yes, it was. Considering Ice Cube's past albums and then his recent movies, I don't think he can make the reverse move happen. We'll see, I guess. He should probably stay on the Queen Latifah plan...make a jazz album or something.

You know, though, I've never felt like CNN was talking to me. I remember when bin Laden invoked Malcolm X to sway black Americans over to his cause, CNN has the audacity to warn its viewers that black Americans were not a threat. I will never forget that.

As a black woman I'm so glad I watched the first show.

See, all this time I've been laboring under a miscomprehension, a false assumption as it were. I'm glad the show could help me clear this up. See, all this time I just assumed that a black woman was a woman who was black. You know, a black female. But thanks to CNN, now I know that a black woman is just a curtain, which opens to reveal the truly important phenomenon: the black man. The original translation of 'black woman' is apparently invisible opening act. I mean, a whole two hours devoted to black women is wayyy too much; thank goodness they just dropped the pretense half way through and got back to talking about the black man. For a second there, someone was trying to give black women a voice. ::)

I laughed myself into a coma after reading this  :D

Hopefully you all caught this yesterday and the day before.  If not they're re-airing this weekend.

http://www.cnn.com/SPECIALS/2008/black.in.america/

For those who saw it - Thoughts?

To be honest I was quite disappointed with the woman one more than I was w/ the man one but I was disappointed in both.  The woman one didn't have very much variety. Therefore I could see some intellectual making the argument that all the problems they were having could be explained by something other than race.  But I think in all fairness I built it up in my mind too much before seeing it.  They made it seem like it was going to be this groundbreaking thing...and it wasn't.

Dyson and his bro was an interesting segment. Although I really couldn't get down with the whole dark skin light skin thing they were trying to do.  Bit of a stretch.

I watched the first one on black women and was sorely disappointed so I skipped the one on black men. I guess the target audience wasn't black people in the slightest. I can say, though, since it aired, white people have been less afraid to ask to touch my hair:-\

Ask?  I went through a period in college where people felt the need to rub and or touch my head Every time I got it cut. Nothing peeved me more than that.


Word 7S-  at least you got asked!  I wouldn't even know what to do with myself if I got asked.  They just do.  But it's slightly better than my own ppl yanking the crap out of my hair and asking me "is that weeve"?


lol. I guess "is that weave" is the black girl specific to "acting white."

First let me say that I am "white", or rather, not "black".

Nothing I saw was new in this report.  In fact......I still have had the same question for years which is....

"Ok....so what are you going to do about these issues".  I have heard so many interviews with black people talking about "what we have to do", and see a rare few doing anything.  The only way to move on is to just move on, and do something about it.  I am quite sick of hearing excuses and reasons for why people are in such a bad state.  Who gave a crap about the Jews?  Just do something about it and stop talking about it!

Therefore, before this post gets ANY fiery responses from my fellow black Americans, ask yourself what you have done about it, and what you are doing about it.

Lol my white college roommate loved to do that.  But you must admit, it does feel nice to the touch after a cut.

like this?

lol. Just last week a white lady told me, "You're ________, for a black guy." Now that will make a brotha go Nat Turner in the workplace. Obviously, she didn't watch CNN's Black in America.
