  1. Great website!I didn’t watch Black in America 1 and I am not watching this one. If you watch it even to criticize CNN is still going to get the ratings, so I will not tune in, but I will read your blog to get your take on it.

  2. The site looks great! It’s nice to see many of the bloggers I read come to one place for a blog series. Watching BIA 1 was enough for me, but cosign with PI as well, that I’m looking foward to the analysis on the new site.

  3. I’ll be looking forward to the content on the site. And, BTW, nice picture of you there.

  4. Great idea you have. The tradgedy of violence against blacks, done by blacks, including those 26 kids shot to death in Chicago, needs a venue by esteemed Black writers like you.
