‘Negotiated Authenticity’ — What Black Scriptwriters In Hollywood Have Always Been Expected To Provide

Black Trauma: Diese Pandemie wird nie enden

Rodney King. Das ist der Name des ersten schwarzen Mannes, der der Polizei zum Opfer fiel. Besser gesagt ist es der erste Name, an den ich mich erinnern kann. Ich war drei Jahre alt, als er gewaltvoll von weißen Polizisten zusammengeschlagen wurde. Von diesem Zeitpunkt an war die Gefahr, wegen meiner Herkunft ermordet zu werden, etwas, das oft zuhause angesprochen wurde. Es wurde so regelmäßig thematisiert wie das Händewaschen vorm Essen oder die Ermahnung, dass meine großen Brüder und ich un...

Pretty Much Pop #19 Discusses Race and the Target Audience w/ Rodney Ramsey

http://www.podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/partiallyexaminedlife/PMP_019_10-27-19.mp3 We’ve all felt at various points (maybe at most points) that some media creation has reached us by mistake, that we are not the target audience. 20th century American TV was aimed largely at a white majority, with a parallel, underfunded channel of content aimed at people of color. So how have things changed? There still seem to be “black shows,” but how do they fit in to a landscape where i...

Tyrese Apologizes For Sexist Rants, Women Continue To Go About Their Business

Tyrese Gibson took the ultimate L last week, after a BET video in which he railed against “sluts, skeezers, hoes, tramps and overly aggressive, promiscuous women” sparked backlash. Now, the singer has owned up to his sexism in a long Instagram post, saying, “Ladies, you deserve better.”  The “Fate of the Furious” star came under fire over his comments, with many accusing him of being sexist and misogynist for implying that women who enjoy sex are morally bankrupt.
