For over 400 years, the majority white society has used many tools to reinforce a message that the peoples of African descent are less-than,not-equal-to, or not-good-enough. In this modern era information, the media, government and special interests use statistics to further promote the message of Black inferiority. What is most troubling is that Black Americans have internalized the misinformation, embraced the myths, and perpetuated the stereotypes, sadly reinforcing a collective misperception of our own identities.
