EMASCULATION OF THE BLACK MALE

Emasculation of the Black Male

In the article, “Systemic Emasculation: A History of American Institutional Affects on Black Male Dysfunction 1700 -1950”, they writer quotes a famous quote by Carter G. Woodson from his seminal work, The Miseducation of the Negro. The quote is as follows:

The physical mistreatment and subjugation of the Negro people during slavery and a different but equally malicious form of institutional racism in the decades since their emancipation have systemically distorted the psychology of black males and the people in general. Such that, as stated by Carter G. Woodson in The MisEducation of the Negro, “When you control a man’s thinking you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder. He will find his ‘proper place’ and will stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit. – Todd Walker, Systemic Emasculation: A History of American Institutional Affects on Black Male Dysfunction 1700 -1950

So as a study, I decided to create a YouTube video that discusses the emasculation of the black American male. Here is the video below:
