Gotta love Al. He's America's crazy old uncle, black version. Biden is the white version. Brothers of a different mother. Maybe Biden will run in 2016... and put Al on the ticket! Now that would be awesome. Think of the laughs

drew it helped him with who? it helped him keep a camera in his face. it helped him take jesse place as the black go to guy. but that is my point. why? it's like they want all blacks to look as petty as him.

it is the media's #1 job to get ratings so I get that ignorance, and conflict sell. it's just too bad that ultimately that's the only message that gets out on the black end of things.

People who want to be in the public eye, want our attention, want people to listen to them, and for whatever reason can GET all of that are our leaders.
