What's It All About? As host, creator and executive producer Grier explains, "Chocolate News" is "your only source for pure, uncut realness from an Afrocentric perspective. Be it sports, politics or human interest, as long as there is a brother involved, we will kick it to you raw." This urban-edged spoof of newsmagazine series touches on subjects like biracial conjoined twins, gangsta rappers helping the No Child Left Behind initiative and how the rock band KISS was originally black. Each episode includes an editorial segment called "Can I Flow?" in which Grier sounds off on a topic.
