When I saw this I couldn’t stop laughing.lol
I remember when I saw this cover(above) of Ebony magazine back in 2008. It was when Barack Obama was running for President. I remember hearing people say Obama looked so cool in his sunglasses. And I noticed that over the past eight years that there were more biracial men in the media. There has always been biracial men in the spotlight. But there seems to be more right now. I have also seen many more biracial women in the media over the last few years. I will cover biracial women in part three. That is a an even bigger issue in my opinion. But I did want to cover some of the biracial men that seemed to be getting a lot more press in recent years. And what does it mean for black men? Are they the new and improved black men? Or do they represent a “new white man’? I think Obama helped to bring interracial unions and biracial people more acceptance in American culture. And worldwide for that matter. I have seen more biracial men in sports,television and films.
Back in the early 90’s Lenny Kravitz was one of the biggest rock stars. His mother is black,father is Jewish.
Actor Vin Diesel is biracial as well. Although he mostly plays racially ambiguous roles. He never really plays a “black” man though.
Actor Shemar Moore has become a sex symbol among many black women. The picture(above) is of him and his white mother. He first gained fame on the soap opera The Young and The Restless. I remember ten years ago he was seen at a gay beach in Hawaii. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions about his sexuality.
This is biracial actor Boris Kodjoe. His mother is a German white woman. I know many black women who have told me is their ideal man. Although this is not a good picture. It leaves him looking very “suspect”.
Actor Dwayne Johnson has become a huge star over the last eight years. He first became famous as a WWE wrestler known as The Rock. And has become a sex symbol in his transition from wrestler to actor. Although he is not a mulatto since he has a black father and Samoan mother. Much like actor Vin Diesel he plays racially ambiguous roles. And is rarely paired with black women in films. But he still remains popular among many black women.
Biracial actor Jesse Williams caused quite a stir last year at the BET Awards. The Grey’s Anatomy star gave a passionate speech about police brutality last year. And many black people quickly gave the mixed race man his “black card”.
The picture(above) is of Trevor Noah. The comedian/actor is the host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. he is pictured with his girlfriend,model Jordyn Taylor. She is racially mixed so I guess the paring his fitting. Noah is a media darling because of his left-leaning liberal views. Although I don’t find him that funny.
This is actor Jussie Smollett. Most people know him from the hit drama Empire. He plays a homosexual on the show. Which is fitting since he’s a homosexual in real life as well. He’s pictured her with his sister actress Jurnee. They have a black mother and white father. This picture is quite interesting. What’s with the “black power” fist? What message are they sending? Is that you can be conscious,biracial,pro-black and gay all at the same time? Good lord….what world am I living in? God help us.
Of course we can’t discuss biracial people without mentioning Canadian rapper Drake. Drake has become one of rap music’s biggest stars in the last eight years or so. He started as a child actor and late did underground mixtapes as a rapper. His mother(pictured above) is Jewish and his father is black. I can’t help but to think that having those Jewish connections helped him in the industry. Also according to Halakha(Jewish law) a Jew must be born to a Jewish mother. Accepting the principles and practices of Judaism doesn’t make a person a Jew. So even with a black father technically…. Drake is a Jew.
Rapper J. Cole(with mother) has seen his popularity rise in recent years. He has gotten praise from many rap fans because of his socially conscious lyrics.
The picture(above) is of r&b/pop singer Miguel and his Mexican father. Miguel became popular when his debut cd came out in 2010. His music style is a mix of funk,r&b and elements of rock. Many music critics have compared him to the late pop icon Prince.
Retired baseball player Derek Jeter was one of the most well know athletes while playing for the New York Yankees. Here is Jeter pictured with his parents and sister Sharlee.
NBA veteran Tony Parker has played for the San Antonio Spurs for over fifteen years. And he has won four NBA championships. He has a black father and white mother. He has been one of the most well known biracial athletes over the last ten years.
Of course what list would be complete with biracial NFL star Colin Kaepernick. I recently heard that he will now stand for the pledge of allegiance. Why the change of heart? I guess all the hype is over now. It helped to cause some more racial tension and get people talking. But I guess that time has passed…so it’s back to football! That is if any team picks him up.
This is racecar driver Lewis Hamilton pictured with his white mother. He was born and raised in the United Kingdom. His first racecar win was the Canadian Grand prix in 2007. His popularity has really grown over the last ten years.
Chicago Bulls basketball player Joakim Noah has a white mother and black father. He’s very popular with the Chicago fans. This pic(above) he is with his mother and sister Yelena.
This picture(above) is of NBA players Aaron Gordon and Zach Lavine. Gordon plays for the Orlando Magic and Lavine plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Last year during the 2016 NBA All Star weekend these two were the finalists in the Slam Dunk contest. It was close but Lavine ending up winning the contest. I just thought it was interesting that the last two finalists were both biracial men. I thought it was odd. Are they going to be the face of the NBA? Much like Drake is the face of rap music? Or how Obama was the face of the nation. Hmmmm…something to think about.
NBA star Matt Barnes(with mother) has always been a headache for the NBA. He has a really bad temper and needs to seek anger management. He has played for the LA Clippers,New York Knicks,Orlando Magic,LA Lakers and Golden State Warriors. He gets moved around a lot because of his temper tantrums and bad attitude.
The black man in the pic(above) is Lavar Ball. Ball is a retired football player. He was a practice squad member for the New York Jets and Carolina Panthers. He and his white wife Tina have three sons,Lonzo,LiAngelo and LaMelo. They have become a huge media sensation in the basketball world. They have all appeared on ESPN. They all played for Chino Hills high school. The oldest son Lonzo played one year at UCLA. He is already said he is entering the NBA draft. He has groomed his mulatto sons from birth to be basketball players.
NFL rookie Dak Prescott(with mother) has made quite an impression lately. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback seems to be fitting in well as the new face of the team. I know there are a lot racist rednecks in Dallas. I know because I’ve been to Texas before. But I’m sure they’ll accept him with open arms. Just as long as their biracial quarterback is winning games for them.
NBA star Blake Griffin(with father and mother) has been a big asset for the Los Angeles Clippers. He has been playing with the Clippers since 2009. His skills have improved over the last few years. I remember when he was in the Slam Dunk contest back in 2011. I saw some video of the dunk contest on YouTube. There were some white guys making comments on the video. Some were saying that Griffin should be considered a white man. I guess they wanted to see a non-black person win so bad they were willing to accept a biracial man as white. But this got me thinking. Do they want biracial men to be the “new blacks”? Do they want to replace African men with biracial men? Is it easier for whites to accept those that have a white parent? After all,biracials are in closer proximity to whiteness than someone with two black parents. I personally believe this is psychological warfare. And many of us don’t understand this tactic very much. There are many ways to attack a person. It doesn’t always have to be physical. Attacking a persons mind can be just as effective. Psychological warfare is a form of propaganda or a threat. It’s a psychological technique to mislead,demoralize,intimidate or influence the thinking or the behavior of an enemy. This is what is being done to black people. This is all being done on purpose. The white/jewish controlled media is purposely putting more biracial men to the forefront. They are doing this to confuse the minds of black people. This all goes against the collective best interest of black people. It also promotes the idea that interracial sex is a good thing. They are giving us the false belief that being half-black is better than having two black parents. This is just another way to promote black inferiority and degrade black genetics. This all helps to reinforce the idea that being dark skinned and having African features is ugly and unwanted.
We better have a clear definition on who is black and who is NOT. Otherwise we’ll keep getting melanin recessive imposters like Shaun King(pic above). This white activist is going around telling people he’s a black man when he has already been exposed as a white man by his white mother and father. This is insulting to all black people. But this is what happens when you let everyone claim blackness. We got to put an end to this. This has really gotten out of hand. So what do you think? Am I on to something? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Since the abduction of black girls recently in Washington DC,people have asked me what happened to them. A subject that keeps coming up is organ harvesting. I think this is serious problem for black people. I think there are very powerful people kidnapping black children and adults for their organs. This is a very scary issue that some people don’t want to touch on. Even in the horror film Get Out is shows black people being abducted and being used for their organs. Not too many realize that Hollywood was showing what they already do. Are black people paying attention? I hope so. Art imitates life right? And many people aren’t aware that this is a global problem. It is really big on the black market. It’s not only big in America but also India,China and Jamaica. The video(above) is a Jamaican doctor. He explains how much of a problem it is in Jamaica. Here’s an article from the Kulture Kritic about organ harvesting:
In a 2006 article, USA today estimated that more than 16,800 families had been represented in lawsuits that claimed that their loved ones’ body parts had been stolen for profit over the course of the previous 19 years. The estimate was based on data from federal and local investigators, lawsuits and public organizations such as medical universities.
The lucrative business of illegally harvesting and selling organs and body parts without consent does not appear to have slowed down since then. The World Health Organization estimates that as many as 7,000 kidneys are illegally obtained by traffickers every year. Other organs such as hearts, lungs and livers and human tissue such as bones, tendons and other body parts are illegally harvested all over the world for transplant, research and education.
The illegal harvesting of organs and tissue from Black men, woman, and children who are kidnapped and murdered is not covered widely in the mainstream media and is many times written off has more of a conspiracy theory than fact. However, there are several cases that prove that illegal organ harvesting from Black people is happening, not just in other countries, but right here in the United States.
In 2008, former dentist Michael Mastromarino was indicted for stealing more than 1,000 bodies in order to sell body parts and tissue. Michael Brown of Murrieta, California kept bodies that he was supposed to have cremated and sold them for more than $400,000. These men and others who participate in the illegal harvesting and trade of body tissue leave many families without answers about what happened to their family members organs and/or body parts.
The illegal harvesting of organs from Black people seems to be more sinister due to the fact that organs must be harvested not long after death for them to be viable for transplant. This leads to cases where families have trouble finding answers about the mysterious circumstances their family members died under.
One such case is that of 14-year-old Jason Smith in Eros, Louisiana whose death was ruled an accidental drowning despite the fact that his organs were missing when his body was found. A case that received more attention but did not provide the family with any more answers is that of 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson whose death was initially ruled to have been the result of accidental suffocation. A second autopsy yielded a different conclusion, but when the second autopsy was performed, his body had been stuffed with newspaper, and his organs were missing.
More recently in September 2014, 24-year-old Ryan Singleton’s body was found in a California desert with his eyes, heart, lung, liver and kidneys missing. Singleton’s mother believes that his organs were stolen because the rest of his body remained in tact, meaning the organs had not been eaten by animals.
As the disparity between supply and demand for organs continues to be insurmountable, authorities are considering rewriting the 1984 law that bans the sale of organs, but in the meantime, the World Health Organization estimates that a human organ is illegally sold every hour, and families all over the world are left without answers about their loved ones death’s and burials.
Here’s some information taken from Selfuni’s WordPress blog:
64,000 African-Americans girls are reported missing, but nobody’s looking for them. Why?
Despite representing 12.85% of the population, black Americans accounted for nearly 226,000 — or 34% — of all missing persons reported in 2012. According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center, the comparison with other racial groups is unfavorable: Whites and Hispanics are a combined 80.1% of the population, but account for 60% of missing persons.
This is especially troubling when you break down the numbers by age. Black and Missing reports that 37% of missing minors and 28.2% of missing adults in 2013 were black. No fewer than 270,000 minorities have gone missing since 2010, 135,000 of whom were black and 64,000 were black women, according to the Atlanta Black Star.
Essence points to a 2010 report titled “Missing Children in National News Coverage,” which found that while black children accounted for 33.2% of missing children that year, the media exposure rate was an unimpressive 19.5%. While black men go missing at statistically higher rates, coverage of black female disappearances is particularly telling in light of the attention similar stories get when white women are involved.
“In the field, I’ve seen a majority of black missing children classified as runaways, who don’t get Amber Alerts.”
No way the same US government and media that gave so much attention to 2-300 Nigerian girls would ignore 64,000(!) its own, unless there was a reason. The most likely reason is organ harvesting, and the skin is the body’s biggest organ. Considering America’s dark history of medical exploitation of Blacks, this isn’t as far-fetched as it seems at first.
First of all, there’s a long history of medical research using unwitting/unwilling African-American women for medical experiments:
on the 19th century medical plantation—a locality spatially separate from the agricultural plantation—black women’s bodies were imagined as the ideal test subjects of research and innovation within what became modern gynecology.
That trend has continued from Emancipation until today, at the GOVERNMENT level: ”
throughout their long history in the USA, African-Americans have been secretly used as guinea pigs for medical experimentation by various American governments
It’s a MARKET. The medical industry cannot advance without unwitting/unwilling Black subjects. Cells secretly harvested, and later cultivated from a Black woman are the source of ALL cells used for medical research- vaccines, cloning, testing, etc. “This represented an enormous boon to medical and biological research” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks
It seems there’s a big uproar over R&B singer/actor Tyrese Gibson. Apparently he recently announced that last month he secretly got married. No big deal right?? Well in his Instagram post he said he had found his “black queen”. But the picture of his wife proves otherwise. His wife is Samantha Lee Schwalenberg. She doesn’t look very black to me. This is not a light-skinned black woman. Where are the African features? The less African features you have makes you less black. That’s why every racial group has race classifications to tell themselves apart from others. In 2014, Lee got a certification from the Professional Bartending School of Atlanta. Her certification is in mixology and bartendering.The newly married Mrs. Gibson attended the University of Georgia, and once even competed in the Miss Latin UGA pageant in 2011. Which is fitting since she looks more Latin than African.On her Facebook page, Lee regularly posts long, thoughtful posts about the role of religion and God in her life. In August 2015, Lee wrote about life and death saying, “I think the Devil does a pretty good job of convincing us that there’s nothing after death…that this life, that’s it. I am writing you all to tell you that I know that it doesn’t stop there. We should not fear death, just like we should not fear birth.”Lee is from Dayton, New Jersey, and according to her Facebook page, she now lives in Athens, Georgia. People magazine had reported that Tyrese and Lee were first seen out together at the 33rd Annual UNCF Mayors Masked Ball at Atlanta Marriott Marquis in Atlanta in December 2016.
I could really care less who Tyrese married. The problem is he called her his black queen. According to Tyrese her racial makeup is Ecuadorian,Jamaican and African-American. Tyrese forgot to mention she is also part white. So he should’ve said his “mixed queen”. Or at least his biracial queen. But to call her black is insulting to black women and black people in general.
This is a picture of Lee with her father. He looks pretty white to me. She looks like an Arab or a Hispanic woman.
This is a picture of her mother and brother on the far right. Supposedly the mother is Hispanic. So I guess the mother is an Afro-Latina with some Jamaican ancestry. The truth of the matter is she is a biracial woman that could easily pass for a Mexican,Cuban or Arab. This is the problem with the silly one-drop rule. This is another example of whitewashing the African image. Tyrese knows he’s wrong for this. And I’m glad that black men and women are calling him out on it. This was some ignorant self-hating coonish behavior on the part of Tyrese. But this is what happens when you make being black all inclusive. Am I wrong? Has this biracial stuff gone too far? Is Tyrese delusional? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
