On the other hand, Dickerson is addressing the Black males, continuing to live up to the existing stereotypes and she makes it apparent in “Who Shot Johnny?” Dickerson’s anger, fueled by the Johnny getting shot and the traumatic experiences she suffered through during her younger years, push Dickerson over the edge.

“Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home : Racial Violence in Florida” by Tameka Bradley Hobbs discusses the great lengths of horror that took place in the state of Florida. From the beginning Hobbs starts with the emotional story of Bernice Golden who discovered the body of her son hung in her mother's yard and was not convinced that her son had committed suicide as the law enforcement had suggested.
