Black Girl In Suburbia (documentary trailer)
Black Girl In Suburbia is a feature documentary that looks into the experiences of Black girls growing up in predominately white communities. This is a different look into suburbia from the perspective of women of color. This film explores through professional and personal interviews the conflict and issues Black girls have relating to both white and Black communities.
Black Girl In Suburbia intends to spark an open dialogue about race, identity, and perspective among all people, in hopes that these discussions will allow us to reconsider perceptions of ourselves, others and the communities in which we live and share.
Release date 2014

I need this so bad… SUPPORT!
Last week someone asked me if I thought Black kids that grew up in White homes would have identity issues and I answered maybe and gave a cynical answer as to how they might feel about their Blackness. Anyhow, this is another side of the coin that I think is important to share and help support. So watch and support? Kthanksbye.

After watching this I realized white people set the rules for what is funny, acceptable, and what you are allowed to tell the public. Every black person I know laughed when Kanye said “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” We laughed because it was true and thats what made it funny. But white people didn’t think it was funny. This is an example how white supremacy works. Notice no hoods were involved.
