The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.

|Gay Black Man:||I know, right!|
|Conscious Black Man:||Ew, you faggot. You're disgusting, you are not natural, them white people emasculated you!|
