Forbes just released a list of the top earning women in Hollywood and again black actresses are nowhere to be found. The usual names made the cut with a sprinkle of some new faces: Kristen Stewart ($34.5 million), Cameron Diaz ($34 million), Sandra Bullock ($25 million), Angelina Jolie ($20 million), Charlize Theron ($18 million) and so on…

This is a topic that has been dissected to pieces and every time it’s resurrected the end result is always the same. But here is another spin on this; perhaps black actresses need to be involved in more mainstream roles in order to increase their earning potential.
