The 'Baby Boy' Complex

Thursday, April 30, 2009


In John Singleton's movie "Baby Boy," starring Tyrese Gibson, the life of a single black male is cast against an unforgiving world with dangers and obstacles outside his door. Inside his mama's house was the warm care and nurturing of a single mother who was at her wit's end with his grown-but-childish antics.
Singleton used the film to underline several themes that he apparently saw in black Americana: The young black male failed to see the importance of becoming a man.
That not having a father at home was no excuse to shirk responsibility.
That alpha males that entered their domain were seen as threats.
Was it all true? Was it ever? Is it still true?
Is there a 'Baby Boy' complex among black males?
