Given the time lapse between Hattie Daniels and Halle Berry, you can understand the skepticism about Hollywood. You are looking at the progress that happened over decades. Others look at deficits that exist today. Bo Derek wore braids that black women wore for decades. Derek’s hair was considered a creative achievement. Black women were told to change their hair. My point is that attacks on Hollywood stereotypes and cultural appropriation occur in a society where blacks and other minorities were second class citizens. Communities that have been stereotyped are going to be suspicious when they see things they associate and have been criticized for praised by society when white sport the same gear. Another issue is the idea of dressing black without having to face the other things that come with being black. Getting arrested at Starbucks, shot in the back in your grandmother’s back yard, police called for playing too slow on a golf course, etc. things that do not happen to the appropriators. This reality underlies the complaints. Rachel Dolezal can simply go back to being white.
