Quoted: Yes, Black Women Have a Right to Be Angry | Racialicious – the intersection of race and pop culture.

Many Black women I know, including myself, have to have the mental strength to hold on to our beliefs about who we are regardless of the people and media images that try to tell us who we are. This is usually a daily battle. Regardless of our location, profession, speech, behavior, etc., many people (including other Blacks) are going to interact with us based on what they have come to believe about us from the media.
