Oh Great! Black scholars are just getting disappointed in corporate
media foisting a non-black woman on the public as an authority on black
culture? Are you that hungry to see something, anything about black
folks on National Network TV, that you don’t question who is researching and
bringing forth the info/message? Why didn’t you black scholars question
why the network used Soledad O’Brien instead of a black woman/man?
To paraphrase the great activist/performer/ex-pat Josephine Baker from the
Lynne Whitfield SUPERB performance of the HBO MOVIE: “We wake up at different times. The IMPORTANT THING IS THAT WE DO WAKE UP.”
Ms. Moorehead should be more informed
Ms. Moorehead should be more informed before she posts her comments. Soledad O’Brian IS AFRICAN AMERICAN. This is just another example of criticism with merit. Obviously, an attempt to try to be a black intellectual.
Renelda, please get a life!
Dr. Colman, Soledad O’Brien is as African American as Barack Obama.
Her mother is Cuban, her father Irish Australian. That is NOT African
American. FYI: I would never try to be what I am Not. AND, further, thank
you for your ASTUTE OBSERVATION, “This just another example of
criticism with merit.” I know you couldn’t possibly have made a scholarly
typo, brotha. Mea culpa, mea culpa, for not writing” African American”
instead of black . She is clearly uncomfortable with African Americans.
No doubt, she was raised Cuban and Australian. And don’t be so anal,
you know EXACTLY WHAT MY POST MEANT.
To the above responders,Soledad O;Brien has herself said she is for all purposcies a Black woman.Now,what was the subject?
Dear Ms. Moorehead: With all due respect, I am not too sure who died and appointed you “the all knowing arbiter” of ALL THINGS CONSIDERED RACIALLY BLACK? I know Ms. O’Brien, personally and professionally, she has always considered herself to be proudly and outwardly, an African American woman. Whether you like it or not.
