I’ve had time to really process my issue with African American’s being ignorant on tv, radio and in the media.
We get to see other cultures in their entirety. We know that there’s a different between trailer trash and a working, upstanding white citizen. We see variety within the race. But I don’t know if other cultures can identify the “variety” within the African American race.
People like Travyon Martin, Sean Bell, Ernst Hoskins, and many others have died because some person didn’t know the difference.
Unfortunately the continuous stereotypes and negative images of blacks in the media, and our community perpetuating ignorance only makes matters worse.
