    It will be interesting to hear your take on this.

    A new web series on Vimeo has been launched this month called “The New Stereotype: The Reclaim” which aims to change the perception of black men in the media.

    Conceived by Harlem based Marquelle Turner-Gilchrist, who is an assistant buyer for a luxury fashion company, he says that he came up with the idea for the series to “show the diversity and strength of black males”.

    FWIW : i worked in that building above grand central for some years.
    i dressed nicely. i took lunch in those restaurants. i had an early cell phone.
    you might say i was the prototype for their stereotype.

    As a degreed professional that look was required. So, we have been destroying the media stereotype for decades

    I think we all can agree pulling up the pants would
    Be a good start.

    I love these styles. Are you a "hat guy"? Do you own a lot of hats?

    I especially like the Newsboy Hat, Kangol....

    I guess the guy is just promoting his line of fashion. Because, we know that no matter how AAs dress, they will still be profiled. I remember when Johnny Cochran had a run-in with LAPD...

    Yes, on average, I'd say AA men out-dress everyone else.
