Sassy Black Women Are Dominating Late Night TV Dramas

kerry-washington-viola-davis-taraji-p-henson-tracther-trailher

Being a black woman has never been easy as we have always been stereotyped for being independent, smart-mouth, neck-rolling women who don’t need no man for nothing cause we can hold our own kinda women with big lips, hips and ass to go along with it. Although that isn’t true for all of us, that is what has been portrayed of us for years, but it now seems to be an ongoing trend in the entertainment industry that everybody and their mama is gravitating to.

It all started within the last couple of years after Shonda Rhimes premiered her now hit TV series Scandal starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope who not only is a “fixer” but one sassy ass pit bull in a skirt. Shonda recently launched yet another hit show How To Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis who’s also known for her straight-to-the-point, no-nonsense attitude and gets things done. Now we have Taraji P. Henson starring as Cookie in her new show Empire and after it premiered last Wednesday, that’s all I heard about was her character and how she didn’t play no games.

For hundreds of years, black women have been deemed the most dominate race of women in the world. Although we’re the most ridiculed, we’re also the most imitated. We have full lips, wide hips and big butts which was once upon a time frowned upon, but is now very well appreciated and most of all imitated.

If you look around nowadays, that’s all you see are women of other races getting lip, hips and butt injections (although some of these black chicks are getting a little too out of control these days too, but that’s another story). Rocking their hair in braids and doing everything they can to be like us, but don’t want to be called us. Now black women are on top in the entertainment industry and everyone is loving it. The once sassy, neck-rolling black woman is not being hated on, but yet praised and recognized as a strength and independence and a lot of other women are starting to follow suit.

What lead to this though??? I wonder….

Why is it now that the world is so obsessed with seeing black women in leading roles being the typical stereotyped black woman that was once ridiculed for so many years? Is it because we have a black First Lady? Or is it because deep down our counterparts have been envying our strength and ability to dominate this industry and they are taking notes???

What do you all think about black women dominating the late night drama TV shows now? Are more of our counterparts trying to be like us and take notes??? I’d love to hear from you!

  5. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text
    in your post seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Kudos

  6. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting
    a little research on this. And he actually bought me dinner

  8. Have you ever considered about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what

    website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its field.

    Awesome blog!
