November 13, 2011 was a historical day for Blacks in tech as CNN's Black In America 4: The New Promised Land: Silicon Valley aired.  The documentary followed eight entrepreneurs from around the country who relocated to Silicon Valley in the summer to launch their Web tech start-ups as part of the NewME Accelerator Program.
	The documentary alone will not create a 100% meritocracy in Silicon Valley but has sparked discussion that didn't exist about Black Web tech start-ups. Kloudco founder Hank Williams  did an interesting analyst in his "Tech Industry Silence is Deafening on #BlackInAmerica"  post. Only three people from Rob Schoble's Influential Tech Industry list joined the discussion. With #BlackInAmerica being a trending topic the night of the doc’s premier, it’s not likely these tech savvy people missed it. As a note, popular start-up publication, TechCrunch, which routinely reports on the demo days and does extensive profiles of the other accelerator participants, didn't mention it at all. In response, here’s my 5-point recap. —Hajj Flemings
