Gates says in Sunday's edition of The New York Times Magazine that he donated the handcuffs to the new National Museum of African American History and Culture. Gates' arrest last July by police investigating a report of a possible break-in at his home near Harvard University sparked a national...

Mr. Walters was part of the panel that convened at Tavis' recent forum on "the Black Agenda" that aired on C-SPAN last night. He discussed in greater detail his ideas on a "Black Party" and at the end, essentially said that the 'naming' of such a group was not nearly as important as what the 'mission' of it should be. After his explanation, I understood his perspective .. and couldn't have agreed with him more. Unfortunately, it still seemed like he was talking about what would be a...

Quote by ER: " I'm not sure there is ANOTHER effective way to get Black people motivated!! I mean ... what else has (ever) worked??

And this short buzz is all about the upcoming 2012 election. If the President had come around Black folk during his...

Disagree with the negative takes. It's funny because you wouldn't expect such a little fella to come up with such a strong way to get his point across about his mama (first) and snack (second). It was simply a joke. Not an authentic take on Black life or serious study of single Black mothers, their children and their dating partners. It was just a humorous 30 second spot. This is one of the times where I think as a cultural/racial group, some of us are being a little too sensitive. If a...

Even if the man was drooling over the boy's mother, it still doesn't give the boy the right to slap the chips out of his hand. That kid in real life would've had the taste buds knocked out of his mouth, for slapping a chip out of a grown man's hand.
