In the application of the term representation in this scenario reflects on the establishment of positions in media studies in which objects of analysis are not selective to some instances of reality, but reflect more on issues regarding racism. These are signifying objects articulated within fields that signify related objects such as language, institutions, critical discourses as well as material artifacts. In this regard, the task of this paper includes the tracing of historical emergences of various signifying practices in the context of film-makers around the world.

Cinematic displays of black sexuality are on the verge of becoming political and the center in regard of articulating dominant groups' anxieties, desires, and ideologies. [...]


[...] As it is in other cinematic black actors in white films, Berry represents the African American world and she is ultimately removed from this world. All the connections she has linking her to the blackness are entirely stripped off her leaving her only hope in a white male savior. In comparison to other roles of black women in the past, her role embarks on being as that of a pathologically dependent and dysfunctional woman sexually excessive in very many ways.
