a black woman, depicted as rotund, homely and matronly.

The mammy is an archetype, portraying a domestic servant of African descent who is generally good-natured, often overweight, and loud. The stereotypical mammy is portrayed as obsequiously servile or acting in, or protective of, the interests of whites

Although the word "mammy" is a variant of "mother" and was common in North America, it is now rarely used and typically considered an ethnic slur. In parts of the UK however, mammy is still widely used as a synonym for "mother" by young people, without any racial connotation.
Quaker Oats recently gave their "Aunt Jemima" pancake syrup bottle a makeover to remove the racially insensitive mammy image.

Mammy - term has evoled quite drastically from the early late 19th - early 20th century. When the term was used to describe a black woman in a dominant white household that took care of the children and housework to create better life for her own children.

However, the term in present time is used to describe an unfit, lazy, uncaring, wannabe grown, irresponsible or unruly mother.
