“Do you support ISIS?” There wasn’t malice when that question was asked. It was my Tinder date’s genuine curiosity that prompted it. She was a White woman from somewhere in the center of Pennsylvania, near where chocolate is made, and she’d never interacted an Arab-American, let alone one with a Muslim name, outside of her neighborhood bodega.

But in some Republican-controlled states, access to voting is becoming less and less equal as new, so-called “Voter ID” laws disproportionately affect the poor, the elderly, African-Americans, and Latinos.

Melissa McCarthy and Kanye West may have been the host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live this week but they, like everyone else on the planet, were overshadowed by The Queen Bee herself, Beyoncé.

If you were in a coma on Sunday then you were the only person in the world to not catch Beyoncé’s performance of her new, racially-charged single “Formation” during Super Bowl 50’s halftime show. Some idiots, like the folks over at Fox News, hated it. The Daily Show with Trevor Noah‘s Jessica Williams LOVED. IT. And pretty much tells Conservatives to go fuck themselves. Anyway, enjoy Beyoncé’s hot video for “Formation” for the one millionth time: The DailyRead More →
