10 common black girl stereotypes

On March 23, 2012 on Disney channel, ” Doc McStuffins” was debuted on Disney junior a show about a 6-year-old African-American girl name Dottie McStuffins, whose mother is  a doctor and has a stay at home dad who usual spends his time in the garden.The little girl follows  in her mothers footsteps by opening a clinic to treat all her dolls and stuff animals. although the show is aimed at preschoolers, I find myself watching the episodes on Disney Junior. I enjoy watching the show, because one: she is so cute two: she teaches kids about healthy living and how to live healthy and three: she breaks a stereotype for colored girls. We all have been( in our life time) stereotyped in a particular category either because of our skin color, the way we dress, how we speak to others, or just on what we decide to reveal to the world. And lets face it, we have stereotyped other people also ( Dont pretend like you havent). Below I have come up with a list  of 10 common black girl stereotypes:

1. We are Welfare queens 

2. We are loud and ghetto

    

3. We don’t work out because we don’t like to sweat out our perms

4. We are close minded/ not adventurous

5.  We are strong and do not need a man

6.  We have huge backsides

7.  We are angry! and or have bad attitudes

                                                                        

8. We are only pretty if we look like:

9.  If we don’t look like Beyoncé we usually look like this:

 

10. We are uneducated

We all are subjected to stereotypes or we apply stereotypes to other people,  the saying ” never judge a book by it covers” goes with this. Dont be so judgemental of other people, and if you don’t like someone based on what you have “heard” about that person’s race, or the way he/she dresses, you should definitely take five minutes to at least introduce yourself to them and actually hold a conversation with them. I think you are going to be surprise!

  1. My My My, This is so true and thats what makes it so sad, and with all these reality shows it makes it so much worse. This is a timeless post!!

  2. UNFAIR! At least one of those pictures was a guy in drag. Is this all really the stereotype? Went to a “black” church for a while when we were living in the city…a lot of those Sisters of mine didn’t fit the stereotype.

  3. OMG, SO FUNNY,,LOL, I’M SORRY BUT MOST DAYS I DONT WANT TO SWEAT OUT MY PERM,,,LOL ON A SERIOUS NOTE SOME OF THESE THINGS MADE ME ANGRY BECAUSE IT WAS EMBARRASSING AND “SOME” VERY TRUE.

    • A couple of my friends told me the samething about the perm thing, its funny I suggested they go natural lol. But yeah I wish some of those things were not true but sometimes they are, and sometime you can meet people that falls into each category You have to laugh on the inside a little cause they is nothing else you can do.
