PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT --> About Black Men
I understand the message relayed, but I wonder how and where did they pull their research from. Is that a prelude to another flick? It's good to see BM combating stereotypes, and speaking up for themselves.
Media is power. If we could figure out how to get our people mass access to our own secured internet we could begin the process of combating the onslaught we're facing.
Kudos to these brothers and thank you ShemsiEnTehuti for posting this!
Is this a candidate for the front page video today?
It appears that this video is MINIMIZING the impact that white supremacy has had on Black men. I mean, if these men are saying that all of these negative stats about Black men are inflated or false, then Black folks don't really have the problem that some of us think we have. I have many Black males in my family, so this is wonderful news.
But just to take one thing they talked about: If we have been lied to about the scarcity of Black men on college campuses, then where are these men hiding on those campuses? I know Black women who attend and work at HBCU's and some who work at and attend other colleges and universities, and they confirm that Black men are in low numbers on college campuses. There are even Black men claiming that Black men are scarce on college campuses. Why would all of these Black people be lying?
If this high number of Black men are not in prison, then where are they?
Seeing is believing...so LEAD BY EXAMPLE.
Black men need to get out and be seen.
There are more black women then black men in this country. so naturally there are more women in college. there are also more white women in school then white men. again over all there are more women then men in the world period. dont believe the hype. I live near norfolk state and hampton university. i see black men all over the place when I drive by.
The control system,,ie whites do not want Blacks educated,with fiscal knowledge,monetary sense,or moral responsibility.
Who knows how freaking truthful the media is,because it's controled by a different colored race.
We do the best,that we can individually,and hopefully we can help each other as a race collectively.
"i see black men all over the place when I drive by."
Like I keep saying, SOME folks just aint really LOOKING for or at BLACK MEN in the first place.
Thank you brother. I enjoyed that very much. Great information.
I will see the video momentarily, but since I seen something on Black Men in colleges, as an UNDERGRADUATE [YOUNG] BLACK MAN attending an HBCU, my voice is as loud as most who both posted, and will be posting on this thread.
Our HBC/U has more Sistahs than Brothas. How so? Read Brotha Therious' post again. The problems that I have supercede what I am understanding the video to be about, so I will not get into it.
What I will say for now (until I see the video) is this-
Black Men need to collectively WAKE UP the same way how they collectively go to the clubs, go to the Fraternity/Sorority step-shows and dances, and realize what they are being subjected to. You can not find this out watching BET, MTV, and/or VH1 all day. Work needs to be performed.
Kwa heri (Goodbye in Swahili) until I see the video.
