Film about Nat Turner’s slave revolt..Will it be accurate?

The Birth of a Nation has been a years-long passion project for Nate Parker (perhaps best known for playing the romantic lead in Beyond the Lights), who wrote, directed and produced the film despite being told over and over again that it wouldn’t “work.” As he told the Hollywood Reporter, the not-uncommon arguments were made: it wouldn’t work internationally because of its black leads; it would be too expensive to film the violent scenes; the hero at the center—Turner—killed white landowners. Yet he persisted, and here it is, making huge waves at Sundance.

The title, of course, is every bit as political as you think it is—by calling back to D.W. Griffith’s 1915 opus, which helped reinvigorate the Ku Klux Klan for the 20th century and shape dangerous, harmful depictions of black Americans in the years that followed, it is a clever act of subversion. “I’ve reclaimed this title and re-purposed it as a tool to challenge racism and white supremacy in America,” Parker tells Filmmaker, “to inspire a riotous disposition toward any and all injustice in this country (and abroad) and to promote the kind of honest confrontation that will galvanize our society toward healing and sustained systemic change.” The film also stars Armie Hammer and Aja Naomi King.

The film is set to be released later this year. Does Hollywood want to see black people revolting against their white oppressors?  Is this something the white media wants to be promote?  Will this film wake up black people?  Will it cause riots and more racial division?  Or is this just more Hollywood racial propaganda?  I know how Hollywood operates.  Rarely do they do anything that will raise the consciousness of black people. Or do a film that will WAKE us up and see who is our real enemy. We will have to wait and see until the film is released. We shall see.

Also did you know that black media mogul, Byron Allen, offered $20 Million to buy the rights to the Nat Turner Movie “Birth of a Nation”, but Nate Parker sold the rights for $2.5 Million less ($17.5 million) to white company, Fox Searchlight?? Did Nate Parker forget that White People Executed and Lynched Nat Turner? So what You look like selling the rights to a story about Nat to a White Company??

Sources confirmed that Parker, who owned a significant stake in the movie, had a great deal of control over who emerged as the winning distributor.

Allen confirmed it: “Yes, we did make a bid for $20 million and a wide theatrical release for this outstanding film…”

At what point do we stop the “unadulterated” WHITE LOVE, and We got to start Loving and Supporting Each Other. This makes me think that at some point in this movie, Nat Turner’s story is going to be compromised. I hope not, but it seems that way, because Too many wealthy white people are applauding it and offering too much money, which is a pretty good indicator of the “white savior syndrome.”

Because I do not see how a movie about Nat Turner will cause white people to be excited..???…Well hey, I wish Nate much success…But its just more authentic and logical for a black man to distribute a film about a black hero AND REVOLUTIONARY like Nate Turner.

Nate Parker

And this is a pic of Nate Parker and his wife Sarah.  Well this explains a lot. I wonder what the great Nat Turner would think of his choice of a wife?  I think you know the answer.

Hatred for Dark Skinned Women(Darker the Berry)

Melanin3

The image of the black woman is under serious attack. It has always been that way for African people. Under the system of white supremacy all things black and African looking must be degraded and made to look “less than”. It has been this way for us since we have been in contact with Europeans. The image of black men is horrible as well. Black men are seen as lazy,pimps,drug dealers and dead beat dads. And the media helps to perpetuate these negative images. For black women in many ways it’s worse. Of course all things are usually worse for women in a male dominated society. But for women their value usually is assigned to their beauty. Of course this is no fault of their own.  But I don’t believe that the true worth of a woman is her physical attributes.  There are many other qualities that give a woman her worth other than a pretty face or nice body.  In this white dominated culture white women are seen as the prettiest. If a white woman has blonde hair and blue eyes she is seen as the romantic(Roman=European) ideal.

There is  extreme color stratification in America and abroad.  Since white supremacy is global,many other races are brainwashed into believing that anyone with light skin is better than anyone dark skin. This is why many Hispanics and Asians worship light skin people in their race. Skin bleaching is very popular in places Asian and Latin countries. The bleaching cream is flying off the shelves. Everyone is in a quest to get as light as they can be.

Which is why this woman(above pic) would do this to herself. She was already a beautiful women before. Why destroy such beautiful melanin-rich skin?  It’s because we live in a world that devalues dark skin and especially dark skinned women. There are many beautiful dark skinned women I’ve met throughout my life. But in the media their beauty is not recognized by this racist society.  Hollywood would rather uplift the beauty of light skinned Hispanics or Asian women over black women. Many dark skinned women feel as though they are not properly represented… and they’re  right.  The African woman was the standard of beauty for thousands of years.  It’s only under this current racist system  that things are different. No other race of women came close. This is why the media must perpetuate the lie that white women are supreme. Black women have the better body by a mile. Who else comes close? Many Puerto Rican,Cuban and Colombian women have nice bodies but they get it from the African woman anyway. Asian woman are no comparison either. Many Asian women are shaped like little teenage boys. And white women have no hips,thighs or butt. And the black woman ages better than all of them put together. What about hair? Our hair is the hair of the original people of this planet.  Our hair curls and rises up to the Sun.  Hair is not supposed to lay flat and lifeless. We have hair…everyone else has fur. So black women hold your head up high.  Don’t let them shame you about wearing weaves or saying it’s nappy. Non-black women always talk about black women’s hair because the black woman has them beat in ALL categories. I’ve covered the beauty of our hair in a past post. In the video below Rashida Strober explains her insecurities she’s had being dark skinned.  And how she copes with colorstruck black men.  She doesn’t hold back and never bites her tongue! She cuts right to the chase.

BW2Melanin6

I’ve also noticed that the darker the woman is the better she ages. That deep dark chocolate melanin is so beautiful and powerful.  This is why all these albino mutants hate on the black woman.  They want to degrade her and call her ugly and nappy-headed.  When in reality they know it’s all lies and they’re really jealous.  In this racist system they must lie to us and insult the Black Queen and uplift the white whore. This is why the media is always giving airtime to Kim Kardashian and Iggy Azalea. These are talentless white tramps but they get a pass because they have sex with black men.  They get no pass from me.  And black men need to wake up and stop giving these tramps props.  They are nothing but imitation black women.  And these biracial woman are also being used as the “ideal black woman”.  These white media puts way too many biracial/mixed women in commercials,sitcoms and films. I can count on one hand how many black women who are not biracial that appear on a sitcom or drama.  This is all done to keep the dark skinned black woman invisible.  They put white,Mexican,Indian,Puerto Rican,Asian women…all ahead of the dark skinned African looking woman. And this is why you have these sellout black entertainers who run out and marry some non-black woman so much.  They want to be given props for having a beautiful woman that society will accept.  That’s why you can tell a lot about a man by who he chooses to marry. And the African woman is considered the ugliest and most unattractive woman in the world. And this is the way the white racists want things to be.  But I reject all their lies.  The dark skinned black woman must be respected and uplifted.  And black men need to set the standard and stop following the standards of other races.  If your standard of beauty is the same as a white man…how are you any different than him?  The dark skinned woman is the mother to us all. That’s a fact. Whether you like it or not.  The dark skinned woman reminds them of Mother Africa.  Which we have been taught to hate therefore her presence offends  the brainwashed.   We don’t want to be reminded of where we come from. And no one respects a race of people who disrespects their mother. So you look like a fool calling a dark skinned woman tar baby,blackie,dark as night,nappy headed hoe,pitch black and ugly.  She is a reflection of you.  So when you diss her…..you’re dissing yourself. Keep your head up sistas!

Why Mulattoes and other Hybrids are not African

Drake

This post is written by blogger Lumumba  Afrika.  He makes a very strong argument about why the “one drop rule” is outdated.  This is a belief that is catching on as many black people realize that they are not benefitting from this belief.  A belief that was started by white people during slavery.  We have accepted their pseudoscience as though it is the gospel truth.  Is the one drip rule outdated?  Is this pseudoscience? Do you think it’s a form of colorism? The video is by YouTube/blogger Bhekizitha. Read the post and watch the video and let me know your thoughts.

It took me a year to finally accept this conclusion. I had an argument with a YouTuber concerning this issue in reference to a video he posted entitled “Just because you got black in you.” He proceeded to say that racially mixed people (i.e. people with parents from two distinctly different racial groups with one being Black/Afrikan) are not Afrikan and I predictably had an emotional argument referencing the systematic rape that occurred to Afrikans perpetrated by whites (Europeans) in the USA which resulted in the wider spectrum of skin colour seen in the Afrikan population in the US today. However, after failing to convince him and unsubscribing from his channel, I had several months to listen to interviews and read a lot of material, historical, biological, sociological, and political. I eventually reached the conclusion that indeed he is correct. Hybridized people are not Afrikan and should not be accepted as such.

Before you throw around the term “racist”, let me define the term as per my understanding, The terms “racism” and “racist” are actually misnomers. The phenomena should more accurately be termed “ethnocentric economic protectionism for the purposes of seeking, securing and wielding wealth and power”. Understandably, with this more accurate term, it is more convenient for the “racists” to use the former terminology because it deftly conceals the true nature of the phenomenon and makes confused, naive, and unsuspecting people believe that “anyone can be racist” because they treat someone of another race or more appropriately termed “geno-cultural group” (Baruti, 2006), rudely or make disparaging comments about them. Moreover, the more academically accepted terms “white supremacists” and “white supremacy” are actually not a correct terms either, although from a eurocentric point of view these terms do surreptitiously stimulate the “utamaroho” (Ani, 1994), of Europeans and people classified as white, these terms are nevertheless used to describe the phenomenon in critical race theory and other fields of study. The appropriate terms are actually either “white world domination by terror” (Kambon, 2006) or “white hegemony”. This is an ideology that holds that whites are better, smarter, and more capable producers and managers of wealth than non-white people, and specifically those categorized as black. Hence it justifies by any means necessary the total destruction of any successful model of development independent of whites or without white people leading, organizing and directing it. The logic of this racial hierarchical model proceeds downward with each racial group being more adept at this activity than the lower caste. This ideology informs the system of “white supremacy” that is presently masquerading as globalism. Therefore, it is impossible for a non-white victim (and especially Afrikans) of this system to be a racist, practice racism, be a white supremacist, white hegemonist, or participate in white ethnocentric economic protectionism or “white world domination by terror” in any way that ultimately benefits his or her existence within his or her geno-cultural group and the group as a whole entity as such.

So back to why mulattoes are not Afrikan. Firstly, I would like to posit the view that mulattoes are genome terminator entities, meaning that they can’t reproduce themselves like their respective parents can if they had have mated with one of their own geno-cultural group. A mulatto must mate with another mulatto to reproduce themselves or else their offspring reverts back towards whichever geno-cultural group they have chosen to mate with or they create another hybridised offspring should they decide to mate with another hybridised person or someone from a geno-cultural group which is not one of their parents. Hence their genome pattern cannot maintain structural integrity and they terminate. This is actually the strongest argument for why mulattoes are not Afrikan. Every other geno-cultural group on the planet knows this including the hybridised groups such as the Arabs. The Hispanic/Latinos are another matter which I will address later. I won’t discuss the Indians of South Asia (see the talk by Dr. Velu Annamalai – “Dali: The Black Untouchables of India” on YouTube) but one could reasonably compare my discussion below of the Hispanic/Latinos with that of the Indians, although it is not entirely the same. Other geno-cultural groups never accept a hybrid as one of them. This DOES NOT mean that they treat the hybrid unkindly or should do so in all cases, nor does it mean that the hybrid cannot participate in economic or educational opportunities. However, at the level of strategic power in which the lives and destiny of the geno-cultural group are at stake, hybrids have no place, no relevant voice in matters such as these as they are not part of the geno-cultural group’s GENETIC survival. This is an error that Afrikan people have made. They have assumed that because of “racist” practices of other geno-cultural groups to cast off their hybrids among us, even when they have been created but not fully accepted among the ranks of others, and furthermore the other groups made rules about why they have done so, (i.e. the one drop rule), we have felt an obligation to accept them which has resulted in a non-exclusive preachment befalling the Afrikan geno-cultural group. This failure to address who is Afrikan and who is not has left us vulnerable to infiltration, not only by hybrids, but by non-Afrikans under the false claim that they are too Afrikan because they were either born on the Afrikan continent, they have some distant ancestor who participated in or was raped into producing a hybrid, or they cling to an as yet unproven theory of the “out of Afrika hypothesis” of human origin founded with the propagation of Darwin’s THEORY of evolution. This has left Afrikan people without a codified set of standards, rules and regulations about who is an Afrikan and has exposed us to confused mulattoes seeking a constituency and other unscrupulous interlopers seeking to dominate us.

It was part of racist practices of our enemies to create a one-drop rule. White men did it so they wouldn’t have to legally and formally acknowledge the offspring they had as a result of raping Afrikan women and mulattoes. In fact, I would submit that non-Afrikans who pursue sexual relations with Afrikan people are practicing ethnocentric economic protectionism by way of furthering the social hegemonic aspect of this system, albeit it in a vulgar, perverted, and insidiously biologically destructive way. These people know full well that at present Afrikan people are the least respected geno-cultural group on the planet, so they are seeking to fulfill a need to feel superior to someone through a sexual encounter (which is one of the most vulnerable situations, psychologically and spiritually, a victim of this assault can engage in) which is done most likely due to a sense of inferiority in the non-Afrikan’s own geno-cultural group, or the perpetrators are inherently lustful and perverted and seek to satisfy carnal sexual fetishes at the expense of the non-geno-cultural other, in this case the Afrikan.

The Afrikan geno-cultural group is under no obligation through this behaviour to “accept” mulatto offspring as part of our geno-cultural group anymore than other geno-cultures. It is due to our relative powerlessness and refusal to strictly define who is an Afrikan that has lead to this confusion. Afrikans as part of our liberation and industrial renaissance of Afrikan civilisation, must codify and institutionalise a valid definition of who is an Afrikan. I would suggest reading Chinweizu’s discussion of the “mirror test” for some insight into this matter (Chinweizu, 2006).

Latina Mag

Now concerning the so-called Hispanics or Latinos. The term Hispanic simply means a person who speaks Spanish. It is not a racial classification. Therefore, since Spain is in Europe, Hispanics are primarily European white people. The victims of the conquistadors, who were forced to speak the language are largely the remnants of the indigenous nations which were extant in the Americas prior to invasion from Europe. There has been massive hybridization due to the forced rape practiced by the Europeans and the voluntary rape that results from having been conquered wherein both women and men seek to relate in an intimate way with the geno-cultural group that represents power and control in the imposed society. Latino is a Spanish word that means Latin. Latin is another now defunct language that was spoken in Europe. So the two terms to refer to this group are European languages in origin which have nothing to do with the heritage culture of the preponderance of people in the Americas that these terms indicate. Latin or Latino is used because that was the language of the political theological institution (the Catholic Church) used to repress the minds and cultural rituals of the victims of the colonial enterprise in order to make a more docile population able to be exploited efficiently.  Detractors or rebels of the theological doctrine were tortured or killed, so this created a fervent adherence to the religion closely intertwined with one’s own survival which we still see presently. Today in this population, since those people who speak Spanish in the Americas are from various origins (i.e. Afrika, Europe, and indigenous American nations), it cannot be said that these people are a distinct race. In fact the archetypical “Latino” or “Hispanic” is actually a hybridised person who is conditioned in a false consciousness to identify with the colonial culture that was cultivated by European settler-conquerors. Within this group there are still enclaves that have retained their indigenous language and cultural practices, but for racist reasons they are labeled as “Latino/Hispanic” to again stimulate the utamaroho of the European descendants and immigrants that are interspersed in this population, so that they feel a sense of comfort knowing that the language still reflects their own worldview and identity. The majority of the hybrids in this population are victims, and some have reproduced to the degree that they can be considered a distinct geno-cultural group or race, but they have not as yet organized themselves in such a manner mainly because they are still prisoners of the European colonial social construct. Additionally, given the imperial reliance on their economic activity as a source for raw materials, cheap labor, and consumption markets, they are victimized economically and therefore cannot undertake the necessary steps to develop themselves in this way. Moreover, they still have confused Afrikans (who are decedents of enslaved Afrikans and are still repressed by both the hybrids, and Europeans) suffering from a false consciousness within their midst, as well as Europeans that are desperately trying to maintain their colonial relationship and keep enact their white hegemonist system of exploitation. Therefore, the people known as “Hispanic/Latinos” contain people on the spectrum of hybridised individuals, culturally mis-oriented Afrikans, indigenous nationals, and criminal Europeans attempting to persist in the maintenance of the monstrosity they have created.

Saudi National Guard Recruitment and Training Operations

On the other hand the Arabs have been able to organize themselves into a geno-cultural group. This was largely done 1400 years ago through the development of their own political theological institution known as Islam which is simply Arab Christianity (Popp, 2010). Even though there are hybrids contained in the Arab population, they are either historical hybrids produced in antiquity when these white groups invaded Kemet (Egypt) and created offspring with Afrikan women, or they are offspring of the degenerate Arabs that have kidnapped Afrikan women in the present era and used them for their perverted pleasure as sex slaves. The hybrids they create are used to oppress Afrikans in Afrika and promote the expansion of Arab nationalism (i.e. Islam), even though these hybrids are repressed and discriminated as not really being Arabs themselves. It is a psychological phenomenon that is a result of both hybridization and power relationships being enforced by the Arabs on their Black Afrikan victims which compels the hybrids’ fealty to the white Arab dominators. The hybrids see the true Afrikans as powerless so even though they are mistreated by their fathers’ geno-cultural group, they feel the power that is available and the superior social and economic position they have as Arab identified hybrids, gives them the motivation to mistreat the Afrikans in a brutal way for their fathers’ people. So since these two groups, the Arabs and Hispanic/Latinos, are organised for white power and whites have used sexual predatory practices to attack their victims and consolidate their control, it does not mean that the hybrids are white, nor does it mean that their non-white status is a basis of solidarity with Afrikans. This is a MAJOR historical point that Afrikans have missed, refuse to accept, or have been deliberately mis-educated from knowing. The multiplicity of these factors has brought about the MASSIVE confusion about this matter. The subject is so sensitive that to even broach the topic with many Afrikans will result in emotional outbursts and vicious name-calling instead of calm deliberation and effective implementation of the proper provisions that would protect Afrikans from being used as the world’s sexual toilet and dumping ground.

Lastly, and this is a radical position, I don’t think that Afrikans and Europeans, or for that matter other geno-cultural groups, are the same “species”. Now before you levy a charge of “Eugenics”, I am arguing that the criteria and hence the definition of “THE human species” is incorrect and specifically culturally derived from European culturally structured thought (Ani, 1994) to serve political purposes and a quest for power. One of the main criterion for Europeans arguing that now (after several previous theories about the sub-human status of Afrikans and other races) humans are one species and there is “no such thing as race” is that different geno-cultural groups or these “non-existent races” can breed with one another, hence if two biological entities can procreate together it supports the likelihood that they are part of the same species, whereas if two biological entities cannot breed, for example a cat and a bird, then they are two different species. This notion is absolutely absurd. I think far too much emphasis has been placed on the breeding criterion and fact that whites and blacks for instance can have hybrid children and therefore, there is no difference other than skin colour between us and subsequently, we should then “not see colour” and accept all as human. This directive notwithstanding, in the Afrikan worldview and traditional Afrikan societies, Afrikans never posited the idea that people were “born human”. Human beings had to be developed through education and socialisation, and upon successful completion of this process, then the status of human was imparted upon an individual within the Afrikan socio-cultural context. (Baruti, 2002, 2003, 2006, 2009) It was not simply bestowed because one was born of a homo sapiens male and female. This is a distinct difference that exposes the cultural nature of Europeans’ scientific classification and purposes. Basically, I am arguing that Afrikans, Europeans, Asians, Amerindians, and other hybridised people constitute different species of the human “family”. The word “family” in this sense is of a biological grouping, not the emotionally laden image of mom and hugs from your grandmother that the colloquial use of the term “family” generates. I am not arguing for some “shiny happy people” view of humans on earth or that we should all start holding hands and be blind to the different interests of these geno-cultural groups and their different destinies. It is quite obvious that the Amerindian nation of North America had a decidedly different destiny than say the “Sinic” East Asians, so I purport that this fact is still present today, although hidden under universalist and globalist rhetoric. The main point is that if two species or types of humans from two separate and distant geno-cultural groups procreate, it stands to logic that the offspring is neither one or the other geno-cultural group, and thereby constitutes a new geno-cultural entity that must proceed to either develop a cohesive group with other hybrids, or must “disappear” back into one or the other parent’s geno-cultural group. Azania and its “coloured” population is a stark example of this phenomenon, as are the Arabs and Hispanic/Latinos, although to a lesser degree, that I mentioned before. Nevertheless, I will not take time now to argue whether or not the Afrikan parentage of humanity is valid, but suffice it to say that the present definitive difference in geno-cultures will remain until one or more are exterminated by another (which I am not advocating, but is nonetheless a possibility). So, under these conditions, for Afrikans to help promote and accelerate this process by claiming that all hybrids with one Afrikan parent are Afrikan and are not either a separate geno-cultural group, or are not Afrikan and are part of the other parent’s geno-cultural group, (because hopefully at some point we will have the consciousness and power of definition to codify and implement this idea into reality) is a recipe for extinction and assisted genocide.

Flint Water Crisis: Forced gentrification?

Dr. Rick Wallace, Ph.D. makes the comparison with the eery similarities between the indifference being displayed by high-ranking officials in Flint to the manner in which the Katrina disaster was handled in New Orleans, and the complete displacement of blacks in Detroit. Is this water crisis environmental racism? Hmmmmm……

Biracial Women are the Most Beautiful(and other myths)

This is a video from the talk show The Real.  It’s a silly gabfest with five women as the hosts.  One Asian woman,a Hispanic and a biracial woman.  As well as an overweight dark skinned woman and a black woman with a bad weave.  In this video clip they interview biracial actress Grace Gealey. Gealey stars on the hit drama Empire. I’m sure you’ve heard of the show. The show that promotes homosexuality,colorism,lesbians,murder and black degradation.  Well anyway in this clip Gealey says that she is from the Cayman Islands.  She claims that in the islands they don’t really look at color.  They pay more attention to culture. Really??  I think she’s lying or incredibly naïve.  The system of white supremacy is a global system.  I find it hard to believe that color is not an issue in the Cayman Islands. The reality is she benefits from being biracial.  It’s one the main reasons  she probably got the part on Empire.  She benefits from not being “too black” so to speak.  She has that exotic look that many producers are looking for.  And she’s not the only one who is capitalizing off of the erasure of black women. It seems every time I turn on the television there seems to be a biracial/mixed race woman staring at me. I see them in commercials,sitcoms,reality shows and dramas. They are all over social media like Facebook,Instagram and Twitter.  Many are trying to be models or break into acting.   And many are becoming famous in the process. Of course they are everywhere because the media wants us to believe they are a better version of black people.  If they have light eyes,white features,light skin and long straight hair…they are deemed worthy of being called beautiful.  Yes there are some attractive biracial women.  I went to school with some in college and I have many co-workers that are biracial.  They have always been around me. Even as a kid in grade school.  Some of them got picked on by the black girls and I never understood it.  But as I got older it makes more sense.  The black girls never felt beautiful in a white racist society.  So I guess they saw the light skinned mixed girls with light eyes and long hair and felt jealous.  And I have heard many biracial women talk about people believing they are all conceited and vain.  Of course they are not all this way.  But I can see why many biracial women would believe they are the cream of the crop.  The white controlled media helps to push this myth.

The media reinforces the belief that they are better because they are usually not dark skinned and more African looking.  This video above hits on a great point about black women stepping up and not letting biracial women steal their shine.  I totally agree with her in the video.  I have seen some pretty biracial women but they are not any prettier than black women.  And many are playing in roles as the wives and girlfriends of black men.  Many times the fact that they are biracial is never even brought up at all.  Some of you may not be aware that  they are biracial. There’s been an abundance of them lately.

Tessa

In the film Creed,biracial actress Tessa Thompson played the girlfriend of Michael B. Jordan. Tessa also was in the horrible film Dear White People. That film could’ve been so much better.

Amber

Biracial actress Amber Stevens plays a girlfriend on the sitcom The Carmichael Show. In real life Amber is married to a white guy…but I digress.

Amandla

Teenage actress Amandla Stenberg is biracial.  She also recently came out as bisexual. Gay agenda being pushed?? You decide.

Westbrooks

BET is poison for black minds anyway. But they have a reality show called The Westbrooks.  It’s a reality show about a bunch of biracial Instagram “stars”. It follows them around during their daily lives. Yes…more mind pollution.

Yara

Teenage actress Yara Shahidi is half black and half Iranian.  She is on the buffoonish sitcom Blackish.

JurneeThis is a picture from the upcoming series Underground. It stars actress Jurnee Smollett Bell. She has a Jewish father and black mother. On a side note, aren’t you tired of the same old slave narrative? White Hollywood always has to remind us of our slave past.

Sharon

Actress Sharon Leal is half black and half Filipino. As you can see they are not always half black/half white. Sometimes they will be part Asian or Hispanic as well. But of course she always plays just a “black” woman.

Gugu

Actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw is half black/half white. She has become very popular the last few years.  She’s been on a lot of magazine covers. Some critics say she is the “new Halle Berry”.  Really??  Where is the new Cicely Tyson?  The new Angela Bassett? The new Lauryn Hill??  Hollywood isn’t looking for those type anymore. They don’t want too many dark skinned,full lipped,African textured haired women in Hollywood.  The dark skinned authentic African looking woman must be put in the back so that the mixed race/biracial woman can shine as her rightful replacement.  The biracial women are closer to white so they are looked at as a better representation of blackness.

"Eclipsed" Opening Night

Over the last couple of years more African looking women have been getting more press.  Most recently actresses like Lupita Nyongo and Danai Gurira(pictured above),Gabrielle Union,Viola Davis and Tika Sumpter have gotten more roles on television and film.  But there is still a large abundance of biracial/mixed women all over the media.  They are still usually the women seen as desirable in films.  And mostly play the wives and girlfriends to black men.  I think Hollywood is very afraid the dark skinned African looking woman.  They are doing their best to suppress her beauty.  They feel a woman  who actually looks like an authentic African is a threat to the European ideal beauty standard. This is what the racist white media really fear.  They want to see someone who is lighter skinned,light colored eyes and looks like they might have one white parent. This is why you see more women who look like Alicia Keys than Luptia Nyongo.  But the reality is we need more Lupita’s. I want black women to embrace their beauty.  And ignore the lies of the media.  You are beautiful without having to be watered down.  And you don’t need a weave or be mixed.  You are beautiful without any European additives. You are the Original Mother of the planet. You are the TRUE standard of beauty!  Do not let anyone tell you different.

Nappy Hair is…Hair of The Gods!

Whippa

Epidemically around the world, hundreds of millions of Nappy People are afflicted with full-blown AANS, ­”Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome.” While no nappy person is born with it, they acquire it from their parents and family. AANS victims assault their hair with scorching metal combs and grease, frying each nappy strand until it is straight, to imitate the straight limp hair and hairstyles of Caucasians. In the process, some burn their hair and scalps. Others assault their hair with “chemical relaxers” (sodium or calcium hydroxide) which are so dangerous and poisonous that it burns the scalp shortly after applied, causing blisters and even permanent scalp and hair damage if left on too long or used too often. Additionally, chemicals from these relaxers are absorbed into the bloodstream; they are carcinogenic and can even cause birth defects. And since nappy hair keeps growing out as nappy as ever, the assault must be periodically repeated to maintain artificial straightness. Thus the hair is repeatedly damaged, forced to be what it is not, forced with “lye,” to lie by lying straight. The scalps attached are likewise repeatedly damaged, by exposure to, and absorption of applied poisons.

But the worse damage appears to go unnoticed or even unacknowledged since this has become accepted “normal” behavior; this is the damage to the psyches which own the scalps. This psychological damage is “Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome,” a form of self-rejection and self-hatred. The outward manifestation of this inner dis-ease is the War on Nappy Hair. AANS perpetuates and holds this war in place. The War on Nappy Hair was taken to such extremes, that in some Caribbean islands during the 1980s, not only was it illegal for Blacks to have locked hair, but if they dared display it in public, they could be arrested or even shot and killed on sight by the police! ­who were Black themselves! And nappy foreigners sporting dredlocks, attempting to visit these areas, were detained at airports and not permitted to stay in the country unless they wore wigs or hats to hide their locks.

AANS is rampant among the Nappy
only in Euro-centered, Euro-imitative societies

This means practically the whole world. Thus around the world, Nappy People have been successfully conditioned by their European colonizers to reject or scorn everything that makes them unique as Afrikan people; their sable skin of varying beautiful hues, full sensuous lips, broad noses, Afrikan culture, Afrikan names, and their divine nappy hair -spiraling hair expressing the divine Spiral Principle of Creation. The dictionary (like everything in these societies) promotes AANS by demeaning key words which commonly relate to Afrikan people. Example: “kinky,” like the word “black,” is associated with undesirable characteristics. By the same token, key words commonly relating to white people are elevated, thus “straight,” like the word “white,” is associated with desirable characteristics. Reflecting this attitude, the literature in the boxes of “chemical hair relaxers” refer to straighter hair as “fine,” and nappiest hair as “coarse.”

While it is mainly women that show the visible evidence of AANS, nappy men are just as afflicted; their compliments and attention seem to favor women wearing straightened hair; or perhaps they have little choice since AANS-afflicted women are everywhere. They are the overwhelming majority. AANS is also evident with Nappy Men today, though not as rampant as it was from the early 1900s to the 1970s.

It’s hard work to keep all that nappy hair straight. It’s time consuming as well, wasting countless hours that can be productively used in nurturing self-knowledge and self-respect. For who will respect you if you don’t respect yourself? If 90% of whites were always perming up their straight hair to imitate kinky hair, this would clearly broadcast the statement that they don’t like themselves (self-hatred); and are rejecting part of themselves. Furthermore, keeping nappy hair straight is COSTLY. In America alone, Black people annually spend billions, that’s right ­billions of dollars on Black hair care at a time when Black colleges, businesses and organizations are facing financial ruin.1 This stands as a shameful witness to the success of the campaign to turn Afrikans against their own natural traits and thus against themselves.

Furthermore, AANS damaged hair is probably destroyed in its ability to transmit energy or be antennae. Instead of tuning into higher vibrations, such enslaved, maligned hair probably tunes into lower energies or likely, no energy at all, since it is cooked, hence dead.

The good news is that there is increasing evidence
that many among the Nappy are healing from
AANS;

they are accepting and loving their natural spiral-hair, particularly as they awaken to knowledge of their true history, true culture, and true selves, ­and reject the false, anti-Afrikan history taught to them in anti-Afrikan school systems established by anti-Afrikan people. Fortunately, AANS and its outward symptoms are not permanent. As fresh new virgin hair grow out of those poisoned scalps, so can AANS exit forever.

Dredlocks were formerly abhorred by Nappy Americans.

The term itself is derived from “dread,” for locked hair was considered “dreadful” ! British soldiers coined the term “dreadlocks” during Jamaica’s colonial period, from the soldiers’ attempts to oppress the Afrikan Maroons who revolted against slavery. Now, not only is locked hair accepted, it’s even fashionable. In fact, people desiring instant long locks can now buy pre-made locks of any length or thickness, made from human hair. Thus a day is surely comin’ when Blacks stop regarding nappy hair as “bad hair,” and straighter hair as “good hair.” They will have completely thrown off the negative racist conditioning causing them to imitate their colonizers at the expense of their self respect. As a result, Acquired Anti-Nappy Syndrome will be healed. Manufacturers of hot combs and relaxers will go out of business. And Nappy People will end the War on their Nappy Hair. Once more they will esteem their precious Nappy Hair as the ancients did, ­as the spiraling “Hair of the Gods.
