Happy Friday, one and all. I am looking forward to the weekend because my birthday is on Sunday, but yes, yes, let’s get to the actual news. Lots to cover, so let’s get started:
We’re gearing up for the Super Bowl (meaning party food), which means we’re bookending this week with some sports news. Read More PoC News in America
All the news that Ladyblogland found interesting this past week.
Let’s start the week with what everyone is talking about: Viola Davis and How to Get Away With Murder.
I wish we didn’t publish as early as we did because last Sunday was a busy day for news!
Another week of some dramatic highs and lows in pop culture, news, and media — so let’s get to it!
From college funding to anti-discrimination to my using a weird word in a headline — it’s time for another sampler platter of news stories to see you into the weekend.
I don’t think I even need to describe the chaotic spectacle that happened last week when #CancelColbert started trending on Twitter. If you’re active on social media or you read blogs or maybe you watch The Colbert Report on a regular basis, then you might already be familiar with the unfortunate events that have been occurring due to a out-of-context tweet delivered by the @ColbertReport Twitter account, which has been deleted. What started as a misguided satirical joke, ultimately opened up pandora’s box for online organizers and hashtag activists to flood Twitter with their thoughts on Asian American activism, white savior politics, and on using POCs as the butt of jokes.
