Black and Positive: What Black in America Brings To The Table

TIME OUT: It’s almost the LAST DAY to VOTE us into the final round of the Black Weblog Awards. Please make your mama proud and vote for us, it takes only 12 seconds to do if you know how to read. And we KNOW you know how to read. CLICK HERE NOW.

292-big-1-1243698551So, I missed the 8pm showing of Black in America 2.  I was out doing my part to bring the truth, the light, and the American way to minorities at a major university.

Yes, Panama is a teacher on the side.

As I currently sit and watch the last episode, I must admit, though its depressing as all hell, BiA2 has done some good.  And you know how much I love to highlight the good, great, and Beyonce things that exist in this world.  I mean, what the world needs now, is love, sweet love, that’s the only thing that there’s just to little of.

So, let’s look at some of the positive things about Black in America 2.

1)  More Black people are on TV

It’s like a Tyler Perry movie, except I’m not cringing every 10 seconds because a 6’5″ man dresses as a woman is on screen wearing a muumuu.  That alone is a win.  Thank you CNN…

2)  Since the show is really for white people, it’s safe to assume that white people that watch will give Black people jobs

I mean with such indepth and striking analysis of the Black condition, white people can’t help but want us to succeed right?  Yay!  I mean that’s great for the economy, world religions, and Beyonce.

3)  Get to see folks on the front lines

We so rarey get the opportunity to see who’s out there trying to make a difference that it is good to see and hear stories about people who, even if its a bit misguided or incomplete, are still doing more than those of us who’s contribution extends to merely watching Black in America.

4)  Soledad is making out like a mothertrucking champ

Black in America, Latino in America..she’s a nonstop snowball of investigative journalism.  My comments aside, I applaud her for getting stuff like this greenlighted, even if I don’t think they have the resources to really tackle anything.  CNN is the Defensive Back of doing race based investigative reporting.  But at least somebody’s doing it.  Kudos to Soledad.

5) A chick with the name Soledad is on air

I always liked that name.  And because of George Jackson it comes across as a revolutionary name.  Much better than Crispus, which by all accounts means, “he who gets shot first”.

6)  The Black upper class is given the opportunity to show off and air out some grievances

Most of us couldn’t care less about the plight of the upper crust, however, they still have a plight so in some ways, its good that they get the opportunity to get on TV and say, “its hard out here for me because white people still think I’m just a ninja.  Why for come they don’t realize that I’m rich and I’m wearing my clothes this way because I’m ironic?”  Point is, everybody has a story and everybody deserves the chance to tell it.  Like our ex-con friend from BiA2: Part 2 who from what I can tell…got popped DURING THE SHOW and is going back to jail???

Da hell???

7)  Lots of good advertising for some Black businesses

Nobody’s talking about it really, but I kind of feel like some of these segments (MLT, Black Marriage) were nothing more than long ass paid advertisements.  But Black business is just that, business, and needs customers.  So if BiA2 just added a few more folks to their client or consumer list, well, great. Even if more folks applying (can you even apply for it?) to MLT would only serve to make the program seem more exclusive.

8)  Got black people talking and congregating, without a DJ present

Very few things get black people that read talking about relevant issues.  And even less keep us doing it outside of the club.  Definitely a positive thing.

So in conclusion, CNN, Panama Jackson, and Wu-Tang Clan are for the children.

So my people, what good do you think comes from series like Black in America 2, if anything?

Or am I just blowing smoke?

Puff puff pass.

Panama Jackson is pretty fly for a light guy. When he's not saving humanity with his words or making music with his mouth, you can find him at your mama's mama's house drinking her fine liquors. He believes the children are our future and is waiting to find out if he is the 2nd most interesting man in the world.

    LMAO @ Much better than Crispus, which by all accounts means, “he who gets shot first”.
    you are so wrong for that. lol!!

    • http://nianaturally.blogspot.com N.I.A. naturally

      @N.I.A. naturally,
      the free advertisement and getting black people talking are probably the 2 best things that came out of this. Black businesses get a bad rap from many black people, so showing successful black businesses is a great take away from BiA2. And seeing these black businesses could possibly be an impetus for others who want to start their own business or non-profit organization. And even though I didn’t give a thorough twitter review of the Harlem Children’s Zone(sorry PJ), I definitely enjoyed all of the segments about education.

      And all you have to do is log on to twitter to see how much black folk are talking about this. If anything, this has definitely brought a lot of us together to talk about something other than hip-hop and Michael Jackson

  • http://truthmerchants.com JR

    “Got black people talking and congregating, without a DJ present” …

    So true! Even though the program didn’t get the highest of marks from the African American community, at least we got together on blogs, twitter and chat rooms to have intelligent discourse about it.

    If nothing else there’s tremendous value in that. And it didn’t take anyone’s “nana” dying to make it happen…

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      @JR, I agree. I think I have been pretty hard on the reporting but the truth is I didn’t expect it to be any better than it already was lol. Maybe the root of the problem is there’s nowhere else that would really look at our issues, except maybe PBS? Definitely not BET and I am doubtful about TV One too…

      • http://verysmartbrothas.com The Champ

        @Liz,

        its funny, out of the three people i think would do the most in-depth and thorough coverage, two of them (ken burns and david simon) are white.

      • http://nianaturally.blogspot.com N.I.A. naturally

        @Liz, I would love to see something like this on PBS. And I think they could do a great job at it without all of the hype and the pregame show, and all of the other things CNN did to increase their ratings. And people who don’t have cable would be able to see it.

    • http://verysmartbrothas.com Panama Jackson

      @JR, so true…it seems like in the past two weeks, what should be pretty peaceful and uplifting events are being littered with gunshots.

      just last week i saw a driveby happen while a fireman was taking a cat out of the tree.

      by the way, that totally didn’t happen.

    7) Lots of good advertising for some Black businesses

    Nobody’s talking about it really, but I kind of feel like some of these segments (MLT, Black Marriage) were nothing more than long ass paid advertisements. But Black business is just that, business, and needs customers.

    great point. i also think it’s necessary to highlight (to 2520s) that black folk are indeed entrepreneurs and are capable of having successful, meaningful (esp to the black community) businesses.

    altho nothing grinds my gears more than bad black business ppl. it infuriates me when black businesses have poor customer service and just overall poor business etiquette. but that’s besides the point Peej was making…

      @thismayconcernyou,
      idk, i think his professional story is pretty darn great. rejected by Hollywood, then decides to have his OWN studio, so he can do his OWN stuff… hiring black actors, writers, producers, directors, marketing people, PR people…and basically putting himself in a position to do more and better than House of Payne in the future. Ownership…something we should stress in the black community. How many writers have allowed Hollywood to change their stories so they can fit mainstream America? b/c we all know black people aren’t mainstream…or american (despite what CNN says). I have an example of one, but I’m sure there are more… http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=articles/news/moving_america_news/5992

      idk, we give TP a hard time b/c of his content…but right now, he is doing more for blacks in the industry than anyone else in the industry. i just pray he doesn’t cast Beyonce in anything that requires her to speak….

    Well, I didn’t see the first one (I know, I know, shame on me) and only saw a part of the second one (*ducks in case any flying books are coming my way*) but from what I did see, I do like the positive side. I saw the piece on the promise school in NY and the young black children that had test scores that met or exceeded those of their white counterparts. And how my man expanded that same theme and concept to overcoming weight in children. As much of a cliche as it may be, children are and always will be the future and it was so refreshing to see that in one of the places where racism is so overtly expressed, there was a beacon of light and hope. And it was for the physical, not just the mental.

    • http://lizburr.com Liz

      @AshleyNeicole, I REALLY liked that school story, particularly because it looks like they catch everybody as soon as the babies are born and tries to be planted in their lives from the beginning. i am a firm believer in continual reinforcement for those who are at risk. Summer programs, 6 month checkins can’t work for the long term when these people are facing their issues day in and day out. The only problem is we can’t afford to save everybody using this method you know? Maybe welfare reform could attempt to do it though…

      • http://stickwithyocat.blogspot.com/ V.E.G.

        @Liz,

        I’d love to see state level programs, funded by the federal government, that serve at-risk youth, connecting them with mentors, tutors – the whole nine. However, since America pretty much shirked it’s responsibility to the poor in ’96 when Clinton signed the bill that, in essence, ended welfare, I fear that won’t be the case and that state’s, local organizations and well-meaning individuals will have to continue to do what they can.

        • http://lizburr.com Liz

          @V.E.G., yeah you’re right Bill pretty much screwed us :-

          welfare isn’t completely over tho right? I’m pretty sure I have fam on welfare now. i remember everybody was mad and panicked when Bill cut it short back then, though.

          *sigh*

          i hate how this series always makes me feel helpless!

          • http://stickwithyocat.blogspot.com/ V.E.G.

            @Liz,

            I was working for a think tank about five years after the bill was passed and we did a lot of research on what happened to folks after the reform. My memory is rusty but there are subsidies – food stamps, housing credits, transportation subsidies, education assistance, child care assistance, etc. But the days of collecting a check while sitting at home are gone. And the amount you get in subsidies, particularly food stamps, are limited and there is now a cut off point for receiving aid.

            In theory, this all sounds good. But, in practice, a lot of folks have no skills, can’t find viable work and aren’t receiving any services.

    • Gemmie’s Got A Tan

      @AshleyNeicole,

      somehow i missed this comment…. anyhoo…

      i TOO loved the harlem children’s zone. in fact, that segment as well as the capitol prep school segment were my favorite pieces of BiA2–and the only 2 segments i felt were the most compelling as it relates to solving issues that plague the black community (i.e. access to education).

      and i too appreciated Canada’s tackling of obesity thru nutrition education!!! learning the importance of nutrition at a young age is soooooo crucial and necessary since blacks suffer from so many disease that can be PREVENTED simply by establishing healthy eating habits early in life.

      • Ms. T

        @Gemmie’s Got A Tan,

        Gemmie I agree, I loved the segment about Harlem Children Zone. I just hope that these children recognize these changes as a way of life and not just something they are doing to get a free trip to Disney World.
        I also feel that we have been discussing nutrition in school for years and I believe Physical Education programs/classes were created to educate us about exercise and nutrition. However, as a child, I ate what my grandmother cooked, and my parents never exercised so it was not instilled in me to exercise. Until adults/ parents become conscious of this problem and implement healthy eating in the home at an early age, obesity will continue to be a problem.

    I spit soda on my screen at the Cripus reference. I have to give you credit for fitting Beyonce and the Boston Massacre into the same post, as well as using Beyonce as multiple parts of speech.

    A little dap for that.

      @Scott Hanselman,

      You kinda rock my socks a lil. As a rite of passage on VS, you need a nickname. I’ll think on it. I aint did this in a minute but I shall give you a tour of VSB.

      To the left is “The Corner”. It is where the foolish go to reside. Permanent residents include: Aif Wonder, WuDaMan, Overit. I am interim CEO until Goodeness returns. On the right is the Prayer Cubicle. It has cobwebs on it b/c Imam Overit & Deacon PBG have neglected it. The computer we use to email Jesus, Allah & Vishnu crashed last month.

      Finally, is the “SAT DOWN” Corner. If you get sent there, it means you’ve said something side-eye worthy. You will be awarded a “FOOL SADDOWN” gift basket if sent there.

      This concludes your tour of the VerySmartLand. Please leave a tip.
