Yes black ladies, they are still at it!
The only black woman among the team of actresses of all races from the movie Pitch Perfect 2 and she gets to play 'the butch'. Look how she is squatting in the picture. You can barely see her as a female, she is the 'male' of the group essentially. It's all very deliberate and in line with broader representations of black women. And if it was done without conscious thought then realize how strong and persistent the construction of black women as masculine continues to be. Indeed it appears not to have waned since the time of Sojourner Truth who asked in her historic speech in 1851 of the same title, 'Ain't I a woman' . Actually this trailer image has half the number of women of the other fuller poster were I counted at least 12 different actresses, each of them allowed to look leggy, feminine and longhaired except the black one among them (they do all they can to keep Rebel Wilson sexy-feminine despite her size)
This is what you black woman are battling, it is what you are side stepping everyday and hoping not to be tripped into: the mascularization of your womanhood. Some folk are benefitting off it big time and so they are invested in keeping the idea going.
It seems the broader message being sold to and about black women is that we are on the male spectrum of womanhood and there is a desire to keep us in that place. Black women who challenge this positioning are often on the receving end of a push back in the form of disapproval and even indignation from those who question why she is trying to rearrange the order.
Now some may say, what have I got against the 'butch black girl'. Nothing. It just seems very strange and convenient that the only black girl gets to play that role while there are a dozen white girls from whom one masculine appearing white girl would not go amiss!
