Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Brazil: Controversy Over TV Show 'Sexo e as Negas' (which translates to Sex and the Niggas)

2015-01-15-SexeasNegas1024x390.jpgWhile many in the United States are focused on the protests surrounding Vh1's recently canceled reality show Sorority Sisters, protests are happening elsewhere over similar issues -- derogatory representations of black women.

On and offline protests are taking place in Brazil over the television show 'Sexo e as Negas,' which translates to Sex and the Niggas. The show is supposed to be an adaptation of the U.S. hit television series Sex and the City (HBO) but is being criticized by black women in Brazil for the title and the hyper sexualized representation of black women in the series. The series creator Miguel Falabella, who is white, apparently has blown off the blow back from black female audiences.  | Nsenga Burton
