Racial tensions seem to be at an all time high in America, with non stop racially-biased acts of violence causing major civil unrest.

As hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter permeate the internet, the divide between the black community and the police continues to grow.

But sometimes, the most powerful messages come from someone unexpected — in this case, a white middle school student from Atlanta, Georgia, whose slam poetry performance titled White Boy Privilege is taking the internet by storm!

Royce Mann performed his slam poem back in May after learning about white privilege in school. Two weeks ago, the video was shared on YouTube, and has recently become widely celebrated as the appropriate self-analysis by a white American in 2016.

In his poem, the 14-year-old admits that while he "loves" his privilege, it wasn't created by this generation — so, he invites other young white males to reject their privilege and share it with the rest of society.

Wendy Williams needs an education… and that's exactly what she's gonna give herself!

The daytime talk show host got into some major heat last week after saying some pretty ignorant remarks about Historically Black Colleges and the NAACP.

ICYMI, the Wendy Williams Show host spoke out on Jesse Williams' powerful BET Awards speech and essentially discredited the existence of HBCUs and the NAACP.

These flippant remarks rubbed most of Wendy's viewers the wrong way, with critics calling her uneducated — and even dubbing her the new Stacey Dash! That's gotta hurt!

Wendy's advertisers weren't fans of the contrarian grandstanding either, as she also reportedly lost her Chevrolet sponsorship over the controversial comments.

But it looks like Wendy is learning from her mistake, and is planning on educating herself with the help of one of her most vocal critics.

According to Love B. Scott, Williams is inviting

We guess the sh*t really did hit the fan…

Real Housewives of Dallas went down the drain on Sunday night as Andy Cohen hosted the first — but hopefully not last — reunion.

LeeAnne Locken and Marie Reyes were as crazy as ever, but the real drama came from surprise announcements from resident protagonist Brandi Redmond.

The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader spent the season being a breath of fresh air who wasn't scared of talking about poop and rolling her eyes at the charity society… but that seems to have gotten her in trouble!

For one thing, Brandi admitted that her toilet humor actually got her two daughters kicked out of their Christian school!!!

But that's not all — apparently, cornering her fit husband Bryan Redmond to talk about their relationship on camera made him want a divorce!

It seems like they were able to work things out since filming wrapped… but at least Stephanie Hollman will always be there to be the best BFF ever!

At least there's still some justice in the world!

Judge Aaron Persky potentially ruined his career when he sentenced the Stanford Rapist to only six months in jail… but now we're finally getting to see the repercussions of his actions.

First jurors refused to serve on the California judge's unrelated court cases, now we're hearing he has been removed from an upcoming rape case entirely!

Santa Clara County is about to try a sexual assault case where a San Jose nurse allegedly raped a patient while she was anesthetized, and the District Attorney announced Tuesday that he no longer believes Judge Persky is fit to serve!

While the decision to remove Persky from the hearing stemmed from a misdemeanor he threw out on Monday, we think it's safe to say D.A. Jeff Rosen didn't want a recreation of the Brock Turner disaster, saying:
