Inside CNET Labs 50: It 'doesn't' matter if you're black or white

Michael Jackson, iPhones, and Vietnam.

Yep, I had this poster on my wall as a kid, so eff the haters. Sony Music Entertainment

First up, Dong and I share of memories of the King of Pop. If you've had enough MJ for the last few weeks, then I suggest skipping 20 minutes into the episode as we don't really hold back on our unabashed adulation of the man.

Afterward, it gets all racial up in this piece as we discuss Dong's current obsession with black jokes and why everyone hates them. Also, since he's been in Vietnam for three weeks, he catches us up a bit on the goings on there.

BTW, yes I did say "teef," not teeth.
