"What happens when white America falls in love with Tiffany Haddish?"
Mon Aug-28-17 06:24 PM by atruhead

  

          

it's been said to me that she's just being herself at all times (LA girl, not removed from the hood) and Im fine with that

but how long before white people are laughing too hard at her for the wrong reasons? (please dont ask me to expound)

I guess Im wondering if explicit blackness should be closed off to outsiders (Martin, To Pimp A Butterfly, Voodoo etc)

it's a slippery slope before you're Tracy Morgan who's very funny despite his white audience seeing him as a buffoon compared to Chris Rock or Dave Chappelle

Aug 29th 2017

yup.
Aug 29th 2017

except you're wrong because Hidden Figures happened
Aug 29th 2017

Aug 29th 2017

      your point????
Aug 29th 2017
74
           Taraji Henson's trajectory has come to include serious roles
Aug 29th 2017
82
                ...and Empire.
Aug 29th 2017
84
                Im aware she's on that show. not sure what point you think you made
Aug 29th 2017
86
                did you just say "has become"?? what that mean? what was she "before"?
Aug 29th 2017
93
                     you introduced Taraji Henson into the discussion
Aug 29th 2017

Really??? Insecure's audience is majority white... as is Atlanta's
Aug 29th 2017
32
yeah, I doubt this
Aug 29th 2017

Atlanta yes. Insecure not a chance.
Aug 29th 2017

Aug 29th 2017

if AtL or Insecure had exclusively or majority black audiences
Aug 29th 2017
39
ehh idk abt that..i think they were marketed to US b4 the 1st eps
Aug 29th 2017
43
      marketed to us?
Aug 29th 2017
46
           marketing to 'us' is the way they market to themselves.
Aug 29th 2017

Funny you say that--I found her Trevor appearance problematic.
Dec 11th 2017
113
      Just watched. That appearance was hella funny.
Dec 11th 2017
127
She is an embarrassment. But she is making money
Dec 11th 2017
108
She's a comedian. She's Melissa McCarthy, if she looked like Jenny McCar...
Dec 11th 2017
111
Yeah. Im confused what makes her cooning
Dec 11th 2017
114
This
Dec 11th 2017
118
its only cooning because she's around white people now
Dec 11th 2017
119
I don't see it as cooning either.
Dec 11th 2017
120
"Always on" is a good way to describe it
Dec 11th 2017
123
perhaps I should’nt used that word...
Dec 11th 2017
121
what do you mean polished?
Dec 11th 2017
122
point blank...I don’t care for her style n/m
Dec 12th 2017
129
      ok, that's diff than polished
Dec 12th 2017
132
Being all over the place, just for the sake of it. That's what I see.
Mar 05th 2018

She ain't.
Dec 11th 2017
124
just curious.... what kinda filter is that? **bites apple**
Dec 11th 2017
125
there's nothing wrong with it to me because it's authentic
Dec 12th 2017
128
I don't have a moral or political beef with her comedy, it just gets old
Dec 11th 2017
126
this "I Married A Black Woman" stuff is kinda hilarious...
Dec 12th 2017

                     It is.. but when Kevin is an example of how to do it right
Mar 05th 2018
204
                          what is "right"? let's start there.
Mar 05th 2018
209
                               I think by right they mean telling jokes without running around on stage
Mar 05th 2018
216
She was the exact same before she had crossover appeal
Mar 05th 2018

I don’t think it matters

How are we supposed to evolve in America if we keep getting caught up in the "you schuckin' and jivin' fo' whie folk" mentality. Comedy in and of itself is clownish with a touch of buffoonery. If you're afraid of being laughed at for the wrong reasons, you shouldn't be in the business.

I think the BEST thing she can do is just be who she is, comfortable in her skin and grow from that. THAT'S what's going to make her career (and has done so to this point).

Let's just hope she has good representation and the right people in her corner so that she can navigate the pitfalls intelligently.

that said, I dont take issue with her because she's being herself and it's not an act. my concern is how it will come to be consumed and by who

It's fine if you don't agree but we are talking about comedy. Some people are gonna laugh for reasons you might not like but unless they tell her directly or she feels uncomfortable about it (a la Chappelle) I don't see what the issue is. We can't be worried about social standards if we expect to escape them.

When Ellen waltz's out to her audience and does the whip nae nae or grooves with her audience, no one says "well, how will Black people view her?". Why we have to do so with Tiff.

Let her break barriers, be the female Kevin Hart and pave a way for more talented black female comedians. They have to accept us as who we are and we can't be afraid to be who we are.

Entertainment is to be consumed and you can't control by whom once it's for sale/publicly released. If it gets to the point where it's being viewed as something racially derogatory (like the Leslie Jones stuff a few months back) then it can be addressed head on (as it was with Leslie). That's their problem, not hers/ours. To me, that's easy to deal with and better to see it coming than to hide.

it works different when it's universal humor (The Cosby Show/My Wife And Kids/Blackish) vs. black shit (Martin/Sanford & Son/Good Times and What's Happening where JJ and Rerun could have been like minstrel acts if white people embraced those shows)

Ellen is white.

white people laughing at a spectacle that reinforces black entertainers as caricatures in their mind (as opposed to talented humans) is not "accepting us". The same white people who love Savion Glover tap dancing arent there for the social commentary in his work

Those shows are staples of black entertainment. You mean to tell me you'd be ashamed of them if white people embraced them and laughed at the shows for reasons different than yours? Those shows ran for seasons and opened hella doors for more shows. Look at what we're discussing:

-chronicles a business owner and his son trying to make it from lower class to something better. A business owner.

-A poor project family, avoiding the pitfalls of poverty to still raise a strong 2 parent family.

-A teenager and his group of friends navigating life with his single mother trying to work toward something better in life.

JJ and Rerun were part of black America fam. Natural swag through all that adversity and talent to groove at any size. If some bigot a**wipe wants to diminish that by viewing it as anything but...that's their problem. Not ours.

I'm not for the pandering and the house negro rules man.

>Ellen is white.

And Tiff is black and should have the same freedom to do what Ellen does without us going *gasp* 'the white folx might see her as a buffoon if she keeps dancing!'

True equality is being able to do what they do without any negative connotation to it. And that's what we should be focusing on.

>white people laughing at a spectacle that reinforces black
>entertainers as caricatures in their mind (as opposed to
>talented humans) is not "accepting us". The same white people
>who love Savion Glover tap dancing arent there for the social
>commentary in his work

Fam, we don't need their acceptance. We just need equal footing. Cut the check, expose everyone to the talent, let it kick down doors for more opportunity and normalize us as the talent we display.

Bigots will never go away but the way we deal with them is the key. We should never diminish for the sake of a bigot.

if DYNOMITE and pop-locking were all that got a great response from whites, it would sort of dehumanize the roles and take away from the overall beauty of black people being on TV in the 70s and 80s

her role in ghostbusters. She got some off-hand and direct racial slander as part of the critique. But social media came to her rescue and she got hella support to combat it.

she paid her dues, and I dare say Tiffany is just more palatable because she's conventionally attractive.

Leslie is a LOT of black woman for some people.


that's a LOT of marginalization, and I'm sure those SNL writing rooms are cringe-worthy.

Leslie Jones is in not one but multiple Allstate commercials where the punchline is "scary black woman intimidates white guy". I dont know why she felt obligated to do that, but hey.

I havent seen Ghostbusters but Im sure 'extra blackness' wasnt a necessary plot device

94. "you introduced Taraji Henson into the discussion"
In response to Reply # 93


  

          

she is accepted/respected/embraced reasons that Tiffany Haddish has not come to be yet

so calling her a funny version of Taraji is not accurate

In response to Reply # 0


          

It felt very "We are laughing at you not with you."

I think when white folks fall in love she's gonna make more and more money if she has the right folks behind her but she might risk black folks thinking she's coon-ing it up a lil too much and they might turn.

TPAB didnt go platinum with black people buying it ... you been to a kendrick show?

Shit will be fine...

How many products made for black people are actually only consumed exclusively by black people?

Insecure's audience is majority white... as is Atlanta's

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

too many black in-jokes on Insecure. my white friends hardly cracked a smile when i tried to get them to watch it.

meanwhile they rave about Atlanta because it reminds them of their white sitcoms.

aired


which means the networks were willing to try/take a chance


as far as to KEEPING them on the air, then (maybe) those other audiences factor in

46. "marketed to us?"
In response to Reply # 43


  

          

right.

as if white ppl didn't see the marketing.

unless they exclusively marketed via billboards in the hood there was no marketing that white ppl didn't also see.

have we not learned yet?

since motherfucking JAZZ in motherfucking Harlem in the 20s....

WHITE PPL ARE UP ON WHAT ENTERTAINS US. they are interested in anything that we dig 'for ourselves'.

hello?

this ain't new.

marketing to 'us' is the way they market to themselves.

nothing mainstream that's for 'us' survives unless THEY get on it.

how many examples must i list?

surely you see this.

fuck you.

I wasn't saying it along the lines of:

48. "HBO ain't bothering w/a show"
In response to Reply # 47


  

          

that's just for 'us'.

neither is FX.

not unless it crosses over to THEM.

how many tv networks and cable channels started out w/shows for 'us' that crossed over to them 'them'?

run the list.

you already see it.

again - nothing in mainstream American entertainment survives unless THEY get on it.

so yeah, it might start out as an 'us' thing. but if it survives beyond the first year or 2...it's gotta become a 'them' thing too. or else it dies.

fuck you.

I dont think Kevin Hart or Chris Rock are the same around their homeboys as they are in professional settings, meanwhile Corey Holcomb and Katt Williams' careers have low ceilings for a reason. as opposed to Tiffany who is being groomed for A list stardom while being something that doesnt translate well to whites

We can't tell.

Are you worried that blacks who act niggerish in mainstream entertainment will have short careers?

Are you worried that they will be made to unniggafy to be successful? That we will lose them to selling out?

Are you worried that we will lose the chance to be entertained by niggerdom bc white ppl will snap them up?

fuck you.

102. "she's hosting SNL this week"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Maya Rudolph aside (who was former cast), Tiffany is the first black woman comedian to do so

to be clear, I don't have an issue with her rising up on the A-list. I just hope she's prepared for what comes with the white gaze outside of fame and money

I glossed over "comedian".

Truth be told what Black female comedian has been big enough to host SNL...Whoopi maybe.

She was on Watch What Happens Live and Andy Cohen was doing "hood girl" shtick (neck rolling etc), it rubbed me wrong

Also Trevor Noah and his white audience couldnt laugh harder at her stories of underprivileged struggle

Im here for her, I just wish white (oriented) media wouldnt treat her like a zoo animal. I also wish there were more (black) outlets that understood who she is so that interviews wouldnt feel like National Geographic

even they were laughing at how outlandish her stories are.

I'm not even sure how to feel about her "cooning," but I do know she hasn't shown much range yet. The non-stop "girl from the hood keepin' it real" schtick is gonna grow old pretty quick.

She is very attractive. But I don't find anything she says or does funny. Her few minutes on Kimmel talking about Jada propelled her pretty far.

Her comedy skits are stupid and her poor black ghetto girl theme rising from the flame makes people (black and white) feel good.

BUT she is making money adn making other black people money. So fuck it. This is America.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Circa Singled Out.

What are the "wrong" reasons to laugh at her comedy?

Most comedians get by on creating an absurdly outlandish, self deprecating version of themselves. Eddie Murphy was one of the VERY few to pull off a rock star sense of cool in the process, but he's such an outlier it's barely worth mentioning....which is why it's worth mentioning.

Sure, she'll have some of the same horrible folks in the crowd who watch Blazing Saddles and jerk off everytime an n-bomb drops.

But most people will rock with her. If she's bringing an authentic brand of her own blackness in such a way that America at large identifies and connects with her, more power to her. There is no downside to that. She has very endearing endearing and relatable qualities that extend beyond mere racial voyeurism.

To me there's a wide line gap between Amos and Andy and the general silly self deprecating schtick that comedians have done forever.

Just like how Jim Carrey or Robin Williams (RIP) is/was in most interviews, always on. Sit down and shut the fuck up.

In response to Reply # 121


          

her jokes aren't thought out? her transitions aren't fluid? her diction ain't up to par? she's too crass to be that fine? lol

I don't think folks are going at you for saying coon. this post reads like blackness should keep within our people and that white folks laffing at the same thing we're laffing at is inherently problematic. in some cases, I can see that, but I don't feel that with Tiffany.

side bar:
Is Tiffany Black or black? what's the distintion? who makes the call? is the ruling based on the physical or based on the black american asthetic? a combo?

I haven’t seen the clip but she has always been a Martin type comedian. She is going to make faces, dance and heeeey!!!! for a few laughs.

We can’t like these types of comedians but call them coons as soon as their act crosses over.

That being said, I don’t know how far she went with it but more than likely it’s the same shit she BEEN doing.

In response to Reply # 138


  

          



In a fair & just world, it would be alright for comedians to make faces, act silly and do dumb stuff.

But in America, all of those things were used to stereotype us and keep us down. So black comedians have to be careful about how they do that type of comedy.

It's unfair and it impedes the kinds of comedy that black folks can do. But I understand.

My white cousin-in-law sent me a clip of the "Video Game" skit and thought it was hilarious. I thought it was type coonish. Didnt see her again until the trailer for the Tracy Morgan show on TBS, then the Groupon commercial, then last night. Have since seen her on Colbert (didnt watch past the dancing...smmfh), so yeah...I guess this is who she is...but are we cool with that?

I'm not...but thats just me

Cause being herself got her an 800K deal.

Y’all niggas out here “evolving” on a 50K salary.

She’s fine until her time is up and then she can either broaden her talents or retire with a few mill and chill.

that is NOT the same thing as Tiffany Haddish being HERSELF no matter how much you disapprove of her lack of education or "decorum" (as defined by white western culture)...NONE of that makes her a coon because she is AUTHENTIC.

cookery is FAKE and i'm tired of y'all dumbasses using words and phrases you don't understand.

It is the same thing. Give her a little credit and stop trying to excuse buffoonery by calling her stupid. You do know that black folk lived during some of the worse times and still had self respect, dignity and didn't use lack of education as an excuse.

The only thing dumb is the backwards logic that makes excuses for shuffling.

but I don't think her stand up is that good.

she can tell a funny story and she is great as an actress but I think she is terrible at stand up.

that's just my personal opinion.

I think you have to dive a little deeper.

I’ve never seen a full hour from her but from what I seen her comedy is mostly being loud, dancing and physical type comedy which there is a word for but I can’t think of it right now.

When your comedy is screaming or tripping over stuff like Jack Tripper it’s not fair to say “but look at one of the best out right now, he doesn’t come across like that to white folks”

or dancing and being loud.

I think the term I’m looking for is physical humor. The majority of her stand up that I watched was dancing, screaming ayyye and giving a hand job with her feet.

When she was performing to mostly black audiences, this was her act. Literally this same act.

Why is she supposed to change up because a new group joined her fan base?

My only issue with her is that she's still doing the nae nae like it's the summer of 2015

I've been a fan of hers since 2014 and I really really got on the train when I heard her interview on The Champs and then The Crab Feast

shes the most real public person at the moment. what you see is what you get.

How would you react if I went to your job and told you to stop being you?

I'm not saying she needs some media training or some more training...she definitely does.

Her audiobook was not good but it was very much authentic.

She just needs a polish. FOH with this "cooning" shit.

I would argue Lil Pump is coon over Tiffany

now if she wants to have a legit career she may try to branch out and do a serious role to show she has some chops but nah.. she should be who she is, that's what got her famous.

In response to Reply # 134


          

I understand why it makes us uncomfortable sometimes but that's *our* shit to deal with.. not hers. She's a comedian and has been the same type of comedian, irrespective of audience, since she started. That we're OK with her brand of comedy -- which, btw, is just slapstick -- until it's in front of white people is some shit we need to fix about *us* not *her*.

174. "why?"
In response to Reply # 172


  

          

considering the stereotypes that are prone to black women.
ghetto and loud

funny. we're discussing "code switching" -because often when we're imitated it's like Tiffany. not Oprah, Michelle O or Beyonce...

and no disrespect but Beyonce was Tiff when she first made it.

Hell, she still struggles saying her own name.

Remember when Popeyes was her favorite food for dressing rooms?

and I love Popeyes.

I just hate how WE can't let OUR people be Black as fuck.

some will have class and some will be loud and ignant.

"That seems to be the only way she knows how to be funny."


          

I find her more silly than funny, but I really don't think she puts extras on it for white people. She was exactly the same on the Def Comedy Jam celebration in front of a crowd of Black people.

There *are* certain things that are meant for in-group interactions, and that goes for pretty much all groups. As mentioned above, we have a certain set of things that were used to stereotype us and make fun of us, so it makes sense that we'd have issues with those things on some level. I don't have the answers to how we should deal with that as a collective, but I can say that I don't get "coon" vibes from her. With her, I think this would become a historical/societal conversation about why the "ghetto girl/guy" humor is the go-to for so many Black comedians, our position in society etc. I do think that's a conversation worth having and being put on front street. Despite the fact that Tiffany's humor might stem from some deeper level of Black deprivation, I think she's pretty innocent overall. Don't get me wrong, people can innocently "coon" so to speak, but I can't even say she's doing that, b/c as was also mentioned, she doesn't throw us under the bus to make white folks laugh or over-value white folks or anything like that. She's just a silly Black woman. I can't be mad at a Black woman who feels like she plays on negative stereotypes of Black woman either tho... especially when I see that ex-girlfriend skit. That was a little much for me. The Oscars wasn't tho.

women who are prospering and in the spotlight, so I think it takes the pressure off of her. She is the "funny Black lady who I see every day in the break room, who teases me for my unseasoned leftovers, and heats up Gumbo on lunch break" and hey, nothing wrong with it to me.

to remember the type of black comedy that was everywhere in the '90s.

whenever I see her I remember Martin and Bill Bellamy and Chris Tucker and Jamie Foxx on TV and making movies like How to Be a Player.

she's doing a thing and it's kind of wild how against it her own people are; I'd probably be overwhelmed by her in person and put off but she's great for the screen.

when they did that Def Jam special damn near every comedian thanked Martin for giving them a shot.

There will always be slapstick.

It's not just slapstick, Marlon and Shawn used that same excuse they came for them. The whole we just doing what Jim Carey do. If it stopped at slapstick that would be one thing but they go from that to doing anything. We don't need Mantan and Step n fetch it.

The desensitized don't recognize that they've successfully been desensitized. The subsequent residual-self-blindness allows the cooning to continue unchallenged as a result. Such a sad cycle.

now you've moved the goalposts. We aren't talking about Tiffany's ideas or political beliefs, so that doesn't fit.

We talking about Black comedians or celebs who act "ghetto" and aren't polished and how other blacks look down on them

Sherriff Clarke and Clarence Thomas are simply in the sunken place. that's a whole other post.

actually it does because multiple people have already said that her being her for a black audience is different now that white people see her and are also laughing...folks are uncomfortable with and/or read into that white laughter as ridicule...even though they have no actual facts to back that up...therefore that sensitivity around white laughter is pretty much sensitivity to "white gaze" on unapologetic blackness...which all blackness is by default but we only use that term for black folks who are doing "embarrassingly black" things

Not at all, goalpost in the same place. You said and I quote

"the whole Black American diaspora is valid...from the high
>>>rise, to the suburbs, to the ghetto"

You didn't say just comedy or comedians.

>We talking about Black comedians or celebs who act "ghetto"
>and aren't polished and how other blacks look down on them

"the whole Black American diaspora" Can't expand it and shrink it to make your point.

>Sherriff Clarke and Clarence Thomas are simply in the sunken

It's the same thing Clarke, Thomas and Tiffany are doing it for money and the extras that come with it.

Calling her acting ghetto and unpolished is just a way to justify it.

I'm not multiple people and I said none of that. The problem is when the standard is that low and it's accepted, promoted and defended you get garbage coming up behind it. Cardi B, Tiffany Haddish, Marlon Wayans laying the foundation for garbage.

*hoping this doesn't go left....*

>Sherriff Clarke and Clarence Thomas are simply in the sunken
>place. that's a whole other post.

so Haddish gets the "do you" and it should be acceptable. cool

stop calling "folks" coons. straight

how do you not see what you are doing here (in reference to clarke and thomas) not as the same thing but just from the opposite direction?

you're going hard for "just be who you are". fine

we gotta get past that? sure.

but at the exact same time you're stopping *just short* of calling these folks sell-outs (yes, you didn't use those words, but lets not act like at the core, you might as well be)

you go hard for women. cool

lest this be considered a gender thing, is condoleeza rice in the "sunken place" too?

how come the other folk (who i'm not advocating for, but just using as examples) don't get fed with same spoon?

to act like ofays don't have a softer spot for one of us who is considered "safe" (be it because they are funny, or willing to vote for some b%$^&*, or whatever) is a bit disingenuous, no?

so, if they see Haddish just being her and they make her famous because that fits their sense of allowable, and the impact on the rest of us is reinforcement of "be more like *this*".

why are we acting like we shouldn't see some level of "danger" (in quotes, for lack of a better term) in that

note: I'm not trying to start a fight, I'm legit trying to see what (how) you think. earlier in this thing you questioned someone's logic, and i'm left wondering if consistency isn't worth considering too

271. "The difference"
In response to Reply # 241


  

          

Clarke and Thomas are pandering for "white" political acceptance which resides in 'slave mentality/dependence' and turn their backs on overtly accepted black belief systems. They aren't just 'doing them'. They are actively trying to be 'house negroes'.

Haddish has been her since day one. Black audiences are where she started and her act has always been who she is today. It has not changed.

The key difference here is that as she's gotten more notoriety, and mind you, this notoriety was from doing HER in a BLACK film, mainstream (white) audiences have gravitated toward her. She's not doing it for them or their acceptance.

It's like saying, "be hood until you blow then do 'dignified' black comedy so bigoted white folx won't judge you". Which is the key argument here. She shouldn't have to change because a handful of people NOW care how bigoted white people might digest her act.

And let's not act like we don't recognize that some white people aren't bigoted and actual get her comedy. This is like somebody telling Gary Owens to switch up because of his race. Why for? He's always be afro-friendly. No need to white-wash.

Let Tiff do Tiff...it's working.

look at what you typed

- they are pandering for acceptance
- turning their backs on overtly accepted Black (capitalize that mayne)
- actively trying

okay....

that's straight up judgement that could easily be flipped on ANYBODY

literally anyone

its an assertion with no back-up

you don't like 'em or their ways, fine

but we are defending Haddish who made a movie where she pees while on a zipline and gives instructions on how to give BJs using fruit

other than stay paid, what is *she* trying to do that makes her LESS pandering and destructive to "overtly accepted belief systems"?

(note: that's a crazy thing to read on a board where folks take pride in THEIR rejection of everything from the concepts of manhood, to femininity, to child discipline, to God, to.... you name it. US - as a generation - rejecting "old ways" and "being progressive" is fine, but its "respectability politics" if you imply that there is such a thing a personal culpability even in the face of systematic racism. but I completely digress....)

i keep saying this - it isn't about Haddish, or "uncle thomas" or any of them other folks per se

(except Larry Elder...F%^& him and every oxygen molecule that doesn't choke him to death when he breathes)

it IS about these ill sliding scales we have for who is cool/genuine and not

>Haddish has been her since day one.

this keeps getting repeated, so it has become the a narrative we've accepted.

but who here has known her since "Day One" (or truly knows her at all)? IS she not simply a comedienne we are wrapping a story around, followed by emotional attachment?

We don't *know* this whole deal isn't her character she is committed to.

We relate because, hell, who doesn't like a good Groupon? who doesn't empathize with the stories of her being homeless and in abusive relationships? WE (I included) want her to succeed cuz SHE IS US on a few levels.

But past that, lets assume someone here DOES know her or HAS followed her entire career. Note: I actually DO know a filmmaker dude out here in LA who has known her for years. he mentioned knowing her around the time right before girls trip, but we didn't get into anything about her. Observance doesn't mean she didn't simply find the character/voice she's rolling with pre-blow-up, and is committed to it.

Hell, even if it's 100% authentic that begs the point of whether authenticity inherently gets you a pass.

Back to Clarke, Thomas et. al, if - somewhere along the line - something in them shaped them to be all-in relative to THEIR thing, why is it cool to reject them out the "Black Club" even thought THEY might be being just as 100% authentic to "their truth"

>She's not doing it for them or their acceptance.

She was on the oscars

THAT is Black now?

it's cool though, you seem to be saying (if I may summarize)
- stay the way you were before you blew up
- don't hate congratulate - she's just doing what she gotta do

to me, there are holes in that. again: should there NOT be some awareness, or sense of responsibility to "us", that plays into HOW you represent in "mixed company"

if you say no, then be mindful it may not always be someone you LIKE "doing them" and its hypocritical to get salty when that goes down

>Let Tiff do Tiff...it's working.

No doubt. But if we are gonna do "end justifies the means" its still not clear why don't we say: "Let Clarence Thomas be Clarence Thomas...it got him on the supreme court" or "let Rice be Rice, it got her to Secretary of State"

Here's my back up: http://www.ontheissues.org/Court/Clarence_Thomas_Civil_Rights.htm

For Clarence at least. He's always discounted the effects of systemic racism on Black people. And as someone who can influence how things fall in that realm, he's extremely short sighted and seems to undervalue bigotry when looking at law. Now granted, his motives are to him alone but my assumption is, he's a product of the world he wants to live in, which to me is 'white acceptance'.

Affirmative Action is stigmatizing? Yeah, maybe to people who don't need the opportunity due to bigoted policy and practices.

>but we are defending Haddish who made a movie where she pees
>while on a zipline and gives instructions on how to give BJs
>using fruit

Actually, Jada was the one who pee'd. Jussayin'. Also, that's what the script called for. We didn't do this for Bride's Maids or The Hangover or Bad Moms. Again, equality means we can do the same as you sans judgement or different judgement.

>other than stay paid, what is *she* trying to do that makes
>her LESS pandering and destructive to "overtly accepted belief
>systems"?

I really don't see Tiffany Haddish saying Blacks in America should be accountable for their own success regardless of the social constructs limiting their opportunities to succeed.

I don't see Tiffany Haddish on TV saying things like this:

"In 2015, Clarke received criticism for his statement on his podcast: "Let me tell you why blacks sell drugs and involve themselves in criminal behavior instead of a more socially acceptable lifestyle: because they're uneducated, they're lazy and they're morally bankrupt. That's why."

Instead, I see Haddish telling comical stories about hanging with Black celebrities she admires and the funny quirks of class (how Jada not know what a Groupon is?).

HUGE difference there don't ya think?

>(note: that's a crazy thing to read on a board where folks
>take pride in THEIR rejection of everything from the concepts
>of manhood, to femininity, to child discipline, to God, to....
>you name it. US - as a generation - rejecting "old ways" and
>"being progressive" is fine, but its "respectability politics"
>if you imply that there is such a thing a personal culpability

>digress....)

Yeah we do all those things but the common denominator here is that America isn't good to Black people and we should continually fight for our right to be equal, respected and given the same opportunities. Tiffany Haddish is an example of that belief. Clarke and Thomas are not.

Yes, it does...if that authenticity is rooted in genuine Blackness. I mean, people are getting mad because she celebrates by doing the Na-Na, wore the same dress to different award shows and won't code switch at the Oscars.

C'mon.

And let me be clear, everything Black isn't 'good' but neither is everything of any other race. There is no 'perfect Negro'. We need to be accepted and more importantly, accept ourselves...flaws and all.

>Back to Clarke, Thomas et. al, if - somewhere along the line -
>something in them shaped them to be all-in relative to THEIR
>thing, why is it cool to reject them out the "Black Club" even
>thought THEY might be being just as 100% authentic to "their
>truth"

Yes, as their views are detriments to the "Black Club" and fuels the same type of mentalities that provoke 'respectability' politics.

>She was on the oscars

As press, not so she could "get in good with the white folx" and once there, she didn't sound like Bryant Gumble either.

>THAT is Black now?

Black people can't do the Oscars? lol

>it's cool though, you seem to be saying (if I may summarize)

What I'm saying is, grow from your roots and be authentically you in that. Let no perceived misrepresentation of 'the group' dissuade you from your path if you are indeed not intently pandering for others and denigrating Blacks.

And secondly, that 'what happens when white america falls in love with Tiffany Haddish?' is a BS question rooted in self hate and diminishes the hard work she put into her career to be who she is today.

>if you say no, then be mindful it may not always be someone

It's funny how on one hand, we don't want other races to lump us into one category and stereotype us (Black people have lower IQ's, Blacks are hypersexual, Blacks are violent and savage) but the first time someone tries to be authentically Black (per their environment and life as a Black person) the first thing we say is "but remember, you represent the group!".

We can't 'shame' white people about Trump or Weinstein or Charles Manson or Charlie Sheen because they have the freedom to confidently spout...one does not represent the whole. Why is it that we can't have that same comfort, ignore the bigots and celebrate Tiffany's success...even if you don't find her comedy funny?

And yet, most of us code switch in professional environments...

294. "dap to you (4 real)"
In response to Reply # 279


          

thanks for the discourse

you said some things that indicate a misunderstanding of the point(s) I was making (e.g. "black people can't do the oscars..) but that stuff is minor

FINAL SAY FROM ME:

I'm not picking a side

I like Haddish, and I ain't mad at her, or anything she has done (so far)

I am MUCH more interested in how we "get through this thing called life" (c) prince

its hard navigating through all this externally and internally imposed stuff

yet, while a lot of it IS messed up, I don't think "everybody dowhatchalike" works... there has to be SOME kind of standard or else chaos reigns

i don't like a whole bunch of specific folks. Truth be told, I think if we are gonna use the terms then thomas, clarke, freakin-steve-harvey, child-molester-a$$-r-kelly, and larry i-hate-that-bastid-for-real elder are bigger "coons" (sellouts, uncle toms) than haddish has been PRIMARLY because of the widespread detriment their behavior causes

haddish tells raunchy jokes in a loud-a$$ hoodcat way (pretty much all of us have at least one of those directly related to us, or at worst have seen it)

I'm not shamed of/by that - and I really don't care what ofays do with it because they gone foe regardless

but there gotta be a line

you modeling some self-destructive behavior? ... cant fade you

likewise, for those who do inverted "respectability politics" but then INVOKE "respectability politics" as a weapon against the ones OF US you don't like: I legit think you (holla hitdog) are part of the problem

now i'm off the soapbox. thanks again for helping move the needle of (my) understanding forward

I think trying to draw a line in the sand that all Black people measure is a bit of a slippery slope. Let's just say, morality and social acceptance is so subjective and fluid, what's good today, might not be good tomorrow and no one will agree on what's 'over the line'.

For that reason, 'do you' has to kind of be the stance. So long as the person isn't denigrating Black folx and cow-towing for (bigoted) white acceptance, we have to look at it on a case by case basis.

Otherwise, I agree with pretty much everything you said.

In response to Reply # 296


          

there are too many variables and gray areas for lines to be drawn.

and as Selah stated, there are far worse messages coming from people that don't tell jokes vs Haddish's over the top hood antics.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme

so let's talk about why its uncomfortable...because i've felt that too, but in 2018, i'm pushing past it.

it's uncomfortable because we are concerned and sensitive about what white people think about us.

and that's what i'm saying needs to end. the best behaved black person is still Black, period. there is no amount of respectable behavior that changes that. Barack and Michelle Obama proved that...racists and well meaning whites still put Trump in office.

our "image" is irrelevant.

so we all need to just be ourselves, while we upend and undo this white supremacist patriarchy cuz acceptance ain't the way.

In response to Reply # 207


  

          

I’m not watching her like, “oh no what are the white folks gonna think”. I don’t find her brand of humor funny.

I do know white folks tend to stereotype us based on what they see. By way of example, during a business meeting with a white lady - for whatever reason she thought it was cool to talk ghetto. I couldn’t help wondering why she thought it was ok. More than likely she’s mimicking a behavior....be it tv or who she knows. It’s things of this nature that make me uncomfortable!

like, Tiffany, you and everyone else I have every right to be who I am too.

that woman is basic, ignorant and insecure and that isn't the fault of any Black person. Therefore you have no need to feel uncomfortable for her lack of decorum. So the person that needs to change is her and not Tiffany.

White America purposely created and continues to encourage (via discriminatory laws) Black poverty and miseducation. So when someone breaks outta that shit and makes it, I LOVE it when white people gotta face what the fuck they created and refuse to undo. I need the Tiffanys and the Cardis of the world to keep rubbing their face in it.


>like, Tiffany, you and everyone else I have every right to be
>who I am too.
>

and we 100% agree there, sister. I'm just wishing and wanting for you to let go of caring about what white people think of any of us.

instead, she made you uncomfortable because you are still worried about what they think of us.

It’s hard not to cause it’s America but like Damali said, we have to get over that type of thinking.
