CNN's "Black In America"

So I finally gained access to a TV and was able to watch the CNN special "Black In America." I've been hearing a lot about the special via people's Facebook status' and word of mouth and a lot of it was along the lines of: "CNN/ Soledad sucks", "the show didn't talk about anything we didn't already know" and that "the show was really superficial/ surface level". However, I actually want to commend CNN for even taking the time to try to share with the world the plight of Blacks in America. I mean...it wasn't even February! Give CNN and Soledad a break. If you are a Black person in America, did you really think a TV special was going to be able to tell you something you didn't already know about being Black in America??? The show was obviously meant to inform the "others" about being Black in America and I think it did just that and nothing more. You can't bombard the "others" with information without them getting defensive anyway. So I think that for all the people that had the problem with the special, they should probably focus less of their energy on complaining about what CNN and Soledad did or did not do and work on eradicating the problems that continue to harm the Black community or work on creating their own special that will be even better. And that's all I have to say...
