That sounds nice... I like the way you made it look official with the 80% bullshit.


Official or not, the number is not unreasonable considering our history - which includes interracial rape...

Was Malcolm fucked up?

Lenny Kravitz?

Benjamin Banneker?

Sade?

Perhaps it the 1/8 or 1/16 (fuck the math)foreign blood that roles thru my veins that has me some what pissed at your nonsense.

If you looked at me and did not know you would say that I am black. If you did know me you would still say that I am black.

I find it rather sad that you have become what you hate in others.

So for me this thread is dead and a waste of my efforts as we cannot change an attitude that does not want to change.

Huey...

Would you agree that you will never see a brother in Hollywood scraping a white woman the likes of how Halle got done in "Monster's Ball?'

Maybe, and it is not even close, the scene with Wesley Snipes and Annibella Sciori (spelling) in Jungle Fever would be an issue... but that was very mild.


To be honest, Hollywood hate to see black men with ANY race of women, period, including black women. How else do you explain why black men and women can't get along with each other without choking the hell out of each other or cussing each other out on TV(i.e. "Girlfriends" on UPN)? Outside of being robbed or raped by a black man, nothing scares Hollywood (or America for that matter) than someone falling in love with a black man. I'll agree with you to a point about "Jungle Fever". Spike Lee could've made the scene more graphic, but it wouldn't improve the plot. Plus, "Jungle Fever" was contradicting: If a BM is with a WW, it must be only sexual reasons, but if a WM is with a BW, then it must be love. Roll Eyes bs

Speaking of tapping it, I remember on Howard Stern or some other talk show, someone was talking about racism in the porn industry. It's worse than Hollywood, supposedly. Some white or Asian female adult film stars would be ostracized as if they gotten HIV, if they did sex scenes with a brotha, because their predominately white male fans get all intimidated. Crazy as hell. These nutjobs rather see Jenna Jameson fuck a goat, than a black dude.

There's a movie ("The Bone Collector") with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie (speaking of a white girl I'd like to see get dug out by a brotha) where Denzel and Angelina wind up an item at the end but Denzel is - of course - paralyzed from the waist down halfway through the movie .... Roll Eyes

There's a movie ("The Bone Collector") with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie (speaking of a white girl I'd like to see get dug out by a brotha) where Denzel and Angelina wind up an item at the end but Denzel is - of course - paralyzed from the waist down halfway through the movie ....


lol Now that's some freudian sh!t right there. lol

Somewhat off topic [but I didn't want to locate the appropriate thread] ...

This past weekend, I saw [under protest] the movie "Something New." As I expected, the movie didn't make me think about the issues that director, Blair Underwood, suggested; rather, it pissed me off. While Underwood could have produced a great positive movie commenting on Black male/female relationships, he chose to produce what, in my view, was an anti-Black relationship movie.

Underwood cast [the fine as she wanna be] Lathan as a successful Black woman with an inviolable checklist for men; but it turns out that this list applied only for Black men.

In this movie, Lathan was faced with a suitor that failed to meet any of the criteria on her checklist; he was not white collar, he was a gardener [later explained as a landscape architect], he drove a beat up truck, listened to loud music that differed from her taste, his entertainment interests differed from her's and he brought his dog with him wherever he went. And, or rather - But - He was white. This man no more fit her criteria, than the Black men she refused to date; even though the movie presented both her best friend and her parents as examples of successful Black relationships that would have violated her criteria.

So I was surprised [Tongue-in-Cheek] when Lathan accepted a "hiking date", something she clearly found distasteful ... They hiked ... it rained ... they kissed. Then despite her protestations that "this can't happen", they end up in bed. No, she tells him nothing can happen between them and pushes him out her door, he returns knocks pushes his way in and breaks down her resistance with a passionate kiss. Does Underwood expect us to believe anything other than the white guy's race got him in that situation? Because Lathan clearly makes it known that she has her standards, that Black men clearly have not/could not meet.

Next scene, they are practically living together; even though the movie doesn't even suggest that they've had any [or many] in depth conversations. [The one in-depth conversation they had, led to the "you don't understand me conversation" that resulted in her kicking him to the curb.]

Underwood, then, introduces himself as an equally successful, ambitious, single, hetero-sexual, monogamous, Black male, that prefers quiet evenings in, than hanging out; who BTW meets every item of Lathan's previously stated criteria. But by this time, Lathan has been introduced to, but does not yet recognize/acknowledge, enlightned thought: that her list be damned, it is love that counts.

Underwood could have made this same movie with a Black love interest and raised the same issues, including Race; had he wanted to present Black Male/Female relationship possibilities. td6

Just for the record, Kweli4Real, Blair Underwood didn't direct "Something New." In fact, the production of this film, did not involve a "man" at all.

It was directed by a young (31 years old) biracial woman, by the name of Sanaa Hamri...

. . .produced by Stephanie Allain and written by Kriss Turner--ALL women.

I believe Blair Underwood might've given the movie a different spin, if he had the chance. Perhaps unfortunate, but his only role in the film was as an actor.

Yeah, Fab ... You are absolutely correct. Underwood had nothing to do with the movie's production. I made a logical leap ... Underwood presented a pre-movie Introduction, and given his anti-Affirmative Action, except for when it comes to one of his productions, bent, I presumed that he produced the film.

My bad, but how many directors/producers' egos would allow the help to present their work?

Sanaa Hamri is an up & coming new director with a couple of films under her belt (the titles of which escape me at the moment).

My personal thoughts are this: It ALL came down to "money."

The "powers that be" probably thought to make the "real money" selling the DVD. Blair Underwood is a good choice (imo) to introduce the film's DVD bonus features.

But I did enjoy the time and energy you put into cutting and pasting a multi-cultural and multi-racial dictionary of people into this blog.

Was Malcolm fucked up?

Lenny Kravitz?

Sade?

Malcolm was fucked up, and then he got treatment under the Hon Elijah M.

I'm gonna have to agree to disagree on this one. Malcolm was fucked up only due to America's laws and its racism. His racial background had nothing to do with him being "fucked up."

Not one person can help or decide what ethnicity he/she was born with. True, Malcolm was messed up after starting a life of crime and becoming an addict, before being cleaned up by the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the NOI, but let's tell the truth here.

Malcolm's father was brutally killed by the Klan. Normally, when a parent dies or is killed, the widowed or surviving spouse is compensated by the insurance policy. Unfortunately back then in the '30s, white folks who murder black people, never went to jail.

Because it wasn't labeled as murder, the murder of Malcolm's father was declared a "suicide." bs

As if many African-American men committed suicide by bashing themselves in the back of the head with a brick, hanging themselves by a rope and then later hog-tie themselves to a railroad track to be severed in half by a trolley.

And because his father's death was declared a suicide, the insurance didn't compensate Malcolm's mother and her family (His dad was the breadwinner of the family), therefore leaving her penniless, breaking up her family and separating Malcolm and his brothers and sisters in separate foster homes, and his mother later ending up in a mental institution herself. Malcolm was fucked up, but not due to his DNA or his racial background, but by America!

Who are you kidding, country clown? All you did was cut and paste someone else's work. There must be some kind of website out there that celebrates "bi-racial" love - or it is a book given to you by your momma.

W.E.B. Du Bois is on that list, so is Booker T. Washington. But, Shango still doesn't understand the difference between bringing something and bringing nothing. I mean, if he really believed this crap he's written, the very least he could do is cut and paste someone else's work... right? He could find someone else's work to cut and paste... couldn't he?

Please Shango, let's attempt to use some gray matter here. I repeat...

Huey...

Would you agree that you will never see a brother in Hollywood scraping a white woman the likes of how Halle got done in "Monster's Ball?'

Maybe, and it is not even close, the scene with Wesley Snipes and Annibella Sciori (spelling) in Jungle Fever would be an issue... but that was very mild.


To be honest, Hollywood hate to see black men with ANY race of women, period, including black women. How else do you explain why black men and women can't get along with each other without choking the hell out of each other or cussing each other out on TV(i.e. "Girlfriends" on UPN)? Outside of being robbed or raped by a black man, nothing scares Hollywood (or America for that matter) than someone falling in love with a black man. I'll agree with you to a point about "Jungle Fever". Spike Lee could've made the scene more graphic, but it wouldn't improve the plot. Plus, "Jungle Fever" was contradicting: If a BM is with a WW, it must be only sexual reasons, but if a WM is with a BW, then it must be love. Roll Eyes bs

Speaking of tapping it, I remember on Howard Stern or some other talk show, someone was talking about racism in the porn industry. It's worse than Hollywood, supposedly. Some white or Asian female adult film stars would be ostracized as if they gotten HIV, if they did sex scenes with a brotha, because their predominately white male fans get all intimidated. Crazy as hell. These nutjobs rather see Jenna Jameson fuck a goat, than a black dude.



There's a movie ("The Bone Collector") with Denzel Washington and Angelina Jolie (speaking of a white girl I'd like to see get dug out by a brotha) where Denzel and Angelina wind up an item at the end but Denzel is - of course - paralyzed from the waist down halfway through the movie .... Roll Eyes


^^^^ THAT'S SO DENZEL MAY SEEM LESS THREATENING AS A "DAMAGED", PARALYZED BLACK MAN THAN A VERILE, STRONG ONE THAT WOULD INTIMIDATE THE GENERAL WHITE PUBLIC....OH GOD, OH NO, A GOOD LOOKING, STABLE MINDED AND HEALTHY BLACK MAN WITH AN EQUALLY GOOD LOOKING, STABLE MINDED AND HEALTHY WHITE WOMEN? WELL, THAT WOULD BE A CRIME WOULDN'T IT? Roll Eyes

Duh, we already know that. If that's what you want, go get him. Time waits for no man or woman, so if a white/black/Latino man is what you want, then get him.

And just for the record, White men and Black women have been together waayyyyyyyyyyyyyy longer than Black men have been with White women, okay? The difference is that only brothas were lynched for committing miscegination (i.e. race-mixing).

There's never been a black woman nor a white man being lynched for dating each other. No one ever questioned nor lynched a white guy for dating interracially, whether the WOC was black, Latina, Asian or Native American (depending on how rich he was). For the one thing, they have a luxury of dating who they want to date without worrying about receiving any physical harm for their dating choices.

It's amazing how so many people who hate on who are dating/marrying black men, and yet get amnesia and become so understanding when their own particular tastes are questioned.
Very good point that I had not thought of before.

I am referring to American history only. If it was legal in America for Black men to arm themselves and protect Black women and children without any debate, this wouldn't be a concern. It would be called common sense.

What POV do you think I'm speaking? I've seen some White men and Black women who IR date each other, but catch a case Jerry Springer style, when seeing a Black man and a White woman together...and don't let the couple be good looking, 'cause that will really set 'em off. It's one thing to be upset when a Dennis Rodman sck is taken by a Madonna, but let's say (hypothetically speaking) Tyson Beckford with Jessica Simpson or Scarlett Johannson. Hell will break loose.

I wouldn't describe this as "together"......

Actually, this is true.


Just like the statement about African women being 'together' with European men made me a little ill(because it was a question of power, dominance, and rape, not a fair 'relationship') This statement irks me because African men in this country, because of slavery and Jim crow, oppression and exploitation, could not, even if they wanted to, defend African women from our rapist and commen oppressor, and it's not like any record of the brothers sticking up for us was going to be recorded by massa.

On another level, we can actualluy argue that in a weird, somewhat selfish way, they do. I've seen brothers sleep with/marry/date an unimagnable amount of European women and still get irritated when they see a sista with with a European man.

But now that I think about it, that isn't necessarily defending us. It is just male selfishness, wanting all of the women for theirselves, all of the options in their favour. Also, I would argue that White men haven't historically 'defended' White women(with their history of repressing them and all), but they were reacting to a power dynamic, they wanted to have all the women for themselves, and a Black man dealing with a white women is a threat to that power dynamic. The conquorer does take all the 'booty' in a state of war.

As for my two cents.

People will do what they want even if it does not serve their group interests. I wouldn't have much of an issue with interracial dating(because we all are human beings) if we lived in a world where certain ethnicities/races weren't oppressed and exploited in mass by a European elite, White supremacist, patriarchial system. I don't think it is wise or proactive to date/marry Europeans/Whites until we have gotten our liberation. I also think that is why it doesn't bother some as much when folks date/marry other oppressed and exploited minorities(we have similar liberation objectives). I say lets get liberated and put an end to global white supremacy and then maybe we can be about the 'one love' thing. IMO, dating interracially prior to freedom, liberation, and self determination is counterproductive.
