I know there's Wilhelmina Slater, but other than her (and she's rich and light-skinned), all the black women in Ugly Betty are stupid. And fat. There's a definite strain of fat, stupid, sexually desperate black women who make fools of themselves for the male characters. And the nonfat, black escapee companion of Mrs. Meade is a huge stereotype. Making the stereotype a joke doesn't make it less of a stereotype, people.
Why, Ugly Betty, why? This season hasn't been great, but you were so refreshingly knowledgeable about race and power. What's up with hating on poor or middle class black women?
