SLAM THE TRICK

 

Gale White and her two best friends, Myesha and Sinthia are having good lives.  Each week they gather to play a lively game of cards and take pleasure in each other’s company.  They are successful African American women who are all enjoying healthy romantic and sexual relationships with their men.

Six months later, all that changes....

One by one, the men in their lives dump them, divorce them, steal their money, betray their vows and obliterate their hope.  Then they do something worse:  They all assume relationships with white women. 

The ladies are left holding the bag to this dirty little African American secret that has found black women rejected and adrift in the harsh sea of modern relationships.

Gale and her friends are tired of sucking it up, looking the other way and pretending that there isn’t a problem.  So in their grief, they do more than get mad.

They Slam The Trick.

Three women cross the bright line of propriety and exact a clever and poignant retribution that goes from the core of their emotional pain to a greater discovery of themselves.

Slam The Trick is a wickedly comic novel that takes an unflinching look at interracial relationships and the social and emotional fallout that has been behind sealed lips.  It is a funny and moving story of love, race, sex, and personal triumph.

 

“Slam The Trick is like a hard punch-- right to the heart.” -  GARY HARDWICK, Director of The Brothers and Deliver Us From Eva.
 
"I read it in one sitting and could not put it down. It was riveting, funny, inspirational and real... Slam The Trick should be a Film! - Tracey "Twinkie" Bryd, Casting director of Jumping The Broom, stomp The Yard and Notorious.

 
”Kizzy Toussaint is either crazy or a genius. I can’t decide which one." - a.a. clifford, author of SexLife and Escape to Sex.

This a comedy so here are some of the quotes I like:

 

"You can have all the white women you want.  You can have white ass coming out of your ass and you will still be who you are.” - Gale

 

"I don’t wanna hear that mean black woman stuff.  I’m the sweetest bitch I know." - Myesha

 

“A man is about as complicated as a rubber ball.  It’s muthafuckin’ rubber and it’s a muthafuckin’ ball.” - Sinthia

 

She would never do this for him.  When he’d asked her, her lover’s response was “How would you like me to stick something up your ass?” - Kizzy

 

 

SLAM THE TRICK

FIRST CHAPTER 


  
CHAPTER ONE: 

GALE

 

 
It’s a terrible thing to be a woman. 

I’m not talking about the pain of bearing children, menstruation, or menopause, not biological misery.  Nor do I speak of the psychological, the mental fallout of carrying the burden of woman-ness.  I refer you to the secondary meaning of the word, which is “extremely formidable,” terrible with a capital “T” as in a Terrible storm.

And just why is it Terrible?  Because some time ago, we women bought a bill of goods about ourselves, a big steamy pile with a pretty red bow on it. 

Someone told us we were equal to men.

This notion is nonsense.  Men and women are too different for that kind of comparison.  It’s like apples and orange elephants.  Women are equal to other women and men to other men.  As to a comparison between men and women, there is only one, which holds water: We are their emotional superiors.  What we lack in upper body strength we more than make up for in heart.

And if hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, there is something worse: a woman freed from the fallacy of male equality.  This is a force of nature, an intellectual and emotional Superwoman capable of bringing the world to its knees with awesome and frightening consequences.

So, it’s a terrible thing to be a woman.

Because a woman is a Terrible thing.

My name is Gale White and I readily admit that I’m too much sometimes.  Too loud, too cute and too damned smart for my own good.  In this story, I will say some things that are mean, nasty and just plain evil.  And I know it’s gonna get me in trouble with a lot of people.  But I learned a long time ago that no good ever comes without pain and struggle.  So, if I must pay a price for telling this tale, then so be it.

My mother and her friends used to play bid whist each week and discus things like this.  Sometimes they played four-handed with partners or three handed bid called Three, Five Nine. 

In these games, the women dispensed knowledge, empowered each other and ripped each other to pieces.  I became a little more of a woman each week at those card games.  

Also in the card game there was a special suit of card called a “trick” each game that won out over every other suit. (In some places it’s called a trump) And when a player played it, she’d slam that trick on the table and show her power at that moment.

The metaphor was evident to me.  A woman had to play her hand in life wisely and when you got a trick you had to slam it down with power and majesty, take the win and move on.

Now before I get to my tale, I want you to know that all the names here are made up and while the story is real, I’m fudging a lot on the people and places to protect the innocent.  I don’t need any more trouble, you know, not after everything that went down. 

We live in a big city with a large black population.  You might catch a reference that will make you think of Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit or D.C., maybe L.A., Dallas or even Oakland.  It won’t matter in a while.  If it happened in one city, it’s happened in all of them.

At the time all of this began, we were all happy to be dating the men in our lives.  And like any adventure, it began with a few simple words.
 

 

From the author. "I'm borne by the will of my soul. I live by the soul of my will."
