Interesting article about how Black men have to appear non-threatening to be palatable to mainstream America.

Do you agree with the premise?

It's on point Ms. Mack, as usual. Them white folks are "sked" of black men who are on point. When I was growing up, I was always serious. It was white people who always wanted me to be "neutralized". I realized who they'd react around me, I felt like an Element, pure and simple. To fit in with a certain element, you have to find another like yourself to gain access or be equal, if not, then you'll be a compound.

Hope this helps......

BTW, black women who are on point are to be afraid of, too. I apologize for leaving them out, don't mean no harm.
