Black Men and Public Space was written by Brent Staples who is a black men and a journalist. The general subject in the essay is want to talk about racial problem. In other words, local people are afraid of black people. Another view I will mention is not all blacks are bad guys. There are two occasions which I have deep impression.
This can turn dangerous as some many feel they are deserving of more, so they go and create their self-righteous version of terror. Because of this powerful businessman and their rent-seeking activities and the abusers of the BlueServo project possess similar motives. But when people are the ones being viewed or spectated, humans attempt to escape reality to focus on irrelevant things. The
He aims to shock the audience , to make them feel disgust for what the leadership in the black community is protecting. Then he calls to mind the beauty, and creativity that the culture of previous generations of African Americans, and defines this new culture as something which is wiping " a half 's tradition of beauty and grace from [their] identity." He defines "keepin ' it real" as the true destructive entity, not perceived racism. Steyn maintains through this definition that the leaders who defend this culture of self-destruction are the ones who are " keepin ' millions of young men and women unreal in ways the most malevolent bull-necked racist could never
In the stories The Tell-Tale Heart and The Black Cat, both narrators realize their acts were wrong, but they did them anyway by rationalizing that they were driven by circumstance. The Tell-Tale Heart is about a mad man who truly believes he is not crazy by telling us the whole story.

He ended up killing him so perfectly no one whould know, but the guilt ate him up and he amited he had done the deed to the police. Similarly, The Black Cat is about another insane man who drowns his sorrows with achocl and is so confident with himeself.
The strong insistence by these two writer that media just look on and examine people’s looks without considering their dignities, helps readers visualize how similarly Staples and Cofer view society. For both authors, a myth of the media stating that stereotypes are developing and persisting. In “Black Men and Public Space”, Ben Staples describes how he looks like when he is enough to frighten a young white women on the street late at night. He is a man with “six feet two inches height, and a beard and billowing hair”. Black men wearing a bulky jacket, to the public, are all fatal and threatening.
Huck Finn was written when unjust and unruly treatment of blacks was a commonplace in society and the use of such a word didn’t get so much as a second thought. Over the course of the novel, Huck’s attitude toward his black friend, Jim, begins to shift for the better. Huck is not portrayed as the brightest bulb, but as the story progresses the reader develops a definite sense of Huck’s struggle with how society has always forced him to think. Huck gets upset when he is forced to apologize to Jim and attempts to justify something he and society believes is morally right in saying, “do him no more mean tricks; and I wouldn’t done that one if I’d knowed it would make him feel that way” (Twain 107). And also, “It was fifteen minutes before I could work myself to go and humble myself to a nigger” (Twain 107).
In America, “there’s a whole culture that promotes this idea of aggressive young black men” (Kristof, 2). The budding generation of African Americans is led to believe what social media, television, and literature portrays them to be murderers, drug dealers, and gangsters, are what their inheritance in society is. To rid of this stereotype that black men are dangerous, social media, video games, and literature should stop illustrating Blacks as the antagonists. Seeing that the media has a strong influence as what Blacks are depicted as, they can change the whole country’s opinion about Blacks, and shift the population’s views of Blacks to a more positive perspective. By exposing in media that other races can be criminals, Blacks would not be in the limelight for being criminals.
Upon arriving home, Rolland immediately began to read the book. He did not stop until he got to the end. The book developed as an autobiographical diary, recounting almost on a day-to-day basis the author’s multiple experiences as a Negro, his personal encounters with the good, the bad, and the ugly. How he was, denied the basics necessities of life such as food, water, shelter, and toilet facilities.
Black Men and Public Space Brent Staples has had several experiences that have made him come to a conclusion that the black male body inspires fear in public spaces. In my opinion he is right to feel that way. Unfortunately, it is something that comes naturally to some people. This is due to the media exposure with black males, the lack of diversity in their upbringing and demographics.
On the whole, envy changes people in ways they never thought would exist. Even though all envious entities start off ordinary people they can be corrupted and taken hostage by this emotion. Envy is an ever growing vine that keeps getting bigger and stronger as it feeds on your terrible thoughts and actions. Envy changed men like Jack and Minh Nguyen as both of them took it to the extreme by committing terrible acts of violence. Jack tried to murder Ralph because he had power in the beginning of the story and Jack’s envy of Ralph had grown ever so greatly.
Black Men and Public Spacing Since the dawn of time, colored people have always been treated unfairly. In “Black Men and Public Spacing”, Staples discusses the ongoing problem of being considered a possible assailant due to his race and appearance. He gets into the horrendous facts that “black people” face and that, unfortunately, remains part of our world. As he starts his story he says, "My first victim was a woman—white, well dressed, probably in her early twenties.
“Black Men and Public Space” is a short story about racism. This story is interesting because it is told by the point of view of a black male and his life experiences. ‘Black Men in Public Space” shows how racisms is a never ending drain on society. Racism is defined by Merriam-Webster as, “a belief that race is the primary of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race”.

Have you ever been affected by race in your life? Prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior is an outcome of racism. Racism is a big conflict in today’s society and effect many lives. In the two stories “Champion of the Word” by Maya Angelou and “Black Men and Public Space” by Brent Staples , race was the big social view being discussed. Racist ideology can become manifest in many aspects of social life.
The social justice movement known as “Black Lives Matter” is justified and sound because it makes a valid and thought-provoking point about the murder of innocent african americans and the stereotypes that come with these homicides. ”Black Lives in Public Spaces”,written by Brent Staples, talks about how a black male can’t walk through the streets without being seen as a kidnapper walking into a store and immediately identified as a felon. The Black Lives Matter movement is justified because it has become to common to see on the news the injustices that have been committed against the African American populace. It is so common that even African-Americans themselves have accepted this and found ways to deal with it. Brent Staples makes a point
Education Reality in America “All systems of the society are meant to serve the mind, not the mind to serve the systems,” by Abhijit Naskar. The Rhetorical situation in the essay “Still Separate, Still Unequal: America’s Educational Apartheid” by Jonathan Kozol happens to be the differences in school systems by ethnicity rates. It is interpreted by the speaker that minority races are shown by the government they are not equally important because they have a lack of funding, old school buildings, and only are introduced to the races they see every day unlike the white schools who are introduced to various ethnic groups. The readers would refer to the speaker as passionate about the government making an effort to fix the school
