Honestly, my opinion of Aly Raisman has increased tenfold since 2016. Not that I thought she was horrible. I did think she was hogging Simone’s spotlight a bit.
Hey, y’all! The National Museum of African-American History and Culture is attempting to put together a definitive anthology of hip-hop and it needs our help to do it (if we are inclined to help).
I am sure that Ghana is beautiful. But, ummm...who is my, I mean our, gracious host? Anyone know?
So, I just joined a gym and besides the swimming workout classes, I want to try the Barre class as well. Has anyone ever done a barre (read: ballet-like) class? Do I need to buy some ballet slippers like I wore when I was a kid?
A Nepalese woman had enough of British tourists trying to bargain for lower prices of her goods. She chases (and throws rocks!) at a British tourist and her son simultaneously chastising them for having enough money to hike in Nepal, but not enough to pay 150 rupees (1 British pound) for tea.

It’s the day of Beyonce’s birth and her family and friends celebrated by getting in formation.
I’m on vacation all week, so here’s some more funny!

This is just me being fancy, y’all. I’m just going to Tahiti. Well, more specifically, Moorea.

Gabrielle Douglas is still hustling like a pro out here in these streets. Her agent is a bit better at it than Simone’s in some respects (she also debuted a makeup kit via Beauty Bakery this year).
I’m saying, though. The Obamas have been living my dream life. Vacationing in the Carribbean with their billionaire friends; spending only the required amount of time in NYC to sign a massive book deal; and now, ironically, hanging out in Moorea. I say ironically because I am actually planning a vacation to Moorea in…
I’m here for this diversity in Black movies. We got Hidden Figures, Get Out, and now we have a Black superhero movie.
I don’t know who these kids are, but this is the sweetest thing. Hope y’all are taking care of yourselves. Happy Wednesday!
Our second of three New Edition (NE) debates this week. Today, we debate the best NE music video and allow for some extra credit, if you so choose.
In honor of BET’s surprisingly good New Edition mini-series, throughout the week we will be debating all things New Edition (okay, we will try to do this anyway). First up, we will incite further jealousy and hurt feelings within this mega group by determining once and for all which New Edition solo effort was the…
