If you aren’t familiar with “Black Twitter”, you’re missing out. There’s really nowhere else on the Internet where you can find such a dynamic group of young (and not so young) Black folk, sharing thoughts on everything from police brutality and politics to what it means to “grow up Black.” So it was really no surprise when we attracted the (unwanted) attention of the LA Times.

If you ask me, this show should be called the “Joseline and Stevie Show”, because it looks like everybody else is STRUGGLING for a story line…but hopefully they’ll come with something new and exciting this season.
Remember that time Kanye called himself “Yeezus”, and some people shat their pants, and some people thought it was a really clever idea? Well the people who thought it was a really clever idea decided to take things a step further by replacing God’s name with Kanye’s in the very first “Book of Yeezus.”
