The second installment of the Self Hatred section focuses on stereotypes of Black people and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Are Black people accurately stereotyped?
2. Which stereotype about Black people is least accurate to you and why?
3. Which stereotype is the most offensive towards Black people to you and why?
Every race suffers their own version of negative stereotypes, but none are quite as negative as those aimed towards Black people. If you were to stop for a second and try to think of the all the negative stereotypes that are attached to Black people, you would be surprised at how many you could come up with. The issue becomes even more depressing when you are forced to look in the mirror and determine how true these stereotypes are and how you are complicit in perpetuating it through your actions. Are we just as guilty as the people who created the stereotypes or is it all in our heads and the heads of others? Do stereotypes contribute to the destruction of the Black Community?
