The 88th Annual ACADEMY AWARDS aka #OscarsSoWhite Airs Tonight at 8:30PM on ABC

OSCAR Sunday has arrived. The main event begins at 8:30PM ET after the Red Carpet countdown coverage, which began at 7PM ET.

It's no secret that the Academy Awards has been under intense "side-eye" scrutiny due to lack of people of color reflected in the nominations...yet again.

Quite frankly, it is inexcusable that Ryan Coogler (Creed Director), Michael B. Jordan (Creed) and Idris Elba (Beasts of No Nation) weren't nominated. Many are choosing not to attend or watch the Oscars this year, due to the continued and blatant disregard to Black, Latina and Asian excellence in film.

Sad News: Author Harper Lee Passes at Age 89

Famed 'To Kill a Mockingbird' author Harper Lee passed early Friday morning. Lee was 89 years old. To this day, 'To Kill a Mockingbird' remains a classic. The bold narrative that delves into racism, race relations, legal justice and the plight of it all through the surroundings of a young girl, Scout Finch, as she witnesses the turmoil that swells when events arise and her father, Atticus, takes on a controversial case that rocks their southern town.

2.16.16: President Obama Holds a Press Conference in California

President Obama discusses various topics including the chances of Donald Trump becoming the next POTUS.

2.13.16: President Obama Speaks on the Passing Antonin Scalia [Video]

The passing of Supreme Court Justice Scalia leaves a vacancy on the Supreme Court. It is pretty much certain the GOP will oppose any choice President Obama chooses, which falls right in line with the negligent and insubordinate behavior they've shown for the last several years.

Whether Republicans like it or not, President Obama's choice will eventually be confirmed unless they want to further damage their party with these childish antics and temper tantrums.

 photo F70266E3-8AA1-48D6-8A93-D003D69D8788.png_zpsruwlwqkh.jpeg

Years ago I read The Coldest Winter Ever by Sister Souljah and was instantly pulled into the gritty and powerfully written urban saga. In 2014, a sequel was released. However I was steadfast that before I read the sequel, A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story, I would revisit The Coldest Winter Ever.

Just when you thought the drama couldn't be taken up another notch after the revelation that Blac Chyna (Tyga's ex and baby mama) was dating Rob Kardashian...which actually seems to be doing them both some good...and of course the epic Twitter war that erupted last week between Kanye West, Wiz Khalifah and Amber Rose...who shut it down with one tweet.
