Robert Lindsay once called Black violence “Masculinity for people who’ve never had male role models.”
Damn, did I actually write that? I can’t believe I even wrote that. Damn that’s a brilliant concept.
Is there anything to it? What say you all?
I mean, it’s so obvious that this is just men doing when men always do – trying to be tough and hard via aggression, violence, brutality, intimidation, menace, etc.
In other words, by terrorizing people, mostly other men. Which is something we men do you know. Terrorize each other. Not just for the sheer fun of it, though it can be a kick. More for safety, status climbing, competition, pride, honor and especially that thing that everyone insists doesn’t exist anymore called masculinity, which is one of the most important concepts in any males life, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
