"Black News"

Now I was actually going to put forth some effort and work on my blog today, but I couldn't come up with any topics. I'm kind of out of the loop when it comes to anything right now because I've been focusing on Rabbit. She's doing great by the way. She's a whole three months old!!!!! OK I'm sorry, I had to get the proud mommy moment out of the way, as per usual, I digress.

So I started searching news sites. I'm learning more and more we aren't getting news we are getting "infotainment". That is across the board on most news sites, it seems. It seems more so on "Black News" sites. I use this term loosely, there aren't that many, and if you do a Google search, you will find some really racist stuff meant to be "black news" and white people taking those sites seriously are legitimate information on the "black community".

I go to "Black Voices" first and to their news section. Why is the big story about Taimak from "The Last Dragon".I loved Taimak back in the day, the movie was great, but honestly is he news? Underneath him a smaller story about a black woman who is missing is featured. Now that is nice, but couldn't that be the focus considering maybe someone has seen her, and you know the mainstream media doesn't give a damn. We also have a story on Lil Wayne. Because we all need to care about what is going on in his life.

Anyway Mitrice Richardson is missing. Please go here for more information.
