Bsi 1,410.99 +14.92 +1.06%

The market responds to Obama's more aggressive tone.


Lance Reddick (LTDAN) 12.36 +3.11 +25.16%

With roles on "Lost" and "Fringe", Mr. Reddick seems to be making out the best of all the actors from the talented troupe that comprised 'The Wire'.

Don't forget the Caddy...


Reginald Hudlin (HSPTY) 31.76 -4.27 -11.85%

While BET has branched out beyond the music videos and infomercials that characterized the network in the years before he arrived, it's safe to say that Mr. Hudlin's three year tenure didn't meet expectations, what with no break out hits and a production slate that in depth and quantity harkens back to a pre-millennial cable universe.

Do I hear 'House Party 5'?

Bsi 1,396.07 +12.36 +.89%

Light trading volume as yet another psuedo-controversy fails to fire up the Index.

Quite possibly the only one who could be offended.

Something tells me she can handle it.

Another down day as history repeats itself as farce in Las Vegas.

Not this guy again...

Black people too happy. White people too mad.

Bsi 1,406.29 -51.36 -3.52%

The Index tumbles on new poll data which indicates that perhaps John McCain's bet may be paying off.
I can't believe this shit could work... P.T. Barnum was right about Americans.


Wendell B. Harris' 1989 film about a black con-artist still bristles with originality and harkens back to a day when black independent cinema wasn't the exclusive domain of a certain cross-dressing producer of melodrama.


The Current Play of Black Quarterbacks in the NFL

Right now there are six starting black quarterbacks and only ONE legit elite talent -- Donovan McNabb.

The first week of the NFL season saw A LOT of poor play from quarterbacks of color.  And while the overall fortunes of some of the younger players, like Vince Young and JaMarcus Russell, have yet to be played out, the lack of bonafide successes is both a concern and a step in the right direction.

Analysts here are used to the idea that black athletes in overwhelmingly white sports or positions have to be significantly better than their white counterparts (see here: Warren Moon, Tiger Woods and Venus and Serena Williams).  The fact that so many of the black quarterbacks have played average, or worse, means we may be getting somewhere.  We just wouldn't suggest rushing out and drafting these young men on your fantasy football team.

Where did it all go wrong?... Oh yeah.

Bsi 1,457.95 +21.19 +1.45%

Another day of gains as Serena Williams reclaims the No. 1 ranking for the first time in over five years.

Williams hasn't been No. 1 since people were still saying 'you go, girl'... weren't saying it then, either, eh? You're right.
