Stereotyping Black Men


If you were walking down the street and on one side you see two black guys then on the other side of the street you see two white guys walking, which two would you rather cross paths with?  I am going to tell you depending on where we are, the answer is easy.  If I am walking with my girlfriend the answer is even easier.

I can write about how wrong it is to stereotype but why?  Every time you look at the news and see all the black male violence, you are going to stereotype.  I want to be safe and I want my family to be safe as much as possible.  I refuse to walk in a neighborhood or on a certain street and not make eye contact with people because they might get offended or want to start trouble.  Stop claiming a block or a corner that you do not own.  You wonder why the police are harassing you.  You need to stop killing and harassing each other.  How can you be upset about every time a white man kills a black man when you kill each other every day all day?   Start respecting yourself and your brothers around you.

It is time to pull your pants up and cut your hair.  Be a man.  Take care of your responsibilities.  If you are going to have hair make sure that you take care of it.  If you are not a thug then stop looking like one.  In fact stop trying to live like the guys you seen on TV, they are not real.  Technology is too advanced for you to get away with anything.  I know I usually do not rant but man.  We live in a judgmental society people are going to look at you because of the way you dress or talk and decide that this guy is a liability to my company I will not hire him.  There is nothing wrong with having manners.  I promise it will not take away your manhood.

If you are tired of being stereotyped sometimes you need to stop looking at everyone around you and look at yourself.  You could be part of the problem.  It is time to stop feeling sorry for yourself and make changes in your life.  Start by wearing clothes that fit and getting a haircut and watch the difference.
