Emmy and Oscar Awards: White validation is NOT Black Power

ViolaDenzel

I know everyone is going to be mad at me for this. But it must be said.Everyone is talking about actress Viola Davis winning the Emmy award last night for best actress.  They say it’s historic because no black woman has ever won the Emmy for best actress. Viola gave a very heartfelt speech after winning as she fought back tears. She thanked black actresses like Gabrielle Union,Meagan Good and Kerry Washington for opening doors for  other actresses. And she did quote the great Harriet Tubman(I give her some props for that).  But I have to keep it real with you.  Here at Kushite Kingdom we deal in reality whether people like it or not.  The sad part is she won the award for the show How To Get Away with Murder. A show that promotes interracial sex and homosexuality.  This is not what we should be promoting to black people.  But I understand black actors have to work right?  So they take whatever crumbs the white executives in Hollywood give them.  But the reality is she was crying because she finally felt validated. But by whom?  The rich whites and Jews that control Hollywood of course.  Why do we need validation from those that exploit and dehumanize us?  Why do we need validation from those that degrade the image of black people?  Are we supposed to be happy when they give us awards??  I don’t think so. I find the images of our people very insulting.  They see giving us awards as charity. These white folks know Viola wining this award means nothing.  They still control the film and television industry from top to bottom.  I think these bastards get off on watching us cry when we are given awards by them.  It gives the poor negroes hope that they are finally being accepted. Totally nonsense!!  It’s all the illusion of inclusion.  I say let them keep their damn awards.

Lupita Oscar

Yes I love Lupita too.  She’s a gorgeous woman.  But we really don’t need awards from these people.  Ask yourself…do you want awards from your oppressors?

      • I remember Dr. Umar using the same quote in one of his lectures. 🙂 Props to Viola Davis for invoking Harriet Tubman and the other black actresses that went before. I wish she had also mentioned Robin Givens. 🙂 I watched the emmys from beginning to end. Its sad Key and Peele didn’t win anything. They’re comedy can be insightful once you look beyond the funny parts of it. It was difficult not to notice that the emmy audience itself was totally white save for a few African Americans sprinkled literally among the crowd. As for validation, yes Ms. Davis and other African American women do not have to play dehumanizing or disrespectful characters or take on such roles to be awarded. That’s why its still important for African Americans to have their own emmy and film academy awards, their own film studios and academies. Latino Americans have the Alma Awards. There is the BET Awards but it revolves more around music and becomes a big musical event instead of a usual award show. If only the BET Awards could be transformed into African run and operated award ceremony that doesn’t revolve around the music at the expense of films and tv shows.

      • Thanks Aan. I do think BET needs to be transformed. At the moment BET is promoting horrible images to black youth. Nothing you want children to emulate. Of course the Emmys like the Oscars and Grammys are ran by white folks. And they give awards to those they want to. It’s nothing but charity. It changes nothing for the black collective. It’s nothing but crumbs from your oppressors. I have seen a few episodes of Key and Peele. Some of it is insightful and they poke fun at racism and stereotypes. They is always some truth in humor. However a few years ago they did a skit where they were playing slaves at a save auction. I didn’t like it at all! I found it very distasteful! Our ancestors endured heel on earth and these clowns made light of it. The clip might be on Youtube if you can find it. I was done with them after that. Keep in mind that Key and Peels are both biracial men. And you have to be careful with some mixed race people. Their loyalty does not always belong to black people. Many will side with their white side and do anything for a dollar.

  1. @Kushite Prince, this goes much deeper than this. Look at the roots of the Minstrel Show, which later became Vaudeville, which later became Hollywood’s Birth of a Nation and Gone with the Wind. The whole industry is based on dehumanizing black people. Its all rooted in racism. Every black person should go to the library and get this book – ‘Darkest America: Black Minstrelsy from Slavery to Hip-Hop’
    The book changed my life. Once again good stuff KP – you are spot on!

  2. I’ve never been into these award shows, although I have a guilty pleasure for How To Get Away With Murder. I jus love those suspenseful and thrilling court dramas… Also Aja Naomi King is the only reas0n I watch that.

    • Yes we all have guilty pleasures. I used to watch Law & Order and ER back in the day. I know blacks that never miss shows like Scandal,Power and Get Away with Murder. Many of these shows are very well acted and everyone is rich and good looking. But we have to be mindful of the images they put out there. For instance Viola’s character was married to a white man. And there’s quite a bit of interracial sex and homosexuality on that show as well. Way TOO much for me to stomach.lol But they’re slick with putting their agendas in their programs. And yes Aja Naomi King is gorgeous! I’ve featured on my blog. Can’t fault you for that.lol

      • What do you do? Keep one eye open lol That gay stuff is too much fro me brother. Two men kissing?? Yuck!!! They are trying their best to put it in a lot of tv sitcoms,dramas and films. They are doing their best to normalize it as much as possible. We have to always keep that in mind.

      • I can’t believe it, they’ve done it gain, now Annalise Keating is lesbian, before she married her white knight, Sam Keating, she was in a lesbian relationship with an Eve Rothlow, a former Harvard classmate and lawyer who specializes in Death Row cases…. they really are pushing this thing hard. Not only that, Aja Naomi King’s character Michaela meets a handsome black man in a bar and starts hitting on him, only for him to tell her, he’s gay. Can you believe it? I just finished watching the season premiere

      • The white lesbian on Empire is Marisa Tomei. I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before she gets into Cookie’s panties. I know how the writer Lee Daniel thinks. He is one sick puppy! He is doing his best to normalize homosexuality and lesbianism. He is a slick devil! He is showing black people in a negative light every chance he gets. He obviously loves to do the devil’s work. They must pay him very well to sell out his people.

      • oh and I forgot to mention, Eve Rothlow is a White Woman, played by Famke Janssen. Another thing, on the season premier of Empire, Cookie Lyon was getting cozy with a white lesbian named Mimi Whiteman,, apparently she’s trying to take over empire records and needs Ms Whiteman’s money to do so. Also Jamal Lyon is back with his white latino boyfriend and guess who make guest appearances, Al Sharpton, Don Lemon and Andre Leon Talley

      • The agenda is never ending. One of my favorite actresses is Gabrielle Dennis. She is a beautiful woman. But she has also fell victim to the gay agenda. In the new show Rosewood starring Morris Chestnut.she plays his sister. But she also is a lesbian with a white girlfriend. This is very disturbing. I thought she would’ve played the girlfriend to Morris character. But of course Hollywood hates to see black love on the screen So they pair Morris with a Latina detective and make his sister a lesbian!! I don’t care what anyone says. This agenda is REAL!

  3. Great post! I’m not impressed with these award shows nor when these black celebrities receive awards. I agree with you that they most likely get off on us crying about receiving those awards and validation.

    • Yes they love it. I think Viola is a beautiful sista. She’s a very talented actress no doubt. There are many talented brotehrs and sistas in Hollywood. But we can’t keep taking these roles that degrade our image. We have to do better than this. These little trinkets they give us are meaningless. Yet we cry and weep in front of them like we won ten million dollars! That shows how much we value white validation. This has to change.

      • i think if we look deeper, it shows, and not to make anyone too uncomfortable here, but it shows how inferior we feel to them.

        no one will admit it, but i always sort of roll my eyes when i see a black person get all giddy when a white person is decent to them. i get it, but.. ugh.

        it just goes to show that all of that ‘i hate white people’ bs thats spewed all the time by black people is mostly bullocks. overcompensating psuedo hatred.

      • Yeah I understand your point. That was the point of this post. We don’t need their pathetic awards. They are meaningless in a system of white supremacy.

  4. I’m with you and the other commenters; nice speech but really, what are we so thankful for? And when we do get awards, it’s almost ALWAYS for some stereotypical Black role, i.e. Halle in Monster’s Ball, Monique in Precious or Denzel in Training Day.

    Post on point, as usual. You read my mind. We’ll just have to deal with Viola’s memes and quotes and .gif floating around for a few weeks..

    • So you’ve noticed the pattern too. It’s always us playing gangsters,thugs,pimps and crooked cops. And the sistas always have to play hookers,whores,maids, drug addicts,horrible mothers or sluts for white men. This is really getting old! I’m sick and tired of it! And we’re supposed to show gratitude?? Are you serious?? These white folks are crazy!!! To hell with that bullcrap!! They can get their damn awards! We should just have our own award shows without them. We don’t need their crumbs.

      • I agree wholeheartedly. But wasn’t it the BLACK Entertainment Television awards who nominated and awarded Sam Smith? And why aren’t the Image Awards or Black Girls Rock on FOX on CBS or one of the local channels for everyone to see?

        We have so much work to do it’s kinda ridiculous. We’ll never be equal. Ever. But we could continue building community pride by creating and glorifying positive things by us for US.

        Why is this so difficult?

      • Yeah BET is a damn joke! Bob Johnson sold it to Viacom so it’s not even black owned anymore. That’s why there is so much anti-blackness and buffoonery on BET now. They never want to give us to much positive exposure anyway. This is part of the agenda of white supremacy. Anytime we go to these award shows we are guest in THIER house. So whatever awards we get is seen as charity. That’s why we need our on tv shows,film industries and production companies. ALL controlled by us. Then we don’t have to beg for white validation. They love to see us beg for their acceptance. It’s like we have this sick mentality that our lives are meaningless unless whites LOVE us. We need to wake up and realize….they never will.

      • Right on. Thank you for that link. He’s right; I didn’t watch the show either but I can only imagine. And I’ve met Taraji once and she is a real one, very personable and kind. I’m glad she stood up for her sister! And good for Viola; she’s beautiful and talented and successful and natural and confident and they hate her for that.

        But it’s still an award for a role where she’s married to a white man, cheats on him and is just a very sad, troubled, conniving woman.

        We still need our own. Validate our own. Uplift our own. Support our own. For all kinds of shit! Not just acting.

  5. Never saw the shows maybe the half. Didn’t like it. I notice black stars get golden crumbs and water down roles to smh. I stop following Hollywood due to lack of diversity, racism and propaganda within the silver screen.

  6. I am so glad you brought this to the attention of our people. After hearing that Queen Viola Davis won, I was grateful. Grateful that she kept her hair natural and presented a statement as a black woman as best as she could. However I didn’t watch the show because I don’t believe in tuning in to all white owned media. I much rather spend my time supporting our people and putting the dollar back in our community’s pockets. I love that we have these women in the media but it is always disheartening to see the public react so quick to this little bit of shine our people are pitied with. We don’t need this kind of validation. We are already royalty disguised as property. -Ytheg

    • I couldn’t agree more Yasmintheresa. You’re right,we should be supporting our own people more often. We get so happy when they throw us a bone. Of course it’s nice to see a dark skinned sista with natural hair get some shine. As they should. But it’s like the same thing they did with Lupita Nyongo. They know they rarely show the majestic beauty of black women…so they know we will get real excited when they do. I’m not falling for it. I’m tired of this same game they do. They love to play with our emotions. I’m sick of racist ass Hollywood! they can keep their silly award shows. We don’t need them. And we sure as hell don’t need their validation. Indeed we are royalty! I feel you on that 1000%!

  7. @ Kushit Prince came by to check your page out because you be leaving some real true comments on Trojan Pam page.
    This is all propaganda white supremacy has an agenda to fulfill. Furthermore, the television shows “How to get away with murder” & “Empire” has been heavily promoted. Also this makes the second time Viola Davis & Tariji P. Henson been voted at the same time for a white supremacy awards remember they both we’re nominated for & Oscar at the same time. Just recently racist actor Jack Nicholson came out an stated he like the television show Empire. Jack Nicholson was the actor who refuse to have black female actresses Pam Grier in the movie “The Wicked Witches of Eastwick” that had Cher & Michelle Phiefer. Since Halle Berry is used up white Hollywood is recruiting there next mainstream black actresses which I believe will be Tariji P. Henson. Hollywood gives black people an illusion to make them believe black people are making be progress. Hollywood is still pimping Beyonce until they can find another replacement.

    • What’s up Shanequa? Glad you finally dropped by. You’re right,Halle is used up so they’re looking for the “next Halle”. I agree that Jack is a racist bastard. Of course he likes a show like Empire. It’s full of degrading black images,homosexuality.lesbians,colorism and all around anti-blackness. These awards don’t mean anything. I am not trying to hate on Viola at all. I’m just keeping it real with people. Sometimes the truth makes people uncomfortable. But it is what it is. We can’t keep playing these dumb degrading roles then try to demand respect by other races. It doesn’t work that way. You must have pride and dignity and say NO to these roles. That’s true they love pimping Beyoncé. I think they’re trying to make either Rihanna or Ciara be her replacement. Out with the old…in with the new! You know how they do.
      And come by more often. You know you are always welcome around here. 🙂

      • @ Kushite Prince
        I truly believes Rihanna will be Beyoncé replacement. This is the same game they use for sports with black males, example the face of the nfl sports these are the following males they used Reggie Bush, Victor Cruz, Colin Kaepernick, RG3 aka Robert Griffin now they have Russell Wilson. Europeans exploit them until their no longer useful to them.

      • Yep! They just use you until a certain point. Athletes are just work horses too. It’s just another form of slavery. They use our natural talent to playa sport and make billions for them. But we never reap the benefits of our hard work. Same goes for singers and rappers. We are still servants for these people. Its just a more modern twist on slavery. Many people can’t see it though.

  8. I’m going to post two links to a topic that needs to be discuss especially at the colleges & universities. The black male athletes are love & admire by the students & the communities but they don’t face racism that much as the regular black student population. This situation also happens in high school as well. Some of these black male athletes aren’t involved in black movements because they don’t care, these black males live in their own little bubble.
    Furthermore I heard that the college football players are segregated from the regular black student population which isn’t done by accident. They have these black male athletes believe they are special & honorary white males. These black males athletes love the ideal of being accepted by Europeans or non black people. When it come to the white sorority & faternity parties on campus you will find many black male athletes, also this gives them easier access to all the white or non black females. When they get to the NFL they think its a badge of honor being the “special negro” which makes them feel that its better to associate with more whites then blacks, especially black women.

    http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/115496/the-divide-between-black-athletes-and-black-students-a-concern-to-both

    Go to the two minute mark. You will see only black football players at the white pool party.

    • Thanks for those links. It shows that white supremacy is damn near everywhere. Whether in Alabama,Canada or Brazil. This is global system we are battling. So it is no different in the colleges around the country. The divide is in American culture so naturally the black athletes will get treated different than the white boys. And there is nothing great about being the “special Negro”. But it’s really sad to see young brothers falling for this trap. White supremacy is very deceptive to the black mind. We have to become more aware of how this racist system works. Thanks for those links. Good find sis!

  9. @ Kushite Prince
    I do apologize for throwing your post off topic. I have a QUESTION I need you to answer. When Trayvon Martin was murder the police found a Arizona drink & a bag of Skittles on him. During the time of Trayon’s death, Skittles sales increase now they have just recently sign Marshawn Lynch their first athlete to an endorsement deal. Furthermore Morehouse College, Spelman College, Clark Atlanta University were buying bulks of Skittles to sale for a fundraiser to donate too Trayvon Martin’s family. The company Skittles even felt that it would be inappropriate for them to get involved or comment on the situation of Trayvon Martin.
    If that was a white child that was shot that made national news, Skittles would have donated money to the family as soon as possible. On top of that it was good that the black college student came together to donate money to Trayvon Martin’s family, but they helped put more money in Skittles pocket. Furthermore Skittles going to increase in sales even more because they have black athlete Marshawn Lynch. I have not heard Marshawn Lynch at all made a post on social media about Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Sandra Bland or other black people who made national news for being killed or brutally beaten by police.
    P.S. Skittles also donated money to Marshaw Lynch youth camp.

    • If Trayvon was white I think Skittles would’ve donated money a long time ago. There is a clear double standard when it comes to black life. Black life is meaningless in Amerikkka . And you and I already discussed Marshawn Lynch before. We all know now that he is NOT what he claims to be. He is just a dumb jock who stands for nothing. He should’ve spoke out about the deaths of Martin,Sandra Bland or Eric Garner. But as you can see he is quiet as a church mouse. I have also lost respect for him after his comments about the women he likes. He’s nothing but a coward. And for the record, I don’t buy Skittles or Arizona Ice Tea. They are both bad for your health anyway. And besides they are both owned by old white folks. Buying those products just makes them rich. And they don’t give a damn about us…so f*ck them!!

  10. Thanks for posting the video by Harvey, Kushite! I’ve watched it several times, and he was telling the truth! This is a very good post, too! Thanks! 🙂

  11. Speaking of Hollywood racism, here is another video by Harvey. He focuses on an episode (from two years ago) of **Law & Order: SVU** that is based on Chris Brown and Rihanna. This video is about an hour long, and contains a lot of profanity, so you have been warned.

    • I agree with him Michael wasn’t even dead yet and those bitches were STILL attacking him. Now they are going after Conrad Murray like they gave a damn about Michael. And yeah black females were so up in arms about Chris yet didn’t say SHIT about Charlie Sheen, Mickey Rourke, Emile Hirsch, Mel Gibson, Matthew Fox who beat up a female bus driver, Tommy Lee and even John Lennon.

  12. I hope Lupita Nyong’o she will not fall into the network of white supremacy!
    White people are already trying to push her into the system, she is too kind and gorgeous to stand next to a white racist man! I pray for her!

  13. First off the Grammys, Emmys and Oscars present a lot of images that are VERY negative for all youth not just black people. And please Viola is an ass kissing suck-up! In damn near every interview she tears herself down in order to get love from white people and damn near shed tears when Missy Anne i.e. Charlize Theron was singing her praises. I agree that these awards are a joke they only promote the maids and criminals. Don’t forget Viola was also nominated for that garbage “The Help” and had a white girl on her lap affirming how wonderful she was I felt like I was going to fucking barf! The actors themselves need to be held accountable for what they do too. Halle is a goofball dumbass having kids out of wedlock with white men and saying her kids are ‘black’. It won’t change until those Negroes wise up and stop playing white folks dog begging and fetching for their master/owner/boss it’s sickening

  14. This is a sign along with a few others like the phony ass Million Man March part 2 and other thing since Obama that show you the Liberals are flexing their muscles, as black people can clearly see these white Liberals are no better than white conservatives, but black people still trust these people. Hollywood is Liberal owned, and is in cohesion with other Liberal organizations, despite being Liberal it is one of the most openly racist sections of Western society, the leadership of Liberalism is showing clear messages of black people and black people pay good money, spend a lot of time, taking in this crap. They are still hooked to these Liberals even after this performance, be prepared for Liberals to revert to past forms as the white population declines and warm the whites with an overt media displays of coonery, super white Africans and old school images of savages in jungles and slavery. Black people are too interested in Hollywood’s image of them and Liberals fake ass helping to be look at the fact the white man is declining, this is a chance to organize, use police violence as a crux to the overall community to capture them and use this period to reorganize and plan for the feature, too caught up in what Liberals, fake socialists and Negro preachers are saying who all smoke from the same crack pipe. We are really lost white people are looking not at us but Asians as the major threat throughout this century, go to the West Coast and you will see how Asians have made major inroads into white power over there, ownership of small businesses, their own associations, funding from China, Japan and other parts of Asia, use of their own private schools, they are now taking over courts in California, gentrifying even white areas, all politician listen to what they have to say, ownership over resources, their own sections of town where not even white corporations can set up (homebase for operation, like what blacks should have done with Harlem 30 years ago), high rates of outside investment into their businesses and community, they are really pulling a lot of strings. They know a large number of us are hooked on the lifestyle they envisage (Hollywood), fund (99% of black, work for these same whites), and their ideologies (Anglos and Jews run our major political affiliations the Democrats and Anglos totally own and direct most of our churches). They are just checking if black people have woken up, clearly not.

    • You make some valid points. I don’t see a difference between liberals and conservatives. Whites are the same regardless of their political affiliations. Both want to take advantage of black people and don’t want us to advance as a people. But I do think your other points are very valid. Thanks for the comment.

    • Thank you for that great video! I love Solomon. That brother keeps it real!lol Negroes for hire?? That’s hilarious!lol But he is on point. We all know Trump is a loud mouth racist pig! Any black person with common sense wouldn’t support that fool. Only a very gullible moron would support him. But this video is so truthful. Thanks for posting it.

      • @Kushite:

        You’really welcome. I’v watched this video several times, and it is very truthful. I agree with everything that he said. I really like what he said about Black people making their own videos — like on YouTube — instead of waiting for others to make the first. I also like how he tied present-day racism in Hollywood to the first big blockbuster, the racist “Birth of a Nation”, so we shouldn’t be surprised about how we’really perceived in Hollywood.

        Another reason why I like Prince Solomon’S videos is because instead of just showing just one photo, he shows many photos as well as videos to tie in to what he is talking about. I also like the background music he plays in his videos. Again, thank you for watching the video and commenting.

  16. As long as our people are still begging for other races to accept us, we will forever be disrespected. No one respect a race of people who refuses to do for self, always asking for others to accept them, & have no respect for their culture.

  17. Will Smith’s company is just as white as the Oscars. Jada & Will Smith is only about themselves, the reason they called out the Oscars was because Will didn’t get nominated. The Smith coon so much but hurt that their white friends didn’t nominate them.

    Phyllis Hyman back in the day called out Diana Ross & Tina Turner for not hiring their people on there production team.

    • The Smiths are sellouts. Will Smith claimed in an interview that racism wasn’t a big deal anymore. This fool claimed that racism was “rare”. He’s a damn clown! Jada is just upset that Will didn’t get nominated for an Oscar. Now they want to act like they’re pro-black. What a joke!lol They both need to go sit down somewhere. They should be worried about their androgynous children they’re raising. And thanks for the link with Hyman. I really miss her. She had an amazing voice. And she’s right to call out Diana and Tina. Hyman was the real deal!
