Coretta, Betty and Rita Get Props for Putting Up With Historical Groupon Peens

Yeah, I said it. YOLO! Last night was Lifetime’s movie Betty and Coretta about Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King, wives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. They were played by Mary J. Blige (who also executive produced) and Angela Bassett. Y’all know Angela can act so good she’d play you and me better […]

Nathaniel Alexander: Black History Legend

Luvvie’s Note: As you all know, Black History Month is more than half over. And I haven’t done my share of educating the masses about the history of us colored folks. Helping me out today is Scholar in Ratchetness, Brokey McPoverty. She’s the goofy behind the “Little Known Black History Facts” Tumblr. I asked Professor […]

Happy MLK Day

I live-tweeted the Golden Globe awards, but in the absence of such overt foolery as I’m accustomed, it was boring. No one had a nip slip. No one ambushed the stage for a Kayne movement. Everyone was pretty well-behaved (in spite of the fact that 78% of those celebrities were TANKED! Clearly they serve good […]

Clinton’s a Sigma, Jesus is an Alpha (and Omega)

Disclaimer: I am not, or have I ever been affiliated with a Greek-organization (unless IG Phi IG is one. But our charter wasn’t approved. We even had colors picked out and everything! We repped Houndstooth. *shakes fists*). I am not a hater of fraternities & sororities, nor have I ever tried to pledge one and […]

Twitter: The World’s Stage

All the world’s a stage. Has never rang true more than now. Twitter has given everyone a voice that they didn’t know they wanted or needed, and an audience. It’s like an ePulpit, where everyone can give a sermon, as long as it’s 140 characters or less. From Ashton Kutcher to your favorite butcher (yes […]

Inauguration Ball was a HOOT

I was watching the Neighborhood Inauguration ball, and it was a GOOD TIME, even through the TV. The star power was ridiculous! But y’all know I got some things to say. The GREAT *My President has rhythm. Y’all saw him and Shelly (yes, we have given her a nickname) getting down *Who else was cheesing […]

MLK Day in DC

Hey folks. After a 15 hour trip, I made it to DC on Friday night. I’ve had a BALL with my ePosse (PBG and NaturallyAlise), but we have seen some ish that has traumatized us. Some of the shenanigans I’ve witnessed while in DC would NOT make MLK proud on his day or any other. […]

Celebration Playlist

I am loving the positivity that is omnipresent with our new President-Elect Barack Obama. I swear I woke up on November 5th and the world was clearer and sunnier. My allergies miraculously cleared up and my terrible cold seemed to have subsided. Birds were singing, and I think people were just skipping lightly down the […]

Celebrate Good Times for Obama!

I was on YBF.com a couple of days ago, and she put a list up of ways for Black folks to celebrate if Obama wins to keep folks from getting nervous, at least for the first few days. I already broke ALL them rules and it has only been an hour and a half. 1. […]

YES, WE DID!!!!!!

“Rosa Parks sat, so Martin could walk. Martin walked, so Obama could run. Obama is running so we can fly!” At 10pm on November 4th, 2008, history was made when Barack Obama became the first ever African American President Elect of the United States. Words cannot express how I feel right now. Joy isn’t strong […]
