Many blacks are having trouble swallowing the marketing concept of PowerMaster, the new high-alcohol malt liquor that's targeting minorities.Taking a few minutes from his stroll through Mondawmin Mall yesterday afternoon, Al Watson, 48, said: "I think it's wrong. We have enough problems as it is now."The General Motors worker continued, "I think they're taking advantage of blacks. If you're going to market, then market it whole, not just for blacks."PowerMaster is made by G. Heileman Brewing Co. of Wisconsin, at its plant in Halethorpe that also makes Colt 45. The new malt liquor is scheduled for promotion in July.

Some rap records make you dance, and some make you think. But the best ones do both.That point may seem almost too obvious to bother making, but it's an important consideration when reviewing an album like Public Enemy's new "Apocalypse 91: The Enemy Strikes Black" (Def Jam/Columbia 47374, arriving in record stores today). Because as tempting as it is to praise P.E. for its point of view, which this time focuses on everything from malt liquor sales to slavery, what the group has to say doesn't matter quite as much as how it sounds.

He lined up at fullback, but from the moment he set foot in training camp in 1961, Jerry Hill understood his role with the Colts. "I was John Unitas' bodyguard," he said. For nine years, Hill policed the Baltimore backfield, protecting Unitas from defenders who thundered in to sack No. 19 or whoever was quarterbacking the Colts. Others got the glory; Hill got the satisfaction of a job well done. Did Unitas critique his blocking? "He would if I missed one," Hill said. Which wasn't often.

WASHINGTON -- When Rodney Carr walks through his Brooklyn neighborhood this fall, he's likely to spot not only the usual malt liquor billboards, but also new advertisements encouraging him to get his blood pressure checked.Mr. Carr welcomes the new message."It would be better than seeing the tiger up there and the 800 label," said Mr. Carr, referring to symbols on a malt liquor ad. "Just to see something that is positive is much better than seeing a bottle. A lot of that [health] information is not readily available to our people."

The Stroh Brewery Co. announced yesterday that it has completed its acquisition of the hobbling G. Heileman Brewing Co. in an estimated $290 million merger that will give the combined company control over about 10 percent of the U.S. beer market.The deal, announced in February, is expected to reinforce Stroh's position as the nation's No. 4 beer maker in a flat industry, giving the Detroit-based company a broader portfolio of national and regional brand-name beers, and what it hopes is an opportunity to cut costs and expand its distribution network and international sales.
