Interesting. Today, advertising is full of images of persons of colour! Woman of course, because brown women are generally better looking, but gentlemen of colour too. I hope Huey thinks we've made some progress, whereever he is..

    As one would not expect black media to create positive white male images. ;-)
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Well said Reek and Archer. Jesse Jackson and Lewis Faracon are examples of Newtons expectation.

    Can anyone name a while male father figure in today's sitcoms who is not a buffoon who is constantly corrected by his obviously much more intelligent wife? One of those security system companies advertise frequently. Their commercials show someone breaking into a house with children cowering alone in a corner. Has the burgler ever been anything other that white? Huey may have been right then; today has a new agenda.
     -- Ken, Allyn, WA     
    Make that agenda (but y'all knew what I meant).
     -- Anonymous     
    That would explain why they contually pump Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson. -Why can't Walter Willims be a "black leader"?

    I don't see blacks creating positive black images, male or female.
     -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
    Nor do I expect black media to create positive images of whites. It's up to the black males to create positive images of themselves. Nobody else can or should ...just don't create false negative images.
     -- Jack, Green, OH     
    He is right. Jews are not white. They have an agenda against the "goyim".

    Everything is based on the "black" and "white" issue when in reality, neither of them understand that this land belonged to "Native Americans". Will the "black" and "white" race ever get this never ending arrogance out of thei system? Not as long as there are those smart enough to keep the "name slinging" going for their own edification. Never satisfied with what you have. Sad thought that as "smart" as people are, that do not co-exist as well as Dolphins, Penquins or Pigeons.

    "I do not expect the white media to create positive black male images." Same self serving Pharo complex.
     -- Sandra, Albemarle     
    The problem with the media in America, is that they are NOT reporting informative news. The media is more concerned with scaring the public than protecting OR informing it.

    This quote is so true!!! Today in 2009 the media style criticize positive black Images ...... Pres. Obama and Michael Jackson. they are in the media everyday!!!
     -- April, Decatur     
    I believe the quote still rings true. Racism is alive and well although more covert now. Power to the People!
