In his article, Malco places much, but not all, of his focus on the media:

Don’t you find it peculiar that the same media outlets who have worked so diligently to galvanize the negative stigmas of black men in America are now airing open debates on improving the image of black males in American media? Do you honestly think CNN is using their competitive time slots for philanthropy?

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” – Rahm Emanuel

Malco also touched on culture, Chicago violence that hardly gets a blurb from the media, education and politicization of events that seeks to score political points instead of solve problems.

Actress Stacey Dash responded:

Other tweeters have weighed in:

Malco’s opinion certainly adds depth and breadth to the debate.
