black nerds unite!

Has anyone visited this site: http://blackprof.com/ ?

Edit:
Are there any  good sites or blogs dedicated to black or minorities issues and perspectives in academia that aren't filled with self-hating idiots?

let's face it
The site is called Black Profs. I assume that's professionals. If we are talking blacks in americkkkan corporate atmospheres, of course they will be self hating. Hello! I think the time is now and the place is here, to assemble a group of black people who are not all about drama and hatred of self and reflections of self. I mean we aint gotta old e hands and sing kooom bi yah (sp?) but you get the jist.

Re: let's face it
Actually, the "prof" stands for professors.

Anyway, I started reading this site when the Duke case broke, and the bloggers seemed to have their heads on straight. Dunno what happened.

Re: let's face it
I'm not sure, the posts themselves were intriguing, but I hate having to shift through too many silly comments. Maybe it was just the topics being discussed...

Re: let's face it
I just read a few of them now and yeah, I can definitely see why the site would be a turn off, not to mention that the Dungy post had me scratching my head quite a bit.

I wish I could help you in your search but the only blogs I can think of his Marc Lamont Hill's jawn (which you probably already knew about) and blac(k)demic (sp?) who stopped posting late last year.

I know of a few places.

http://blackademics.org/
http://www.jbhe.com/index.html <-- I don't think they have a forum though.

There were a few individual bloggers I knew of. But they don't seem to post that often anymore.

Just a note. There are two blackademics (.org and .com). One is an individual who stoped posting a while ago, the other is the still posting group.
Good luck finding something decent.

(LOL @ nerd crushes)
