Being a [Black] Man in America, Contrast 50 Cent and Obama (video)

This powerful Byron Hurt youtube video explores Manhood in the Black Community comparing two Iconic figures Barak Obama and rapper 50 Cent. I also wrote about this on Elephant Journal’s site.

I first read this post on William Harryman’s site The Masculine Heart. To me this video is an important contrast within the black culture between two very different messages about what it means to be a Man. It is obvious and clear that both Men have a huge following and both represent opposing views of Being a Man. However, the video also reminds us that both men found Big success despite the odds.

How do these two men differ from white Manhood? What are the important lessons here? What do different cultures and different races have to teach about being a Man?
