Advice For Sisters Who Get Too “Loud”

- By Bossip Staff

Who is the “loud” sister? She’s the one everyone can hear cackling on her phone in the break room. She is the woman heard throughout restaurants. She’s the chick yelling across parking lots.

The perception of a loud black woman is that of an uncouth, ghetto banshee; and, while it could be entirely wrong, it’s what runs through the minds of people passing by the girl screaming into her phone. Perceptions derive from a series of impressions and are often the basis from which people are judged. The stereotype of the loud black woman is not going anywhere any sooner than that of welfare baby mamas. So, if unknowingly loud women want to be perceived differently, they have to turn it down. Well, at least until they’ve exceeded their goals… (Continue)

  • if anything be noble

    Well, white women must need to get the memo, too, because the stuff I hear coming out of their mouths at work and out in restaurants at the top of their lungs… Nothing dainty there. But that’s “cute” for them, I guess, since they’re having “fun” and breaking stereotype.

      Another blk woman avoiding the issue!

    • life!!!

      @Tt boy STFU!! NO ONE IS AVOIDING THE ISSUE. The point is not just black women are loud. Its some women, not one type of woman speak for whole race, because where i am from and how i was raised you learn to humble yourself. Society always labeling the black race as ignorant…If it wasnt for media our race wouldnt be painted in such a bad light.

    • Ejay

      Wrong Life. It’s you (BW) not the media that started it and continues it. It’s not like the media is taking black female actors and telling them to “Be loud and ignorant” Plus, it’s the shows that BW choose to go on such as, Jerry Springer or Maury that show BW being loud not CBS News.

  • Glok..Woke up this morning screaming,...Fuk Da World !!!

    THATZ WHY I CANT DEAL WITH NO NENE LEAKES TYPE BYTCH MAN …TOO GOT DAMN LOUD AND NOISEY…LOTZ OF FIGHTS,ARGUMENTZ AND THERE WILL BE BLOOD!

  • if anything be noble

    @ yup!, I’m sayin. If Black women at my job were half as loud and obnoxious as the white women and I had to hear the swearing, yelling and raunchiness that comes out of white women’s mouths in stores, malls and restaurants coming from Black women, oh please know there’d be an immediate CNN/Nightline show on it to discuss the “epidemic” of it: ….. “Filth: And the Black Woman’s Mouth.” Smh

  • WithAllHonesty

    I’ve seen loud women of all races. Equally loud to black women and in equal quantity. I’ve seen the loud bubbly/cheery white girls, the loud white girl trying to be hood, loud Latinas whether they were speaking in English or Spanish (they talk 3xs louder in their native tongue, just my observation), the list really goes on and on. I haven’t seen too many Asians who outspoken or loud.

    All I can say is this is another stereotype created by the media. But women in general need to control the volume of their voice, a loud mouth is turn off.

    • TT BOY

      WTF?
      Do you HONESTLY THINK that the article is created by the media? !$%@#*&. Walk out your door and listen to black women!

      Count on black women to put a blind eye to their problem!

      Oh..Black women are $%^@% perfect!
      SMH!

  • if anything be noble

    Oh. And please don’t let us get started on how loud some Latinas are when talking in Spanish. Do yall turn deaf when you speak Spanish? Then just sign, mami. For real. You are KILLING the sound barrier. Si. Everybody’s loud.

    • DaHonestTruth ~ Always Keeping it Real

    I’m a black man, TT. What I said is based off what I’ve seen and HEARD. Women of all races tend to be on the loud side. Its unattractive.PERIOD.

    I don’t appreciate the label being placed only on the sistas. Its ignorant. I call out bs whenever I see it, no matter who it pertains to.

    And I’m gonna call you out on yours right now. You seem to want to stir up the battle of the sexes amongst black men and black women right now. And its not goin’ down.

    The saddest part of this article is that after reading it Black women still dont get it. They really dont think that they are loud! From Oprah’s “I’M 50!!!”, Monique’s “Haaaay! Yes baby! Yes!!” to the average black girl that you have to endure on a regular basis. Apparently a lot of black women, like ya’ll idol NENE FROM ATLANTA HOUSEWIVES think this shows people that you are strong, confident black women who are “doin it for theyselves”. Sorry ‘ladies’ and I use that word sparingly. The only thing youre doing is making a so called stereotype become REALITY. Wakeup! This is The #1 reason the Majority of black relationships dont work out.

    • TT BOY

      Whew! Thanks! damn!

    • Curious1 aka Flawless Beauty

      I disagreee…#1 reason???…you aim very low…this is the least of why we hate each other…the least…
