Okay, here is my first attempt at an open thread, but themed slightly. Check out the following video scene below from what I think is Spike’s best work, Jungle Fever. Gator Purify (Samuel L. Jackson) comes over to see his brother Flipper Purify (Wesley Snipes) who is now living with his mistress, after being found out.
Here’s a short transcript I have written of what is said between the two, in case anyone wants to refer to quotes.
Flipper: What the fuck are you doing here? How the fuck did you find out this address? Did Cyrus give it to you?
Gator: She’s white.
Flipper: No shit, yeah she’s white
Gator: She’s got any money? Real long money?
Flipper: No, she doesn’t have any money. She’s a temp.
Gator: A secretary?
Gator: You mean to say that my little brother got himself an ofay [sic] who ain’t got any monay[sic]? What about Drew, Ming?
Flipper: Gator, it’s complex man.
Gator: See, me myself personally, I would have opted for some money and shit, you know what I am saying. But I gots to give you some dap. She looks good! See, most brothers with white b*****, nine out 10, they be never having a Penthouse pet. They’d be having an outhouse pet – dog, flies, fleas. See, that don’t work for the white boy see, if a sister is on his arm, I guaran-tee you she will be slammin’.
Am I the only one who kind of agrees with Gator’s observation? Honestly, from what I have seen of IR couples in LDN where the man is white and the woman is black, the woman is pretty much always absolutely stunning. And the man also looks sharp too. And I have seen a diverse range of dark-skinned sisters and light-skinned sisters with white men in London, and again, the woman look sharp and beautiful.
Maybe Gator is right…What do you think?
Miscellaneous Note #1: How ironic that Samuel L. Jackson is in fact the conscious brother of the pair? Wesley never came back hard after this film. But Samuel did and has had a great career. The wheel turns…
