The Stream - Beyond the ‘angry black woman’ (by AlJazeeraEnglish)

The mammy, Jezebel and “angry black woman” – All are stereotypes of African American females used by whites to justify slavery and racial inferiority. But even today, why do these black female tropes continue to resurface in popular US media, and what is the societal impact of these stereotypes for African American women?

In case you missed it, here’s yesterday’s episode of Al Jazeera’s The Stream. Thanks again to The Stream and to everyone that tuned in!

Side note, in the broadcast I mentioned some notable people worth following that I’ve learned a lot from: @WeSeeRace @prisonculture and, but I gave the incorrect address for Gradient Lair. My apologies!
