I was searching on youtube for mixed race related videos and came across all these awful american chat shows with people talking about different mixed race related topics.

I do love Queen Latifa though but people on these shows are more ignorant that Jeremy Kyle’s scallies.

I think the topic of mixed race relationships is under a lot more debate in America than here. I wouldn’t be shocked that a white woman was into black men. But attraction should really rise above race.

I’d like to watch Zebrahead , an American film that deals with mixed race identity, but I have given so much money to amazon over the past 3 months that I don’t think I can afford it!!!

I watched tarnation this weekend, I kind of like it and I kind of don’t. Lot’s of creative editing and a touching story but it’s a bit over dramatic, some scenes are a bit staged or diffeicult to watch.  However many scenes were natural and wondeful. I also thought it was too long and my attention started to wane after an hour.

It was interesting anyway because it showed me that a  documentary can be a mixture of creativity, surreality, archive footage and semi-acted scenes. It’s a real mismatch of styles and narratives.
