Hazel Scott, on the other hand, became a very important figure because of her outspoken personality, “a proud and demanding performer, who never tried to conceal … her color” (Bogle 109). Scott would not play degrading roles. This blackness that is seen in many black films today, is represented by many black actors, each in a distinct manner. Lupita Nyong’o and Taraji P. Henson are two illustrations of Dorothy Dandridge and Hazel Scott 1950s roles with a modern twist.

In Cain’s book, Phyllis is so much more than a young, cunning seductress and the cold-blooded black widow spider hanging in her web. She is pathological; but yet, she is more than just a little crazy. Leaving the reader somehow feeling sympathy for the characters like the bond between them and allows for an emotional connection to occur, which is James wants to do in this
People tend to only claim that I 'm black but never Hispanic. But I 'm a Black/African American Hispanic/Latin American women.

Ironically, though white perspective was considered repressed, sexual duties and childbearing were of primary importance to white men as they were inexplicably drawn to the ‘exotic charms’ of African womanhood and beauty. Early modern English writers did conventionally set the black female figure against one that was white—and thus beautiful. They were particularly intrigued by tawny appearances of the African Women.1 In June 1647, Englishman Richard Ligon recorded the physical appearance of a black woman he encountered in his True and Exact History of Barbadoes: “she was a Negro of the greatest beauty and majesty together: that ever I saw in one woman. Her stature large, and excellently shap’d, well favour’d, full eye’d, and admirably grac’d . .
In “The Story of An Hour” also by Chopin, Chopin conveys the emotion going through this women (main character, the women, that was not named) when she was notified of her husband 's death, but these emotions had to be concealed because it would be deemed unnatural and the women knew she would get punished. The quote by Chopin showing is, “She did not stop to ask if it were not a monstrous joy that held her. A clear and exalted perception enabled her to dismiss the suggestion as trivial. She knew that she would weep again…” (Chopin). Women were obviously afraid of being punished by people (men) who would see the women’s emotions and actions as unnatural.

It made me feel that no matter how smart you are or how many achievements you have if you are Black you will be considered a last choice. You can work your way up from absolutely nothing and still get questioned because of the color of your skin. When stereotypes became one of our discussion topics it helped me answered a lot unsolved questions at the time. For instance, knowing where stereotypes come from. I believe the media plays an outstanding part in the portrayal of negative stereotypes of black woman.
Many black women are walking around with a smile on their faces, flawless hairstyles, and beautiful apparel while they are dying on the inside. I’m a true believer in looking good but I’m also a true believer in a woman being honest with herself and dealing with internal issues. If some women really evaluated what was really going on inside them, many of them would notice they are filled with anger, resentment, bitterness, or just plain unhappy with themselves. This level of brokenness is not only destroying them but everyone they interact with on a daily basis. Some black women feel that other women are a threat to them because of their level of success.

But breathless commentators sometimes talk about these qualities in a way that buys into what sociologist Delia Douglas, in an article on the Williams sisters published in 2004 by the Sociology of Sport Online called "the essentialist logic of racial difference, which has long sought to mark the black body as inherently different from other bodies (Harris). "The result is that Williams 's athleticism is attributed to her ethnicity.” In todays society most media reporters and social media portrays the famous tennis player Serena Williams the way they do because she is a “black female”. They view Serena Williams as manly, untamed, and boisterous, because of her
The media also hasn 't helped by portraying curly and nappy hair as wild, dirty, nasty, and crazy. It all dates back to slavery. Black hair was reviled and it was so different, it was assumed to be bad. In order to fit in, Black women tried to look more White and become more Eurocentric. Though, no one forces black women to straighten their hair, it has always been taught the white man 's standard of beauty is ideal.
