I think this should give you a good start, if you are seeking the truth of how black men are being maligned, misrepresented, and demonized, however if you look at some of the data to extract information that ratifies your current beliefs that black men are basically “not worth it” or “no damn good”, I can not debate, discuss or enlighten you. You have the bought the half-truths and used them to enclose you in a belief set that is representative of a minority of black men, but has too often been portrayed as the majority.
