Re: “The root of the cause

Shamefully after I said I would watch another slave narrative film I accidentally watched it, and I regretted it immediately. The quickly blamed the network for that trash, I blamed some A list and B list actors for not acting like they just came out of Africa, I blame the directors and cinematographer the most. I couldn't get jiggy with the camera angels and the story. It was just a trash film and I hated it they really should have asked me to direct it.

Re: “The Empire strikes

I really loved this and didn't see the show this way. I do agree that the show challenges many social issues within in the black community. But the problem I have with the show is why does black people in shows always have to be rich? Why couldn't they live in the suburbs and have normal people jobs? Not everyone wants to be in the entertainment industry. But as I digress this is a well written and directed show but their status is what bothers me. Very well written Mr. Easley.

Re: “Ferguson Daze

Loved the article Mr. Easley, people have voiced out all over the world. The thing that surprises me that most are people my age are out there protesting, I have even been out there protesting out here in Atlanta. It saddens me to this day that us blacks or formerly known as "African Americans" are still getting murdered by the hands of the white man, understanding that black on black crime is an epidemic some most know that white on white and white on black crime happens just as much or more. To not understand our pain is like not to understand history, for example: blacks were slaved, experimented on, breeded like animals and also murdered for going on something like 400 years from now, and not only that slavery ended only 150 years ago and you know when the civil rights act was signed? In 1964. The year is now 2014 and for some reason we still are getting killed by whites, and its more than just that. We need jobs in our community(how are we a minority and we still have more unemployed than the whites and asians?) Better schools and teachers, and out of all of what I just mentioned we just want to be equal and not judged because we are black.

Re: “VIDEO: Michael Brown: A pattern of violence

I loved the Article and the visual to go with the blog and the topic. But yes it does seem like Michael Brown is a sacrificial lamb because it now seems that a lot more people of all races creeds and colors are coming together of a unjust killing of a young black male. There is another topic, and that is the militarization of the local police departments and how we are in fear of the police more than we are in fear of terrorist. The only way to stop these two things from happening again is for all people to come together and talk about their flaws and how to fix them and for the police is for congress or whoever to change laws from them to stop attacking their own citizens.

Re: “The demise of HBCUs

Before I went to the Art Institute I attended Shaw University in Raleigh North Carolina. Being that I didn't stay at Shaw I often found myself being around like minded others that was of the same race, they looked like me, talked like me, and strived for the same things, even the world history classes were of different conversations that I didn't get at the Art Institute. Sometimes I other African Americans tell me that they did not want to attend an HBCU for the fact that they were going to be surrounded by a lot of other African Americans and that truly hurt. I absolutely am for equality across the board but I would like more of young African Americans to attend HBCU's so they can connect with like minded others.

Re: “I'm not Jova

I loved reading this, being that I am a young African American male and actually almost go through this every time I'm newly employed or I hang with a couple of new friends from the white race. I can go on the limb and say that all people of the human race don't exactly look alike unless they are twins, but what I have a problem with is the killing of innocent kids primarily innocent african american kids because some people say that we all look the same and act the same when we really don't. Whenever a crime happens and the dispatcher says "Black male with dreads" then we all look like the suspect even if we don't; I think that all people should take the time out to learn names of everybody they came across no matter their creed or color.

Re: “Jonathan Ferrell, me and the Geico pig

As i've been enlightening and self educating myself I have came across a study of the late great W.E.B. Du Bois, "double consciousness." As I was reading this yesterday morning I thought to myself what if he did act different and was composed and in the right state of mind would the outcome of this tragic accident be? Well I came up with this and not to sound bias towards any race(because I believe and practice in the equality of all people)but regardless of how brother Ferrell acted he was profiled because of his skin color and he didn't act "White". It is sad that we have been institutionalized and oppressed into thinking that whatever we do we have to act and look like "The White Man" to be accepted and not to be seen as a danger when we mean no harm. I'm glad that you wrote this column to bring awareness to "Racial Profiling" in our own back yard(even though we live in the southern baptist bible belt). Great Column Mr. Easley!
