What if Superman grew up as a black boy in America? While staring in the face of racism, this story follows a young man’s journey as he comes to terms with his identity. As we extract events from America’s history and weave them with fictional undertones, we examine the truth behind his mother’s legacy, his […]
Earl Lloyd the first African American player in the NBA in 1950, passed today at the age of 86. He paved the way for many others after him. Thank you for your contributions.
The other day I read that a “Different World” is coming to Netflix….. FINALLY! I was a surprised because with the recent allegations that Bill Cosby has experienced I assumed eventually everything with his name attached to it would catch stray shots; Fat Albert, Pudding Pops, ugly sweaters, and A Different World. However, I was happily […]
The other night as I sat in the bed with my wife and watched the press conference, conducted by Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch, I had a feeling that when ole boy finished I would have the pissed off face. As Mr. McCulloch began his soliloquy I could tell that all he was doing was trying to […]
Can somebody please tell Raven Symone that she is a color. Can someone also explain to her that she is of African descent, even if she doesn’t know from where exactly. And that unfortunately the world sees her as a color. Yesterday I caught a clip of Raven explaining to Oprah that she no longer […]
*The opinions expressed in this article does not reflect the opinions of UML* This morning I woke up to my newsfeed humming about how St. Louis was off the chain. I quickly fired up the laptop and saw exclusive footage, however they could have shown me footage from 1992 or 1967 or 1965 it all […]
In about 30 days your boy Danny P (The P stands for Poitier) Ocean will be jumping the broom!! Who woulda thunk? Not I. I took pride for years in the fact that I was the last of the playboys. While all my friends fell off one by one like roaches getting sprayed with Raid, […]
After a few weeks Don Lemon has finally responded to Russell Simmons’ letter about Lemon’s 5 point plan. I was wondering would Lemon take the time to discuss Uncle Rush, or would he just let the flack slide off of his back. And he did respond Moguls, and he had a few good points I […]
Russell Simmons like millions of others took offense to the 5 point plan that Don Lemon recently laid out for African Americans. The Mogul suggested that Lemon reads the letter before taking to air this weekend. Here is what Uncle Rush had to say. Dear Don, I got a chance to see what you said […]
Mr. Don Lemon sounds like a cat who doesn’t really know what’s going on in the community. Or rather I say…. he doesn’t understand the root of the problems in the African-American communities. His “No Talking Points” segment reminded me of the grumpy ass cousin who always had it all trying to tell his family […]
Money is truly not a ‘thang’ to a baller like Oprah Winfrey. Oprah is donating $12 million dead guys to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. The gift is the largest donation to the Smithsonian ever. As a thank you a 350 seat theater will be named in her honor. “I […]
If you don’t know about them….. Learn your history!
So apparently a Black couple wanted to get married in an all-white church in Mississippi. They had the date set, sent out invitations, and all of that. However at the last minute, the church’s pastor told them that it was a no go. Despite sending out invitations and setting a date, a black couple in […]
Let me make this clear off top…. I am not an Eric Benet fan. Nothing against dude at all, but he just ain’t what I would pop in when it is chill time with my lady friend. It could be possible that my lack of interest goes back to the fact that the homie used […]
George Lucas stopped by the Daily Show to discuss his upcoming project Red Tails, and how Hollywood stayed away from it due to it’s all black cast. How many of you plan on checking this out opening weekend?
My girlfriend is a sucker for holiday movies. Every season she pops in the same dvd’s or watches the same Lifetime movies as she did the day before. I wouldn’t be surprised if she could provide the captions to some of the flicks. The other night she popped in the movie “This Christmas” with Chris Brown and […]
In a recent interview with Pride magazine, Thandie Newton expressed her anger with how her and other African-American women have been left off the cover. “Don’t get me started on black people being on the cover on big magazines. It’s so preposterous. I mean, I’ve been on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar four times; […]
Bounce TV is coming September 26th to a local channel near you. What is so good about Bounce TV you ask? Well it is the first over-the-air Black network. We have other channels catered to African-Americans, but none of them are free. And for the love of JJ Evans, I hope this network is the […]
