Early Friday morning, the seven-year effort by Republicans to repeal Obamacare came to a thundering end—at least for now—when Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) came through and dropped that no vote down like:
In what might be the first case of appropriation of white culture, a black man is trying to profit off of something started by white people. As soon as the Supreme Court ruled that racial slurs and derogatory symbols could be trademarked, a Mississippi man rushed to file an application with the U.S. Patent and…
There is a very easy deplorables test that one can take at home, and it goes like this: If you feel bad for the new White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci aka Scaramucci Mane, or anyone one who has been inside the Oval Office in the past five months, then you probably are a deplorable.
After two weeks of one of the most epic displays of caucasity since Starbucks put “Happy holidays” on paper cups, the World Wypipo Tournament is down to four challengers. Which one will be crowned the true champion of wypipo?
Another day, another bigot off the streets. A North Dakota woman was quickly terminated from her job after a video of her racist rant went viral across social media.
A Tennessee judge is taking back his offer to reduce the jail time of inmates who opt to get a vasectomy or birth control implant after being met with backlash and harsh criticism from health officials, prosecutors and civil rights attorneys alike.
Another day, another video showing law-enforcement officers abusing their powers against a black man—but this time the case ends with the city of Aurora, Colo., agreeing to pay $110,000 to settle a claim brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado on behalf of Darsean Kelley, who was unlawfully stopped,…

As Senate Republicans huddle in a Capitol-building closet and deliberate on how to strip people of their health care coverage through a dangerous mix of alchemy, conservative math, obfuscation and outright lies, let us remember the important part of the story of the GOP’s efforts to snatch Obamacare from millions of…
A video that captured an encounter between a Houston-area college student and a constable has now gone viral and has resulted in an internal-affairs complaint being filed against the deputy, alleging harassment, constitutional violations, excessive force and abuse of power.
White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, aka Scaramucci Mane, is a proud Italian American who at times sounds a lot like Ray Liotta from Goodfellas. I think this is not only purposeful but also plays into a stereotypical belief about tough Italian men—and I think Scaramucci likes it this way.
Occasionally, we here at The Root take time out from debating the substantive issues of the day, like whether Power is better than Game of Thrones (which is like asking if Tyler Perry’s stage play Madea Goes to the Cookout is better than Romeo and Juliet), to post something educational. Today we present a short…
A young Texas woman who ran into a church half naked and claimed that she was raped has been indicted on multiple charges related to what turned out to be a hoax.
There’s just something about the Starz TV drama Power that sticks to your ribs. It could be the beautiful cast (minus Angela—we hate her). Or the talented cameo stars (rest in peace, Charlie Murphy).

Hillary Clinton is set to release a memoir about how she lost the 2016 presidential election to a reality-television show huckster who paints his face orange. In her new book What Happened, scheduled for release in September, Clinton is expected to loosen a few of the buttons on the jacket of her pantsuit and show us…
John Boyega is one of the stars of Kathryn Bigelow’s latest film, Detroit, which focuses on the real-life tragic torturing of young black men in the Algiers Motel in Detroit in 1967. Boyega plays a young security guard who protects a grocery store from looters, and his character walks the thin and flimsy line between…
Confederate, the new show by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, sounds like hot trash. Smelly, putrid, straight-from-the-piss-drenched-dumpsters-of-1980s-Times Square trash.
