Big Black Dick

Unless you have been under four rocks, a building and an opera singer’s bosom, you’ve heard about Mel Gibson’s latest racist rant.   In a recent argument with his baby mama (whose name I have no interest in attempting to spell, despite the fact that I could have copied and pasted her name in less time than it took to write this), Mr. Gibson gifted us with this gem:

“You look like a f***ing pig in heat.  And if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault.”

There is a part of me that wants to give it a standing ovation.  I always love when people tell folks how they really feel.  Outstanding.  A random tweeter said that Mel actually went for a two-fer if you consider the pork reference, but that is neither here nor there.  On it’s face, Mel is a racist asshole that thinks black males rove in packs in search of white women to violate.  This is quite compelling, because Mel is quite obviously racist, an asshole, and we’ll throw in nutty as squirrel shit for good measure.  But it goes deeper than that.  Mel is a desperate man.  He is not only losing his relevance and credibility in Hollywood, but he is now losing his new family.  You know.  The one he left his wife for.

Mel’s rant over the “pack of niggers” does not rest solely on the shoulders of his bigotry. It is also attributable to the fact that he KNOWS what he had on his hands.  A woman who was perfectly fine with being impregnated by a douchebag in a long term marriage with several kids.  Apparently, he’s never heard the term, “You can’t turn a ho into a housewife.”  It’s not that he had the sudden epiphany that she was a skank, it’s just no longer convenient for him, so he chooses to take issue with it.  It’s not about black men and rape.  He fears she is one fuck away from having his precious child in cornrows and a dashiki.  He doesn’t believe she will be Mystikaled.  He believes she’ll be Jack Johnsoned.  And therein lies the problem.

It’s 2010, and the black penis is still the Boogey Man.  I’ve heard sportscasters make jokes about going into the NBA locker room.  Speaking of the NBA, in the case of Kobe Bryant, a woman, by all appearances, falsely cried rape, and the big black dick jokes surfaced.  Kim Kardashian was branded a whore for having video evidence of taking her boyfriend’s – not jump off, not random party guy, not stranger – big black dick.  No one can convince me that she would have received the same backlash if her companion was white.  The preoccupation with black male sexuality does not border on obsession – it’s baptized in it.

When we as a society discuss the problem with black women and the HIV/AIDS crisis, before we put the weight on women to have protected sex or not share needles, we scream “DOWN LOW BROTHERS.”  Though men of any race can be gay and in the closet, here, the offenders blackness is understood.  So, these gay men and their big black dicks are sticking them in innocent black women and killing them with reckless abandon.  As a society, when we discuss man sharing in the black community, we don’t bring up women who do this knowingly, or at the very least, ignore all the obvious signs.  We scream that men are dogs who are compelled to put their big black dicks everywhere.

If gone unchecked, one could surmise that the big black dick:

  • makes one a smooth president
  • can cause any argument
  • can end any argument
  • is responsible for all of the ills in the black family, and therefore, the black community
  • will try to rape you in prison
  • will try to rape you out of prison
  • can not wait to find itself a white woman
  • killed and hid Jimmy Hoffa.

Bad judgement, characters and decisions transcend race, gender and social status.  There are some offending dicks of all races.  There are offending dicks of all sizes.  Not every black dick is laying in wait for unsavory activity.  And please do not take my tongue in cheek writing to mean that I am glossing over the danger caused by this line of thinking.  Black men have had their humanity stripped away from their genitals since we were brought to this country. Additionally, the demonization of one group in the way of blanket statements covering all and in only looking at one party when others are equally culpable, is unconscionable.  I don’t have the answers to this, but for my part, I’m taking it upon myself to look at the big picture, rather than just the tiny Viewmaster version.

    Hah! The Republicans, right now, are saying that the Big Black Dick stole the election, won it illegally, his white mama was mystikaled by it, it put the country into a trillion dollars of debt (forgeting the 9 trillion that some white Bush put it in w/a stupid, unnecessary war), and has transformed the country into a place that they no longer recognize as “their” America. It’s also responsible for “our boys” dying in the deserts of Afghanistan and the oil spill in the Gulf. There are a LOT of people showing us how they really feel right now, just as Mel Gibson has. Yet, somehow, I don’t feel like clapping. That Big Black Dick is a muhfugga, ain’t it?

      If you only think it’s the Republicans saying that, did you forget how some of those Clinton supporters cut up?

      The fact that “mystikal” is being used as a verb and I know what it means… just reminds me of how messed up we are a humans lol

    While I fully understand the point about demonizing the BBD–and concur–can anyone be mad if my larger take-away after reading was “nuttier than squirrel shit”?

    I must use that. I don’t know when, but I have to.

     
    • afromamba

      YES YES YES! lol. I love that term. Admittedly, I went back and forth between “nutty as squirrel shit” and “crazy as cat shit.” So…there’s another one for your arsenal.

    You hit the target with this one. Frances Cress Welsing has been talking about this for ages.

      I have to read more (or at least branch out…I have so many books in the queue), because I certainly had to Google who Frances Cress Welsing was. I’m the worst.

      But yes, it’s at the point where it’s blatant and ridiculous.

    Well… BBD makes me moist, makes me pay bills, makes me cook food, makes me wash funky draws…

    Maybe I skipped class on the day they taught people to fear it.

    Peace. This is dope. Provocative title got me to read real dope thoughts. I’m checking the rest.

    peace
