The Interracial Madness-Sexuality in TV and Film(Part 2 of 3)

Film historian Charles Woods talks in this video about interracial sex/love in Hollywood films. Woods says in Hollywood there is always a “3D Effect” when interracial relationships are involved.  The three D’s are denigration,devastation, and destruction. Woods is exactly right.  This is something they do in Hollywood films a lot.  Another common theme is the black men and women are always separated from each other. They do this by not casting another black person of the opposite sex.

The Hays Code.jpg

Back in 1930 the Motion Picture Code was created. It was called The Hays Code. The picture(above) is some of the guidelines. Of course you can see that number four is no miscegenation(race mixing). Naturally times have changed so it’s been revised.  The powers that be realize that promoting interracial sex can be used against black people.  So of course the list seems very outdated at the present time.  Here’s the complete list:

Scandal

Of course we are all familiar with the show Scandal. Scandal has beautiful actress Kerry Washington caught in a white boy-love triangle. And even when an episode had her former black boyfriend show up…conveniently they could not see eye to eye.  What’s amazing is that the show is written by Shonda Rhimes…a black woman no less.  But of course Shonda has to be down with the interracial propaganda if she wants to continue working in Hollywood.

Pilot

On the hit show Supergirl,actor Mehcad Brooks is caught in a white girl-love triangle.  Supergirl is played by actress Melissa Benoist. Brooks plays James Olsen who has a girlfriend  played by Jenna Tatum. But he has feelings for Supergirl also. Where are the black actresses on the show?  There are….ZERO! No surprise right?  This way the white girls have no competition with black women.

Candice

In keeping with the superhero theme,there is also the show The Flash.  Where we find actress Candice Patton. She’s biracial but never mind that at the moment.  She plays a character who has a white boyfiend. But she is feeling conflicted because she’s starting to have feelings for another man.  YEP! You guessed it..another white guy.  Who writes this stuff??

Jungle Fever

One of the first films I remember that caused a lot of controversy was Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever(1991).  It starred Wesley Snipes who cheated on his biracial wife with a white woman.  Average looking actress Annabella Sciorra  played the mistress. It was a big deal I guess at the time because the story ine centered on race a lot. But nowadays the racial issue is hardly brought up. I guess this is an attempt to normalize interracial relationships by ignoring race altogether.

A Bronx Tale

The film A Bronx Tale(1993) had an interracial relationship starring Taral Hicks. Her character falls in love with an Italian boy played by Lillo Brancato. There were a lot of these type of these films in the nineties.

Corrina

The film Corrina,Corrina(1994) starred Whoopi Goldberg who falls for actor Ray Liotta. This was just one of many films where Whoopi is paired with a white man. If you include this film,Jungle Fever,A Bronx Tale and The Bodyguard with Whitney Houston…the nineties had a lot of interracial films.  I think the nineties was the decade they really started pushing much of the interracial propaganda.

The film Save the Last Dance(2001) starred actor Sean Patrick  Thomas and actress Julia Stiles. It was about an out of town white teenage girl coping with the death of her mother. She and her father move to Chicago and she falls in love with a black teenager(Thomas). The film was a huge hit back in 2001. It grossed over $130 million.  I think that’s one of the reasons we saw such an increase of these type of relationships in films.

In the drama film O(2001)  Julia Stiles stars again in an interracial relationship.  This time with actor Mekhi Phifer.  The film is a loose modern adaption of William Shakespeare’s Othello.  This film also perpetuates a lot of negative stereotypes.  In the clip(above)  Phifer’s character has sex with her then when she says stop…he continues anyway.  So basically he rapes her.  Then if that wasn’t enough he chokes her to death afterwards.  So we have a black man that is a rapist and murderder.   That’s racist Hollywood for you.

Trey Songz

They even have interracial couples in horror films. In the film Texas Chainsaw 3D(2103),singer /actor Trey Songz was in a sex scene with actress Tania Raymonde. Trey is a horrible actor and should stick to singing.  The film was a total waste of a hour and thirty minutes. I guess the message of the film was just because a crazy lunatic with a chainsaw is killing people…doesn’t mean you can’t find the time to get your “swirl on”.

Blair .jpg

Actor Blair Underwood played the boyfriend of actress Julia Louis-Dreyfuss on the sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine(2006-2010).  I remember meeting Underwood over fifteen years ago at a black rodeo in Burbank,Ca.  Underwood  was a real cool brother.  I remember there a lot of black women around him trying to get his attention. I know many black women see him as a sex symbol.  I’m sure many of them are not too fond of seeing him in these roles with non black women.

Taye Diggs

On the drama Private Practice(2007-2013) Taye Diggs was a relationship with actress Kate Walsh.  I guess Taye is the go to interracial black guy in Hollywood.  Kind of like how Zoe Saldana is always linked with white guys in films.  But it kind of makes sense when you think about it.  Since Taye likes pale-skinned flat assed white girls in real life,it only makes sense that he always gets the phone call for these roles.  And Zoe is married to a white guy in real life too. See the pattern?

 

Joy Bryant

On the television show Parenthood(2010-2015)actress Joy Bryant played the wife to actor Dax Shepard.  Isn’t this a perfect picture?  This is what they want for black people.  This is another way to promote the false belief that race mixing will end racism.  That mixed babies will heal all the wounds.That somehow just having sex with whites will wash away hundreds of years of slavery,rape,lynchings and genocide. I covered this once before.

Robinson was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, and moved with her family to Los Angeles when she was four. She graduated from high school at the age of 16 with dreams of following in her mother’s footsteps by opening her own hair salon. For a few years, this dream was a reality as Robinson acquired her cosmetology certification and worked as a hair-stylist. But Robinson had other dreams as well, dreams that involved becoming a professional dancer and choreographer. When the opportunity presented itself, Robinson decided to try out for a spot as a dancer in a music video. “An artist was looking for dancers, so my friend and I went on stage at the club with some other girls and won,” she explained at her website, http://www.gofati-ma.com. Even without formal training, Robinson was able to rise quickly from video dancer to video choreographer by spending rehearsal time in the local dance clubs and adding a flavor of her own to popular dance moves.

Robinson received what she called her “big break” in 1992 when movie director, John Singleton, asked her to choreograph a video he was directing. The video turned out to be the short film, “Remember the Time,” by Michael Jackson. Robinson considered that video one of her shining moments even as late as 2000. She also enjoyed working with Jackson, whom she called a perfectionist. “Remember the Time” was, in fact, the break that Robinson needed. Jackson was the measuring stick in the music video industry, and numerous artists in all genres tried to achieve his greatness by hiring his choreographer.

According to Serena Altschul of MTV, you can turn to MTV at any time of the day and catch a glimpse of Robinson’s resume. She started saturating the video market in the early 1990s working with artists like Bobby Brown, Notorious B.I.G., and Aaliyah. She received her first MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best Choreography for Brandy’s “Baby,” in 1995. The nomination started a trend for the artist, for she was nominated each year between 1997 and 2001 for an MTV Video Music Award. To top off 1995, Robinson also choreographed the Mary J. Blige Summer Jam tour.

Robinson’s work in commercials brought recognition from her peers when she was nominated in 2000 for the American Choreography Award for best Choreography in the GAP “khaki soul” ad. She also continued to work in movies, choreographing moves for Aaliyah in Romeo Must Die, in 2000. She reached a wider audience in 2001 with Save the Last Dance, and the critically acclaimed Ali. The exposure also brought the dancer to the attention to those at the Drew Carey Show. She choreographed the season premiere of the show in 2001 and officially moved into the mainstream with her dance style.

While her star was rising, Robinson experienced some joy and pain in her personal life. She celebrated the birth of a son on August 1, 2000, but a year later, she suffered the loss of her close friend and colleague, Aaliyah, on August 25, 2001. Robinson was with Aaliyah in the Bahamas filming the video, “Rock the Boat.” “Since 1995, when I became Aaliyah’s choreographer, she has been like a little sister to me,” she said in a tribute she wrote in Essence. “Although she is gone, I will always cherish the precious memories.”

For future projects, Robinson said she would like to do some interior designing and, more in step with her current role, she would like to direct. She ventured into that field with the Dance and Shout video for Shaggy, Cheatin’ On Me by Kandi, and a few others. After being named on of Entertainment Weekly’s most creative people in entertainment, exploring her love of directing should only reap further benefits for Robinson.
