Thugmaxxing is a term used for white guys who try to imitate urban black guys in order to get laid. Thugmaxxers will adopt a ghetto style of dressing, speaking and musical taste, These people can also be referred to wiggers.
Thugmaxxers are often attracted to Black women and desire a more dangerous life in ghettos and the hood. This can also lead to a more "exciting" life filled with danger, drugs, and violence. However, their desire to thugmaxx may be due to impress other women of different races by imitating that of a 'gangster' black man. Some possible results from thugmaxxing could include joining a gang, having a successful rap career, or developing success in basketball
Because of this extreme lifestyle, the lifespan of thugmaxxers can be cut short. Yet some incels choose this path because they prefer a short adventure-filled life rather than a boring life without sex.
History[edit | edit source]
Ever since the start of the transatlantic trade, white men have had a fascination with black men; an explanation may be that they felt inferior to their slaves, so they introduced laws to prevent white women to engage in hypergamy with black men, examples of this may include in states of America where interracial marriage was ofcourse banned for a long period. This changed in the 1960s when the civil rights movement started. White men had to start competing in the sexual market with black men and while they generally won in the end, interracial dating started to become more normalized causing white women to date outside their race and date black men, women who often go for Black men more then white men are often known as 'snowbunnys'. To counteract this trend, some white men had adopted some aspects of the African American culture, like Elvis Presley or Frank Sinatra, leading them to massive success, But after the Jim Crow laws were removed, thugmaxxing started to become more and more common as a way for white men to keep themselves sexually relevant.
One of the earliest examples of a thugmaxxer is to be found in the fictional character of Felix in Harry Crews' book All We Need of Hell. Felix is the son of white parents who, as the narrative develops, begins to adopt the mannerisms, speech, and sensibilities of a black Southerner athlete he spends time with. Although the book was published in 1987, it was actually written in the 1970s.
