Now, I grant that I did not watch TV One or BET (I don't usually). I watched local and world news, Sunday Morning on CBS, and parts of a movie, and Cold Case. Sorry I can't remember which movie but they had no Black characters in the main roles. Oh yeah I was clicking through and saw Tempest Bledsoe on Pet Stars.
I found 5 Black actresses with natural hair that were featured in TV or commercial roles.
When you watch television, do you lock stalk too? Because I am an afro aficionado, I look for those too and brown people in general.
I observed that all the Black womyn I saw were featured with White people exclusively. Interesting?! In the context that I typically see Black womyn in real life, this situation is rare. Maybe because I live in Atlanta with a high percentage of African-Americans? Maybe not! What are your thoughts? Are these "token" roles, a validation issue/stereotype or simply a coincidence?
1. Crestor- The woman has beautiful, blond curly locks.
2. Nancy Giles- Don't you just love her? She is cleaning her closet on CBS Sunday Morning. This is something I need to do.
3. E-harmony- Do you think this is a real couple or just an act?
4.Tempest Bledsoe. She was on an episode of Pet Stars on Animal Planet. I heard she married "Ron" , Dwayne Wanye's friend on a Different World.
5. Tracie Thoms from Rent, Deathproof, and Cold Case. I saw her on Cold Case. I really am a huge fan.
