HOW CAN BLACK MEN COMPLAIN ABOUT MEDIA REPRESENTATION?

    Black men have some of the BEST media representation in America. You literally cannot walk down a street in NYC without seeing some shirtless black muscle stud plastered across a billboard. In clothing stores black people are always featured as models. The film, music and sporting industries are full of black people and our president is black.

    ASIAN and INDIAN men(who are ironically the two highest earning minority groups in the states, on par with white men) can complain about poor representation and bad stereotypes but not black guys.

    bangingwithmrcooper saidof course you wouldn't understand. YOU AIN'T BLACK! but you know what ignorance has no color because there's plenty of black people out there that are just as ignorant as yourself concerning that. this is why the american education system is considered a joke in the world. you are simply uneducated and that explains WHY you simply DON'T understand the science behind the damn representations of black people out there in the media. if YOU did, you would realize how cringeworthy a majority of them are such as this commercial among other things.



    this is an australian commercial though. please at least educate yourself a bit on the subject before you talk. i hate when folks who don't even know a lick of american history try to talk about shit they don't know. closed thread.



    Exactly, that is an AUSTRALIAN commercial and not even particularly racist.

    The truth is blacks don't suffer from the bad stereotypes that for example, Asian men deal with in the statees and if someone doesn't find black men attractive, 99% of the time it's because they do not find black people attractive. They have been exposed to enough attractive black people in film, television etctera to form this opinion. Poor media representation has nothing to do with it.

    once again, DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT AMERICAN HISTORY? if you did, you wouldn't have made this thread. you are clearly uneducated.

    the reason why i posted the australian commercial is to show you a point of how the media representation of black people extends beyond the perimeters of the united states. i can pull commercials from india which are blatantly racist towards black people where the n-word is used.



    Obviously blacks were enslaved in the past but this is clearly not the case anymore with them being all over the media and the PRESIDENT being black. By the way, blacks have been enslaved all throughout history, right back to the days of BC Rome. Not just in America.

    Black people loving fried chicken is NOT a negative stereotype and that commercial is not even racist. Indian people smelling like curry IS.

    Link me to some racist Indian commercials. That will be interesting.

    Please just explain to me how that commercial is 1) racist to black people, 2) spreading negative stereotypes about black people in Australia and 3) linked to African American history

    and I'd like to see the Indian commercials too

    EDIT - and please stop editing your posts after I reply to them.

    Media representation doesn't translate to real life. Black men, as well as Asian men, are discriminated against all the time.

    It's becoming more obvious that the OP is neither 30 years old, nor does he live in the US.

    Black men are certainly not discriminated against when it comes to dating straight women. Asian men, for the large part, are.

    Plus I don't know why black men are complaining. When it comes down to the basics, the race that is marginalized the most in the gay community is Asian by a large distance.

    for your sake, i'm NOT doing it. it has to be something that YOU want to learn and what i'm gathering is you're ignorant and want to stay that way. that's NOT my problem though. it's yours. it's all out there if you want to look it up on your own time. don't ask me to take time out my life to do something that is YOUR responsibility. i feel that this thread is quite offensive and insensitive for that matter.




    Please just go ahead and tell me. I will listen.

    I have never seen a shirtless Asian man on a billboard.

    WAIT A SECOND

    If media representation doesn't translate to real life? Then why do Asian guys keep complaining about their absence in gay porn?

    You're saying that blacks are portrayed positively in the media. Therefore, life is great for blacks in real life. And I'm saying that's not true.

    If you can't even follow your own thread, it's pointless continuing with this discussion.

    No. I'm saying that black men shouldn't complain about media representation because they are portrayed positively in the media. ESPECIALLY when compared to Asian men.

    If you can't read, then don't post in my threads.

    Which black men are complaining? Did you get this from an article? Or are you just making things up? Post links to back up your claims.

    Maybe the black men who are constantly complaining on RJ about media representation?

    Just check out any thread about sexual racism on here, you will find them. Can't be bothered linking.
