In the present essay, I examine Venus from the standpoint of Black feminism. I study the impact factor of intersectionality on black women and their lives and study how the perversion of black womanhood as well as scientific racism can help the white men hail institutionalized discrimination, displacement and sexploitation at them and scientifically promote themselves. In addition, I examine how the perversion of black body helps the white entertainers to gain profit and white spectators to achieve pleasure. To this end, I employ a range of associated theories to show how Venus lends itself to the concerned theories of Black feminism to utter the concerns of black women and at the same time create identity for them.
