Gabby Douglas, 21-year old Olympian and Gold medalist, has always had a soft spot in Black America’s heart. She’s young, gifted, (Black), and poppin’ so that’s pretty much all we needed to get on board. Throughout her career she has faced a lot of criticism particularly about the way she looks. Her hair has been a topic of discussion on many occasions, especially on social media. Many white Twitter users attacked Gabby during the Olympics when she didn’t put her hand over her heart during the National Anthem. But in typical Black people fashion, we rushed to her defense, most of us banding together to build a protective shield around her. We were rooting for her, and hoping she’d ultimately kick ass at the Olympics, which she did.
The great prophet Puff Daddy P. Diddy Sean Combs warned us back in 2009 of the b*tchassness epidemic sweeping the nation-unfortunately, none of us took him seriously. Almost a decade later, here we are, glued to our phones, watching Chris Brown and Soulja Boy threaten each other across the interwebs. In our defense, who among us could’ve ever predicted n*ggas would take it this far? We’re sorry, Puff.
Engagement rings can be a touchy subject. Nobody really has any idea what the perfect engagement ring looks like, but what we DO know is that we hope nobody talks sh*t about it. Unfortunately, this week, things took a turn for the worst when a young lady tweeted a picture of her engagement ring to her followers.
The internet exploded last Friday when we learned that Russell Wilson and Ciara had gotten engaged. After having dated for nearly two years, the couple is finally ready to make it official. We’ve all been sitting around, watching their every move, wondering when Russell was going to pop the question. The two had been practicing celibacy, and the truth is, we all wondered when they’d give in to the sin of the flesh. As far as we know, there hasn’t been any skin to skin action. Now, they’re happily celebrating their engagement. And boooy it’s really pissing the F*ckboys of America off.
I don’t know if I need to say this-but…I think Crystal Wright is trash. Crystal Wright, better known as “GOPBlackChick” on Twitter, spends her days trolling the Black Lives Matter movement, and Black people in general, while pledging her allegiance to the lilliest white of her Twitter followers along with various politicians. She does this, of course, in an attempt to seem better educated and more sophisticated than other Black people-who undoubtedly in her mind are all violent, lowbrow, ruffians that she’d be better off distancing herself from. Frankly, I’m not sure how she can even see clearly enough to tweet all of these awful things with her head so far up white supremacy’s ass and all. But apparently-she makes do.
