So…

Martha just happens to be the least favorite Doc Who companion?

Cassie just happens to be the least popular Dean Winchester girlfriend? 

And it has nothing to do with racism?

Bullshit.

Lets not forget that people CHEERED when Tara died in True Blood, as well as folks calling Alisha a bitch on Misfits, Mercedes being lazy (and apparently, fat black women can never get a white man) on Glee and Uhura being ragged on for kissing Spock in Star Trek.

But it ain’t about racism tho. Despite black women in fandoms getting shit on the most, it ain’t about racism. Nope. It just ALWAYS happens to be the black woman…

Welp…

the more i read, the more i realize that my father was an afro-pessimist. which is probably why it feels so comfortable to me.

he used to say things (under his breath) like, people would rather be anything,…

Alisha from Misfits is your example? What’s her super-power? (SPOILER) She’s already portrayed as extremely sexual, and her super-power is hyper-sexualization. Don’t use her as an example. 

I am using her as an example precisely because that was where she started & then her story changed. She’s not hyper sexual any more (in fact she’s become the damsel of the piece), & her power has been changed. That’s a whole lot of character development & making a black woman the center of a romantic storyline without her needing to be perfect.

It’s actually a fucking cause for celebration, tbqh.

I might possibly have done a dance when Superhoodie turned out to be hot Future!Simon. I definitely did one when he treated her like she was someone to be cherished. How often do we see that with black women?
