When referring to light-skinned, curly-haired, mixed women, there is no word thrown around more than the word “exotic.” I absolutely cannot stand the word “exotic” and it has absolutely nothing to do with me being a brown skin sista myself. 

Let’s start with the obvious thing that disturbs me about the word exotic and how it’s used, MEN! Men misuse this word more than anyone I have ever encountered. Men use the word exotic to describe women who are mixed and have “good” hair. Usually, women who are or seem to have some type of Spanish in their blood and are, in a sense, racially ambiguous. These are the women that men claim “have hair like the weave that regular black women have to buy” and are way prettier than regular black women, especially without makeup. Now, I don’t want to be Miss Debbie Downer, but to all the men who think this ignorant “fact” is true, allow me to bust that foolish bubble of yours. First and foremost, these exotic ladies with this exotic hair you love so much are wearing the same Indian Remi as I am…and yes, they bought it at the same store I did too! In fact, she’s not an ounce of Latino; she’s just light skin with a fresh perm who lived in a Spanish neighborhood. What is it that our black men think is so spectacular about a girl whose race they can’t pinpoint that a “regular ol” black girl isn’t worth it anymore. Oh yeah, it’s the word EXOTIC

First and foremost, let’s understand what exotic really means. Exotic is used to describe things that come from places other than the country you’re in. Cars, flowers, and foods are exotic. Your homegirl mixed with Mexican and Black is NOT! There is not a country called “Mexican & Black,” and you can find a Mexican and Black, Black and White or Asian and Black girl around any corner of any hood. Guess what, they’re not exotic or even rare. The brown skin girl from a country you can’t pronounce in Africa, however, would be considered exotic

This blog is not to put down any race or mix of races but rather to spotlight the blatant misuse of a word. People use the word “exotic” in a way to mean that anything not “exotic” is bland and “regular.” The problem with that thought is what or who we’re calling exotic. The women who are truly exotic (Iman, Naomi Campbell, etc) are not considered exotic, why is that? I suggest we stop using the word exotic to describe human beings. We should use exotic to describe foreign objects, not people. Women aren’t a fancy car, we’re what makes the world go round.

Woman Turns Capitol Rioter Ex-Boyfriend Into The FBI After He Called Her A “Moron”

A woman turned her ex-boyfriend into the FBI for storming the Capitol after he called her a “moron” via text message.

Richard Michetti may have gotten away with his role in the violent Capitol riot had he been a little nicer to his ex-girlfriend. Now, the Pennsylvania man is one of over 200 citizens facing charges for the January 6th riot.

In the arrest warrant, Michetti was arguing with his ex-girlfriend soon after the failed siege. The argument stemmed from him sending photos and videos from the riot to his ex, who remains unnamed. In the messages, Michetti insisted that the 2020 election had been rigged in favor of Joe Biden.

“If you can’t see the election was stolen you’re a moron,” Michetti wrote in the message.

The next day, the woman contacted federal authorities.

Also included in the arrest warrant are photos depicting the Trump supporter both inside and outside the Capitol on January 6th, as well as a hotel receipt confirming he was in Washington, D.C. on that day.

“We stormed the building, they held us back with spray and teargas and paintballs,” he confessed in one text.

Michetti was arraigned in court on Tuesday. His charges include knowingly entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and obstruction of Congress.

Chilling video captures the moment Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot (Video)

Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment when a dog walker for pop singer Lady Gaga was shot and two of her French bulldogs stolen.

The dog walker, identified by WENN.com Ryan Fischer, 30, was caring for the singer’s beloved dogs while she is away in Rome, Italy.

The video, obtained by TMZ, shows a man walking three dogs on a sidewalk late Wednesday night.

Then a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima or Sentra, pulled up alongside him and two men exited the backseat.

One suspect is heard yelling “You know what this is!” and “Give it up!” as Fischer screamed for help.

One of the dogs escaped while Fischer fought with the suspects who grabbed the other two dogs. One of the thugs shot Fischer in the chest before the suspects sped away with the two dogs.

Fischer fell to the ground, screaming “Help me! I’ve been shot!”

Police confirmed the dog walker was shot once in the chest — not four times as was previously reported.

BACKGRID

Lady Gaga’s team confirmed to PEOPLE that Gaga “wanted” the surveillance video “to be seen to catch the shooter and recover her dogs.”

She offered $500,000 for the safe return of her pets.

Gaga is in Italy prepping to film her new movie “Gucci.” A source told “Entertainment Tonight” that she is “beside herself” and “is horrified that this happened.”

“Her dogs are her babies and she is completely devastated and sickened by this,” the source said, adding that the singer feels “helpless” because she is far away.

CAUTION: This video contains graphic violence and may be disturbing to some viewers.
