It was Hella Onyx: The Blackest Black History Month Ever

The Blackest and best Black History Month ever ended yesterday and I am just reveling in it’s abundant noirness. Still. It was utterly lit. Like Olympic Torch lit. Like Christmas Lights when you do too much so you keep the neighbors up all night because your house is one giant …

Let’s Talk About Chris Rock’s Oscars Opening Monologue

I did not plan on boycotting the 2016 Academy Awards but I also didn’t plan on watching it. You’re probably like “wait what?” Yes. I take “boycott” to mean I’m making a conscious decision to show that my support is not going to be added to the mix. I just …

Dear Stacey Dash, Who Knew Clueless Was a Biopic?

I have chilled on writing ex-actress and current Faux News mouthpiece Stacey Dash a sternly-worded letter for years, as I verbally chin-checked Raven-Symone. So this is overdue. Besides, so many of y’all asked me to that I was afraid that if I didn’t, you might pitch a tent on my eLawn …

Janet Hubert’s Read of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Oscar Boycott Rant is Lit

Y’all know how I feel about Aunt Viv 1.0 from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, played by Janet Hubert. She was the best. In fact, we don’t recognize Aunt Viv 2.0 around these parts. We sure in the hell do not. The Academy behind the Oscars are catching all the flack …
