Knowing that white people flee the Black Undertow (and the discernible Climate Change that comes with it), the lack of propinquity to real-life Black people allows Hollywood and television to fill that costly void with Black Fictional Images.
All non-Black people know perfectly well what they are avoiding when they choose to live in Whitopias or in homogeneous neighborhoods, but movies and entertainment (primarily through sitcoms) refuse to showcase stereotypical Black behavior and social customs for the masses to see. Instead, sitcoms like The Cosby Show and Family Matters present a Black middle-class, nuclear family, though real-life provides roughly 25 – 28 percent married Black couples raising children.
A scripted sitcom with only Black leads is no longer a viable commercial property for NBC, CBS, ABC, or Fox. Sure, Black Entertainment Television (BET) can target its built-in audience with Black sitcoms, but most of these shows are outcasts properties that failed on other networks.
Because audiences have rejected Black people in popular culture (save a few actors in movies, like Will Smith and Morgan Freeman), producers of television shows have resorted to turning networks into all-white channels – like F/X with Wilfred, The League, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Justified, and Rescue Me – or Stuff White People Like (SWLP) sitcoms like The Office, Parks and Recreation and 30Rock on NBC, and Two and a Half Men and Mike and Molly on CBS (the latter are more Untouchable White shows).
Period pieces are becoming popular, like ABC’s Pan Am. Set in the 1960s, a virtually all-white cast is being watched by a virtually all-white audience.
The rest of television consists of largely niche networks like History, AMC, Discovery, Bravo, etc., that have few – if any – shows that have prominent roles for Black actors or reality shows based around a Black person.
About the only time you’ll see authentic Black people on television is when you watch your local nightly news broadcast (a endless display of wanton Black criminality, fires at predominately Black apartments, or Black people being hilariously interviewed in a real-life Black environment). Or when you watch sports and see Black people celebrating after every play – regardless of its importance – and, generally, acting stereotypically Black.
There does exist a portal into the true soul of Black folks, a trip into the heart of darkness that showcases everyday hi-jinks and behavior of Black people that every white family instinctively moves away from in a maddening quest for “good schools” (all-white school districts with minor Asian influence) and a low crime county.
Not even Rod Serling himself could offer the correct amount of foreboding commentary on what comical depravity awaits the eyes (and senses) at WorldStarHipHop.com, where the reader can take a hard shot of authentic Blackness that instantly washes away the residue left from watching Cliff Huxtable or Carl Winslow on scripted television shows.
WorldStarHipHop.com is a video aggregate, much as Drudgereport.com is a news aggregate. The videos collected at WorldStar show a different face of Blackness then what is commonly seen on television or from Hollywood, with the Black Fictional Image replaced with Authentic Blackness.
Here is Wikipedia on the site:
WorldStarHipHop is an American hip-hop and content aggregating blog. Created in 2005, the site averages 1.1 million unique visitors a day. Alexa ranks the site 225th in site traffic in the United States. The site was founded by Lee ‘Q’ O’Denat, a Hollis, Queens-based hip-hop fan. Described by VIBE as a “remnant of the Geocities generation”, the site regularly features public fighting caught on tape, music videos and other content targeted to young Black-American audiences. In response to complaints that World Star gives a negative portrayal of the African American community, O’Denat calls the site the “CNN of the ghetto.” “We’re just the messenger,” O’Denat says. “Maybe that will help Blacks or minorities say, ‘Wow, I don’t want to be on World Star, I don’t want to be on blast.’
From an article exposing WorldStar creator at TheVibe.com, we learn about he supernatural forces that prompted Q to start a Web site showcasing Authentic Blackness for the world to see, how Black people film Blacks Behaving Badly and proudly state – while filming – that they hope to see it on WorldStar (thus reveling in the behavior since it affords them some celebrity), and are granted another shining example that Black people love being Black:
According to Q, his strategy pays off with “roughly” 2 million unique visitors a day. Alexa, a Web analytics company, ranks the site 225th in site traffic in the United States and the 900th in the world. By comparison, MTV.com notches 222nd and Travelocity.com at 232nd. Alexa says World Star’s visitors tend to be Black males under the age of 35 who are “moderately educated.” As a result of all this activity, Q says the site is valued “in the millions.”
The clips of public fighting have become so popular on World Star that “documentarians” with cell phone cameras sometimes name-drop the site while recording brawls. The site has popularized online personalities such as Kat Stacks, a notorious kiss-and-telling groupie; 50 Tyson, an autistic emcee who resembles the rapper and the boxer; and Cubana Lust, an adult model with an extra large booty. One recent video shows a homeless woman attacking a shrieking man in a New York City subway train. “9-to-5 people love to see misery,” Q says. “People want to say, ‘I thought I had it bad, but look at these people.’ That’s what sells.”
While offering a glimpse at the stretch-marked underbelly of hip-hop, World Star hasn’t only generated torrents of traffic, but also spurred accusations of cultural bottom-feeding and back dealing, which has landed Q in the crosshairs online and off. The incident involving 50 Cent and World Star dovetailed with Q’s emergence as a public figure. He has always been relatively easy to contact through his site, but he had nevertheless been a faceless dictator of a roiling empire.
WorldStarHipHop.com is one of the most popular sites on the Internet. Nixing the popular methodology (in Hollywood and network studio casting offices) and trend of creating Black Fictional Images for mass-entertainment consumption, WorldStar has amassed one of the biggest audiences on the World Wide Web by showcasing Authentic Blackness.
A winning formula for success that will eventually trickle-down into the pens of script writers and executives hoping to create the next big hit comedy. Oh wait: Daniel Tosh of Tosh.0 is already doing it.
To understand the behavior of Authentic Black people, refrain from watching scripted television shows and Hollywood feature films crafted by Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs) whose only interaction with Black people came from second-hand stories of college roommates who tried to unsuccessfully educate inner-city youth with Teach For America.
Type ‘WorldStarHipHop.com‘ into your browser and venture into the world that suburbia shields one from; that gentrification displaces; and that living in a Whitopia watching Denzel Washington or Morgan Freeman movies makes incredulous.
And never forget that Black people willingly upload videos to this site and film authentic Black moments with glee knowing that the WorldStar logo will soon appear on the bottom right-hand corner making them instantly into a star.
Well, until the next video showcasing authentic Blackness is uploaded that is.
The (real) soul of Black folks is available at WorldStar, a Web site that Black people find no shame in, because Black people find nothing objectionable about typical Black behavior. Judging by the character on display at WorldStar (WSHH), it’s not too hard to judge why cities like Birmingham, Atlanta, Newark, Baltimore, Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, etc., where abandoned to the Black Undertow.
WorldStarHipHop.com isn’t racist; how could something that Black people willingly upload videos to that showcase the lifestyles of the welfare-aided and EBT/SNAP card fueled Black Undertow be called racist?
Visit WSHH and see for yourself why everyone avoids Black Undertow cities, counties, and neighborhoods. Visit WSHH and see for yourself that Black people find nothing objectionable about Black Undertow behavior; in fact, they celebrate it.
