    TUSKEGEE, AL (WSFA) -

    Three Tuskegee University grads are going to be living life on TV this Summer.

    The three grads will be part of the new Animal Planet TV series “The Vet Life”, which will premiere on June 4 at 8 p.m.

    The show follows veterinarians Dr. Diarra Blue, Dr. Aubrey Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne, balancing their newly-opened animal hospital with family life.

    According to an Animal Planet press release, the doctors have been friends since attending Tuskegee University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. They began their careers in Las Vegas, before they decided to open their Texas-based practice Cy-Fair Animal Hospital in 2015.

    The series captures the doctor's lives as they juggle running a new business while managing their family life filled with spouses, parents, in-laws, children, pets and friends, as well as their intense moments saving the lives of animals at their clinic, the Animal Planet website states.

    A campus viewing of the new series is scheduled for June 2 at Tuskegee University.

    I’m not a big Kevin Hart fan. Not for awhile. I used to be, though. I’ve never met the guy but I used to be genuinely proud of him and his success. But then my admiration for him turned off like a light switch five years ago. Whatever. Many people still are, especially Black people.

    So it’s not surprising that many of them immediately went to Hart’s defense once the so-called “Gay Mafia” started digging up his old homophobic tweets after it was announced that he would host the 2019 Academy Awards.

    What is surprising is the hypocrisy in it.

    If in an alternate universe, Kevin Hart were “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” comedian Kevin James and people found dozens of racists tweets from 2009-2013, I highly doubt these same Black people would be as defensive for someone “evolving” so slowly and viciously.

    For those not aware of the kinds of things Hart tweeted in the past, here are some “comedy gems” from him:

    [​IMG]

    DtreZt4XgAI5xV9.jpg

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    His history of homophobic rhetoric on Twitter is so extensive that a journalist made a gif of the search that scrolls as long a dropped roll of toilet paper.



    For all of you that are regular readers of the site, you may remember that in 2013, five years ago, I wrote an extensive essay on how homophobic many Black comedians were in general entitled, The Brunt of the Joke: Black Comedy & Homophobia. Here's an excerpt:

    Black comedians, on the other hand, HATE gay people. They seem to despise them. True there are exceptions like The Wayans, Dave Chappelle and a few others. But for the most part, when you see “gay” depicted in black comedy it's seen as something disgusting, abnormal, hidden and kept on the “down low”. From Eddie Murphy to Martin Lawrence to The Kings of Comedy… Homosexuality is not made fun of like white comedians where it's seen as a “wink-wink” kind of thing. It's depicted as gross, disgusting and “Ewww, nigga you gay, get away from me.”

    Take one of my favorite comedians, Kevin Hart. Watching his stand up comedy film, Let Me Explain, with a male date we initially laughed when Hart went into the “gay” section of his act. Very quickly it devolved into borderline abuse and homophobia.

    Kevin Hart started the jokes with the statement, “One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay.” Whoa. Okay, I initially thought he was going to go into a bit about his fearing the pressures his son would have to face from society for his sexuality. But that was all wishful thinking.

    Nope, Kevin feared his son becoming a flaming faggot. Oh, he tried to cover himself by saying, “I’m not homophobic” but they all do that. That’s like when a racist says, “I’m not a racist” right before he tells a “black-man-is-a-spear-chucker” joke. Saying, “I’m not a rapist” right before you forcefully violate a woman doesn’t make it so.



    That was five years ago. And that essay didn’t even include the homophobic tweets, which are arguably worse than that stand-up comedy joke.

    When asked about repeating the above homophobic joke and others in a 2015 Rolling Stone interview, Hart said:

    “It’s about my fear. I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently,” he said. “I wouldn’t tell that joke today, because when I said it, the times weren’t as sensitive as they are now. I think we love to make big deals out of things that aren’t necessarily big deals, because we can. These things become public spectacles. So why set yourself up for failure?”
    Really? How about saying, “I realized that my words and jokes were hurtful to some of my fans and my job is to make people laugh, not cry or feel bad about themselves.”

    Nope. He blamed the audience for being “sensitive.”

    Admittedly, times have definitely changed. The culture in general is more sensitive to racism, misogyny, homophobia, sexual assault and harassment, etc. But I would argue that isn’t a bad thing. I want to live in a world where bigots can’t hide behind “it’s comedy, relax” as an excuse to offend people who are different.

    Even when the controversy of his old tweets came up, Hart seems to double-down on his dismissiveness about people’s reaction to his words saying, “Stop looking for reasons to be negative. If u want to search my history or my past and anger yourselves with what u find that is fine with me.”



    Then, when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences supposedly reached out to Hart and asked him to apologize for the old tweets, he defiantly chose to decline to apologize:



    Again, imagine if this were a Caucasian comedian referring to racists jokes and old tweets. Or another celebrity with 66 million Instagram followers referring to derogatory comments about women from 2009-2012. The woke folks on Black Twitter would have already created all kinds of memes and gifs destroying that person’s character.

    Guess how many Black Twitter memes we’ve seen about Kevin Hart being homophobic so far?

    [​IMG]

    As I said in the essay from 2013, it’s not about making comedy bland where no groups of people are teased or mocked. I wrote this back then to clarify:

    Gay jokes can be funny. Really funny actually. As stereotypical as it was, the Men on Film sketches from In Living Color were really funny. And white stand up comedians like Louis C. K. and others make Gay jokes an art form.

    The difference between white comedians and black comedians though is the obvious disdain and fear black men have for Gays. Seriously, black male comedians are very hateful to Gays in their comedy. There’s a very fine line walked in whats “just a joke” vs “I really hate these faggot mothafuckas.”

    I recently watched the Comedy Central Roast of actor James Franco. It featured the likes of Seth Rogan, Jonah Hill, Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) and Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) mocking James Franco for the ever flowing rumors of his sexuality. There were tons of Gay jokes. The difference here is that the gay jokes were vulgar yet not insulting in some weird way. Many of the white comedians seemed to low-key compliment Franco for being able to pull off Bisexuality with his stunning good looks. But the sheer number of Gay jokes became so overwhelming that Indian-American comedian Aziz Ansari had to comment:



    Even still, the jokes weren’t super offensive. Many of the comedians mocked Franco’s rumored sexuality by insinuating that they themselves had been penetrated by and/or had performed oral sex on the delicious looking actor. Caucasian humor…you gotta love it. Very self deprecating and ironic.

    Again, I can take a joke. Especially a gay joke that I can relate to…I’ve seen MANY straight white comedians make gay jokes where they imply they are gay themselves just for the sake comedy. That is totally fine. It’s seen as “white boy humor.” But this is a key point. Another observation I’ve made is the black comedians who primarily interact with white people seem to be less judgmental when it comes to homosexuality.

    Take one of our favorite actor/rappers Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino). Before he landed his role on the NBC comedy Community, he performed as the sole Black American with the Derrick Comedy sketch comedy crew. Here’s one of their hilariously creative “gay -themed” sketches from 6 years ago spoofing the film “Memento”.



    Dude! Hilarious (especially if you’ve seen the movie that they are spoofing).

    Donald Glover’s character doesn’t purport to love engaging in a gay act, but you still don’t feel the weird disgusted aversion that the aforementioned black comedy actors display even merely pretending to slightly engage in gay intimacy.

    So clearly I’m not accusing ALL black comedians of homophobia. But enough of them are that if I take a male date to a comedy club, It's a good chance that we’ll hear more than a few extremely homophobic gay jokes. Hell, we may even be singled out by the comedian on stage for being two attractive men sitting at a table alone together, sharing a basket of wings and fries.
    Again, this was five fuckin’ years ago. I tried to tell y’all.

    But now, after flat out refusing to apologize…Kevin Hart has apologized for the old tweets and has stepped down from hosting the 2019 Academy Awards. Clearly this is a situation where Disney and ABC (the network which airs the Oscars) forced him out. Remember that ABC (owned by Disney) fired both James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy director) and Roseanne Barr for arguably far less offensive tweets. If not less offensive, at the least their tweets were less plentiful. So the writing was on the wall.

    I can guarantee that we’ll STILL see tons of Black people defending Hart as a victim.

    We’ll even see many Black Gay People defending Hart.

    Gay people and their self-defense to bigotry ironically doesn’t matter to Black people. I’m still not even sure if Gay People in general matter to Black People at all.

    This is why we had to publish a 2015 essay entitled, “If I’m Killed by the Police, Will My Black Gay Life Matter?”

    Regardless, when all is said and done, we’re talking about the Oscars. This is an awards show that, just this year, saw the lowest ratings in the history of the telecast. More people went to see Kevin Hart in “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and “Central Intelligence” than the number of people who watched the 2018 Academy Awards.

    So maybe he’s right to double down on gay jokes. He clearly is doing just fine making “straight” movies where Dwayne Johnson is constantly cradling him in his muscular arms.

    This is very true...I know a dude in ATL from Africa who installs cable television...he makes VERY good money, has his own house & car, travels often and has a very nice body and active gay social life...He may not have a "sexy" job but he's still very "sexy" and a catch (that I don't want for other reasons, but that's besides the point). I don't think he even went to a traditional college but he's doing better than people I know who did.

    It's complicated
    Most people, who are defending Kevin, are doing so under the guise that he has already apologized profusely for his tweets. The thinking is why should he have to keep apologizing for something he tweeted years ago. Let the main grow and move on. The problem I have with this train of thought is that I don't recall, nor can I find, a heart-felt APOLOGY for the offensive tweets. His apologies are half-hearted and accusatory to people he feels are being overly sensitive.

    On a group chat with some friends of mine, a black and gay friend texted, "You know them white gays are ruthless. They got him booted." Even black gay people are pointing the finger at white gays instead of questioning the sincerity of Kevin's apologies. Sometimes I feel like black gay men have been so abused, we feel we have no choice but to stay with our abusers(black straight people) out of mere survival, much the way an abused woman will continue to stay with and make excuses for her abusive partner. Perhaps black gay men don't want to be viewed as traitors for joining with white people in attacking a successful black man. Personally, I don't find Kevin Hart funny and don't recall every shelling out money to see one of his films so I don't care much about the man as a comedian. I hope that this is a lesson to the black community that not everyone is going to partake in the offensive homophobia displayed by black comedians.

    I think a lot of things "black folks don't" do is they are worried about what other black folks think.

    We don't want to be embarrassed. For example, back in 2001, I was all about Dance Dance Revolution. I played the sh!t out of that game. Even know if I stumble across a machine, I have to stick in some quarters.

    Well back when it was "sweeping the nation" I remember several black people saying they were too embarrassed to play it or it was for "them Chinese" and "geeks". TF? I was a fully grown man who couldn't care less.

    Life is about experienceing different things and sometimes we have to get out of our boxes and comfort zones to grow and learn. There's several things that if I had available to me when younger, I'd be interested in. Gymnastics, ice hockey, rugby, for examples. But it doesn't snow in the south and there's only ice rinks in the larger southern cities, gymnastics is basically the same. Too old for that now but I wouldn't be scared of an adult rugby league. And I at least known how to ice skate... Which is something else "black folks don't".

    “Tough Love,” a new non-gay series released by Black & Sexy TV, reveals what’s been missing from Black Gay Web Series for all these years.

    To be honest, besides being well made, there’s nothing very original about this series by Caleb Davis and Roni Simpson. Check out the official synopsis:

    “A Web Series about Six millennials experiencing the struggles of life, relationships and love in NYC.”

    Yo, it’s like they didn’t even try. I could throw a rock out of any random brownstone in Brooklyn and hit a random film crew filming a series/movie with the exact same plot.

    I’m actually not even mad at it, though. Why reinvent the wheel if the goal is to just tell everyday stories about everyday people in relationships?

    [​IMG]

    Personally, I’m a little bored with Black content creators sticking to the tried & true “relationship drama” stories. But these web series are popular for a reason: People like to see characters and situations that they can identify with.

    It’s that simple. And while watching “Tough Love” I realized that is what has been missing from Black Gay Web Series.

    From “About Him” to “Freefall” to “Triangle,” most gay web series lack any depiction of normality. Everyday life.

    Every gay story seems to be about Sex, Late Night Hookups, Melodrama, Drug Use, More Sex, Shade and Random Reasons For The Actors To Get Naked.

    [​IMG]

    Not only are Black Gay Web Series not interested in normal life, they perpetuate the misguided narrative that gay men are sexual deviants. True, some gay men are obsessed with sex, just like most men in general, but web series like those created by Black & Sexy TV show life beyond just “getting a nut.”

    Check out the trailer for “Tough Love”:



    Now watch the trailer for “About Him,” the current most popular Black Gay Web Series:


    See the difference? Both series are about sex and relationships. But one shows the real life challenges that come with maintaining healthy (or unhealthy) sexual lives as young adults…the other shows what it would be like to get a blow job from your brother’s best friend while he’s in the very next room.

    [​IMG]

    The recent success of the feature film “Moonlight” should be a sign to Black Gay Filmmakers that they do not have to resort to softcore porn to get viewers and fans.Across the board, people have said they loved “Moonlight” because they can relate to the character of Chiron in so many different ways. A lot of fans have said they loved the third act the most, which just features men on a date, no sex at all.

    [​IMG]

    And that film was made by a heterosexual man. Gay men should be telling our authentic stories. This is no different than a White Director making Black films, while acceptable, it would be nice to see a Black Filmmaker at the helm. Without the need to resort to porn.

    Question to Black Gay Filmmakers: Which honor would they prefer? An Academy Award Nomination…or most viewed Myvidster Video? The latter, it would seem.

    Shows like “Tough Love” have their fair share of eye candy and sex scenes, but they are earned with strong character development and motivations. We’re not just waiting to see the next sex scene or when the actors will get naked. We’re waiting to see how they maneuver through everyday life.

    [​IMG]

    That is what’s missing from our Black Gay Web Series: Everyday life. Relatable Characters and Situations. Engaging Drama not Melodrama. Romance not Foreplay. Authenticity not Pornography.

    Usually I don't post things from Shea Butter related websites but I thought this was cool.

    Between Moonlight’s win and Tracee Ellis Ross going Peak Tracee Ellis Ross with her win and her speech and her joy and her dress (and her dress and her dress and her dress) and Issa Rae not winning (yet) but reminding us that we probably should get used to seeing her at these types of events and nominated for those types of awards and Viola Davis teaching America that we’ve been doing collard greens wrong this entire time and us (Black people) turning the repeated Hidden Fences gaffes into a thing, last night’s Golden Globes had quite a few candidates for the Blackest Thing that ever happened this week. Including, of course, Meryl Streep using her privilege and her position to make a room full of White people quite uncomfortable, which might have been the Blackest thing a White person has done in public since Mike Dean produced The Diary.

    [​IMG]

    But while Streep’s speech was an example of what we need White people to do to prevent Trumpian politics to be some sort of normalized status quo, the embrace between Brian Tyree Henry and Keith Stanfield — ecstatic and vulnerable and visibly verklempt while watching Donald Glover accept his award for Best Actor (Television Series Musical or Comedy) — is an example of what we need to do to survive and thrive over these next four years.

    It’s apropos that the image of these two men hugging each other would come a week after two of the biggest stories in pop culture were the levels to the fallout from Kim Burrell’s homophobic comments and the analog, Taco-Bell-beef beef between Soulja Boy and Chris Brown. Because you couldn’t find two better stories to articulate the type of toxic, regressive, and just plain fucking dangerous mores and beliefs about sexuality and masculinity that need to be taken out to a barn and shot in the fucking face, and you can’t find a better image to exemplify the type of love and embrace that needs to be loved and embraced than what Henry and Stanfield did last night. When I saw those two men — those friends and colleagues celebrating their friend and colleague — I saw two men who were free. Free to enjoy, embrace, and encourage each other without any care of how it might be interpreted. Free to just be, and willing to fight for that freedom. Free to be in love with your friend, a person who happens to be a man, with a love that reflects the ideal of genuine platonic love, which is to “inspire the mind and the soul and direct one’s attention to spiritual things.” Ultimately, this was the progressive evolution and distillation of “fuck them other niggas cause I’m down with my niggas.

    And this is our path. Of course, we’ll continue to protest and disrupt and defend and protect and battle and bleed. But this is it. This is the type of love that’s worth fighting for to cultivate, shield, and maintain. This is who we need to be with each other. With a love that’s not unconditional — you need to earn this shit to receive it — but is unencumbered and unconcerned when it’s earned, given, and received.

    This Embrace Between Brian Tyree Henry and Keith Stanfield Is The Blackest Thing That Ever Happened This Week | VSB

    I'm disappointed. Dude could have easily gave a half ass apology and moved on...but naw...he wants to double down.

    I agree folk are ridiculously over sensitive, whats often missed though in the conversation (not on this site) is the real disdain for MALE homosexuality.

    Maybe I missed something but the code switch to me proved (at least with his introduction) that he was somewhat stereotypical.

    Due to regular normal black gay dudes not being entertaining due to their lack of gay cooning; I just cant see a show representing anything that we haven't seen before.

    BloodDrive4.jpg

    The blood-fueled, bat-shit crazy, car racing show, "Blood Drive" on the SYFY network, is not "good" per se, but it's definitely some Grindhouse style fun.

    Every episode I've seen so far has been way over-the-top genre fare pulled from car, horror and science fiction exploitation cinema of the 70s and 80s. There are cannibals, cyborgs, evil corporations, extreme violence and crazy sex (one couple does it rough doggy-style as they drive to the finish line).

    One thing the show definitely has is plenty of Black Male Eye candy. :shock: I'm only a few episodes into the first (and only so far) season but already I've seen enough to give them props here on the site.

    Here are a bunch of (NSFW) screenshots to give you a sense of what I mean.

    1. Brains @African King - we need a medic. And his knowledge is fresh so he'll recall a lot of information.

    2. Brawn - @SB3 - he got some muscle so between him and me, we good for building a fort or barricades.

    3. Romance/ Smash Partner - undisclosed. I'm not falling for that.

    4. Nurturer @KritiKal Analysis because we be in tune and I need someone with sense so that we don't die because of reasons listed in number 5

    5. Right hand man @DreG - somewhere between him, me and @SB3 hilarity and shenanigans will ensue.

    6. Inevitable friend that turns foe. @Ockydub because we will probably argue over something petty and then there will be a Twitter like #zolastory about it when the planet recovers from the zombies that starts out like "Did I ever tell yall about how me and this mofo here fell out?"

    1. Brains = Either @JNH412 (because he handsome and seem smart for some reason, he barely even be on the site so who knows) or @BlackguyExecutive (because he looks like a cute West Wing era Dule Hill and would be a smart diplomat).

    2. Brawn = Was gonna say @sekou because he been posting shirtless muscle thirst traps from day one but he already said he's actually weak. So imma go with @Ockydub so he can just mindlessly Hulk Smash zombies.

    3. Romance/ Smash Partner = I have my picks but well, y'know...can't be unprofessional. Instead I'll go with this pick:
    @Nick Delmacy's right hand, that counts as a squad member

    4. Nurturer = Either @ControlledXaos (because he clearly can cook, I likes to eat during Zombie Apocalypses) or @African King (because he's proven that he will hold his folks down unconditionally)

    5. Right hand man = Either @DreG (because it wouldn't take him five fuckin' episodes to finally figure out the Zombie situation like on The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead. He would get it instantly and know the rules have changed) or @hannibal (because, well, of course...the constant jokes)

    6. Inevitable friend that turns foe. = Either @SB3 (because he would eventually turn cannibal and want to make bacon out of our human meat) or @Cyrus-Brooks (because he would of course eventually try to split opinions on what to do and try to take over the group)

    THIS!!!

    As a 28 y.o. male, I know good and well how much there is an emphasis on teaching kids to pass exams instead of them actually learning the material. I know how much there is of a lack of emphasis on essential life skills in school. We spend so much time on the pythagorean theorem but we don't know how to balance a checkbook or other essential life skills (and other skills for jobs). I have a brother ten years younger than me and I hope that things go much better for those in his cohort than they did for me when it comes to finding work. Sometimes I feel like telling him to get a trade like HVAC or barbering. Quite a few people who go to trade/vocational schools can make anywhere from $40k-$90k (gross pay) depending on what they do and how much overtime they put in.

    ^^ Besides the degree, the main thing in getting hired in anything mostly is the connections. Who you know, not what you know. Even if you have the skill sets you need to get your foot in the door, which is best done by having someone already inside who knows you or knows of you, open the door for you.

    See, that kind of writing above is what drew me to this site in the first place,@Nick Delmacy

    [​IMG]

    That’s why in my status I joked about background checks. How the Oscar folk got blindsided by this is puzzling when you and others were already there with the printouts.

    @Rico below is a 2-min clip from the show that captures how they attempt to engage blk masculinity/sexuality in nuanced ways. i also thought it was clever that the storyline of the show is based on infidelity and, surprisingly, the person who cheated is the girlfriend, not the boyfriend. while i don't love the show, i do appreciate the clear intention to bring a complex storyline around gender, sexuality and race to the screen.

    Ooo thank you for being the first to comment - I was starting to feel like I became the site's resident thot? *wipes brow*

    That's a man's body baby

    Edit: I do wanna watch the show though. I tend to like Syfy's stuff.

    Well, having seen all the episodes. They have made some great points on sexuality and masculinity in the past that I was shocked because I hadn't seen them presented to a Black audience before. Therefore; imma reserve my judgments.
