Modern Black Male Affection
I discovered this photo on Facebook. Apparently, some woman took this photo to share with her friends and cause a stir of hatred. I find the photo to be a positive representation of two young men who know how to love or at least not afraid to show affection publicly. The problem that exists in American culture especially is that the world has set Black men up to fight each other. We see this is varies outlets boxing, football, prisons. The images that we are used to seeing with two black men are generally those where there is some form of competition. The woman who took the picture probably didn't expect this photo to get this much shine, but it goes to show you what technology can do.
What do you think about the photo?
