Take a moment to check out this short film from rapper Shawn Chrystopher. “Blackandwhite,” based on and featuring the track of the same name, tackles a difficult and too-often ignored subject – the difficulties faced by interracial couples. We love that Shawn Chrystopher isn’t afraid to take on such an important topic, and we love that he does so in a way that isn’t afraid to tackle truly problematic issues, with lyrics like these.
She never met my friends, ‘cause I ain’t need the drama,
She wanna take care of the nigger, I ain’t need a momma.
She’s amazed by my hair and my skill to fight,
And tried to take me out to parties that were strictly white.
Watch the video, and tell us what you get out of this take on a subject that will only become more relevant as the number of interracial relationships in the United States increases.
