Star Wars Writer Confirms Lando Calrissian Is Pansexual  Star Wars Writer Confirms Lando Calrissian Is Pansexual 

Growing up watching Star Wars, I was always in awe of Billy Dee Williams’ character, Lando Calrissian. Hell, I was in awe of Williams in just about anything, including the malt liquor commercials. This week, with the opening of Solo: A Star Wars Story, Donald Glover is stepping into Williams’ perfectly coiffed and…

Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Promising Prequel With an Even More Promising Lando Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Promising Prequel With an Even More Promising Lando

The trouble with prequels is that it’s hard to raise the stakes when you already know certain characters are going to live. And in the same vein, you can predict who’s going to die, but Solo: A Star Wars Story was able to capture the exploration of a pre-New Hope universe with fun dialogue and action and great…

Judge of Characters: Black Men, White Wives ... This Is America

Donald Glover basically broke the internet when he released his video for “This Is America,” a disturbing visual with enough interpretable art all up and through it. Even the biggest art intellectual likely needed to go back and watch it 47 times.

Dear Black Male Nerds: Maybe There’s Another Reason the Popular Black Girls in High School Rejected You Dear Black Male Nerds: Maybe There’s Another Reason the Popular Black Girls in High School Rejected You

By now you have watched and likely discussed Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover) and his new video, “This Is America.” Whether you love it or hate it, it’s forcing a discussion about the state of black America and making many (white) people uncomfortable in the process.

If you happened to be a teenager in 1996, and if you were a teenager who also happened to be black, there is a moderate to strong likelihood that you have a soft spot in your heart for the Ghost Town DJs. If this describes you and you heard Virgo Williams’ 18-word-long a cappella soothe through the speakers while you…

The All-American Question: Can You Truly Love Black People if You Date Outside the Race? The All-American Question: Can You Truly Love Black People if You Date Outside the Race?

Whether it is about a same-sex, interracial or nonconforming relationship, as a rule, I tend not to involve myself in the question of whom other people choose to love, and it’s not because I have a self-righteous sense of egalitarian, progressive thinking. It’s mostly because I have one universal rule for other…

Met Gala 2018: Did Vogue Catch Your Fave Live on Camera?

Go down a wormhole, but make it fashion. This was pretty much how I spent Tuesday night, watching video after video on Vogue’s YouTube channel, where all of our Met Gala faves were featured talking fashion, true confessions, and their takes on the night’s theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.”

Black Life, White Wife and the Art Caught in the Middle Black Life, White Wife and the Art Caught in the Middle

Over the weekend, Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, dropped a video for a new song called “This Is America.” You are reading this, which means there’s a better than 90 percent chance that you’ve both seen the video and had a discussion about it already. Probably several.

Making Donald Glover the ‘Anti-Kanye’ Is Gross and Wrong and Will Backfire, so Please Don’t Making Donald Glover the ‘Anti-Kanye’ Is Gross and Wrong and Will Backfire, so Please Don’t

I spent Saturday evening in a room full of black people, celebrating the birthday of a friend and the genius possessed by two people who were not in that room: LeBron James and Donald Glover. The first part of our night was devoted to the second half of the Cleveland Cavaliers game, and as we watched LeBron go Full…

It is only fitting that Donald Glover, in his first host-ship of Saturday Night Live, did a hilarious send-up of the Migos, the group he brought to a lot of folks’ attention when he won a 2017 Golden Globe for Atlanta.

Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry Is More Than Just Your Paper Boi Atlanta’s Brian Tyree Henry Is More Than Just Your Paper Boi

I’ve often thought about making a list of TV and movie characters so beloved that the actors who play the roles become inextricably linked to the characters. Perhaps the greatest indicator of this phenomenon is when black audiences begin referring to actors by the roles they play.

Atlanta, Donald Glover and the Invisibility of Black Genius Atlanta, Donald Glover and the Invisibility of Black Genius

A few weeks ago, a video surfaced of a white kid named Cooper participating in a step show. Cooper’s enthusiasm immediately made him a YouTube sensation.

Did a Taylor Swift Script Dead Donald Glover’s Deadpool? Did a Taylor Swift Script Dead Donald Glover’s Deadpool?

If Tyler Perry was able to get his Boondock’s episode scrubbed from every crack of the interwebs, it is entirely plausible that the whitest of all white womanhood, Taylor Swift, would be just the girl to dead Donald Glover’s Deadpool.

What’s Going on Between Kanye West and Former Marvel CEO David Maisel? Hmmm What’s Going on Between Kanye West and Former Marvel CEO David Maisel? Hmmm

Something’s in the water (good and bad?) between Marvel folks and rapper-moguls.

This morning, Glover tweeted that he wasn’t too busy to complete the show—as…

During “Sportin’ Waves,” the episode of Atlanta that aired Thursday night, Earn received a generous and unexpected payout from Darius’ puppy-related investments in season 1.
