“Women, make sure you’re respected…” —Jeru the Damaja, from “Me or the Papes”
“Ladies get your paper too/Don’t expect for no man to support you, keep it true…”–Dr. Dre, from “Been There, Done That”
Two quotes on women, and for them to respect and support themselves. Coming from men–and, yes, I’m aware of the irony of using such a quote from a rapper like Dre who has also used more negative terms for women in his songs, to say the least, but that’s besides the point. We as a whole are brought up to respect and admire a woman who works hard, earns her keep the right way, and needs no assistance whatsoever, much less a man to help her out financially. Likewise, we despise those who make an unfairly decent living from the cheap “profession” of gold-digging. Sleeping with rich guys–some of whom these girls, if they had the right head on their shoulders, would not touch with a 20-foot pole–all for the almighty dollar. Some end up marrying these rich guys, who also happen to be notorious philanderers…and they still stay with their men, even after finding out he’s got girls to the side. Again, all for the almighty dollar–being a rich housewife, after all, does come with pricey upkeep.
So much has been made over the story of disgraced LA Clippers owner Donald “I now have cancer so please pity my racist, sexist old ass” Sterling and his racist remarks, captured on tape by his current (and soon-to-be-former, hopefully) gold-digging mistress. The old coot rightfully deserves the backlash, though given his long history on discriminating against minorities, the shitstorm should have hit him years ago. But not only do I want to kick his ass for being racist, but for also being sexist, and a foolish philanderer.
And then, I’d like to smack some sense into his wife. As well as that gold-digging mistress, who not only could have chosen someone, um, a little younger and more handsome to whore herself to, but should have known better than to do this:

There aren’t enough LOLs for that. (I will give her a little plus for that cool big-ass visor she now wears to shield herself from the ‘razzi.)
I’m as riled up on those women who chose to be with this racist, sexist jerk just because he’s got riches as I am on that racist, sexist jerk himself who should have been ousted from the NBA years ago. Hell, I’m disgusted with any female who chooses to earn her keep in such heinous fashion as gold-digging. Don’t some of them have any respect for themselves? They can brag all they want about the money they get from these rich, old farts, but don’t they know that no amount of money can buy them respect? From anyone or for themselves? Guess going to college or getting an actual job were closed options for them. Fuck, if they were going to whore themselves for money, they could have done porn instead. At least these girls don’t have to see the same man all the time for money, they get to hook up with better-looking guys in some cases, it’s an actual job (though not as well-received as, oh, “reality show personality”, but that’s another discussion for another day), and they’ll be doing the same thing they have to do with those wealthy fossils. So some gold-digger got a brand-new Benz…how did she earn it again? Sucking off the grey-haired, liver-spotted, withered four-incher of some 80-year-old rich guy?!?!
I doubt the philandering of Sterling is going to warrant as much media outrage as his bigotry. But if the media and, to an extent, our society can show censure to a rich, old white male racist, can’t the same treatment be given to a rich, old white married man with mistresses to the side? Much less one who sees no problem in using up women? Sexism is much of a shameful abomination as racism. As well as blatant ignorance, in the case of the women who choose to associate themselves with such a being like Sterling. And this has to be asked: why the hell is his wife (who is repeatedly reported as “estranged” to him) still with him?!?! Why hasn’t she divorced him yet? Did she sign a prenup? Was her prenup so bad that she’d be only entitled to loose change from the sticky floors of her husband’s office? And that mistress of his…how ironic of her to whore herself to a racist. I can only wonder what she’d do if a multi-millionaire, who also happens to be part of the Ku Klux Klan, came her way.
Either way, it’s a total shame some females (I don’t like to use the phrase “women” here; a real woman would never be gold-digging) would bypass getting themselves an actual job and instead stoop so low as to mine the gold-laden hills of rich men, much less the hills of rich, old, racist, sexists pigs. I can only hope, with all the media coverage the Sterling story is getting, as well all that attention on that visor-wearing, rollerskating mistress, that some girls, particularly the young and financially desperate, won’t look at that mistress, and think that’s one way to get rich quick. The quick fix may be tempting, but, ladies, it’s just not worth it. And while it’s easy for me to say that women should get even with these cheating fuckers and get into polyamory themselves, I’d rather see the end to this heinous marathon of female gold-diggers, with little (if any) respect for themselves, who all the more prove the old adage that when “money talks, bullshit walks.”
