Hey everyone. I wrote a post in anticipation of CNN’s “Black in America 2.” Among other topics, it touches upon blacks and the media, education and the prison industry.

I’ve decided to cross-post it over at my blog. Here’s a snippet:

On Blacks and the Media

What we’re really talking about is the blessing (or curse) blacks feel to be a spokesperson for the entire race. At the heart of many a controversy isn’t necessarily the issue being discussed, but rather HOW that issue is presented to the rest of America. Admittedly, this concern speaks more of white perceptions (or, better put, blacks’ anticipation of white perception) than the merits of the argument itself.

Feel free to swing over and read the rest when you get the chance. You can find it HERE.
