I was just watching the 2006 film "Poseidon" and there were lots of scenes of the women being immersed in water and having to travel through flooded tanks & passageways. Except for the captain, there were no other Blacks in the film. I realized that I'd never seen any film that shows Black women getting their hair wet. No Black women in water disaster films sich as Poseidon, Jaws, the 1996 film Daylight, etc. There was a Black woman in The Abyss, but she was a sub pilot & wasn't in the flooding scenes. There were Black men in Deep Blue Sea, but no Black women. Is it that producers won't cast Black women in water films, or do Black actresses refuse to participate in them?

This is seriously what occupies your mind?

Get over your hair. Get over your race. Stop blaming the media for all your insecurities.

Yeah, black actresses would prefer to starve than take roles that show them in a realistic light rather than the Egyptian Queen fantasies that sheboons seem to have conjured to soothe their egos.

Weird.
