“Local barbershop sets the tone for presidential election!”

Southern Blacks Are Split on Clinton vs. Obama”, this was the headline of an article that appeared today on the New York Times website.  Pretty straight forward article, although it doesn’t actually give any new info or data (slow news day anyone.)  But what I found particularly hilarious was one particular line from the article:

“While the official ground game is just beginning, chatter about the two candidates — both of whom have substantial claims to African-American support — is constant on black radio shows and e-mail lists and at barbershops.”

Black radio shows, e-mail lists and barbershops  Who would have thought that the Times would be able to so succinctly break down all the forums that comprise the southern black intellectual arena?  It’s so simple! If you want to know who’ll win the black vote in the south all you have to do is head on down to your local barbershop!  Bravo mass media, Bravo…
