Been Watching CNN’s Black in America?

What do you guys think so far of “Black in America“?  Are they telling you things you already know as an African American?  Do you think the content of the shows will help non-blacks have some insight into what it truly is to be “Black in America”?  Do you think the content is watered down, right on point, or TMI?

Are you like me and feel that the timing of this has a lot to do with getting people ready (warming them up) for a black president?

I’m looking forward to the “Black Woman & the Family” episode tonight @ 9pm.  How about you?

CNN on Black In America

CNN is doing a whole lot of promotion and creating a lot activity around their “Black in America” series.  I’m glad to see it.  They’ve even teamed up with Essence Magazine for a special report, The Big Challenge
CORNEL WEST, DONNA BRAZILE, DR. JULIANNE MALVEAUX, GEOFFREY CANADA.
Those are some of my favorite black luminaries so I had to check it out.

“Abortion. Gay marriage. Immigration. For years we have debated these issues behind closed doors. Now GOP strategists are selling such subjects to us as the greatest threats to African-Americans, seizing on the conventional wisdom that we are politically liberal yet socially conservative. As 2008 approaches, we asked Black America’s keenest minds to weigh in on the real pressing issues we will need to deal with in the coming year.”  [Click here for what they had to say]

What do you have to say as an African American on the subjects of abortion, gay marriage, and immigration?
