The Case for Reparations for Overweight Black Women

Get out your wallets. It has been revealed that “fat black b****es” are entitled to reparations. Ashleigh Shackelford, a progressive intellectual of the feminist persuasion, makes the case:

Real talk: I’m exhausted with the idea that fat Black b****es have to take care of everybody. Like, full stop.

I’m tired of everyone expecting something from me. Whether it’s using me as inspiration porn, using me as dissuasion porn (read: someone to never look like or love/like/f***), to people eating off my flesh for their own resilience, support or power: f*** you, pay me.

Let me be clear, though: when I say, “F*** you, pay me,” I mean, “F*** YOU. PAY ME.” Pay me a check, pay me consistently, provide me safe housing, offer me a job with benefits, run me those Beyonce tickets, finance my clothes and wigs and aesthetics, cultivate accessibility to spaces and provide seats that fit me, see and validate my humanity.

The demand for seats that fit her could be particularly onerous.

Fat Black B****es like me are trained to make it so that everyone around us is comfortable — except ourselves. We’re trained to give until the well is dry and then some. We are taken from, stolen from, exploited, robbed, scammed, shamed, raped, assaulted, denied love, denied safety and expected to support everyone else through service, inspiration and mammification.

The term mammification “refers to the interactional dynamics that pressure Black women to assume a status-reassuring deference to whites.” If I had only gotten that master’s degree in Victim Studies, I wouldn’t have had to look that up.

I’m steadily taken from by everyone who comes into contact with me. People snatch my joy because being happy while fat destroys the notion that happiness is inherently linked to thinness, whiteness and able bodied-ness. Men and masculine folks regularly snatch my safety away by commenting on my appearance and using me as the punchline to their misogynistic jokes. Adults and children (often, whole families) gawk at my body and existence, affecting my mental capacity to enter certain spaces (such as the f***ing mall); they interrogate my body, my gender, my worthiness, my humanity like I’m an animal in a zoo.

Maybe if she behaved just a little more like a normal person…

Whether it be to perform ability to the thin and ableist standards set for us, or to perform like I don’t give a f*** walking past groups of adults and kids laughing at me for daring to exist — I have to be “on” all the time. I remember one particular example of a thin, white girl who followed me around the club to record me dancing. She literally chased me around the club until I grabbed her phone and smashed it on the ground. And I wish a nigga would tell me I didn’t do the right thing, or say I took it too far. THIS IS MY LIFE EVERY DAY. I’M BULLIED EVERY DAY. I’M READY TO FIGHT EVERY DAY. Like I said, F*** YOU, PAY ME.

For those who might have found it difficult to follow her sophisticated line of reasoning, she summarizes her argument:

In conclusion, the case for reparations for fat Black b****es is: f*** you, pay us.

This isn’t some garden variety foul-mouthed moron with mental problems sounding off on Fakebook, but an actual feminist opinion-shaper, as Katherine Timpf notes:

Shackleford is … the creator of an organization called Free Figure Revolution, and a respected feminist activist who speaks at a whole host of progressive conferences and events. In fact, I myself recognized her name, and later realized she had been one of the speakers and moderators at the VA NOW Feminist Conference I attended in Richmond last year.

The entitled victim mentality nurtured by liberals has reached its apotheosis. It will now collapse beneath the weight of its own loathsomeness.

    Understanding that it was most likely my tax dollars that allowed this to happen I would feel much better if I just kept them instead of letting you do this to your self. Thank you for bringing this to my attention madam.

  2. Henry says:

    ACK!! What a disgusting POS. Still, there’s someone out there willing to slap her thigh and ride the wave in…

  3. Chronos Z. Wonderpig says:

    Vote for Hillary (or don’t vote at all) and this girl’s dreams will come true…….

    Pure attention hunting. Nothing about that is serious. It could have been compiled from hundreds of tweets, even.

  5. Bluto Blutarsky says:

    If you’re going to die of heart disease before you hit 35, then yes, honey, your body is the problem.

    TELL IT GURL!!! i know how you feel! lemme tell ya, i paid $60,000 in income taxes in 015 and what kinda thanx does i gets? i get told that i am the cause of everyones problems, and the source of all the evil in the world. does any of you ungrateful leeches ever once just show the slightest gratitude for those of us that pays yo beels, or houses you, or feeds you, pays for yo obama phone or educates (ha) yo keeds? hell naw! well you know what? we’re getting tired of YO sheet too. whew. i feel ALOT better!

  7. Mr. Freemarket says:

    However, it only became my problem when Obama and those you support demanded that I pay for your medical treatments, honey.

  8. Mr. Freemarket says:

    The fact that you paid $60,000 in taxes means that the government is letting you keep way too much of your money.

    The next election will resolve more of that problem, regardless of who is elected.

  9. SNuss says:

    Isn’t “progressive intellectual” an oxymoron?

  10. Mr. Freemarket says:

    “People snatch my joy….like I’m an animal in a zoo”

    Honey, if your happiness is related to what other people think or don’t think of you, giving you money isn’t going to correct that problem.

  11. Mr. Freemarket says:

    “Progressive” “Intellectual” and “Progressive Intellectual” are all oxymorons. It implies that you are willing and able to learn the lessons of the past.

  12. jayeS says:

    I’m not responsible for what you shove into your pie hole. Furthermore, quit hanging out at WalMart, I’ve seen plenty of photos of yourself at Even your outfit screams “play checkers on me!”

  13. Jester says:

    OK everybody — I know that you know that I know that you know what I’m thinkin….

  15. V Saxena says:

    If anything, I DESERVE REPARATIONS for having to suffer the sight of these hideous whales!

  16. grayjohn says:

    All that aside, you are still just a fat black woman and you deserve nothing, which is what you will get.

  17. bob says:

    If I gotta fuck her she better pay me.

  18. bob says:

    What a mo-ron. We now know why our country is so screwed up. Idiots like her are actually taken seriously. When we were a great country half-wits like this were seen for what they are, pigs.

  19. bob says:

    there’s a reason why black men prefer white women.

  20. J.j. Cintia says:

    Civil Rights was one of the worst mistakes America ever made. Savages are either at your feet or at your throat, there is nothing in between. This “reparations shuck and jive” is just asking for TRIBUTE. When will it ever end? When you slap them down, HARD. Just giving an inch to these animals started it all. They don’t just want a mile, they want it all. $777 Trillion is probably more money than everything in America is worth, but these retards aren’t kidding. Black African Obama being President makes these moronic beasts believe they are now in control here like South Africa. They will attack and kill you unless you give them everything or your shoot them down in the streets. Civil Rights started this, but until they start getting gunned down and forced to their knees, these endless demands will now never end. You should have listened to the Klan. They knew these animals well, and warned you they would act this way if Civil Rights passed. Now you either kill them or they’ll kill you.
