It's a documentary about "black people who hate themselves" and it's brutal!! They show Venus with pictures her boyfriend, throughout, along with Kobe and OJ!

Where is this? I mean is is a tv show, or in the theatres?

It sounds offensive?... is it? (Pardon my ignorance)

It's a documentary available on DVD and video. Not sure if it is available at the video stores, but it is available on amazon.com!

So Venus hates herself and her race because she fell in love with a caucasian.

I am black and I am so annoyed by these sellout theory; you have to marry someone from your own race. That is the most ridiculous thing. If you find love in an Italian, a Chinese person, why not explore the love. I would rather be in a happy relationship than have to be "forced' to marry a man of my own race to please other black people

I know, I thought the thread starter was kidding or being insulting. But I checked it out on amazon, and apparently a loser actually made a DVD

It's probably someone who is militant trying to capitalize off the success of Venus. I think if Venus image is being used, or if her name is mentioned in this filth she should sue for defamation of character.

The DVD is for real folks. It was filmed at California State University, Dominguez Hills, that's how I heard about. For example, the filmmaker lists the "top ten sellout cities" and L.A. comes in fourth, because "Venus Williams was born there! He says he made the film to create "dialogue" but I think he's going to piss a lot of people off!

Haven't seen the DVD, but it's such crap. Does he even know Ms. Venus Williams?! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

People can make all of the assumptions they want. But if I were Venus, I'd just ignore it all and live my life and live a happy life. Cuz while this (supposed) filmmaker is struggling to make films, Venus is sure not hating on herself!!! She's probably pretty happy! :D

I'm not black and I'm not American ... but if anyone seriously thinks that Venus Williams, an amazing athlete and apparently all round good person, has done anything but the greatest of good for her race then they need their head read.

I'm not mad at Venus for dating a white man. I'm mad at Venus for dating a white man who looks like Jared from the Subway commercials. She could do MUCH better than that..... ;)

But seriously, folks.....I have a cousin (I'm black, by the way) who married a white woman with four kids from previous marriages, and those four kids all call him "daddy," because their real dads won't have anything to do with them. The people who produced that DVD are the real sellouts.

Totally agree!! Venus has a strong sense of herself, both as a woman and as an African American. I don't think she is bothered by people who claim that she is less than she is!!! Venus will rise above it all!!! :)

I had heard of this study before, but I never knew specific names were mentioned. Especially Venus when no one knows exactly if she is dating that guy or not.

what an absolutely stupid and offensive premise. Totally unnecessary, people should be able to love who they want and not have to justify it.

Come out of hiding, RB, and have the "Balls" to admit that you posted EXACTLY this kind of hateful rhetoric about Venus on another board! :rolleyes:
