Malik Yoba is speaking out in a new documentaryÂ that exploresÂ the fear of Black men and the stereotypes that encourage it.
Filmmaker Mya B is getting ready to release a documentary about the stigma that Black men face with Afraid of Dark. Examining the two major stereotypical depictions of Black men (Mandigo and the Brute), Mya aims to debunk â€œscientific racism.â€
The film comes as the nation continues to ponder the impact of Floridaâ€™s Stand Your Ground Law that saw Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davisâ€™ respective killers walk away virtually scot-free. Not to mention the murder of New Yorker Sean Bell, who was gunned down by police just hours before his wedding.
