What's Happening In Your World
. Last year, a (what many revere as) disturbing photo made its rounds on various websites. The photo features a group of friends dressed as the gang from Scooby Doo. Based on that description most people would assume that this was probably nothing more than an innocent Halloween picture; however, the person portraying the Great Dane Scooby Doo is a shirtless Black male with black spots painted on his naked upper body. Many believe it’s insulting to see a black man degrading himself to a dog  — on his knees, wearing a collar with a white man placing his hand over his head, as if he’s petting him. Many people believe the smiles on the faces of the four white people look gleeful and sadistic, as if they were being malicious in taking the photo. Readers of Bossip weighed in on the photo. One commenter with the screen name TheDevilPoopsToo, doesn’t believe the photo is racist: “ As a black man, I see nothing wrong because I’m pretty sure he made the choice to dress as Scooby by himself. He’s an adult and I’m pretty sure is capable of deciding for himself.  Peace and Love.” Eradicate The Bullsh!t , another commenter on the website, disagrees with TheDevilPoopsToo . “ C00n Breeze! Why you let those white folks dress you up as Scooby? Let them paint black dots all on your skinny black 95 pound a$$ and everything. Sit! Good Boy! Heel! Dance for your crackas, c00n for ya crackas !!!!!!,” he/she wrote. If this brother had dressed and posed the same way with brothers and sistas, the photo may not have acquired so much negative attention. Is this a racist photo? Why or why not?

  1. For the foolish people suggesting that this man came out of a one parent house hold, that may and may not be so. Robert Griffin III comes from a 2 parent home who taught him “not to see color”. These ignorant older black people are teaching and have taught a lot of black youth that they need to get in with them no matter what disrespectful thing they do to them

    He is not a reflection of all black youth men or women but he is an example of a problem we have. You have people who don’t know their history and have been taught to honor everyone but themselves.
    He has no respect because his parent(s) didn’t teach him any. You teach children to do what it takes to blend in and they are going to do it. And when they are grown, they are still going to do it.

  2. Only goes to show how far the Negro race has sunk, you blacks have no one to blame but yourselves its your fault the race sits on the edge of extension search the YouTube channel 5723michael view the videos on the weave wearing black women who want t be white because you weak brothers teach them that’s what y’all want. It’s sad very sad day wwww.amessagetoblackpastors-mdc.blogspot.com
