Since the dawn of time, white supremacy has tried its hardest to paint Black men in an unfavorable light. From ridiculous stereotypes in the media to mediocre storytelling attempting to portray us as sub-humans, the tactics have been asinine at best. The beauty about taking back our narrative and telling it as it is, is that we get to debunk those insidious messages that have been ingrained in our community for centuries. Thankfully, we have Tina Knowles-Lawson doing that through Profiled: The Black Man, the docuseries that she executive produces alongside its creator Trell Thomas. This program, brought to viewers by Discovery Plus and The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), dives into those insidious stereotypes by combating them through real-life testimonials from prominent Black men, all the while confronting the harmful narratives that threaten to destroy the perception of us. This game-changing series will hopefully pave the way for the importance of more storytelling that punctures the poisonous balloon of misinformation that is constantly fed to our impressionable minds.
