Keeping it Real, Stating the obvious, bringing light to questionable behaviors in a “non-judgmental” or slightly comical way. At times, when necessary, can be used to be condescending. The phrase can be placed where ever the user feels most appropriate “throwing” shade… in a sentence. This phrase gives the user a “pass” for saying something that may typically be viewed as off-putting/ offensive.
Example1: I was in a meeting with Tommy “shade but no shade” his breath was making my stomach hurt…

Example 2: Why did I see Brandon out on Friday “shade but no shade” I think he was with another woman.

Example 3: Shade but no shade, those pants need to retire…

Example 4: Wait, Tammy lost 50 pd., lost her job and was seen a hott mess... is she smok'n, shade but no shade
