I think it's fair to balance out negative stereotypes over-emphasized in the news and film with idealized blacks.

Unless the media is going to collectively stop the emphasis of negative black stereotypes...and that's not going to happen.

Personally I think this is a case of book editors and writers being too overly sensitive. Unless your specifically writing a story about a character from particularly different background that requires either first hand experience or extensive research to provide insight and nuance then I don't see the issue.

If people from different genders, races, sexual preferences are segregated into only writing people from the same background as them then we won't get as much diversity as we would like in our media. As long as you aren't writing caricatures or stereotypes I don't think most normal people would be offended.
This is the result of the idiocy of mass complaining on social media. They really need to stop listening to dumb asses that get offended at everything because their logic almost never works. This is why we end up with people like Hudlin and Coates writing bad Black Panther runs. This idea that only black writers know how to properly write black characters is straight outta Shea Butterville.

I saw this London news report today about black women's hair.


It is disheartening to see just how unaccepting some non-black people seem to be about black people's natural hair and the effect that is having on young black girls and black women.

For all the racial progress we have made it black people's hair still seems to be such a major issue for non-black people for some reason.

What do you guys think?

As an Asian person, I'm just glad this isn't a mirror universe where I have to get constant perms in order to get a professional job.

The constant perms are just a personal thing, we know.

Does it not help that Tanyaradswa Nyenwa's hair is obviously straightened?

The worst thing about me being a perfectionist is that everything has to match. Everything.

Imagine if whites had to make their hair appear like black hair to get employment or education.

But that would never happen because whites aren't treated like second class school children.

The whole "conform to our standard of beauty because your own races appreance is disagreeable to us" is messed. I shocked more women aren't suing for discrimination. Some woman was in the news a couple years ago just for suing a company that forced her to wear high heels on a temp receptionist job so "I won't hire you unless you have non-black hair" is probably law suit worth.

There was nothing wrong with that woman's hair that should disqualify her from working in a high end store.

Yo, black wall street was crazy. I never even heard of that event until like a year ago. Maybe I'm an idiot, but was never taught about it in school or friends or through the media. It should be.

I found out about it just a few years ago myself. I don't think it is something that is widely known. It's definitely not something that is taught in school...if school is anything like it was when I was a kid. A paragraph about slavery and paragraph about MLK, pretty much summed up black American history. Maybe throw in a few sentences about George Washington Carver.

That's because it goes against the narrative that blacks are responsible for their own destruction throughout history.

Dear Brotha,

Do you have a dash cam? If not, seriously consider it.
