"She said, ‘Well when I was nine years old Star Trek came on,’ and she said, ‘I looked at it and I went screaming through the house,“Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there’s a black lady on television and she ain’t no maid!”’ And she said, ‘I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be, and I want to be on Star Trek.’ ” — WHOOPI GOLDBERG
Nichelle Nichols on meeting Martin Luther King jr. — "I said"I’m going to leave Star Trek because (I was going to say ‘because I have an offer to star in) …I never got that far” He (MARTIN LUTHER KING) said "You cannot - you cannot. For the first time on television we will be seen as we should be seen every day – as intelligent, quality, beautiful people who can sing, dance, but who can also go into space, who can be lawyers, who can be teachers, who can be professors - who ARE on this day, and yet you don’t see it on television – until now…" (—science-officer-spock)
Wait I'm confused, doesn't Egypt have Black and Arabic people like many African states (a state is a nation, an fyi to some of your followers, not you).?
People take exception to “Egypt is not Black Africa” because the entire continent is Black Africa. The only reason places like Egypt and South Africa are overrun with non-Blacks is because they immigrated there and pushed Black people out.
There is also an unspoken implication that the “good parts” of Africa are the non-Black parts and it sends the message that the most celebrated parts of Africa’s history in Egypt were not accomplishments by Black people (they were).
Through movies and media over the course of time there has been a constant “de-blacking” of Egypt as far as history is concerned and people take exception to that.
what do you think of black men who dates white women only because they're white above all else vs. a black who dates a white woman but at the same time still respects and finds black women attractive? is there a difference to you?
There’s a huge difference between the two. Black men that date white women soley because they are white do so as an act of dominance based on fetish/lore.
They are hoping to encounter some docile doormat of a woman that will give amazing blow jobs. They are hoping this white woman will also stay around verbal, physical, and probably sexual abuse. They are hoping she will also allow him to cheat, spend her money, massage his ego, and do so without saying a mumbling word.
The guys that do this are the guys that claim to be bulled by black girls in their childhood. They were victims of being black nerds. They were taunted for being smart, too light, too dark, to white sounding, not enough of a thug. They claim black girls have smart mouths. They are all on welfare and just aren’t in the corporate climate that they have now climbed to. Black women are overweight. They all wear weaves. They all have kids.
So their only escape was to white girls right? The brother’s are victims in this. Not like…you know, black girls were not harassed, bullied, and abused by brothers and sisters growing up in their neighborhoods.. Yet we better not stray from your asses or you get talked about to your face like Tamara.
There is a difference in falling in love with someone that just happens to be white and the black guy that is aimlessly seeking white flesh because they want a trophy to bully and fuck at the same time.
