    I’ll buy one and never use it, only if AmRen gets a cut.

    I think there’s enormous potential for a long list of names for colors in this line that will make it relevant to the suburban kids looking for an authentic ghetto experience, in much the same way that the makeup industry has a thousand names for “red” –
    “Baby Momma Black”
    “Knowutimsayin?”
    “EBT”
    “9mm”
    “Police Brutality”
    “Section 8″
    “Das Raciss Red”
    “Malt Liquor Lime”
    “37 Year Old Grandma”, etc.

        On a side note, I just logged in to my youtube account to watch the video after numerous warning about adult content.

        Youtube is now prompting me to use my real name so my friends and everyone can know who I am.

        This data mining is out of control. They’re trying to build personality profiles of everyone.

        I can envision the day when you’re picked up for a crime and your entire online history is brought up in court.

        They’re going to have to say “anything you say or post on line can and will be used against you in a court of law”.

          Google “Big Brother’s Digital House of Mirrors.” It’s an article about the internet and government surveillance by Jim Goad. It goes into a lot of what you mentioned. Sadly, we are becoming the United Surveillance States of America.

          Speaking of data mining. Three times in the last two days, charges to my debit card were rejected. There was a small amount charged to my card in the amount of $2.53. I called my bank. Sure enough a Chinese web site had gotten my bank card number and fraudulently charged against it. I filed a fraud complaint with the officer. I can tell when something is up,as I type and the letters don’t appear immediately. This happened this week. Heads up the web site is pgvin.com. The charge came from Mayanmar or something like it .Couldn’t understand the country name, but the characters appear to be chinese. Watch out for your accounts! Keep your account balanced daily.

        I figured I had a minute to kill, so I watched these two Shakespeares. I see this all day in the City. Same stuff, different day. Everybody wants to ‘out thug’ the other low-life, and whomever ‘wins’ gets the most street cred.

        However, I did lose 22 IQ points in a minute and 14 seconds. I could’ve put that time to better use – like stabbing myself in the eye with an ice pick…

        I have just watched this youtube filth. One view of this “ghetto” grime is enough. Switched on my British television – perfume advert comes on with a mixed-race group “dancing” and then in affectionate contact, with one of the scantily dressed white girls sitting across a nearly naked black youth’s lap face-front and lustfully caressing his bare torso. Soon on screen a dancing competition with several black-white partners. We now have a new TV teenage “soap” making a similar point. It never stops. “It is no accident” (Trotsky).

            That’s the one, paisan. His killer, Stalin agent Ramon Mercado, served 20 years in a Mexican prison.

            Talk about multiculturalism – a Mexican was used by a Georgian to kill a Jew.

    I’ll stick with Almay and Physicians Formula. They make cosmetic lines pre-selected to flatter green eyes–which is encouraging to me, because I’ve noticed that Women of Colored Eyes are becoming rare. When the cosmetic counter only carries color palates for brown eyes, I know that store is hostile to White women. Same as when I can’t find a pair of jeans in tall or long inseam, but can find petite and average in every size–that tells me that long-limbed Nordics are not welcome.

    • The Ice Queen

      Green is the most rare eye color on earth. I do not have a hard time finding make up to complement green eyes and fair skin, but I live in a white neighborhood. What I do find disconcerting is that at my local big box store all the poster-sized advertisements, especially in the makeup department, are of black and brown women. Most of the customers are white, and the make up selection caters to white customers. It makes no sense to me to have a giant poster of a dark black woman hovering just above the base make up that runs from Classic Ivory to Beige Bisque.

      Of course I can always shop elsewhere, and many times I do.

      • ncpride

        I honestly didn’t know green eyes were rare. That makes me feel proud of my bright green eyes, however, I’ll always be jealous of my mother’s neon green eyes that will catch anyone’s attention, even across a crowded room. Mine aren’t quite THAT bright, but close.

        • The Ice Queen

          Yes, only 1% – 2% of the global population has green eyes. I always thought blue eyes were less common than green, but that is because green eyes run in my family, so they didn’t seem so rare to me. Both of my kids have inherited my green eyes. My daughter’s are a very striking lighter green, almost a sea green. The reason they are so rare is that it’s not simply melanin in the eye, or pigmentation of the iris, but an interaction of genes and other variants. I read about it years ago, but can’t remember where. I wish I had a link for you. It’s a very interesting subject.

          • Tim

            I`m a 1%er!!. Just checked my license to see if I was hazel or green. it said green… Do women like them as much as men do?!?…

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            YES. Girls — especially non-White girls, Asian girls in particular — fall all over my 19-year old green-eyed son. He says they constantly mention his green eyes…

            I tell him they’re coveting his White genes — the ones for high intelligence, blond hair, green eyes, creativity, wonderful sense of humor, curiosity…What the vast majority of non-Whites do not have in their gene pool.

            We are rarae aves.

            And, most importantly, our lineage is dying out.

            Green eyes run in my family too, so I didn’t think they were all that extraordinary until I moved away from the Midwest, and out to Phoenix.
            My best friend also has green eyes–she’s from German stock like I am. I’ve been wondering for a while if green eyes is a Germanic trait. I briefly dated a half-Filipino, half-German guy, who is appears to be White with blonde hair and green eyes, but who rocks the AA quotas by having Hispanic and Asian heritage. Aside from not having anything really in common with the guy, I was worried about having a quadroon accident who didn’t look anything like me. So I broke it off with him.
            I want kids, but I don’t want them badly enough to miscegenate.

          • The Ice Queen

            Green eyes are a Germanic trait. Although rare, they are more often found in people of Celtic and Germanic stock. Brown eyes are dominant, and blue eyes are recessive, green eyes are a combination of genes and variants that line up, and I’m paraphrasing here, that have taken on some melanin, without succumbing to the dominance of brown eyes, and resisted the recession of blue eyes. It’s kind of like winning the eye lottery. Two emeralds. Of course scientists would rightly say it’s a mutation, and it is, but then when I think of the word ‘mutation’ I think of an extra ear or some odd thing like that. If you’re going to be be blessed with a mutation, be grateful it’s two (and not three) green eyes.

            Congratulations for your bravery and loyalty to your race!!! May you live long and prosper!!!

      • mobilebay

        Thanks for letting me know I’m special (green eyes).

      • Anglokraut

        I live on the east side of Phoenix, where the White population is being smothered by mestizo. Finding make-up and clothing that fits is getting more difficult, as stores stop carrying products for people like me, and emphasize products for the brown-eyed and squat women from down Mexico way.

        And you are correct about non-White models selling cosmetics; when I worked at the “Blue Devil”, the Health & Beauty department was a major offender. Even though I was working in a 90% White area, where the winters are so long that the population starts to take on an ivory-like hue by March, most of the models were mocha.

        • Brown-Eyed Devil

          Glad you jumped off the Rainbow Train, Ang’. It’s a one-way ride to heartbreak. The reason you gave was sufficient-that CAN and DOES happen. As for the local merchants.. in my part of N. California, “vibrant diversity” love is off the charts. It isn’t the big chains-which are limited in their presence here by the fanatical NIMBY enviros, it’s the small businesses here that have embraced the NWO with gusto. The climate here for white workers is disgraceful. I have reached the stage where I only patronize five local businesses-all family or employee-owned with nearly all native white English-speakers on staff.

          There’s nearly nothing I cannot get more cheaply and with better service online. I know many bristle at the thought of doing most of their buying, or even some of it, online, but I’ll be damned if I’m going to augment the locals and their lifestyles and bank balances when as a worker, I have been abused repeatedly and been shown the door when I became to “expensive” to keep around. With local opportunities drying up, I have had to live almost exclusively on what I can make online. It’s difficult at first, and there’s no guarantee that I’ll ever replace my former wages in the “real” (ha ha!) world, but the potential is there, and I am sure that in time the number of folks going off radar will be legion. There really isn’t any other alternative, as I see it. Let the local merchants slag you off..they’ll regret it soon enough when their losses begin to catch up with the bottom line. And may that be sooner than later.

            BED, I do almost all my non-food shopping online – I save on state sales taxes that way, which can be considerable.

            I hate having to go into shoe stores looking for a pair of shoes, and have some high-pressure salesman try to sell me the store and fixtures.

      • Anon66

        I depends were you live.Green is very common amongst Russian girls and seems to me more common than blue.The most brilliant emerald green eyes I have ever seen were on a Spanish girl(Catalan)

        • Anon66

          Green eyes are actually the most common in Hungary(land of the Hun) and Turkey. They appear to occur more where people of different backgrounds have mixed.

    • Anonymouse

      That’s very interesting. I’m also tall and long-limbed (arms and legs) and have trouble finding clothes that fit properly. I look a lot like my mother, with her lily-white skin, jet black hair and light blue eyes, and I just don’t see that many young people today with this combination of physical characteristics. I guess we really are a dying breed.

      • Anglokraut

        The coloring you describe makes me think of the actor Tom Hiddleston, who plays Loki in Thor and the Avengers movie. I know a lot of women who think he’s way cuter than Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor.

    Truth in advertising.

  • kjh64

    A lof of cosmetics now have these cheesy titles just to sell more. It makes them seem more exotic to the consumer. Instead of saying just boring old red, they’ll say something like “sizzling redhot” or something. Just advertising.

    • convairXF92

      Some history. Urban Decay’s original palette for lipstick, nail polish and eyeshadow totally emphasized the macabre and weird. They had various shades of fungus green and morbid grays and blacks with names like “Mold”, “Mildew”, and “Frostbite” which latter was a quite realistic shiny blue-black. The inventor/founder was one of the very few female electrical engineers and tech CEOs of the time (was co-founder of Cisco). I think her color choices emanated from feminist sensibilities plus the edginess and aggressiveness of the electronics world.

      The competitors are merely following her lead.

      • Katherine McChesney

        This indicates how far down the scale female taste has gone. Some women who uses these cosmetics look bizarre. A few even like to appear corpse-like.

  • NYB

    Urban decay sounds like nostalgia for the 1970′s, when post-war ecomomies were flat-lining, and the flight to the suburbs was all but complete.

    The ‘urban ghetto’ still carries a mythical cachet for whites who don’t get enough subversion in their lives. It was a staple image in Warhol-esque MTV culture, associating gritty sexuality with the liberalized multi-racial downtown.

    It’s pure fantasy for pampered whites.

  • The Ice Queen

    I saw the most unusual thing while working out at the club tonight on one of those unavoidable
    big screens hanging from the ceiling: a
    shampoo commercial with all white women in it. Four different models,
    all white. Such a rarity these days. I guess someone in the marketing
    department slipped up.

    This is my opinion on makeup, and what I told my daughter:

    Makeup is like salt. It is meant to enhance the beauty that is already there and not to mask it.
