125th st. is crazy right now!
First it was James Brown's death, then it was the 2009 election night and now it's MIchael Jackson. What is it about Black people meeting up on 125th st? It really is a cultural landmark. It's like Black people got on the phone with each other and said, "Let's meet on 125th st. so we can celebrate, dance and mourn." It's like television producers know where to send their journalists once something with Black people happens. As global as Michael was there were no shrines left to him outside Sony Records. I hope though that the next time Black people spontaneously meet on 125th st. it'll be for good news.
