8. "the bullshit"
In response to Reply # 1


          

yo quest-<BR> why in 2000 is it still acceptable to be ignorant about/ hateful towrds jewish culture and jews,in ways that are remisant of the stereotypes and beliefs that have caused so many deaths and so much destruction for the Jewish people. Even on these boards were most peopel usually seem like they know where their heads are, I see. I dont know if you were jolking about the substitution of Laura, but i was looking foward to this movie as a major experience.I was very eager to see how two of my favorite artists, thought and spike( spike is directing this, right?) deal with this issue. Its something real close to home for me, a very proud jew, a hip-hop fan and a new yorker.<BR> one<BR> text<BR> "one who forgets anything his eyes have seen has caused great injury to his soul."

That must be like some sort of a B-Boy Stance(see Vanilla Ice with arms folded across his chest looking like someone just stepped on his sunday shoes) only blacker.

Now look what he's gotten in...<BR>Ha Ha<BR>For all you new okayplayers who don't know, the best way to get at least 60 reponsesto your post is to question Tariq's role (and the jew's too)in Brooklyn Babylon...<BR>Forget Lara, I think they should use Mariah Carey instead. The audience would be too confused to critiscize... <BR>-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-<BR>March 28th seems such a long wait.<BR>You know how albums get pushed back?

Cause the black women on these boards care a little too much about who he's kissing. I'm not being sarcastic or anything, but please don't be so preoccupied with a film. I'm just glad to see a black man on the big screen where they aren't "afraid" to show him kissing a white girl. It's entertainment, that's all, nothing more. <P>SA-DA-TAY!<P>I AM BLACK MUSIC<P>"See what I mean? You motherfucking crybabies? Get in line punk!

he could do the movie in the makeup that Eddie Murphy used in Saturday Night Live, so he "looks" white? They could play that movie in the white neighborhoods.

That would be a dope movie...and change the plot...I mean why make a movie that causes controversy and makes people think about themselves? You could just make Mystery Men 2...daaaang, get the director on the phone and tell him WHAT'S UP...this movie is gonna top Titanic...I'm sure glad this post was made to help us all realize how stupid it was to make/see a movie with somebody kissing a woman of a different race...wow, I don't know why I never took offense to this before...I just want to thank you...as well as the three other people who posted this EXACT same topic over the last 2 months...really though, thanks<P><P>"Webster's don't know jack" me<BR>"CARROTS" me<BR>"The system is screwed" me

These are the same people who slaughtered our anscestors and threw them to the sharks as they died on the slave ships till sharks followed the slave ships for food. These are the same Motha-fuckas (yes i mean motha-fuckas (they fucked our great great great granMothers) ) who tore apart African mens bodies to show the other slaves what exactly would happen if they ran (and yes sometimes for entertainment) Why would any Brotha / sister would want to grace his lips on such evil.

You Have your Opinion I Have Mine, I Understand FUlly what Quest is saying, But do we really need to Show "Interracial relationships" on the big screen as if they will be "peachy Keen" in the end? I Mean seriously.....think about this.. How many "black Men & white women" I mean your average everyday brotha....can possibly have a interracial rerlationship with the chances of it working being over 50 % ? No major film has touched on the subject thouroughly... and for you to say they have is Ignorant moranic, and just utter bullshit.....thats like saying "teen summit" will ever talk about the sex in videos shown on BET affect our youth. Of course they wont... Because thats what makes the channel what it is. PERIOD. Open your eyes to the truth of the matter the way people are influenced these days another brotha kissin a white girl in the movies will lead to more brothas treating "white women" better then they treat their own. It's a known fact that black and latino women get the shit end of the stick anyway. Just listen to what comes out of your friends mouth and your girl freinds mouth "girl he likes you" the respone "oh he/she is black as fuck", but there is a window of oportunity for a white person? Logically does that make sense? why do women put perms in their hair? "the straighter look" "oh my hair is too nappy" but thats its original texture. WHite women do wonders tryin to get our texture and your gonna put the same chemicals in your hair that read on the back "Do not use while Pregnant could cause birth defects?" All these spawn from something as small as a misconception From a kiss on the screen. We need more movies to neutralize thgis with black women kissing black men (that arent corny) then I would be less offended to seeing a black man kiss a whitew woman. but until that day I stand by what I say.<P><BR><a href="http://ill-matik.8m.com" target="_blank">http://ill-matik.8m.com<;/a><P>the revolution has began<P>ill~est<P>"Elvis presly aint got no soul,<BR>Bo diddly is rock and roll,<BR>ya main digga on the rollin stones,<BR>He aint come up wit dat shit on his own~<BR>I guess thats the way it goes,<BR>Steal our clothes and try and say they yours~<BR>the same society that Pimps the hoes~<P>-Mos def ROck and ROll

In response to Reply # 42


          

The same man who'll diss a SISTAH FOR a white woman, the same man who will choose a white woman OVER a black woman, proved countless times over and OVER again, the same man who'll have his woman work before he does and call her a Bitch in the end to win a Grammy. PUHLEASE, don't make it seem like black men are all goodie goodie. I don't see no slave masters running around making niggas beat on they women! How many times have I heard from white men, especially those that work around successful black men (i.e entertainment, sports) "Why don't black men treat black women very well?" Uh, the "jig" is up (pun intended). Come on now. I realize many of y'all are new in school just learning the black power stuff, I remember it well, but slow your roll.<BR>IT'S A FUCKING MOVIE!!! Why NOT show it on the big screen. You mean lie so that folks don't see y'alls weakness? Give me a fuckin' break. Y'all are silly. Black folks fight for freedom and still use the same excuses to make up for apparent weaknesses that we've been given plenty of options to get over. I gotta get off this damn thread. Ya'll are makin' my butt itch.<BR>Tiny

In response to Reply # 51


          

First Of all Don't Generalize me w/ the rest till you know me personally. I never have and will hit a woman. Especially a black woman. Secondly I will never date or even associate with a white woman no matter my status, I will only associate in the business aspect of white people because I have to. You sound idiotic to say "because you just started school and are on this black power trip" WTF?! Once again I been in college probably longer then you have and have accomplished much more then most sitting here typing and posting on this board so dont make statements about what you don't know. I dropped out of High school @ 16 years of age when a skinhead @ my school killed my girlfreind and my cousin. I got my GED. Started taking night classes at Parkland Community College...I started going full time that following semester, and as of right now Im attending My first semseter as a Senior @ the University of illinois @ champaign Urbana. I will be graduating on time next year, and have already been excepted for graduates school here @ the university of illinois. I been talking about the same issues since the 8th grade. My mother is mulatto and my father being a 5 star general of the Black p-StoneRiders or BPSN. The second largest gang in Illinois other then Gangsta Disciple (G.D). I know all about struggle, and have had many Run ins with the cops because of who my father is. My mother put me On this "Black Power trip"......and I will be returning to teach African american studies so no this is'nt just a "phase" this isnt something I'm talking about to pass the time. This is what I live on a daily basis What I entrench Myself in knowing and reading, and soon speaking about. so Get ya facts straight and go scratch ya ass.

Did you realize that everytime you are posting to a thread - and I post back - that you are "associating" with a white woman?! *sigh* I can't help but find that amusing. .....<BR>Anyhow, you are demanding that no one generalize you - yet you are continuing to generalize others.... double standards are a mofo huh?<BR>I'm very sorry to hear about what happened to your family - that is a tragedy and it should never have happened to you.<BR>I personally am rather tired of being generalized myself and would appreciate a little mutual respect.

. . . Facts are based on experience . . . just like yours are based . . and sweetie, my Masters in Clinical Psychology is nothing to sneeze at but congratulations on your educational endeavors. Didn't think I needed a bio, but whatever.<BR>People are generalizing all over this shit . ...just cuz I play devils advocate muthafuckas get all excited, damn.<BR>Honey, many black people have an experience . ..most of the time we "relate" henceforth, it's inbedded in our culture (i.e. your mulatto mama, my mulatto daddy . . . my family used to marry each other to keept he fair skin . .howz that for institutionalized racism)<BR>But being a "person" and dealing with "people" does come with maturity and a sense of being able to handle a situation and your place in society. I'm a black woman, bottom of the damn totem pole. Don't think I don't make it a point to rub success in the white mans face . . .any where I go, i represent something that wasn't supposed to be . . . that's how I fight racism. But it took a long time to overcome and realize limitations and what was just their bullshit. And it ain't over yet, obviously. But going down the line to blame everyone for the state we're in is laborious. If enough people took responsibility for themselves as human beings, I bet racism would change a bit. We have the tools, we need to use them and demand that our voice is heard. I don't believe that a movie about racism and it's perils stops our greater good or our greater movement. The movie is about racism. Not Black Thought kissing a white girl. Check it first. Someone in your family was down, just like my white grand daddy. So don't front. Love a little brotha. <P>Tiny<BR>By the way, ain't nothin' like a good ass scratchin'. I suggest it to one and all.<BR>Tiny

64. "History . . ."
In response to Reply # 32


          

In James Joyce's 'Ulysses', the character Stephen Dedalus talks about awaking from the 'nightmare of history' - OK, he's talking about Irish history - but the idea applies to all history in general. You can't spend the next 400 years moaning about what's happened in the last 400. We remember it, we learn from it, but we have to move on as a society.<P>Peace

What does "bitch" act like? What does "bitch" look like? A woman? A gay person? I don't get it........................I'm not tryin' to start shit, but DAMN! Ain't no tsk tsk to do with it either.............you grown. But I hate hate hate it when brothers use "bitch" as a metaphor for weak, it's just not fair..........<P>And don't y'all be comin' back jumpin on my shit, either, i just had to get that offa my chest!

...about the use of the b-word even to mean "complain"....<P>(1) "Bitch" has other meanings in our day and time? Yeah right...underlying the usage of "bitch" to mean "complain" is the chauvinist notion that women complain too much...shit, where do you think the term originated?<P>(2) I would have said it no matter who posted that word, especially as excessively as it was used...<P>As far as Tariq "kissing the white girl" goes, my only real issue is the scarcity of black-on-black romantic films, but hey, at least we get to see a brother in a dramatic role where no black-on-black murder is involved...I would say simply that Levin did an excellent job on "Slam" and I expect "...Babylon" to be good HOWEVER considering hollywood's history of handling racial topics, some skepticism is warranted and justified. I think Levin, however, has shown he can sensitively portray members of different races in his work.<P>Peep "Slam". Good flick. i was an extra. If you can point me out, I'll buy you a taco.

Read what I said In "clowning is Meaningless" that is My Fault FOr making it all about the kiss............the kiss is just a misconception to uneducated heads about our past and everyday struggle. I'm not gonna be Url'in cause they kissed and that doesnt mean Imma GO out kissin white hoes neitha', but there are them cats lookin for that excuse to go be wit a white girl. Or to show what they are saying is right. It is not "a Step In society" because a black man and white chick are kissing on screen. WHat if it wasnt Tariq.......and some Bum on the street kissin some white chick.....these same peeps in here sayin "hooray!" would be the same ones with nose turned up. Or if it was me........a STudent @ the University Of Illinois @ champaign Urbana....a 3.7 GPA. Electrical engineering major....In the mall with a DOo Rag Under my hat........with My Braids sticking out underneath.....TImbs.....big Camoflage pants on....and a Ecko hoody kissin a Ambercrombie and FItch white chick.....they'd have something to whisper about. "I'd rather them be honest and say becuase he is a "star" its cool"<P>thats my word. I do agree about heads needing to know about making sure they don't get Assata from Cuba. Most heads don't even know who she is, and I thought Mumia was posed to be Executed In December of Last year?<P><a href="http://ill-matik.8m.com" target="_blank">http://ill-matik.8m.com<;/a><P>the revolution has been televised<P>ill~est

He's kissing a white chick. Dont see the movie. You dont make a difference. I'm going to personally see to it that every black man I know kisses a white woman by the end of the week. Oh My god!!! The horror! What will you do then? You're losing the battle!!<BR> I hope you dont take this the wrong way (I really dont care), but I notice that most chicks that complain about this kind of thing are usually pretty wack looking. Usually lonely, have a hard time getting men of their own. Bad attitude...and are Just about *always* single. Generally, they're just jealous of the white woman thats kissing the black man, because *They* (The woman complaining) dont have a man for themselves. You'd feel better if you went for a makeover and looked for a nice guy in the supermarket early in the morning (I hear thats a good place for a woman to find a good man.) If it dont work, just put up another post about Thought Kissing a white girl to make yourself feel better.

"DOWNTOWN inTERRACIAL COUPLEs HOLD HANDS"..--common. you have to understand a VERY large portin of the roots fan base are white kids..that's the reality of it, and perhaps they feel this way they cater to them as well..or somethin like that..who knows.<BR>personally i would have loved to see thought kissing a black female.. being with a black female.. i mean, WHY not?? we need to EMBRACE OURS and stop glamorizing love affairs with white chicks and making it uncool to be with our own..<BR>so it is a BIG dEAL who this CharcateR that we know as "black thougth" kisses or whatever in this movie..it's a reflection of us..where we stand as a people and what we feel is acceptable..i think this is just portraying a VEry Bad image..<P>"on a quEst foR loVe like the prOceed drummEr..inhale imagination and breathe wonder.."--common<P>"you want some more son that's when more come and drag a n*gga ERie aVenUe to OReGON.."

46. "Films=Literature"
In response to Reply # 45


          

One of the most intriguing themes of Amerikkkan life is race relations. The two main dynamics of the precarious situation America has been in for 400 years are 1) the Black / Black relationship, and 2) Black / White realtionship. What an artist or a writer or a director does is explore a theme. The writer of BK Babylon chose to explore, in this dynamic of the film, the Black/White relationship. Daringly, he/she even chose a Crown Heights Black/Jewish realtionship. What better way to explore American black/white realtions than to use an interacial couple as the focus?????? In exploring this theme a viewer has to decide whether he/she felt it was a good muse on the topic, or whether it was one-sided, unthorough, etc. Now, Illa Noize you're saying the same thing that Tipper Gore, the Christian Coalition, and Dan Quayle were. And it's censorship. Instead of worrying about whether or not your fellow african-Americans SHOULD see a black man and white woman in a relationship on screen, worry about educating them on how to evaluate a theme discussed in a film so that they can make their own well thought out decisions.<P>I know this thread has probably died out (four months ago!!!lol) but tell me what chall think. <P>"Fuck this rap shit, I listen to Classical" -Jaydee

In response to Reply # 47


  

          

For real, for real, Naz, you need to try putting yourself in the other person's shoes here...the black women who have issues with tariq kissing a white women are reacting to a historical phenomenom of successful brothers marrying/dating outside of their race...there are a whole lot of sociopolitical and economic issues involved that go WAY beyond "insecurity"...successful black men having relationships with non-blacks is the ultimate case of "taking money out of the community" (I say that half-seriously). And Tariq is considered somewhat sucessful. <P>To use another example, Reginald Lewis was the richest black man in America...he married an Asian woman...lewis died and now his business (TLC-Beatrice) is no longer a black owned one, but an Asian owned one...we can debate the socioecomonic ramifications of that all day if you want, but it's about way more than "insecurity", although that plays a role as well...not because the woman questioning it are "ugly", but because the socialized standard of beauty in America is Eurocentric (peep a beauty pageant for the 411 and try to find a contestant with natural African hair...).<P>Normally, I dislike racial discussions on this piece because there is rarely a true attempt to seek understanding...<P>Peace,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com<;/a><BR><a href="http://infiniteloop.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://infiniteloop.iuma.com<;/a><BR>DC hip-hop is on the rise...<P>"High grade when I create beats/if I don't get signed/I'ma be the most dope bum that ever walked the streets" - <BR>Aychell (HL, of Khemystery)<P>"If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's probably a tool of the conspiracy" - unknown

In response to Reply # 49


  

          

>I don't know any Jewish people who owned >slaves.. sorry.. CHECK YOUR CREDENTIALS..<P>Ummm...I would research that statement before I made it. There is strenous debate about the extent to which Jewish financiers helped bankroll some of the slave shipping companies...also, there is some historical debate about the *number* of Jewish slaveholders...I have never heard anyone argue that there were *no* Jewish slaveholders or *no* Jewish participation in the slave trade...maybe you can point me to some documents that stand for that proposition...<P>Peace,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com<;/a><BR><a href="http://infiniteloop.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://infiniteloop.iuma.com<;/a><BR>DC hip-hop is on the rise...<P>"High grade when I create beats/if I don't get signed/I'ma be the most dope bum that ever walked the streets" - <BR>Aychell (HL, of Khemystery)<P>"If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's probably a tool of the conspiracy" - unknown

62. "jews in the slave trade *correction*"
In response to Reply # 59


          

I was referring to Jews who carried out actions that Ill_noize stated:<P>"These are the same people who slaughtered our anscestors and threw them to the sharks as they died on the slave ships till sharks followed the slave ships for food. These are the same Motha-fuckas (yes i mean motha-fuckas (they fucked our great great great granMothers) ) who tore apart African mens bodies to show the other slaves what exactly would happen if they ran (and yes sometimes for entertainment)" <P>these people he's talking about are most probably (i wont say definitely) not jews..the prominence of Jews in America wasn't many at the time of slavery. And IF they did own black slaves, it was probably a Jewish man who converted his religion to Christianity when he married a Christian woman- and they probably raised their children to be Christian (there were very few women in America who were Jewish and many Jews had to conceal their religious identity anyway). But that's if you want to get technical. As for slave trading, even BLACK men, yes AFRICAN men, sold men from their country to America, contributing to slave trade..Men from Portugal, Cuba, Spain, etc. etc. contributed to the black slave trading also and sailed on those same ships.. and you don't see blacks hate on hispanics as being "these people"..or half as much hate when you see a latino with a black person.. And if it's because of the OWNING of slaves in America, then you can't criticize a Jew for it.. as i stated earlier..<P><BR>if you want to check my sources.. you can go to <a href="http://www.connerprairie.org/injews.html" target="_blank">http://www.connerprairie.org/injews.html<;/a><BR>for research on the settlement of Jews in America..<BR>or<BR><a href="http://www.bnp.net/spear28.html" target="_blank">http://www.bnp.net/spear28.html<;/a><BR>for info on race-on-race slave ownership and trading..<P>-cassandRa<BR>

it's a movie. It's a movie about being interracial. Therefore, ya gotta have 2 races. It's just a movie.

In response to Reply # 41


          

I'm fly and I cringe when i see a black man kissing a white woman too. I just don't care about this cause it's a movie. The issue is that black men treat black women like shit and tehn treat a w hite woman like a fucking queen. Like he puts her on the same pedestal the white man puts her on. I guess that's called "entitlement". Don't speak for us Naz. Just agre or disagree with the topic. You ain't even old enough yet to have an opinion. Ooh look what i done started now!<BR>Tiny

is why black women gonna get mad when they see brothers kissing white chicks, and they don't even WANT that brother! it's like chris rock said: when a brother sees a fly sista with a white dude, they get mad "baby, what i got to DO to get wit YOU?" but if it's an ugly sista, the white boys can have her. how come i'm always seeing black women saying that dennis rodman's ugly and then the very next minute, getting mad cos white women give him love and he takes it?

You are speaking of the "niggas" you deal wit. You Need to check ya'self if all you find are brothas who treat women wrong. Secondly. How can you be that bitter about a brotha Period. But not care to see him kiss a white girl? I mean as a people we need to get our shit together before they show shit like that cause "alot of brothas" are looking for that "excuse" to do it. and that movie may be the "excuse" they need.

Ay yo I'm down in Urbana too dawg and I definitely feel you. Heads on here act like the sistas ain't got no legitimite beef with the movie. We don't have the same circumstances to face as they do. We don't know what it's like to be considered to be at the bottom of the beauty totem pole because of your color. Most black women want black men for husbands and there ain't nothing wrong with that. Quest ain't keepin it right at all. We've got history with white america and it ain't pretty. Why ya'll acting like nothing ever happened to contribute to some black people not wanting to see the interracial thing on the big screen. It ain't that heads are being racist, we just haven't chose to act like nothing ever happened. Yo, to Ill_Noise and the sista that started this thread, "I feel you". There are too many la la land people on here acting like we ain't got nothing to be pissed at white america about. We've made some progress, but bad blood is gone be bad blood, especially if the wrong never tried to atone for their evil actions. Ill_Noise, i'm down here in Urbana from Harvey mann, hit me up at princenetmail@netscape.net

and make no apologies about it . . . If you'd notice I play both sides of the fence on this issue . . . I always get rammed for noticing white boys, whatever. And yes Ill noise dear I am talking about the "niggas" I deal with, who else would I be talking about? The bottom line is you stating that Thought on the big screen is just the "excuse" people need to start this tirade of interracial dating is stupid. period. Like it never happened in the first place. My beef is why is it such a big deal because Thought is doing a movie? A fucking movie? I want a man who ADORES me. Whoever that may be is the one. . .I no longer make excuses for black men or any one else . . .SOmeone mentioned Quest doing wrong based on who he dates. I don't see 1000 of black women running to knock his door down, just like I don't see thousands of "correct" black men knocking down mine. It would be fantastic to have a black man . . absolutely magnifiscent! But I know what I know. And if , umm let's see . . . Vince Carter came dropping some crazy lines and Jeff Goldblum came and showed me the sunset . . .I'd probably long for Vince Carter but not hte game . . .wait I'm lying. I LOOOVE Jeff Goldblum . . .Okay Ben Affleck and Vince Carter . . whatever you get my point.<BR>And now Naz, I won't get wrinkles about issues like this . . .not for another 40 years . . .just another positive about being black . . .the fly ass skin!<BR>Tiny

ahem<BR>In this world, lets say, black women have not generally had the good end of the stick. Not at the top of the beauty pyramid in our ethnic finest, "exotic" or "beautiful" usually when some other ethnicity pops out in our appearance...a little black ain't bad (see J. Lopez) but a lot is. and that's how it is.<P>And men, with their "I don't understand" selves, think .." oh, why doesn't she like me dating white women?" <BR>weyull...<BR> I can think of a few reasons why...while black women are so very often degraded and reduced to sex fiends and angry women in the media( you think i'm jokin, watch music videos for a while)...and black women have traditionally held the black community together, and then some guy APPEARS to value some other women who APPEARS to not have come from any background like hers...<P>I dunno. People always talkin about black men, it's like they forget black women at times. Patriarchal society we live in. We have names, feelings,beings...I know black men don't have it all wonderful...but it's not like it's SO easy for black women...it's hard enough being a woman..

If I hadnt lost track of time I wld have finished my message but i had to go to class. All those people looked at what I was sayin took it as an offense. Cried at lil stuff like "whte chicks". Come on now. Of all he Roots concerts n when they came to Levi's to help promote our new jeans Ive seen nothin but white peeps, and havent gotten any static. but once the concert is over, do yall really feel like we as people are still connected? Listenin to the Roots doesnt mean u have an inside view or feel what ANY minority people go through, once your cd or tape stops thats where our connectedness end, and reality comes back to u. The last role I saw a blk chick datin a white guy was with Lela Rochen n Mark Walhberg n she was playin a money hungry chick. Why hasnt George Clooney or Tom Hanks have a blk chick as a wife or as sidekick in their movies?, shit wesley snipes do. Damn I thought "Jackie Brown" wld open doors for an interracial relationship but if Foxxy Brown cant then who? Everyone cryin "its about time a movie like this has been made" duh remember Zebrahead? didnt think so. Nbushe Wrights career shld have taken off from that just like Micheal Rappaports career did. I dare anyone make a movie about a Jewish man from Crown Heights and a Black woman from Flatbush falling in love, then again yall would probably turn it into a comedy, so trash that.Like Malcom (yeah I said it Malcom) x said before we get outside help first we need to help ourselves first. And in the black community we need alot of self healing first, theres no dialogue goin on between blk chicks and blk guys, just like theres no dialogue between blk n wht people.And b4 we can start one with white people we have to get ourselves together. Dont forget white people have 50 yrs until they will become the minority, lets see what yall will think then. Check out Time magazine Jan. 17 issue if u dont believe.<BR>One, MahAgany

All jokes aside, I have the utmost respect and love for black women. Everyday I am frustrated with the way black women are portrayed on TV in movies etc., but i REALLY think that all these BKYLN Babylon posts are misdirected.<P>People have to understand that this film is done within a certain context. Its based on real life events in Crown heights & all the racial tension there. Yall really need to stop condemning Tariq and breaking your ROOTS CDs over a movie nobody has seen yet. It is a stretch to say that his character kissing a jewish woman is degrading to sistas. I’m not promoting interacial relationships (or condmning them). I personally like nubian queens but I’m not here to judge others.<P>Basically what I’m saying is why waste time crying about a flick when we have so much work to do as a people in real life.<P>peace<BR>incog

cuz we're going in circles...<P>Fact: Brooklyn Babylon is A MOVIE and I bet you don't even know the history of Crown Heights...<P>Fact: If you do not like what the movie is about, DON'T SUPPORT IT. Support Troi (an independent black film that shows black people in a sensual, erotic, sexy light. Hey no white girl kissing!), rent or buy Hav Plenty, rent or buy Rosewood, rent or buy Sankofa, rent or buy a black movie period. Buy a book from Nkriu(sp). Go to a black vendor and buy stuff. You have soooo many alternatives than agruing on a board about fiction.<P>Fact: Improv!? thinks that the folks doing the most complaining ain't doing shit to bring black folks into the forefront. Make your own movie. Teach a child. Speak with your elders. Read a book. Join an organization THAT WORKS. Complaining about a movie that hasn't even COME out yet is wack. Complaining about an ACTED OUT KISS is bullshit. Tari...oops Black Thought kissing a white woman DOES NOT MEAN HE DOES THAT IN REAL LIFE and if he does, WHO CARES? If you feel that strong about it, don't support! "Simple ain't it..." <P>Fact: this is a losing battle folks. When I say that, please do not think that I'm defeated. I saying redirect your energy. This is a concept WE as a people do not seem to have a firm grasp on...<P>Uno<BR>Improv!? (listening to "A Song for Assata" by Common and crying...yes it's that beautiful...)<P>"Stakes are high like my uncle is/ we both got problems, he never confronted his"---Common, "Time Travellin'"<P>Support Okayplayer.com and <a href="http://www.Boondocks.net" target="_blank">http://www.Boondocks.net<;/a> (for all you lazy mofos lol)
