    They are stone age people trying to exist in modern society. That must be exhausting. No wonder they are tired!

    They’re tired because they run they’re mouths nonstopped, and that’s also why everyone else is tired OF them.

    I guess causing non-stop drama and dysfunction, as well as having to constantly try to force other people to do things for you that you are incapable of doing yourself/too lazy and entitled to do yourself truly is exhausting.

      Indeed.

      I wish it would make them so tired, their hearts just stop. 😉

    There is a bit of irony in all this, to inject some interpretation from an actual black woman.

    In large part due to the realities of black life and culture (fatherless homes and all the attendant pathologies it births), there is something of an epidemic of stress, mental illness, and other such things among black women. A lot of them are tired, because of the hand their parents dealt them or the stony bed they made for themselves. It’s these things that created the “strong black woman” trope. They’re taking care of themselves, their kids, often some man, and the ones that manage to acquire some education and a decent job often find themselves utilized as the family crutch.

    All of that is real, and NONE OF IT can be blamed on white supremacy. But here’s the irony.

    Naomi Osaka and Simone Biles are not among that demographic. At all. They were both not only raised in two parent, functional homes, but had parents who were able to finance their training in more elite athletic sports from a young age and throughout their lives. These two are not the “tired black women” that mental health professionals refer to when they lament the stereotypical “strong black woman” who is in rea;ity just a woman like any other.

    No. These two are entitled sports starlets used to be coddled and praised so when they are having a shaky run (all athletes, even the best have the occasional bad run), they quit.

      Lots of typos, Will. Apologies. I hope it’s still understandable.

        I only counted one typo; I must be slipping. 😉

      Agree completely, Elspeth!

      And I don’t think the Twitter twats who prattle on about being ‘so tired, y’all’, are from less-well-off backgrounds, either; most of them are race grifters and hustlers, journavists, and the like.

      The things they talk about being ‘so tired, y’all’ about are rayciss / white supremaciss, blah blah blah, nothing to do with being hard-knock-life single moms, etc.

      These are mostly blue-checks, professionals. As much as these sports starlets.

      That’s why they cheer so loud for these sports failures, because they’re middle-upper-class losers themselves.

        For the record, in case it comes up. I do know that Simone Biles biological parents were addicted and troubled and not married and all of that.

        But they didn’t raise her. Her grandparents did for most of her life, and they officially adopted her when she was 6. So while she wasn’t born into the level of privilege of Naomi Osaka, she was raised well and acquired wealth and fame at a very early age because her parents were able to provide those opportunities for her.

    Hey what’s wrong with the word “y’all?” That’s proper English.

      July 29, 2021 at 4:31 pm

      Nothing. It’s just when it’s part of this phrase, I find that irritating. I find their fainting-couch routine so tiresome, y’all.😉

      Y’all is technically correct I’m not sure I’d consider it “proper English”. At least not how Americans use it. It evolved into a uniquely Southern U.S. phrase.

      As a proud southerner, I readily admit that I am not a fan of hearing northerners who have never even eaten a proper biscuit or heard of White Lily flour spouting off about “y’all this” or “y’all that”, LOL!

        Hear, hear! 🙂

        I think of it as a Southern U.S. and Caribbean term (modified: “all y’all”), primarily, and I cringe to hear racial minority Canadians who aren’t even black, like East Indians and Asians, use it as if it’s a “BIPOC” thing to speak that way; as if Canadians of dark hue, even ones not black nor southern U.S. in origin, all sound alike. Talk about ‘cultural appropriation’, lol! 🙂

        Northern U.S. / western U.S. / Canadian folk have a perfectly good alternative to “y’all”, which I favour because it’s a term used by my Ulster Scots ancestors as well as my Appalachian co-ethnic ‘cousins’: “You’se”! 🙂

        Now, I realize “you’se” is also not considered by everyone out there to be “proper English”, but I really don’t think it’s any worse than “y’all”, and it’s a phrase invented by my folk, darnit, so I’ll say “You’se guys” sometimes even if it grates on some folks’ ears, lol.

        While it is arcane, “you” is proper for the second person plural. “Thou” is proper as the second person singular. Language changes over time. In a thousand years, we won’t be able to communicate in the new tongue.

        No one in Southern Appalachia says ‘youse’. We say either “you all” or you uns”.

        Ah. My bad; I thought I had read / heard it is still used in some parts of Appalachia.

        It is still used by the Scotch-Irish in Ontario, Canada, and back in Northern Ireland…

    I have to admit I have often had the thought that (American) black women taught (by example) the over-the-top-self-esteem-thing to American women of other races.

    I remember seeing it with black women first. The “I’m all that and a bag of chips”, head-shaking side-to-side thing. The “I’m fat and beautiful” thing – remember seeing that with black women first.

    Although come to think of it, I do remember white women referring to themselves as “goddesses” in the 1990s.

      Alas, while it may have started with black American women, that whole ‘I’m a Queen / Daughter of the King!” mentality has spread to all English-speaking women…

    I am glad that Elspeth confirmed my suspicion of the “stony” bed that black women have made for themselves. It’s not just feminism, but it has been a disaster.

      Yes, fuzzie, as with most people in postmodernity, a large part of the ways we suffer are a result of our own choices.

      However, I am not -at all- letting feminism, along with leftist policies, off the hook. I cannot, because it’s only true that as a lot of these anti-poverty, supposedly pro-woman policies were instituted, black people were automatically more vulnerable as a result of their social status at the time.

      Where I break with the party line is that, no matter how harsh life is, there is an element of sound decision making and choices that is overlooked in favor of embracing the victimhood narrative. It costs something to make good decisions, but it costs nothing to be a victim, so that even those people who have enjoyed every advantage have resorted to clinging to victimhood.

    Major growth area for my white woman resentment is that I too messed up in my youth, overcame, and overcame, and overcame some more. My reward has been working as a clerical peon for lefties, being sneered at by righties, supporting multiple less fortunate family members, working, working, WORKING some more, and then hand holding someone who’s having another breakdown. But I fear that if I reveal that I too am exhausted, I’ll get to hear once again about what an evil evil EVIL RACIST I am.
