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.
Those who have loved and dated across the color line have to negotiate the realities of race in our society, and by extension, its impact on their relationships. For many, this is done through explicit conversations. For others, these dialogues come implicitly, through gestures, and taken for granted shared assumptions.
Contrary to popular notions, BDSM is not about abuse. It’s consensual and trusting and people refer to it as “play” (as in “I want to play with you”). The point of BDSM is not sexual intercourse. In fact, when Williams recalls her first experience as a masochist seven years ago, she says she met her partner, a white man, at a bar and “fell in love at first sight.” They made their way back to his hotel. “For the first time I felt someone could see who I really was.” And that was someone who found it erotic to be a submissive to her partner.
In recent years, Williams has added another element to her repertoire as a masochist. She’s begun to engage in what is called “race play” or “racial play”—that is getting aroused by intentionally using racial epithets like the word “nigger” or racist scenarios like a slave auction.
Race play is being enjoyed in the privacy of bedrooms and publicly at BDSM parties, and it’s far from just black and white. It also includes “playing out” Nazi interrogations of Jews or Latino-on-black racism, and the players can be of any racial background and paired up in a number of ways (including a black man calling his black girlfriend a “nigger bitch”). White master seeking black slave, however, seems the more popular of the combinations.
I could not engage is such types of role-playing. My personal politics would not allow it; my libido would not respond.
That is my choice. I do not deny others their pleasure.
However, as someone interested in the relationship between race, politics, and racial ideologies, I am fascinated by how individuals negotiate white supremacy and Power.
Vi Johnson, the black matriarch of BDSM, has presented on race play at kinky conferences and she believes the appeal is different for each person. “When you’re being sexually stimulated, you’re not thinking that what’s stimulating you is a racist image, ” she says. “You’re just getting turned on.”
So, for some, she says, race play is about playing with authority and for others, it might be humiliation.
Well-known sexuality and SM educator Midori, who is Japanese and German, often presents her theory that humiliation in BDSM is linked to self-esteem. Take the woman who likes it when her boyfriend calls her a “slut,” Midori says. Perhaps the woman internalized the idea that “good girls don’t,” but she enjoys her sexuality. Because the boyfriend sees her in all her complexity, Midori says, when he calls her a slut, “he is freeing her of the social expectations of having to be modest.”
That’s different than having some stranger (and jerk) calling you a slut. The stranger doesn’t see the full woman. It’s similar with race play, Midori says. By focusing, for example, on a black man’s body, while he’s bound as a slave, she’s bolstering his own perception of himself as strong and powerful…
Her workshop demonstrations have included full auction scenes mimicking those of the Old South. In them, she is the plantation mistress inspecting a black man for “purchase.” He’s in shackles and “I slap him on his face and push him down on the ground, make him lick my shoes,” she says, emphasizing that she only does the demonstration after the “psychological” talk.
Here a white “slave owning” master offers some insight on race play and “plantation retreats”:
My major kink-interest is in chattel slave-ownership in today’s world but following the historical models of 8,000 years of historical slave-ownership tradition (from Greek-Roman through modern day)…along with everything that might relate to it (which sometimes can go pretty far into the realm of BDSM activities, depending on the partner). I’m very knowlegble in the field of historical slavery.
Some of my other non-kink interests include history and philosophy, classic cars, music, science, singing and writing lyrics, architecture, comparative culture, language, reading and counseling..
I get a lot of questions about “Plantation Retreat”…so here are some basic facts:
My goal in creating and hosting Plantation Retreat is to provide a safe and welcoming, private place (and opportunity) for White Masters and plantation slaves/niggers to meet and explore their mutual fantasies. I get a lot of questions and answer many individual questions. To simplify things…here is some general basic information:
The gathering lasts for up to 2 weeks this year, with the main gathering around the 4th of July…folks can stay as long or as short a time as they want (some stay even longer). Masters can stay at the compound here or in a hotel if they want to (as can any personal slaves that they bring with them or any other slave that is ordered to do so).
Slaves arriving on their own stay here and are considered (and protected) as property of the plantation or my personal property.
Slaves sign up for a specific length of service. Slaves can specify what their limits are or that they will serve in any way the Master/guests desire. Sex is not required, but depends on individual choice (as do other activities). Most Masters desire to use slaves sexually in addition to normal domestic services. Some slaves are used only for hard labor. A slave’s assignments and duties are based on its experience and ability-level (some require whipping or punishment). Masters have their own king or queen bed (up to 5 available); slaves sleep where they are told to sleep (unless they are ordered into a Master’s bed and allowed to sleep there). Normally a slave sleeps at the foot of a Master’s bed, but some can be chained or caged elsewhere.
The minimum requirement for slaves is that they be obedient and respectful of all Masters and work to give the Masters and enjoyable time. This can be anything from preparing and serving drinks and meals, doing housework or yard work, to providing sexual relief on demand, to hard labor in the compound (depending on the slave’s previously-stated limitations). Slaves should expect Masters to be totally comfortable and free in using humiliating or degrading racist speech in referring to or speaking to mud-slaves. It’s not all punishment and misery for slaves…there is plenty of time for camaraderie and playful fun also. Some slaves even form a brotherly bond with the other slaves that serve with them. Masters also form lasting bonds and friendships based on their mutual interests and sharing slaves.
It’s just a small friendly gathering of White Masters at my house/compound….being served by mud-slaves as might have been in a modern version of slave-days. one might call it a situation of consensual non-consent/slavery. Slaves can set their limits and the time they will be in service as slaves in advance…. and also what they expect to learn and experience from the experience. The more that a slave lets me know about itself in advance, the better I can guide its growth from the experience.
Backstage racism mates with BDSM, the eroticization of the black body, and finds a place online through a variant of cyber-racism. Amazing. We do in fact live in interesting times.
They tell me it’s Black History month. Shortest month of the year of course. But it’s Black history month every month on this blog. So before the month is out I thought I’d end the month on a high note. They say that most black women hated black men nowadays. Don’t the young black women today despise black men? Not judging by this video. This video doesn’t even have 1,000 views. Not very surprising though. The media wants us to believe that ALL black hate black men with a passion. The racist media does all it can to keep us divided and hating each other. If this video was about bashing black men it would have thousands of views in a matter of days. And anti-black women videos are also overrepresented as well. These videos help to destroy black consciousness,black love and unity. I know many black men that love black women and vice versa.
I know the Uncle Toms,bed wenches,self haters and swirlers will hate this video.lol They hate black love. This video destroys their perception of the world. But don’t fall for the propaganda. These are the videos that don’t go viral. And with good reason. They don’t want us to love and respect each other. Black love is a threat to white supremacy. But I applaud these black women in the video. It’s always good to have words of encouragement. I want the sistas to know that we love and appreciate you too. Much respect and Kushite approved!
