Looks like they could be related.lol
See if you can spot the dog in this trio.lol
Bakari Henderson was beaten to death last week in the Greek Islands. He was only 22 years old with his whole life ahead of him. It was at a nightclub by a group of racist Serbians. I heard that he had taken a picture with a white women. And I guess the Serbian guys didn’t like that too much. He was beaten by a bouncer,bartender and six tourists. Henderson was with a group of white “friends”. His so called friends say how much they loved him and cared for him. So…why didn’t they intervene? Since they loved him so much. This is a damn shame!
I feel bad for this young brother. I feel bad anytime there is the loss of black life. I feel for his family as well. But we have to be honest. He put himself in harms way. It doesn’t matter if they were Serbians. Europeans are the same no matter where you go. First things first. Going out with a white woman and a group of white friends to Europe is a bad move! No black friends in sight. Europe is rampant with racism. The anti-blackness is through the roof! But I think he was young and naïve. I guess he didn’t know it at the time put he put himself in danger by doing that. Black people need to understand this when they travel abroad. Places like Europe and Middle east are very anti-black. I’m not saying you shouldn’t travel. I think black people should get a passport and travel more. But just be smart about it. Go with someone that has been to the country before. And go with a group of other black people. Whether they are family or personal friends. Just make sure it’s some people that aren’t going to just stand around like cowards while you’re getting beat to death. A lot of our people have bought into the idea of being color blind. Or that “loves sees no color”. Well if you think like that you need to snap out of that fantasy. It could be a matter of life and death. Let Bakari be a lesson to others. Peace.
I remember years ago I heard two white men discussing beautiful women. It was at a former job and they were talking about the prettiest women in Hollywood. One of them said actress Scarlett Johansson was the hottest. The other one said he thought actress Megan Fox or Charlize Theron were the prettiest. And they went back and forth naming actresses like Jennifer Lawrence,Liv Tyler and Natalie Portman. They never mentioned any black women in their discussion. And why should they? They’re white men so they are discussing what they find attractive. It’s only natural for a man to find his own more attractive than other races. But I do find it interesting that many times in Hollywood they will give a white woman attention for physical attributes usually associated with black women. When they talk about women with the most beautiful lips they bring up women like Brigitte Bardot,Sophia Loren or Angelina Jolie. I don’t get what all the hype is about. There are countless black women that have beautiful full lips. I see black women on the street everyday that have better lips than Angelina Jolie. This is one of the reasons you have white women getting lip injections so much today. They want lips that are pouty and full. The kind of lips you want to kiss. These white people know deep down that full lips are more attractive than thin lips. The white media always wants to uplift the beauty of white women at every turn. That’s one of the reasons I think their beauty is very overrated.
The media also loves to praise non-black women for having nice butts. This has always been a fascinating phenomenon to me. We all know that white women are known for having flat asses. When I was high school it was rare to see a white woman with some curvaceous thighs and nice butt. But ever since actress/singer Jennifer Lopez became big back in 2000..it’s all they talk about. Jennifer Lopez and rapper Iggy Azalea even did a song called Booty a few years ago. How can you have a song about booty without black women??? It’s obvious they want to promote any non-black woman with black women attributes. That’s why even though Lopez is Puerto Rican she’s still not a black woman. I doubt that Iggy’s butt is real. And she’s already admitted to breast augmentation. Iggy is a plastic rapping bimbo. And not a very good rapper at that. And Armenian no-talent socialite Kim Kardashian has also been praised for having a big butt. I personally don’t think the her butt is real. Kardashian and her fame whore sisters are the reason many white women are getting butt implants and Brazilian butt lifts. The big butt craze has gotten so out of hand even some black women are getting them. Which I never understood. Many black women already have nice butts. But this shows how powerful the media has become. It’s sad when black women feel they need to compete with something that most of them have naturally.
European beauty has always seemed manufactured to me. It seems like white women have always copied black beauty but denigrate it at the same time. Back in 1870 there was the Victorian Bustle dress era(pic above). This dress was very popular with white women. They say it was popular at ballrooms because of the expensive laces and multitude of fabrics. But the real reason was because the dresses made it look like they had a huge back side. It made them look more like a woman that had some curves. And keep this in mind that this was dress popular during slavery. Most likely their white slave owning husbands were lusting after their African female slaves. Many of these white women were jealous because their men were sneaking into the slave quarters at night. So they were resentful of African women and their naturally superior bodies.
When I did a google search for “most beautiful women”,I kept seeing the same handful of names. Names like Blake Lively,Jennifer Aniston,Nicole Kidman,Charlize Theron,Megan Fox,Kate Upton,Naomi Watts,Scarlett Johansson and Kim Kardashian. I was quite surprised that as I researched these “beautiful” women I realized so many of them have had plastic surgery. There are not too many natural beauties in Hollywood or the music industry. The pic(above) is of actress Megan Fox and it’s obvious she’s had quite a bit of work done to her face.
What about the “classic beauties” like Marilyn Monroe? Monroe is an iconic film star. Many regard her as the symbol of white female perfection. It has been well documented that Monroe had surgery done to her chin and a nose job as well. Well I guess no one is perfect right?
This is actress Nicole Kidman. I never found this woman attractive at all. Her sickly pale skin never turned me on. She wasn’t even attractive when she was young. And it looks like she got some lip injections too. Is she going for that “full lips” look like a black woman has?
This is film actress Jennifer Aniston. I never got the hype about this hideous looking creature. She clearly ahs gotten a nose job. And she is not aging well at all.
This is film actress Blake Lively. I’ve heard a lot of white boys say she is the hottest thing since sliced bread. Which is a good analogy because she is plain as a piece of white bread. She does nothing for me. She looks rather plain to me. Wouldn’t look twice at her on the street.
This is actress Scarlett Johansson. She is mentioned a lot in fashion magazines. They fawn over her all the time. Some have even compared her to Marilyn Monroe. They act like she’s the epitome of white beauty. But as you can see a “natural beauty” she is not.
Now if we’re discussing fake plastic women..you can’t leave out Kim Kardashian right? I know a lot brain dead black men like this no-talent whore but I’m not one of them. They like her because she sleeps with a lot of black men. It’s amazing that a woman can do a sex tape and make the cover of high fashion magazines. Only a non-black woman could pull that off. But Kim has a fake ass as you can see from this picture. And most likely fake breasts as well. She’s just a high class whore. Real men who have standards and taste know this.
But all this cultural appropriation is nothing new. It’s been gong on for many years. Even back in the day actress Bo Derek(above) was in the film 10(1979). In the film she wore braids with beads in her hair. She’s given a lot of credit for popularizing what we all know is known African hair style.
And just a few years ago socialite/model/television personality Kylie Jenner caused an uproar on social media when she posted a selfie wearing cornrows. Jenner is not much different than her older attention whore sister Kim Kardashian. They all seem to love stealing from black culture and have created a $450 million net worth from being wannabe black women. I have news for these no-talent media women. Just because you have sex with black men and date them exclusively does NOT make you honorary black women.
To put it bluntly…I think white women are seriously overrated. There are black women that are overweight but so are white women. When a black woman eats healthy and stays fit…no other race can touch her. Black women age ten times better than white women and other races as well. That’s due tot he benefit of melanin. I’ve even had white women tell me personally that they wished they aged as well as black women. They are secretly envious of the black woman’s body,hair and beautiful skin tone. The only reason white women are held as the standard is because we live in a white dominated society. Using whiteness as the standard of beauty is just another manifestation of white supremacy. When white women are elevated to the superior position all other races that deviate from that standard and are considered unappealing or unattractive. Black women should embrace their natural hair and complexion. There is no need to try to look like European women. They are too busy trying to imitate black women anyway. A sad imitation at that. Sistas have an unique beauty all their own. I leave you with a poem from Jennifer Asiedu. It’s titled About My Black.
“My black is flawless
I’ve never been this proud before
My skin never felt so good
Was I not used to it?
I can’t remember when I loved this shade so much
My color is dark and lovely.
It sings with a rhythmic melody of beauty.
My black is loud
It yelled at this pale-faced lady the other day
She tried to demean my black
And just as quickly as she did
My black screamed back.
My skin roared with elegance
Reminding you it is not afraid anymore
My black is loved
I rubbed it down tenderly today
Making sure to touch every inch.
Ever so gently it glistened and radiated
My black shimmers and still catches attention.
It’s been kissed and hugged
Yet still selfishly wants more
My black is hopeful
I’ve had a freedom that was honestly free
I’ve lived in a time when my black was OK.”
I almost did it. I selected a theatre and even looked up showtimes. As I began to mentally assemble my outfit and rework my schedule to accommodate viewing the film, I realized that I was all too familiar with this story.
Wonder Woman is yet another page in the consistent white female narrative designed to portray white beauty intertwined with an earthly anglicism. I need not see this film to know that it will portray the white Woman as the catalyst for all things good in a “bad” world.
Contrary to the ideally nurtured in the western world, the bad is seldom blatant. Both the individual and the collective have a fair chance at combatting that which they can see. The true “bad” in the world lies in Wonder Woman-like figures, whose embedded message seeks to uplift through depicting the very exclusivity that dominates the western hemisphere.
Wonder Women debuts in a climate that veils this exclusivity with the implication of “change.” Seemingly every film and television series has adopted the feminist agenda, avidly if not aggressively, feeding this fictive utopia to the masses. The film exists to promote feminism as the cure to all worldly evils, omitting of course that feminism is a worldly evil. Clad in a form-fitting costume with long and silky dark hair, Wonder Woman encompasses the conventional sexiness of a blonde with the rarity of a red head to project feminism as the height of femininity. Wonder Woman is a dark haired, dark- eyed white Woman–the pseudo “every woman” in seeming to encompass lightness and darkness simultaneously. What the casual gaze may fail to see, is that Wonder Woman resembles her target audience, and encompasses all her acquired audience wishes to become. Her dark hair provides a strategic contrast to her fair skin, painting the “Wonder” of wonder woman as encompassing the figurative light to societal conflict or darkness.
The wonder in Wonder Woman is that she embodies the antidote to all the world’s problems. She’s Helen of Troy mixed with Hilary Clinton–a savior to white women but a mortal enemy to the woman of a darker hue.
Western childhood functions similar to this film, painting the white Woman as Wonder Woman in far less attractive variants. From the abundant white female school teachers, to the tooth fairy, Mrs. Claus, every princess from Cinderella to Snow White, the white female body is a consistent figure of humanity to the western gaze. These figures function to embed into the black female psyche what “Superman” and “Batman” seek to implement into the general western psyche–that if you are white, anything is possible.
But as the young girl who reads these stories, attends these schools and watches these figures on television grows up, the fantasy of Wonder Woman vanishes into reality. Instead the harsh world eventually prompts the once naive black body to wonder what was ever wonderful about these pristine figures of their childhood. Although portrayed as the hero in fictive and real scenarios, the white woman is gradually unveiled as an inevitable villain to the black female body.
So, as a black woman, I know this film functions as erasure. I know this film functions to seduce me into a amnesiac state where I falsely separate white female action and intention from white male supremacists. From the white women who chase our black men than scream rape when it goes sour, or objectify our wealthy black men as cash registers, or reduce the quotidian black man to his genitals, to the white women who abrasively target black women at work, back to the very white women who tormented the black female slaves—this movie functions to force the black psyche to accept a white hero, despite centuries of white female villainy.
White heroes, whether male, female, trans, or what have you, are never capable of saving anyone but themselves. For healing is incompatible to the autocrat, who decorates their lives with the blood of the oppressed.
Therefore, the true wonder woman will never occupy a leading role in mainstream film. She probably will never make six figures and is unlikely to rouse a shallow gaze on the street.
The true wonder woman has probably yet to arrive home from her twelve-hour work-day, her twenty-four hour job as a mother, or full- time victim of white supremacy. The true Wonder Woman sleeps at night with a six-figure debt heavy on her conscious from daring to dream outside of the confines of systemic oppression. She walks through a neighborhood of businesses owned by any and everyone but those who look like her. She faces ridicule for her skin tone, her nose, and curvy body and faces countless queries if her beauty or attributes are deemed outside the scope of blackness. The true wonder woman is literally and figuratively raped, never respected, or rewarded. She is frozen in time, pieces of her flesh still floating throughout the Atlantic Ocean, or concealed in an unmarked grave beneath a skyscraper. She is dismembered by a system who uses her limbs to assemble their privilege and writes their laws in her blood.
She is the unspoken gospel of this poached land—the original statue of liberty—the feminine mold to which every race, ethnicity, and creed stealthy covets.
The Wonder Woman film exists to place the “wonder” into the woman concept. As a being excluded from this concept, I replace wonder with “black.” For the black woman does not need wonder, she is wonder. Furthermore, members of the black female collective need not go to the movies to view this fictive wonder woman—they must simply look in the mirror.
