A Complete Guide to 'Hipster Racism'

By Lindy West reinterpreted by Lesberatti
 
What is hipster racism?

Hipster racism involves making derogatory comments with a racial basis in an attempt to seem witty and above it all. Specifically, the idea is to sound ironic, as in “I’m allowed to say this because of course I’m not racist, so it’s funny.” It’s an aspect of a larger part of the hipster culture, which wants to seem jaded and urbane and oh-so-witty. 

http://s3.amazonaws.com/rapgenius/hipster-chick-300x229.jpgThere's been talk these last couple of weeks about "hipster racism" or "ironic racism"—or, as I like to call it, racism

Introducing your black friend as "my black friend"—as a joke!!!—to show everybody how totally not preoccupied you are with your black friend's blackness. 

It's the gentler, more clueless, and more insidious cousin of a hick in a hood; the domain of educated, middle-class white people (unlike me—to be clear, I am NOT one of those: “whites” at least not fully [biracial]) who believe that not wanting to be racist makes it okay for them to be totally racist. "But I went to college — I can't be racist!" Turns out, you can. 

My LAST Trash About The Celebrity Apprentice: Dayana You’re Fired!

Lisa Lampanelli clashed with Dayana Mendoza for the millionth time April 29 on The Celebrity http://l.yimg.com/bt/api/res/1.2/p0v8j5uAwzZzJfQrY1k8fw--/YXBwaWQ9eW5ld3M7cT04NTt3PTYwMA--/http://media.zenfs.com/en_US/News/HollywoodLife.com/042912_lisa_lampanelli_exclusive_featured120429112548.jpgApprentice, but this time, the “C*nt of Mean” wasn’t alone! When project manager Dayana attempted to critique Clay Aiken‘s singing and change Lisa’s lyrics — she called Dayana’s writing style “pure idiocy” — her teammates revolted. There was yelling, there was crying, and expectedly, there was one ugly boardroom.

Dayana had every right to critique Aiken’s singing and if she wanted to change the Lyrics, So WHAT?!  She was the PROJECT Manager! Also there was NOTHING wrong with giving her a refresher course on music styles. In the REAL World you do what your boss tells you to do.

Necessary Evil

vlcsnap-00004






I was resigned to being “Chaikenized” for Lip Service Series 2. We are all too familiar with the Chaikenization process: Being fed crappy crappy drama with minimal to non existent character development that wasn’t already in existence from derivative works that were already in existence.

So yes, I was resigned to what I thought was going to be predictable dyke vlcsnap-00006 melodrama, with Frankie “Cattin’ “ around [pun intended].

Granted I thought that it was rather weak to have Cat be so wishy washy in series one. As a matter of fact, like most viewers I became annoyed that she was cheating on her girlfriend: “HOT Cop” Sam and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out the intensity of Frankie’s sexual prowess, that would make Cat throw such caution to the wind": “F--- the necklace” just “F---“ me.”

I thought: "Oh Well" such is lesbian television, then this:

Weekend Movie: W./E.

Abby Cornish as “Wally” Winthrop

http://joyhog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/abbie-cornish-w.e_.-madonna-new-images-header_-546x277.jpg


W.E. tells the story of two women – Wally Winthrop (Abby Cornish) and Wallis Simpson – separated by more than six decades. In 1998, lonely New Yorker Winthrop is obsessed with what she perceives as the ultimate love story: King Edward VIII's abdication of the British throne for the woman he loved, American divorcée Wallis Simpson. But Winthrop's research, including several visits to the Sotheby's auction of the Windsor Estate, reveals that the couple's life together was not as perfect as she thought. Weaving back and forth in time, the film intertwines Wally's journey of discovery in New York with the story of Wallis (Andrea Riseborough) and Edward (James D'Arcy), from the glamorous early days of their romance to the slow unraveling of their lives in the decades that followed.
 
W.E. begins without revealing credits. There is nothing to tell us that this is a movie written and directed by Madonna, yet she infuses every foot of the film reel with her uncanny eye for the minutiae of stylistic detail {It’s a highly aesthetic piece of cinema]. Blending historical accuracy with her own artistic interpretation of how Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII’s romance played out, Madonna successfully manages to tell one of the most controversial stories of the twentieth century.

With such pressure to diplomatically portray Wallis and Edward, W.E. is very much a reflection of how far the pop star has come since her first feature in 2008, entitled Filth and Wisdom.

Contrary to her detractors, I enjoyed this movie, it stays with you long after the final credits have finished rolling.

Well Hello There

Don’t Tell Me That She’s not gay, don’t tell the woman next to her either.

The BEST in the Business

I’m not the only woman who’s had celebrity crushes over the years, but none as enduring as these two.
She was  told that she had the “Best T!ts” in the modeling business and you see why:

image-51540830-1280x800
c12 Here’s the thing: The late Gia Carangi represented everything that the straight world considered desirable: Made up as an image of what every woman should aspire to and what every man desired. But Gia was lesbian and more importantly  at 5’7” and a soft butch, Gia was a veritable “Shorty,” in the modeling industry
Imagine how difficult it must have been for her in the late 1970s and early 1980s to have an identity that was so detached from the reality in which she lived. Gia identified as lesbian and she was sure of her identity.
Hopefully things have changed somewhat and the same fate won’t meet my second crush:

The reigning queen of today’s catwalk, Danish model Freja Beha Erichsen, who is image the epitome of androgyny and the model of every fashion label’s moment for 5 years running (practically a lifetime in fashion parlance).
image
Although I like Erichson, she will
never capture the voluptuousness that Carangi had. But as lesbians they are two of the vanguards of fashion.


My Latest TRASH about The Celebrity Apprentice: Everybody LIES

I'd love to fire Dayana. You know why?" Trump says to Clay. "She's been here six times. But I'm not so sure she should be here.”

FINALLY

I want to see Lip Service as much as you do. .It's Finally HERE! also Check the media sites like Daily Motion and You Tube. I’m sure it’s there without the sex [the BEST part].

Am I really up for a second season of Cat hookin’ up with Frankie [Behind Sam’s back?] Hell Yeah!

Frankie is a coke head and Cat is apparently an alcoholic now. They deserve each other.

A Murderer Speaks

George Zimmerman testifies at the Trayvon Martin Murder Trail. Zimmerman is the self appointed neighborhood security watchman who stalked and shot unarmed 17 year old Trayvon Martin [an African American] as Martin was walking in the gated community to the home of his father’s girlfriend.

 

Oh NO He Didn’t…..

I love Sweden..Well Actually I love Swedish Women..more specifically the Swedish woman I had the BEST Date Ever with. She spoke 5 languages and the content of my ethnicity didn't seem to matter to her.
So imagine my disappointment as all my assumptions are wrecked because of this:

 
Swedish culture minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth cuts the controversial cake.
 

Swedish culture minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth cuts the controversial cake.
(CNN) -- Sweden's culture minister was feeling the heat Wednesday after a weekend art exhibit in which she cut up a cake baked into the shape of a cartoonishly stereotyped African woman.
A group representing Swedes of African descent has called for Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth to resign over what it called a racist caricature. But Liljeroth defended her participation, saying the cake was designed to "challenge the traditional image of racism."

Science Proves Women Over 30 are Better than Everybody

image Well of course we are, and for reasons not listed below, like: The majority of us attended school outside of our home where we weren’t influenced by social media [Which probably didn't  exist anyway} so we didn’t grow up into being inarticulate bible thumping conservative dullards, that are being played as fools by their political party.
 
A survey involving 60,000 volunteers from 200 countries has found that overall, women tend to be more moral creatures than men, and that morality starts to tick upward once women hit 30. So, women in your thirties and older, feel free to take a break from feeling pressured to marry and reproduce and be perfect at your job and have a perfect 22 year old body and a face so youthful that it looks like it was grafted from baby ass skin and give yourselves a pat on the back. Women over 30 WIN! Battle of the sexes, over. 

GEAR

Linda Vojtova – Marie Claire US May 2012

I love “Gear,” also known as: Outerwear, fleece, coats, shirts, footwear, and equipment such as backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags. I like clothing and equipment lines are catered towards wilderness chic, climbers, mountaineers, skiers, snowboarders, hikers, and endurance athletes. I’m not what you would image consider a “Sporty Dyke,” I don’t marathon, or climb mountains.  

However you will catch my 5’10” frame in cargo shorts on any given day and I am partial to Khakis paired with a black polo.

I like Pockets, basically I need pockets. I need storage to prepare for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse.

Moar Zombie Apocalypse Fashion.

Hey Mary Jane Guzman…Where Are You?

Last year you harassed the hell out of me, posting to my YouTube channel,  insulting me, writing LOLOLOL like a lunatic. Accusing me of lusting after black women [Clark is multi-ethnic] with white facial features.

Well Mary Jane, it was NEVER about Jessica Clark. Silly girl if you weren’t in such a rush to harass me you would have discovered that it had ALWAYS been about Gia Carangi. All these years after Gia’s death it’s still about her [pre drug addiction] Beauty.

Hell if I am going to lust after a model with white facial features, then it’s going to be a white model.

My Latest Trash about: The Celebrity Apprentice

I am rapidly becoming annoyed, so annoyed with this pathetic excuse for image entertainment that I may stop posting about it altogether.  Life is too short to linger on such nonsense.

Even Dayana’s beauty won’t be enough to save her if I fire her from appearing on Lesberatti. See here’s the thing: NOW Dayana is saying that she isn’t going to let anyone throw her “Under The Bus,” now she is developing a backbone.

Meanwhile Lisa “Ultra-Bigot” Lampanelli fluctuates between her Crock-a-dile tears in one breath crying and saying that her job is to make people happy [If her audience is the Ku Klux Klan] and not to make girls [Dayana] cry.

MAN Into Woman

People on the internet leave a lot to be desired when it comes to perception. For example a picture of Lady Ga-Ga in her underpants, well some horny teenage boys interpret the outline of Ga-Ga’s vaginal area as meaning that she has a penis,  Really? Are teens so virginal that they don’t know what a crotch bulge looks like? 

I’m bringing this up because as you’ve notice: Over the past couple of weeks or so I have been having my own Gia Carangi Renaissance. Nothing wrong with that.  

Generally you couldn’t see the track marks that Gia had from abusing Heroin, you just couldn’t, because many addicts will find unique places to inject themselves, but in Gia’s case, she was using Heroin so frequently that it became noticeable:  Her face was was becoming sallow and drawn. Gia was losing a lot of weight and since there was no Adobe Photoshop in the early 80’s, that meant that there was no digital manipulation [Like Whitney Houston had to make her look fatter at the Michael Jackson Tribute]. The makeup artists TM01acould only do so much.
I won’t post the worst photos but you can see how thin Gia had become. To me that was the most revealing aspect of her addiction [That and the mood swings and the disappearances].

When Gia went to rehab her face would become full, when she was on drugs her face would become thin and drawn.
Whatever photos are online are aged. But remember this happened during my significant era and I saw the original shots. I saw only three other major campaign shots where you could clearly see that Gia was noticeably under the influence.

"Now I can feel my body, I can feel my head. Before, I was like numb. It's [Drug Addiction] really just selfish .... a selfish way to live." Gia Carangi

Remember that in the end Gia Carangi beat her addiction to Heroin---The only thing she could not beat was HIV.

Initially when I tried to give resources for individuals experiencing substance abuse challenges, I had found the Gia Carangi Foundation, but that organization no longer seems to be operating. However Eagleville Hospital [Where Gia received treatment to beat her Heroin addiction] is still operating.

Do You Know Who This Actress Is?

Do you people in the visitor’s list that is scrolling in the right column remember when I asked you to name the actress who played 11 year old Gia Carangi in the HBO movie Gia?
Well thanks for all your responses which amounted to the overwhelming number of 0.

Sheesh why do I have the one site on the web with visitors who appear to be cognitively impaired? Hmm maybe it’s because they are afraid of me? How funny. Maybe it’s because they are lazy? Most Probably, or maybe too stupid to do a search using Google?

Love/Hate Relationship

imageA Heartfelt Thanks to my readers for once again indulging my foray into Carangi-land. Although she was born 52 years ago and died 26 years ago, I have yet to see a model reach the pinnacle of fame as quickly as Gia. Her fame was even too fast for her to handle.


I will not host photos of Gia in her tragic decline. That is not the woman I want to remember.

image image

Gia shot to the zenith of fame faster than Iron Man leaves the earth, it was amazing. One day her image was EVERYWHERE, then (because of drugs) Gia was Gone.


Gia was such a beautiful child:

Gia_Carangi_C113 AmoJZLvCMAEZGRC


Even today in 2012 no matter how much the industry Hypes the new talent, no matter how many television shows are produced pitting models against one another, they can’t seem to find another Gia Carangi. Sure Freja Beha Erichson is a hip/Dyke model but she is not as beautiful as Gia was, Cindy Crawford was touted as “baby” Gia, but Gia was a lesbian through and through and so am I which is why Gia is my Marilyn Monroe.

My Latest Trash About The Celebrity Apprentice: FIRE ALL OF THEM NOW!

I mean COME On! I know that television is scripted, heck it’s even difficult to imagebelieve what I see on the news. But this show is sickening me with the nonsense it spews. 

Some claim that Lisa Lampanelli makes a living off of talking trash about others. But she also clearly enjoys it. How else to explain the vicious roaster going off on not one (Arsenio Hall), not two (Dayana Mendoza) but three (Lou Ferrigno) fellow contestants on tonight’s edition of The Celebrity Apprentice? I’ll tell you: Lisa Lampanelli is a Bigot [she doesn’t like brown people and an “Ableist” [She doesn’t like disabled people]. Lampanelli must be a TeaPubliKKKan!

After hearing Arsenio talk ill of her buddy Aubrey O’Day [The junior racist of the  two] and learning Dee Snider had been fired, Lampanelli unloaded on Hall, Lou and Dayana. And after her team lost the project of putting together a 60 second Entertainment.com ad, she really unloaded on Lou in the Boardroom — and this was before he had even uttered the words “110 percent.” 


Do You Know Who This Is?

In The Fan Made Music Video Boyfriend, that is posted below, she appears in the first two scenes as the young Gia Carangi.  Do you know this actor?

A Cautionary Tale

It’s great to indulge my inner child by partaking of the technological advances that were either in their infancy or not even fully developed during my adolescence, things like: Social Networking, Blogging, and even YouTube.

Yes I know that as a grown woman I am probably not expected to be interested in such things, but such is the allure for a media and popular culture junkie. For me the caveat lay in the fact that I have experienced first-hand some of the events that I see younger people romanticizing online.

Norma Jean Mortensen:image
I expect fans of Marilyn Monroe to elevate her to mythical levels, but in reality she was an emotionally troubled pill popping drug addict that was an actor and nothing more.

Didn’t You Know That…..

Of Course I couldn’t reference Gia Carangi in one video, without making another video with the REAL Gia Marie Carangi featured in it. No, I am not “Idolizing” a deceased drug addict. Yes that is exactly what Gia became, but so far Gia Carangi is still the ONLY role that Angelina Jolie has played where the real person that Jolie portrayed was actually prettier than Jolie. After all Gia was my inspiration.


This video is about her demise to the effects of the opiate Heroin, it is raw and unfocused like GIa's life became.



What a tragedy that Gia got caught up in the temptations of narcotics and it destroyed her.


World Premier: BOYFRIEND

GiaCarangi!aAhhh on Tuesday, I had such a lousy day, so to relax and since I hadn't created one in so long I decided to make a music-video short for Justin Beiber’s song “Boyfriend” and who better to have in it than Angelina Jolie as Gia Carangi and Elizabeth Mitchell as Sandy Litner from the HBO movie: GIA. Portraying Carangi is the only role Angelina Jolie has played to date, where the real life subject was prettier than Jolie. 

SMASH

Ep 09: Hell On Earth

I like Debra  Messing, I’ve enjoyed her acting ever since Will and Grace,  I was even hoping that The Starter Wife would become a series, so I am happy to see her in this show. You all know how much I love Megan Hilty’s talent and think that Ivy Lynn is just perfect as Marilyn.  Hey I am even warming up to Katherine McPhee.  However I draw the line at Uma Thurman. Oh Uma’s not in this episode, but I still draw the line.

Sofia Vergara: To Host 'Saturday Night Live' 4.7.2012

image Naturally Blond Sofia Vergara will head to New York City in early April to host "Saturday Night Live," and the gorgeous actress can't wait to step onto the legendary stage.
 
"I'm very happy, very excited because I never thought I was going to be part of that TV show," Sofia told Access Hollywood at PaleyFest 2012 on Wednesday in Los Angeles. "I think it's an American tradition. It's a TV show that the whole world knows, so for me, it's an honor to be part of that group of actors that are known for their excellence."

My Latest Celebrity Apprentice TRASH: I DON’T Care……

Got It? I don’t care what you say or think about the fact that I’m only watching The Celebrity Apprentice to see Dayana Mendoza..Okay, at first it was to see Dayana Mendoza and Patricia DayanaMedoza01 Velasquez, but now it’s only for Dayana Mendoza and why shouldn’t I? I’ve dated Venezuelan women and there’s no argument that they are beautiful [Although the women were not as beautiful as Dayana Mendoza, or else they would have been crowned Miss Universe and how arrogant is it for Earthlings to make up such a category and not allow the inhabitants of other planets to compete]. Hey, get this: It’s all about the pretty and since beauty lay in the eyes of the beholder, well this is what my eyes like to behold…What self respecting lesbian eyes wouldn’t?

See I am at an age where if I were to meet someone who looked like Mendoza and she spent time with me, well I’d have no qualms about admitting my attraction to her.
