Orange is The New Black's Poussey and The Erasure of The Black TCK

One of the greatest and most insidious crimes of white supremacy is the consistent portrayal of people of color as one-dimensional beings with a single story. Whether the narrative is one of "positive discrimination" as in the case of the "Nerdy Asian kid" or the "Magical Negro",  or blatantly "negative discrimination" as in the case of the "Angry Black Woman" archetype, it serves to take away from the humanity of the person of color by painting all members of a group with one mediocre brush.
