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.
