"Bury The Ratchet". That's the name of a campaign at Spelman College that challenges the images of showed in reality TV shows about women of color from Atlanta. The project is helmed by image activist Michaela Angela Davis.

Actually this problem goes way further than Atlanta, and hopefully more people around the world will continue to speak up. - L.
