Hello Family, I recently watched this movie, 100 Rifles, that starred Jim Brown, Raquel Welch, and Burt Reynolds. The movie was released in 1969, at which time, Jim Brown was 33 years old (born 1936). I was really surprised to see a Black Man and White Woman in a "love scene," back in 1969. Oh my gosh, Jim Brown is oh so very fine in this movie! Raquel Welch said to him, in the movie, "You are my man. I am your woman, for as long as you want me." My heart sunk of course, seeing him with this White woman, but that's not the point of this thread. During Brother OldSoul's class on Sunday, many present agreed that the media (television, movies) is really pushing this Black Man / White Woman relationship ... in lieu of Black Men / Black Women. So i thought it would be a good idea if we all added the names of movies or television shows, that we're aware of, that feature such unions. Sister BlakLioness mentioned in class, that it seems Black Men / White Women relationships are being normalized, while Black Men / Black Women is being abnormalized in our psyche, with the presentation of so much of this. We need to share examples of this happening, where we're seeing it, and how often it's occurring. This will allow us to be more conscious of it, and provide an opportunity to reject these attempts to normalize this behavior. So ... if you know of movies, tv programs, etc., that feature Black Men / White Women in "intimate relationships" ... please share the titles and actors. What's the first American-made movie, that features a Black Man / White Woman (intimate) relationship? Was it Sidney Poitier and the Blind Chick, or Guess Who's Coming To Dinner (1967), or some other movie? This is not an indictment of Black Men, simply pointing out what's being put on us. I don't really watch a lot of tv or movies, so i'm sure i'll be shocked at all of the examples shared in this thread. Thanks Family. Destee ps ... i must mention the fact that Jim Brown was 33 years old during the filming of this movie. An icon in the Black community. A young Warrior. The impact of him gett'n busy with this White woman, had to be tremendous on young Black men, which was no accident i'm sure. I was really surprised that the White leading man (Burt Reynolds, no less), didn't get the beautiful White woman (Raquel Welch)! . .
