h2> weight and I didn’t make DNA. I looked at you guys for five minutes and the DNA agreed,” he said, laughing. “You’re not going to look the same in five years. People are going to change.” As a case in point, he pointed to himself. When he was in college, he said, he was thin. “And then, when I went to the Navy and I became a SEAL, I said, ‘OK, I’m going to walk around with this big sweater on my shoulders and I’m going to back off on the vodka and the whiskey,’ ” he said. “When I graduated from the Navy, I was wearing thin suits; I was thin-skinned; I was walking around with my head held high, not realizing how much of a target I was.” Black Americans today go through a different experience. In the 1960s and ’70s, a time of dramatic transformation for black people in other parts of the country, Harlem in New York City was the last place they would have expected to find themselves, said Jill McDaniel, an assistant professor of sociology at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and the author of “This Land is Their Land.” Her neighborhood, taped between the largest concentration of black men in the country and the largest concentration of black college students, was a hostile, stereotyped place where police patrolled in unmarked cars and black men – the sign of the street hustler – could expect to be stopped, body searched and their possible drugs confiscated. Some of the women who lived there did well – like McDaniel’s grandmother, who was a world-renowned jazz singer. “My grandmother was a survivor,” she said. “She was in a situation where life had been good for her, but the moment she felt like she was taken for granted and that life had taken its last breath, she shifted. And she took control of that life completely. She became a strong, powerful, free woman who knew who she was.
