Isaiah Washington Finds His Roots!

The Los Angeles Times reports that actor Isaiah Washington recently became a citizen of Sierra Leone as a result of DNA testing that showed that he had roots in the West African country. Washington has even started a foundation to aid Sierra Leone, contributing nearly $1 million to build a school, restore a hospital and preserve a historic British slave castle on nearby Bunce Island. Good to see that Washington is being recognized for doing something positive, and let's see how much publicity this story receives from a national standpoint.

What a role model. But it will be ignored. The white media only highlights us when we gangbang or kill somebody.
