African American Sexuality. Demasculization of the African Amercian Male in Film


Essay, 2015

5 Pages, Grade: A


Abstract or Introduction

Historically masculine black sexually has been associated with aggression and dominance as well as being synonymous with having a large sexual organ. Currently in the mainstream hip-hop genre this focal point is prevalent and continuously perpetuated in the everyday lyrics of its artists.

As author Ronald L. Jackson II explores in Scripting the Black Masculine Body: Identity, Discourse, and Racial Politics in Popular Media the embracing of what he calls "the hypertext of sexuality(Jackson p.104)" drives the music and media streams of black culture. Although glamorized, the idea of all black men being well-endowed has many negative undertones such as being lustful predators and intellectually inferior.
