WHY IT FELT LIKE CHRIS ROCK WAS LAUGHING AT US & NOT WITH US DURING HIS OPENING OSCAR MONOLOGUE



Last night (Feb. 28) comedian Chris Rock hosted the 88th Annual Academy Awards, and while we --Black people, assumed Chris would go on stage and represent for us, instead he trivialized our concerns regarding the Academy's issue with race. 

This was the second consecutive year that Black actors, directors, writers and producers were shut out of every Oscar category. Even in a movie like Creed where the majority of the cast and both writers and director were Black, somehow the only person nominated for an Oscar was the White actor --Sylvester Stallone. A similar situation also occurred with the Straight Outta Compton film.

Here's why it felt like Chris was laughing at us and not with us during his opening monologue.

In his message Zuckerberg called these racist acts "malicious" and explained to Facebook employees that "Black lives matter doesn't mean other lives don't matter -- it's simply asking that the [B]lack community also achieve[] the justice they deserve."

NEW MUSIC FIX: ELLA MAI'S "TIME" EP!



So I've been listening to this Time EP by a new artist named Ella Mai for little over a week, and since I ain't no stingy chick I thought I'd share this gem with you Chicks & Dicks.

It all started when The Fader tweeted about new music from an artist they dubbed the New Queen of the Breakup Anthem, and then I was all like 'bet!'

Anyway, I've been listening to Time ever since!
