Black Men in Public Spaces Pre-reading

These questions are due tomorrow (Tuesday):

1.Are black men the only ones stereotyped by our society? What other groups are?
2.Have you ever been in a position of suspicion being suspected of wrong-doing just because of your age, race, sex, or ethnicity? Describe the situation, and what you did about it?
3.Is it the young black man's responsibility to let everyone know he is not a threat (wear a cowbell)? If so, how do we let it be known we are not a threat? If not, whose responsibility is it for ending this kind of prejudice?
4.Why would I have you read this essay? (BTW: you should actually ask this about every assignment)
