SEN. BARACK OBAMA REACHES OUT TO S. CAROLINA VOTERS
Barack Obama is reaching out to voters in S. Carolina voters via one-minute radio ads. The spots are targeted to stations with Black listeners. Sen. Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton are competing for Black voters in S. Carolina who make up half of the voters in the state.

Obama’s advisers say their biggest challenge is introducing him to voters who certainly know who Clinton is, but may not know much about Obama or even that he is black.

Question: Who doesn’t know that Senator Barack Obama is Black?

BEYONCE TAKES A TUMBLE DURING ORLANDO CONCERT

by A.man.I

GrantGrant92 just posted this video on YouTube from Beyonce’s concert in Orlando Florida last night. He says:

She was Amazing, Even after taking a Suicidal stage dive!!!

I’d offer my personal thoughts, but can’t put it any better than RhymesWithSnitch:

This is what you’re supposed to do when you fall down on stage. Get your ass right back up and act like nothing happened!

It had to hurt.

by A.man.I

You’ve been sleepin’ if you haven’t seen Kiri Davis’ documentary “A Girl Like Me.”  She’s received plenty of mainstream attention from her video that examines self image issues of black youth.  The video is truly eye opening. ”A Girl Like Me” took top honors in Cosmo Girl’s Take Action Hollywood Film Contest.  Great job Kiri!
