Madness & Reality Radio: Angry Black Women, Hoodrats, & 'Othering'

This past Wednesday night, I was invited to weigh-in on Madness & Reality Radio’s hot-button topic: ‘The Voyeuristic Fetish of Angry Black Women’in hopes of contributing to a nuanced conversation about the 'Angry Black Woman' trope; but alas, as most conversations about Black women do, the discourse veered a bit off course. Additionally, due to technical difficulties, I wasn't able to be patched through successfully, so I could offer my two-cents, as planned. I sat on the sidelines clenching my mug of hot apple cider, racked with a wicked case of the WTFs; caused by guest commentary from a popular pod-caster at the helm of a movement called, “Die Hoodrat Die”, who calls himself HaterArazzi. Most of the more incendiary comments came from male-callers (undoubtedly loyal fans of Generation X forumsTommy Sotomayor HaterAzzi's podcast)- who were able to get patched through and make some incendiary comments about “those” Black women who act ‘ratchet’.
