A BET show recently hosted a roundtable featuring Sen. Barack Obama and journalist Soledad O'Brien taking about the light versus dark-skinned debate. Plus, nine black teens allegedly attack a white woman after dragging her off a bus. Was it a hate crime?

Joining in the debate are bloggers Lauren Williams of Stereohyped, Trey Ellis of The Huffington Post and Duane Brayboy of Black Informant.
