When a reporter from The New York Times labeled Shonda Rhimes as an "angry Black woman" who showcases "a powerful, intimidating Black woman” on television, Rhimes didn't advocate for the article to be removed.

"In this world in which we all feel we're so full of gender equality and we're a postracial [society] and Obama is president, it's a very good reminder to see the casual racial bias and odd misogyny from a woman written in a paper that we all think of as being so liberal," she said.
