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?

Don't forget Halle Berry's "Catwoman".

Tina Turner. Mad Max.

Grace Jones and Halle Berry. James Bond.

Few and far between, yes.

There have been a few, but i think hollywood is scared of black woman which is why for most of them to survive in hollywood and live a descent life they have to have a white boy on there arm.
