I see where they're coming from. In a few books I've read, the master would threaten his preferred female slave by threatening to send her out in the fields. I'm assuming many these certain female slaves were kept inside for sexual purposes, right? I also read that mixed slaves were more likely to be subject to sexual abuse than dark slaves were.

In short I really don't think she would have been out in the fields unless she pissed him off.

And often the light skinned slaves were sent out to the fields (or elsewhere) because the wives of the masters didn't want to see their husband's philandering handiwork in their face every day.

Even in Queen, the wife was pissed that her husband made Queen their daughter's companion. Can't say that I blame her...I wouldn't want to be forced to be in close proximity with my husband's illegitimate children.

Agreed, I'm more concerned with Mariah's acting chops than her "believability" as a field hand.

I saw Glitter...Ouch

LOL

but seriously mariah can barely play a woman with a singing career aka glitter, something she should be used to. so i don't know why she was even considered for a slave role.

Well she wouldn't have been too light for very long. They ain't have SPF back then.

What kind of black should she have looked like? Are you saying mulattoes (who were pretty much white with a little black on them, not like those considered biracial today) never worked in the field?

LMAO. I would say she is not an obvious choice to play a field slave though...maybe her complexion will play some part in the story line.
