Yeah you can be black and not be cool. but those type of role models aren't "cool." they have to have some type of charisma....pop-culture likes the type of person to have some type of charisma/personality that is interesting. is it may be they are dull and boring or can they make you laugh? some "white" people like blacks who make them laugh and entertain. always smiling, always cracking a joke....people(even black people) aren't ready for a serious African-American or person of color to be serious then they become a threat or fit the stereotypical view.....'pac was right when he said "we ain't ready to have a black president."(if you get my message)
