CNN Presents Black in America: The Black Man

You can click here or click on one of the links below in case you missed it. The ones with video cameras are from the show. The ones without are articles from various sources.  I have no comment on this because I did not watch it yet.  I will watch it over the weekend and then give my opinion.  I will say this though… Who is the target audience for this?  At times it seems like would this be a topic for review if Obama was not running for President?
