This is an interesting topic that I myself have not thought about a lot. I feel like I am unconsciously categorizing black men into the things you have described as a result of media influences and past portrays of black men. Your explanations are concrete and seem to provide solid justification as to why black men are seen as “intellectually inferior, sexually charged, and violent”. Your example of modern-day solutions to this issue in the form of the movie “Moonlight” also illustrates another piece of evidence that proves against the common perception that black men are just “beasts”. It would be fascinating to discuss what other forms of “combating” or solutions our society can take or have taken in order to rid this old misconception of black men.
