Bloggers' Roundtable: Why Is It Cool to 'Act Black'?

This week, our bloggers tackle false claims of street credibility, criticism of New Mexico governor Bill Richardson for endorsing Barack Obama, and new legislation in Maryland that allows police to collect DNA from suspects.

Joining in the conversation are Carmen Dixon of All About Race; Jozen Cummings of Broke Thoughts; and Avery Tooley of Stereo Describes My Scenario.
