July 23rd & 24th CNN Presents: Black in America
Black Men and Black Women & Family
In this next installment of CNN's Black in America series, Soledad O'Brien examines the successes, struggles and complex issues faced by black men, women and families -- 40 years after the death of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
If you have questions about what it's like to be Black in America check this out then let's have a discussion on the 24th and 25th. I'm sure this will get to the heart of some very real and touchy subjects but guess what? Adopting a Black child does that. This is gonna be good for those of you who wanted something interesting back on my blog...I'm BAAACCCCKKKKK! So, I hope to see you back here then. There will be a test on blackness and black family. Just kidding! LOL
Buy it, Read it, Admire it, Save it!
The July Issue of the Italian Vogue (click on photo story to the left), it has all Black Models! WHAT!!!!!!!!!????? Ya heard me! Vogue Italia takes on racial discrimination in its July issue, which features only black models, including Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Iman, Pat Cleveland, Alek Wek, Chanel Iman, Jourdan Dunn AND Ethiopian model Liya Kebede.
I know you are wondering what the U.S. issue of Vogue is going to do right? Well, in July they also do something really tough. They write an article about discrimination. WHOMP WHOMP. Now for my sentiments... WHIMPS!!!!! PUNKS!!!!! COWARDS!!!! CHUMPS!!!! #$##!!!! You get the point! Good ole’ USA, we are always the last to do something “stand up” when it comes to race! Why can our beauty be appreciated globally but it is so difficult to be appreciated at home? What's up with that?
