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…

One of the biggest problems I feel is that minority people accept what pays the bills.Like Tyler Perry movies, stereotypical roles, junkies, the help, and so forth. You do have to work twice as hard to have a career and be recognized.

“i see you”

1. when a black person has deducted the reasoning behind your scheme

2. when a black person rationalizes your reasoning. 

3. When a black person wants you to know that they’re impressed by your.. Style, job, car you drive, project you’re working on, etc, etc
