I’m not sure it’s a black thing…it might just be an American thing.
Justin Caynon

it’s a society issue in general but Black men have been greatly affected by these issues in more extreme ways due to systematic oppression, laws,messages, and media ideas of inferiority. But this is a typical experience regarding the oppressed: usually members of communities that have been under educated, widely discriminated against, and kept from prospering economically, will become a more exaggerated reflection of societies problems. The luxury of moderation becomes null and void, though necessary, it’s often too expensive for those living under these conditions.
