I’m sure all of you have seen the Antoine Dodson video. If you haven’t, I posted a link to it below.

In the aftermath of this video, there have been many on the net who think Antoine Dodson makes us look bad. There are others who just look at it as a funny video regardless of color.

Personally, I feel many of us have the same issues President Obama has. While Obama does everything in his power to not talk about race (think he will seem racist/one-sided to white folk), many of us want any images of “ignorant, uneducated” Blacks to disappear from the TV screens and daily life. In some cases, many of us don’t even want to associate with or acknowledge them.

A few years ago, I was riding on the 1 train in NYC and a poor Black man entered the car. He was acting a bit wild and an older African American lady said: “No wonder they hate and make fun of us.” I disagreed with that statement. Too many Blacks care about what other ethnic groups/races think of them. That has to stop. We have to realize that for every Black Antoine Dodson, there are plenty of Whites and Latino’s who act just like him.

With all that being said, where do you stand on this? Do you think its embarrassing to us or just a funny clip?
