The 21st century look of Black Power.

The image is comical and sad. It is an easy joke waiting to be ceased by white humorists itching to draw attention between the contrast of what Black folks claim they want and how they act like. No longer the intellectual and aggressive threat to white people, or the system governing our lifestyle, books and analytical thought are replaced by intense concentration upon cell phones and the trivia pursuits of its worshippers. Black people come across as social buffoons, as black face comedians, throwbacks to Amos and Andy renditions of self and caricatures of who they really are! It is sad, laughable and how white folks maintain their sense of superiority over Colored folk because the resistance to them and 'it' is of no real force, or threat. It is just cute. - Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories 1/12/17

His words are mirrors. They reflect back to us how Blacks are perceived by whites more often than not. He is telling a story we want to dismiss, don't wanna hear, evaluate honestly or deal with objectively, if that is possible. . .
