Black History Month is usually a time to celebrate some of the most important figures in African-American Culture. Many Facebook and Twitter statuses have been dedicated to the life and work of some of the most important figures in History. The sad part of Black History Month is not that it celebrates African-American leaders, but that is also warns the opinions of some of the worlds "not-so-friendly" citizens; who could care less about African-Americans and their contributions to such a complex country.
Recently, the NAACP honored the Real Housewives of Atlanta for an Image Award. While most African-Americans enjoy the guilty pleasure of the rants and ravings of the African-Americans women depicted on the show, many do not believe they deserved an award for the obvious stereotypes displayed. Why should African-American women fighting and degrading themselves be deserving of such a historical honor? Hmmm...many are still trying to wrap their heads around it. Well, According to Colorlines, "The women from Elite Delta Force 3, a Los Angeles based all-black-female sketch comedy group, got together to give their own spin to Bravo’s hit “Real Housewives” series." In the parody-comedy sketch, The Elite Delta Force 3 feature Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Betty Shabazz, Marilyn Monroe, Maya Angelou and Winnie Mandela.
