That’s the assertion of yet another self-identified liberal who says that there aren’t a lot of black women on television because white men don’t find black women attractive, because we’re all racist. And tons and tons of people broke down laughing at this sad sack because clearly, that’s just not the case. Even among self-identified conservatives, the vast majority could come up with at least some black women they identified as physically attractive. I guess the regressive left loses again.
But it was an interesting topic so I thought I’d revisit it again here. It got me thinking about actresses on TV that I thought were cute and the more that I thought about it, there are quite a few non-white actresses that I think look great, just on modern TV alone. So here’s my list, in alphabetical order by show name and it could be a long longer if I spent more time thinking about it. I guess the absurdly racist liberal left haven’t got the slightest idea what they’re talking about.
There’s a really good new show on Canadian TV called Frankie Drake Mysteries, set in the 1920s about a female detective. Her partner, Trudy Clarke, played by Chantel Riley, is really cute. The character itself is bright, creative and talented (Riley is has a beautiful singing voice that I could listen to for hours). Honestly, of everyone on the show, if I was going to be shallow and only pay attention to looks, she’s probably the best.
Moving back to American shows with The Flash. Candice Patton who plays Iris West is very attractive as well. Again, another strong female character who is intelligent, brave and creative in her own right without having to rely on a man, although let’s be honest, Flash does have to save her (and everyone else) a lot. I’ve met her in person and, while I didn’t spend a lot of time with her, she was really nice for the limited amount of time that we’ve spent together.
On to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow which has two gorgeous black women right now. Masie Richarson-Sellers plays Amaya/Vixen and Tracy Ifeachor plays Kuasa, her granddaughter. Again, it’s not just looks they have going for them, their characters are strong, independent, self-reliant and smart. They aren’t damsels in distress that exist to be taken care of, they can kick all of the asses and take all of the names and outperform a lot of the male members of the cast in physical and mental prowess. I don’t know, maybe you’re seeing a pattern here.
Getting back to Canada, Murdoch Mysteries had, until last season, a gorgeous black woman working as assistant coroner and I’m really sorry that she’s gone. Mouna Traore was Dr. Rebecca James. Of course, they had to portray her as a black woman struggling in a white world, but she was one of the strongest characters, male or female on the show. Great actress.
Jumping to a show that’s no longer on the air, but Sleepy Hollow had two really beautiful black women on it, sisters Abbie and Jenny Mills, played respectively by Nicole Beharie and Lyndie Greenwood. Both of them are really good looking in my opinion. They’re also both excellent actresses.
Now I could probably do the same thing for other actresses of any racial group you could mention, but I think that’s plenty for the moment. I mean, Jade Eshete over on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency is cute, if she’d only do something about that hair. Of course, I’m not actually interested in any of them, even if I met them in person, because I’m happily married, but the idea that white people think black women are ugly is just absurd. Even conservative white men who aren’t racists can find beauty in women of any color. We don’t care. It doesn’t matter to us. It’s just that the regressive left are so busy playing the race card that they’ve given up even pretending that what they say is factually correct or not. It just doesn’t matter. But that’s not our problem, it’s theirs and it’s pathetic.
