The Index falls on expectations that Obama would have a substantial effect of decreasing the ethnic test score gap after only just over 100 days into office.  Patience, people.  Damn.

Kudos to the Delaware Department of Transportation for covering its ass... er, I mean, putting out a handy diversity memo highlighting "workplace faux pas".  We needed a good laugh.

The report advises employees to stay clear of statements such as:
  • Should we order fried chicken or watermelon for you? 

  • I am not prejudiced against black people, my neighbors are black. 

All that's missing such gems as: "Is it true what they say about black guys", "Can I touch your hair?" and, a personal favorite, "Hey, you're from Philadelphia, do you know Will Smith?

The scary thing, though, is that there are people who really do need to be told this kind of stuff.

They set the scene on the Sunset Strip in the 1960s, paving the way for black rock icons like Jimi Hendrix and Prince.

If you don't know Love's story, you better ask somebody.


Free Chicken

Sorry, folks, not even Oprah can pull that shit off without a hitch.

The Market gives Obama some credit for being "President funny".

Not bad, but I wouldn't quit the day job.
