Ava DuVernay has touched our hearts in so many ways after directing the Academy Award-winning film Selma, so her opinion is definitely influential. The famed director recently…
KRS-One once rapped about the “unconscious racist,” describing them thusly, “Not knowin’ they’re racist they invade your spaces/ They say, ‘I’m not a racist, I’m not a bigot’/Yet they allow it to go on and won’t admit it…” In a sketch from a new Comedy Central show called “Review” Forrest MacNeil (played by Andrew Daly) seeks to […]
It’s never easy trying to make a successful movie remake, but that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from cranking them out. Director Jose Padhila takes on the 1987 classic “RoboCop,” which starred Peter Weller as a fresh-faced street cop gunned down on his first day of duty, only to be resurrected as a fearsome human-machine hybrid created […]
With the exception of 2007’s “Pride” (based on real life swimming coach Jim Ellis) images of Blacks engaging in any kind of water sport are pitifully rare.

We have speculated long and hard; squinting closely at clips and cropped photos of a black girl lost to the porn industry. While Laurence Fishburne is still wrapping his brain around the thought of his daughter performing private acts for the public to see, we took the liberty in screening the sex vid, so you don’t have to ( “Hov […]
BP member mauda said “VERY INTERESTING FLICK. NOT JUST THE ALIEN PART BUT THE SCENARIOS, THE EVACUATIONS, NATIONAL EMERGENCIES, THE MILITARY OCCUPATION.” Tell us what you thought about the movie here. Join the debate.
It’s a safe assumption that there are no gray areas in Kanye West appreciation. Either you consider him a genius or you want to send him on a shopping spree with Sarah Palin using an an expired Amex Black card and a stack of I.O.U’s from MC Hammer. After listening to the leak of 808s […]
