'Too Black,' Too 'Difficult,' Too Honest: Why Gabrielle Union's Firing Feels Painfully Familiar to Black Women

'Too Black,' Too 'Difficult,' Too Honest: Why Gabrielle Union's Firing Feels Painfully Familiar to Black Women

Growing up, I was constantly told to “shhh!” Whether I was right or wrong, happy or in distress, I was repeatedly reminded to lower my voice and take up less space—even while being simultaneously assured that I could be anything I wanted to be and that my gifts were worth sharing with the world. Granted, I was a loud-ass kid (and occasionally still a loud-ass adult, if and when the moment...

Awkward! Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani Spills the Tea After Butt-Dialing a Reporter

Awkward! Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani Spills the Tea After Butt-Dialing a Reporter

Maybe Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani needs to learn how to lock his phone.

According to NBC News, Giuliani butt-dialed one of its reporters on at least two occasions, allowing the writer to overhear Trump’s hype man mouthpiece discussing how much he needs cold, hard cash and bad-mouthing the Bidens (Joe and his son, Hunter).

NBC reporter Rich Schapiro explains he could only make...

30 Days of Musical Blackness With VSB, Day 18: The Temptations 'Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)'

30 Days of Musical Blackness With VSB, Day 18: The Temptations 'Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)'

As a child, I grew up hearing The Temptations, but I don’t recall really listening. Of course, I knew of Motown and thus I knew some of their biggest songs, some by heart, even if I wasn’t entirely up on game. “Papa Was A Rolling Stone,” and “My Girl,” and “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg,” are all songs from my childhood. But 1998 changed all of that. In November 1998, NBC aired a somewhat fictitious...

Tom Brokaw’s Comment on Hispanics Wasn’t Racist. It Was White Magic

Tom Brokaw’s Comment on Hispanics Wasn’t Racist. It Was White Magic

Confession: I was a magic nerd.

When I was young, I was really into the art of illusion. During my adolescence, I spent my meager allowance on three-dollar rope tricks and magic sets from Spencer’s Gifts. I learned the finger palm, the false drop, the sleeve tuck, and—although I never wore a top hat—I often dreamed that one day I would create the greatest magic trick ever:

The no-flourish,...

After the shock and awe of the headline wears off, feel free to continue reading the rest of this article.

You good? Aiight, cool.

On Friday, NBC News announced that it was officially kicking its controversial host Megyn Kelly to the curb. The unceremonious divorce ends a year-long, lackluster fling with NBC that included poor ratings, a guest appearance by some imbecile named Alex Jones, and...

Post Megyn Kelly, The Today Show's Ratings Climb

We’d be lying if we said this news didn’t make us snicker in the slightest, so we’ll just admit it outright: In what can only be described as an exquisite demonstration of karma, the Today show has seen a ratings jump since the sudden departure of its once prized catch-turned-money pit, Megyn Kelly.

In fact, as reported by Variety, the multi-hour morning show saw an immediate five percent...

Al Roker Joins a Full-Color Cast in Megyn Kelly’s Today Slot 

If you tuned into the third hour of the Today show on Monday morning (or tuned in for the first time, out of sheer curiosity), no doubt you were greeted with some friendly and familiar faces. It was likely the most colorful the hour has been in over a year—or at least since Megyn Kelly Today debuted last September.

Megyn Kelly Is (Probably) Losing Her Job Because She Sucks At It, Not Because She's Racist

Megyn Kelly Is (Probably) Losing Her Job Because She Sucks At It, Not Because She's Racist

Sentient vat of recycled Great Value Wite-Out Megyn Kelly appears to be losing her job very soon. Perhaps it will happen while I am typing this sentence. (Did it?) The straw that broke this racist camel’s back, of course, was her awkward and illogical and just dumb-as-the-fuck defense of blackface Halloween costumes and then her subsequent half-assed mea culpa.

Of course, since rich white...

Girl, Bye: Megyn Kelly Dropped by CAA, Expected to End Megyn Kelly Today by End of Season

Whew, life comes at you fast. If Santa Claus is indeed white, Megyn Kelly is obviously on his “naughty” list given that, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Kelly will likely be ending her hour of the Today show by the close of the current season. Surprisingly, this was reportedly in the works before her now-infamous defense of blackface on her Tuesday morning show. THR’s sources say Kelly...
