Have you forgotten that when we were brought here we were robbed of our name, robbed of our language, we lost our religion, our culture, our God...and many of us by the way we act, we even lost our minds!!!
read my lists of fave books, films and music above - that should tell you all you need to know!
Black Evolution - just take a scroll down the comments and clips uploaded over the last 2 weeks. You've got loads of films to choose from. Some old that you'll have to look for on Amazon, others that are brand new and coming to an independent cinema near you soon!
Dillinger my brother. 21 Jump Street is not what I'd call a 'Black Film' . Here in Derby I help to run a bi-monthly film club. In December we showed 'The Story of Lovers Rock' and in February we screened 'The Black Power Mixtape' which is a documentary about the Black Panther Party. They are what I'd call Black Films. In April we'll be showing a doc on Black British clothes designer Ozwald Boateng. Let me know if you want more details. For reviews check out my Blog - 'theblakwatch.wordpress.com'
This group is a good idea. I joined Blacknet about 3 years ago, but haven't visited the site in a while. I started my blog at the start of this year and thought I'd return to Black net to promote it, and lo and behold I discover this group. It says in the blurb that to join you must fill out an online application form - so where is it?
Is this a joke or what? From what I know the leader of the BNP is not a 39 year old Black guy who lives in London. And I'm sure he earns more than 25K a year. If you're really single and looking for a relationship with a Black woman, then I suggest you change your picture. And your name!
the woman in the picture looks beautiful- but I doubt thats you unless you're a model. So whats ups with this 'seek interacial' business? Don't you like Black men? Maybe you should join the BNP. They have a lot of white male members!!!
