I've been hearing a lots about this film Get Out by director Jorden Peele who was the other half of the comedy team Key & Peele on comedy Central who I always enjoyed. But Jordon has directed his 1st film; from what I'm hearing a insightful, layered horror satire on" Race & white Liberalism ".
Second video is a some what in depth review with Rhea Ban & Lakae. looking forward to seeing this film.
From my understanding the hit film" Get Out" kind of underscores the obsession non African people have with Blackness. This women is beyond silly looking, it hints at a very macabre fascination people of European decent have towards people of African decent, esp. Black women. very sad & scary indeed !
As to the 2nd vid, have been saying this all along, different communities will look out for their own first, immigrant black communities do the same thing, the Africa connection, yes there are AAs making that link and setting up shop in parts pf Africa, but no where near enough, it also do not help with this new fake nativism splashed all over Youtube and the internet as a whole, as in we are native to America or Israel ,but we ain't no African,
Again most of us do not hold a passport, or traveled anywhere out side the U.S or Africa in particular, personally I have a bunch of invites from my African connects to come and do home-stays from Kenya , Ghana, Ethiopia, Uganda and South Africa Egypt, a thing i'll do when I stop being a workaholic and give myself some serious downtime, one thing I have done on a subconscious level, when I travel I keep an eye out for things my host nation or communities could use, I may not act on it, but I take notes on it.
The third vid, look the woman have issues like Rachel Dolezal Woman who doubled down faked being black, changes name to Nkechi Diallo meaning ‘gift of god’ ywaan waddeva!! there are self hating or confused flakes in all communities including our own.
One more thing Nebsen, the blackfaced thing goes back to the time following the defeated Moors, so it do have some historical context on some level.
This video went virile a week or so ago. Many in the black communities are very upset about the treatment that this young Black women received. It brought back the conversation about Asians in the Black community esp. owners of Black hair products who are mostly all Asians.Remember Chris Rock did a documentary a few years back on the subject. It seems that the sister actually did steal something out of this Asian owned store, but the treatment was over the top for a pair of fake eye lashes.It shows the contempt that many Asians seem to have about Black folks, not only in America but around the world.It time Black people wake up & take off the slave mentality to deal with what is going on with other groups of so called minorities disrespecting them in there on communities.That's what I loved about the video I posted. The Brother brings it home about the issues. I was saying in the 80's that we could learn a lots from Asians about how to conduct business. What I hate is the predatory aspect that others groups have learned by the dominate society( Whites) toward the African American community. Every group uses the Black community as a stepping stone to better their lives, by taking in the old tropes about Black people being all criminals, lazy, & no good, dumb etc.
without the Black community they would not be here in the numbers they are; because of the Civil Rights movements over the past hundred years, here in America , including people of African decent from the Caribbeans & Africa. Our struggle has made America more democratic than it would have been without us for every one not just for Black people. But other groups never seem to really understand that. But now that Trump is coming down on many immigrants communities, every one want us, the Black community to stand with them in solidarity. Where were they in the days that we marched & getting the fire hoses, & our brains beat out of out heads ? You have had the privilege, & blessing to have traveled out side of American. I myself have traveled out side. In the late 60's & early 70's many of us had our passports, but now it seems not to be the case. Many Black folks are just beginning to think globally esp. the millennials Pan Africanism seems to be making a appearance back into the consciousness of a very few now, hopefully this will increase as time goes on, for we really need to connect with Africa on so many levels. That's one of the reasons Africa's Great Civilizations series was so important even with it flaws.
as far as Black face goes & the Moors so they are saying the Moors were Black now ? I'm sure Black face aways had context ar diffrent periods , but here in America it took on a very sinister aspect due to slavery
