The sex toy.
Rihanna/Chris Brown was only in the news because Ri was hot. Ciara, Beyonce and Kerry Hilson are only selling records because they are nice to look at.
The crackhead/hoodrat. Even Halle Berry had to play a crackhead... twice (Losing Isaiah, Jungle Fever) before getting the chance to move "up" to the sex toy.
Do I really need to list the countless mammy images in today's media?
Beyond these images - where do you (American Black women) exist?
