Okay, I woke up this morning and realzie I am still pissed about that CNN Black in America documentary. I mean the first night really disappointed me. I guess I just had higher expectations, but I swear I will never let that happen again. I will be watching part 2 tonight. I just want to see how they will botch the story of the black man. I'm pretty sure they are only going to focus on the negative like they did last night.

Another thing that really pissed me off about last night show was the fact that they didn't really talk about the historical aspects of what is going on in Black America. If this documentary is supposed to be used to educate other races about being black in America it did a piss poor job. They barely scratch the surface of the systemic racism that exists in this country and how it came about.

Another point I want to address is that fact that so many black woman are depressed and they don't know why. They touched on it a little bit when the sista said that she was depressed, but didn't know what it was. This is something that a lot of sistas are battling, but we don't talk about it because black women are not allowed to voice their pain. I'm not on here to bash the black man. I want to focus on the black woman and the pain we suffer in silence. This really needs to be address and it wasn't addressed on last nights show.

I'm sorry if this comes off as a rant, but I had so much on my mind that I had to try and write it down as best as I could. I hope you guys can make sense of it...LOL!!! Sista is just a little angry right now.
