My friend Atiba turned me on to this clip from the DVD What Black Men Think that sets the record straight on the stereotypes generated by erroneous statistics about them.
The video talks about misconceptions about black men and AIDS transmission to women and stats about black men in prison vs. college. This is a must see.
I am getting so present to we think we know things but we never check our sources. I've be learning more about the world from YouTube videos like this that beg me to question what I think I know about black people, black women, black men and the world.
