Title:
The Usual Suspects: Black Men in Black Hoodies - TV News Remix
 
In this remix video we are trying to raise awareness about how the local nightly news talks about young black men.These type of vague yet ominous sounding suspect descriptions helps reinforced preexisting negative social stereotypes of young black men as all being "dangerous", "scary" or "criminals". We found these local news clips by searching for the terms "black male" and "black hoodie" on via Internet Archive's TV news database. "The Usual Suspects: Black Men in Black Hoodies" was remixed by the Film/Code/Remix class at BAVC in December 2012.
