is everyone so afraid of black men?" In her new documentary, "Afraid of Dark",
filmmaker Mya B. attempts to answer this question. In examining two of the most
prevalent stereotypes about the black man as the brute and as the Mandingo we
are led on a journey to understanding how the fear of these stereotypes have
contributed to the rates of violence and incarceration against black men. We
see how racism uses black on black crime and other unfortunate occurrences in
black communities as justification for attacks on black males by police and
citizen vigilantes alike.
