Black Love (BLUV) 41.3 +5.91 +14.31%

Of late there's been a lot of talk about the state of black love and marriage so it's good to read about Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher and their 85-plus year marriage.


Torii Hunter (TH48) 1.18 -.33 -21.85%

"People see dark faces out there,'' Hunter, the Angels great centerfielder pointed out toUSA Today, "and the perception is they're African American. They're not us. They're imposters.''

Born in the 19th Century and lived to see a black President. Wow.

The saying goes you only do two days -- well, then Lil' Wayne only got one more to go -- 364 days from now.

I don't care who you are -- a year in prison is a waste of life.
