    Hmmmmm? So why did the brotha agree to be Scooby-Doo in the 1st place though? Isn’t that part of the problem? If you let people demean you right?

      Riiiiight! If you have to drop such an important part of yourself [in his case, dignity!], that is not friendship! Not even a kick it buddy!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one affected by this image. I almost couldn’t click on the article to read because I kept looking like, really? Did he really agree to do this?

      LOL they didn’t have a feature image, so I had to do it. I thought it was fitting for the subject; sometimes we stoop so low just to “fit in” and this is how we look to those who see through the nonsense.

    Great piece. Thanks for sharing Kelley. That image is a great summation of black folks being homogenized and pasteurized .. running around licking the boots of white folks. We look foolish; and I am glad the author says whiteness is “intoxicating”.

        Girl, I just can’t with that kid playing Scooby Doo!
        I mean, they couldn’t pay me to degrade myself like that-even when I was his age.
        Shameful.

    That black guy in that picture is a shell of a man. He has no dignity or self respect. He see himself as an inferior being so he has no problem playing a dog to his masters. This is true menticide at it’s finest! He is truly pathetic!

      Truly! This is how every black shell looks when they love + praise white people and non-blacks instead of their own.
