Bsi 1,774.59 +11.74 +.66%

The market takes a turn for the positive after a week of minor losses.


Lil Wayne (LILW) 16.28 +2.59 +15.91%

It's been a banner year for one of hip-hop's hardest workers.  First "Tha Carter III" goes platinum in a week and now he's picked up eight Grammy nominations.

Looks like he's gonna get another use outta that tuxedo.

We wonder how he'll celebrate when he wins...

Just stirring the pot... all in good fun, folks.


Clarence Thomas (JCT) .35 -.42 -54.55%

Analysts here didn't think this Supreme Court justice could get more bankrupt, but now comes word that Thomas is asking his fellow justices to consider a case that challenges Barack Obama's citizenship.

Leave it to this notoriously silent bootlicker to pick this moment to speak his conscience.  There are no words.

Bsi 1,770.65 -6.54 .37%

A slow day causes slight losses, led by McDonald's, as a result of their latest ad campaign.

McNugget's Love

Analysts here can't figure out who this indicts more: Mickey D's or the million and one Chico DeBarge videos that are EXACTLY like this commercial.

Sadly, as creative a people as African-Americans are, the one place where there's been little movement in the past decade and a half has been music videos.  

Of COURSE the Roots nailed it... and ten years ago to boot.

Bsi -1,777.19 -50 -2.74%

World AIDS Day brings to light the fact that African-Americans make up nearly half of all new AIDS cases in the United States.


It's worth a look-see.  Even if you're not a sports fan.

Basketball and literature get the Reese's peanut butter and chocolate treatment... and the results couldn't taste better.


College Football

Forget the BCS mess.  How can you get behind an institution that features a largely black, unpaid labor force and now, with the resignation of Sylvester Crooms at Mississippi St., only three African-American head coaches (of 119 top division schools)?

And then there was one. Randy Shannon: The only black head coach of a major conference college program.

Bsi 1,827.19 -17 -.92%

December starts in the red as New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress shoots himself in the foot -- literally.

For the last time negroes: bringing a gun to a club isn't an exhibition of "survival instinct".  Avoiding any place where you wouldn't feel safe without a loaded weapon is.
