Jim Brown, Raquel Welch (Jo Raquel Tejada), and the History of Interracial Love in American Cinema -- a #textmex #mextasy repost!

Originally published: Feb 25, 2009 | Updated August 4, 2021




Almost on a daily basis, I am made aware of the number of research lapses that took place as I brought Tex[t]-Mex to print! 

My biggest mistake? Not devoting a chapter to 100 Rifles starring Jim Brown, Raquel Tejada (aka SDSU's biggest alumnus {who did not graduate}, aka Raquel Welch), and Burt Reynolds (as "Yaqui Joe, an Indian who robs a bank in order to buy guns for his people who are being savagely repressed by the government.")!

Surprisingly, in 1969, even Roger Ebert couldn't break into a sweat over this opus, directed by Tom Gries. I will try to include a significant chapter on this magnum opus in Eyegiene, currently in preparation for the University of Texas Press. In the meantime, students of stereotypes and feminist studies mavens, might enjoy this clip off of the Daily Motion, culled/edited/recut from the film.

Here's the full trailer:

 

 And, most importantly for students of Ethnic American studies, the heralded "interracial" 
love scene between Welch and Jim Brown--note how YouTube entices you by making you 
leave this site to see the erotic fireworks!

#Repost || Aunt Jemima and Friends Hit the Road or Another Chapter in the History of American Stereotypes


I posted this on my Facebook page a year ago, but it merits reposting here on the Textmex Galleryblog owing to its connection to my book:

Wow! A magic moment in the semiotic history of the Americas as Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and the Cream of Wheat Porter face extinction!

Aunt Jemima

Cream of Wheat porter, next?

Here also, is page #142 from Tex[t]-Mex: Seductive Hallucination of the "Mexican" in America--where the connection between Jemima and other Ethnic American superstars (I am talking about you, Speedy!) get their day in the sun.
