From The Root: Apparently black folks are terribly interesting.
I mean, everything we do is fascinating. The way we vote. The way we dance. The way we apparently don't say "muthaf---er" when we're asking for a glass of iced tea. We're just so fascinating. So when black Americans started using the social media service Twitter, a slew of articles came down the pike.
