it's amazing many aaw don't see or wanna see the obvious stereotype. but for irbw any ir image becomes a source of validation. so how does it feel being attached to the most pathetic and desperate woman on the planet?

DISASTER LOOMS,

I have to admit that some sistas on this thread actually disagree with the way Kerry Washington's character is being betrayed. Most logical sistas don't get caught up in media hype, only the ones with low self esteem that need a "Scandal" type character to give them hope. I could never understand why poor and uneducated black women watch show about a life they will never attain. Logical educated sistas know how hard success is to come by and don't have time to fantasize.

Most of the Mid East has been of Eurasian indigenous genes, for thousands of years even then, and it still is, proven by DNA of those living there today AND proven by DNA tests taken from those who lived there thousands of years ago. You're grasping at straws, which Euro and Afrocentrics do all the time.

Look at these Fayum mummy paintings from around the time of Jesus' birth, not long after, in fact, and this was EGYPT, not even Israel:

So they were painted around 70 A.D. but they were there much longer than that before the paintings were made of themselves.

there are some real sisters out there, but to be honest i don't think they represent the majority. i don't think there's ever been a time in america where the aam has had his own woman. slavery jim crow and non-stop manipulation has created a permanent wall between the two.

you would never see native american women romanticizing over wm, as and expression of media popular culture, or jewish women doing the same with german men. and have german women flock to these images. if you ever saw anything like that you might think they were crazy.

and this is why the aa experience is more insidious, cuz you're never allowed to heal rebuild and move forward. slavery can be defined by the loss of one's woman, and until the aam can honestly claim his woman spiritually and mentally, he will forever be a slave.

Look fool this is hollywood. Hollywood treats black women, asian and white women entertainers about the same. What unattract, extremely tall or just fat white women do you see playing the love interests of successful men? Monique and the one who played her daughter are not ugly women, they are just too damn fat! Do you see Hollywood knocking down white actresses like Melissa McCarthy's door or Asian actress Margret Cho's door to give them leading roles as lovers of successful men either. So do try to get unstuck from stupid!

you can't be serious. there are few places in the ancient world that's experienced more back and forth migration and mixing than the mideast.
https://sites.google.com/site/haplo4862/count...

click on the various mideastern countries. if it's not J it's likely migrating from somewhere else. and not all J is mideastern. then click on a country with little migration like ghana or japan.

the constant flow of populations in and outta the mideast is clearly reflected in the dna.

For the record, Kerri Washington the actress or the black woman with the predilection for white males is and should not be the focal point of this exchange; afterall, she is but an actress interpreting a script and represents but one black woman insofar as her personal romantic choice is concerned. The issue at hand, the issue that is troubling is the collective cognitive dissonance of those black women who incessantly bemoans societal disrespect of them as a group and the nefarious depictions of their images, yet, simultaneously and enthusiastically support cinematic depictions of the very same images they claim to be an unfair and gross mischaracterization of who they really are.

I am confounded by the justifications given by some sisters as to why they not only take no issue with this depiction, but fully and consciously participate in the further exacerbation of their image by being complicity in the commercialization of what the world believes to be social pathologies endemic to black women alone; via the perceptions derived from reality TV shows. Of course I understand that all sisters are not party to this offense, but it does shape and give form to the perceptions of those who are culturally uninitiated as well as those who are already bias and prejudice against black women without cause or personal experience.

This is particularly confounding because we have seen sisters raise their
voices in protest in the past when they have disaagreed with their portrayal or when they decided that some black male actor who dates or marries non black in their personal life deserves their collective admonishment. This inconsistency, in my opinion will only make others turn a deaf ear to the legitimate protest of future unfair depections.

Stop trying to claim the Jews were black. You're not going to win.

Just give it up.

DNA, historical documents, PAINTINGS, etc., all point to real, indigenous Eurasians looking like those in the Fayum paintings (around 70 A.D.).

The End.

Of course, most will offer the standard refrain of either "white woman do it too" or "you black men are similarly afflicted" because bw are unwilling to have or allow any critique of them to take place in isolation without interjecting someone else as a mitigating factor.

The negative cinematic images of black men are also contributors to how we are perceived as well, however, bm, FAR MORESO than bw are portrayed in a far greater cinematic range as well as positions in real life than are bw, which preemptively fosters a wider consideration of bm's eclecticness and possibiity by those with limited interactions with blacks in real life who rely wholly upon television programming to tell them who we are.

I have seen bm portrayed as psychopathetic, ne'er do wells thugs, but I've also seen us portrayed as President of the United States before Obama (see: the show 24 where a bm was twice president which undoubtly conditioned Americans for Obama) to seeing bm portrayed as Chairman of the joint chief of staff to CEO of multinational conglomerates and various other positions of power.

This coupled with the reality of bm occupying these rolls in real life gives us more operational latitude in combatting those images of us as " uneducated, oversexed, ne'er do well thugs." Black men have been CEOs of Time Warner, American Express and Merrily Lynch, coupled with our dominance of the sports world and the idolatry of athletes, enables us to a greater extent, to move beyond the nefarious monolithic depictions that some have ofus.

Also, we are less affected in the social realm, despite what some of these cookoo birds on here try to propagate because one, we are judged by a different stand than woman are, and two, men do not occupy the role of the passive one waiting to be romantically solicited. I say all of this not to compete with bw, but rather to underscore the point that bw must be the guardian of their own images because those images are distinct in form to all others; so the "they do it too" defense will not suffice because of how we are all isolated with different modes available to each of us as a group to counter these perceptions of images.

fine enough to be a wm's bed wench, for her prime-time viewing audience of irbw? i have to imagine that many bw would hate seeing the wm lose his spot and experience the ascension of the bm. which is probably why the aaw producers couldn't cast a bm in the alpha male role, even though our current potus is aa.
when this flips, deal. and i promise you it will very soon. at the top of the list will be jezebel and the homos.
Another seething kneegrow that is upset because BW are doing their thing in Hollywood.

You do know that Don Cheadle is bedding a different WW every week in "House of Lies" don't you ???

Stop competing with BW over who is being featured with whites in the media more.

WW play sexy skanks all of the time. So, now black actresses are supposed to be "super picky" over the roles that they choose to play now ??

If Sharon Stone can show her hairy crotch in "Basic Instinct" and if Julia Roberts can be a ho in "Pretty Woman" and earn awards for this..........Why can't BW show their versatility in the roles that they pick ???

Stop trying to restrict BW to "Goodie Two-shoe" roles and guilt them into only picking roles where a BM is the leading man or love interest..........

Especially if you are not willing to impose these restrictions on black male actors.

SMH..........

as previously stated, I only see two types of bw, those who look forward to the ascension of the bm, and those who fear it.
Jezebel image my azz, and stop ACTING like you are concerned about BW's image..........because you're not.

You are just upset that BW are being marketed to non-BM.

I bet you don't feel this sense of opposition when BM are being marketed to Non-BW..........

aaw can be divided into two groups. those who can't wait for the ascension of the bm, and those who fear this like nothing else. you know who you are.
concerning shonda. no bw would tolerate a similar situation of a aam producer ignoring one of the most significant events in aa history, by casting a white first lady next to a black president. while also going outta his way to make bw look stupid and pathetic at the same time.
if your mind can't process something this base, i don't know what to tell you. but to be sure shonda and her like-minded sistahs, aren't gonna be very happy after the flip.
The ascension of the BM ???

Well, for starters, BM will have to take their dyck out of their hand for this to happen..........because, you see,

You will need both hands to climb up the ladder !!!!

Secondly, before you jump all over these black female producers for casting these white male leads..........

Please spread this message to the young black male hip-hop artists who seem to be allergic to black females:
