Washington Post getting down to The Root of brown people


Washington Post apparently felt like they didn't offer anything black people could relate to in their publication, so to correct this they launched a new online magazine called The Root and brought in a black dude from Harvard to serve as Editor. It's funny how newspapers and big media overall feel the need to create a whole new outlet to communicate to black audiences. Well note to you big media dumb dumbs: Save your money and broaden your coverage and minds. The Editor Henry Louis Gates Jr. invites you to come be a part of what he calls a "Ground Breaking New Enterprise, and enjoy the richness of the black experience and all it's fullness" Ground breaking enterprise? God we hate the cheesy-ness. What's ground breaking about a website geared towards black people? There are many out their, they are just known unknowns. According to Gates he sees The Root as a way of recreating the role of the black newspapers that once thrived in many major cities but have largely disappeared.
