Black People : Decoding Racism in Advertising

The movie "Something New" was a good one to analyze. I imagined that after this movie allot of Sistahs made a sub-conscious decision to date outside the race, or date White Men. Which is normally a goal of media, to promote sub-conscious decisions.

This movie reminded me of a spin-off of UPN's girlfriends. I must say, the writers, editors and directors of these propaganda films are doing a serious mind-*uck on Women. Not to say they're not getting us too, but everyone knows conjurer the Queen, win the game.



Ironically enough, in this movie Actress Sanaa Lathan plays "Kenya- Mc-QUEEN." Very interesting name when you consider the movie’s secret motive.


Like, the show Girlfriends, the movie arrests the logical side and intuitive side of the female brain. They do so by dropping information here and there. For example saying that "42.4% of all black women are not married". So during the movie, Single Black Women are sitting there saying - wooow, I didn't know that, what I am going to do? Well, the movie gives them a solution.



The show Girlfriends does the very same thing. They drop so-called psychology here and there, to arrest the scientific brain waves of Women, and then the show provides subliminal suggestions to those problems Women might be thinking about during the show.

No one really sits down to consider that 42.4% of the black women who aren’t married- shouldn't get married in the first place or don't want to. They also never consider how such a statistic can remain true since the stream of birth and death are constant, there is no telling what kind of Black Women will arrive or leave.

Then the intuitive side of our Sistah's brains are overloaded with sentimentalism, nice beautiful string music accompanies every romantic scene- this is how many of our people are seduced into believing things that aren't true. It’s the music.

Whites have mastered the symphony of deception thru string technology, the sounds represent the wind, breath- which all gives life. So every time the strings come on, be warned- your mind is being seduced. It’s like tickling the legs of a woman with a feather so they can open.

The funny thing about this movie is that Kenya did get a Black Man. It was important for the movie to place a successful Black Man against an everyday 9 to 5 White Man to see who “The Queen” would choose.



Ironically the White Male's name was Brian - a landscaper. Hummm, and this is precisely what this movie was for, to landscape the brains of Afromerican Women.

And once everyone was convinced of Kenya McQueen's love for this Man, the mood changes. All the Black people who where against it, are now for it. Even her well-to-do Parents, her Brother, and her best friends. Everyone breaks out into celebration because our Queen has found a White Man. Yip-ppee.

Its all about being in Love right? This is an interesting concept in and of itself. These interracial movies stress the love part when it comes down to A Black Woman being with a White Man. But when it comes down to the Black Man, where is the love? The Black Man and Woman need more than love just to get along, they need finances. So why is it that all interracial couples need is- Love?

It’s obvious to me that this movie in particular is talking about something much bigger. Which I don't doubt since the Writer also writes for "Everybody Loves Chris" which is filled with messages about black relationships vs. white relationships and people.

Kenya McQueen is a smart intelligent Woman, a brilliant accountant - good with numbers. In a sense she represents one of the greatest wealths of Africa that is overlooked- the mathematical Geniuses that come out of her.



Regardless of that, these movies don't add up.

We all know about the disparities between Black Men and Black Women. My theory is that these disparities exists not just because of higher Male deaths, but because Human families aren't migrating like they used to. All animals migrate to where the land is plentiful, why aren't Humans doing the same? Media can be blamed here too. The truth is not every Woman will want to get married, or have a committed mate for that matter. Some people are more attached to society or community as a whole rather than individual people.

But for all the Women who are looking for these commitments are they employing their freedom to seek? Not really. It’s funny that we import the foods we enjoy from other countries, foods that aren't grown here in America- be we can't seek out the Mates we enjoy? That seems strange. Maybe because media hasn't given us permission?

While we might hear about Brothas going to Brazil for sexual fun, or Terri McMillan flying all the way to Jamaica to find a gay younger Man, when she could've found one right on her block- there is really no sincere data suggesting our Black beautiful mates are all over the world, and the love you are looking for doesn't have to be in your Metropolis.

The Metropolis itself is giving birth to very strange bed fellows indeed. It’s like a Prison where everyone is forced to take what comes. Are there more Women that Men here? Ok well let's get all the Women to be together romantically. Black Men in prison- single Black Women running around, Ok- let's find Men from other races to be with them. All so the machine of the Metropolis can keep running and doesn't skip a beat.

Interracial movies featuring Black Women with White Men are trying to give an answer to a daunting question in the minds of most Black Women in America, since there is not enough Men to go around who will love me? Who will produce with me? Hey- why not that nice White guy who give me the eye on the store the other day. Why not Tom from the Mailroom, or Bob from Corporate.

I have news for some of the Ladies, White Men don’t want you because of what you are, they want you because of what they can “have” – they can have other Black Men look at them with disgust to feed thier White egos- they have some black vagina- a piece of Africa itself, and they can have Black babies. What a nice package.


Ex. Video Vixen Karrine Steffans started dating Bill Maher after her tell-all book
"Confessions of a Video Vixen" - in this book she gives details about everyone she's slept with in the Hip-Hop industry for money. She seemed upset about being treated like Real Estate...I guess she finally found the right buyer.
Took me a while to respond, but thank you for putting my thoughts into words. I can see the effect taking place evryday. It seems that these media creations depicting white boys with Black women are doing the trick. Magazines and media statistics about how f'd up black men are, i hear women reciting these notions daily. For the record black men have their own propaganda and white women media coercion as well.

I have always been baffled at why women black women fall for the "love" card.

Bill Mahr is a racist punk, he purchased a home with a lot if mileage of you read that book lol.

I hear Black men citing some of these same statistics. I also read where some Black men are even telling Black women to stop waiting, complaining, and being mad about Black men who marry white women. These Black men are advising Black women to go across racial lines too instead of hatin on Black men.

So I'm glad you're being fair when you say: "black men have their own propaganda and white women media coercion as well."

Insofar, as Karrine Steffans, I don't think she has any more mileage on her than many white women like Montel's hoochie wife, Anna Nicole, Pamela Anderson and countless other white women who may not write books but who use their bodies to go around the world.

And to respond to why some Black women don't travel to find and marry African men or Black men from other countries, many of them suspect that African men just want a green card so they can come to America to live, and unfortunately some of them do want to marry an African American woman mainly for that reason.

Illegals from all racial groups want a BW to "marry". They take advantage of the fact that BW have a low marriage rates and some quick cash; especially Continental Indians and Central American Latinos :rolleyes:

Wow, I didn't even know that!! See, that's why Black women really need to compare notes, so we can get the whole picture.

BTW: Happy Birthday, Miss Spicy!!

Mass what??

Hotep again...

OK..so while watching the tell-lie-vision earlier today...i saw this commercial advertising for MassMutual Financial Group.

I cannot find an image on the net and hope that you can locate it MetaSaience. It depicts a Man of Afreekan Descent entrapped in a bubble and a mirror image of himself speaking to him about all the things he wants. I remember a T.V. was one of the things. I'm thinking to myself...bwoy...they (advertisers) really on a role these days. Now I need to see the commercial again and be prepared to write more on what I'm seeing and hearing in this particular ad...yet..it was clearly "PROGRAMMING" the minds of the sheeple who consider it "just t.v."

In search of the image, I came across this:
MassMutual Financial Group today announced the launch of an innovative new advertising campaign, "Front of the Mind," that helps consumers move beyond just thinking ...the Frontal lobe of the brain which is responsible for Executive decision making functions!

Has anyone else seen this commercial?

btw...The effect of television advertisements upon the viewing public has been so successful and so pervasive that it is considered impossible for a politician to wage a successful election campaign, in the United States, without including a good television advertisement.

Peace truetothecause, sound like you caught a big fish. But no images yet, since the campaign just started, I would like to see where they are headed with this one. Obvious they are out-right playing with people's "heads."

The television commercials, which will run during high profile national sports events, national prime time and early morning slots, as well as on national cable and online, take viewers on a whimsical journey through the average person's mind. Each journey is about the thoughts that may occupy the back and the front of the mind, like "I'm hungry" or "World Travel," and shows how MassMutual can help people move life insurance and retirement to the front of the mind, often much to the surprise of the other thoughts. In each of the four spots MassMutual provides practical examples of how it can help people take the next step that's right for them, closing with its new tagline, "We'll help you get there."

"These ads do not try to scare people into action or entice them with visions of yachts, vineyards and vintage sports cars. Most consumers actually resent scare tactics and they simply don't believe the fantasies," said Edward Boches, chief creative officer, Mullen. "This campaign is based on the simple fact that people generally know they need to financially prepare for their future and MassMutual can help them realize the difference between thinking about it and doing something about it."

Peace Destee Fam!

How did I forget about Web Advertising?

Has anyone seen the banner ads saying things like: "Shoot the Rapper and win a free ringtone?"

Myspace.com as well as Blackplanet.com are running these ads. You will notice the cartoon Rapper in these ads look like:



We spoke about intentional Racism before. Myspace.com actually has 2 banners. When you are surfing obviously "black" pages on Myspace.com the banner will say: "Shoot the Rapper" but when you are not surfing black pages the banner will say "Snap the Rapper." The banners are different on different sites.

Just wondering if anyone has seen them too.

Is Vogue's "LeBron Kong" Cover Offensive?

Brother MetaSaience ... when i saw this image, Vogue's April 2008 Cover, i thought of you and this thread ... :love:




Is Vogue's "LeBron Kong" Cover Offensive?

Have you heard? There's a black man on the cover of the April 2008 Vogue. (Richard Gere and George Clooney are the only other men ever to be on the cover, reports Time magazine.) Vogue does not have a history of embracing African-Americans on its covers. Back in November, Portfolio's Jeff Bercovici pointed out that while 4 out of 12 covers of Men's Vogue had black men; when Jennifer Hudson hit the cover of Vogue last March, she was only the third African-American celebrity to do so, though the magazine was founded in 1914. But on the cover of new issue, Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James seems to be embodying ugly stereotypes about black men: The wild, savage, white-woman-obsessed beast.
