Our coveted children’s show on PBS has taught us many things over the years, but now that times are changing, so is some of the show’s educational focus.
Sesame Street remains the leader in childhood educational programming as they have maintained their mission to reach every child that watches the show. They became trailblazers when they introduced Kami, the character with HIV, and explored the topics of deployment, divorce, and now incarceration. The show welcomes a new character, Alex, whose father is in jail. As he copes with his father’s absence, the Sesame Street family embraces him, according to the International Business Times. (more…)

Jimmy Kimmel is known for his movie spoofs, giving Oprah advice on her shows for OWN, and his notorious spoofing of many others. But, now he’s moving in on the music business…and he gets hurt!
Robin Thicke’s new single “Blurred Lines” hit the Billboard at #1 and has over a million hits for the video. The track features Pharrell and the video features both Thicke and Pharrell with several scantily clad women having fun skipping and frolicking to the beat. (more…)

In May, the EURweb reported on the biracial Cheerios commercial that caused such an uproar among the nation’s racists that General Mills had to remove the comments section on the YouTube video.
Well, the ignorant losers that thought that this endearing commercial was vile and disturbing because a black man had fathered an absolutely beautiful daughter with a white woman, are in for a treat. There has been a commercial created to replace the original commercial that caused the outrage. (more…)

We’ve been celebrating Black Music Month with exceptional artists from all America and overseas, but nothing we’ve seen has prepared us for the talent of the man you are about to experience.
Travis Pratt is a resident of Tifton, Georgia and they should be proud. He performed for the judges on the NBC show America’s Got Talent and they were visibly blown away…as were we. The man is there to sing, but what comes out of his mouth was the most unexpected treat we’re sure they had never heard before. (more…)

It would seem that the porn industry would be riddled with STD’s, but they are serious about precautions. One case showed just how serious they are about those precautions.
Well known porn star Mr. Marcus, 42, whose real name is Jesse Spencer, has been sentenced to 30 days in prison for falsifying documents that proved he had syphilis last year. Apparently, these papers are required to show your overall health status before working on any films. But Spencer contends that he received a shot of penicillin from his doctor and he was told that he was not “contagious” even though he was diagnosed again for the disease eight days later. (more…)

The Young and the Restless will never be the same again without the incomparable Mrs. Katherine Chancellor, also known as Jeanne Cooper.
Cooper passed on Wednesday, May 8, and the Young and the Restless has had some difficulty with the agonizing task of bringing her character to a close after nearly 40 years and nearly the full run of the show. But according to the Inquisitr, they have decided to dedicate a 60-minute special tribute show to the icon tomorrow. (more…)

First Pepsi, now another company has fallen into the, obviously, tempting world of racist ads.
Uni-ball, known for their gel ink pens, thought it would be cute to take a punch at black prison inmates and their pen pal “homies” back home. The commercial for their pen makes little to no sense as they poke fun at the slang typed in Edwardian Script that, according to Uni-ball, calls for a British accent because it isn’t written using their pen.
