"Dear White People", "Drumline 2014", and "How to Get Away With Murder" Promotes Homosexuality


I stumbled across scenes from all of these movies and series and was SHOCKED at what I saw in them.

TV and movies are using subliminal messages to MOLD the MINDS of the gullible and naive.

Re: "Dear White People", "Drumline 2014", and "How to Get Away With Murder" Promotes Homosexuality




There was an episode of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ where Dave Chappelle talks about Black men dressing like a woman to be funny. He was told to dress like a woman and refused. I must admit, I have never thought much about just how many men wear dresses to be funny until Dave Chappelle spoke about it. Now, every time I see that happening, I think about what that episode of ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’.


There are just too many Black men that have dressed like a woman in a TV show, movie, or commercial for me to name. I will just talk about the ones that stood out to me. Kevin Hart. Kevin Hart put a dress to portray Quvenzhane’ Wallis on an episode of SNL. I was upset about this because I felt like she is a child, she should be off limits. I was also upset because of the fact that he put on a dress. I wondered, what made him agree to do that? At that time, Kevin Hart was already well-known, he didn’t NEED to do the skit. Does that mean he WANTED to? But why? There isn’t anything funny about a man in dressed as a woman.

Let’s talk about LeBron James. I was shocked when I found out LeBron put on a wig. In a Progressive commercial, LeBron has on a wig and an apron over a basketball uniform and he is known as FloBron. I still don’t understand the concept of the ad, as of now, they have only released short videos on Instagram and YouTube, they have not released a full commercial.


Now, let’s talk about Terry Crews. The commercial is confusing to me. The commercial is part of Old Spice’s “Get Shaved in the Face” campaign. In the beginning an old man is in the street and the old man says he is glad he grew his beard and Terry pops up out of the sewer (of all places), yelling (which reminds me of the stereotype that Black men are angry all the time), and shaves the man’s beard only to see that the old man is actually him. Once he sees the old man is him, they both yell and scream, then they both blow up (yeah, I’m confused too).

After they blow up, Terry wakes up screaming (again) and his wife wakes up and says “go back to bed sweetie” and his wife is him, dressed in drag, with rollers in his hair and lipstick on. Terry (the man) screams again and said “Oh no, I married myself! No!” He then jumps out of bed and shaves his body as a result of that, his body disappears, the wife says in a “sassy” voice while rolling her neck, “men”.


Here’s the problem, this commercial is a stereotype of Black men and women, and it also emasculates the Black man. As mentioned before, Terry Crews dresses in drag with lipstick and rollers in his head to play his wife. I don’t understand the concept of the commercial, maybe they wanted something to make him scream so he can shave his body and make it disappear, I don’t know. I do know they could have found a different way to achieve that goal.


Terry Crews screams throughout the whole commercial (as he does in his other Old Spice commercials) and I just don’t understand why. It perpetuates the stereotype that Black men are angry and dangerous. Then they put him in a dress and makeupto make him less scary? The commercial also makes it seem as if all Black women roll their neck when they get upset and that simply isn’t true. For people that say it’s just entertainment ( it’snever just entertainment), I wonder if they know that George Washington Carver was supposedly castrated (another way to emasculate a man) because his owners did not want him to do anything to his daughter. Because of the castration, is the reason that George Washington Carver sounded like a little girl when he was a grown man (at least that what is said to be the reason).


The more we know our history, the more we will look at things differently and see things for what they really are. If you want to check out the commercial, go to [sign in to see URL] and search Old Spice Nightmare Face.


What are your thoughts on the commercial? Does it offend you or do you think it’s just entertainment? What do you think about Black men dressing as women to be funny? Let me know below.


You can also follow me on Instagram or Twitter @monetsheri and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions on what you want me to write about.
