Wait What?: Stacey Dash Says “Get Rid” of BET and Black History Month

Stacey Dash tried desperately to dismiss the #OscarsSoWhite controversy by claiming: “We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black,” she continued. “If it were the other way around, we’d be up in arms. It’s a double standard. There shouldn’t be a black history month. We’re Americans, period.” Dash then threw Morgan Freeman into the mix by dredging up a similar statement the

Here We Go Again: Taye Diggs Rejects Labeling Son As “Black,” Prefers “Mixed”

African American actor Taye Diggs has a 6 year-old son with ex-wife Idina Menzel who is of Eastern European and Jewish descent. Diggs recently said in an interview with theGrio that he does not like to label his son as black but prefers calling him “mixed.” “When you [describe biracial kids as black], you risk disrespecting that one half of who you are and that’s my fear. I don’t want my son to be in a situation where he calls himself black and everyone thinks he has a black mom and a black dad, and then they see a white mother,

Obama Gets Black (Again!) With the Pop Off!

Remember when Obama reminded everyone he’s not just a POTUS but a BLACK POTUS and shut down a heckler that interrupted his speech at a White House event honoring LGBT Pride Month in June, by declaring, “Listen you’re in my house … it’s not respectful,” and then requesting that the person be removed. And remember that same month when he eulogized the Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney, who was murdered in the racially motivated mass-shooting of a prayer group at a black church  in Charleston South Carolina, and broke out in spiritual song with “Amazing Grace.” Well, Obama dun did it

Video of University of Cincinnati Police Shooting Sam Dubose “Is Not Good,” Police Chief Blackwell Says

In the wake of Sandra Bland’s death while in police custody, and all of the conspiracy theories surrounding it -the edited dashcam video without a timecode, the mugshot believed to be taken after her death, the reality of how a nearly 6 foot women can hang herself from a 5ft. partition, the public awaits an indictment for the murder of 43 year-old Sam Dubose, who was stopped by University of Cincinnati officer Ray Tensing during a traffic stop last week and subsequently shot in the head. Tensing’s body camera video has yet to be released, and the city of Cincinnati

Sandra Bland Dashcam Video Arrest Appears To Be Edited -Ava DuVernay Agrees

Video footage of the arrest of Sandra Bland, the 28-year-old woman who was pulled over by a state trooper  in Waller County, TX on July 10, and later died in a jail cell, has finally been released -and it’s a doozy! Not only does the state trooper’s dashcam video capture the trooper threatening Bland by saying “I will light you up!” as he points a stun gun at her. But the video also shows that the state trooper did not seem to be in harm’s way when he tried to physically remove Bland from the car, slam her to the

Comedian George Lopez on Donald Trump -‘If He Wins, He Won’t Have To Worry About Immigration, We’ll All Go Back!’

Comedian George Lopez gives more than his two cents on Donald Trump’s recent comments about Mexican Immigrants in this awesome video. In fact, he’s dropping some million dollar gems saying: “Those comments are vile in any civilized society, but there is a freedom of speech” “He’s punking all the dudes …he already called Jeb Bush’s old lady out…she must not have an internet connection in her house because she’d be like, “that fool said what about me?” “There’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected.” “Trump in 2016 -if he wins, he won’t have to worry about
