Great read man. I wouldn’t go as far as to make the recommendation to stop posting successful pictures of black men; instead I think we need to do a better job of highlighting the fact that our clothing and pictures neither define nor validate our existence. At the end of the day, there is a constant counter identity being placed on Black men (supremacists pedagogy tells us) as unsuccessful & unaccomplished. While a suite pic doesn’t and shouldn’t be the main weapon combating this narrative, it is still important to highlight the fact that it simply isn’t true…I may be nitpicking, but the gist of the article was clear and concise. Excellent piece.
