Is that a Darth Becky t-shirt you're wearing?

Yes. Yes it is.

That's awesome!

I know!

Wait…who is Darth Becky again?

Darth Becky is Iggy Azelea, a reference I made in "Where 'Becky' Comes From, And Why It's Not Racist, Explained"

It’s actually easier for me to say whether a White woman would be considered a Becky than it is to explain the criteria. Hillary Clinton? Not a Becky. Natalie Portman? Not really a Becky. Taylor Swift? The Beckiest. Iggy Azelea? Darth Becky. There are several theories on its etymology, but the one that makes the most sense is that it stems from the first line of “Baby Got Back.”


I see. So it's an awesome t-shirt and Iggy Azelea/Darth Becky shade??? Wow! Who made this, and where can I find one?

The shirt was designed by Arsha Jones, the amazing founder of Tees in the Trap. And it's part of our VerySmartBrothas collection, also found at Tees in the Trap, of course.


Awesome! Thank you for the info!

No, thank you for being a friend. Your heart is true. You're a pal and a confidant.

Is that from The Golden Girls?

No. But if you threw a party, and invited every one you knew. You would see the biggest gift would be from me. And the card attached would say "Thank you for being a friend."


Ok, man.
