    —Marie Antoinette (2006)

     Just so everyone is clear, the handsome Black man tutoring Marie Antoinette is Joseph Boulogne, classical musician extraordinaire whose work influenced Mozart’s. This has been your Western music history tidbit of the day. Adieu!

    So many tourists do this with little to no interaction with the people they’re posing with.  To them, these Himba women are so odd and strange (I’ve read a substantial number of travel posts/personal blogs that attest to this) that their humanity is not apparent.  Sadly, it is not just White people, but anyone and everyone so Westernized that to them, the Himba are simple artifacts of Namibia not unlike the wild safari. 

    There are of course photos that exhibit some interaction (read: the Himba/s in the shot are smiling at least), and I know the Himba are open to meeting other people and interacting with tourists.  But they are not always treated like human beings with expectations of privacy and dignity.

    Their rejection of western culture is not why the Himba people receive this treatment.  Let’s be clear about that.  It is because of their lack of proximity to white supremacy.  Being non-European is an oddity that must either be ogled or exterminated, whether you’re in Namibia or the US, whether you’re bare-chested in Windhoek or walking down the street in Ferguson, Missouri.  Not even money and fame can protect you from the standard shame of being Black.

    Being Black is treated as a situation one only employs away from “civilization”, even in Africa.  Our existence is not accepted in the current world as is as this video shows.  A Himba man must fold and stash his culture (read: soul) away in order to shine outside and he is lauded as “exceptional”.

    Bill was a selfish bastard since day one and he got what he deserved. Bill getting kill by Sookie was what I always wanted but not like that, Bill asking her to kill him with her light was another selfish act from him. I was glad that Sookie didn’t do it and used a wooden stake instead.

     I have to admit that it was freaking sad seeing him die.

    Well, good morning anon and yes, I really really wanted Eric and Pam to be happy, but they’ve turned into Capitalistic scum.The same Capitalistic scum I’m always blogging against. So why on earth would I be happy about an ending for them that actually goes against everything I stand for?
