The Confab -- July 2, 2010

This week on the Confab: The BET Awards and the black community's hypocritical treatment of domestic-abuse offenders. If Don Cornelius gets a pass, why can't Chris Brown? Plus, race-baiting at Elena Kagan's confirmation hearing, housekeeping headaches for Obama, and America's best black-owned bed and breakfasts. Join The Root's managing editor, Joel Dreyfuss, as he talks to staff writer Cord Jefferson, buzz editor Nsenga Burton and contributor to The Root Frank McCoy.   *Podcast production by Abdullah Rufus. *Podcast theme music by Timothy Morrison.
