Bsi 1,806.57 +44 +2.44%

A historic year for the market closes with the Index on the upswing.

It wasn't a bad year for black folk.  Particularly this guy.

Editor's Note:  The market will be closed until Jan. 5, 2009 in observation of the Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Years holidays.

Yeah, yeah... we know what we said about Kwanzaa.  It's a made up holiday, but it's one we'll be taking off.

Bsi 1,762.57 +10.93 +.62%

The Index feels charitable.  The result: modest gains.


This Charles Burnett classic can make for a excellent last minute gift for any cinephile.


Zwarte Peit (aka Black Peter)

Some analysts here thought about adding Kwanzaa to the "Sell" list, because, well... who really celebrates Kwanzaa.  However upon further review this Dutch tradition that deserves the proverbial "gasface" much, much more.

Say what you will about race relations in America, at least you'd never see THIS in 2008.

Seriously... wtf?

Bsi 1,751.64 -8.71 -.49%

The Index takes a bit of a step back as the weather affecting most of the country stalled the market as well as travel plans.
