Don't Sleep on T.J. Holmes

Former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes put the politics back in BET when he landed his late night, issue-themed talk show Don't Sleep. The program was a beacon for voters to inform themselves on where both Mitt Romney and President Obama stood on the issues. On the topic of joblessness among African Americans, which ticked up one point to hit 14 percent, Holmes: "Neither [canidate] has a plan, specifically, having to do with Black unemployment."
