TKC TRENDSPOTTING: RESEARCH SAYS 'RATCHET' IS KANSAS CITY'S FAVORITE DEROGATORY SLUR OF THE SUMMER!!!



Let's offer a quick review of this weekend . . .

KANSAS CITY VIOLENT TEEN FLASH FIGHTING ACROSS THE METRO AREA FRIGHTENED LOCAL RESIDENTS WHO MISTAKENLY THOUGHT THERE WAS REFUGE IN THE SUBURBS!!!

But even more importantly . . .

SOCIAL MEDIA RESEARCH NOW INDICATES THE THE TERM "RATCHET" IS THE NEW HOTNESS AND DEROGATORY HIPSTER TERM OF CHOICE TO REPLACE THE OLD AND BUSTED "THUG" SLUR!!!



Mind you . . . This trend might only hold for a couple of weeks. So it's important to enjoy it for now.

What we like . . . The "ratchet" slur isn't necessarily racial and NOBODY is sure if it's a noun, adverb phrase or just something that some white broad heard in a Nicki Minaj song and decided to steal. Whatever the case . . . Here's a fun rundown . . .

- Westport was ratchet this weekend and insiders are counting the days till Port Fonda closes up shop and the whole place goes back to the late 90s ghost town.

- The "ratchets" @ Worlds Of Fun were called out this weekend because stabbing somebody and fighting at and amusement park is rather ratchet.

- The streetcar seems kind of ratchet because only paid consultants and politicos looking for support and post-term jobs are cheering the thing along.

And it's important to know that I'm not sure this one qualifies as appropriating Black culture . . . We'll have to see if a white rapper picks it up soon to know for sure.

More in a bit . . .

Ratchet definition.

a situation or process that is perceived to be deteriorating or changing steadily in a series of irreversible steps.

"a one-way ratchet of expanding entitlements"

Straight out of Google definitions. The very first definition.

When I first heard this term it was in tweets by black people concerning Westport. So is it racist since black people are the ones using the term? I have never once heard a white use the term.

I have a ratchet I can use to thump some ratchet thinking assholes in the head with.

Monkeys with names like EBTbia, Obamaphonedre, LaWelfaria, and Section8ondra using terms like "Hammer" and "Ratchet" even though they couldn't/wouldn't use a hammer or a ratchet to make an honest living.

Typical nigger slang...they make up shit because they cannot speak English.

Zulu dictionaries are few and far between due to the "Little Library" ban.

The Bear's favorite new word, SKUNT .

That covers some ground.

Tony, you are misusing the word. It doesn't mean thug.

BUT white trash in honkey heights who bring their ratchet asses into downturn should know that they can still get their assess beat!

Ratchet would reefer to the trailer park trash that acts niggardly!

Welcome to 2014 Tony, maybe if you left your mommy's basement for more than toilet paper and bottles of jergens you'd be more in tune with the world. Ratchet is on its way out.

LOL, 9:29. That is usually when new words come to my attention. Unless they are really useful, filling a gap in expression, I tend to leave the new slang to people who are more hip than I am. Tony has sounded really goofy these last couple weeks with "ratchet".

"Thug"...."ratchet"....

You really think a guy who uses betwixt and denizens with such aplomb gives a shit about being considered hip?

LOL @ TKC

Kansas City is pretty ratchet! Not just the Black folks, either. There are some downright ratchet white people in this City too.

Taymar braxton invented ratchet....she was using it to make fun of ghetto black people. She also says bou-jie as bourgeoisie. Taymar said that Tony was boujie because she doesn't eat sould food anymore. All taymar does is talk about soul food...oxtail soup, chitlins, greens, mac and cheese...lord help us with taymar braxton.

I also throw around the word proles, as in proletariat, but I don't have a TV show.

I also hate to say this, but black people are really good at inventing words that make fun of each other. I am as bad as them, because I can add up costs of hair extensions, tell if you have a bad weave, tell if you have a nasty track in your hair, quess how long its been since you did your hair by smell, and can tell what kind of fingernails you have on. I gotta say, almost all my black friends are natural, with natural hair and natural nails. They are also in relationships with non-black men and have the most beautiful looking children you have ever seen.
