The first week of the new decade sees the New York Times declare Harlem safe for the masses and Glen Beck show his racism -- again.

African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that's not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America. Ok, so you were brought over -- either your family was brought over through the slave trade or you were born here and your family emigrated here or whatever but that is not a race.

Thanks Glen. Cause Afric-- I mean, blacks aren't allowed to define ourselves.

While we are generally skeptical of any award show that heaps praise and recognition on House of Payne, we have to give the Image Awards some dap for nominating Barry Jenkins' Medicine for Melancholy.


If you haven't seen it yet -- do so now.

Sometimes, someone else says it so well that there's nothing for you to add (via gawker).
Declarative PBS host and multimedia phenomenon Tavis Smiley is ending his "State of the Black Union" conference after ten years, because he needs time for other projects like—seriously—publishing R. Kelly's memoirs. Post-racial world, you're a wondrous place!

Good for the Secret Service for taking the Obama poison pen inauguration threat seriously. Still, Somali militant factions drumming up the case to get rivals in trouble can't be good for our index.
Talk about black on black crime, damn. Now you got the Secret Service on your ass.

Plains, Georgia

President Obama is found hung in effigy in former President Carter's hometown.

Bill Powell dies. Black dude tries to blow up a plane. Mayweather fight may be off. Gilbert Arenas pulls a gun on his teammate. Clearly y'all can't be left alone for two weeks.
