And What Is Ratchet Anyway?[dirty alert]
Ratchet is, basically, the new 'ho'. It started with black kids calling black girls the name, meaning something along the lines of 'cheap slut'. Young black girls reappropriated the word, oh-so-politically turning it into their own 'faggot', (aka, don't call me a name -- I'll claim the name and be more ratchet than any other ratchet out there). This video is a gender-bending salute to the joys of being ratchet, which Miley has clearly, already figured out. And re-re-appropriated. It starts to get really good at 1:31 so FF to there if need be.
