Over the years i have searched for artistic black nudes…they are very hard to find on the Net.  Much of what i find appears more pornographic in style and ideal, then artistic.  Now is there anything wrong with the nude black male being portrayed in a erotic fashion?  No, there is not.  But it feels to me that this is all we have.  In this post i will show pictures of nude black males, and make some comments.

being nude is a casual thing.  And yet i can tell you now that many blacks see it as a very serious thing.  Forbidden and taboo.

But why?  What is there to be afraid of?

Here we see a nude black male covering his ‘shame’.  That’s the only way to describe it in my mind.  Why else would you cover up your penis unless you’re ashamed of it.  And what is there to be ashamed of?  Or is it…

   

Fear?  And yes i chose the biggest pic possible to illustrate the absurdity of it all!  We can no longer claim white men will get upset by this sight.  But i think many blacks feel ashamed or put off by the sight of a black male with a big penis.  Our own fears of not measuring up, of women running in horror, being called a freak, or oversexed.  It’s silly isn’t it?

Will this make some of us feel better?  Less imposing isn’t he?  Amazing when you think about though…

This guy went outside nude.  And he’s probably got more guts then 85% of Black America, maybe even me,  because this was a public place.  And he sure ain’t the epitome of black beauty.

In the end the nude black male has a long way to go in my opinion.   We have to get away from the sensual and pornographic….

To the artistic…

so we may be seen as beautiful and perhaps even divine,

and finally when we reach the point where our nudity is no longer shameful or secretive…

We shall see our black nudity as mundane, everyday, perhaps even a little boring…

that is when we really will feel at home in our own skin, and be happy with ourselves…

      

But until then we shall remain  asleep and in shadow…but none the less handsome and beautiful…

Black is beautiful.  No matter the gender…
