TIME magazine is out with its list of the "100 Most Influential People in the World". Among the black faces: Oprah, Chris Rock, Barack Obama and Tyler Perry.

Fair enough.

But it got us thinking: whom would you consider the most -- and, for that matter, least -- influential black folks in the world?

As for us, we'll stick with Oprah for most influential. (Her qualifications needn't be repeated here.)

And for least influential ... how about Marla Gibbs? A lovely woman to be sure, but not much influencing happening there.

Your turn. Who's on your list?
