I'm not here to present facts but I don't know what a black man personally go through. I'm writing this post because everybody has talked about Kanye West getting in his feelings but there were other facts presented about this month being the month his mom passed. On the other hand there was also an old video with Dave Chapelle asking what's going on in Hollywood to black men. Really what's going on to black men in media and in general?
I can only imagine what a black man had to go through just because of the skin he is in. Black men are looked as scary, killers, robbers and all of the above under such negative notions. Black men are a threat and for the simplest things they get taken down and taken away from their families. What's bad is that the system we live under refuses to look at the black man under the same notion as a white man.
Black men do take care of their families and their children too. They are also very supportive. Sometimes with the media, it gets turned around because of what is being done to the black man. The media always shows men dressing in female clothing, men are now becoming the females and it's becoming prevalent that majority of black men can't deal with a black woman. We don't know what's going on behind closed doors when it comes to black men but it's tearing them down.
From music to comedy, black men are becoming entertainment and used as just a token to white men and white women to brag about. If you believe other wise, when you have you ever seen a black praised for the right thing for his own people? The black is getting praised for being a coon or doing something to get the white man ahead. The black man knows what he's doing but if he doesn't want to do it, imagine how bad that eats him up knowing he isn't treated like his worth. Imagine him being surrounded by attention and fake people who want the worst for him. There's people like Kanye and then there's people like J. Cole. Think about it.
