The people’s champ, Sen. Bernie Sanders, isn’t a stranger to rap; he’s name-checked Jay-Z and kicks it with Run the Jewels rapper-turned-unlikely National Rifle Association pitchman Killer Mike. And now the liberal politician has retweeted the empress of now and snatcher of hip-hop fitteds: Cardi B.
I’m a Netflix black-movie connoisseur. I’ve not been shy about the fact that if a movie exists and has lots of black people in it, there’s a better-than-99 percent chance that I’ll watch it, no matter what. They don’t even have to speak English. I may not make it all the way through—some movies are just that bad—but I…
Former FBI Director James Comey is a thot. He went from being head of the principal federal law enforcement agency to backing it up and dropping it low in the 2016 presidential election, to shilling his book of White House secrets and groupie tales on late-night talk shows.

In less than a month, you can have Black Panther all the time—which is reason enough to call in sick May 8 (a Tuesday, so start sniffling on Monday to really sell it). And the bonus features that Marvel is packing into its history-making film promise viewers even more of the wonders of Wakanda.
Eric Holder didn’t announce his candidacy for president in 2020 this morning, and he didn’t need to. His words at the National Action Network Convention in New York City pretty much suggest that he likely will.
Older women in my family have no clue that Taylor Swift decided to butcher Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September.” But if they did pay attention to the internet and social media and cared to make a video of their reactions, it would go something like this:
I could dance around what makes this underwear unique, but it’s easier to just say it: It has a separate compartment for your penis to keep it away from your balls. It sounds a little ridiculous, but as the weather starts to warm up, it couldl certainly keep you out of some, uh, sticky situations. Try out a three-pack…

This week, news broke that the district attorney of Philadelphia wants to grant Meek Mill, née Robert Rihmeek Williams, a new trial, but Judge Genece E. Brinkley put his status on ice until the next hearing in June.
Gatorade is the quintessential American sports drink. Or at least it pays to be—you’d be hard-pressed not to see its contents being poured over the head of any winning coach in a well-tread “surprise” splash. Also, it’s a great remedy for a hangover.
On Tuesday evening, A Wrinkle in Time and New Gods director Ava DuVernay took to Twitter with a major Star Wars announcement, though it wasn’t about herself. For the first time in the franchise’s history, a black woman will direct a significant portion of a Star Wars film. Her name is Victoria Mahoney; remember it.
A University of North Texas dining hall employee will now be standing in the unemployment line after labeling a black student’s receipt with the n-word. Chelsea Shaw posted the receipt she received from the campus’s Krispy Krunchy Chicken to Twitter:
