I can’t believe I never posted on this before! I’m so bad. So very bad.
Anyway, a few weeks ago I got a chance to chat with Kate Perkins over The Classical about the Notorious K.A.T.E, the Victoria Secret model who allegedly dated New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez which caused her star to rise among the sports blogosphere. Over the past year she has been all the rage among a certain set. Well, let’s be honest, white dudes. Cause who else controls the sports digital media?
So…Kate and I chatted about what it all means. Why is Kate a meme?
Some people took offense to the post either claiming I was racist or we were hating etc etc.
JD: Oh, yeah…my tweet about the white-bro meme. Basically, it goes back to the “blank slate” thing. The undercurrent in sports talk regarding women is “ZOMG I’d love to have a hot chick I can take around the guys who’s down for anything,” and under that undercurrent is not presenting a challenge. So when white dude says “dance for me Kate” and she’s obviously wearing the tiniest bikini ever and can’t dance a lick she’s like “Okay!” and not “Well … can I put some pants on first?”
I called this a White Male thing because white dudes run the sports blogosphere so they decide who’s hot and who’s not. As soon as I tweeted my comment, some white dudes immediately replied me assuming I was “hating” on Kate cause she’s hot. I mean, there are lots of hot girls. I was just saying her rise has its reasons just like anyone else. Plus there’s this crazy obsession with boobs and blond hair that black guys don’t obsess about so much. They’re more into length of hair and big bottoms. So … Kate might not be quite as appealing to them.
To clarify, yes I am a racist. Cause apparently any time you bring up race that automatically qualifies you as a racist. So let’s just assume I’m racist and move on from that.
