their trying to make us the face of everything that society at large sees as contradictory and unacceptable.

we must find away to fight this.

we are not the face of:

aids
abortion
welfare
HIV
homosexuality
venereal disease
violence
OOW births
and etc..

Afro-Americans are going to have to confront the importance of IMAGE in a ruthless way if they want to regain any type of respect in the world.
