Bsi 1,346.03 -6.48 -.48%

With less than forty days until the election the market pauses to catch its breath.


ATLANTA (ATL) 32.31 +4.29 +13.28%

Gas crisis aside, this charming town has food, history and black folk of all hues and backgrounds. A place worth visiting more often.

"I tell you men, in about 150 years black people are going to LOVE this place. Dirty, dirty!"


The New York Knicks (NYKN) 12.65 -3.25 -20.44%

One of the world's most venerated franchises has turned from contender to punchline and this week things only got worse as word came down that underachieving guard Stephon Marbury is refusing a buy-out and instead wants his the entire $21 mil. the team owes him.

"What?! My shoes retail for $15, I got a jet and gas is expensive!"

Bsi 1,392.67 +7.23 +.52%

A day of relative calm (at least on this Index).


Black Patriotism

Right wing smear tactics and comments by Michelle Obama and Josh Howard have tried to color blacks as less than when it comes to patriotism.  However, all these moves are political as, in truth, blacks have been better to this country than it has been to them.

Brothers gonna work it out.

For over 30 million people of African decent call the United States home.  And we're not going anywhere.

Don't get it twisted.


Hate (and/or Haters, Hating, Hateration, Hater-ade, et al)

Mary J. Blige said it first.  We don't need no haters.  Saul Williams, though, said it best.

Bsi 1,385.44 -68.32 -4.69%

While analysts aren't surprised to find that race will play a role in the upcoming presidential election, a recent Associated Press poll lead to revelations that rocked the market.
Fewer than one in five white Republicans were willing to describe blacks as either determined, law abiding or dependable.  White Democrats fared better, but not much.

George Bush has company.

Market experts had been bullish following Barack Obama's winning the Democratic nomination and his subsequent lead in national polls.  However, these numbers paint a sobering picture about where we are today with regards to white attitudes about blacks.

"Not you Condi, you're one of the good ones."
