You may have heard them called jezebels, mistresses, trollops, tramps, girlfriend #2, birds, rats, and side chicks. For as long as there have been unstable monogamous relationships there have been side chicks. Normally these women and in some cases men of ill-repute have been content playing their position and laying in the cut. With the glamorization of the side chick culture by shows like Love and Hip. As well as celebrity side chicks turned wives such as Gabrielle Union, Alicia Keys, and Angelina Jolie just to name a few. It makes one wonder when did it become cool for young sisters to aspire to be number #2 and in some case #3,4, or even 5. One also questions why is this derogatory sub cultural practice now being closely associated with women of African American descent?
