Anyone else remember the 'Skinhead' books of the 70's? (Obviously most people won't.)

I just think it's nice people are reading.

I saw these in the African-American section of the local Hastings. Right next to Toni Morrison and Alice Walker. Represent.

lostinkorea - I never said the Harlequin Romance novels were fine literature either, but they did not play on a stupid white stereotype. You didn't see Harlequin Romances called "Trailer Park Passion". These GhettoRomances are dumbed down and perpetuate the stereotype that all black men are thugs, and black women are just single mothers. {A romance with a pregnant chick? She's gotta be single amiright?}

So, YES they do perpetuate a negative image of black people, and YES I am called a racist if I ever hint at that same stereotype.

Again, as I say in almost every thread, personal responsability. If the black community doesn't like people thinking they are thugs, stop glamorizing thug culture. Don't blame me if you gave me a bad impression of yourself.

I'm currently working on:

"Food Stamp Rage Pt. 1:
"Father's Day: Confuzion in Da Hood"
"Bitch Slap Street Rap"

It's fun using the phrase 'dat ass' twice every page.

"then tell me I'm a racist for believing the stereotype"
________

Gerry, I am assuming you're being sarcastic. What about those ridiculous Harlequin romance books? Do you believe those are true as well? These books are fiction, meaning, NOT REAL. And furthermore, there are idiots/liars/thieves/ignorant people of all colors...

I love that everybody is at least trying to take part in literary arts. Despite the terrible genres that are coming out of it.

It's called "street lit."...

Everyone has their interests, it's a shame that people don't enjoy the classics anymore but hey, as long as it keep people reading.

They'll publish things like this, then tell me I'm a racist for believing the stereotype they perpetuate.

Can't win for losing.
