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?

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

NYC in support for the Malaysian LGBT community following recent violent hate attacks

FROM THEFAYTH'S MAILBAG, A NOTE FROM LGBTQ MALAYSIA

"Since last Thursday, September 27th, for three consecutive days, the streets of NY were painted in pink as a sign of support and solidarity with the LGBT community in Malaysia, as many supporters and protesters gathered in front of Malaysia's Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir Mohamad's hotel who was in NYC for the United Nations General Assembly.
Behind this initiative and the protest is a group of former Malaysians, volunteers and activists based in NYC, who felt that as the hate campaigns against the LGBT community are raging through Malaysia, the only hope left for the members of that community is to turn to the West and ask for its support in their struggle.

3rd day that the streets of NY in front of Dr. Mahathir’s hotel were painted in pink as a sign of support and solidarity with the LGBTQ community in Malaysia that is under #unacceptable violent attack after he declared that Malaysia will not accept their rights…
