OC's African-American Problem: Gustavo's Latest "Orange County Line" for KCRW!

People who have read this infernal rag long enough know that I feel OC's most embarrassing fact of life is our embarrassingly low African-American community, and all the juvenile incidents that come with growing up sans blacks, whether it's offering fried chicken on MLK Day or having a 50% off black items sale for MLK Day or driving out a family of cops from Yorba Linda or putting on the ol' blackface. In fact, we're working on a special issue involving the subject--but before that, I did a commentary for KCRW-FM 89.9 as part of my ever-Monday "Orange County Line" commentary.

How much you wanna bet most of ustedes will fulfill my prophecy in the comments below? Enjoy!
