Carlton Banks, Racist: Alfonso Ribeiro Wants You To Know He “Bleeps” White Chicks

By Debbie Schlussel

As a fan of “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air” when I was younger, I always thought Alfonso Ribeiro–who played Carlton Banks–was much more talented than star Will Smith.  It’s a lot of hard work to play the straight man while someone else has the easy, funny lines, laughs, and gags.  Plus, over the years, I’d seen Ribeiro sing and dance in Broadway’s “The Tap Dance Kid” and watched him act on TV’s “Silver Spoons.”

Et Tu, Carlton Banks?

But I’m no longer a fan of this low-class has-been.  When he’s not doing videos for Disney by day (with his young daughter), he’s bragging by night about how he [bleeps] White women. (Watch the video.)  I don’t care who dates whom, or what races they are, but his in-your-face “monologue” on the topic is racist and meant to irritate and offend.  I grew up in a majority Black city (where I still live), went to a majority Black high school.  But this act by Ribeiro is beyond moronic.  It’s not about interracial relationships.  It’s about an obsession with lording it over people of the opposite race (a la the “not guilty” verdict in the O.J. Simpson murder trial) and constantly referring to their race in an offensive way.

I’m not sure what his motivation for bragging that “I [blank] White Women” is:  racism against Black women, racism against easy blonde White women, lording it over White men, trying to expand his O.J.-esque harem, or who knows what?  Maybe it’s some kind of revenge for White slave-owners more than a century ago sleeping with Black slaves and more than a century before he was born.  Any way you slice it, it’s racist, offensive, and has echoes of the Oprah and Gail King conversation bragging about how many White people work for them.    White people are the slaves of Oprah, and they’re the sex slaves of Carlton Banks.  Wow, you’ve come a long way, Black America.  Here’s a tip:  lording this stuff over a particular race won’t heal racism.  It is racism.  And it exacerbates it.

Remember the Terrell Owens – Nicollete Sheridan “Desperate Housewives” / “Monday Night Football” skit?  I didn’t think it was a big deal  as many people did, other than the suggestiveness that continues to pervade every aspect of media to which kids are exposed.  But I understand why  it upset people.

If Ribeiro wasn’t a racist, he wouldn’t have to make a big deal about the race of the women he is, um, “dating” (euphemism). Now that he’s fat and over the hill for Hollywood, he needs something to make some noise. And this is it.

Alfonso Ribeiro Wants You to Know: He “Blanks” White Chicks

And you wonder what Disney is thinking employing this guy.  I mean, would he want his daughter to see this?  He’s onstage doing his “I [bleep] White Chicks” act with has-been boy-band member Joey Fatone, his co-host on the Disney father-daughter videos.  Nice job, Magical Kingdom.  Why not make it official:  Disney Presents a porno movie with Carlton Banks and Snow White?  You know, just to be consistent with this new form of “civil rights” advancement.

Time to retire “the Carlton Dance” to the dustbin of has-been showbiz history. It’s been replaced by the “I [Bleep] White Chicks” rant. Welcome to Barack Obama’s “post-racial” I “Bleep” White Chicks America.

“Maybe it’s some kind of revenge for White slave-owners more than a century ago sleeping with Black slaves and more than a century before he was born.”

Well if this is the M O, I’d say that Ribeiro and others (including many whites) are sticking it to us all very effectively– in leaving us the fatherless generation of bastard kids that grow up with no fathers, and then they learn how to do the same–father more bastards while they do the skanks.

I don’t know about Snow White but it looks like he ate the seven “little people”.

What an unfortunate fate of someone like you said DS is so talented. I only suspect his life must really be empty if the best he can come up with is who he chooses to sleep with. Interracial relationships go back well before the creation of America so one whoould believe its not a big deal today. I’m waiting for the day we can be with anyone and not feel as though its some retribution or payback.

I think there is also the forbidden fruit syndrome playing here. On both sides. However, I know some white guys that are totally into Asian girls. However, most relationships in the California scene or bar scene are about sexual attraction. So Ribiero knows that money and power attracts a variety of women. And people wonder why there is such a high divorce rate and high illegitimate rate. People wonder why are these girls are with bad boys or losers. The girls are physically attracted to them. (A reason why these guys spend so much time in the gym.) They get the guy and then foolishly think they will change them to be their Prince Charming. These relationship inevitably don’t work. By the time they figure it out, she has 2 kids and he is on to the next girl. Fathers or lack of fathers don’t teach their daughters what to seek in a real man.

And to also think he hosts GSN’s Catch 21, a variation of Wink Martindale’s early 1970’s game show Gambit…both of which are produced by Merrill Heatter!

He’s an insecure fellow trying to boost his own ego.
.
For the record, I’m Black, and I date mostly white women.

James on November 10, 2009 at 5:10 pm

I am a black Caribbean woman and I viewed that video too and was disgusted by it. Like you I too was disappointed that Alfonso would degraded women like that. I don’t care if a woman is white, black or yellow, no woman deserves to have a man talk about them like that.
I hope that the white women who date that obese, baby teeth has been think up and stop posing on his arm. Disney should drop him too for his potty mouth.

Obviously you don’t understand racism. Ribero’s bragging about white women isn’t racist against white women, it is a put down of black women. White women are seen as the height and femininity and black men who date or marry them often feel they have made it. They often put down black women as angry, ugly hypersexual and manish. Ribero is an azzhole but not how you think. He loves white women and hates women who look like him.

As far a Oprah goes, you are soooo wrong. Oprah has crafted her career to be white friendly. Her discussion of how many whites work for her is another way to make sure that her white audience know that they are first and foremost in her mind.Oprah shies away from any totally black cause and hypes the few whites who help blacks. How that woman can drive through Chicago every day and not help black children is beyond me. If she did so she might alienate her white audience and she is too much of a mammy to do that.

Wow thanks eshowoman for enlightening all us dumb whites. You certainly have contributed to peace in our time. Such a smart authority on race.

I just love it when black people lecture whites on racism as if their skin makes them the ayatolla of race relations. As they vote in 95% blocks for racist democrats.

It was in poor taste what he said and how he said it! The crowd and Panther did not seem to be bothered by what he was saying (not that they weren’t, just not evident by the video). What is more surpriseing to me is your response to what he said. Why does it bother you so?! I could care less if anybody of any race made claims to only have sex with my group of people. Who cares! Who cares what the their reasons are, it’s their problem, if it is a problem! This discussion should not be about race but, the manner in which he said what he said. But morales are going out the building with God in America! And this is what we get!!! Lack of morales is the issues! We need to turn back to God our Creator and His morality and things like this would not happen. This is the real issue, not the fact of who he wise to say who he is intimate with (which he should keep to himself in the first place). Your response did not make you look any better then him. Very unintelligent! You can do better then this!

Everyone loves the white women, why would he downgrade.

Zeddy on October 14, 2012 at 10:30 pm

Debbie Schrussell, no wonder I’ve never heard of you. Your writing stinks and your logic is, at best, moronic. It seems like you’re struggling with racism yourself. If your hope is to garner notoriety by menstruating pungent coagulated blood on a talented artist, your days are numbered as menopause is about to set in. Seems like you’re pushing 50 as far as I can ascertain from your picture.
It is low-life, ill-educated, worm like you who dilute the severity and awareness of racism in America. Stop crying wolf. There are more important race issues out there to tackle and to write about. May I suggest hormone replacement therapy?

Actually.. He’s Dominican. So good job blaming it all on blacks just cause of the color of his skin… And how is saying i have alot of white people working for me or saying i have sex with white women racist.. The KKK is racist, Nazis are racist.. If your racist means you dont like a race of people. So you obviously wouldnt hire, or have sex with someone of that race.. You are just so sensitive, and hateful towards blacks, for them always throwing down the race card that anything anyone says is racist to you.

I am only 15. But I can see how ignorant you are.

Rudezilla9 on April 8, 2013 at 10:31 pm

Your ignorant and too freakin emotional….

Anywayssssssssssssssss,

He is not Dominican! His parents are from Trinidad/Tobago.
He is West Indian!!!!!! Born in NYC!

Who cares who screwssssss!

When it comes to racism, “developed” societies at most are very undeveloped. The creation of artifficial divisions like “black schools”, “black neightboods”, etc. is, for sure, the root of the problem. When people grows up believing in the concept of races, it becomes a very easy “justification” for the social disequality.
Since minorities are (most of the times) the disavanteged ones, the cause and consequence concept is reversed; and some people starts to think that for being minorities with some specific characteristic, that fact is, somehow, responsible for their situation, and in some cases, the minorities starts believing it and even, feel pround about it. And at that point that I say that everybody starts to believing in the race concept, which is propagated to the next generations.
But, the real reason of the social disavantages are historical and economical ones. I’m not expert in american history (since I’m not american), but I guess that after the official end of slavery, the ex-slaves and their descendents had a hard time searching equal oportunities (economicals and socials), plus a strong social prejudice, ended up that the ex-slaves descendents were in inferiors conditions. The equality of rights were pretty late compared to the end of slavery, which gave time to worsen the situation.
By the other side, the high economical development of the society is a major cause of the conservative and reactionary vision against minorities groups. Those economical conquests, plus the media vision, increases the proud for belonging to a advantaged group and make peolpe fearsome of losing it. This creates internal divisions and goes on and on…
in conclusion, as long as exists wide social and economical dequality, will exists prejudicy.

This amount of ignorance that was put into writing this post is absolutely staggering. Not to mention the vast majority of the comments are absolutely asinine. Foolishness begets foolishness I suppose.

Jack on August 9, 2013 at 8:20 am

Ok- so I’m a sucker for being drawn in to writing a comment, but like most readers who commented, I’m more annoyed by the person who wrote this than whatever Alfonso Ribeiro did or said.

What a whining, ignorant, self-righteous diatribe. What’s worse… How personally offended you were by something so unremarkable, or that you blew it up and chose to post about it?

Do I overstep my bounds/have the right as a Jew to tell her she’s making the rest of us Jews look dumb?

Well, I guess you win, you got my attention. There’s ten minutes of my life I’ll never get back. Bah.

Zubs on January 7, 2014 at 1:48 pm

the girl in the pic is a really hot pornstar…good for him

John on February 10, 2014 at 8:30 pm

He bangs good looking white women whereas most black men bang ugly fat white women. Most men white, asian, hispanic, middle eastern, east indian, native american, etc will NEVER EVER date or marry any woman who’s had sex with black men.
