W. Kamau Bell - After KKK, Will CNN United Shades Look At Oakland? W. Kamau Bell has hit A-list celebrity status after the first episode of his new show United Shades of America looked at and met up with the KKK. The response has been remarkable with Bell and the show hitting Twitter trends and Google Trends barometer too. With all of this what is next? Oakland? Last year, Bell was the focus of a racist incident at the Elwood Cafe in Berkeley and near the Oakland and Berkeley broader. One of the clerks mistook him as a homeless black man talking to a group of white customers, when he had came up to meet his wife and their friends. The result was a blog post by Bell and a locally talked about town hall event. But it's clear Bell didn't stop there. Most recently Bell had a town hall talk with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. Given Oakland's recent spate of racial profiling incidents and affordable housing problems, it did not go well for the Mayor. (Who is my god sister in the interest of full disclosure.). But will Bell air that? Does Bell plan to turn his new television lens on Oakland and the SF Bay Area? Stay tuned.
