Everybody knows Wendell Pierce.
I don’t typically smile at crime. In fact, I typically frown at crime. Crime, bad. Who’s bad? Crime. That’s how I feel, for real.
There was a time that white men offered the local community lots of services in exchange for their tax money. They would invent things like the Snickers bar and the shoelace, they wouldn’t exist as things named Tekashi 6ix9ine, and they saved Private Ryan. Residents could borrow any white man they wanted, marry it,…

President Donald Trump has a habit of saying one thing and doing another—like that historically embarrassing moment on the Late Show With David Letterman in which Trump blasted China for threatening America’s economic greatness, only for Letterman to show that Trump’s ties were made in China:
During the president’s Thursday-morning bathroom time, in which he forces all of his assistants to talk to him through the door, the president did his usual random morning toilet tweeting, this time railing against Amazon.com.
So, some asshat thought it would be a good idea to sell on Amazon.com children’s clothing featuring the slogan “Slavery gets shit done,” prompting the online retail giant to scrub the site of the hideous items after backlash.
On Jan. 19, Netflix is going to set Twitter afire with the release of its original film Step Sisters. I remember when Drumline: A New Beat (effectively Drumline 2) came out on VH1 (and was terrible), black folks had a field day tearing it to shreds. But this shit right here? This shit right here, my nigga? I almost…
In the 16 years that I’ve lived in the Washington, D.C., area, I’ve witnessed it go from Chocolate City to Latte City. Sure, the blackness for which the city is known is still present symbolically, but ain’t nothin’ but white folks at the Brixton, living in the Ellington and hangin’ at Marvin on every other day but…
They say don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, but one Florida couple may be forgiven for doing so because this pungent present wasn’t really for them anyway.
I remember during my freshman year in college, I took a black-film class and sat through hours and hours of blaxploitation movies. From Shaft to every Melvin Van Peebles film ever made, the class was an eye-opener when it came to black movie classics. And now you’ll be able to stream those films on Amazon.com, thanks…
When Amazon.com took over Whole Foods last week, it announced that it would start immediately lowering prices at the fancy grocery chain known for its expensive organic fruits and vegetables and asparagus water, and on Monday, the company made good on that promise by slashing prices by as much as 43 percent.
This week, I am confident the only thing that mattered was that we all gained a new mantra: “Reclaiming my time.” Once again, thanks to the amazing Queen Auntie Maxine, not only do we have our new mantra and viral sensation, but we also have a whole new level of love and admiration for her. But I can’t take up too…
Even before HBO thought it was a great idea to have two white men explain how 400 years of slavery was horrible by imagining a modern-day version of it, Amazon.com had its own alternative-history series in the works.
More than a few outraged citizens turned out this weekend to protest the fact that behemoth company Amazon.com, via its lackey Dominion Virginia, is attempting to seize 50 acres of land belonging to a mostly elderly African-American Northern Virginia community that dates back to slavery.
American business history is littered with stories of businesses that were started by, or profit off of, black folks but ritually lock us out. The black community spends billions on hair-care products, but most of the stores and companies we buy from aren’t for us or by us.
Amazon.com, the other tab that is probably open on your browser right now, announced Friday that it has agreed to buy the high-end supermarket Whole Foods, the final step in owner Jeff Bezos’ lifelong mission of cornering the market on whiteness.
Soon it will be that much easier for busy families who use food stamps to get groceries.
