valentines day funnies sophistiratchet

To all of my sophistiratchet sistas, Happy Valentine’s Day!

And thank you to all of the Black and proud to be sophisticated and ratchet women on Twitter, Instagram, and everywhere else on these Internet streets for showing a brotha some love for the sophistiratchet article I wrote back in November, where I outlined my description of the perfect woman. I am now accepting applications (or Sophisti-rachetcations) from women wishing to be my future ratchet boo mama.

In summary, last time I wrote that a sophistiratchet woman has to be as apt at working the pole as she is the boardroom. Her acumen for dissecting the intellectual nuances of W.E.B. Du Bois‘ “The Soul’s Of Black Folk” must be equally effective in assessing the “life-lessons” of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” (Let’s call her a late-night ghetto-tologist.)

And while her temperament must be that of a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, her resolve to protect her man must be akin to one of those Black chicks on “Flava of Love.” (Like that time Saaphyri went HAM on that White chick over ownership of a bed.)
