The Origin of the Word “THOT”?

image

ALLEGEDLY The origin of the word “THOT” now acronymed as “That Hoe Over There” stemed from the nick name of Sarah Baartman.

In the early 1800’s Sarah Baartman traveled from South Africa to Europe in plans to seek wealth. The natives weren’t used to seeing a woman with such stature; big buttocks, breast, lips, etc. So she was used as a circus act and displayed to the natives. She gained the name “La Vénus Hottentote”.

After she failed as a circus act she was introduced to prostitution. Due to over exposure,  rape, and stress she died at the young age of 25. Bet you never “THOT” about that.

  1. Terrific article! That is the kind of info that are supposed to be shared around the web.
    Shame oon Google for nnow not positioning this submit upper!
    Come on over and consult with my website . Thanks =)

  2. Where did the KKK get THOT from? Were they acronyms for something? I need more information before I believe this. I know about Ms. Baartman’s tragic story, I just need more about the Klan’s description or definition of the word THOT.

  3. But where does KKK and THOT have any relation. I’m familiar with Sarah story but we need sources. I agree THOT is a stupid word and I hope it dies.

  4. I assume the claim here is that ‘THOT’ derives from ‘Hottentote’ [sic]. This is clearly not the case, as ‘THOT’ is an English acronym, and ‘Hottentot’ is an old Dutch/Afrikaans word that refers to, what we call today, the Khoisan people (Baartman’s ethnicity).

  5. When Black men’s make up their words white men’s take it and use it. We all got to pay regardless of what we have done. If the KKK did they have to pay for all they have done. This isn’t nice to call no one those names. God is going to get all of us. Can’t we all get along? Life is short people wake up. Get over who did wat cause it not Kool at all.
