Black Woman Disrespects A Black Man & White Girlfriend in Harlem Barbershop. What Would YOU Do? (Video)

I enjoy these ‘candid camera-type’ of social experiments that ABC News reporter John Quinones does in his “What Would You Do?” series that usually airs on Friday nights.   This episode is particularly interesting as they head to a Harlem barbershop with a large black clientele.  Things get interesting when a black female disrespects a black man & his white girlfriend.  Personally I’ve dated every race there is & wouldn’t tolerate anyone disrespecting my girlfriend or wife no matter what her race is. In fact, many of my family members are also involved in interracial relationships which reflects how much America as a whole is changing.  Many great points were made in this video by the people who stood up including the brother in the video who made a excellent point that interracial relationships are not destroying the black community. It’s drugs & poverty, but we can’t combat that with our own ignorance, hatred, & bigotry. African-Americans should know better than anyone else not to discriminate on anyone as much as we have been for many years. There’s so many great quotes in this segment it’s amazing. Ultimately, the most important thing about ANY relationship is “LOVE”.

Donor Unknown (Trailer)

Now this is a documentary I’m very interested in seeing. Today there are literally thousands of adult people who grew up not knowing their fathers because they were products of artificial insemination through sperm donors. In this upcoming documentary called ‘Donor Unknown’ a group of adult children will meet their biological father for the first time but his circumstances & the true picture of who he really is may shatter the ideal of what they expected.

Joe Budden TV Returns With ‘Dictate The Box’ Discussion on Sex & Relationships (Video)

Joe Budden damn sure has kept some dime females around him over the years. I seriously think ‘Jump Off Joe Beezy’ may understand women a lot more that the average male does because of his history in dealing with the some bad ass women. He’s arguably the hip hop version of Prince Nelson Rogers (when it comes to women). Of course we’re not comparing Joe Budden to Prince musically. That would be blasphemous. When it comes to the ladies though Joey is Charlie Sheen style #Winning. Check out this discussion he has with this young lady regarding relationships in this ‘Dictate The Box’ episode of what appears to be his renewed Joe Budden TV web series.
