Without a doubt comedian D.L. Hughley is one of the sharpest cats around when it comes to issues of the black community in society today. Hughley’s insights and experiences as a black man, father, comedian and citizen has enabled him to look at issues crystal clearly. And, his brilliant humor, allows him to deliver information that often has us laughing, and learning.
In this instance Hughley takes on notable black celebrities Charles Barkley, ESPN’s Sage Steele and most recently, Dez Bryant, for their takes on the shortcomings of the black community. But the shortcomings of the black community are no more than the shortcomings of any other community that face our challenges.
More often than not, the worst of the black community is represented as being all. It is particularly frustrating when Barkley, Steele and Bryant reinforce those misconceptions. Check out Hughley’s video linked below. And, continue to visit us at TheAfricanAmericanAthlete.com.
