Joy Bryant was born in a modest home in The Bronx, New York and as a young woman, was enrolled in an inner-city outreach organization called “A Better Chance,” designed to encourage minority talent. Joy was also blessed with brains as well beauty and remained an excellent student throughout her high school years. As a result, she was awarded a full academic scholarship to Yale University.
While enrolled as a full-time student at Yale, Joy was discovered by a modeling scout from Next Models Management and subsequently pursued a career as a fashion model in Paris. Her slender yet classic beauty got her an exclusive contract with prestigious brand names such as Tommy Hilfiger and the Victoria’s Secret lingerie catalogue.
Joy’s acting debut came about in 2001 in Robert Townsend‘s Carmen: A Hip Hopera (2001). An MTV production, the film also starred Beyoncé Knowles and Mekhi Phifer, along with several hip-hop superstars. After a small role in the Eddie Murphy action comedy Showtime (2002), she made her big breakthrough in Denzel Washington‘s directorial debut, Antwone Fisher. Bryant played Cheryl, the beautiful and supportive girlfriend of Antwone (Derek Luke). In 2003, she co-starred with Jessica Alba in Bille Woodruff‘s romantic drama Honey (2003). That same year, she appeared in Mario Van Peebles‘ _Baadasssss! (2003)_, based on his father Melvin Van Peebles‘ autobiographical novel. Projects for 2004 included the crime drama Three Way (2004) with Gina Gershon.
The year 2005 turned out to be an even better year for the actress. Joy appeared in high-profile films such as The Skeleton Key (2005), London (2005), and Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (2005). Her performances as the sassy Mallory in London (2005) and the strikingly pretty Charlene in Get Rich or Die Tryin’ (2005) were critically acclaimed, and re-enforced her reputation as a versatile actress.
Are Latinas a better alternative to black women? What about Asian women? The video(above) is of two buffoonish black men speaking on their love of Mexican women. I found the video very distasteful and full of self hatred. These two clowns don’t know how foolish they look. At one point in the video the guy says “Every black man’s dream is to be with a Hispanic girl”. Is he serious? Their self hatred is deep! But I see this type of mentality all the time in California. There is a lot of interracial dating/marriage out here. And I am sick of seeing this hatred of blackness. I have co-workers who chase after Latinas and Asian women all the time. These stupid black men love to brag about getting some “hot Latina ass”. It’s really disgusting. And the media helps to push this interracial crap on the minds of black people. The two guys in this video are at least honest,I will give them that. But I cant stand the black coons that try to deny their anti-blackness and hatred for African women. I think many of them seek validation from these women because they don’t value black women. They are self loathing and devalue blackness. And I’ve seen an increase of black men hooking up with Hispanic/Latinas and Asian women over the last ten years. Even many men in the entertainment and sports world.
Who can forget music producer Puff Daddy and actress Jennifer Lopez. I still think she just used him to get more fame and recognition. After she got more notoriety…she dumped him. What a surprise!
Comedian Dave Chappelle with Filipino wife Elaine and children.
NFL player Champ Bailey with wife Mexican booty model Jesikah Maximus. They have one child together.Why are these fools marrying booty models anyway? These women are fake,plastic,materialistic and have no substance. But guys like Bailey don’t care. Just as long as the woman is not black,that’s all that matters. Having children with non-black genetics is very important to these self hating clowns.
This video(above) is very hard to watch. This black man is a damn fool! This clown goes on about how Filipino women wont give him a chance. He says they usually stick to their own race or get with white men. Wow!! What a shock moron!!! We live in a white dominated society so of course most Asian women worship white men. This video is the definition of pathetic. This is a bad look for black men. This man is literally begging other races of women to love him. He must have NO self respect or dignity. No pride what so ever. I can’t believe he would actually show his face . This fool has other videos talking about how beautiful East Indian woman are and how they diss him. Here’s an idea..why not try black women? Why not embrace the beauty of your African women? But this guy is a Hebrew Isrealite and many of them hate African people. I understand that not all Hebrews think that way. But this guy is utterly ridiculous. So he is full of self hatred and is useless to black people. I hope this coon finds himself a non-black woman so he can breed his kind out of existence. The sooner the better.
Actor Derek Luke and Latina wife Sophia.
NFL player Julius Peppers recently had a baby with Cuban girlfriend Claudia Sampedro. She is a Kim Kardashian look alike to me. Which is fitting since she’s one of these Instagram attention whores dying to get fame. I guess Julius was the sucker!!
Films like Honey(2003) promoted black men-Hispanic women hookups. This film starred Jessica Alba and Mekhi Phifer.
On the drama Grey’s Anatomy (2005-2007) actor Isaiah Washington had a romance with Asian actress Sandra Oh. Television shows and films like this push the idea that black men should go for Asian and Hispanic women.
In the Christian drama film,I’m in Love with a Church Girl(2013) actor/rapper Ja Rule plays a drug dealer that falls in love with a church girl. The woman is played by Latina singer/actress Adrienne Bailon. Neither one of them are great actors. The film is really cheesy with bad acting. But it did accomplish two things. It helped promoted the stereotype of black men as drug dealing criminals. But also helped push the interracial agenda that only a non-black woman can make a black man turn his life around for the better.
On the hit drama Power(2014-present) there is an interracial affair going on. The lead actor Omari Hardwick plays Ghost. Ghost is a New York nightclub owner. But he’s living a double life. He is also a drug dealer on the side. His black wife is played by actress Naturi Naughton. But Ghost is having an affair with his mistress Angela. Angela is played by Mexican actress Lena Loren. A black man cheating on his wife with a Hispanic woman. This season he actually leaves his wife for her. What type of message does this send? Not a good one.
This video(above) is the trailer for the film Bazodee(2016). The plot for this film says :
“Anita Ponchouri(Natalie Perera), the dutiful Indian daughter of a deep-in-debt businessman is about to marry a wealthy Londoner when a chance encounter with local singer, Lee de Leon(Machel Montano) sets things askew. In search of a muse, de Leon agrees to perform at the engagement party for both families. Unable to deny their mutual attraction, and with the excitement of Carnival approaching, Anita must now choose between the answer to her family’s financial prayers and the possibility of real love. Set on the vivid, colorful island of Trinidad and pulsing with the sensuous dance rhythms of soca music.” So now Bollywood is jumping on the interracial trend too?? This is laughable. Indian people are very anti-black for the most part. I have had black men tell me they get no play from Indian women. And that’s saying a lot being in California. Since most people out here are down with race mixing. I’ve seen black men with white,Asian,Puerto rican and Mexican women. I may have seen a black man with an Indian woman maybe once ten years ago…haven’t seen one since. The anti-blackness is very strong in Indan culture. Many of them are very dark skinned but still think they’re better than black/African people. It comes from the color caste system they have. That’s why this Caribbean/Bollywood love story is a joke. No Indian man wants to see his daughter with a black man. He would probably disown her on the spot! These type of films give self-hating black men false hope. They see all these films and television shows promoting interracial marriage and makes them think they can get these type of women. And even the sports athletes can get them only because they are rich. But these dumb negroes don’t understand they will be giving that wealth back to a non-black family. We need to see the value in black women. We need to see the value in having black children and stop making mixed babies. The truth is black men don’t need validation from these women. We should be uplifting the beauty of our own women. Only a self hating loser would chase after Asian,Hispanic and Indian women. There’s nothing wrong with wanting validation. We all need it to a certain extent. But validation should come from getting respect from your own family and community. So I hope all the intelligent and proud black men know where I’m coming from. Peace.
There’s another trend going on. The attack on black love is very real. I told you what they’re doing to black women in part one. Now I’ll show what they’re trying to do with brothers. This picture(above) is from the Fox drama Rosewood. It premiered back in September 2015. It stars Morris Chestnut in his first leading role on television. He plays a doctor on the show and he is paired with Puerto Rican actress Jaina Lee Ortiz. She plays a Miami detective. There is a beautiful black actress in the show as well played by Gabrielle Dennis. But she plays the sister to Chestnut’s character. She also plays a lesbian with a white girlfriend no less. Black people playing homosexuals and lesbians is something I’ve covered many times in the past. That’s a whole different subject. But this post is about a trend I’ve noticed a lot in the last twenty years or so. I have seen a steady increase of latina actresses playing the romantic interest to black men in countless films and television shows. Although in Rosewood, Morris and Jaina have not officially “hooked up” they flirt with each other in nearly every episode. It is only a matter of time before they eventually get together.
The first time I can remember seeing this was in the film Money Train. This was way back in 1995. It starred Wesley Snipes and Jennifer Lopez. I remember this because I believe it was the first love scene Lopez ever did.
Then I remember seeing Cuban actress Eva Mendes with Denzel Washington in Training Day(2002). She also played his ex-wife in the film Out of Time. And she also played Will Smith girlfriend in the film Hitch(2005).
In that silly ass comedy Boat Trip(2002),Roselyn Sanchez played the love interest for Cuba Gooding Jr. They had absolutely no chemistry together and the film wasn’t even funny. But I think this is a disturbing trend. I know some people will say that it’s no big deal sense these are “women of color”. But this is nonsense to me. It doesn’t matter if many Puerto Ricans have 15%-20% African ancestry. The fact remains that most of them have over 60% European ancestry. They are mostly white. Theses are the facts! They may speak Spanish or Portuguese but they are not African women. We need more roles showing black love across the board. These Latinas are being used to promote race mixing as a better alternative to black love. It’s also a way to show that Latinas are better for black men. All this “love has no color” crap sounds silly to me! Hollywood is terrified of black men and women loving one another and creating beautiful black babies. They seem to promote anything that can further divide black me and women. I get the feeling that black people loving each other is their biggest fear.
In the film Four Brothers(2005)singer/actor Tyrese was the love interest for Colombian actress Sofia Vergara. I remember thinking they were such an odd pairing when I saw this film. They film was okay as far as action films go. But in the film Tyrese was adopted by an old white woman. And he had three adoptive brothers. Two of them were white guys. One of them played by Mark Wahlberg. It was really silly. You know how Hollywood likes to show blacks who were raised by whites as “decent negroes”. It was truly a waste of film. I wish I could get my money back.
South Beach(2006) was a television drama starring Odette Annable and the late Lee Thompson Young. Annable has a Cuban mother and her father is French/Italian. So that would make her…….white right?
In 2010 there was the television show The Event. It starred Blair Underwood as the President of the United States. The First Lady was played by Puerto Rican actress Lisa Vidal. In the show Underwood’s character’s name was Elias Martinez. He was an Afro-Latin man so I guess that’s why his wife was a Latina right? But why not a more black looking Afro-Latina then? I think you know the answer.
Also in 2010 there was the film Our Family Wedding. It’s about a black man(Lance Gross) marrying a Hispanic woman. The woman is Honduran actress America Ferrera. It’s a comedy about the blending of different races and cultures. This video clip is my favorite scene in the film. It shows the Hispanic grandmother fainting when she sees her grand daughter’s black fiancée. It’s kind of funny but also very realistic. Mainly because this is how many of these old(and young) Hispanic family members truly feel when their daughter/niece/grand daughter is marrying a black man. It’s done in a comical way but underneath is the truth of their anti-blackness. Which runs throughout Hispanic/Latin culture.
Do you recognize this man? That’s John David Washington. The son of legendary actor Denzel Washington. Not sure if many people know that he’s acting on the comedy television series Ballers(2015). He plays a professional football player character named Ricky Jerret. In the series his fiancée is Cuban actress Anabelle Acosta. In his first starring role you would think he would be cast with a black woman. But then again Denzel was paired with Cuban actress Eva Mendes in Training Day. Like father,like son right?
This is a picture from the upcoming comedy Meet The Blacks. It stars comedian Mike Epps and his wife is played by Colombian actress Zulay Henao. Once again the black woman is left out. The black woman in the pic is his daughter. The title of the film is supposed to be a play on words. But it’s insulting because they’re called The Blacks…but the wife isn’t black!! How ridiculous is that??
This is Forest Whitaker with Mexican actress Eva Longoria. They played husband and wife in the film A Dark Truth. It always cracks me up when I see Mexicans and blacks playing lovers in films. Mexican culture has a strong anti-black sentiment. I’ve had Mexican co-workers over the years. They treat me with respect and don’t give me a hard time. They’re cool with you in the workplace but they keep a social distance. Dating them is an entirely different story. I know for a fact that most Mexican men hate seeing their women with black men. They find it very disgusting and think they are better than black men anyway. I even know some that wont even date a Mexican woman if she’s dated black men. That sounds like extreme hatred to me. That sounds like the mentality of a racist white redneck. I’m telling you that most Hispanics/Latinos as a whole don’t like black/African people. Most of them that come from Cuba,Brazil,Mexico,Puerto Rico,Colombia…are raised on white supremacy. They believe that light skin,light colored eyes and straight hair is the beauty ideal. So naturally they will hate black people. Many Latin countries even have a term called “blanqueamiento”. It’s a term many have never heard. Blanqueamiento, or whitening, is a social, political, and economic practice used in many post-colonial countries to `improve the race` (mejorar la raza) towards a supposed ideal of whiteness. The term blanqueamiento is rooted in Latin America and is used more or less synonymous with racial whitening. So you can see where their hatred of dark skin comes from. I know black men who have dated some of these light skinned Latinas and their families usually don’t accept the black man. Since they believe “whitening” the race is better,why would they want to darken their race? They have to think of their children right?
Also just as a side note,many of these Latinas are in these booty model magazines. Don’t get me wrong these magazines are very degrading to women. I used to read them as a young man myself. But I matured and grew out of them. They have these women in very degrading poses,all oiled up with,rubbing their G spot with a come hither look in their eyes. Degrading as they may be, these are still magazines catered towards black men. So why are Latinas on the cover? Why do they have “Latina lovers ” editions? I don’t see black women plastered on the cover of magazines for Hispanic men. This is really pathetic. Black women even take a backseat behind Latinas in magazines geared toward black men. And the black men who are the publishers of these magazines should be ashamed of themselves. These clowns are hyping up other races over black women. Shameful!
This is actress Jessica Alba and Mehki Phifer. This is from the 2003 film Honey. In the film he flirted with her until he won her over. In the film actress/model Joy Bryant plays Alba’s best friend. Joy is a gorgeous black woman..but of course they have Mehki’s character hook up with Alba. Not to mention that Joy is much prettier than Alba by a mile.
Here’s a video from the George Lopez show. This was back in 2010. Lopez did a DNA test on Alba. Her mother is a blonde white woman and her father is a Mexican. The results were not surprising to me. Alba found out she was 87% European. And she seems pretty disappointed about it. I can understand her frustration a bit. She sees herself as a “woman of color” so this was a wake up call for her. I know many people see her as somewhat exotic with dark hair and full lips. I actually saw her in person in 2014 at a social event. She walked right by me. She may not have blonde hair, blue eyes and pale skin but at the end of the day….she’s a white woman. In the film Honey the stylist had her hair permed to give it some curl. This was an attempt to make her appear a bit more “ethnic” because she obviously doesn’t look black. I find this interesting because I remember reading years ago that Honey was a role written for the late r&b singer/actress Aaliyah. When she died tragically in a plane crash in 2001…they gave the role to Jessica. So this proves my point that this role and many others should go to black women. But Hollywood wants to erase the image of the black woman. They want to keep the dark skinned African looking woman away from her rightful place….with the black man. But keeping black men and women separated is what Hollywood does best. Even when a black woman has a starring role she is linked with a either a white partner or lover. I have seen this in shows like Scandal,Sleepy Hollow and Minority Report. This is a way to kill two birds with one stone. By putting Latinas in these roles they are saying that they are a better match for black men. Which of course is a boldface lie. And secondly it promotes race mixing and making pretty little “exotic babies”. Which is brainwashing us into believing that looking less black is better. This is another reason we need our own television studios and production companies. That way we can promote black love and show that strong black relationships are what’s really important. Yes I know there are dark skinned Hispanics from Brazil,Cuba,Mexico,Puerto Rico and Colombia. I have met some really beautiful Afro-Latina sistas. I’m not speaking about Latinas that are clearly of African descent. If they have a African textured hair,black features and have a dark brown complexion they are obviously black women. I’m talking about these straight haired,light skinned women with obvious European features. If you look at it from a genetic standpoint they are mostly European. I know people don’t want to admit this but it’s the truth. Like I said before,it doesn’t matter what language you speak. What matters in this world is race,heritage and culture. And although culture is very important,in a system of white supremacy race is the MOST important. So don’t be fooled by these white looking Latinas in films with black men. This is not progress for black people at all. These are interracial relationships. You have to call it what it is. Some might have a little Africa in their bloodline but they are still NOT black. And any black men saying it’s okay because they are “women of color” is just saying that because they want to date non-black women. I’m very hip to that term so don’t even try it. Hollywood is doing this on purpose to make us view Latinas as more acceptable because they are not “too white” but yet “not black” either. Doesn’t matter to me. It all comes down to promoting race mixing and dividing black men and women further apart. This is what their whole agenda is about. And one more thing,these Latinas get their hips,thighs and nice butt from the African woman. That’s why many Cuban,Colombian and Puerto Rican woman have nice shapes. Yet they want to erase the image of the black woman?? This is very insulting!! Give the original woman her props! Why go for a cheap imitation of the black woman? When you can have the real thing.
Part 3 coming next! The wrap up!
