Ok this is funny, especially for Star Trek and Blaxploitation film fans. But nobody had better even think about doing this to Michelle Obama’s appearance on the View today. Or any other appearance either. Y’all have been warned.

Dialogue taken from the movie “Truck Turner” and image from Star Trek: The “Animated” Adventures. In Truck Turner, Nichelle Nichols played a female pimp called Dorinda which shows how important and groundbreaking her non-hooker role as a well-educated, professional senior communications officer as Uhura on Star Trek really was. Roles like that weren’t plentiful at the time for black women unfortunately. h/t Laughing Squid.

Here’s a tribute to Nichelle Nichols and her pioneering role as Uhura and as an elegant representation of African-American women.
