Kudos to the black women who are making their way in this world in spite of the odds against them. I’m not speaking of the commonly known odds. I’m speaking of the odds we (black women) have put on ourselves within the last decade. The video “model”, the reality TV overnight celebrity, the twerk team instafame females who have adapted this rotten mentality of eyelash extensions, bright colored booty shorts, and thousand dollar sew in, glue in, floor length weaves as beauty.
Watching television realizing Hollywood views entertainment as Reality TV, (it seems shows don’t make it unless they’re reality shows) its refreshing to find a show-drama, murder mystery or sitcom that you enjoy. I’m excited for the black woman image being portrayed through 2 characters on Primetime TV.
“How To Get Away With Murder” star, Aja Naomi King portrays an ambitious law student, educated, and determined to get what she wants in life through hard work. “Thank you Shonda Rhimes for this image- among other images of black women, you are just a dynamic writer who helps to shift America’s view of US.”
“Sleepy Hollow” star Nicole Beharie is a gorgeous actress who plays a strong female lead that could’ve been written for a girl of any race. Black actresses strive for those roles, roles that were written to be delivered through talent regardless of race or cast type. Julliard trained, with several roles under her belt, this lady is doing well.
I’ll keep watching these ladies to see where their talent takes them. I’m sure I’ll see them again. Black America needs those prominent black Actors & Actresses, and these two are well on their way.
Just a little of the TRUTH…
