[WIP Post] What Fandom Racism Looks Like – Misogynoir (Snippet 2) | Zina on Patreon

The consistently negative treatment of Black female characters in fandom is related to the treatment of real live Black women. It may not lead to sexual assault or deaths of real live Black women, but it does lead to folks uncritically creating or sharing content where these “uppity” Black female characters are “put in their place” by or for white characters.

Another snippet from my piece on fandom misogynoir that focuses on the way Black female characters are described with negative adjectives that tie into fandom’s major misogynoir problem.

I’m taking some time off from this piece after I wrote another 1000 words but I wanted to give y’all another peek at it before I moved on for a few weeks.
