Lawrence must’ve had a seasonal positional at Best Buy because he is back but will he be in a full-time employee in Issa’s life?

Insecure delivered one of the most sickening episodes with “High-Like” episode 4, and not because they brought back breaking couch potato, Lawrence. It was the conversation about friendships and how things change. Dealing with real situations and how friends can all have something going on but also come to support one another. But for some of us seeing Lawrence made us wet and how us wondering why since we didn’t want to see him anymore.

The last 2 minutes as Issa walks in 7-Eleven after trying to assure Tiffany that things will be the same after she has her baby. Tiffany seems to be reluctant that it will be. Issa walks into the store to get some water and runs into Chad the Bluetooth wearing real estate agent. As she looked over to her left (in my Tweet voice) their goes Lawrence looking so good without a mustache OH MY! Issa’s looks as if she is excited and Chad’s mood is all of us!

Take a look at some of the reactions from Twitter as some said: “To hell with Lawrence!”

Black People Stay Winning! Tiffany Haddish & Katt Williams Win Emmys!

Published

Tiffany Haddish made history last year for the being the first black female comedienne to host “Saturday Night Live.” Her performance garnered her a Creative Emmy for “best guest actress in a comedy.” During her SNL episode, Haddish addressed the hot button issue of sexual assault in Hollywood. It’s great that Haddish was able to bridge the gap between comedy and current events and get an Emmy for it! Haddish beat out Maya Rudolph, Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, and Wanda Sykes.

Another Emmy award winner we’re excited about is Katt Williams. The comedian won “best guest actor in a comedy” for his appearance on FX’s “Atlanta.” Katt Williams played Earn’s Uncle Willy and stole the show. This is great news because Williams career has gone through its ups and downs along with his personal life. With the Netflix special and this Emmy hopefully, this indicates that the “It’s Pimpin’ Pimpin'” comedian’s career is on an incline and we get to see him in more TV and film projects. Williams beat out Bryan Cranston, Donald Glover, Sterling K. Brown, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Bill Hader for the award.

It’s great to see black talent that would be classified as “ghetto” or “ratchet” win Emmy awards. This goes to show that that respectability politics isn’t ruling anything over here. Black people are being their authentic selves and getting awards for it.

Are y’all here for the Emmy’s now that we’re getting awards or are they still late like always? Let us know in the comments.

“I Don’t Cheat To Win I Rather Lose”, Serena Speaks Out Against US Open Penalities

Yesterday was the final match in the tennis U.S. Open between the Queen of Grand Slams, Serena Williams, and her competitor Naomi Osaka. I’m sure people we’re expecting a fair match between these two black women however the umpire who was watching over the game had something else in mind.

Naomi was giddy to be playing against her Idol Serena in the finals on Saturday as shown with this message to her in a interview where she said, “I Love You.”

Everything was going well during the final match until the umpire issued the first penalty against Serena. Carlos Ramos, the umpire that started the drama, issued Serena a penalty because of what seems like Serena’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, was coaching her while he was moving his hands.

Ramos issued the first penalty which immediately infuriated Serena who said to him, “You owe Me an Apology. I have never cheated in my life, I have a daughter for what’s and I stand what’s right for her.” 

Here’s more footage of Serena talking to Ramos about how he misinterpreted her coach’s hand gesture as coach Serena to do certain plays against Osaka but he seems to be unfazed from his earlier decision.

Serena tried to explain to the umpire how that she wasn’t cheating and why she didn’t deserve the penalty she was given but Ramos didn’t see the need to remove it from that portion of the match.

Ramos gave Serena her second penalty after she broke her racket on the court out of frustration.

Serena’s final penalty came after Serena was penalized for arguing with the umpire for his previous penalties that she was issued for earlier as a “code violation”.

Serena accused Ramos of stealing a point from her because of the previous penalties she was given which prevented her from scoring a point. It escalated to the point where Serena was talking with the referee about the umpire choice to give her a point was sexist because the men have done much worse than her and often aren’t penalized.

In her argument she said, “There are men out her who do a lot worse than me. But Because I’m a woman you’re going to take this away from me. That is Not Right.” 

The finals ended with Naomi Osaka being the first Haitian-Japenese woman to win the US Open and also being the youngest at 20 years old winning the Grand Slam title.

During the Award Ceremony the crowd was booing in disappointment that Serena did not obtain her 24th Grand Slam title 1 year after giving birth to her daughter. However she stopped them from their jeers and wanted them to appreciate Osaka winning her title. Although you could tell from her eyes and facial expressions that she was still shaken up from what happened earlier in the match.

Here’s what Serena had to say after the award Serena was finished in a interview with reporters.

On twitter there were tweets calling out the sexism, misogynoir, and racism that was being perpetrated from some news companies that called Serena’s passionate out burst a meltdown in their news headlines.

Tennis legend Billie Jean King commented on the events that happened calling for the double standards that women have to endure that men usually don’t have to think about.

Billie Jean King has written a in depth analysis piece on her perspective of the match and the double standards and abuse of power that took place during the match.

The drama doesn’t end there because Serena’s outburst with the umpire will cost her a $17,000 fine. There’s a lot of conversations that can be said from what happened yesterday from the Grand Slam Finals but I will finish it off with this.

Congratulations to Naomi Osaka for her 1st Grand Slam victory. And as for Serena Queen of the Grand Slams, Slayer of Sexism, Misogynoir, and Racism you’ll get your chance at a 24th Grand Slam soon.
