I really loved the content on your page. I particularly loved the way you framed the argument under the 'social' subheading . Perhaps in addition to the physical representation and repeated character we see black men being asked to protray in film and media, you could add an aspect of 'emotional framing' to it. Men, but especially black men, have been stopped from expressing their emotions from a young age, attributing this to building a 'strong' character, and conforming to supposed gender roles. As a result, the Black community often see's generations of emotionally scarred men who did not recieve the resources and guidance to emote freely - adding to this persona of an 'cold, strong , gangsta' that they are repeatedly boxed into in film, books etc
