AWBB Sterotype of the Day: Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth
Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth was reality TV’s first angry black woman. first came into the spotlight in 2004 after becoming a participant on NBC’s reality TV Series, “The Apprentice” and starring business mogul Donald Trump. With her no-nonsense toughness and controversial behavior, she soon became the “woman America loved to hate.” Since her participation on the first season of The Apprentice, Manigault-Stallworth has gone on to appear on over 20 other reality shows. Despite her former career as a democratic political consultant, she came off as aggressive, mean and heartless. Despite her protests it is obvious that she has played the stereotype to the hilt and reality TV has highlighted her traits as though they are biologically programmed in every black woman. When beautiful, talented black women enter the boardroom, do visions of Omarosa dance in the heads of her overwhelmingly male colleagues. She is set to star in her own dating show on TV-One. The ABWW will keep you informed on all the shenanigans.
