Black people are interesting now?
CNN will be airing a series this week called Black in America on July 23rd & 24th at 9ET. The series will be hosted by Soledad O'Brien.
Forgive me for being cynical, but why is the media all of a sudden interested in black life and the black experience? Is it just because Barack Obama is running for president, and they have realized that African-Americans are people with lives worth covering? American media hardly ever covers anything black related with any seriousness, why now?
What say you, are the media genuinely interested in the black experience or is it just to stay relevant with the changes happening in America. Will you be watching it?
