DEAN ARRINDELL

Former stay-at-home dad. Writes about manhood, politics, pop culture, race and a bit of Britain.

I share concern for the emasculation of black men in our country today. But I don’t see it happening in instances of creative men stepping outside of the box and expressing themselves through fashion—to me, those are defiant acts of freedom. Instead, I see emasculation through the outlandish prison rates of black men in America or oppressive policies like stop-and-frisk that target young black men and turn them into statistics.
