The Index says goodbye to a hip-hop label that kept it real and produced one of the greatest records of the past decade shutters its doors. Def Jux will be missed.

Pour a little on the curb people.

We don't agree with his politics, we hate the song and we're pretty sure he'll be the only brother at this Tea Party nonsense this weekend, but by writing the tea-party anthem he's carved out a place for himself... at least 'til they figure out he ain't white.

They say "Dixie" was written by a black man, too. For what it's worth.

From George Lopez's segment to the upcoming Henry Louis Gates PBS doc, it seems negroes are fascinated with just how black they are. Can't say we see the point of that. Personally, we thought we left that shit behind.

Aside, of course, from the fact that the proceeds will be going to Haiti -- the only good thing to come from this "We Are The World" re-make is that it should turn out to be about as unmemorable as the flash in the pan chosen to sing the first line, Justin Bieber. Way to go Quincy/Lionel.

Are you fucking kidding me? We don't normally advocate violence against children, but this mofo needs to be stopped.

A dark day in New York and on the Index as the world learns a symbol of symbol of black victimhood at the hands of police dies, unarmed, in the street...

...and a symbol of black rage returns to the court.

Lee Daniels becomes the first African-American to be nominated for a Best Director Oscar. Oprah done did it again, folk. And you just know that somewhere Spike's gotta be mad.

Black people: if you got something you wanna do in life, whether direct a hit movie or run for president, be sure to get Oprah on your side. Seriously.

Ugh... We have a question for you Tyler -- Why are you making a sequel?

How do you make Janet Jackson look that bad?


A gripping read.


Herschel Walker

We prefer to remember this...

rather than this...


What?! This brother was left off???

Caressa Cameron becomes the eighth African-American Miss America (eighth, who knew?). Too bad no one cares about pageants anymore. It hasn't been on a network in five years. Still, here's hoping she's more Vanessa Williams than Carrie Prejean.

There was no avoiding this song in 1992. None.
