I'm not sure if you've done this or not, but you should review the movie Smile (2005). It came out in 2005 with Mika Boorem and Yi Ding, the two main characters. The synopsis led me to believe it was about a WOC overcoming something in her life and she and her family would be the main focus. I was sadly mistaken. This movie is the PERFECT victim for you.
I don't know if this is something you can go off on or not, but he suggests that identity politics are the only reason black people vote for Obama, which to me seems like an assault on their intelligence.http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/01/13/blacks-for-obama-don-t-assume-that-anymore.html
Republicans telling black women not to have abortions because it's "genocide."
Ok, let's see. You did Dreamcasting and 4 Am to Midnight....You know you should do the same with a Action show (Similiar to Power Rangers, Ninja Assassin, Zatoichi, Akira Kurosawa)Like you start the topic with some selected actors or we pick our own. Similar to the last thing you with Dreamcasting and 4 to Midnight thing..But you pick the genre and theme.Set up:Genre: ActionPlot:Actors/Character Roles:Music Dream theme:Inspiration for you movie:and other things to add:like that.
You should go in on YouTube assclowns. I got 3 vids for you to destroy: Pregnant in Oakland Fight, Walmart Song by Mr. Ghetto, and Fry that Chicken by Miss Peachez (I know but bear with me). I think you'll have more ammo on the first vid.
Not long ago, you posted an article about Danny Chen's unfortunate death. There is also a story that is very similar to his, only this one involved a Black man and he died the same in the same manner that Danny did. I seen this on the NY daily News online section and thefuckinloudenstazns.com website where they have a link to it. On a lighter note, I was reading something in the latest issue of JET( with Don Cheadle on the front cover) There a short article written about an Asian guy and this Black girl has the highest honors of their class. in some township in Tennessee. It's a little better than what I'm telling you,but I just thought that it was worth telling and it's Blasian related.
How about Lil Kim and her ever evolving face. I can't stand her.Or maybe Nancy Grace's obsession with blonde haired and blue eyed missing children.Come on lines that white guys use.White people's fixation on Michelle Obama's booty.What else can be taken from us surgically. (Ex: Lips, "Brazilian"(eye roll) butt lifts, lip enhancements, melanotan (black in a bottle), ect. How the Wachowski brothers stole the Matrix from a Black woman.
Hopefully you have seen the video Shit White girls say to Black guys, if you haven't you must see it. The whites are up in arms over it and are crying that its "racist" *side-eye* Anyway she was on the Anderson Cooper show and totally told those women off :-D.
So many victims, so little time.
I'm curious as to what you think about the upcoming movie Red Tails and what George Lucas said about the problem of financing a black movie in Hollywood.I'm also interested in another upcoming movie staring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton (I forgot the name of the film).I'm with BPSFPTSD on the Nancy Grace thing. She's so insufferable, and it seems like her callers always love to comment on her children.Lastly, I hope you give your thoughts on the reactions from white people about Shit White Girls Say...To Black Girls.
Oh crap. Am I late to the party? If so, you can blow out the asshole of this POS show called, "Hell On Wheels", which include two, EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE poc actors (okay, Common and Eddie Spears) and then proceed to ruin those two characters for me, as well as the entire show. And surprise, surprise, they both get paired off to white women. One of them, happens to be whore. :/
OOOOOOOH! You have no idea how pissed I am about Eddie Spears' situation on that show. I AM FUMING! As far as Common goes. Meh.
I'm really kind of hoping that maybe instead of them using slutty white women, they'd use educated beautiful loving forward thinking white women so it'd be less insulting to a lot of people's sensibilities. Which seems to be common slutty obnoxious white women...for God's sake can we get an beautiful intellectual woman of ANY race for that matter instead of the typical. Come on... that does drive me crazy. Though I'm going to have to watch this show now just to see exactly how bad the match ups are now.
Oops! I realized how much I typed a little too fast on here and made a mistake. Again, the website is thefuckingloudestazns.com
Word on the street is that there's some tomfoolery going on over at Goodreads...authors are flaming readers who leave negative reviews.
I'm curious as to what you think about the upcoming movie Red Tails and what George Lucas said about the problem of financing a black movie in Hollywood.This one's got my pygmy sense tingling....
Well everyone said what I was going to suggest so how about African Sci-fi and Fantasy?Kenyan director Wanuri Kahiu director of short film Pumzi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3elKofS43xMis to direct Nigerian American fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor's book Who Fears Death? http://nnedi.blogspot.com/2011/05/concept-art-for-who-fears-death-movie.html
Total lurker, first time posting on your awesome blog ^^Tagging onto brotha wolf's suggestion, what do you also think about DeVega's response WARN to the comments made on the clutch article Clutch about the movie?
What about the "BWE movement?" Supposedly it's supposed to be about empowering black women, but from what I've seen a fair amount of the so-called movement just seems focused on marry white men and shaming women who don't.
I second ripping the BWE movement. Can we have a "venting" post? There's so many people, topics, etc..that I can give a massive "fuck you" to. With your permission, I would love to start? First of all, the white girls that are mad at Chescaleigh for her YT video can get a fuck you. You get called out on racism and the stupid s**t you say but wanna b**ch. Fuck you. That felt great. Thanks. :)
The blogs that cater to "the movement" are usually extremely elitist. Inner city black folks are to blame for all black stereotypes, which in turn is why non-black men are so afraid to approach/romance the "good suburban" black women. It's beyond gross.

I second the request for your thoughts on Red Tails.Specifically, what do you think about:1. Casting. Howard, Gooding Jr., and Ne-yo? *sucks teeth*2. George Lucas' self-congratulatory revelation that he made the movie on his own dime, and the condescending subtext that, because of this, black patronage of the movie is obligatory. And, if it's not tooooo much like shooting fish in a barrel...3. The insertion of the random white woman love interest that deliberately distorts historical fact. As far I know, not-a-one of the Tuskegee Airman was married to a white woman during the period in which this movie was set.
Wow...Red Tails really does seem to have people on edge.
Just as I thought. "Red Tails" did sounded too good to be true. Let's not forget that Lucas' "Star Wars" franchise did the following typical "Hollywhite" themes:Introduce a racist stereotype: Jar Jar BinksKill a brotha: Mace WinduIntroduce a traitorous brotha: LandoSo, yea, I think I'll pass on this one.
HELL ON WHEELS! There is plenty about this show that you can blog about.
PLEASE. This is also spaceinvadah, btw. But still, PLEASE.
Have you seen the racist white girls video that everybody on youtube is going grazy about? Basically, they're calling out Mexicans on it and saying other derogatory things about them. I think you've already covered this, but there still seems to be a trend of America=White America still going on today and hatred against any immigrants from South America(specifically Mexicans).
I agree with both Brotha Wolf and ShaSha LePerf. Red Tails would be a great topic and the BWE movement deserves to be ripped open for articles like this one. http://www.beyondblackwhite.com/bwip-one-thing-the-psychology-today-quack-got-right/
As an addendum to the Red Tails post...can you make a larger commentary on the whitening of WII? I mean you had units like the 761(African-American) and the 442nd(Asian-American) and the Women's Airforce Service Pilots(WASPs) and yet we still get shows like Band of Brothers and The Pacific that mainly stick to the all white all male narrative. I LOVE WW I/II stories, but I think they are only scratching the surface in terms of the many perspectives that could be explored. It's really frustrating.I mean if we can get a movie like War Horse, (which I loved by the way) which is about the experiences of a boy and his HORSE during WWI why is it so hard to make movies about minorities/women? I know they weren't in the majority, but if you can imagine the war from the perspective of a horse, surely......
@jean-beeI am not even going to click on that link the url says it all. Got right? Bitches be trippin
It's best you didn't. The article was bad enough, but the comments caused blood pressure damn near go through the roof.
You should definitely discuss red tails. Have you guys seen the IMDB forums. The racist came out in drives calling a Hollywood film "Unrealistic", "inaccurate", "false". See for yourself.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0485985/board/threads/
I didn't have an original idea when I saw this post and I still don't, but did want to chime in to support the idea of a Red Tails post. This also piggybacks on the comment I left about it on Racialicious, which is the fact that Hollywood is loathe to pair its black superstars who frequently play leads in blockbuster movies with black women. They seem invested in promoting the very facile idea that a movie where a black man is paired with a black woman is somehow a black movie (even though in many of those movies, the wife/love interest is just a peripheral character.) But yeah, very few of those movies and their plotlines have anything to do with "black culture" so it's a weak argument and it just seems as if both here and abroad, they like to promote the idea that when given a choice, a black man/hero/success story will NEVER bother with a plain old black woman. And it is SO ridiculous to act place a white love interest with a black man during WWII. It just didn't happen often enough to be done here, and I find to be an odd choice from a man who in real life is with a black woman. Why do that? And it just seems so disrespectful as part of a portrayal of a time when we really did seem to have each others backs SO much more than we do now. Shameful.
It turns out the one black female love interest was edited out of the final version:http://www.whataboutourdaughters.com/waod/2012/1/18/confirmed-jazmine-sullivan-edited-out-of-red-tails-toldja-so.html@AnkhWhat do you think about WARN's response:http://wearerespectablenegroes.blogspot.com/2012/01/introducing-red-tails-20-sassy-black.html
I have another topic since Martin Luther King Jr. day passed. Buzz feed did a list called The 40 Worst People and the way these people on the list disrespected Dr. King and his day on his day will make you physically ill.
That was sick *shudder*. I love the people who post that status and then go "But I'm not racist" or "No racism intended lol".
Did I mention the live action re-make of the beloved Manga Rorouni Kenshin? The casting was done RIGHT! No whitewashing here.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1979319/
I was happy as a damn high loon when I saw that trailer. If Hollywood has any sense left, they will pay attention and observe the positive fan-reactions.
You have no idea how I felt. I have the whole manga, and I have watched the anime. I truly hope Ghost In The Shell is next. Motoko Katsunagi is one badass female.
You guys are giving me a lot of good stuff!!!
Are we also allowed to post suggestions on your Facebook too?Have you done a post on Bollywood, and their so called "dark skinned" lead actresses? How dark skin in Asia is seen as something negative, and used as fodder for shows like Bidaai, Saat Phere, and movies like Vivah. How about how Mshoza lightened up her skin.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9y3s7qV_wzUand Beyonce yet again.http://www.eurweb.com/2012/01/beyonce-skin-lightened-photo-criticis/
Can you please rip into assholes who say that interacial couples and Marriages are bad; also please rip into people who say mixed children are bad. I know that one hits close to home for me; so it burns me up when someone says "Oh so and so is THIS AND THIS...so they're a mistake and should never have happened" ...oh fuck off assholes. It's like seriously stop being so backward and racist >______________< it pisses me off.
Ankh, did you hear about the kid that got beat up in Chicago? Apparently he was a "fresh off the boat" Asian that they decided to beat up because of some previous incident. Here are some links (including the video) about it: http://blog.angryasianman.com/2012/01/seven-teens-charged-in-vicious-beating.htmlhttp://blog.angryasianman.com/2012/01/disturbing-video-of-asian-man-attacked.htmlhttp://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhF2Xo2mpXl8eo3WXXAnd this guy discusses it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcMnwkrjTuk&feature=g-logo&context=G296a69fFOAAAAAAAdAA
Oh and to add on to my previous post, listen to what they are calling him: "Take that nigger!" "F*** You nigger!" "What's up nigger!"No matter what folks may say, that word will always be a hateful and derogatory word.
I wish all those people trying to 'reclaim' it, both POC and otherwise, would get a clue already.
Here's something else for you to rip intohttp://blog.angryasianman.com/2012/01/disturbing-video-of-asian-man-attacked.htmlVideo of an an asian kid getting attacked. Trigger warning. This is really disturbing
How about Chescaleigh, the woman behind "The Shit White Girl Say to Black Girls." She's causing uproar with this video and her commentary about it.http://blog.franchesca.net/post/16171022052/shit-white-girls-say-to-black-girls-is-not
Some folks from Slate did a review of the Red Tails movie. It contains spoilers, but the points are really interesting...and don't sound too promising:http://www.jackandjillpolitics.com/2012/01/a-red-tail-in-the-ointment/
I don't know if you talked about this already, but I have started to notice that certain types of men like to go to these BWE/IR blogs. Like these men are 'anti-feminist' I guess you could say. They seem to hate the idea of women being independent and can take care of themselves and hate that women today don't have to wait on men hand and foot. Also, these same men bash other women (usually women of their same race) to uplift black women, and the black women on those site praise them.. I just find it all disturbing.
The complete bullshit of equal opportunity employment! When it says... "women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply." Then... they hire the white male. Keep scooting us aside... pushing us aside... beating us down.
Maybe a spot on Antonio Banderas? I know that he isn't exactly [i] unappreciated[/i] but...I also found this really interesting interview on them.Or the difference in a movie advertised for POC's soundtrack depending on who's behind it. (Deliver us from Eva & Breakin' All The Rules Vs. every other movie that insists that a film with a black cast can't survive without hiphop or soul in the background)...K-Ci &JoJo retrospective?Blacks who like rock....
^As in those of us who have a love for rock music and similar genres
http://www.city-data.com/forum/world/348214-europe-vs-asia-continent-has-hottest-3.html <- I would rip these fuckers to shreds if I were. Yet again racism towards Asians and I think others is being demonstrated here. And I randomly stumbled upon this and when I read it; I kind of wanted to cry. How can people classify one race as all ugly or beautiful based on their nationality. It's hurtful and racist.
Why don't you do a review of the movie Chronicle....you'll reaaallly love.
I need to give you this as a topic because I have come a crossed some men that believe that based upon what a women wears that it is her fault that she is raped for wearing those clothes. Now that alarms me because it doesn't matter what a woman is wearing because every rapists triggers are different how are we to know that said rapist is around and what are and are not his triggers and how to avoid them...simple we cannot. And simply we are not at fault for them being monsters. However there are some men that are under the belief that based on what a woman wears that it's like she 'asking' for it or making herself a victim. I want men to be informed that it is never the woman's fault for being sexually assaulted, violently violated amongst other violence that can occur as well. And for women I want them to know that they are never at fault for what happened to them it's not their fault for being violated. I also want them to know that there are ways to protect themselves against an attack; such as martial arts/ self defense classes among other things. http://www.allkpop.com/2011/12/ali-reveals-she-is-a-victim-of-rape#disqus_thread here's a link of a woman who had her song banned due to the fact that it was a song about rape; it got blocked because some girl got raped violently and it was a controversy. And basically the song writer also admits to have been raped as well and that the song was based on that and how her parents told her to keep it a secret. I figured this might interest you as this is a woman's issue.This is a big issue and I figured this counted under women's issues. I also thought this may be of interest to you as well; Thank you for reading this.
