She said play the flute. Heh heh.

I think posts where I have no idea what’s going on, who the people are, and why I should take anything they do seriously, are my favorites. I’m always eager to learn.

rcocean said...

"I personally don't ascribe to just one thing.... That's why the colors for LGBTQ+ are a rainbow! Because there's a spectrum and right now we try to keep it black and white. That's just not working for me." She has a strong LGBT following and has dubbed her fans "Lizzbians".

Per Wikipedia: "She moved to Minneapolis in 2011."

Why would anyone do that?

tim in vermont said...

Where is Althouse going to point the laser dot next?

rcocean said...

Twerking is but one choreographic gesture within bounce. Twerking traces its origins to the West African dance called Mapouka, which has existed for centuries. In 2013, "What is Twerking" became the top "What is" search on the Google search engine.

"According to Kelechi, twerking is more than shaking your bum, it is a feminist movement that she uses to empower the women who come to her studio. "Dance, it’s a channel that you can use to express so much: joy, pain, sadness, you can express so much through it so I started to use that as a way of really communicating the things I felt there were really no words for," Kelechi says"


Doesn't EVERYTHING empower women?

rehajm said...

Michaels shtick is fitness. Lizzos is not...

rhhardin said...

I'm guessing she's fat and produces music I don't like.

rcocean said...

Insert comment about Althouse comment section.

Fernandistein said...

White woman expresses concern for the unhealthy fatitude of a grotesquely obese black woman; in this day and age you'd think some hijinks would ensue, but they didn't. Oh, well.

She said play the flute.

It's not dirty, it's from Firesign Theater.

Leland said...

I don't celebrate Lizzo's music because picks an obnoxious key with bad chords. Then there is the normal syncopated rhythm that is the mathematical money for modern Pop and the death of good music writing. But in a rainbow world, I suppose Michael's can criticize music based on food preferences.

Fernandistein said...

Jillian Michaels apologizes for not celebrating the black body of an obese black woman: "As I've stated repeated, we are all beautiful, worthy and equally deserving."

Like the beautiful Qassem Solemani, ferinstance, who was probably a "plus size" twerking fashion model in his younger days.

traditionalguy said...

VICTIMS are everywhere I tell you. And these victims that can't control other people's thoughts and speech about them. The planet earth has become uninhabitable I tell you.

The right to be fat and stupid may be a sacred right, but nobody has to stop laughing at them.

tim maguire said...

I have a vague notion of what twerking is. Otherwise, that post was gibberish to me.

Rusty said...

The chick with the red hair, that's a guy, right?

J. Farmer said...

Every ten years or so some enormous fat black chick shows up who is supposedly going to teach us how beautiful it is to be morbidly obese. They usually end up getting gastric bypass or dropping dead.

The Crack Emcee said...

"Twerk and play the flute"?

Now why didn't I think of that? It's probably playing the flute that really puts that routine - and a career - over-the-top, I bet. And here I was, just twerkin' for my supper. Oh well:

"Everything I dislike about my ex-wife gets fixed by Donald Trump" so I don't see why Lizzo should be any different:

Enjoy it while it lasts, Girl - you're done.

J.Farmer: yup. Precious.

Mind you, white women have one in Chrissy Metz. She gets leading roles in movies. It is kind of odd to watch, because she'll be in frame with three men, and she's larger than they are combined, and everyone acts as if it's normal.

"Per Wikipedia: "She moved to Minneapolis in 2011."

Why would anyone do that?"

Long story short: Back-in-the-day, Prince - who lived in Minneapolis - discovered (despite his many talents) he couldn't rap, so first he secretly released "The Black Album" before he started collecting really "black" blacks to make his act look more authentic, with Lizzo being one of the last before he died.

J. Farmer said...

Black women heavier and happier with their bodies than white women, poll finds

Oh, and also

Blacks' high diabetes risk driven by obesity, not mystery

"African American women bear a disproportionate burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer."

"Diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, physical inactivity, obesity and a family history of heart disease are all greatly prevalent among African-Americans and are major risk factors for heart disease and stroke. What’s more, African-American women have almost two times the risk of stroke than Caucasians,"


So yeah, maybe self-esteem isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Obviously they feel free enough to roam to Popeye's Chicken and the corner store to buy purple drink.

Lucid-Ideas said...

Years and years ago before OKC (OKCupid) was purchased by Match.com they would run fairly detailed and statistics based on the user base and algorithm that would routinely punch holes in common myths surrounding relationships, sex, and romance. These would cause quite a bit of controversy because much of this info was pretty data heavy and facts ultimately don't care about your feelings. Once match.com purchased them this A) stopped and B) the old info was carefully curated and some of it deliberately memory-holed.

One thing I remember was romantic desirability by race. Now the link I found below you should take with a grain of salt because there are fakes out there and once they got bought they stopped collecting this data (roundabouts 2014).

https://www.reddit.com/r/OkCupid/comments/7p9mwu/okcupid_reply_rate_by_race_and_gender/

Ultimately what the data showed was that black women occupied the very bottom of the sexual marketplace hierarchy, that they sent more messages to any and all races (men and women) than other demos, and they replied most often to any message from any sender. I.E. Desperation. Facts don't care about your feelings, and I do feel bad for black women compared to their spoiled-for-choice competition. But I have a theory this is where a lot of the 'angry black woman' stuff is coming from. It appears to me it's either an undersexed demo or a demo that's not have the sex they'd like to be having with the right kind of people.

Shouting Thomas said...

Black people don't go anywhere because we don't feel free to roam, simple as that. I'll leave the why of that to your always illuminating imaginations.

Black people are free to go anywhere, and they do. I've lived all over the country. Blacks can safely travel anywhere without fear. You're lying, Crack.

Blacks, however, are ferociously racist and threaten anybody who dares to enter "their" neighborhoods. See the current attacks on the Hasidim in Williamsburg and Crown Heights in Brooklyn. The inter-racial violence and intimidation is entirely one sided, and entirely committed by blacks. DOJ crime statistics prove this.

Black gangs terrorizing whites and Asians render some districts of every city in the U.S. off limits to Hasidim, whites and Asians.

Check out this article then do a search in the Inquirer for obesity.
Certainly, in the past, the paper thought obesity was a problem.
Interesting that science denial is ok when science doesn't support what you want to believe.

AZ Bob said...

Lizzo is not grotesquely obese. She is well-fed.

Yancey Ward said...

Lizzo twerking isn't an image I want in my head.

Matt said...

"he started collecting really 'black' blacks to make his act look more authentic, with Lizzo being one of the last before he died."

Apparently Lizzo worked with Prince on Plectrumelectrum. Plectrumelectrum is a (funk-tinged) rock album. Prince's back-up band/touring band was 3rdEyeGirl, three very white women. I guess Prince's quest for authenticity was really more a part-time thing.

John henry said...

Thanks crack,

Rap is not generally my cup of tea but I rather liked that.

Question:were you married to yoko ono? Sounds like her in the background. I don't think even Donald trump could fix that if she were my ex wife.

I learned long ago from a TV piece that blacks are more accepting of fat women because their communities had been so destroyed by drugs. The fashionably thin was more likely to be an addict. Is\was that true, I wonder?

"Black people are free to go anywhere, and they do. I've lived all over the country. Blacks can safely travel anywhere without fear. You're lying, Crack."

ST, your knowledge of blacks is as shallow as most of your comments, so give it a rest. I got friends who won't go on road trips, because they don't trust white people in isolated areas, but I'm lying. I got friends who ain't got enough money to go to the corner store, much less travel, but you know so much about our lives I should've referred to you before speaking. I got friends who don't leave the house - because they're supposed to be in Africa - but you know everything about our mindset here.

You're the expert. The white guy playing organ in a church.

My Bad.

Kevin said...

Lizzo is a headliner this year at Bonnaroo. That is pretty inexplicable to me. I saw her open for Sleater-Kinney just a few years ago. She has definitely not paid her dues enough to headline the largest festival in North America.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matt said...

"I guess Prince's quest for authenticity was really more a part-time thing."

He was working the angles under lots of different guises, like The Time (pimps and gangbangers music) and Vanity 6 (photo-feminist New Wave) with "Prince" being just one more batch of product to market a certain way.

Not really. It's more like, after centuries of being starved by whites, heavy (naturally) looks "healthy".

I've said it before: whites can appear to like Auschwitz or something, worshipping the "Carrie Bradshaw" look, reflecting a long-standing "Sex In The City" lifestyle of leisure at other's expense. They just look frail.

Blacks do generally steer clear of drug addicts, though. That much is true.

Prince died. She's getting the Hillary Clinton treatment.

I got friends who have parked their car on a street in Joliet for a concert and came back to his windows smashed, door dented, and - best part - the crook himself, who decided that a mugging was also in order. I got friends who don't have enough money to go to the corner store despite being white as the driven snow. I got friends who don't leave the house ('cept'n for work and such) cuz they're lazy, though I won't go so far as to call them a Cousin Pookie. I've also got a former lover who stopped to help a woman, apparently in distress, only to have her pull a knife and her baby daddy arrive from nowhere with a Saturday night special and demands. That former lover now carries concealed.

But the stats are a lie, right?

The Crack Emcee said...

J. Farmer said...

"How many baby mamas do they have?"

One - and it was the girl I liked when I first got here, too. She was knocked-up faster than I could smile at her. I knew she was the one when I saw her, pregnant, buying weed from a car full of gangstas, who tried to rip her off and drive away, except she hopped on the front hood and was breaking off their wiper blades, screaming bloody murder all the way. She got her weed and her money back.

The kid is cross-eyed.

I shit you not - 100% true.

Haiti has been a black republic for over 200 years. I wonder when they'll get around to not being the most impoverished, backwards country in the western hemisphere. According to the UN human development index, Haiti is ranked 169 out of 189. Every country below it, with the exception of Afghanistan and Yemen, is in sub-Saharan Africa.

Shouting Thomas said...

How old are you, Crack?

I’m 70. In the past year, I went to work for a new congregation (half black) and learned 130 new hymns. I also learned to play pipe organ, which is an entirely different instrument than the electronic organs and pianos I was accustomed to playing.

Two years ago, I learned how to accompany a classical choir, and I work for a couple of them.

I guarantee you, I’ve made 100 times more money than you as a musician, composer, arranger and performer.

Why don’t you stop the bitching and blaming other people and learn a useful, paying job skill? There’s still time.

Alternatively, you can continue to disgrace yourself by begging white people for stuff.

"Haiti has been a black republic for over 200 years. I wonder when they'll get around to not being the most impoverished, backwards country in the western hemisphere."

Freedom's always a scary word when applied to blacks.

See, since it was because of Haiti freeing itself that we were able to make the Louisiana Purchase, I can't understand why we let the French charge Haiti reparations for the loss of their slaves - the Haitians.

Except for the fear, felt here, that the Haitian uprising might cause an American one, so it was best to let the theft go through, keep the island poor, and make it an example to everyone of what happens when blacks start getting "big ideas" like strolling the planet like men.

Ask Shouting Thomas. He knows all about it.

First of all, "the island" isn't poor. The Dominican Republic and Haiti share the same island. While Haiti has been a basket case since the beginning, the Dominican Republic is one of the strongest economies in the Caribbean.

How has the U.S. kept Haiti poor, and why has the Dominican Republic been so successful? Haven't we tried to keep them poor too?

Yeah, and the 30-year rule of the Duvalier family.

Another question: why has it been so easy for non-blacks to victimize and oppress blacks for their entire existence?

Spiros said...

I thought calling people fat (and implying that they are less productive as a result) was racist? See, for example, "Fearing the Black Body: The Racial Origins of Fat Phobia," Sabrina Strings (NYU Press, 2019).

Gahrie said...

I think the current theory is geography.

hawkeyedjb said...

"I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship.”

Yeah, pretty safe haven there. You'll either be joining or running away from Boko Haram.

Spiros said...

In a Q and A, Sabrina Strings was asked "how society arrived at the contemporary ideal of slenderness." She responded:

[F]at phobia is not based on health concerns. What I found in my research is that in the West, it’s actually rooted in the trans-Atlantic slave trade and Protestantism. In the trans-Atlantic slave trade, colonists and race scientists suggested that black people were sensuous and thus prone to sexual and oral excesses. Protestantism encouraged temperance in all pleasures, including those of the palate. By the early 19th century, particularly in the US, fatness was deemed evidence of immorality and racial inferiority.

J. Farmer said...

@Gahrie:

How has the U.S. kept Haiti poor, and why has the Dominican Republic been so successful? Haven't we tried to keep them poor too?

Well I don't agree with the argument that American neocolonialism is the cause of Haiti's problems, you are misunderstanding Crack's point to a degree. He is referring toe Haiti indemnity crisis and the agreement to make gold payments to France for the loss of slaves. For a more thorough discussion of this issue, I'd recommend Who Is to Blame for Haiti’s Problems?

J. Farmer said...

I think the current theory is geography.

I think that, coupled with natural selection, is a pretty plausible theory. It is ironic that Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel was written ostensibly to refute biological arguments for differential levels of development among earth's populations.

"Yeah, and the 30-year rule of the Duvalier family."

I like how slavery went on for hundreds of years, producing all kinds of unforeseen phenomena for black to contend with, but you guys look at a 30 year window and think "Should've been fixed by then", like the pathologies ain't piled on top of each other, in part because whites have always refused to take part in any reparations, leaving blacks - the least equipped to do so - to carry the cultural load, for however long there is a load to carry.

It's really amazing.

Shouting Thomas said...

What a boring, embarrassing act.

J. Farmer said...

@The Crack Emcee:

Because she knows what sells to a daytime TV audience. The audience is mostly affluent white women who are housewives or unemployed blacks. That's why you're options for daytime TV are Ellen or a bunch of black judge shows. Oprah's genius was that she was able to appeal to both of these groups. Folks like Ricki Lake or Maury Povich never quite figured out the formula. That's why Maury's show turned into, "By a confidence of 99.99%, you are.....NOT the father!"

Gahrie said...

Slavery went on for thousands of years, and still exists today. It produced trauma and horror for every race on the face of the Earth. Most of us got over it.

J. Farmer said...

@The Crack Emcee:

It's really amazing.

I'd be more sympathetic to this argument if blacks were uniformly oppressed. But they are not. Many blacks live middle-class and upper-class lifestyles. So what separates these blacks from the ones that remain mired in the permanent underclass? The three things people have to do to avoid poverty are: (1) finish high school (2) get and keep any job (3) not have children out of wedlock. In 1960, a quarter of black babies were born out of wedlock. Today it is almost three-quarters. How does slavery/Jim Crow explain this phenomenon, unless your argument is that the effects of slavery/Jim Crow are more salient now than they were in 1960.

bagoh20 said...

At this point is there anything less edgie than wokeness. The whole thing is based on imagined victim-hood. It's complete conformity with powerful taboos, ostracism, and all the rest. It has taken over the roles once held by religion, patriotism, or the communist party line. A divisive heavy burden on us all and our relationship with each other, a freedom and creativity smothering blanket that restricts all openness between us to banalities.

This tribal totalitarian thing must be in our basic makeup, becuase although it constantly changes form, it's always there, like racism, jealousy, and class, and always needing to be fought off like a virus that infects cultures.

John henry said...

Historically have whites victimized blacks more than blacks have victimized other blacks?

Something like 6-8mm blacks dead in the Congo in the past 20 years.

500m to 1mm murdered in a few months in Rwanda. Blacks by blacks.

And in the us, how many blacks have been killed by whites in any period one might care to pick over the past 150 years or so?

And how many blacks killed by whites in the same period?

100mm blacks sold into slavery in 900-1900 almost all by other blacks. The lucky ones, a million or so, got shipped to what is now the us. Lucky only by comparison. I do not intend in any way to minimize the horror of slavery even in the US.

Ethnically there is not a lot of difference between Haitians and Dominicans.

Put 100 of each together and nobody could tell them apart except for language.

Someone mentioned 30 years of Duvalier. Horrible horrible person.

But a day at the beach compared to rafael Trujillo who ruled the Dr for 30 years. Succeeded by his former puppet for 20 years, Balaguer who was almost as bad.

One country eventually reformed, at least somewhat. The other has gotten worse, by all measures.

That is not exactly true. Haitians are largely sub-Saharan African in ancestry with very little admixture from other populations. Dominicans, on the other hand, are largely a European people but with significant sub-Saharan African (about 30%) and indigenous American (about 10%) admixtures.

p.s. That is why in terms of human development, Haiti is much closer to countries like Djibouti, Malawi, and Ethiopia, while Dominican Republic is much closer to countries like Peru or Ecuador.

I spent most of my adulthood in Chicago where there were cultural aspects of inner-city Black culture that were problematic.

I like living in Portland, the whitest metro in America, where the most problematic thing is that there's not enough Blacks that everyone can have a Black friend. Of course, we have a higher proportion of white criminals. Which is also good for Black people in Portland because white dudes do a lot less crime in the hood than Black dudes do in white neighborhoods.

Is it most PC to capitalize Black and not white?

I would totally bang Jillian Michaels...around the clock. And man am
I old. I wouldn’t be anywhere near that grotesque fat thing. So that’s my contribution.

Michaels would kick your ass, gramps. She bats for the other team.

"Historically have whites victimized blacks more than blacks have victimized other blacks?"

In America, how can anyone ask this question?

It reflects an ignorance so profound and blinkered as to be appalling.

Here's a sad fact that no one wants to admit. In this world, no one wants Africans among them. What has God wrought among this population? Nowhere on this earth are Africans accepted. It is not for anyone else to mitigate. It is. You can have your Oprahs, and your Jayzees. The French welcome African-Americans, the rich ones, anyway, Marvin Gaye. Americans give them a chance, but no one wants them. Imagine a life on this world that Satan rules, that YOU are immediately rejected. Black. black. Good BBQ. Jazz. Sweet people. It's a puzzle. It's not racism. There's something happening here, What it is, ain't exactly clear.
