The services of black people are no longer needed. It is clear that black people create…Europeans imitate. They seem to have a fascination with black culture but despise black people. They like jazz,hip hop and r&b music. But they feel it’s better if delivered in a white package.
No one has been more overhyped than gay singer Sam Smith. His music is constantly on the radio.
And the only white singer more overhyped than Sam Smith is probably singer Adele. White people love this woman. Some white music critics have called her sound the “new soul”. I beg to differ. Her voice doesn’t move me like black soul singers. Adele’s voice is closer to someone like Celine Dion than someone like Aretha Franklin. Many black singers like Marvin Gaye or Al Green have songs that touch your spirit and bring you to tears. White singers like Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke can’t quite pull that off. Adele has a decent voice. But it’s nothing if you compare her voice to singers like Patti Labelle,Anita Baker,Whitney Houston,Nina Simone,Chaka Khan or Gladys Knight. They make her sound average at best.
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.
A friend told me about this female rapper Secrett. He told me about this catchy song she had called Melanin. I must admit it is pretty catchy. And of course on this blog we support all things that are pro-melanin. Here’s a little biography from her website:
Whether she is lyrically lashing out on society and politics over soulful hip hop instrumentals, or keeping it simple and carefree over a hard hitting trap beat – Secrett is sure to move the mind and the crowd. Though she was born in Chicago, she was raised all over the world due to her father serving in the U.S. Army. This “military brat” represents the unique community that struggles to call one place “home” – essentially from everywhere… and no where. Hence, her brand, “BraTT Rap”.
Secrett currently resides in New York City, where she began recording, and continues to earn respect as a serious up and coming independent artist. In June 2014 she released her first project – My S.T.U.P.I.D. Mixtape. Hot 97’s Dj Enuff and Thisis50’s funnyman, Jack Thriller, hosted the tape and release event respectively. With co-signs from two of NYC’s most respected entertainers under her belt, Secrett gained momentum as a new artist and hasn’t turned back.
Since her debut, Secrett has remained consistent through releasing singles & remixes, self-directed music videos, and mixtapes – Picture Day (2015), Clock Out (2016), and Verbal Warning (2016) – on hubs such as Spinrilla.com. Social media power blogs BallerAlert (@balleralert) and The Shade Room (@theshaderoominc), as well as Vlad TV, are among several media outlets that have featured Secrett’s work. You may catch Secrett performing live at local open mics, or bigger venues such as NYC’s legendary S.O.B.’s and BlackThorn 51. Stream & download Secrett’s top singles on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, & Tidal. Secrett is currently working on her EP, set to release in 2017.
Queens-bred hip-hop/soul artist, Dynasty, has the soul of a dreamer and the fearless determination to follow that dream wherever it might lead. DY has lit up stages alongside some of your favorite artists including Erykah Badu, The Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli and KRS One who proclaimed “THIS is a real emcee!” after catching her set.
Her performance on records and on the stage truly sets her apart. Dynasty writes from the heart yet at the same time, remains a beast on the mic. She has collaborated with legendary, world renowned artists such as Talib Kweli and DJ Premier who labeled her a “spit queen” based on her lyrical prowess. Influenced by gritty northern sounds and life’s adventures, she brings us a perfectly balanced raw and real experience through her music. She has toured internationally from Germany to Romania and beyond, performing and connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds.
After spending a little more than a year working on other artistic endeavors (she is an actress and also runs an arts-based empowerment program, The PUSH Project) she is back to her first love, her music, which she refers to as hip hop/ soul. There is no “set demographic” for D.Y., no gimmick, no crafted agenda aside from making beautifully raw music. Her authentic mass appeal transcends all boundaries.
Rightfully so, soul music touches the world.
Last week I heard some co-workers talking about a new Netflix show,Luke Cage. It was two black co-workers going on about how it’s a show with a black superhero kicking ass. I already knew about the character because I used to read the Luke cage comic book as a kid. I don’t have Netflix but I’ve seen the show advertised on television a few times. For those that don’t know,Luke Cage first appeared in Marvel Comics back in 1972. He was also known as Power Man. The basic story on him is he is a black man living in Harlem. He was wrongly convicted and unjustly imprisoned, was altered in a failed prison experiment that granted him unbreakable skin and superhuman strength. His skin can resist high-caliber bullets, puncture wounds, corrosives, biological attacks, and extreme temperatures and pressures without sustaining damage. With his street smarts, and unending determination to do right. Luke was also a member of The Avengers and the Leader of Thunderbolts for a time.
I’ve always said that white superheroes were an extension of white supremacy. Which is why white Hollywood finds it important to give the masses heroes like Superman,Batman,Iron Man,Captain America and Thor. They all represent white power and authority. Which is why they always win in the end. It’s also to show white dominance over other races. So as teenager I liked reading comic books like the Black Panther and Luke Cage. Most children like to see an image of themselves in a strong and powerful position. But we have to be mindful of the image that Hollywood gives us of black people. There’s a few reasons why I don’t think this is a positive character for little black boys to admire.
The show stars actor Mike Colter as Luke Cage. As well as actors Alfre Woodard,Mahershala Ali,Rosario Dawson and Simone Missick. The trailer looks pretty good. It has some nice action scenes and a cool hip hop soundtrack. But one of the things that always disturbed me was Luke Cage was always fighting in the hood. That’s nice that he was fighting all the drug dealers and gang leaders. But he was using all that super strength and bullet proof melanin skin against other black people. Why not use all that power against the racist power structure? Why not expose the racist cops that kill black men,women and children? I know that drug abuse and crime is a problem in many of our neighborhoods. But it seems like they’re giving us an image of a powerful black man but he doesn’t really use it to free his people from racism and oppression. It’s almost like he’s just doing the dirty work for the powers that be but doing nothing for his people in a poor community.
And of course he must have a white girlfriend right? I will admit they did keep it true to the comic book. In the comic book his girlfriend is superhero Jessica Jones. They have a daughter together. She has her own show on Netflix as well. Jones is played by actress Krysten Ritter. Many of the sex scenes between them are quite graphic. But this theme goes in line with the Hollywood agenda I have covered many times before. Hollywood is scared of black love. They don’t like to promote it at all. They rather show a big strong dark skinned black man race mixing with a white woman and make biracial babies. The thought of two black people procreating scares the hell out of the white power elite. The want us to dilute our beautiful melanin and black genetics. It’s obvious with by all the rap music in the soundtrack they want to market this to young black boys. But this is not a show for black children. We want black superheroes that are proud of their African heritage and culture. We want heroes that marry black women and use their powers to protect their communities. What good is all that power if it’s not used for the good of your people? It would be better if Luke Cage went after people like Donald Trump,Hillary Clinton or Bill Gates. Or used his power to fight the European and Asian power groups. Taking out small time drug dealers is not making a big impact. A black superhero should represent Black Power.
But we shouldn’t be surprised after looking at Mike Colter’s real life wife(above). I guess that’s why he was perfect for the role. It shows the type of mentality he already has. Black people are so desperate for a hero many will accept a hero in any form. It doesn’t matter if the image or message is not productive for our people. The bottom line is this show is giving us the same old big Black Buck stereotype. Just a Buck for hire. Nothing more…nothing less. I would advise black boys to go read about real black heroes like Nat Turner,Marcus Garvey or Malcolm X. This show has nothing to offer you.
