I’m down to my last two packets off “Red” Kool-Aid and I’m debating if I should just throw it away after the borderline racist comment Brian Kilmeade asks Harris Faulkner on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning.

Maybe Mr. Kilmead didn’t know any better and was just curious on what flavored sugary beverage he should serve to his guest this holiday season.

Harris Faulkner was just trying to show the caucasian gentlemen how to properly cook and season food.

She seemed so confused by the question I can only imagine what was going on in her head or how she should respond. She should’ve asked him how in the hell y’all stole all of these spices from different countries and refuse to use them on any of your food. Das Sad *in my Bella Noches voice* Anyway check out the video below and tell what you think.

 

What would you have told Brian Kilmeade after he asked if you make Kool-Aid?

    Why would he even say that? What an idiot. Someone like that doesn’t need to be on tv representing white people, ?

    That’s what she gets for going on Fox New, for even being apart of that mess. He did it right in front of her child. Hes going to spin this as Oh I didn’t know, I wasn’t trying to be offensive, you people are too sensitive. Blah Blah.

    What did kool-aid have to do with anything in that segment?! She was so taken aback..and his curiosity could’ve been saved for off-air banter. He knew what he was doing, smh.

    This was not borderline, it was definitely a racist comment. Why Kool-Aid though? When you think of Summer, you think of cold lemonade or sweet iced tea (especially if you from the South). And what does that even have to do with her putting strawberries in her cobbler? I can not…

    You know, at first I was about to defend him as just asking an innocent question, but then as I thought about it: These people are slick and should not be underestimated with their racism. Everything is getting more sophisticated, now-days and racism is no exception.

    I would have responded “Do you know how to live in a land without tricking and killing off everyone else first?” But maybe that’s just the Thanksgiving spirit in me talking.

    As you can see I am white as hell. With that being said, I am so sick of the fried chicken, watermelon and whatever comments. White people like that shit just as much!
    I personally never gave my children cool aid. That was because of the sugar content. They also never got soda. I do know that they got cool aid at other family members and friends houses and they loved that shit! Lol

    I am reading comments that Fox News is a white supremacist, racist media outlet.

    I have a question.

    Is Bill O’Reilly racist for repeatedly addressing with many different guests, America’s expanding and shameful *National Epidemic of Childhood Abuse and Neglect*, *Poverty*, that for more than two generations has deprived untold numbers of American kids from experiencing and enjoying a fairly happy American kid childhood with *Safe Streets* to travel and play on.

    *Child Abuse and Neglect* that is primarily responsible for populating our prisons with depressed, angry, frustrated, undisciplined, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults full of resentment for irresponsibly being introduced to a life of hardships and struggles.

    *Early Childhood Abuse and Neglect* that often leads depressed, sometimes suicidal *(NY Times May 18, 2015 – Rise in Suicide by Black Children Surprises Researchers)* children to develop into depressed, angry, frustrated, unpredictable, sometimes suicidal teens and adults lacking empathy and compassion for others, though needing to vent their pent up negative emotions, often causing emotional and physical harm to peaceful people…instead of venting their anger, resentment and pain on the immature single moms and/or dads who introduced them to a life of pain and struggle by irresponsibly building a family before acquiring the practical skills, *PATIENCE* and means to successfully raise and nurture a developing young child who matures into a fairly happy responsible teen and adult with mostly fond memories of his or her childhood.

    The question all concerned, compassionate Americans should seriously be asking ourselves, our elected, civil, social, community and religious leaders is, what real, substantial changes in our society’s attitude and laws need to occur to prevent abuse that often causes young kids to mature into depressed, frustrated, angry teens and adults as a result of experiencing the *emotional and/or physical trauma of an abusive childhood?*

    Black *(Children’s)* Lives Matter; Take Pride In Parenting; *End Our National Epidemic of Child Abuse and Neglect*; End Community Violence, Police Fear & Educator’s Frustrations

Uncle Snoop Get Your Apology to Ari Lennox Ready

mm

Published

on

Apparently, everyone’s favorite uncle likes apologizing. Fresh off of his apology tour for his controversial comments towards broadcast journalists Gayle King,  Snoop Dogg decided to comment on Ari Lennox’s Instagram live to instruct her to “grow your own hair.”

Yesterday, the Dreamville songbird took to Instagram Live in true Ari fashion to document her trying on a new lace front wig.  Not known for wearing wigs, she struggled with figuring out how much lace to cut and securing the hair as she entertained her followers with hilarious gestures and commentary.  

Eventually, a snippet of the video ended up on The Shade Room for everyone’s viewing pleasure.  

Moments later, Snoop was unnecessarily commenting under the video.

In no time, women were coming to Ari’s defense, reminding the legendary rapper that his wife and daughter are no strangers to wigs. 

You’d think men would know to leave their opinions to themselves when it comes to women’s hair, especially black women, but clearly, Uncle Snoop forgot to read that particular memo. 

Once Ari caught wind of Snoop’s comments, she delivered a lovely little shade tree, posting a photo of Snoop wearing a blonde wig with the caption, “Uncle I just…I just thought we had an understanding….”

Following the backlash that he’s currently receiving, I can already envision the apology that’s sure to follow.  Perhaps someone should remind Uncle Snoop that the best apology is changed behavior…

A post shared by D-Nice (@dnice) on

During a CBS This Morning interview, D-Nice shared, “I literally just played what feels good. I wanted people to feel good. I wanted their experience to be lifted through music, just one song at a time.” And he’s done just that. While on live, his comment section is a constant stream of cheers, shout outs, and music-lovers asking, “Where the drinks at?” It feels like the best VIP section you’ll ever experience but from your living room. 

“No matter what your problems are, you can put on a good tune and it just takes you away and I was trying to do that,” he explained. “It wasn’t just the music, it was the whole experience and everyone escaping what’s going on today just for a few hours.”

While some of his neighbors have complained about the noise, D-Nice is committed to keeping the party going as the universal language of music is playing a vital role in keeping us all connected.

We have DJ D-Nice to thank for that!

Jay Electronica & Joe Budden Used Their Twitter Fingers to Exchange Insults

mm

Published

on

It took 10 years for Jay Electronica to release his highly-anticipated album, A Written Testimony. While some are singing his praises, others are incredibly disappointed. One such person is former rapper turned media personality, Joe Budden. 

Budden used his platform, The Joe Budden Podcast episode Dry Snitching to express his disappointment. Budden proclaimed, “You’ve been missing for ten years- which is cool, ’cause you’ve been living life. But that confidence that I thought you might’ve been living life with is suppressed…that lens that I’m looking through paints the story of a different MC. And that MC is one that would get smacked around by Hov on every song.”

In response, Electronica took to Twitter and posted a video clip of DaBaby saying “fuck it,” directing the tweet at Rory, one of the co-hosts on Budden’s podcast.

Shortly after, Budden responded referring to Jay-Z’s performance on A Written Testimony, where he appears on eight of ten tracks. “I never got absolutely mopped around on my own project either… @ me, not Rory.”

Here’s how the rest of that conversation went:

The tirade ended with Electronica demanding credit for “lighting up” the podcast episode.

Electronica released A Written Testimony on Friday, March 13th. It’s his first solo album after more than ten years of delays with features by Jay-Z, The-Dream and Travis Scott, with additional production by The Alchemist, No ID, Swizz Beatz and Hit-Boy.
