Lovecraft Country – Strange Case (S1E5)

Mind = Blown. That is all. That is this week’s review. Just kidding. And for the record, The BlackWithNoChaser Facebook Page is bomb. We have some smart folks who are really figuring things out before they are actually revealed! If you’re not a member, you might want to like the page. Leggo! Whitewashed Ruby, Ruby, Ruby! First of all, can you imagine waking up de-melanated? I know that’s not a word, but y’all! Ruby is initially frightened by the transformation and later horrified at the process of returning to herself,…

DJ TLewis, The World’s Greatest DJ! You Mad?

This episode was personal for so many reasons but this one was for the city. JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI. I was asked why I wasn’t promoting that he was Young Money’s Own Lil Wayne’s DJ and I thought about doing it. Sure, that would’ve gathered more attention, maybe, maybe not. It was important to give the man his flowers while he is here, without attaching him to anyone else. Let’s be real, it ain’t easy coming from Mississippi and reaching the top. T. Lewis is a self made brand and that should…

Lovecraft Country – A History of Violence (S1E4)

Christmas came on Friday when I saw a message on Black With No Chaser’s Facebook page that announced episode 4 was already available. (Good looking out Jay G for letting us know!) I hurriedly opened my iPad to see if I could find it. My heart swelled with joy as I realized I could actually watch three days early.

D’Wight Women Out Here D’Wight Womening, Again

When the news broke that another non black woman, Jessica Krug, was impersonating a black woman to increase her affirmative action credit score, I laughed. As a black man, I found it funny. Like, here is another white woman attempting to sneak her way into black spaces by literally attempting to replicate black faces. The horror. The hilarious. The audacity. The D’wight womaning. And when I laughed, I laughed like a rich white man would laugh at a poor white man, asking for change on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. “You’re…

“Damn..Why Can’t We Have Nice Things?”

A little while ago, I was mindlessly swiping through Instagram stories, searching for funny quarantine memes and Tik Tok videos. A Black woman that I follow is the co-owner of a successful small business and enjoys luxury purchases. She documented her day of treating her mom to a much-needed quarantine “Girls Day.” Socially distanced brunch and shopping. Seeing her mother squeal with delight at spending time with her daughter was so comforting to watch since I had been mentally and emotionally exhausted with the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic and…
