Heaven just got a little richer... or something like that -- we're not quite sure. Reverend Ike's dead.

Barack Obama (BHO) 287.18 -11.11 -3.37%
Dear President Obama,
We here at the Index are big fans. Big fans. But perhaps now's a time good time to say that maybe you shouldn't try to be all things to all people at all times. Maybe, just maybe, now's the time to take your congressional majority and push through your agenda instead of DRINKING BEERS WITH TWO DUDES WHO SHOULD HAVE MOVED ON BY NOW! Beer summit, dude?! Beer summit?!

Kudos to the Republicans and the Political Right for FINALLY coming out against racism.
Why is the Index up, you might ask? Because we just love us some irony.

Blacks and the Mobile Internet
A latest Pew Report notes that blacks are the mobile internet's best customers.
We got the hook up!
TBS' Are We There Yet
The bargain basement-ing of black television continues as TBS picks up the Ice Cube movie franchise to series under a similar deal that brought us Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Meet the Browns.
