The taser death of Robert Mitchell in Detroit, the tragic "friendly fire" shooting of a black police officer in New York and last week's Compton murder of a high school football star give three radically different examples of how the streets are still a dangerous place for black men -- even in the Obama era.

Even in the Illadel negroes aren't crazy enough to kidnap a white woman and her daughter.

What the fuck, lady?!

The rapper showed up late for the first day of his year and one day sentence.  He'll come out of this okay, we're certain, but it's never a good thing to see another young black man go to jail.



All that being said... I doubt THESE GUYS will be serving time in the near future...

See -- Second Amendment rights...

So let me get this straight, America elects Barack Obama becomes the first black president and there's solid African-American representation throughout his cabinet -- yet there are people who are "disappointed" and down-right pissed off that he nominated an Hispanic woman to the Supreme Court?

People, it's not our "turn".  There are no "turns".  That shit is over.

Maybe it's black folk who are holding up this whole idea of moving toward a color-blind society.

Yeah, that LeBron/Kobe NBA Final that was all but a certainty... we might have to hold off on that.

A holiday hangover leads to a sluggish day on the Market.

If confirmed by the Senate he'll be the first African-American to head NASA.

Score another one for the black nerd.

Black Iatrophobia

Perhaps it's a lack of education, maybe it's the legacy from the Tuskegee Experiements, but whatever the reason, black folk need to get over their fear of the doctor.  It kills

Ain't nothing to be afraid of.
