheering him on.
i was ready to go.
this is the real ratchet reality show tho.
this ain’t no hair pulling to the ground.
this is the shit they don’t show or will never show.
in a world where everything needs to be documented,
has life become a place where at any time,
you could be the star?
are we now fighting random people because they provoked you,
or looked at you a certain way?
shit people will do shit just to throw a lawsuit on that ass.
got your whole paycheck garnished because you kept it real and it went wrong.
i think that’s what people forget these days.
they look at these mainstream ratchet people on tv,
ones with make up artists and security guards,
and think that it’s real.
sure porsha and kenya went at it last night,
but one is probably getting a huge pay raise.
she is the new star of the franchise.
she is also currently competing on celebrity apprentice.
well she is divorced,
chest full of plastic,
and getting temporary shine from young ratchets across the land.
“YOU DRAGGED THAT HOE!
I DRAGGED MY MAMA LAST WEEK!
BITCH ASKED ME TO GO TO BED ON TIME FOR SCHOOL.
KNUCK IF YOU BUCK OLD BITCH!
thank god i have home training!”
…but now i’m wondering if these shows are doing more harm to society than good?
something i thought about today.
