Recently baseball star Mark Mcgwire admitted to steroid use. Already the media is talking about forgiving him for his transgressions and commending him for coming clean...after years of speculation. Barry Bonds is still being nailed to the cross for an act in which he has yet to be found guilty. Singer Chris Brown had to postpone shows in wake of the domestic violence incident with singer Rianna...actor Charlie Sheen has already gone back in the studio taping his sitcom almost immediately after a similar domestic violence incident involving his wife where he threatned her with a knife.Just a coincidence that black celebrities have been treated differently by the public and media compared to white counterparts...or is the black community under attack? And how does the "Obama Affect"play into all of this. Has his election given cause to the new white backlash?We'll discuss this and more on the next LETS BE FRANK SHOW.
