Minny is perceived as someone who stands up for herself, but she is also an abused woman. For example, when Hilly Holbrook fires Minny, Hilly ensures that no job offers are forthcoming from any of the other women in the Junior League. Fortunately, Celia Foote is euphoric when Minny agrees to work for her. Unaware of the unspoken rules of white domination and black deference, Celia shows Minny that not all white women are iniquitous. Celia's benevolence gives Minny the courage to leave her abusive husband.
Nana, as well as the unborn child, narrate the decisions and journey of the Peazant family; their narration project more realistic and accurate representation of African-American woman than previously seen in cinema. One of the mechanisms of this representation was through Nana and the unborn child’s unconventional narration, which did not depend on Hollywood’s usual clichés. Such clichés which typically inaccurately represented or underrepresented not only African American women, but also all women. African-American women in films are frequently characterized by clichés. For example, African-American women rarely take precedent in the maintenance of the narrative, instead often being pigeonholed as a secondary character.

As a result of this unusual behavior, he has retreated from socializing much because it makes him feel uncomfortable around stranger.
As one of the most influential entertainment producers, Disney dominates the global market for ages attracting the countless audience around the world. However, Disney’s most famous “‘princess’ fairy tale stories” (Barker, 2010, p. 492) are criticized for racism and sexism. In 2007, Disney confirmed production of the film, The Princess and the Frog, featuring the first African-American Disney princess, Tiana. For Disney this film was the response to the accusation of racism and sexism represented in its animation. Also, it was filled with African American parents’ anticipation and excitement who longed for a non-stereotypical black woman on the screen (Breaux, 2010, p. 399).

She lacks trust, she does not trust anymore about her condition so she feels comfortable when nobody knows about it. As her counselor I would ask her open ended question more for her to tell me more about her family and how she is planning to tell because she saying the other part of her want to tell them but the other part does not want to tell them about her condition. As her counselor I would talk sense in her for her to understand that it is important for her parents to know about her illness. Firstly I would talk about confidentiality that everything we talking about are between me and her and inviting her parents to counselling also with her will be a good idea for her to open up and tell her parents about the

Zenobia turns against this not only vocally, but also physically: on more than one occasion, Priscilla is separated from the “pack” and Zenobia clings to Hollingsworth’s side. Priscilla doesn’t complain about this, though it’s obvious this upsets her because she cares deeply for Hollingsworth as well. Her silence is stark contrast to Zenobia’s outspoken personality. Zenobia makes a valiant attempt to be the perfect woman though; she allows Westervelt near Priscilla, and is unkind to her
By this I mean she really step away from her romantic comedy persona into more serious role. The Jean character did wonderful things for her. We have a woman that thinks she is entitled to be racist as all her notions about black people have turn truth. She always thought she may be rob by this person an at the end it happened.

I choose this essay because, I feel that no one is mentally prepare of what can happen next.
