WHY “JESSICA PEARSON” IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CHARECTERS IN POP CULTURE RIGHT NOW
The character “Jessica Pearson” played by Gina Torres on the hit show “Suits” is literally one of the most powerful characters on television and pop culture right now. She is changing paradigms on a global scale and even if that wasn’t the intention of the shows creators it is having a rippling effect across the globe.
If by now you haven’t watched a single episode of Suits in your life then I honestly don’t know what the fxck you are doing with your life (this is the most LIT LAWYER show EVER!!!). Jessica Pearson is the managing partner (BOSS OF ALL BOSSES) of the biggest law firm in New York City and she cuts Billion Dollar checks for breakfast. She is a fierce dragon that rules her Kingdom with an iron fist and is honestly one the sharpest minds in the profession of law (She definitely TOP 5). The fact that she is a “BLACK WOMAN” and is one of the most powerful Lawyers in the World running the biggest Law firm in New York City is exactly where the paradigm begins to be shifted. Her role has now transcended reading scripts and acting them out; she has become a symbol for “BLACK EXECLENCE” and that right there is her true power.
She is a symbol for the highest level of “Corporate Success” and this is an image that is doing a lot for the breaking down of racial stereotypes all over the planet. Think about it, every week millions of people around the world get to watch Jessica literally dominate and embody “BLACK EXECLENCE”. This image is now being pushed into the mainstream consciousness week after week, season after season and this is how the paradigm is shifted, through repletion. Now Black Women all over the world have a visual representation of what it takes to climb up the corporate ladder and become the best version of your self. .
