now isn't that interesting? i always heard the sapphire "lady marmalade" stereotype that implies that black women are ho's and can't get enough. you know, she's gotta have it. i think that had to do with all the fuss about halley berry's part in "monster's ball". alot of black folks felt that it just reinforced the stereotypes about black women being insatiable ho's.
Actually, the sapphire stereotype is a woman who's selfish, shallow and inconsiderate toward a person's feelings.
Sapphires aren't thought of as ho's. Hell, they're not even considered as sexy. They're attitudes are too abrasive. Temptresses are thought of as ho's.
The closest TV character I've seen that was a sapphire were Pam and Sheneneh on "Martin."
