Okay, Then.

I don’t really get what the purpose of this is or who it’s aimed at, which I suppose makes it the perfect counterpoint to Black in America, after all.

    Well, it makes two of us, as they say.

    What I really don’t get is Ms. O’Brien’s fascination with the condition of Black Americans. In fact, she is so fascinated, that she’s hosting a second installment of the series.

      It’s not her — it’s the network.

    Wait GD, I dunno how the sequal is a countepoint to the first one, when the first one had no purpose nor was really aimed at anyone. I would say it follows in same tradition of uselessness.

      i’m talking about the website “Black Retort,” which bills itself as a response to the “Black in America” series, and to black media representation more broadly.

        ahhh my bad, I thought you were talking about the series itself (I read the blog but I did not put 2 and 2 together).

    Hmm, I just thought it was an opportunity to round Black internet users to their site – it’ll be interesting to see what advertisers CNN has sold on the idea of a hip, edgy-cool “black blog.”

    I am glad to see the the Black Snob on a bigger venue though.

    What would be cool about the Retort is if CNN takes the feedback and actually alters upcoming to prove that they are actively listening. I might be visiting after all.

    About Blacks in America 2 – is this the one where they reveal to America that there are gay people who are black/black people who are gay?
