Considering the Formal Writing of Others and Applying What We Learn Part One – Black Men and Public Spaces
The purpose of this story is to let everyone know about the stereotypes and opinions made about black men. I had no idea that people really were so scared by black people at night so often. I can understand being scared if you’re walking alone at night. I even get scared when I’m walking alone at night, but I don’t discriminate on who I’m scared of. If I see a White, Hispanic, Japanese, or Chinese creep man I’m going to be just as scared of them as if I saw a black creepy man. Creepiness is truly universal.

The main audience for article could be the actual black men being stereotyped in the essay. The people who are scared of the black men could also be the main audience. This essay could show those people that not everyone is bad and that it hurts to be stereotyped in such a horrible way. The black men that actually give people cause to be scared would also be the perfect audience. Maybe this essay can open there eyes to what they are doing to themselves.
