You know at a website called Interrace Today, we’re down with the brown, cool with my Jewish brothers and sisters, and hip with all my Asian followers.
We recently ran across a series on YouTube-land called “Divas and Cocktails,” (two things you typically don’t want to mix together and then be around, now). We’re still trying to figure the videos out.
Here we have a nice little video of some yentas (um, excuse me) reality TV sistas discussing spouses appearing on their programs.
Uh-huh, you know he did, girl!
“Whatever you have that’s not on a solid foundation is going to collapse when it’s under a miscroscope,” amen, Sister.

To all of us nerds, William Shatner making out with Uhuru (and not just a little bit, but obviously enjoying himself), was great. Shatner had no issues jumping on women either on the television program (remember the green-skinned woman?) or in real life (as I’m sure he himself would attest). Shatner, also a macho jewish man (as opposed to nerdy images of Jews depicted in most mass media), by the way, is still going strong at 82, with a new one-man show out in which he reviews his career and (of course) the lasting appeal of “Star Trek.”
You have to wonder why Rae Dawn Chong would go after Oprah with a vengeance, unless she’s been smoking some of her old man’s best herbal essence…but it’s certainly her perogative not to be impressed or to have the feelings she apparently does.

That being said, when was the last movie or TV project Rae Dawn Chong has had? Was it “Tales from the Dark Side the Movie” where she played some kind of interracial sexual demon, or was it the unwatchable “Soul Man” in which C-list talent C. Thomas Howell rubs shoe polish over himself and then falls in love with Rae Dawn Chong and immediately develops racial sensitivity?
Most people never think of this question because, quite frankly, they don’t have to. If you don’t participate in interracial dating (or marriage) you don’t have to deal with people shaking their hands, making sounds, saying degrading things (that of course don’t make any logical sense), or attempting to belittle or abuse you in some other way.

You don’t have to deal with parents treating you like a child and then punishing you to get you in line, you don’t have to deal with unseen repercussions (such as losing a job when the boss sees your wife or husband), and so many other forms racism takes in America.
