This is important because these harmful black stereotypes help to maintain a false culture of black "criminal" pathology. As these kinds of harmful and racist stereotypes, that unfairly target black people, continue to be reinforced in society, a climate of inequality, intolerance and injustice continues to play itself out in our national narrative. This video also depicts a disturbing reference to violence against women as a normative and even funny act which is equally as disturbing as its racist projections. In this case, our great nation can never truly live up to our most powerful declarations, "All (wo)men are created equal" and "Liberty and justice for all," until we stop producing and promoting these kinds outrageous, racist and sexist images and actions.
