The Epitome of Perfection Part 8
Some breathless moments for me began with the sight or the recollection of Sophia Loren, or perhaps her presence challenged the very notion of Italian women's supremacy over other European women. It didn't. Did it detangle the story that accompanies white women worldwide wherever they go that they are the ideal ? No. It did not.
For an Indian, as I am; Sophia Loren, I could not judge harshly because she supplied the weight to the feeling of deep beauty transcending a social order and the social norm. It was just a refreshing time hearing her voice, listening to her talk, looking at her imaging you were with her, could be with her, and were acknowledged by her.
Of course at the height of her beauty (that's inaccurate her beauty did not wane), and her career it was dangerous for Colored people to express or worse exhibit gushing or even casual desire for any white woman. A 'member' (what Negroes used to called themselves and each other away from white folks) could get killed by a white woman in degrees. Black men, in the public eye, need to examine this, and their occupation with beautiful white women amongst themselves preferably because an assembly of like-minded individuals brings clarity solitude can't and won't because one person needs the other person. If being a separate entity unto one's self does not help a man trapped in the child support system, and that threatens his freedom, why resort to it during the period of examination crucial to your development, and later initiation rites? That is a helluva a leap, but it isn't. The subjects are related. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories Jan. 4, 2014
