Google Got It Right!

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards aired last night amid a somber mood of loss and reflection. Yet, on a day when the world was mourning the loss of Kobe Bryant, the show must go on. And so it did. 

Host, Alicia Keys, did her best to liven up the crowd. As the evening progressed, laughs, smiles and celebration filled the room. Usher’s performance and tribute to Prince was a Grammy moment, as was the tribute to the late, great Nipsey Hussle. But what caught black Twitter attention was Google’s, The Most Searched: A Celebration of Black History Makers, commercial.

The commercial featured Beyonce’s Coachella performance as the most searched performance, Misty Copeland as the most searched ballerina, Howard University as the most searched homecoming, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I have a dream” speech as the most searched speech. 

The video closed with the statement, “To the history makers and those they inspire. Search on.” Currently sitting at over 22 million views, Google has the official seal of approval from the culture. Perhaps this time next year, they’ll have earned the honor of acknowledging itself as the “Most Searched” commercial. It’s that good!

Although we’re still days away from the official start of Black History Month, Google has given us yet another reason to proclaim, “I’m Black and I’m Proud.”

Here’s what black twitter had to say:

Did you enjoy the Google’s, The Most Searched: A Celebration of Black History Makers, commercial?

‘Real Housewives of Potomac’ star Candiace Dillard Makes Fatphobic Comment Towards Blogger and Suggest That He “Drop Dead”

*deep negro spiritual sigh* There are very few things that truly anger me. Somehow, Candiace, a woman whose mouth seems to get her beat up often, has found one of those few buttons with her latest statement.

So, here I am, minding my fat ass business when I see this:

Rumor has it that she was talking about Kyle from The Black Socialites. It really doesn’t matter who she was talking about, but I guess we’ll never know because she didn’t have the courage to say a name. She did have the courage, however, to talk about her involvement with “plots” against other cast members. She was able to talk for two hours, under the glow of her pale husband’s flickering TV screen, about absolutely nothing of substance.

There are uprisings happening, a pandemic happening, but she’s worried about “plotting” in the DMV. We just passed the 6th anniversary of Michael Brown’s death. That’s in her backyard. That’s a pain that she should be deconstructing. Instead she chooses to attack a fat Black man who is working hard to bring her show press.

I’ll end with the victim’s words, and we can all go back to not knowing Candiace exists:

Zoe Saldana Apologizes For Nina Simone Role… 5 Years After She Took It

Zoe Saldana has officially apologized for rubbing mud-colored makeup on her face and playing a role meant for “a Black girl”. If you’ll recall, we were all terrified when we saw her slather on an entire bottle of Fenty 450 and a prosthetic nose to play Nina Simone.

The interview is long, but eventually, she does admit that she was wrong for taking the role. “I should have never played Nina. I should have done everything in my power with the leverage that I had 10 years ago — which was a different leverage, but it was leverage nonetheless” she said.

In 2016, though sis had another tune to sing:

I made a choice. Do I continue passing on the script and hope that the ‘right’ Black person will do it, or do I say, ‘You know what? Whatever consequences this may bring about, my casting is nothing in comparison to the fact that this story must be told.

Zoe Saldana, Allure

It’s just interesting that it seems to have required the burning of buildings and the death of countless Black people for her to figure out that Blackface is no bueno.
