Comedy: Do Black Guys Prefer Big Booty Over Big Boobs? (Video)

Booty = Cake = Listens To Jill Scott… Alright then. Let’s figure this booty vs. boobie thing out. Cakes or jugs, it’s all love. Funny clip. Cute Honeyz. Hella sexy!

Everyone has preferences, and it’s not uncommon to assume that our Black brothers have a preference for booty over boobs. This assumption is put to the test to determine if it’s true.

Flashback Footage Of Stephen A. Smith’s Strong Views On Black Men & Women, Dating And More (Video)

Yoooo! Okay, so Stephen A. is a man with priorities… getting his hands on the booty and them legs… PRIORITY! Ha! Can’t be mad at that, or at the frankness of these clips (above, and after the jump). Check out ‘another side’ of the sports commentator. Still giving out strong opinions though.

Comedy: Do Women Prefer Tall Men? (Video)

Okay, two things… (1) Short comedians in here are hilarious! And (2) what did ADD plan to do with the green screen? Was there a plan to drop in a background (as in all def DIGITAL) that ultimately failed?

The Honeyz in this clip are fine af. Gotta be said. And I am not a six-footer, so I gotta work on my joke game (heard the one who said humor ‘gets her wet’ right?)!

Sorry Team Jordan, Tracy McGrady Is Picking Lebron James. Final Answer! (Video)

We agree with Tracy McGrady….. Fight us!

(Respect to Paul. He had his points. But Lebron had more points. Ha! PLUS he uplifts teammates. And he actually looks to pass the ball. But, you watch and decide, and do you.)

Keith Olbermann With A Way To Corner President Trump In The Oval Office: Let’s Go To The Tapes (Video)

Damn. Keith highlights a good point on this episode of ‘The Resistance.’ If the tape or tapes that can clear President Trump of former FBI Director James Comey exist, investigators should demand them. And they better prove Trump’s innocence of EVERY allegation; because if he is proven guilty of even one Comey accusation in the recordings… he’s OUT of the White House.

By casually raising the idea he’s got tapes, Donald Trump has found new trouble.
– GQ

Plus, by now, Trump cannot simply claim the tweet about the tapes was in ‘error’ nor can he deny their existence. Well, he can. Because, you know, The Donald. But he should not be allowed to do that.

Watch Remy Ma ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

Wow, Remy Ma is RAW! Weezy scores a 2. She recorded with Montana and he got the lowest score she could give. Zero for Fabolous and Joe Buddens, too. EVERYBODY can get it!

Interesting. Remy gave higher than expected rank to enemy-as-of-late Nicki Minaj. Seems like true ratings can come through when you cannot match the lyrics to Hip-Hop’s Who’s Who. Bars matter, not an emcee’s so-called ‘status’ in the game.

Big Boi Says White Suits Are Overrated, But How About Blowjob Robots And Other Stuff? (Video)

Big Boi rates bowling, blowjob robots (what??!), Atlanta’s oldest strip club, Hatsune Miku, Sade, pre-rolled joints, and more… No scale, just judging things as ‘pass’ or ‘passed over’ – Over/Under [rated] that is.

Politics: Follow the Money… It May Well Connect Russia To President Trump

Keith Olbermann says, “Follow the money,” a LOT in this episode of “The Resistance”… and it’s okay, because it has apparently ben said by EVERYONE except who we think (e.g. credit) as the person who actually said it first. To the point Olbermann is trying to make above, folks who want to get to the bottom of what Trump is up to might do well to heed those words. Here’s Olbermann’s latest rant and his reasoned path to his conclusion about probable Russian collusion (with Trump’s campaign on his Presidential win).

DL Hughley Speaks On ESPN’s Sage Steele Firing, White Privilege, & Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly (Video)

Deeeeem! It’s cold out here for Sage Steele now that the ESPN door got slammed, esp. in the Hughley-verse.

More than that, in this short clip, DL went IN on the FoxNews x Bill O’Reilly situation in the right way… Hell, I remember having genuine HEAT for FoxNews’ ‘Papa Bear’ when he attacked Ludacris on his show (attempted character assassination); when Pepsi dumped Luda as a spokesperson (by the way, eff Pepsi for that.. I’m a Pepper)!

A Closer Look At The Story Of King Kong (Video)

Talk about knowing what you are getting into. The folks behind the latest King Kong movie declare they are doing their adaptation in a way different way than the way the story has been brought to screen historically… the way this docu-short makes clear. The math on the story of King Kong to date, King Kong’s Story = The Tragic History Of The Slave Trade.

Megaton mic drop.

Careful watching this one in [culturally] mixed company. True, the revelations in this expose clip won’t be so much so to Black people contentwise. Rather, we’re more surprised that someone actually ‘said it aloud for everyone to hear.’ But for any who end up screen-gazing in wide-mouthed astonishment – that someone could draw such distinct parallels between the Kong story and the history of the African slave trade – is it really THAT hard to make the connection?

Billionaire ‘Shark Tank’ Investor Mark Cuban Takes A Hard Look At President Trump’s First Days (Video)

I will admit: It will be hard for me to balance the passion and political savvy it takes to show love for my country. You have to be involved with something, passionately involved, to really show that you are in LOVE with it, right? Okay, then. I love this country. I show it with passion, warts and all. I did so at the ballot box last year, and things did not go my way. I felt the Bern and got burnt. Pulled for Hillary, but got Trumped.

Bitter, sure. Beaten, no. I’m an American. Even when we take an L we don’t take defeat. So, where are we now? In the first weeks of Donald Trump’s Presidency. Lots of folks are speaking up. Passionately. And we have to talk. It just can’t all be hate and futility. That is, in part, why I had to ‘re-title’ the YouTube video above. In it, Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban says WAY more than ‘Trump set the bar low.’ There is actually some thought mixed into the rant. Take a listen.

We will not agree on everything, on that we can agree. But here is something on which we must agree: I will listen to you, and you to me. Most of all, to you who did NOT vote…I am listening.

(If we are really honest, that might be what got us to this point in history. So, let’s listen. Starting with this fiery Cuban commentary.)

Opinion: Talladega College’s Marching Band Goes To Washington (Video)


Above: The Talladega College Marching Tornadoes march in the parade celebrating the Inauguration of the United States’ 45th President, Donald Trump. The music selection played in the clip…“Dreamin'” (appropos in a way).

Complicated. Mixed feelings. I could easily sort them out by sticking to my President Trump = Cobra Commander = Ultimate Evil algorithm… but Trump is who we got. He is The President now.

And these kids. Children. OUR children. What would they have ‘got’ from listening to me, or to the many who’d tell the Talladega College band to turn down an opportunity to perform for The President on National TV and get exposure and funding their school needs? What would they have ‘got’…? Nothing!

Now, that is no justification either… because back when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and lifelong friend Ambassador Andrew Young and eventual U.S. Rep. John Lewis, CT Vivian, Dr. Bernard LaFayette and… what did THEY ‘got’ after being booed, beaten blue and bloody? Nothing! That’s what our heroes ‘got.’

I cannot, if I am real with my realest self, declare those TC band members ‘sellouts’ or say that they were fools for playing the Inauguration. Had I the talent and opportunity in that situation, I might have done the same or sent my kids if I had any. But being an official old man in the eyes of every student who went, I could have told them about optics (Omarosa being their ‘welcome committee’ and clamoring for selfies) AND what the event looks like from a historical perspective… melancholy at best.

Think of it this way: When you picture King, Lewis, Vivian, LaFayette and pictures from poignant moments of their youth… What do you see? Courage, strength in the face of adversity, a fight worth fighting, hope for the future. But when you see TC’s band in pics with Omarosa or playing the Inauguration…

That is for YOU to decide, perhaps over the next few years.

Either way, kids, the story ain’t over. By now you are back on campus. That scholarship money, new practice space, etc. can be used to learn to EXCEL… to prepare you to ENGAGE… to follow in the footsteps of the guy many of you hoped to see (Barack Obama) and CHANGE THE WORLD. You can take what ‘the man’ gave you and use it to fuel the revolution!

After all, Nat Turner ate the scraps ‘Massa’ threw at him and read the Bible he ‘let’ him have, kept up his strength and fueled his faith, THEN LED THE REVOLT!

Who Does Nas Think The Top Rap Acts Currently Are? (Video)

Get right to it: Who is Nas feeling among the newer school artists of now. Cole & Kendrick, certainly. But Weezy though? Interesting, but much too short from Nas, clip from Revolt’s “Music Talks” Series.

Teens React To Tupac Shakur (Video)

Think the kids have lost their way in Hip-Hop when they can say Tupac? Who is that?’ while we have debates about Pac’s place in your all-time Top 5 list. Watch, as the kids get familiar with some work from the late, great rapper/actor.

Before you click play, how do you think the millennials in the video will react? Might surprise you.

RA The Rugged Man And Vlad Debate Drake Vs. Rakim Vs. Nas Vs. Jay Z (Video)

This title should be updated to include “Vs. The Diabolical Biz Markie” (dope live performer)! Great point made about real emcees, real MCs, deserving credit for Moving Crowds. Rakim (on the list, in the title) said that in his rhyme. And at its foundations, real MC-ing, THAT’S HIP-HOP! I like the energy of this debate as much as the content. Vlad and RA get it in!

(Those other guys in the title… they a’ight on the mic, too… except Vlad Haa!)

Pharrell Williams Speaks On His Post-Election Feelings, “Hidden Figures” And More (Video)

In this sit-down, Pharrell also speaks on who “Happy” was originally for… goes into his love for A Tribe Called Quest, Public Enemy, living in Virginia, and much more! A lot of meat in a relatively short, but deep conversation. Pharrell Williams talks about the “Hidden Figures” movie – for which he served as producer and soundtrack composer. Even segueing into that early on got deep.

Don’t trust the polls…Millennials don’t answer house phones, and there’s 43 million Americans.

Well worth the half-hour. Peep.

Comedy: John Cena Lampoons The University Of Alabama’s Football Players’ Academic Performance On SNL (Video)

Three judges (Beck Bennett, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson) play favorites while reviewing students’ (Mikey Day, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena) projects.

Okay, knowing that @ojones1 is on the squad and that he is an Alabama alum and die-hard Tide fan aside… this is hilarious! Shout to A Tribe Called Quest and Dave Chappelle for getting eyes back onto Saturday Night Live for real back a while ago. So glad to have caught this ep. Damn O-Jeezuz, your school’s athletes research many of those ’round orange bananas’? And banana peel crust for real?? BWAAAAAHAHAAAAA!

But fair is fair. Read the @ojones1 commentary/response/rebuttal/whatev after the jump!

DJ Premier On The State Of New York Rap (Video)

Preemo ONLY plays the bangers! That’s his lane, and it is not for the wack. And he is DEFINITELY qualified to be a gatekeeper for real Hip-Hop. To be clear, DJ Premier is not hating on that artist you like, but if he or she is wack… Oh well.

That sounds harsh. Preem explains it better. How he has always been, what he is into nowadays and more in the sit-down above.

A documentary with Jay Z and Nas is in the works, and DJ Premier also has a solo album—‘Last Session at 320’—on the way. He also discusses Desiigner, Dave East, Young M.A., and how he’s stayed relevant for multiple decades.

How Much Land Would It Take To Power The Entire USA With Solar Energy? (Video)

Hmmm… Solar-powered America for all… laid out plain and simple. Of course, none of this is as plain or simple as the video implies. But I like how it defies any doubters of the concept’s doability. The U.S. made it to the moon (or convinced the world it did, for any alternative history theorists out there) in seven years once President Kennedy set the country’s direction & ambitions toward the goal. This can be done!

But will it be?
