Ben Franklin Family For Rent ; Rappers Buy In

“$100K on my wrist, a Franklin on my back” Meek Mill captioned for this picture

“I was just home playing video games and Meek Mill called me up. I didn’t believe it was really him until he DMed me from his personal Twitter and I saw that he was putting spaces before his exclamation points. He said, “Let’s Hang You A Real One !,” and I said sure.

Eddie Burgess, the 11th cousin of American inventor Ben Franklin, has been an unlikely member of Hip-Hop culture over the past 3 months. His famous cousin is the face on the $100 bill, famously celebrated in Diddy’s 1997 “All About The Benjamins’ classic. Rappers have always flaunted stacks of $100 bills, but now they’re taking the excess one step further: flaunting actual members of the Franklin family on social media.

Confession

I am labeling this as a confession, but this is also a PSA to everyone (I can’t even write “to all of the Black men” because there are BW with this dumb belief, as well)….

9.5 times out of 10… When a Black woman… Or, a Black girl… Tells you about being denigrated or subjected to misogynoir, by Black men…

They are not referring to slandering tweets, IG memes or Facebook posts. They are drawing from ACTUAL EVENTS FROM ACTUAL EXPERIENCE THAT HAPPENED TO THEM!!!

So, bringing up “Y'all need to stop listening to them niggas on Twitter… Yadda-Yadda-Yadda… Deflect-Deflect-Deflect…” Just let Black women know that…

1) Y'all don’t give a shit about a certain demographic of BW, even though y'all supposedly ‘here for the sistas’. 2) Y'all are holding onto misogynistic tendencies because… Look at who y'all are so quick to defend after hearing a tale of victimization: the male oppressor. 3) Y'all didn’t listen and understand at all.

And ever since we’re on the subject of social media…
For every misogynistic tweet, there are people who uphold the messages in those tweets. So, if you feel like ‘it’s just a tweet’… Consider social media as a ‘confessional’: this is where folks come to unleash their unbridled prejudices and bigotry without repercussions. So for every re-tweet, think of those people as supporters/upholders of misogynoir.

Also, consider this: those same people… Could be your employer… Your daughters’/sisters’/nieces’/cousins’ teachers or principals/professors… Your daughters’ pediatricians…. Your doctors… That real estate agent who you have an appointment with… That bank investor who you’re about to apply for a loan…

And for those hoteps/ashy ankhs/Pro-Black people that are “not getting it”… Would you still find those memes and posts funny, if you found out that they were created by a non-black person (in particular, a white person)? If not, then why-the fuck-is it funny now?

And to all of those women and girls, who will read this and go, “But still… They shouldn’t be offended… I was raised by positive Black men and I know the difference… They should just get over it…”…

As someone who was blessed with positive, male role models and once held the same belief, I am here to tell you…

SIT YOUR PRIVILEGE-ABLEIST ASSES DOWN AND HUSH!!!

How-fucking-dare you tell someone (that has experienced trauma and living with undiagnosed/diagnosed PTSD symptoms) to get over it?!
So-the fuck-what you had a very good childhood with positive men/boys in your life. Good for you! And I don’t begrudge you for this. But I will curse-you-the fuck out, if your response to another woman’s testimony about her fear/reservation of Black men (because of mentioned long-standing abuse) is a high-key/low-key “get over it”.

And, Bitch, I hope you stub your bare big-assed toe on a sturdy coffee table.
Ol’ Ableist ass…
