Barack Obama Is Campaigning For Your Vote This November. And It Is More Important Than Ever (Video)

Heart jumped when you read the title, right? Well, of course, President Obama is not running for the White House; the November vote having no bearing on the U.S. Presidency at all. However, he does want every American to vote this Fall. And he tells you why it is so important to do so; even though it is not for him, or for a new President… It is for YOU!

If you still don’t think the midterms will affect you, Barack Obama is back to spell out just how important they are.

Especially reaching out to the youngest voters. So many did not show at the polls.

Comedian Katt Williams Speaks On Undeserved Fame Of Some Comedians And Roasts Co-Host Wanda Smith (Video)

On V-103’s Frank and Wanda In The Morning, Emmy-winning actor/comedian Katt Williams lit up the airwaves, sharing nuclear-hot takes on some of today’s top comedians, including Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Jerrod Carmichael, and Hannibal Buress. Watch as Williams calls some ugly, questions others’ talents, and suggests that race and colorism play roles in who Hollywood hires and why.

Yeah yeah. All that… but that’s not what made this thing go viral. When co-host Wanda Smith jumped over the fence and got in the middle of the melee. That’s when Katt’s scattered shots found focus. He got off all the other comedians and fanned all flame on Wanda. Too-hot-for-radio flames. So hot that [reportedly] the Smith men (her husband and sons) found Katt at a comedy club later and pulled a GUN on dude.

Wow. File this under ‘sticks and stones may break bones BUT HOW ABOUT WORDS ALMOST GETTING A COMIC SHOT OVER DISSING A MAN’S WIFE ON AIR!?

Watch. But only if you can stand the HEAT! Katt goes IN… smooth & vicious like. That said, he does make some good points…

(Hit the jump to see what Tiffany Haddish had to say via Twitter.)

Who knew it would be this hard? No, not reforming affordable healthcare… but pronouncing the word ‘anonymous’ (hahahaaa)! Check out this clip of folks giving it to the U.S. President – Colbert, President Obama, and a ‘troll’ at a Trump rally.

Food: McDonald’s In Mexico Has Tastier Menu Items Than In U.S. Franchises? (Video)

I’m saying though: A lot of this does look good af. Don’t think I would go as gaga over McD’s potato wedges. We can get good wedges in the states, just not at Mickey D’s. And I’m cool with that.

Comedian Bill Burr Believes A Bit More ‘Kid Smacking’ Might Lead To A Lot Less ‘Smack Talk’ From Kids Today (Video)

Okay, so Bill is roundabouts my age. And it shows in his rants (we old, and old-school man). it might get a li’l uncomfortable for some millennial new school parenting advocates out there to watch his clip, but here it is.

Bill is nostalgic for a time when parents hit their children and you didn’t have to believe all women.

Speaking On The State Of Hip-Hop, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels Raw & Uncensored (Video)

Okay. Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels just went the hell off! Rightfully so. Hip-Hop is definitely different today, but we had our bullsh!t going on back then, too. I do agree, wholeheartedly, that whatever was wrong then or now… was WRONG! Nonsense, violence, not a good policy (word to Heavy D and RIP).

Hip-Hop is our Nation, our Community and Culture. We ought to act accordingly. Listen to DMC.

Comedian Chelsea Handler Focuses On Political Activism (Video)

Interesting. Comedians, esp. when there’s an “easy target” in the White House, usually make fun of political folly. And Chelsea did that. But she is really moving into the ‘woke’ lane to ride that for a long while… at least until President Trump and his ilk are out.

Comedian-turned-activist Chelsea Handler shares the moment she recognized her White privilege and dishes on exactly how she wants to see Donald J. Trump humiliated.

Hilarious! Yeah, all of the trolls who flex that ‘keyboard courage’ on social media, see Remy Ma with your Twitter fingers and you could catch them hands… My vote for best part is definitely Remy’s response. But the whole video is awesome. Kudos to all featured for being good sports.

Do White People See Black Skin As A ‘Weapon’ To Be Feared? Host Erica Cobb Says ‘Yes’ (Video)

So… ‘weaponized skin tone.’ That is where we are. And Erica is right. You KNOW she is right. It’s just too bad that many who watch this are just going to see a ‘triggered’ Black woman and not even try to understand why.

While talking about the CVS employee “Coupon Carl,” Host Erica Cobb says Black skin is viewed as a weapon by many. She and Beau Davidson debate the role skin color plays in tense situations.
– Daily Blast LIVE

If you only watch this once, I understand. It can get monotonous; us treading the same race-related grounds with those who just don’t get it. But I watched this several times before I got the gumption to go see why Erica would opt out of potentially ‘heightened’ situations because it would be ‘better if her husband handled them.’

Hit the jump, and give yourself a pat on the back if you already knew what I found out when I Googled.

Damned shame it has to come to this. Like a Dave Chappelle punchline… She must know that, when sh!t goes down, “somebody’s gonna have to talk to the cops.”

Andre The ‘Black Nerd’ Reviews “Mission Impossible” Fallout (Video)

Wow! Well, if you take Andre’s word for it, there is no point during the play of “Mission Impossible: Fallout” that will allow for yawning or calling ‘bullsh*t!’

Andre of Black Nerd Comedy reviews Mission Impossible Fallout starring Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, Angela Bassett, Alec Baldwin, Rebecca Ferguson, and crazy Tom Cruise stunts that prove he either is not human, not made of bones, or just plain immortal.

Wow again… just realized that Ethan Hunt (Cruise) is fighting the movie ‘Superman’ (Cavill) in there! Extra butter on that popcorn!!

Being Sean: A New Food Experience

The homie Sean was out and about and needed to eat. The struggle was real but in the end… TRIUMPH… in the form of a new spot to find good food! Lean in and read up.

A couple of weeks ago Andrea and I were in her hometown of Eastman for a family member’s funeral. The funeral was at 11 am and the drive is about 2 ½ hours from our house. We left early in the morning and once we got there we grabbed a quick bite to eat attended the funeral and hopped back on I-75 and headed home. We stopped off in Macon to grab another quick bite, nothing huge, just something to hold us over til we got home. Andrea’s sister and a cousin were in the car so we decided to hit the Burger King and place our order. BIG MISTAKE…

Speak English For What? ‘Real’ Americans Should Be Speaking Natives’ Tongues, Or Spanish (Video)

So the cops can harass you for NOT bothering anyone, just because you (NOT speaking to them) are conversing in a language they do not understand? I’m asking… And above, someone answers.

Agree or agree to disagree, no motherf**king body can motherf**king tell you what language you must use to speak to each other; or use speaking an ‘unacceptable’ language to profile you. Plus, English does not have a strong an argument for being the ‘rightful’ language of ‘real’ Americans. Watch.

I gotta admit: I am down with ‘The Breakdown’ that Francis Maxwell delivers above and how he delivered that sh!t. Straight RAW! And I think I heard some ‘French’ in his rant, too (hahaa).
