Links of the Day

Fandom and its hatred of Black women characters
The only time that black women get unconditional l love in Sci Fi/Fantasy or in any other media genre is when they devote their lives to the white characters. They cannot have any kind of personal life and always sacrifice any attempt at one for the white cast mate. The most popular characterization of black women throughout the history of film and television has been the maid and the recent popularity of The Help just shows the need for many whites to see black women as extensions of own desires and not fully viable human beings. Narcissism is one of the attributes of whiteness. The fact that whites can write these characters with such little knowledge or interaction with black women, the fact that fans with same background feel free to hate these characters with such vitriol and the fact that many simply ignore and dismiss the assertions of black women about this phenomenon are examples of what I call racial sociopathy. Racial sociopathy is the inability to see POC as humans unless they fulfill white needs and desires, the inability to empathize with the experiences of POC, the compulsion to degrade and dismiss people of color for their own pleasure and the denial of all of the above in a blatantly racist manner.

This should be titled Taraji P. Henson: ‘There’s So Much Competition for Black Women In Movie Industry’ BECAUSE THERE ARE SO FEW ROLES! The real title totally miscontrues what Ms. Henson actually says.
