It seems that comedian George Lopez has caused quite an uproar recently. Earlier this week he was doing a comedy show in Phoenix,Arizona and offended a woman in the audience. The controversy started when Lopez was telling a joke. During the routine Lopez said :
“There are only two rules in a Latino family. Don’t marry somebody black and don’t park in front of our house.”
Apparently there was a biracial woman in the audience that got upset. From what I hear she was black/Mexican. And gave Lopez the middle finger. Then Lopez began to insult her using profanity. Lopez told her:
Sit your f—king a— down! Sit your f—king a— down! I’m talking b—h,” said Lopez, while the audience cheered. “You paid to see a show, sit you’re a– down. You can’t take a joke, then you’re in the wrong motherf—king place. Sit your a— down or get the f—k out of here.”
Why is this shocking to black people? Don’t we already know many Hispanics don’t like black people? This goes for many Mexicans,Cubans,Dominicans and Puerto Ricans. Yeah I know there are blacks in many Latin countries. But you know who I’m talking about. I’m talking about those European latinos. These people worship whiteness. They will work with you in the workplace but most don’t like their children marrying black people. Most of them have a strong anti-black sentiment. That’s why the mostly Hispanic audience laughed at the joke. Lopez didn’t say don’t marry a white person. Why not?? It’s because most the Mexican audience love white people. If you look at Mexicans they look closer to white than black for sure. But see I have a different take on it. I’m not upset at him because he only told the truth. None of these Hispanic groups want their sons or daughters marrying black people. I think most of them hate our dark skin and African(nappy) textured hair. They see blacks as inferior and don’t want to mix with us. Some Mexicans even disown their sons and daughters for marrying blacks. It’s only you brain dead negroes who hate yourself that are offended. Why do we want to be accepted by those that hate us? Why can’t we love ourselves? I’m not offended because I already knew this. I knew black guys in high school that dated Mexican girls. Some of the guys told me they weren’t allowed in their girlfriend’s house. Either the Mexican father didn’t approve or the mother. Sometimes it was both. Black people need some self love and black pride. Then you wouldn’t be offended by the jokes from some ugly pizza-faced washed up comedian. I don’t want mixed babies so I don’t gave a damn if he wants me in his family. I remember when he had his talk show a few years ago. He did a DNA test and found out he was 55 % European,41% Native American and 4% African. I don’t trust most of those DNA tests anyway. But even if it’s true it shows he is more European than anything else. So maybe that’s why many of these so-called Latinos hate black people. They are mostly European so what would you expect? Being white and anti-black goes hand in hand. I keep trying to tell black people that these “people of color” are extremely anti-black. Everyone that has some melanin is not your friend. Don’t be fooled because someone has brown skin. This goes for Hispanics and brown-skinned Indians as well.. As a side note,I actually met Lopez about fifteen years ago at a mall. He was there promoting a radio show he used to host. He really is an ugly looking mestizo in person.
Look at this pic(above) of Lopez. Dressing in drag??? Not only does he have a problem with black people but I guess he’s an undercover homosexual as well. These latinos are funny to me. Lopez says he hates Donald Trump because Trump is a racist towards Mexicans. Yet Lopez has the same racist attitude towards blacks. Blacks haven’t done anything to Mexicans. We never had a war with them. We never had them as slaves or colonized their land. So why do they hate us? Why do all these racial groups hate on black people? Sounds kind of hypocritical to me. Maybe it’s just racial pride. Some people want to preserve their race and culture. I can respect that since I’m the same way. I love being black and I love my African culture. I don’t want to mix with them anyway. But I just don’t like the fact that all these races use black people as a punching bag. Everyone likes to shit on us! And I’m really getting tired of it. Trump wants to build a wall to keep the Mexicans out. I used to be against this idea. Now it’s starting to sound like a good idea. The only problem I have with the wall is I keep asking myself…is it to keep the Mexicans out? Or to keep us in? Anyway let me know your thoughts on Lopez. Was he right? Were you offended? Or was racism expressed by Hispanics something you already knew?

The film The Perfect Match comes out today. I saw the trailer for this so-called “black romantic comedy” last week. It stars Terrence J,Cassie Ventura,Lauren London,Paula Patton,Dascha Polanco and Donald Faison. It looks like your typical romantic comedy Hollywood usually gives us. The acting is not very good and we’ve seen this storyline countless times before. But that’s not my problem with the film.
What’s very disturbing is this film is being pushed in the urban(black)markets. It’s been all over BET,TV One and many black radio stations. I found this disturbing because all the main women in the film are biracial women. All the women that are supposed to be desirable are mixed/biracial women. The main love interest is played by actress/singer Cassie Ventura. She’s most known for being music producer Sean Combs on again/off again girlfriend. She’s not that great of a singer to begin with so I guess she wants to take a chance at acting. Apparently she’s not that great of an actress either. But Cassie is not even a black woman. Her father is Filipino. And her mother is Black and Mexican. Then there’s actress Lauren London. Who is most know from the film ATL(2006). She also is know for having a baby with wannabe gangster rapper Lil Wayne. Does that make her baby mama number 5 or 6? Who knows? Any Lauren’s father is a Jewish man and her mother is black. And actress Dascho Polanco is a mixed race Dominican woman. This is the same old promotion of the “exotic mixed race” woman. Once again we see the elimination of the dark-skinned African looking woman. They do this over and over again. How can you have a “black film” with no women that LOOK black? This is another slap in the face to black women! And another example of whitewashing the black woman’s image. I’ve covered this topic before a few months ago.
And this issue of pushing biracial woman as a better alternative to black woman is disgusting. It’s an insult to all the beautiful dark skinned sistas out there. But this promotion of biracial/whitewashing of black women has been on an upswing the last few years.
But nothing is more insulting than the upcoming Nina Simone biopic. The director of the film cast Zoe Saldana as Nina. This was an insult right from the start. Zoe Saldana has a Dominican father and Puerto rican mother. Her biography says she also has Hatian and Lebanese roots. But Nina Simone was unapologetically black. She was a dark skinned woman with full lips and African textured hair. All her life Nina was called ugly and unattractive because she looked African. Saldana can’t relate to that. She may be of African descent but her life is not a reflection of what Nina endured. The way Nina was treated was part of her music. It was the embodiment of who she was as a black woman. Also the family of Simone has denounced the film and were not involved. If Saldana had any integrity she would’ve turned this film down. The put dark makeup on her and gave her a fake nose. What the hell??I know she wanted a paycheck but this role is horrible for her. She is not right for this role. Why not just hire a dark skinned actress who can also sing? Why not Lauryn Hill or India Arie? Either one of them would’ve been better choices in my opinion. And I’m sure Simone would not approve of this. This is nothing but a modern day blackface minstrel!
This is an interesting video. It’s a few black actresses in Hollywood giving their opinion on Zoe Saldana playing Nina Simone. Most of them gave politically correct answers. You can tell that they were very uncomfortable not wanting to admit that a more black looking woman should’ve gotten the role. Although actress Sheryl Lee Ralph was probably the most honest.
This casting of biracial/mixed has been going on for quite awhile. Biracial actress Carmen Ejogo was cast as Coretta Scott King twice. Once in the film Boycott(2001) and the film Selma(2014).
In the film Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter(2012)biracial actress Jacqueline Fleming played black hero Harriet Tubman. Fleming looks nothing like Tubman at ALL!! This was an insult to our great abolitionist hero! This is an attack on the African looking woman and the destruction of her image. Some may think this is a small issue. But I disagree totally. The media is blatantly whitewashing the image of black women on purpose.
And in may cases they will lighten the skin of an actress on a magazine cover. As in the case of Lupita Nyong’o on the cover of Dazed & Confused…among others.
This whitewashing has to STOP! This is a disgrace to all African women. And I want sistas to know that there are millions of brothers that love and support you. I have talked to black men who have told me that they reject this whitewashing of Hollywood. They love their sistas and reject this false image the media throws at us. So sistas stand tall and proud! You do not have to be mixed and biracial to be beautiful. You are beautiful just the way you are. Much love to you…and stay strong. ❤
