The only black woman among the team of actresses of all races from the movie Pitch Perfect 2 and she gets to play 'the butch'. You can barely see her as a female, she is the 'male' of the group essentially.
First, black men do not belong to black women, or vice versa.And if it was done without conscious thought then realize how strong and persistent the construction of black women as masculine continues to be.Indeed it appears not to have waned since the time of Sojourner Truth who asked in her historic speech in 1851 of the same title, 'Ain't I a woman' .I love “Scandal” and “How to Get Away With Murder,” because prime-time TV, for once, has two strong black female leads.However, it troubles me that not one, but both of these women are engaged in affairs. While I have worked to point out what black women face in the area of interracial romance, and life in general, I recognize that there is hope. But there is still work to do, and it is dirty work. There is no need to continue to polarize people into a spectrum of color. When people are grouped together simply on physical features, then stereotyped and systemically held down, it is extremely problematic.These relationships were no different than those in my racial category except for one dirty little issue: race.
