Trendsetting Blacks

These are people who I feel influenced the culture tremendously. The first era I wanted to highlight is the fifties:  Harry Belafonte   Our grandparents know him for his music, where he made Calypso mainstream.

Plus Size Baddies

Lizzo has an electrifying year, to say the least. It’s always been stated that you’re not popping unless you have haters. The hate that has been thrown against this woman is unfathomable. I don’t want to pull the race card but it’s clear on why she receives the disrespect. Adele was a plus-sized diva and she was never disrespected like this.   It’s pretty clear why Lizzo receives the hate that she does, she embodies everything that scares weak-minded people. She’s boisterous, confident, PHAT these characteristics aren’t commonly conveyed with plus size women. The narrative that is pushed all the time with plus size...

RIP John Witherspoon

Black Hollywood is heartbroken today after the loss of John Witherspoon. This man was considered everyone’s uncle especially for his iconic roles in classic cult black films like Friday, Boomerang, I Got the Hook Up, Boondocks, The Wayans Bros and countless others.  He left us with iconic quotes like “You win some, you lose some, but you live to fight to live another day”. This has to be the most famous monologue ever.    Witherspoon’s death hurts immensely but look at all the classics he left us with. He never retired this man worked until his death. Rest in power Mr. Witherspoon.
