Have you noticed how mainstream Hollywood film and TV productions STILL pair off black and white people?
I mean for gawdsake, it’s been FORTY YEARS since Kirk (under protest, in the plot – although not because of race – nasty aliens were trying to control his will) kissed Uhura. Yet despite there having also been forty years of political correctness – STARTED by America – salt and pepper relationships STILL appear to upset their people.
But the thing I do NOT get – is their apparent preference for black couples, where the woman is PALER than the MAN.
Think about it – how many black couples have YOU seen on TV, where the MAN is caramel-coloured, while the woman is the hue of ebony? It just don’t happen.
Of course to Americans, anyone who isn’t white is automatically BLACK, including mixed-race people who have black features but almost white skin (in the Fifties, they were known to both blacks and whites as “lillywhites”). Thus, even these PALE women ARE still black.
But there must be people all over the World – where U.S. programmes are syndicated – who think American black women are NATURALLY paler than their men.
Rather like the generation of boys who, thanks to air-brushed porn, grew up thinking women had no sex organs!
