Do you do video on your hair and I’m in Texas by way of Louisiana I think I’m pretty woke
Great conversation. Loved this video, you both are so calm and relaxed yet hit some heavy points. 🙌 My fav channel right here.
Wheeeeew. This is a topic I’ve been asked about, but I’ve been too afraid to address it in a video. Lol!
I don’t know if I have any relationship related questions to ask you. I think I’ve watched all of the related videos. 🤣
Whites created and continue to support the current system. It is designed for them. If whites were truly interested in closing the wealth and social gap – it would have been done or currently being done and it is not. And it doesn’t take a collective response either. Why are we still having to teach other races why something is in humane? Why would a first response be “what are their state’s laws”? That’s a definite nod to how conditioned other races (and us to), are to thinking of the law before compassion when it comes to black bodies. It’s conditioned and it doesn’t quite go away it seems. Your town has a unique dynamic, but as with the police, military, LGBTQ community, yes there is a code for the group but racial identity will always influence any outcome first.
First observation: Mrs. H identified by both race and nationality. Mr. H identified by nationality and not by race. Does he identify as a White man of Hispanic/Arabic descent?
What is whiteness and what is brownness? Does the “Hispanic/Latino” identity encompass both? Considering that Latino/Hispanic is not a race. Does it depend on phenotype and cultural upbringing? I am confused on how those who are racially/phenotypically “white” identify as non-white depending on their nationality/culture.
Love that you answered this! It's a tough topic to condense in one video but you tackled it anyway! Thank you! 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿
I'm married interracially and I never see these types of topics get talked about. It is SO refreshing to see 2 calm and level headed humans take a journey together and learn about each other's experience in America. The empathy that grew out of that sharing is something I wish we knew how to bottle and share with society at large.
Of course I have more questions… Do you know your Myers-Briggs personality types? Ever heard of the Enneagram? If so, what numbers are you and Mr. Hallease?
Lastly….I hate this question too so I'm cringing as I type it and only bringing it up because you touched on it briefly in the video. Do you plan to have kids? If so, what are the factors that push you to pursue parenting? Because my cons list far outweighs my pros and I'm open to hearing reasons why I should reconsider…
You're the best Hallease and thanks for making an appearance and being open to answer my question Mr. Hallease!
Class is racialized. Colorism is a driving force. I live in Washington Heights, NYC. Dominicans love to say “it’s class, not race/color.” But why are most people in power or people with good jobs white/lighter than paper bag? Why are Dominicans who have menial jobs mostly Black/darker?
I was in an 'interracial' marriage and we saw each other as people; husband and wife and child and we moved around the world as such. Others had opinions but whatever(their problem). I will say that the ex-husband had blinders on, in regard to race and I found that problematic. I am confident in my Black loveliness and never felt less than or whined about it #pride, but HE did not know history and that fact was invalidating.
This is not a interracial relationship you both are of the 12 tribes of Israel check Israel unite. org or iuic classroom YouTube shalom
My question is how can I, too, find a loving husband? Is there anyone reading this that struggles in that department, or is it just me? #theintrovertstruggle #theblackgirlstruggle
Being middle class and growing up in the subarbs, even though Im black I had to work through that same understanding regarding that situation.. Stephen Darby's messages about the prison system, jim crow and even your video about the history of Austin Hallese, made me see stuff I was previously didnt know. We (as a people) have to come back to some core moral standards and values we cant be gang apologist, cardi b apologist, we have to repair our families, and not be whipped around emotionally in politics as well. Being outraged is a start, educating people is a start, but the whole policing language and riding the wave of all these scandals ("Hes racist, shes racist") sounds like distraction to me. The real leaders and movements especially men in the past are assasinated or dismantled (Black panthers, black wallstreet) and current voices (especiallu men) are being drowned out . Stephen Darby was doing ALOT for the community in Kentucky, even bought land and was teaching people about agriculture and self defense, and he died under some strange circumstances. In my local community I havent found anyone like him yet, but Im on the look out.
A question, how do you feel about Beto?
Great conversation. Many blessings to your families 🤗
How did the Mr Hallease moniker come about?
Has Mr Hallease also done his ancestry DNA? I think it'd be interesting for you (both) to do a documentary on that as you did when you got back your DNA results.
Really interesting info! I always assumed he was Arabic/Middle Eastern… I don't know the right word…!
Favourite sock??!?! LMAO😭😭
Another great, thought-provoking docu-video!👍🏼
The intro 👏🏿 yes girl!
As someone who travels the world (living in Korea), it's always interesting to see how other cultures/races view racism. Colorism is also the biggest thing. In Asia, eastern Asians are preferred over South East/South Asians simply because of their fairer skin. It's important discussion that needs to be had! Thanks for the video!
8:20 say. it. again.
this is a fabulous video!
Before I start the video…Unrelated: will you offer the shirts in other colors besides blue? I’m a black or grey kind of person.
Its so interesting to me how where your grow up kind of changes the way you see yourself. I grew up in oakland, there’s white folks, Asian folks, latinx & chicano/x folks, black folks and everything in between. But because of the history of black illtreatment and blackness also meaning poverty (for a lot of black folks) I grew up with this strong sense of blackness. Particularly that blackness was in opposition to whiteness particularly the criminal justice system (largely white officers.) it’s also interesting that Mr. Hallese kind of needed to be educated on the specific issues of black folks. Where I’m from black folks and brown folks are treated about the same. (Which isn’t that great) also, it might have to do with race being tightly aligned with class here.
I grew up with mainly Mexican American and black kids. We both had the same idea about police. We both had the same struggles with being poor. We both saw and understood the ugly beast that is white supremacy.
Whole different story when I went to a predominantly Asian and Asian American school.
Race is a challenging thing to face. I’m glad you both are having these discussions and leading us into these discussions with you.
Awesome topic and video. Can you two discuss maybe one of your shared interests?
Im with Mr Hallease! I would like to know yalls favorite socks/underwear brand. 😄
I always thought the two of you was “woke”. I’m always struck by how much love, communication and teamwork the two do you display. You guys are life partners and that beautiful, actually finding someone to share a life with. Thanks for sharing
I remember when I was small and insecure (who am I kidding here i'm still both) i would dream of being as articulate as Hallease is. I'm not kidding I would listen to you talking about anything just because you always make it so…artful and charistmatic.
Your hair has grown so much and it beautiful ❤️❤️❤️
woow am a blasian my dad is Japanese my mam is African and I love this I really wana get married to a white man I believe I get one handsome this inspired me
I'm facing being in an interracial relationship so this is right on time
The enemy is not just white people, but people. I am mixed, but was raised as of color. I was taught to love myself and learned to seek those who love.
INTRO IS LIT!
Refreshing human beings✨🌱👩🏿🌾🧠🥦🍉🐛🦋
I grew up in a very small town and the school I went to was kindergartner thru 8th grade and the first Mexican I ever seen I was like in third grade like 1983 they came to our school
I can’t recall ever seeing a more balanced, honest discussion of the nuances in a interracial relationship. I would think there is pressure to portray a sense of not seeing race at all. That fact that there were opinions, questions and discussions surrounding the Martin case, how protests were done, and the obstacles your children could face without any glossy pretense is amazing. Loved this video!
I found you bc of your locs … I just watched this video and had to sub!…I loved the whole concept of this video
Lol thought he was arab this whole time
Is it difficult to be in a interracial relationship?Goodness….relationships are difficult….no matter what. Mainly because….we ALL have issues.
I enjoyed this video. If only the world could honestly explore and learn about race, class etc
Really appreciate y’all’s thoughtful take on this topic. Kim and I are having much the same discussion now as we prepare to raise our kids together. She’s from San Antonio too (Converse Judson). Would love to grab dinner the next time all of us are in town.
I stumbled upon your Youtube channel and I love it. I am Spanish but came to New Jersey a month ago. The thing that impressed me the most upon arriving is to see how a lot of Latinos do not speak Spanish anymore, either because their parents didn't teach them, or because they feel it is an "inferior" language, or because they feel lazy to practice it outside home.
I would say to Mr. (and Ms, why not?) Hallease: Cheer up and learn Spanish! It is a beautiful language, spoken by 400 million native speakers in 21 countries, has 11 Nobel prizes on Literature and has concepts that cannot be translated into any other language. Besides, each country develops their own new words and puts them every year into the official Diccionario de la Academia, so it grows exponentially every year. If we don't speak it, a part of us and what we are will never be transmitted to our children… so will an elemental part of the culture perish.
Best wishes for your couple! Congrats on your videos. They are of a superb quality and they made me start to understand lots of things… about the local culture, the concepts of racial identity in America… and to understand my girlfriend, who is Black too.
omg this is awesome
Not to be offensive, but I do think that Americans are stupid when it comes to social and political issues. For the love of god I just cant understand how media and people pay SO MUCH attention to isolated cases. Its just stupid IMO. I understand that its mainly because of how American media takes one incident and makes it bigger than life. Americans should think about gun violence that kills 10.000 people a year or big issues, but instead they talk about one random incident and dont see the big picture. I just cant understand it. Its so stupid to me. It also seems people dont really talk about facts too much. Like there is a lot of cheap talk about "police brutality", but what are the facts really? What really are the big issues? I feel like most of the issues talked about in USA are not really the things are actually important for peoples everyday lives. I feel that people dont really understand that pretty much all problems in society are result of fundamental issues in American economic system. The fact is that corporations, corrupt politicians and people with inherited wealth are running the show and great masses dont even understand what is happening. Race is mainly used just as a distraction. Its main use is to keep the status quo in place, keep people distracted when small "elite" is pretty much stealing from working Americans and oppressing people in poor countries outside USA. After all America still has de facto slaves, they are just not in USA but in India, China etc.
You guys are beautiful..I apologize for people’s ignorance..celebrate who celebrates you!
God is no respecter of persons!😊
Can you make a video on how to love your hair , and why it’s important to love your hair 🤒🤒🤒???
