Summary: This article shows how equity research in mathematics education can be decentered by reporting the ``voices" of mathematically successful African American male students as they recount their experiences with school mathematics, illustrating, in essence, how they negotiated the White male math myth. Using post-structural theory, the concepts discourse, person/identity, and power/agency are reinscribed or redefined. The article also shows that using a post-structural reinscription of these concepts, a more complex analysis of the multiplicitous and fragmented robust mathematics identities of African American male students is possible -- an analysis that refutes simple explanations of effort. The article concludes, not with ``answers," but with questions to facilitate dialogue among those who are interested in the mathematics achievement and persistence of African American male students -- and equity and justice in the mathematics classroom for all students.
