I am sorry but what was the point of this article?  I am a 30 y/o black professional and I am not really feeling this article.  Though I appreciate the author giving insight on how black men have a certain style and demeanor, but was this article really needed for the Being a Black Man Series?

Cool to me is knowing that as a black man, I come from a strong group of people who endured oppression and still kept their faith; understanding that the freedoms I enjoy today are because of the selfless sacrifices that our ancestors made so that I could have choice to go to college and vote in elections.  That is what cool means to me; not so much how I walk or what I wear.

I always look forward to reading James Collier’s Blog page: “Acting white”  Here are two blog post he made about this article.
