West sees it as "passion and righteous indignation Defined by Pilgrim , "it is a social control mechanism that is employed to punish black women who violate the societal norms that encourage them to be passive, servile, nonthreatening, and unseen" p. From the s through the mids, black women in media were portrayed as "Sassy Mammies" who aggressively ran their own homes and defied societal norms. During the era of the Jim Crow laws, when it was a crime for blacks to argue with white people, black women were given leeway in acting sassily, which was not only supposed to represent their acceptance into White families as "mammies", but also a way to overlook that the cultural generalization of Black women is a corollary and overly oppressive factor of slavery and segregation. The mammy stereotype portrays Black women as not only offering help to the White families but it also showcases black women with anger and masculinity.
