Think Tank Tuesday 7/19: The Bitches & Hoes Double Standard

picture source: youtube
Controversial Youtuber Tommy Sotomayor is back at it -- stirring up a little controversy but this time he brings up an interesting topic for discussion. Is there a double standard when it comes to who can and can't refer to black women as bitches & hoes? 


In the video below Mr. Sotomayor talks about a discussion he had with a woman where at some point he tells her "I don't like black bitches." 

Somehow that discussion made its way to Worldstarhiphop.com resulting in a firestorm of derogatory terms hurled at female members of his family. Sure most of his videos seem to degrade black women but this one does present a valid argument -- why is it okay for rappers and entertainers to refer to black women as bitches and hoes but not okay for others to do the same? Check out the view: 



What are your thoughts? Is Tommy Sotomayor right in his reasoning -- women who are okay with entertainers using derogatory terms towards them should have no problem with other men doing the same or is his simply off his rocker?
