damnit all you were doing was calling out the hypocrisy the black community does in terms of supporting white supremacy! it's not fucking brain surgery to understand. now ppl are going in for the kill, thinking u blindly stan for tre and that ur a white supremacists. invalidating truth a man says cuz his fuck ups are more visible wtf is wrong with y'all

The funny thing is I stan for Chescaleigh a hell of a lot more lmao. 

I love her. She is one of my favorite people period. And I am sad that she probably doesnt like me now but what can you do? *kanye shrug* 

Everybody who calls something out I always encourage to start with themselves, and im not even talking about Chesca but everybody. Because i’m human too.

Because I can sit and talk about white girls screwing over black girls all day but I’m not gonna pretend like “FANCY” aint on my phone because it is. I can talk about how the black community glorifies violence and makes it into a joke but I’m not gonna pretend like I didn’t reblog Sharkeisha and laugh my ass off at the memes because I did. I’m not gonna sit and act like I dont do things, say things, and inadvertently support things that do harm to me and people like me- because I do. We all do, on some level, in some way.

And that is what Tre makes fun of. His good videos, his real good shit, is funny because its relatable. And its hurtful because it reminds us of what we really support, and of how people really see us. And also of how we see ourselves. Its supposed to make you laugh but also make you uncomfortable, to make you think, about why it is we— for example— will act crazy and ignorant just for 15 minutes of fame. We will put on minstrel shows with a smile. 

Tyler Perry wouldnt exist of we didnt keep watching. Real Housewives wouldnt exist if we didnt keep watching. Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Rick Ross, hell even Ray J— wouldnt exist if we didnt keep listening. But we are.

Why? 

We keep watching, keep listening, keep gassing up these things that do not support us. We keep doing these things that are not good for us, for our mentality, for our community, and for our next generation. We’re fucking up. We’ve been fucking up for a long time. But we’re mad at Tre for making fun of it?

look

Im not going to pretend like Tre is the best youtuber in the struggle.

But I’m also not going to act like the things he’s making fun of have zero merit.

We, black people, support these things ALL the time. Everyday. Happily.

And until that changes, until everybody side-eyeing him gets their shit together and stops giving their money, giving their views, giving their business, giving their positive acknowledgment to people and content that throw them under the bus— Nothing will change.

That is literally all Im saying.

so saying someone should look at the ways they engage in misogynoir is suddenly telling them to single handedly dismantle white supremacy... ok then

From now on if you want your sassy anon questions to be answered with anything more than an eyeroll and a “delete” I want either $2 added to my paypal [and I will check] or I want a thought out rebuttal that doesn’t make a poor attempt to twist/omit my words and miss every single point so you can say you “got me” on the internet because this shit is sad and I’m not going to waste my time so you can either pay me or do better.

So now its every black youtuber’s responsibility to personally be all about “the struggle” ? I really hate this idea that to be “socially conscious” means you have to all-day-everyday sit around making political statements. Most of Tre’s videos are commentaries. Satire. Exaggerated tropes meant to poke fun at the absurd stereotypes and “crab mentality” of the black community to make you go “wow we’re messed up.”

Like it or not, black culture DOES glorify harmful behaviors and “problematic” practices on a daily basis but whenever this is brought up someone never fails to shift all the blame back on to white people. They have a part to play, certainly, but so do we- and we’re not playing it. Look on twitter, look on instagram, look on vine, turn on the radio, listen to how regular people talk— Tre is doing absolutely nothing but making fun of what’s already there and its there because this is what we support. This is what we encourage, co-sign, and inadvertently teach. 

So how would everybody who co-singed the above suggest Tre single-handedly “deconstruct” white supremacy? Tre has bills to pay. Tre has eat just like you. So unless all of you are willing to stop supporting all these rappers/actors/singers/comedians/personalities/tv-shows/movies that do the exact same thing— let tre live. 

But y’all won’t do that. You’ll laugh your heads off at “Real Housewives of ___”, go see the new Tyler Perry movie, walk around singing “THESE HOES AINT LOYAL~”, then turn around and criticize people like Tre and Shannah Malcolm for rolling with it. 

Pro tip: regurgitating problematic ideas and yelling “satire!” does not make it satire. Honestly, I’m not interested in “Hoes be like episode 3 million”, but if that’s what you’re into, awesome. I think Tre’s crazy talented and clearly very smart, and I was incredibly proud of him when he came out on YouTube because that took courage and was super inspiring. But I’m not here for anyone who makes a career out of demeaning themselves and other black people. Not Tyler Perry, not the Housewives, Vine & Instagram famous people or anyone else. So you can miss me with that assumption.

Yes, people of all backgrounds say and do problematic things and will continue to do them as long as that is rewarded by mainstream society. That’s….not being debated. I take less issue with those folks and more with the system that favors that type of content over more positive and intelligent content because it creates space for only ONE type of black person to be portrayed. But that’s the awesome thing about YouTube and social media. You don’t HAVE to stick to those stereotypes to be successful! At the end of the day, black content creators are welcome to say and do whatever they want on the internet and as consumers we’re allowed to respond, which….is exactly what we’re doing. 

No one is asking Tre to “single-handily deconstruct white supremacy”. That’s ridiculous. But let’s not kid ourselves into thinking it isn’t disingenuous to say one thing about fighting white supremacy, while at the same time using for your professional gain. Make all the “black people love chicken and watermelon” videos you want, but don’t think I won’t give you the side-eye the minute you spit some consciousness as if those videos don’t exist. THAT’S the issue here. Not just the content, but acting as if that content isn’t part of a bigger problem.

As for deconstructing white-supremacy, I do A LOT. Including speaking at colleges and high schools around the country and creating content that has been seen by millions and breaks down important issues in ways that are easily digestible. I don’t just sit on Tumblr all day talking shit. Soooo uh, before you go running your mouth about what I do and don’t do, do your homework. Thanks. 

What I dont understand is how you can admit these behaviors are demeaning and backwards then claim its not satire when people like Tre make fun of them— when that is the LITERAL definition of satire.

"The use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues." You dont get to change the definitions of words and practices just because someone uses it in a way you don’t approve of. 

Tre’s target is the black community. To me- thats obvious. I’m not surprised in the least bit that he’s conscious, with a name like thisisacommentary I expect it. And yes, the content itself is part of a bigger problem, but his content is supposed to mock things that shouldn’t be glorified in the first place— but for some reason they are. Because we, black people, think its funny and cool and “normal” on some level. 

Who looks at these videos and legitimately believes this is an honest portrayal of black people? 

…Dont answer that. 

I’m not defending the behaviors, I’m saying that its not fair to act is if the black community doesn’t roll with this like its going out of style. We, as a collective, ENCOURAGE these things every time we watch these shows, or buy these songs, or tweet these vines/videos of black girls beating eachother up, or repost these memes. 

That is what Tre is making fun of. 

As for what you personally do- never said you didn’t. >_> That was a general statement aimed at a collective, hence the “y’all”. Meaning the millions of black folks on and off this site who in one way or another continue to support these things but point fingers at Tre for giving them what they ask for. Do I really need the “not ALL” disclaimer? Apparently so.

Speak Tré! YASS!!

No even ceasefire though, covert strikes but in broad daylight

He learning

And what is he doing to contribute to deconstructing white supremacy by making a living off of anti-Black racialized misogyny acting out exaggerated racist misogynistic stereotypes about Black women? like can someone HELP ME OUT when that’s literally his job…

I’m glad somebody said it.

  • You can’t lay a certain way in bed
  • You take pill after pill and it still doesn’t help
  • You bloat and gain weight
  • You might have anemia (iron deficiency) which can not clot your blood causing so much blood loss it’ll be deadly
  • You never feel full
  • Everything irritates you
  • You will cry a lot
  • Once you get up in the morning, your center of gravity has shifted and all the blood settling in you during the night will now rush out of you causing you to clench your legs tightly to avoid leaking
  • You get made fun of for having a period ?////?/?/
  • You’re forced to go to school/work
  • You get told that you’re overreacting

but ya know, fixing your dick discreetly in public is bad too
