USA Today “race-themed” headline fail. Because black still = other.

USA Today put its foot way deep in its mouth today with a tone-deaf headline (which has since been changed):

“’Holiday’ Nearly Beat ‘Thor’ as Race-Themed Films Soar”

Best-Man-Holiday-Full-Trailer

Because love, when it has to do with black folks, isn’t a universal theme. Funny, I don’t recall anyone saying “Love Actually” was a white-themed film.
