This is America: Donald Glover’s Video is a Gripping Read

In times of great crisis, we create great art. Donald Glover’s video for his latest single This is America is great art. It’s not because it’s trying to be overly subtle to where only art connoisseurs can defuse the meaning. It’s that it trusts us to pick up what it’s …

About the Weary Weaponizing of White Women Tears

Picture it: a white woman feels challenged or uncomfortable about something a Black person said or did. Instead of using her words, she cries. Instantly, no matter what the initial catalyst of the situation is, she ends up being appeased, pacified and pampered. Lawd knows we’ve all seen virtual white …

Beychella is Proof That Beyoncé is the Greatest Performer Alive. I’m Not Arguing

Beyoncé Giselle of House Knowles. First of her name. Snatcher of Edges. Killer of Stages. Exemplar of Excellence. Citizen of Creole Wonderland. Legendary Black Girl. Wakandan Council President.

About Mo’Nique, Pay Inequality and Her Asking Us to Boycott Netflix

A lot of people do not like Mo’Nique. I’m not a huge fan myself, being one of those who falls in the “skinny bitches” category that she made a comedy career out of roasting. But I respect her longevity in the humor game, and tip my hat to the OG. …

Saying Goodbye to Olenna Tyrell, My Game of Thrones Mentor: A Fitting Obituary

The Pope Meeting The Trumps is All Of Us

This international tour that Cantaloupe Caillou is on will not stop providing moments of memes. It will not stop reminding us that we (well, yall. I know who I voted for) have elected Sunburned Stalin to represent us all on the global stage and it is the biggest mistake ever …

Because I am Obsessed with “Get Out”

This post is long overdue because I first saw Jordan Peele’s new film Get Out over a month ago. Yes, I said “first” because I did something I usually don’t: I went to the theater again to see a movie. TWICE in one month. That is how obsessed I am …

Dear Pepsi, That Ad was a Gold in the Fail Olympics

I gotta say that sometimes, I’m impressed by how people fail so spectacularly. Pepsi is the latest inductee into the FAIL Hall of Fame. I don’t think we’ve fully forgiven them since they set Michael Jackson’s hair on fire back in 1984. We just knew they didn’t curl allaway over. …

Kellyanne Conway Gotta Get Her Feet Off That Couch

Let me tell you something. The entire Trump administration must be made up of people who were raised by savages. Every week, they do some shit that is unbecoming of what people do when they are raised with sense as a core value and guiding principle. Latest is the picture …
