    Black Males have many Images

    It is obvious when reading Hutchinson that he wants us to see that the negative, tabloid-like images given to black males in America has become the sole point of reference for this select group. Numerous 'pop-social analysts' have described the black male as a dangerous species. Many Blacks have also bought into these negative stereotypes and this in my mind, signals that the oppression is complete. You see the oppressors have so effectively defined the oppressed that even the oppressed are held captive by those definitions. To illustrate this the author launches a stinging attack on Black females who decry Black males, and on Black males who describe themselves using the 'N' word. Hutchinson does a great and careful job to educate us about the ways and means employed by racists social architects and the misguided media to assasinate the Black Male Image. His detox for those addicted to Black male image assasination includes a steady diet of learning of and highlighting Black male achievements. The vast majority of Black Males are positive and successful individuals. Black America generates billions of dollars annually and continues to be on the cutting edge of scientific discoveries, medical research and procedures, inventions, sports and entertainment. Black Males have many images but the negative ones, though they are the images of a minority of Black males, are the ones the media chooses to highlight because lies sell easier than the truth.
