In case you haven't heard, there is a new film called, What Black Men Think. The film attempts to debunk many of the stereotypes and myths about Black men. I definitely want to see it because I don't even know what I think as a Black man half time. But seriously, has anyone seen this yet? I've read some reviews. I just hope it is beyond the normal political propaganda from the left or the right.

The Washington Post has a writeup here.

Excerpt:
In 2005, according to the Census Bureau, there were 864,000 black men in college. According to Justice Department statistics, there were 802,000 in federal and state prisons and jails, "even with the old heads holding on," Morton says.

Between the ages of 18 and 24, however, black men in college outnumber those incarcerated by 4 to 1.

Still, the idea that the reverse is true stems from an image that has been perpetuated, Morton says, by the government, the media and the black leadership, whoever they are.

So you ask him to ask the white men sitting behind him at the restaurant.

"I'm not worried about them," he says. "My point is I'm worried about us and what we think about ourselves."
