Jackson (U. of Illinois, Urbana) and Hopson (George Mason U.), leading scholars of black identity and intercultural communication, point to the case of Professor Henry Gates' arrest at his own home as a suspected burglar as an example of how black males are routinely stereotyped and treated regardless of credentials or status.
