Betsy DeVos + 2017 Oscar Snafu + LHHATL Super Trailer + More!

Posted on Mar 2 2017 - 10:41am by Oliver Twixt


Is it me or does it seem as if 2017 is showing it’s natural ass. So much as happened this week enough to last us all for a life time. I do not know about you but it makes me feel great to be living amongst all of this pop culture gold right now. Let us jump right into it.

President Donald Trump has revealed that he will not be present at the 2017 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, breaking a 36 year long presidential tradition. Why do you think this is? I believe it is a smart way for him to avoid dealing with negative press up close and personal.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos has ruffled the feathers of all across the nation. After meeting with HBCU Presidents with Donald Trump, she issues a statement stating that historically black colleges and universities “real pioneers” of school choice. So obviously Miss Betsy was too busy enjoying antebellum life on the plantation to the point that she was too distracted from all the discrimination black faced in regards to public education. What are you thoughts? Please, not all at once.

The super trailer for Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta season 6 has been released. The main thing that stuck out to me was Kirk & Rasheeda’s infidelity issues. Allegedly, Kirk has not only cheated on the female rapper, but has also had a baby. Marital issues are a touchy matter for all involved but since they are brave enough to broadcast it on TV, what are your thoughts. Should Rasheeda stay or go?

Horror-comedy movie ‘Get Out’, directed by Jordan Peele and starring Daniel Kaluuya, has smashed the box office, critics, and audiences.  I strongly suggest everyone to go check this movie out. Beyond the crazy plot twists, there lies present a serious social commentary on cultural appropriation.

Lauren London trended on Twitter this week for pictures of her showcasing post-pregnancy weight. What are your thoughts on the critique of her appearance. And of course, Xscape, is back together again. I know Funky Dineva is somewhere playing out ‘Understanding’ and ‘You’re My Little Secret’.
