I'm sorry---I'm black and happily married, and I don't buy that...I may just be whistling in the dark, but I can't think of any men, black OR white, who would willingly date someone like that...all 4 of those traits get on my last d**n nerve, because (to me anyway) that's 'drama-queen' material, and I don't have the time, patience, or temperament to deal with that...

Some clueless idiot somewhere made up his/her mind that those traits are part of what makes up a 'strong black woman'---what utter bulldirkey! My wife is the epitome of a 'strong black woman', as were her mother, MY mother, my sister---you get my drift...they showed their strength not by being 'Laquisha Ghettofabulous', but by their words and deeds...no sass, no sistagirl bionic neckroll, no tight clothing and definitely NOT ghetto...so let's lay that tired, silly stereotype to rest, shall we?

You've just described one of my managers perfectly! You left out having a child with an absentee father. She's got one of them also.

I personally think that it is very sad when people make a conscious decision to overtly stereotype women based on their racial backgrounds.

While there will always be an example to point to which will fit the "stereotyped" characteristics, there are many more who do not.

As a Black woman, I personally know that the stereotypes that are assigned to Black women do not personally fit me but it is a huge hurdle when encountering people who operate out of ignorance.

The problem with stereotyping people is that if you buy into them (regardless of what group of people) you miss out on the opportunity to genuinely get to know other types of people. Additionally, the people who use stereotypes to feel a sense of "superiorty" are actually fooling themselves.

In recent television I see this being done by a lot of young Latina women lol I don't think I've ever actually seen anyone do it in real life.
