The unfortunate thing for black women is that the world has magnified our anger more than anything else. The infamous “angry black woman” stereotype stems from the ignorance of past generations. It officially became a thing in the 19th century in what was a conscious effort to demean black women. White entertainers painted their faces and portrayed Black people as stereotypical caricatures, including the angry black woman. I also recommend finding Black role models, influences, and content that represents Black women in a positive light.
