This time it's up to Alfonso Ribeiro AKA Carlton to tell his side of the story.

What would the end of the year be without a "top posts of the year" entry? It just won't be satisfying, IMHO; can't welcome the new without first acknowledging the highlights from the past.

Another day, another web series profile; as I said already, 2011 is/was the year of the black web series, as black content creators embraced that particular form of exhibition. And I expect 2012 will see an even heavier dose of content created specifically for the web, by black producers.
