#TavisWeeps because in 19 minutes President @BarackObama inspired more deep conversation about race than Smiley has his whole career. #J4TM

#TavisWeeps because Wells Fargo and Wal-Mart stopped bankrolling his anti-poverty hustle. Now he has to wait for Fox to call.

#TavisWeeps because his Poverty Pimpin' Tour came to a screeching halt when his Wells Fargo Wagon caught a flat tire.

#TavisWeeps because only time Privileged MSM thinks he's worthy and is called on, is to bash PBO.

It goes on and on, Cali.. but, you get the pic. Pres Obama gives a compelling talk on the Trayvon Martin verdict and racism and the corporatemedia bring in an Obama hater. tavis' claim to fame.

As you say.. the important thing is how it affected so many African American People who don't have an bitter sour agenda like tavis smiley.. including Trayvon Martin's parents.

Okay, just a couple more..
