INTERRACIAL ROMANCE THE NEW BLACK HISTORY MONTH TV TREAT

Swear to GOD!

Since Jan 2005, there has been an exponential growth in African American writers, actors, producers and directors. Couple of years ago, the creator of Grey's Anatomy couldn't even get a break and there were NO BLACK PEOPLE ON TV.


Last Black History month, shit exploded...it was like the networks were going hmm, diversity month, let's put this out...WAIT PEOPLE WILL WATCH PEOPLE OF COLOR?

And suddenly, Black People were the new black.

In March you can watch Black. White. On FX where two families actually trade races.

"Throughout the series, the family members submerse themselves in different environments and settings -- Brian lands a job as a bartender in a predominently-white neighborhood; Rose takes part in a Def Poetry class -- with insightful results."

What does thefayth think about this?


Well, funny enough I was actually involved in the project as an innocent bystanding poet chick, so you'll be able to see thefayth on TV telling you EXACTLY WHAT I THINK...but till then check out this insightful article by a white chick on interracial dating and the new "interracial" movie, Something New starring Saana Lathan and Simon Baker.

Fav Parts:

A girlfriend who looks like a blond goddess and is a self-described "typical, Ivy League, Upper East Side, married liberal" admitted why she initially balked at sleeping with a Nigerian fellow who worked on Wall Street several years ago. "I was afraid of discovering something really different about a black body," she said. "The hair grows differently. Skin has a big role and so does smell. I had a fear of the other. It's so clich‚d. The sex turned out to be an incredibly reassuring human experience."

Standing in the surgeon's bedroom, I was frozen with fear. It was one thing to be seen in public with him, but quite another to be naked. The darkness of his body was frighteningly exotic, so opposite my own fairness, which, by comparison, I suddenly perceived to be weak and wane. How would I touch his hair when I couldn't run my fingers through it? What if he was physically aggressive?


KUDOS TO SUPERNATURAL FOR THE INTERRACIAL LOVE SCENE OF THE WEEK!


It's a better Black History Gift than just letting us pop up on screen as bangers or civil rights legacies...oh wait, Supernatural focused on an evil truck that was killing black people...close enough I guess?

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
