Guess what new media -- arresting Professor Gates WAS stupid.  He didn't say racially motivated.  He said stupid.  Which it really, really was.

As they'd say on Family Feud, "Good answer.  Good answer."

The Obama insider gets the New York Times Magazine treatment.

Still a free agent, the last few seasons has seen this former face of The Association fall from the NBA firmament back to earth.  Now it seems he can only makes the news as a part of a strip club rumor.  How the mighty have fallen.

No one loves A.I. like we do.  Still, it's looking more and more like these photos came from the "good ole days".

If the first CNN "Black in America" was basically a primer to prepare America for the possibility of having a black president, then what's this one for?

Charges dropped.  Good.  Still wish we never got there.

Aww, man... we didn't even get a chance to print up those "Free Skip" t-shirts.

Hey Black Men, looking for a new way to attract the attention of law enforcement?  How about this: Trying To Get Into Your Own Home While Black.

Ah, Boston... all the racism of the deep south, minus the awesome food.


HBO'S Prom Night in Mississippi

Much like excellent The Order of Myths, this documentary explores the continued tradition of segregation in the deep south.


German Sprite Ads

Just last week we gave some dap to Microsoft for going the interracial lovin' route in an ad.  A German Sprite ad shows how to do it the wrong way.

So Jesse and the other "black leaders" want Obama to engage with them, er... the black community more.  We believe by that taking steps to end our two ours, health care crisis and economic freefall he'd be doing more than enough for the black community.

Rev. Jesse Jackson said that he and other African-American leaders “want to engage more fully with [Obama] because there is a lot of unfinished business.” While Jackson noted that the president has met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus and with some African-American mayors, Jackson said he has yet to sit down with Obama.

So Jesse can shut the fuck up -- thank you very much.
