Bsi 2,123.41 -8.46 -.4%

So an HBCU freely and fairly elects its first non-black Miss Hampton resulting in some unhappy negroes.

And, of course, some who take it in stride.

This is nothing to be upset about.  Things are changing people.  No one has a permanent hold on any office or title now -- and that's the way it should be.  This shouldn't have to be said to black people, particularly in light of the recent tone and tenor of the "tea party" protests.


Oprah Winfrey (HARPO) 171.31 +12.44 +7.26%

From Taylor Swift to the Tyson-Holyfield reunion Winfrey's show is still the go to stop on the P.R. train.

Still not to be fucked with.


Louisiana (LOUX) 12.33 -3.49 -22.06

Lest we forget that Louisiana is Louisiana in the wake of President Obama's visit to the Crescent City word comes out about a Justice of the Peace who refuses to grant marriage licenses to interracial couples.

Oh, Louisiana...
