Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteBeyonceTwitterTinasheControversySocial Issues

Tinashe is getting heat!

Tinashe is trending on Twitter Tuesday, but not for the reasons she might like!

Following an interview with The Guardian, the Flame singer raised more than just eyebrows after speaking her thoughts on being biracial and the colorism in the black community.

The half Danish and Zimbabwean artist revealed she's completely aware her career has stalled while her album Joyride still has yet to be released. Attributing it to sexism and how it's seen as there can only being a couple of successful black female artists at a time:

"Recently, my cousin was with a friend of a friend, who was in high school, and she was like: ‘I'm a fan of Kehlani,' but in a way that was like, ‘So I can't be a fan of Tinashe, too.' Then my friend posed the question, ‘Why not be a fan of both?' It's kind of like sport; people feel like they have to pick a side. There are hundreds of [male] rappers that all look the same, that sound the same, but if you're a black woman, you're either Beyoncé or Rihanna. It's very, very strange."

But what really had Twitter heated were her thoughts on not fitting in:

Rachel Dolezal Is Living On Food Stamps, Jobless, And Nearly Homeless Two Years After Her Scandal

no title

This is a tough one — do you feel sorry for Rachel Dolezal?

Or did she create her own issues with that almost unbelievable controversy two years ago when it came to light she was a white woman pretending to be black?

Now two years after her memorable and almost surreal scandal broke, Dolezal is nearly homeless, unable to find any kind of work, and living off food stamps.

And no, she still doesn't believe she did anything wrong.

There's a fascinating piece up over at The Guardian that goes deep on Dolezal, where she is today, what she's been going through the last two years, and what she thinks about the scandal she created for the NAACP.

Dolezal seems completely uninterested in taking any responsibility for causing her own scandal or owning up to her flat-out lie about being black, as she indicated in telling the publication this (below):

Oh, Donald Trump, why does this not surprise us?

A North Carolina man named C.J. Cary has loved The Donald for years — and so when Trump announced his candidacy for President last year, the African-American Cary got excited.

Filed under: PolitikDonald Trump

After nominees Ted Cruz and John Kasich officially suspended their campaigns this week, Donald Trump is now left as the presumptive nominee of the GOP.

And if Republicans were distancing themselves from the 2016 presidential race before, now they're avoiding the election like the plague!

According to reports, neither former president from the Bush family — George H.W. Bush or his son George W. Bush — will endorse a candidate for presidency this election.

And you better believe that's a snub to Trump!

Hillary Clinton & NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio's Racial Humor Offends — See The Awkward Moment!

Filed under: Oops!PolitikHillary ClintonNew YorkControversy

Even though it was clearly a joke… this was not a smart thing to do.

Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were taking part in a black tie event in front of journalists and politicos on Saturday in the city, when they made a joke that just should never have been written.

The mayor — who officially endorsed Clinton and then teased her about how long it took — stepped up to the mic in front of Hamilton cast member Leslie Odom Jr., and decided that would be the perfect time to make a joke about… 'colored people'?!

Because it took de Blasio so long to endorse Clinton, he apparently thought it'd be a good day to make a joke about endorsing her on "C.P. time."

Of course, that is most commonly short for "colored people's time," a stereotype that has perpetuated about African-Americans being lazy and late to appointments.

He and Clinton played it off in the moment with a bad joke — ch-ch-check out how it goes down (below) — but the damage was done:

It looks like Melissa Harris-Perry has a resolution in her ongoing battle with MSNBC, but it's not exactly what she wanted.

Frustrated by weeks of being pre-empted for election coverage, Harris-Perry fired off an open letter to her staff late last week about how, even though MSNBC would have allowed her back on air over the weekend, she wasn't going to cave.

The letter, which blamed MSNBC execs for keeping her off the air without a clear reason or explanation, read in part (below):
