This coming Monday, Unified Milwaukee will begin their series on Stereotypes and how the media plays a role in shaping in perpetuating them.  Jay from the morning show briefly mentions this in his blog.  I am really looking forward to this series. In earlier post I mention a film called "What Black Men Think" which is on DVD.  I found this video from the Today show. It is an interview between Matt Lauer and Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson.  He touches on the stereotypes and perceptions of hip hop culture in mainstream media.  I would love hear your opinions.
