The Interracial Madness-Sexuality in TV and Film(Part 2 of 3)

Film historian Charles Woods talks in this video about interracial sex/love in Hollywood films. Woods says in Hollywood there is always a “3D Effect” when interracial relationships are involved.  The three D’s are denigration,devastation, and destruction. Woods is exactly right.  This is something they do in Hollywood films a lot.  Another common theme is the black men and women are always separated from each other. They do this by not casting another black person of the opposite sex.

The Hays Code.jpg

Back in 1930 the Motion Picture Code was created. It was called The Hays Code. The picture(above) is some of the guidelines. Of course you can see that number four is no miscegenation(race mixing). Naturally times have changed so it’s been revised.  The powers that be realize that promoting interracial sex can be used against black people.  So of course the list seems very outdated at the present time.  Here’s the complete list:

Scandal

Of course we are all familiar with the show Scandal. Scandal has beautiful actress Kerry Washington caught in a white boy-love triangle. And even when an episode had her former black boyfriend show up…conveniently they could not see eye to eye.  What’s amazing is that the show is written by Shonda Rhimes…a black woman no less.  But of course Shonda has to be down with the interracial propaganda if she wants to continue working in Hollywood.

Pilot

On the hit show Supergirl,actor Mehcad Brooks is caught in a white girl-love triangle.  Supergirl is played by actress Melissa Benoist. Brooks plays James Olsen who has a girlfriend  played by Jenna Tatum. But he has feelings for Supergirl also. Where are the black actresses on the show?  There are….ZERO! No surprise right?  This way the white girls have no competition with black women.

Candice

In keeping with the superhero theme,there is also the show The Flash.  Where we find actress Candice Patton. She’s biracial but never mind that at the moment.  She plays a character who has a white boyfiend. But she is feeling conflicted because she’s starting to have feelings for another man.  YEP! You guessed it..another white guy.  Who writes this stuff??

Jungle Fever

One of the first films I remember that caused a lot of controversy was Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever(1991).  It starred Wesley Snipes who cheated on his biracial wife with a white woman.  Average looking actress Annabella Sciorra  played the mistress. It was a big deal I guess at the time because the story ine centered on race a lot. But nowadays the racial issue is hardly brought up. I guess this is an attempt to normalize interracial relationships by ignoring race altogether.

A Bronx Tale

The film A Bronx Tale(1993) had an interracial relationship starring Taral Hicks. Her character falls in love with an Italian boy played by Lillo Brancato. There were a lot of these type of these films in the nineties.

Corrina

The film Corrina,Corrina(1994) starred Whoopi Goldberg who falls for actor Ray Liotta. This was just one of many films where Whoopi is paired with a white man. If you include this film,Jungle Fever,A Bronx Tale and The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston…the nineties had a lot of interracial films.  I think the nineties was the decade they really started pushing much of the interracial propaganda.

The film Save the Last Dance(2001) starred actor Sean Patrick  Thomas and actress Julia Stiles. It was about an out of town white teenage girl coping with the death of her mother. She and her father move to Chicago and she falls in love with a black teenager(Thomas). The film was a huge hit back in 2001. It grossed over $130 million.  I think that’s one of the reasons we saw such an increase of these type of relationships in films.

In the drama film O(2001)  Julia Stiles stars again in an interracial relationship.  This time with actor Mekhi Phifer.  The film is a loose modern adaption of William Shakespeare’s Othello.  This film also perpetuates a lot of negative stereotypes.  In the clip(above)  Phifer’s character has sex with her then when she says stop…he continues anyway.  So basically he rapes her.  Then if that wasn’t enough he chokes her to death afterwards.  So we have a black man that is a rapist and murderder.   That’s racist Hollywood for you.

Trey Songz

They even have interracial couples in horror films. In the film Texas Chainsaw 3D(2103),singer /actor Trey Songz was in a sex scene with actress Tania Raymonde. Trey is a horrible actor and should stick to singing.  The film was a total waste of a hour and thirty minutes. I guess the message of the film was just because a crazy lunatic with a chainsaw is killing people…doesn’t mean you can’t find the time to get your “swirl on”.

Blair .jpg

Actor Blair Underwood played the boyfriend of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on the sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine(2006-2010).  I remember meeting Underwood over fifteen years ago at a black rodeo in Burbank,Ca.  Underwood  was a real cool brother.  I remember there a lot of black women around him trying to get his attention. I know many black women see him as a sex symbol.  I’m sure many of them are not too fond of seeing him in these roles with non black women.

Taye Diggs

On the drama Private Practice(2007-2013) Taye Diggs was a relationship with actress Kate Walsh.  I guess Taye is the go to interracial black guy in Hollywood.  Kind of like how Zoe Saldana is always linked with white guys in films.  But it kind of makes sense when you think about it.  Since Taye likes pale-skinned flat assed white girls in real life,it only makes sense that he always gets the phone call for these roles.  And Zoe is married to a white guy in real life too. See the pattern?

 

Joy Bryant

On the television show Parenthood(2010-2015)actress Joy Bryant played the wife to actor Dax Shepard.  Isn’t this a perfect picture?  This is what they want for black people.  This is another way to promote the false belief that race mixing will end racism.  That mixed babies will heal all the wounds.That somehow just having sex with whites will wash away hundreds of years of slavery,rape,lynchings and genocide. I covered this once before.

Part 3 is next!  The conclusion!

 

Black Love Denied: Black Love Redemption(Part 3 of 3)

Film archivist and historian CHARLES WOODS (aka The professor) sat down  to talk about the depiction of Black Love on the silver screen, and share his insight into three films- HALLELUJAH (1927), NOTHING BUT A MAN (1964) and BEYOND THE LIGHTS (2014). He offers a great breakdown on the depiction of black love in Hollywood. It shows that over the years that Hollywood has never been fully comfortable with black people expressing love for one another.  We have to be conscious enough to understand that the negative depictions of us is being done on purpose.

I also like this video above.  It’s a great discussion with black men and black women talking about what is black love.  They are all being very open and honest about what black love means to them.  I think we need to have more discussions like this on  social media as well as in person.  We need safe places where we can discuss things ls.  we are being hammered every day with anti-blackness. Every day we are told by the media that we are not good enough. Or that black people are “less than human”. After what I showed you in part one and two it should be obvious that the racist media wants to keep us fighting one another.  Black self acceptance and black love is a very scary thing to those in power.  This is one of the main reasons they push interracial dating on us so much.  They want us to look at other “options”.  Whether that is dating a white person,asian  person or even someone of the same sex. None of these alternatives is pro-black. They are either anti-life or will not produce black children.  Which is their main goal.

Black Love is a Revolutionary Act

Black Love3

Black Love1...

We can no longer let the media divide us.  We have to realize that we need one another. The Black Man must be open to listen to black women and their pain. As well as black women must be able to listen to the struggles of the black man.  But we must listen with not only our ears but our hearts and without judgement. Stop blaming each other. This is the first step if we want to defeat our common enemy. Here at Kushite Kingdom I’m always talking about uniting and having black pride.  Well if we truly want to unite,bond and grow in our relationships….we must heal. We must bring closure to the anger and pain from the past. We have to do this to end the dysfunction in our community. So that we don’t past this on to the next generation.

This is a great video with Naazir Ra and his beautiful wife Okeba Ra. It’s a  video about Black Love Redemption Day.  Which I think is a better alternative to European inspired Valentine’s Day. I think you’ll really like the video. They make a great point about how love,communication and building a strong black family is what’s most important. Healing one another and working together is the our path to redemption. And I believe that once we do this we can find joy.  And realize that with dedication and discipline we can repair our relationships.  And bring back Black love to our community. This is how we can heal and ultimately find peace.
