It's my top ten Foolishments of 2011 (yes, I made up that word).  The stupidest, turrible-ness of last year.  Read and speak on it.

Also...new website of the week, a new jam, and a pretty girl in a bikini.

4. Black Women On Reality Shows
Yes, the white women are also bananas, but we excel in this area. The women are at best mean to each other, but often violent; they are also shallow, materialistic, dumb and in desperate financial straits even AFTER being on TV. They can’t even parlay their “fame” Kardashian style.

But some women think that the image of video vixens in bikinis lounging in hot tubs in hip hop videos are far worse for our collective psyche. They shrug off the reality show stuff as silly entertainment….maybe because one is aimed at women, and the other is aimed at men.

The whole thing is a false choice because music videos, for the most part, are the thing of the past. Only a small fraction of the programming day of MTV, BET and VH1 is devoted to music videos anymore, so cash-strapped record companies don’t make as many. And several of women who appeared in those videos now star in these reality shows. And the ratings success of loud black women slapping each other means they’ll be around for a while.
