Final Season For Anthony Bourdain’s “Parts Unknown” (Trailer)

Somewhere between numbing pain caused by the loss of Sean Price and the recent demise of Mac Miller lies the feeling of continued mourning for late travel & food enthusiast Anthony Bourdain. Got his final season’s trailer here, featuring his voice. Might wanna grab a tissue and some water before you press play. Things might get emotional hearing his voice one more time…

(Comedian W. Kamau Bell’s comments really bring it home, too.)

Comedy: Nikki Glaser Talks About Everything On Her Body That ‘Looks Crazy’… EVERYTHING (Video)

Yes. Even her glovebox. Something about Nikki does it for me in this clip (slinky black dress much?). She keeps talking that talk, and she’s gonna mess around and we gonna mess around and it might be a mess around here. Just saying.

Comedy/Politics: Stephen Colbert ‘Mops The Floor’ With President Trump & Is Floored By President Obama’s Latest Speech (Video)

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.

Last week two men made known their opinions on President Trump: Barack Obama in his speech at the University of Illinois, and the infamous “Plaid Shirt Guy” at Trump’s rally in Montana.

Many Black Kids Cannot Swim. Really. And Here Is Why… (Video)

Wow, that’s a real thing. All my family can swim. My Dad learned as a kid, self-taught, playing in the ‘crick’ (creek) down the road. My baby brother was swimming by the time he could walk. So, I just kinda dismissed such talk as broad generalization; no real fact-finding driving the claim. Well…

In 2014, the CDC found that an 11-year-old Black child is 10 times more likely to drown than a White child the same age. The notion that “Black people can’t swim” may sound like a stereotype, but it’s a real disparity and it’s rooted in a history of discriminatory access to swimming pools.

Again, wow. And damn.

Jim Carrey Kicks Some ‘Real Time’ Wisdom While Proudly Sporting New Nike Kicks (Video)

I keep hearing this… “Canadians are so nice. Canadians are so nice.”
They can be nice, because they have healthcare!
Jim Carrey

Mic dropped!

Tell you what: Jim Carrey just did it big for Nike. Fancy a bit of bold activism with your current fashion? Carrey’s your model then. Plopped right down on the set of “Real Time with Bill Maher” and showed the business world how Nike gets what amounts to a bold shoe commerical on ad-free HBO!

Actor and comedian Jim Carrey joins Bill and his guests – David Axelrod, Michelle Goldberg, and former Rep. Charlie Dent – on the Real Time panel.
– Real Time with Bill Maher

Shoe game dope. And par for the course when you get Jim Carrey on nowadays, you get wisdom mixed in with the whimsical. Great segment!

Season 3 Premiere Of Vice’s Skateboard Culture Docuseries: ‘King Of The Road’ (Full Episode) [Video]

CRAAAZY! I just stumbled across this. Watched. Can’t say I fully understood, but I was fully engaged. Folks on a skate trip of a lifetime, shredding rails, shedding blood, and other gnarly and ‘bro’ stuff… all while trying to win bragging rights (and MONEY) as ‘Kings Of The Road.’ Just winning at life, man. This crazy life.

The race starts in Reno with a relay. Evan crushes while Glick gets stage fright. The Books are handed out and Foundation ends the night with a tender moment at a wedding chapel.

Trevor Noah Talks With A Guest Who Gets ‘Post-Checked’ By TSA Even After He ‘Pre-Checks’ (Video)

‘Between the Scenes’ clips from The Daily Show are funny most times, but I always get some insight from watching them. I mean, sure this man’s name will trigger the authorities’ suspicions… but c’mon son.

Trevor chats with an audience member who had to change his name after 9/11.

At least we can kinda laugh at it.

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.

See How Replica Sneakers Made In China Make It Into The Hands Of U.S. Buyers (HBO)

Wow! The fiends NEED the latest Yeezys and Jordans like this bad? The fake kick market is kicking this hard. Gotta be if there is a black market with movers in it like Chan, right? Let VICE News tell it…

After the sun sets in Putian, thousands of bikes carrying fake sneakers hit the streets.

The lace-up black market is no secret in Putian, and it’s where you can find Chan, a vendor with a knack for getting high-quality pairs off the streets and into the hands of hypebeasts on the other side of the globe.

Comedy: Rap Stars Read ‘Mean Tweets’ From Fans (Video)

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.”
