Watch This Sketch.
Comedy tells stories. You can’t tell black stories without black comedians. This is why black comedy is important. This sketch could not /would not happen with a lily white/tokenized sketch show. This is my new favorite piece of comedy now and that is really saying a lot.
Bolding mine. This is a great example of a sketch that isn’t “about race” but is, because white dudez wouldn’t/couldn’t make this sketch.
Am I the only one who unironically loves Keanu Reeves movies?
This is what I wonder about as I wait for my screening of John Wick.
The problem is I’m not sure which I find more attractive.
I have read neither the novel nor the manga, but learning that Edge of Tomorrowis based on a Japanese work with a Japanese hero with the action set in East Asia really changed my feelings about the resulting film. I actually really enjoyed the movie despite its derivativeness and lapses in sense-making, well-chronicled by my colleague Andé Morgan here. But now it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Because I’m fine with liking an unoriginal and illogical sci-fi movie, but I’m not so cool with liking an unoriginal, illogical, andracistsci-fi movie.
Because turning Keiji Kiriya into William Cage, casting Tom Cruise, moving the action to Western Europe, and casting white people in 98 percent of the speaking roles are all racist acts perpetuating bullshit white supremacy in Hollywood.

My sister- and brother-in-law can claim “family name” all they want, I’ll never really believe that they didn’t name their baby Clyde after this tortoise.
Yeah, this pretty much sums up my Gilmore Girls feelings
A useless boob who sends a car service over a useless boob who writes in your books or a useless boob who does whatever Dean even did any day. But Paris forever.
Re: penultimate gif, one of the most common questions I’m asked about America is “do people really think Africa is a country?” and I’m always sad to report, “Yeah, kinda.”
