Agreed. The only positive that may come from this is the precedent it should help establish. I hope from now on EVERY prosecuting lawyer coming after a cop who kills an unarmed black civilian cites this case — if this helps their case, maybe we’re progressing, but if (more likely, when) it doesn’t, it will reinforce Read more

Thanks, man. Definitely gonna check this out. Agreed about the magnetic quality — when I saw him last year here in Atlanta, he ended the concert by stating he was feeling everyone’s vibes and wanted to touch everyone there, then proceeded to come off the stage into the crowd (at least 300-400 people there at this

This situation is even worse when you put it in perspective — just think of ALL the white people who call cops on blacks for doing nothing, and absolutely nothing happens to them. Yet, these actual victims of racist/sexist violence, who rightfully call the cops to handle it, get treated violently, disrespected and Read more

True. We can’t let this become the norm. Hopefully, in the future we’ll all be able to look back at 2016-2020 as just some awful blip on the radar before things returned to some sense of normalcy ...

You are correct, my bad. I thought her late birthday disqualified her from running in 2024, but I was wrong -- she'll be of age by the actual elections. This is actually good news and forgive my miscalculation.

29+6=35; 2019+6=2025. Presidents are sworn in January of the year following an election year (2024 is an election year). Again ... in 2025, SHE WON’T BE 35 UNTIL OCTOBER (that’s nearly 10 months after January, btw). #MIF

Her birthday is October 13, 1989. She’s 29. She won’t be 35 until October 13, 2025. Again, she’s too young to be president in 2024 since they get sworn in on January of 2025. Sooo ... again, AOC 2028.

We’re really still talking about “experience” when the current president was never even a class president at any of his schools prior to being elected?

It's a shame AOC is too young to run for president in 2020 ... and 2024. AOC 2028!!!

Couldn’t agree with this more. EVERY time someone brings up how blacks who are shot/killed by officers “shouldn’t have been (insert excuse here),” I bring up how serial killers (majority of whom are white) are almost always either captured alive or die because they commit suicide. No one ever has a good comeback ... Read more

Was just about to say the same — WAY too much truth in this ... the whole mailbag clapback will probably be responses to this one lone article. Excellent work (as usual) by Harriot.

I used to work at the AU Center and passed that mural several times a week the past few years (I really loved it). To be fair, that building it was painted on was in bad shape and it’s not surprising it was demolished. However, the timing of it being demolished is quite suspect (to put it mildly) ...

He probably channeled this, ahem, “very brief” time in his life for his Widows character ...

This right here. Maher isn’t a racist, but definitely has accepted and buys into many racist ideas. Even worse, his comfort level with black people has gone too far on many occasions — I personally think a lot of it comes from his serial dating with many black women in his past. Read more

My wife and I actually saw it in the theater when it dropped last year. I had the same overall response to the movie, but I was really surprised at how predictable it was at the beginning ... which was EXACTLY the same beginning as Ocean’s 11. That decision was so predictable that it was actually surprising ... because Read more

Is it strange that I'm even more upset at Google having the lyrics to Creep posted for No Scrubs? What part of the algorithm game is that?

Agreed. Also, people need to put the timing of the skit in context. It was not too long after the actual tape had been out there, so if anything, Dave was bringing attention to it probably expecting R. Kelly to be behind bars soon for doing that shit. Little did he or anyone else know they would get the trial delayed Read more

Why should Kendrick have had to ask for all that? He’s only an artist, and all he did was threaten to remove his music from Spotify if they continued cherrypicking. I think what you mean to say is SPOTIFY should have removed ALL rapists (regardless of race) from playlists they create, right?
