Bravo. Love it!


Congratulations on being asked to write Ebony's year in review. A nice mix of stories there. You've done a great job this year with your writing. God bless.


Nice. I'm glad that you noted President Obama's remarks on gay marriage as a pivotal news story. IMO POTUS changed the game with his support.

i like the top ten list but am a little surprised that "occupy wall street" and the protests did not make it. anyone else surprised by this?


@Tavares. I guess because it started in 2011?

Occupy Wall Street (OWS) is the name given to a protest movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, located in New York City's Wall Street financial district.


Tavares: What FFF said. OWS started in late 2011 and most of the protests were in late 2011. Protesters were TIME's 2011 Person of the Year. Doesn't make much sense to recognize the movement as a 2012 event.

It's a good list, Rod. It must be a challenge to write those types of lists for news, magazines or tv when you only have so much space. I could easily write my top 20 of 2012.


It's a good list. I'm actually impressed that you chose not the rank them given them time and space you had available.

I wouldn't argue with any of your choices but am surprised that the AIDS drug (Truvada) made the list. It didn't receive a huge amount of media attention (or did I miss it?) but seeing that HIV/AIDS affects black folks the most, it would make sense here. But I disagree on how important Truvada should/would be as an anti-HIV strategy because not all people who are HIV poz have access to their meds. So why should people who are negative have access to prevent infection? But I do agree that in theory it is a breakthrough accomplishment in the battle against HIV/AIDS and one of the most significant medical advances of the year.

As always, I'm impressed that you've become one of EBONY's go-to writers, just like you were at The Advocate and other publications and television. Bravo.


Nice list.
