The Context of White Supremacy hosts our 11th and final study session on Dr. Tommy J. Curry’s The Man-Not: Race, Class, Genre, and the Dilemmas of Black Manhood. We were inspired to read this text after studying Pamela Evans Harris’s Black Love Is A Revolutionary Act – an error-filled, poorly researched book that unmercifully batters black males from beginning to end. Many listeners – male and female, found nothing wrong with black males being verbally berated and accepted the presentation of black males being the primary obstacle to ending Racism. Dr. Curry’s 2017 publication directly addresses black misandry – dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against black males. The book explores how multitudes commonly charge black males as being guilty of patriarchy and hatred of black females, while the evidence shows black males lack the power to protect themselves much less dominate anyone else. Last week’s session examined Kimberlee Crenshaw’s theory of intersectionality. Dr. Curry submits that this theory focuses attention on the abuses of black females, while erasing the vulnerability of black males while suggesting that they are less powerful versions of sexist White men. The book explores why the presentation of evidence that displays the fragility of black males is mocked and scorned as “privileging” black males at the expense of other more deserving victims.
