In the New York Times TV section, veteran iSteve Content Generator Salamishah Tillet, professor of African-American and African studies and creative writing at Rutgers University, Newark where she teaches a class on “Black Rage,” brings us up to date on the important cultural trend in her favorite romance shows:

Interracial Romance, With Black Women as the Stars
In “Insecure,” “Love Is Blind” and “The Lovebirds,” these leading ladies are pushing back against dating bias in the real world.

By Salamishah Tillet
May 22, 2020
Updated 1:34 p.m. ET

… The Molly-Andrew relationship is part of a larger cultural trend in which black women, especially those of medium-to-dark-brown complexions — long positioned at the bottom of the aesthetic and social hierarchy in the United States because of racist standards — are increasingly appearing as leading ladies and romantic ideals in interracial relationships onscreen. In some cases, these are works created by black women themselves, like Rae’s “Insecure.” …

Ultimately, none of these interracial narratives can make up for our country’s violent racial past or the way that history continues to plague us. The trend remains mostly symbolic, with black women still on the lowest rung of the socio-economic ladder. Every once in a while, however, these fictionalized romances and reality show couples give us something to cheer for: a happily ever after in which the male partner acknowledges and begins to unravel his own racial privilege, not just out of love, but because it is the right thing to do.

    I wonder if any of the recent cultural conservatives and revisionists of the post-WWII American cultural scene has written a good book on the enlistment of daytime TV soap operas in the selling of the cultural revolution to American women. The normalization of casual sex, divorce, homosexual lifestyles, etc. seems to owe a lot to these topics receiving emotional moving, persuasive presentation on the soaps.

    Sorry, but black women can blame their own men if they aren’t considered pretty enough to play the love/lust interests in Hollywood. Black male stars demanded and got mulatto women (most of them the daughters of white mothers) to play their supposedly “black” leading ladies or sexual interests in movies, TV and videos. This practice can be so ridiculous that a black male will be paired with a woman white enough to play an Italian in a “Godfather” movie and we are supposed to sit back and be “color-blind” about it, pretending that the women are “black.”. If black males WANTED to play opposite women as black as themselves, Hollywood would have accommodated them.

    This author emphasizes an essential aspect of modern marriage, one which cannot be discussed enough: marriage as therapy. But not the one-on-one form with Freud as paradigm. Rather, the Marxist-style (and prep-school style) confession of ones sins and acts of bourgeois unconsciousness to a group. I’m not sure if this would involve a group of mixed-race couples, and what activities, if any, would transpire after the round of group confessions. If I were good at this sort of thing, I would make up my ow religion.

    Sally Hemings was 3/4 white (the daughter of Jefferson’s father-in-law).

    The only known descriptions of Hemings come from another slave at Monticello, Isaac Jefferson, who stated that she was “mighty near white … very handsome, long straight hair down her back,” and Jefferson biographer Henry S. Randall, who once recalled Jefferson’s grandson Thomas Jefferson Randolph’s description of Hemings: “[She was] light colored and decidedly good looking.”

    So, while blacks foolishly claim Hemings as an icon and black women imagine resting their kinky heads on the breast of the great TJ, the truth is very different.

    Yeah, but how many different baby mamas? Do you have an excel spreadsheet to keep track of those.

    You might scoff, but I’ve long harbored the opinion that one ultimate aim of all the so called ‘equalities’ and racial preference legislation, rules, culture, mores etc, that have plagued the USA since the mid 1960s is to legally force, under duress of government sanction, white men to marry black women.
    You might laugh and dismiss it, but just think how the American state has shamelessly and obtusely intruded itself into individuals’ intimate and private behavior, personal choices, preferences etc etc whenever to twin dogmas of ‘race’ and ‘equality’ can possibly be inserted by a complainant, and white people are the subject of the complaint.

    Sorry to be crude, but if you are a white man and ‘equality’ is concerned, the US government, far more intolerant, tyrannical and intolerant than anything Stalin, Hitler or Mao ever devised, won’t even let you shit in peace.

    And coincidentally, many African-Americans have Irish surnames. This doesn’t exactly make much sense, as most Irish Americans didn’t own slaves in the 19th century. It’s understandable that many African-Americans would tend to have Scots-Irish surnames (as many of them do in addition to having Irish surnames), but that is a strange phenomenon.

    Like, how did they get Irish surnames if their ancestors’ masters weren’t Irish themselves?

    The truth is, that the science (e.g. DNA regarding Hemmings’ children paternity) is far from settled. This was all brought to a head by Fawn Brodie’s 1974 biography on TJ. The one child of Hemmings was exhumed. The DNA tests showed that TJ in fact was NOT the father. There are other historical primary accounts that give credence that if anyone was the father to Hemmings’ children, besides other slaves, it would’ve been TJ’s nephew Randolph, who tended to hang out with slaves, make music and dance around, unlike his more reserved and much older uncle.

    Something to consider: In his will, Thomas Jefferson freed all his slaves, except for…Sally Hemmings.

    In July 2022 the Abrams Administration promulgated the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Coupling Rule pursuant to the Fair Coupling Act. It requires white women and men which receive, directly or indirectly, Federal money for any reason whatsoever to examine whether there are any barriers to fair coupling or mating practices that promote bias based on any protected class under the Fair Coupling Act, and to create a plan for rectifying fair coupling barriers. The intention is to promote equal mating opportunities and level the playing field so that all communities may experience the quality romance and amenities that are important for marginalized pulchritude’s self-esteem. Civil rights groups have hailed the rule citing decades-long patterns of government-sponsored segregation and discriminatory practices, while conservatives have decried it as “social engineering.”…

    I remember a piece on PBS where some black woman was complaining about the racial implications of the fact that an interracial couple she knew (a white man and a black woman, I believe the woman was her friend) had decided to have a “plantation-style” wedding.

    Implied in the story was that the husband was unaware of his privilege and of how insensitive such a theme for a wedding would be.

    Not considered was the issue of which member of the couple was almost certainly the one who chose (and indeed, who cared) what the theme of the wedding was and who probably did 90% of the planning for the wedding.

    No, the dates of birth point to Tom’s brother. Tom was typical of the 18th century lord of manor, social distancing even of good looking quadroons was ingrained. Breeding with slaves would ruin a man’s place in the social scene faster than all else, and women of that class would be damn sure that it did. Black historians love to think TJ and Sally had their thing, proving at the same time that we are really all the same and also that white’s raped blacks. Tom didn’t refrain because he’s sainted and carved on Mt. Rushmore but because as a man of his time the act of screwing a slave was repugnant to him. This too is a sin of course in the 21st.

    This is a common misconception.
    Although relatively few in number, and subject to religious discrimination, there were well-to-do Catholic families in Ireland during the time of British government.
    The notion that all Catholic Irishmen were hard scrabble peasants, without a professional class, landowners and tradespeople between them is simply false.
    It goes without saying that priests were recruited from ‘good’ families, for example.

  110. This is a sensitive topic & I don’t think much reliable stuff had been published on it (mostly, people lie or succumb to stereotypes). My impression, and I could be wrong, that on erotic level:

    * romances, and I mean really romances between blacks and whites are extremely rare

    * with regard to physical attraction, which could grow into something deeper or lasting:

    a) white men desiring black women? Very rare

    b) black women desiring white men? Very rare

    c) black men desiring white women? Common, perhaps very common

    d) white women desiring black men? Hard to assess, but neither very rare nor common. Probably rare, but common enough. Category d, as different from categories a, b and c, has many elements of fetishism, media brainwashing and virtue signalling (narcissism and conformism).

    Steve did write a good article about IR attraction (black males statistically more “masculine” than whites & Asian females more “feminine” than white females), but there is, I think, more to it (media influences, different cultures’ reactions to visually alien “others”, increase of general promiscuity in a culture etc.).

    And one should not overlook that in many relations between sexes there is a strong element of psychopathology. I would say that female masochism is more widespread than male sadism. Just consider this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Pantoliano

Lewarne Jackson might be giving the impression to the media that he has a say in running the show (and Mr. Glickstein promotes that) which shows “black empowerment” is practiced in Hollywood and makes Mr. Glickstein and Mr. Cohen look good in the eyes of Liberals and government.

    Women should have never been given the voting franchise. Before the feminists come out in droves, hear me out.

    During the time of slavery, the slave owner or his overseer would “introduce” themselves to their newly-acquired slaves by punishing one male slave brutally for committing a minor infraction in front of the slave women.

    After witnessing this, slave women did everything they could to keep their male slaves in check, making the male slaves “behave themselves”. They did not want to see their brethren punished, so they exerted much control over the slave community. This is one of the oldest “psychological tricks in the book”, and was used to good effect by slave owners..

    Fast forward to the present-day, where black males use the oldest trick in the book to procure white women–guilt. “You won’t date me because I’m black”–the proper response SHOULD be “That’s right, I don’t date outside of my race”. Instead, weak-willed white women fall for the “siren song” of “racism” and submit themselves to blacks, destroying their genetic future in the process.
    I realize that there are good, strong-willed white women out there, BUT there are too many who are not.

    The voting franchise should be limited to property-owners, heads of households, current and former military and veterans, those who are financially responsible, and retirees. Excluded would be those on the public dole.

    The ‘hoax site’ you’re referring to is the site of the museum at Monticello. Their docents can be pretty funny. You half expect them to tell you Jefferson’s noodling around in his basement anticipated high-energy physics by 150 years. I suspect they’re on the level with this.

    I like my coffee the way I like my women. Hot, black, and picked up at 7-11.

  158. Hasn’t Shonda Rhimes been pushing this stuff on her Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder ABC soap opera night time shows? How effective has that been in promoting BF & WM couples? I haven’t seen any in the past few years in Chicago.

    Norman Mailer had 8, as has Mick Jagger as of this post.

    Leonardo di Caprio should have impregnated a large number of young models by now, but how many kids does he actually have?

    Not an expert, but when I watched YATR with the presbytera I never really saw casual sex of the meet a stranger at the bar and go home that night variety. And YATR resisted fahggots and inter-racial for a long time… longer than did prime time TV.

    The divorce is mostly plot-driven. Its darn hard to keep a soap going as long as they want it to if your most popular characters only get married once. I’ve always found soap operas “more real”, in both dialogue and plot, than their prime time TV “serious” counterparts … and less propagandistic.

    The Monticello Foundation may not be a hoax site, but they rolled over on the Sally Hemmings bs years ago and now all her peeps are invited to TJ’s parties. Disgraceful.

    With so many colleges switching to online classes, and so many colleges and universities will go bankrupt – we can hope that one consequence of COVID-19 is to effectively destroy the American college system. Make it Darwinian. Only practical classes survive. i.e. agriculture, accounting, and such. All the other stuff can be self-taught. Read Plato on your own if interested, etc.

    Not sure what their invitation list is; seems an occult bit of information. Some of Hemings’ children were sired by Jefferson males, though not provably Jefferson himself. Has the foundation been putting out pamphlets treating his paternity as established fact?

    If you say so. My mother didn’t care for them or watch them. Based on the bits she’d seen, what hit her was how opinionated and officious the characters were in regard to each other’s domestic lives; she’d never had friends like that.

    What perplexes one about soap operas is that the actors, writers, &c can produce the amount of content they do. They have to produce about 250 episodes per year. I once saw an interview with a retired actress where she discussed the production process of a 1/2 hour prime time comedy. She said in her time (ca. 1971), generating a half-hour episode required four long work days.

    I overheard a middle-aged character actress talking about getting hired by a soap opera to film a three episode story arc. She was highly impressed by the efficiency: she arrived at 8am and left by 10am, with her contribution to the 3 episodes in the can.

    I remember when Eddie Murphy was on a talk show a long time ago and he said he would only date black women and the audience cheered.

    Leonard Nimoy was once interviewed and the subject turned to his spot appearances on Dragnet in the 1950s. He said Jack Webb’s outfit, Mark Vii Productions, had one imperative, and that was to keep production costs to a minimum. He said you didn’t have a clue what was going on in a scene because different parts of the dialog were filmed separately. They also did not re-shoot whole scenes. The direction was, “OK, we’ll move back one line and…”. Not a lot of art to it.

    Jagger might not be done. For some women, getting knocked up by Mick Jagger is probably a good career move and a good reproductive strategy.

    Maybe if black women lost some weight off their booty they could land a white man. A lot of white men would go for a nice slim ass negress.

    Of course, Eddie’s Black paramours tend not to be completely anthracitic…..

  173. You know, as much as you all have been over-analyzing and over intellectualizing in these comments, you all have ingnored one important thing:

    A male’s deeply held beliefs and convictions can very easily get tossed out a window when he gets offered vagina. At that point, black women suddenly aren’t so unattractive to him.

    Here in the Bay Area, that is not much of an issue. If you have a fear of that happening, but prefer a bit of coffee with your cream, move here. I know many half Black people and they love their white parents.

    Absolutely! Same for Clint Eastwood. He still has the great genes.

  176. Michelle says:
    @Pericles

    I never thought of that. Though, he has a lot of money to support kids, he has no talent nor good looks to pass on. I liked him in Once Upon a Time, but he is no great shakes in the acting dept. Tiger Woods, however, has talent and should have more kids. He should have had a few with Lindsey Vonn. Clint Eastwood is still good for a few more. He has looks and talent to spare.

    I just can’t stand this. Blacks want so badly to mix with White Supremacists. My definition of RACISM: The desperation of non Whites to live around and off of White and if possible to mix with Whites. White people who oppose this are racist. There are dozens of quotes from Jews about how all the races will mix and there will be one brown race in the world. Except for the jew of course who will remain jewish.

    This will get lots of promotion.
