New Book! Published in the 60’s, this book, #BlackBourgeoise caused all the rage amongst working class and upper middle class blacks. I’m excited to read it and compare the politics of classism and socioeconomics in Black culture against what’s happening in our world today!

#IfTheyGunnedMeDown which picture would they (the media) use? 

Far too often in this country black men are painted as dangerous, violent thugs. 

When our innocent black men & boys are beaten, arrested or killed for being black, they use pics to support only negative stereotypes about us. 

Often I’ve walked out of my place to run to the store with a fitted, shorts saggin etc, and people/neighbors look & treat me differently..often negatively…as if I’m a criminal. 

Rest in peace, Mike Brown.
