What’s it like to visit Africa or the capital city of Johannesburg in South African? Looks like it’s pretty modern and hip compared to the United States. And just like the United States, black hair is big business, with billions in revenue up for grabs to whomever is the most organized and with the most resources to nap that business.
From weaves to braids, to real hair or lace front wigs, to extensions to great-looking salons, they’ve got it going on for black hair care and black hair products.
If you have never heard of Jane Elliot, she’s a tough-as-nails former teacher who gives unbelievably powerful talks and workshops on racism around the world. She deserves massive respect for the work she’s been doing for decades upon decades. She’s been on Oprah and on a UK television program called “The Event.” This is a program you’re not likely to ever see re-packaged for US audiences (unless it’s on daytime talk TV).
Here it is, again, very powerful and worth a double-take. Can you imagine a high school sociology class (or even a college class) watching this? How many heads would roll? Very powerful and we dare you to watch and get engaged with it.

Gotta love YouTube. After watching the heart-breaking documentary “Dark Girls” about how prevalent self-defeating brain-washing is among black people and black women in particular, we found out it’s offering on YouTube for free, and for watching wherever and whenever you want. What if interracial and black women meetup.com groups around the world could watch this and openly discuss it? How many eyes would be opened?
It’s a powerful documentary to say the least (albeit with a tacky website full of ads for skin lightening cream ironically enough). But here is the documentary in full. Watch it, tell us what you think, get active and tell others about it. Time to stop the lies about black feminine beauty.
You’d think after all the Holocaust movies, all the kids forced to read the “Diary of Anne Frank” (and rightfully so), Americans would know about the Holocaust, know that it must have occured to have video, textual and eye-witness verification. But apparently eating too much junk food erodes brain matter, at least in the US where the school system has been on the skids for decades now.
An article from “The Jewish Week” tells us that not only is the future dark, it’s also dumb as a post. The article cites an ADL (Anti Defamation League) poll indicating that “Anti-Semitic stereotypes are so pervasive that fully 26 percent of adults surveyed worldwide — representing an estimated 1.09 billion adults — are ‘deeply infected,’ even though 70 percent have never met a Jew.”
Anti-Semitism (the hatred of Jews and Jewish culture) is so rampant and widespread that almost every person who isn’t a Jew thinks Jews are all rich or somehow members in an NWO type of secret society that rules the planet (or at least the US) behind closed doors, the poll seems to indicate.
Yes, I’m exaggerating somewhat for the sake of pointing out extreme views that aren’t based on reality or factual support (who needs that?), but it’s quite shocking for any Jew to read and certainly for non-Jews to read and understand. We don’t all rule the world, have huge sums of cash (Interrace Today would be alot slicker and get alot more hits I can assure you if that were the case) or sit around counting pennies all day long.
It’s a rather disheartening poll to say the least but one nonetheless that everyone should read and be aware of.

Having never visited Australia, I can’t really speculate on what it’s like there in terms of diversity and the openness of interracial dating and marriage. Certainly there must be some ethnic diversity there since you have aboriginal natives in the Outback who have been there for quite some time (and again I’m showing my lack of knowledge on Australia). Beautiful vistas, great location on the map, lots of global warming probably coming their way, but other than that, I honestly don’t know much about them or what to expect.
According to this link, there’s a program in Australia, or rather a network it seems called SBS. On that network there’s a regular program called Insight and the article (which is linked to) we read is referring to an episode of the Insight program that discusses interracial dating and interracial marriage in Australia.
Since it’s not on YouTube or Vimeo (that we can find), we can’t copy and paste it into this space but if you’d like to watch this Aussie show and let us know what you think of it, and how “insight” differs from US perceptions of interracial dating and interracial marriage, please do so. We’d love to hear from our readers!
