People usually have 5 Ds for black men “ dumb, deprived, dangerous, deviant and disturbed” (Joyce Web). People usually do not feel any sorrow towards them. They are often seen as the ones who left their family or their family left them. Black males have been neglected and looked down with prejudice by criminal, educational, educational and economical system. The author tells in the article that it is important to rethink our ideas about black males because often these suspicion towards them leads to those negative experiences in their lives. People need reconsider their attitude towards black male representatives and it will only improve their lives.
