In the midst of the Everything, Everywhere, All At Once Oscar-spree, another movie made some waves last night when a new two-minute long trailer for the upcoming release of Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid aired, with Halle Bailey’s Ariel tail giving us some of the slap-action the awards show was lacking this year. And it seems like many movie-goers are excited to head to theaters when it comes out this May, but inevitably, there were also stank piles of human marine debris who are still livid that a black actress was cast as Ariel.
For many years the comic strip Dilbert has poked fun at office culture way before Steve Carrell became the world’s most lovably horrible boss in The Office. But while fans of the strip have been enjoying the satire, they should have been paying more attention to its creator Scott Adams, who has some very strong opinions about race relations in America. And his most recent commentary is causing many newspapers that carried the strip to drop him after claiming white folks need to stay far, far away from Black people since they are a hate group.
A couple of weeks ago, Buckingham Palace faced (yet another) racism scandal. On November 29, Ngozi Fulani, CEO of the charity Sistah Space, attended an event at Buckingam Palace. Ngozi says that ten minutes into the reception, THE QUEEN’S former lady-in-waiting and Prince William’s godmother, 83-year-old Lady Susan Hussey, approached her, moved her hair to see her name badge, and rudely interrogated her about where British Ngozi was “really from.” “What part of Africa are you from?” After Ngozi went public with her story, Buckingham Palace released a statement saying that “the individual concerned” was sorry and had resigned from her royal duties. Ngozi did some interviews about the incident, and while many supported her, she also got a lot of shit from Internet randos and British media outlets. Today, People reports that the palace announced that Lady Hussey and Ngozi had finally met “to address the incident.” According to this statement, Lady Hussey offered her “sincere apologies,” and Ngozi accepted.

We’re used to seeing comedian Eric André performing publicity stunts for laughs on a regular basis, but what he allegedly experienced at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta was not amusing at all. Eric claims back in 2021, as he walked the dreaded shaky corridor from the gate to the doors of the plane, he was stopped by two men. He probably thought to himself, “I don’t have time for autographs,” but unfortunately for Eric, neither did they. Instead, they stopped him for a quick search to see if he was carrying illegal drugs onto the flight. That’s when Eric’s Woke-O-Meter rang out louder than the bells of freedom, especially once he realized he was the only Black person around at the time. Now, he’s calling upon the power of the ancestors to help him sue the pants off of Clayton County Police Department for their blatant racial profiling.
Sesame Place Responds After Kelly Rowland And Many Others Call Out A Video Where A Character Snubs Black Children
Over at the Magic Kingdom, Mickey Mouse and his cohorts are diabolically cackling something extra because Disneyland or Disney World is not the theme park getting dragged today. The Sesame Street-themed amusement park Sesame Place in Pennsylvania has been accused of being a fun and happy place to be as long as you’re not a Black child after a video went viral of a character refusing to high-five two Black girls even though the character just high-fived a white girl and woman. And more videos came out. After getting shit from Kelly Rowland and many, many, many, many others, Sesame Place put out two statements that were brought to you by the letters S-P-I-N.
Today “In Here We Go Again” News: “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Star Moses Ingram Spoke Up About Receiving Racist Messages From Fans On Social Media
Baby Yoda, perhaps the only universally beloved character in the Star Wars universe, is played by a green puppet with a hand rammed up his ass. Yet, according to Deadline, Moses Ingram, the actor who plays Sith Inquisitor Reva Sevander on the new Star Wars show on Disney+, Obi-Wan Kenobi, has been on the receiving end of a slew of vicious attacks on social media. And I don’t think I need to tell you she’s not a wrinkled-up little Benjamin Button-looking motherfucker who can’t even open his eyes without somebody tweaking his nipple from the inside. Rather, Moses is a fully autonomous Black woman capable of a full range of emotion and movement. Slap a costume on her and she’s good to go, no batteries required. But since a shameful number of Star Wars fans are racist as hell, Moses went on Instagram live to let people know what kind of hateful messages she’s been receiving since the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi were released.
