Why Does Gabrielle Union Not Get the Credit She Deserves?

She is not just that "black actress in all those great movies."

Beautiful, witty, and in more rom-coms than you can keep track of—this is not another article about Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock or Rachel McAdams. Instead, we need to talk about why the hell Gabrielle Union doesn’t get the credit she deserves in Hollywood…and, while we’re at it, why black actresses in general fail to gain the level of name recognition and rom-com success as white actresses. Hint: It doesn’t have much to do with talent.

Gabrielle bursted onto the scene in the late 1990s with a variety of TV guest spots and a small role in Love & Basketball (2000) before her first major role as the lovable antagonist Isis in Bring It On (2000).
