Are You Planning on Watching? CNN: Black in America

So Soledad O'Brien is doing this 2 Day look at Black America our, "successes, struggles, and complex issues faced by black men, women, and families -- 40 years after the death of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr."

You know I"m always skeptical when mainstream media decides to talk about Black folk. Rarely does it come across as little more than "those Niggas need to do better." BUT, O'Brien is a good journalist, so we will see.

Let me know if you all are watching. I'd love to post reviews on how well you thought they "dissected" us Black folks.

I'll be watching it with a critical side eye and will likely post something about it.

I'm very much looking forward to what Average Bro and fieldnegro will have to say about it. Gina over at WAOD too.
