Winning at SOTU: Miss Edith Childs. Losing: Kim Davis’ Mullet

The 2016 State of the Union Address (and last of the Obama Administration) was full of entertainment. Y’all know I watch some of these shows to be the lady on the stoop roasting everyone. This is why people miss me sometimes when I don’t live-tweet shows and events. You’re basically …

The Stages of What Happens When There’s Injustice Against Black People

Break Your Spirit Airlines is THE WORST! Like the Black Licorice of the Skies

I hate Spirit Airlines with the intensity of 1,000 African suns at high noon! You should know by now that Spirit Airlines is my archnemesis because they make Soul Plane look like Virgin Atlantic and I never let an opportunity to roast them to pieces pass me by. It’s in my Life …

Dear Lupita Nyong’o, Why Must You Slay Us Completely?

My newest celebrity crush is Lupita Nyong’o and if you have to ask me why, then we have nothing to talk about. I’m here to write her a love letter, because she is everything. I’m not even here to talk about her performance in 12 Years a Slave. No. I’m …

Everything’s Coming Up Mellie: Scandal Episode 307 Recap

For a show that is notorious for shocking us with a new development every episode to outdo itself is no small feat and Scandal did that with episode 7 of season 3. When it ended, I literally spent 20 minutes just mumbling to myself saying “OMG I CAN’T” at random …

Halloween Has a Blackface Issue and It’s a Racism Problem

Every year. EVERY GAHTDAMB YEAR, Halloween rolls around and we have to deal with folks who want to paint themselves black and brown for some costume. It is exhausting and enraging and absolutely overwhelming. It’s REALLY hard for me to write about it because I just wanna cuss and fight …

There’s Voodoo at Target Stores to Make You Spend All Your Money

Seriously. There has GOT to be some sort of voodoo at Target. That is the only explanation for how that place traps the most innocent people into these marathon shopping excursions that result in overdrawn bank accounts and hurting feet. First of all, going to Target on a Sunday is …
