We got lara (sp) croft.
Riggly from the aliens.
Utra violet.
Chick in kill bill.
La fem (sp) Nikita.
The agent chick in the avengers.
Wonderwoman.
She-ra. (cartoon)
Supergirl.
Ace fighter pilot, kick-butt chick in latest past t.v. series of battlestar galactica.
Women of 'crouching tiger'.

Even the 'crime-fighting' tough cop t.v. shows, no
black women.
All your anime action movies.

What's the deal with that?
Thoughts?

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
