Two new episodes from CNN's highly regarded series Black in America debut this week, providing new opportunities for folks to get an objective view inside the southside nation (that includes you booshie negros up in Martha's Vineyard...). On Wednesday, July 23rd at 9 pm ET, the focus will be on 'The Black Woman and Family' (also known as 'The Southside Shorty & Fam' here in the Malone Zone). CNN breaks this episode down as an exploration of '...the varied experiences of black women and families and investigates the disturbing statistics of single parenthood, racial disparities between students and the devastating toll of HIV/AIDS...the progress of black women in the workplace and the status of the black middle class'.
Then on Thursday, July 24th at 9 pm ET, the focus shifts to 'The Black Man' (which truthfully should have been shot on location here in the basement, y'all, but that's just me...) to provide an evaluation of '...the state of black men in America and explores the controversial topics of black men and fatherhood; disparities between blacks and whites in educational, career and financial achievement; and factors leading to the dramatic rates of black male incarceration. The documentary also examines the achievements of black men and the importance of the positive influences of black fathers'.
Both episodes will be hosted by smooth shorty Soledad O'Brien, one of CNN's most ethnically diverse reporters (if she had married Tiger Woods, their kids would have qualified for the new racial category 'Global') so ol Ty is expecting two, well constructed, informative, thought provoking pieces. Kinda like my posts. We'll see if Soledad is able to bring the heat like ol Ty. Don't say I didn't let y'all know about this in PLENTY of time.
