#SurvivingCardiB? Predation Is a Genderless Crime, but Cardi B Drugging and Robbing Men Is Not Rape

#SurvivingCardiB? Predation Is a Genderless Crime, but Cardi B Drugging and Robbing Men Is Not Rape

“Let me tell you something,” Cardi B said during an Instagram Live post on Sunday, in which she announced plans to write a book (h/t Complex). “I am a rapper. I am a bitch that came from the streets that came to the industry. I wasn’t a Disney channel star. I wasn’t a nun. I wasn’t a saint. ... I have done fucked up shit.”

It’s not a novel background for a rapper, but in a very emotional,...

A Whole New WTF: First Look at Live-Action Aladdin Emerges—and So Do the Jokes

Dear DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, You Can Be Wrong but You Can’t be Loud and Wrong About Mumbo Sauce

Dear DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, You Can Be Wrong but You Can’t be Loud and Wrong About Mumbo Sauce

Many years ago I remember getting into an argument with a friend about the documentary, Waiting for Superman, the 2010 documentary that looks at the American public school system. The argument wasn’t about the specifics of the film at all. The argument was about how well-known the documentary was. I argued that because I’d never heard of it (I’m about to sound real ridiculous in a second), it...

An Ohio School Resource Officer Really Thought It Was a Good Idea to Activate a Taser to Wake a Sleeping Student

A Smithville, Ohio, school resource officer was put on unpaid leave after allegedly using her Taser to wake up a student who was sleeping during class.

Seriously.

But let’s start at the beginning: On Aug. 30, at Liberty Preparatory School, a community charter school, the following incident occurred.

According to News5 Cleveland, neither the teacher nor interim principal Jenna Parnell could wake...

10 Things Easier to Comprehend Than Household Income of $117,000 Being Considered Low-Income in the Bay Area

10 Things Easier to Comprehend Than Household Income of $117,000 Being Considered Low-Income in the Bay Area

We all know that the cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area is insane. According to a report by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the median price for a single-family home in the Bay Area is $935,000. The median. Because of this high cost of living, a family earning $117,000 is considered low-income. Bruh.

Families earning $117,000 now qualify as "low income" in...

Tennessee Man Finds Racist ‘Owner’s Manual’ at His Job

The deplorables apparently know no bounds, and an employee with the Obion County, Tenn., Highway Department—who says that he has regularly been the victim of racism in his workplace—now has solid, written proof in the form of an “owner’s manual.”

Deandre Adams sent over the four-page document, titled “The Nigger Owner’s Manual,” to his attorney Kathy Laughter Laizure, WREG-TV reports.

The Empire Season Finale Was Fuckin' Fantastic

The Empire Season Finale Was Fuckin' Fantastic

Much like the rest of America, last night I tuned into the season finale of Empire, the show that has been kickin' ass and takin' names since it debuted in January. It's so popular now that local news shows were doing stories on Empire wach parties. That really happened. My guitar gently weeps for civilized society. Or at least it would if I didn't understand. The show has been a ratings...

My Significant Other Made Up an Elaborate Backstory to Steal My Shirt

My Significant Other Made Up an Elaborate Backstory to Steal My Shirt

The following words were approved by my household. 

My life is a fun one. I’ve got awesome children, and my home is full of love and often the smell of the holidays and gingerbread houses because my woman has somehow decided that boiling (and forgetting to turn off the eye until it’s too late—I spend a mint on stainless steel scouring pads) cinnamon in water is the only way to properly achieve...

Trump Spoke at the Opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in What Was Essentially a Photo Op

Trump Spoke at the Opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in What Was Essentially a Photo Op

President Donald Trump has made it pretty clear how he feels about black people. He has refused to condemn white nationalists and routinely calls out black pro football players for protesting police brutality. So why would the hater in chief accept an invitation to speak at the opening of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum in Jackson on Saturday?

Because he likes taking pictures with...

WTF, Variety? 

WTF, Variety? 

So, yesterday Variety dropped a story about the increasing number of subscribers that are ditching traditional pay-TV. Cool. No problem. Important story or whatever.

But what in the fresh hell were they thinking using imagery of cable nooses for this story?

Much edgy.

So wow.

Seriously, what exactly what this meant to convey? How are nooses even relevant to this story?

With all the things...

Ann Coulter Is Dating Jimmie Walker. Are Your Eyes Burning, Too?

Old people love to tell other people’s business without a single care in the world. And why should they care? They’re old as hell, so there has to be a certain reverence from anyone their junior. Well, if you were raised right, you show respect to the AARP demo, but even if you don’t, they don’t give a shit ’cause they’re old.

The legendary Norman Lear, 94, is proof of this after he revealed...

The 7 Most Outrageous and Racist Acts Found in DOJ’s Report on Baltimore Police Department

The 7 Most Outrageous and Racist Acts Found in DOJ’s Report on Baltimore Police Department

The Department of Justice’s scathing report on the Baltimore Police Department spelled out in exacting detail how the BPD violated the constitutional rights of black residents through a series of brutal and abusive tactics that basically had a community under siege.

Perusing the pages of the report is like reading some bizarro crime novel, where the criminals wear badges and carry guns, all...
