If the black figure had been dark brown, she would at least have a little more justification. But it was completely jet black. When was the last time you saw that color used to represent black people, just as you rarely see snow white used to represent white people. It’s usually tan.
The word “black” us often used to describe black people, but not the color black.
Which is hilarious, because even among blacks, the darkness issue is a sharp line of bigotry - the darker, the more you are looked down upon by the "high-color" blacks. Seriously.
