Modern Black Male Affection

I discovered this photo on Facebook.  Apparently, some woman took this photo to share with her friends and cause a stir of hatred.  I find the photo to be a positive representation of two young men who know how to love or at least not afraid to show affection publicly.  The problem that exists in American culture especially is that the world has set Black men up to fight each other.  We see this is varies outlets boxing, football, prisons.  The images that we are used to seeing with two black men are generally those where there is some form of competition.  The woman who took the picture probably didn't expect this photo to get this much shine, but it goes to show you what technology can do.

What do you think about the photo?

Do the young men in the photo not log online? I have not heard a statement or anything...i wanted to know who they were......or if they have seen that some idiot just posted their images all over online on so many sites....they have had to have heard or seen it by now.

btw, i think they look sweet. i love it.

I think that this is a great picture. They are so comfortable just being themselves. But this whole situation with the pic being posted to cause a stir, reminds me of what happened when the pics of the black couple who had a "marriage" ceremony, began to spread like wildfire across the internet. I just don't get the joy that people get from trying and/or starting controversy. This is the dis/ease that hurts, not only the the black race, but the human race.
