What does it mean to be African American? Does it mean that Black people are poor, unintelligent, lazy, criminal, incapable of raising a family? Does it mean, as is suggested in a recent Washington Post article, that Blacks feel pain differently than Whites, therefore are treated differently by medical personnel? Does it mean that genetically African Americans are superior in muscle mass and coordination, able to play sports better than those of other races? That all Black women are angry and all Black men are worthless? On the next Another View, we'll talk about some of the prevailing myths about being Black in America, myths that unfortunately continue to strengthen during this political season, with our Round Table pundits, Roger Chesley, Columnist, Virginian-Pilot; Carol Pretlow, Political Science Professor, Norfolk State University, Bill Thomas, Community Activist; and guest pundit Delceno Miles, Owner, The Miles Agency.
