We need to be having a conversation about heritage, what it truly is to be black, looking at ways as a society to stop being a slave to these stereotypes that exist about us -- we are a great people with a great story of endurance that isn't yet over.
I've come to the conclusion that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Why is it that folks at-large are still labeling those of us who are affirmed enough to say what we mean as an "angry Black woman?"
The Angry Black Woman trope, or some version of it, is commonly used in Hollywood. Reality television is no different. To help me understand this, I decided to confront the latest ABW to hit our screens: Deena Jacobs.
