Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum, Bum

Steve Harvey went on a hideously racist rant about Asian men

Yes, there have been some milestone moments, like ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat, Aziz Ansari’s Masters of None, Riz Ahmed starring in The Night Of, and Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. But instead of there being a significant increase in representation, Asian actors are...

Let's look back at 8 years of Barack Obama and Joe Biden's beautiful bromance

We’re nearing the end of Barack Obama’s presidency, and as hard as it’s going to be to say goodbye—particularly because we’re saying hello to a gaggle of bigots—it’s probably going to be even harder to say goodbye to America’s ultimate power couple. Two people who forged a relationship full of love, mutual respect, understanding, and affection that has given us life for the past eight years....

Let's remember President Obama with some of his best memes

It’s a heartbreaking thing to admit, but Barack Obama will not be our president for much longer. This vague discomfort as well as the anxiety we are about to face under a Trump presidency that will surely undermine Obama's is about to become far more crystallized with Obama’s parting speech on Tuesday.

Stop telling black people when our slang words are 'over'

It's around this time every year when news outlets across the internet take a look back at the year behind them and think to themselves, "What are some of the buzziest words [we've undoubtedly used in headlines] that we think are passé?"
