Scott Derrickson Thinks Praise Is More Effective Than Criticism. Here’s Why That’s Bullshit

Dearest Lovers of the Zoo. I know what you’re thinking: I know what you’re thinking: Lex, it’s only the fourth day of the year. Why are you wildin’ already? In a way, you’re right. It is too early to wild. But if I am to keep it 100, I must say that there are plenty … Continue reading

The Power of Black Feminism Compels You: Why You Should Put Some Respeck On Our Names

Nate Parker’s Magnum Opus has flopped. Hoteps, rape apologists, race-first ideology subscribers and Roland Martin are blaming Black feminists for it. But you know what? I’m not even mad. In fact, I am so gleeful as I write these words. Reckless ass articles are being written and published with less than an ounce of respectable … Continue reading

Zendaya’s Casting as Mary Jane Watson Proves It’s Never Just About “Canon”

So this past weekend, I spent all my time collecting a bunch of Chet™ tears as well as the tears of his nerdy cousin Doug™. Why was I doing this? Well, here’s the thing: Ya girl Mary Jane Watson…is now Black. That’s right. Marvel recently announced that Zendaya Coleman is going to be playing the … 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.
