HUH. CAN I BREATHE
My sentiments on this final day of August. What a month you’ve been. Shamelessly cue Pharrell’s ‘Happy’ and dance into the moonlight. See you in September!
Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.
But white folks too quick to say we have ‘enough’ roles for Black folks in media…
