From the black male perspective, actor Brian White says negative portrayals of black Women are just a reflection of reality. He says that as the black community we connect with the negative messages from black reality television then get mad because of its success. He continues to say that by watching these shows and films that depict black people in a negative light makes the stereotype exist. Brian White's solution is to stop funding the films with our money.
Rudolf Khametovich Nureyev (17 March 1938 – 6 January 1993) was a Soviet-born dancer of ballet and modern dance, one of the most celebrated of the 20th century. Nureyev's artistic skills explored expressive areas of the dance, providing a new role to the male ballet dancer who once served only as support to the women. Nureyev defected from the Soviet Union to the West in 1961, despite KGB efforts to stop him.
