On today's bloggers' roundtable: The NAACP names its youngest president in the group's 99-year history; California repeals a ban on same-sex marriage; and a black father whose son was allegedly gunned down by an illegal immigrant gang member, calls for changes in the nation's immigration policy.

Farai Chideya talks with our panel of bloggers to see how those stories are reverberating online.

Joining in the conversation are Amani Channel of My Urban Report; Shawn Williams of Dallas South; and Shaun King, who blogs at Shaun in the City.
