Subway Rant Gone Wrong! (VIDEO)

(0) Comments | Posted April 2, 2014 | 8:08 AM


If you live in New York City, chances are you're used to seeing bazaar activities on the subway. From flashers to break dancers to preachers, getting some peace and quiet on the train is next to impossible.

And all too familiar is the offensive, homophobic subway ranter who projects their beliefs onto unsuspecting passengers and condemns them all to hell. Most of the time, no one says anything. (Rule of thumb: It's generally considered wise to not engage with loud strangers on the subway.) But sometimes, people protest and chaos ensues.

In this video, watch what happens when a religious ranter gets onto the wrong train...

A Gift for White People Celebrating Black History Month (VIDEO)

"Blackertone"

We're halfway through Black History Month and people are already asking "Why isn't there a White History Month?" Well, that's because we celebrate white history all year long!

February is just about the only time a black person can end a Facebook post with "by any means necessary," without seeming angry and rebellious.

Yes, it's during February -- the shortest month of the year -- that white America has graciously agreed to entertain our Afrocentric posts and race-related discussions ad nauseam and free of fear. (Well, mostly free of fear.)

This may come as a shocker to some, but Black History Month is actually for white people. Because chances are, if you're black and living in America, you are reminded of this fact every single day. Black History Month is for those who are unaware of, or have simply forgotten, just how many black people have contributed to weaving the fine fabric that is America! More importantly, it is for white people who wish to empathize with the black man's plight in America; our co-workers and comrades that yearn to gain a sincere understanding of what it means to be black in America today.

Well, for our curious white friends -- the ones who agree that 28 days of blackness just isn't enough -- to you I say, try Blackertone. With this suntan lotion, you can say no to white guilt and get affirmative on that action!

Happy Black History Month. And remember, "once you go Blackertone, you never go back a...

When Saturday Night Live added six new comedians to the cast this season, people were shocked that a black woman was absent from the roster. For the first time in SNL history, the show has gone more than five years without a black woman on its cast. Kenan Thompson...
