The New Stereotype
Stereotypes are no stranger to our society. Everyday, people are often viewed contrarily to their actual character - simply because of the dispositions associated with certain demographics and races. For this post in particular, men...black men are aiming to show the world that all black men aren't thugs or degenerates but know how to be dapper gentlemen.

Everywhere where black men are viewed with prejudice, The New Stereotype can effectively display to their cities and our society, that black men can be classy and a positive influence not only to our race but others as well.
