What is a Tameka?

An angry, verbally abusive woman

A "Tameka" is an angry woman who is verbally abusive, selfish, and deceitful. The pejorative comes from urban communities in Pensacola, Florida, who often use the term to criticize Black women (similar to how Karen is sometimes used to insult White women). However, it is unclear who the first "Tameka" was that inspired the term.

You may see or hear Tameka used online or in real life (IRL). For example, a Twitter user may comment "What a Tameka" on a video of a woman shouting at a parking attendant. Or your friend may tell you not to act like a Tameka when you berate the server about your food.
