The other day I made a joke to one of my coworkers about 40's and she had no idea what I was talking about. I always think really hard when someone doesn't get my jokes, and it made me realize that the 40-ounce beverage, and malt liquor in general, has somehow become a distinctly black phenomenon that is difficult for foreigners to fully grasp. But how did American black folks become the key market for consumption of this drink?

Leon’s appearance as a spooky Jesus-type figure in Madonna’s “Like A Prayer” video back in 1989 was partially responsible for my sexual awakening. I thought, “Oooh! He’s cute…but more than cute…I don’t know the word for it (“hot”) or these …

"What, Me Snub?"R.I.P. Roscoe Lee Browne
This has been a banner week for the black bourgeoisie - not only were we finally allowed to upgrade Bob Johnson from bourgie to an official "house negro," once we heard that Akon lied about his extended stay in jail and "only" has one felony, we had the chance to ask ourselves "how is any number of felonies or any time upstate an "only"?
