Has Regina King Now Deceived Black Woman with Her Message?
As you may know, there was plenty of controversy regarding Regina King and her statement in mid 2010 about how she encouraged her black female friends to date ‘outside of the race.’
Many people went against her and many were for her. So we wonder what people will think when they hear what’s allegedly next on her agenda.
(That, we will speak on in a moment but we must cover some ground first.)
Regina King Wants More Color in Emmys But Dates White Men?
We found this statement that Regina King made about the Emmy Award nominees very interesting. Please read her statement (credited to The Huffington Post) and then our take below it.
Regina King says:
Why should there be no more black Hollywood? The answer is so simple: Black movie stars and celebrities are no longer proud of their heritage. We gave our African American journalists department permission to do this article, because it makes sense and people in the movie industry need to just call it Universal Hollywood, if not, nothing at all, just Hollywood. There all types of celebrities who are making the message very clear, that being black is no longer acceptable, whether if they are changing their facial features or just marrying outside of their race and because the majority have so proudly posed in front of cameras with their white or Asian spouses, there is no such a thing as black Hollywood. Therefore, there should be no more BET (Black Entertainment Television), BET Awards, 100 Black Men of America, BlackVoices.com, Ebony and Jet magazine, Essence Magazine, National Action Network or any other black affiliation, simply because these famous African Americans have misdirected the black community.
African Americans have been the highest cases of AIDS for several years now and if you have lived 30 years or more, you acknowledge the history of AIDS. These days, most African Americans have lived hypocritical lives, because they have easily forgotten how much AIDS has attacked the black community and it is very weird how they are easily adapting to bi-racial relationships. Of course, not all black people have been diagnosed with the AIDS or HIV, the disease that causes AIDS, but there have been thousands of lives gone because of the epidemic. The question is, why aren’t white people afraid to become sexually involved with African Americans? A lot of people who are a part of the interracial society do not understand why there are some black people who do not want to share their lives with someone white, Asian or any other race. It is simply because there is deep pain for all of the lives that were lost and are still lost because of AIDS. To a lot of African Americans who care about the subject of AIDS, it is not normal for any other race to desire a relationship black people, because the race has suffered the most while enduring a high death rate.
Regina King Gives Wrong Message to African American Women While Neo Soul Superstar, Jill Scott Sends A Strong Message
Usually, we do not bring African American celebrities into this blog who have not given us a positive reaction, but this time, we decided to do a post on Regina King, Michael Baisden’s sidekick. King is no longer a positive image for black women.
