The Friday Fives

1. Who is your favorite black actor Mos Def and Don Cheadle are currently tied in my calculations.

2. Who is your favorite black politician Well, the who isn't is a better list: Former Colorado Lt. Governor Joe Rogers. He can't compare to US. Rep. John Lewis.

3. What do you think about Al Sharpton? Loud mouthed, headline grabber. Although during his brief run for president, he had some powerful things to say and perhaps helped guide the national political conversation to include frank discussions of racism, classism and poverty. That said, he would be a terrible elected official.

4. What black actor is over-rated? Some folks think Denzel Washington is overrated. He does tend to play the same character over and over again. But so does Pacino. So does Dennis Hopper. That isn't a crime. I think the overrated black actor award goes to Whoppie Goldberg. An Oscar? Oscar? For Ghost? Gimme a break.

5. What are your thoughts on the Bill Cosby comments controversy? Wow, Kevin, that is an old link. I don't have too many thoughtson the controversy, as it has certainly died down. I love Ray Suarez though. He used to be on NPR on Talk of the Nation. He rocks. Here is McGruder's take on Cosby.
