Hey Pooka Family! Hope all is well and everyone is enjoying their summer!
Did anybody see the CNN special, "Black in America" which aired July 23 & 24th? I'm curious as to what other people thought about it? I watched a little of both segments (the Black Woman and the Black Man) and to be quite honest, I was a little disappointed with the program. I guess I expected more.more insight to the psychological and socio-economic factors that drive some people to prosperity and others to a lack of goals and aspirations. Also, I expected the program to provide more information, more analysis, and more diverse perspectives on the issue. I thought the program fell short by only touching on aspects of race, prosperity and poverty of which we already know i.e. the aspects that are intuitive and consistently spun in the media.
What do you think?
