Continuing our discussion on the Beauty Model and Colorism; how does colorism affect men, black men in particular? How do men form opinions about black women based on the images created in the media and how do you think black women see themselves. As an example, recently an Univision TV Host was fired for comparing First Lady Michelle Obama to “Planet of the Apes.” Feel free to use music videos, TV shows and films as example. Please read the Univision article and two articles about Viola Davis’ challenges in Hollywood as a dark skinned actress. Please incorporate the articles and the readings about the Beauty Model and Colorism into your comments.
Next week we will talk about the Romantic vs. Sexual Deviant and watch the classic film, Claudine. Have a great weekend.
