Kindly Read the ENTIRE Caption BELOW.  I co-sign EVERY FUCKING WORD.  

September 2. 


A few noteworthy items about this poster:

It’s not a black actor portraying a cartoon of an obese matriarchal black woman.

This black woman is not presented as being a part of an ensemble piece.

…and it’s not her shadow, anonymous back, or a cutout.

All of the above are far more common than simply seeing a black woman presented as a fully realized person on her own, on a movie poster.

Just something to ponder.


The French poster for Colombiana

I’d love to see an American movie house come out with a poster like this targeted for the states. #nevergonnahappen

Reblogged for commentary – made me think.

Well, isn’t she a Latina?
