Keri Lynn Hilson  was born on December 5, 1982. Hilson  is an American singer, songwriter, actress and record producer. She was born and raised in Decatur, Georgia, and spent most of her youth working with producer Anthony Dent, as a songwriter and background vocalist for several R&B and hip hop artists. By the age of 14, Hilson had secured a record deal with the girl group D’Signe, who later disbanded. She attended Oxford College of Emory University and Emory University in Atlanta, while she continued writing songs for artists, including Britney Spears, The Pussycat Dolls, and Mary J. Blige, with the production and songwriting team, The Clutch. In 2006, Hilson signed with American rapper and producer Timbaland‘s record label, Mosley Music. Her breakthrough came the following year after appearing on Timbaland’s single “The Way I Are“, which topped charts around the world.

Hilson’s music style is generally R&B, hip hop and pop; womanhood, sexual intimacy and love are typical themes. Her musical influences come from her father’s side of the family. Hilson’s debut studio album, In a Perfect World…, was released in 2009, and debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200 chart, eventually being certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album spawned the hit singles, “Knock You Down“, “Turnin Me On” and “I Like“. It also earned Hilson two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “Knock You Down”. Her second studio album, No Boys Allowed, was released in 2010 and was considerably less successful than its predecessor; however, it included the platinum single, “Pretty Girl Rock“.

Teria

Teria Birlon realized at an early age that she loved to create and tell stories. Growing up you could often find her at home in a corner formulating scenes and acting them out with an all-star cast…………her dolls! Her first performance on the stage was in an elementary school play called Sacagawea in which she played the title role. After the curtain call, she ran up to her mother and told her, “I want to do that again!”

And that’s just what she did. Teria began honing her craft in elementary, middle and high school plays as well as church plays in her community. She obtained a B.A. from Alabama State University’s well renowned theatre department and an M.F.A. from University of Washington’s prestigious Professional Actor Training Program.

Black Love Denied: Black Women hooking up with White Men(Part 1 of 3)

BL1

Black love scares the racists who run this country. It has become quite obvious that television and film are tools of mind control.  And they use the media to brainwash black men and women on a global scale. Black people are in a physical  and spiritual war against our oppressors.  But the war is also psychological. Last year I covered the subject of Black Love being under attack. https://kushiteprince.wordpress.com/2015/03/15/black-love-is-a-threat-to-the-racist-power-structure/

This time I want to show how this process has been going on for years. And go in detail a little more. The  promotion photo above is  from the drama Minority Report. It’s funny it’s called Minority Report when there are hardly any minorities on the show.  Meagan Good is in the lead role but surrounded by mostly white men.  There’s an Asian woman,white woman and a Hispanic man also on the show. Although Meagan is not romantically involved with any man on the show…yet.  There seems to be a growing trend of putting black women with white men on television shows and films. While some may see this as racial progress,I do not.  I believe Hollywood is making a conscious effort to keep black men and women divided in films and television. It’s obvious they don’t want the masses to see too much black love on the screen. It seems that any time a black woman has a lead role in a show there are no black men to be found. I will be covering black men in part two of this series. This phenomenon is not really new since it’s been pushed on us for decades.  I want to show how this pattern is a form of mind control to get blacks to see interracial dating as a better alternative.  There’s been so many examples of this that there is no way I could possibly list them all. There’s just too many. It would end up being a ten part series. But I did want to highlight just a few examples over the years.

BL16

Back in 1968 there was the famous kissing scene between Nichelle Nichols and William Shatner on Star Trek.  It was very controversial at the time since it was the first interracial kiss on television. Of course nowadays it’s normal in television and film.

BL10

Back in 1971 was the blaxploitation film Honky. It was one of those low budget films that were common in the seventies. It was a love story with actress Brenda Sykes and John Nielson. If you look at the poster you’ll see the music was done by Mr Interracial King himself,Quincy Jones.

 

BL10

When the sitcom The Jeffersons debuted in 1975,there was the interracial couple Tom and Helen Willis. Played by actors Franklin Cover and Roxie Roker.

BL12

Superstar Whitney Houston was in the film The Bodyguard in 1992. She played a famous singer who fell in love with her bodyguard,Kevin Costner. Although the film and soundtrack made millions,I was never a fan of the film.  Houston was much too classy for Costner. I hated seeing her with this ugly man. I’ve never liked him at all.

BL11

The drama film Zebrahead(1992) starred the beautiful N’Bushe Wright.  Her love interest was played by Michael Rapaport. This is another film that was hard to stomach.  There’s no way a black women this beautiful would lower herself in being with this creature. Rapaport has made some racially insensitive comments in the past. He’s another racist punk I can’t stand.

BL14

In the crime thriller Jackie Brown(1997),black film icon Pam Grier had Robert Forster has a love interest.  This interracial couple was another mismatch. As usual you get a beautiful black woman with a below average white man.  This was a film done by racist director Quentin Tarantino.  Tarantino is in love with the word “nigger”.  He says it about a thousand times in most of his films.  He gets a kick out of using it all the time and gets away with it by saying ” it’s all just art”. Yeah right!

BL5

On the sitcom Girlfriends(2000-2008) actress Jill Marie Jones played character Toni.  After dating black men who were losers,couldn’t commit,womanizers and didn’t make enough money…..she finds happiness with her white knight.  They eventually got married and had a child.  Her husband was played by actor Jason Pace. So much for black love right?

This video from YouTube highlights some of the interracial couples on television over the years.  There are many of these videos all over YouTube.  You actually have some delusional black women uploading this stuff.  These are by women who have clearly been brainwashed to believe that voluntary genocide is a good thing. They are sadly mistaken!

BL9

Then there was the romantic drama Something New(2006),that starred actress Sanaa Lathan. Her character falls in love with a white man,Simon Baker. After ditching her black fiancée because it just didn’t “feel right”.  I guess they lacked chemistry. Anyway Lathan portrayed character Kenya McQueen. McQueen?? Interesting last name? Were they trying to say that the Black Queen should choose a White King? You be the judge.

BL1

How could we forget the film Lakeview Terrace? This thriller was released back in 2008. Long before Kerry Washington was in a white man love triangle on the hit show Scandal,she was getting her swirl on with actor Patrick Wilson. This was a very interesting film because the interracial couple was been harassed by a black neighbor played by Samuel L. Jackson. It added an interesting twist to it.  A black man not down with the interracial propaganda?? Imagine that!

Keke Palmer

In the comedy/musical Joyful Noise(2102) actress Keke Palmer was in an interracial relationship with actor Jeremy Jordan. On a sidenote,recently Palmer said she doesn’t like to label her sexuality. She doesn’t want to say if she’s gay,straight or bisexual.  That’s an interesting comment. Well now that I think about it,Queen Latifah played her mother in Joyful Noise. And we all know Queen Latifah likes women.  Maybe some of Queen’s “lesbian vibes” rubbed off on Palmer. Who knows?

BL1

Think Like a Man(2012) was a romantic comedy with a mostly black cast.  It was actually a book written by Uncle Tom himself Steve Harvey. I have no idea why it was made into a film. But anyway even though the cast was mostly black they wanted to go for the “crossover appeal” so they added an interracial couple in the mix(no pun intended). Gabrielle Union was the unlucky one in the film having to kiss the unattractive actor Jerry Ferrara.

BL2

Best Man Holiday(2013) was released the next year.  I guess after the success of adding an interracial couple in Think Like a Man the producers figured they’d try it also. Best Man Holiday was a sequel to the film The Best Man(1999). Nia Long was paired with actor Eddie Cibrian.  I know quite a few black men that told me they didn’t like this pairing. A lot of brothers love Nia long. But just in general Nia has a big following in the black community. This was not a good look at all. They should’ve just kept the cast black.

BL8

The show Sleep Hollow has become a big hit. It premiered back in 2013 and is still on. It stars actress Nicole Beharie. Her partner is played by white actor Tom Mison.  Much like the show Minority Report with Meagan Good, once again an attractive black woman on a show and no black men anywhere. The combination is always the same.  If a black man is the lead, there are no black woman as love interest. If a black woman is the lead,there’s no black men around. And if black men are around they seem to have no interest in the black woman. This really insults my intelligence. And these shows are big hits with young white men.  I guess because  their idea of heaven is them having all access to beautiful black women with no black men around. Sounds like a nightmare to me!

BL2

The Haves and The Have Nots is a cable television drama.  It premiered back in 2013 on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network. The fact that Oprah is involved with it should be enough for you to know it’s not very good. Oprah is not pro-black by any means. But it get worse.  The show is written,produced and directed by Tyler Perry(known homosexual). When I heard he was producing it I knew the show would be garbage.  I figured it would have black dysfunction,violence,drugs,interracial sex and homosexuality. It turns out I was right on all accounts.  The only thing good on the entire show is beautiful actress Tika Sumpter.  Although she is a talented actress not even she can save this mental pollution disguised as entertainment. On the show she has an affair with a married man. So basically she plays a whore and homewrecker.  And of course she has an affair with a white man,played by actor John Schneider. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey don’t give a damn about black people and our struggle.  They don’t mind being used as tools for white supremacy. Just as long as they get paid.  They both know how powerful television images can be.  I just hope sistas are aware of this sick propaganda being used on them.  Your white oppressor is not the man you need to be in bed with.  The black man is the natural partner to the black woman. They are doing everything to keep us separated in television and films.  So if the media is telling us that black women should be with white men..who should the brothers hook up with? Hmmmmm….you’ll find out in part two.

 

The Butler- Why are we still playing butlers and maids?

Butler
On August 16 a new film will be released. The Butler is just the latest film in Hollywood propaganda. It’s the story of a butler(Cecil Gaines) who served eight presidents from 1952-1986.The producers made sure to put a lot of black celebrities in it so that black people will flock to the theaters in droves. It stars Forest Whitaker as the main character,Cecil Gaines. With Oprah Winfrey playing his wife.It also stars Lenny Kravitz,Cuba Gooding Jr,David Oyelowo,Terrence Howard and Yaya Alafia. Even Mariah Carey has a small cameo in the film. Don’t worry though,there are white people in the film as well. We don’t want people to think this is a “black film”. Most of the white men in the film are playing the Presidents. Actors like Alan Rickman,Liev Schreiber,Robin Williams and James Mardsen.And of course this film is by director Lee “Monster’s Ball” Daniels. This homosexual self-hating director is doing everything he can to degrade the image of black people. If Monster’s Ball and Precious weren’t enough,now we have this garbage in theaters. There are so many great uplifting stories to tell black children. There are great black heroes and African heroes in our history. We had civilizations long before we ever had contact with Europeans. Hollywood makes great films that put their history in a positive light. Stories about the Romans and Greek empires. They make films that give them a sense of pride showing themselves as great warriors. Films like Gladiator,Lords of the Rings,Alexander and 300. And what do we get. Think Like a Man? Booty Call? Barbershop? Madea Goes to Jail?? This is a disgrace! And Hollywood is very slick. They know black people will most likely see this film if they hype it up enough and put big black stars in it. Please do NOT spend your money on this film. We have to let our voices be heard. Let Hollywood know that we are hip to this game they’re playing with us. They keep making films like this to keep us in a subservient mindset. Don’t fall for it.
They keep telling us that times have changed. Have they really changed? Back in the 20’s and 30’s black women like Hattie McDaniel had to play maids. I realize the acting opportunities were limited back then.
The Help1
If that’s true then how do you explain films like The Help?
The Help2
We don’t want to admit it but nothing has really changed. This is nothing but the refinement of white supremacy. We are still playing maids,butlers,thugs,pimps,whores,gang members and drug dealers. What makes this film so bad is how they try to gloss it up like playing a butler is so regal and grand. I watched the trailer and they play this moving sentimental music in it. I had to hold back my laughter. I could hardly keep a straight face. And I’ve watched some of the interviews with the black actors in this film. Look at this video of Cuba Gooding Jr and Lenny Kravitz. It’s really funny watching these two clowns try to explain how playing a butler is such a honor. See how long you can watch it before you start laughing.

Another thing I noticed in the trailer is actor David Oyelowo plays the son of Forest Whitaker. He gets involved in the civil rights movement and eventually becomes militant and joins the Black Panthers. Needless to say,he and his father don’t see eye to eye politically. There’s a scene at the dinner table where he and his father get into an argument. He insults his father and then his mother(Oprah Winfrey) slaps him across the face! She then tells him “Everything you have is because of that butler!” It’s a very powerful scene. But it’s also very telling. By having the mother slap the militant son it’s telling black people to not fight back. The son is portrayed as the villain and is not following the “right path”. The film is telling black people to be more like the butler. In other words,black people should not fight back but just be quiet and obey your white oppressors. We should “suffer in silence”. This is white supremacy and Hollywood propaganda at it’s finest.
Some might say that I’m overreacting because I haven’t seen the film. But I don’t have to see it to know it’s propaganda. I’ve seen Hollywood do this time and time again. And I’m really quite sick of it. I’m tired of seeing my people portrayed this way. Films like this are nothing but mind control. And all these black actors know it as well. But they just want a paycheck. Here’s a video from a brother named Solomon on Youtube. I totally agree with his all his points about this film.

The truth is we need our own film studios. That way we can write and produce the stories we want to tell. And when I say studios I’m talking about black owned and operated film production companies. Tyler Perry has his own film company and Oprah Winfrey has her cable station OWN. But they are still backed by white/Jewish owners. Which means if Oprah or Tyler tried to tell a story that was too powerful,positive and uplifting about black people—their white slave owners could tell them not to make it. I must be telling the truth because look at the irrelevant material that Oprah and Tyler produce. Tyler with his silly sitcoms that reinforce negative black stereotypes. And Oprah doing her exclusive interviews with Lance Armstrong and Rihanna. These are topics that are totally irrelevant to the struggles of black people. We are facing unemployment,suicide,drug addiction,police brutality,genocide,AIDS and imprisonment. Meanwhile Oprah is interviewing Lindsay Lohan?! Come on Oprah, get with it!
Like I said that means we need independent studios so no one can tell us what stories to tell or how to tell it. There are so many stories about black doctors,teachers,inventors and scientists that could be told. Where are the big motion pictures about Ida B. Wells,Dred Scott,Booker T. Washington,Charles Drew,Adam Clayton Powell Jr,Martin Delaney,Kwame Ture,Althea Gibson,Marcus Garvey,Harriet Tubman,Madame C.J. Walker and Fannie Lou Hamer? Where are the films about great Africans like Askia Toure,Queen Tiye,Yaa Asantewa,Idris Alooma,Taharka,Funmilayo Ransome Kuti,Kwame Nkrumah,Queen Nzinga,Khufu and Queen Nefertiti? We should be proud of such a rich and beautiful history. We have a history of black men and women who fought for justice,truth and black liberation. We can’t expect our oppressors to tell the stories of our people in the correct manner. If anything they will most likely alter and distort the legacies of our great leaders,teachers and freedom fighters. Now after looking at this short list of great black people in history I ask you again…..Why are we still playing butlers and maids?
