Yesterday concluded February, and with that, the end of Black History Month. It's been a weird year. A sort of border between the Black and White community was further erected by the media. Imus and Rutgers, Jena 6, the nooses about the college campuses. The way ESPN pins black against white on issues; Barry Bonds, Pacman Jones, and while it seems necessary to take that angle of the story into consideration, over indulgence only further delineates the racial borders for which to place the blame.
One of our bloggers, Mallory Moser wrote about her experience at a Cortland State presentation. Check it out here It presented a point that is terribly ubiquitous to the college campus nation wide: we all talk about 'improving diversity' but really are stagnant in our actions. So it goes.
On a more lighthearted note, I saw Medeski Martin and Wood at the State Theatre the other night. They were incredible, expect a review coming soon from Imprint's Music editor, Julian Williams. Afterwards I headed over to the Lost Dog Cafe, to check out The Rozatones. They're a funky band, with a sultry grooving set list.
