A few days ago, I was informed that a big brouhaha had erupted between author and media host Tavis Smiley and well, just about every other prominent leader in Black America. Just in time for his new and improved and non State of the Black Union convention in Chicago. Is this kind of thing of any benefit to the African American community? Is it a grasp for publicity and/or an expression of sour grapes? We’ll be talking about it after hot topics next Thursday!!!
