5114: Playing The Game.

Game Over In A MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• Mixing pistols and pickup games will cost The Game 60 days in jail. The rapper pleaded no contest to charges that he pointed a gun at another player during a basketball game last year. So now The Game is facing a timeout—behind bars.

• A Black History Month celebration has led to a discrimination lawsuit against the ABC network. A Black engineer displayed a page from The New York Post about Black History Month at his workstation in 2004. The worker claims a supervisor told him to take it down and declared, “Black History Month should be changed to White Aryan Nation Month.” The worker also said he later saw a Black doll in a noose at the workplace. Sounds like the makings for a reality TV show.

• General Motors reported a $38.7 billion loss for 2007. Plus, the company is offering buyouts to 74,000 employees. So some workers may be celebrating Black History Month in a special way.
