Black Male Privilege?

A new look at the cross section of race and empowerment as it relates to black men has spelled out a new theory that one sociologist dubs “black male privilege.” Host Michel Martin speaks with L’Heureux Lewis, assistant professor of sociology at the City University of New York, for more on why he thinks black male privilege exists.

MICHEL MARTIN, host:

Im Michel Martin, and this is TELL ME MORE from NPR News.

Firstly, look at the most powerful woman in television, and how she also helped revolutionize the film industry, Oprah Winfrey. Its part of our Divas on Screen series about black women in film. The Oscars are this weekend. Thats coming up.

But first, we want to talk about black men for a moment because on just about any day, there is some tragic story about black men in the news on the Internet or bandied about at the water cooler. And often those stories are about how black men are mistreated by police or underserved by educators or also about how they are falling short in some way. But sociologist LHeureux Lewis, who is himself a black man, has been thinking about and documenting a fresh take on the question of black men and race and power, as a theory that he calls black male privilege.

And if that raises your eyebrows, you are not alone. So, we called him to find out more. Hes – LHeureux Lewis is an assistant professor of sociology at the City University of New York, and he also joins us now. Welcome, thank you for joining us.

Professor LHEUREUX LEWIS (Sociology, City University of New York): Thank you for having me on.
