Many of you may have seen the CNN specials called “Black in America” and “Black in America 2” which both aired last year. There has been much debate about the accuracy of how CNN chose to portray blackness in America. I’m calling this episode of “Keepn’ it Real wit Kimp” the homework show because I want you to refresh yourselves by visiting cnn.com and view excerpts from the show as well as the commentary from the various personalities on the site. Once you’ve done that tune into the show for follow up and discussion. Did CNN accurately depict what it means to be black in America? What perspective did CNN report from? What did CNN omit? What should CNN have included? What does it mean to be black in America to you? Submit your comments to keepnitrealwitkimp@gmail.com or call in with your comments to (347) 826-9214. And as always, my only request is that, like the name of the show says; you keep it real.
