While many in the United States are focused on the protests surrounding Vh1's recently canceled reality show Sorority Sisters, protests are happening elsewhere over similar issues -- derogatory representations of black women.
On and offline protests are taking place in Brazil over the television show 'Sexo e as Negas,' which translates to Sex and the Niggas. The show is supposed to be an adaptation of the U.S. hit television series Sex and the City (HBO) but is being criticized by black women in Brazil for the title and the hyper sexualized representation of black women in the series. The series creator Miguel Falabella, who is white, apparently has blown off the blow back from black female audiences. | Nsenga Burton
