Richard Spencer—a white nationalist who participated in the Charlottesville, Va., rally in August that led to deadly violence—is scheduled to give a speech at the University of Florida on Thursday, and in anticipation of the event, Florida Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency.
We know that “the truth” is a relative concept in the Trump White House, so no one was surprised when President von FuckFace (kudos, Stephen A. Crockett Jr.) declared that Obamacare was “finished,” “dead” and “gone” Monday.
I was 13 years old the first time I shoplifted. My sister, at 15, was my lookout.
As colorful as comics are, they have not always been kind to people of color. Even though Stan Lee and Marvel were bold enough to create the X-Men in reaction to the civil rights movement, not everyone else was so enlightened or has been so enlightened since (see #DonaldforSpiderman).
Contrary to popular belief, I do not wake up every morning trying to figure out how to attack my beloved Caucasian brothers. I only wish them peace and prosperity. In fact, every day I wake up before sunrise and whisper a plea to the Most High (Snoop Dog) for a special favor:

While I was excited to attend the first HBCU—catch this fade if you disagree—upon first look 10 years ago, there was nothing remotely spectacular about the campus.

Imagine minding your own business, walking home from school, only to have a bunch of older kids who should know better hurl racial slurs at you?
Stop. Before you object to my use of the word “slave,” let us be clear: I do not mean “slave” in the way you are thinking.
On Saturday the German soccer club Hertha Berlin took a knee in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick and other U.S. athletes who have used the gesture to protest racial injustice.

1. The screen at the 0:00 mark right before the trailer started. I know black screens are standard before a film starts and after it ends, but this black screen was an extra, deeper black. A Maya and Amiri at the Schomburg black. I saw this black and immediately felt compelled to take a shot of Henny. (AND I HATE…
