For Colored Girls Who Are Tired of Lena Dunham When Her Racism Is Enuf

Should I dedicate this to “colored girls” (Black women and Black feminists) since we’ve been battling “Lena Dunhams” since the beginning of time? Or should I dedicate this to the Black men Lena Dunham maligned, who, historically, have been killed because of the … Continue reading

Nate Parker’s “Apology” Is Some Fine PR Work. But It’s Still Not Enough

Let’s be clear: Nate Parker’s recent sit down with Ebony was nothing short of PR genius. This, instead of those shameful, reactionary press releases that Parker and team released months earlier, should have been the interview he gave before news of his infamous campus rape incident resurfaced. Why? Well, he “goes off-script”. His doing so … Continue reading

Ghostbusters Review: Leslie Jones, You Deserve Better

I like to keep y’all gagging for more. So every 6 months or so, I swing by the Zoo with a sarcastic review of some mediocre movie I’ve had the displeasure of watching. Today, ladies and gents, that movie is Ghostbusters. Not the original, obviously. No…unfortunately, it’s the crappy remake. Melissa McCarthy (ew), Kate McKinnon … Continue reading

#AbandonSwift: A Twitter Story and PSA For Tom Hiddleston

So Twitter–which I have literally been a part of for 2.5 days–has given the world something to rally behind instead of #BLM for the whole of 24 hours…as well as giving slawin’ ass E!
