Black, not African-American...

I was reading on Black Talent News about the consternation that NBC is going through in marketing one of its new programs.

Undercovers is a series with two Black leads.

Not two African-American leads.

Two Black leads.

Why the distinction?

Boris Kodjoe is German.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw is British.

But this upcoming NBC series is rather unique in that it is an hour-long dramatic series with two African... erm... Black leads.

Be sure to add Undercovers to your TiVo play list.

I doubt that Glenn Beck or Sarah Palin will be watching Undercovers.  But, anyway...
