We definitely can’t play that game..one of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong, can we?
Why oh why are black men still allowing themselves to be photographed and portrayed like this?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again the fact that they are wealthy, black guys out there, like Lebron James who would allow themselves to be depicted like this without any remorse is sad and disgusting.
And this is another reason why I’m rooting for Obama. Because I’m sick and tired of the portrayal of blacks in the media.
And when I say media I’m including black media in there as well (and if you have any doubts about how we portray ourselves check out BET one of these afternoons)..we’re either over-sexualized nymphomaniacs, dumb baboons or violent, unemployed welfare recipients and if Barack becomes president the image of black men in the media will slowly start to change and at least start to become more reflective of the black men and women I know and see everyday and dare I say the black people most of us interact with instead of these caricatures of a people we’ve become so used to seeing in the media.
And for those of you who will claim that you can’t see any similiarities among the posters…I’m sorry to say this but you’re clearly blind..
