CNN Presents - Black in America
Will there be a "CNN Presents - White in America" or "CNN Presents - Hispanic in America" or "CNN Presents - Asian in America" and so on and so on?

Any thoughts?

1. That is so arrogant of them.
Like CNN knows what it's like to be black in America. It's like Paddy O'Brien trying to tell me what it's like to be French-Canadian in America.

2. It all depends
if they trot out the annoying so called black leaders and experts then it is bad. If it is a studied and useful exploration then it is good by me. And there will be a CNN presents about Hispanics and Asians and Gays and farmers and hip hop so on and so forth. They do their little presents things on many subjects.

3. CNN is a notoriously racist network.
They've got nothing legitimate to say on the subject of race.

4. CNN is doing what CNN does, setting up the in/out, back/forth, salt/pepper smackdown...

Where Foxnews makes no such other claims of "fair & balanced" being a republican party propaganda news outlet; CNN actually pretends they are. They've identified a few key areas of contention, and they intend to play them like strings on a fiddle.
