Anonymous - Is there a statistical basis for the stereotype of young, black males being more prone to crime?
Muhammad Rasheed - Stereotypes were just made up out of thin air by white people with anti-Black racial biases. Usually they were invented just to make fun of us and are relatively harmless, like the stupid fried chicken and watermelon ones.
But sometimes — like the “inherent criminal” one — they were made up so that the white racist aristocracy could maintain their race-based wealth & power monopoly. This was proven by the scholarship that support’s Ava DuVernay’s 13th documentary, and they are dangerous because powerful white racists use the influence of such stereotypes to create policy and pass devastating anti-Black bills into law, adding to the country’s enduring sin of anti-Black systemic racism.
MEDIUM: Scanned pen & ink cartoon drawing w/Adobe Photoshop color.
