Finally developed and ready to be displayed after 101 years, a never-released feature film with a black cast is said to be the most complete recorded performance of the important black Broadway star Bert Williams (November 12, 1874—March 4, 1922). The story of its journey from 1913 to its 2014 debut is pretty fascinating.

Don Lemon continues to say idiotic things on TV. I really wish I could like him, but his opinions are so often completely unsupported. Check out the video after the jump as anchor Chris Cuomo cites 30 years' worth of behavioral science in opining that spanking does not work, then Lemon steadfastly ignores the science and brings up training dogs and (incredibly) slave culture.
How is anything from slave culture something for which he should be arguing? (He's called on that and tries to say that's what he meaaans, he's evolviiing...)
Spanking is not a racial issue. I'm sick of hearing that it's a black thing, or a black southern thing. It's not. Or at least, it shouldn't be. Hitting your child is, across the board, ineffective, all about the parent and—too often, though not always—abusive. It also creates more aggressive human beings...
Dr. Gwen Korovin has been IDed as the throat specialist who was in the room when Joan Rivers was undergoing her endoscopy. A report says Korovin took a selfie with Joan in the background during the procedure, and began a biopsy that led to Rivers vocal cords seizing, causing cardiac arrest. Rivers died a week later.
TMZ—so hated, yet so useful, no?—also brings to light photos that seem to contradict the story of Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts, who claims she was detained by police based on her race after making out with her boyfriend in his car. Photos seem to back up reports that she was having sex with him in the front seat of his car with the door wide open. The pictures show they were much heavier into their sesh than her story let on, though they do not definitively show the act.
But come on, if you're doing this and are surprised the cops would ask for your ID, you're on drugs or extremely entitled. Bringing race into it diminishes the very real problem that too many black people have with being targeted by cops for no good reason other than suspicion of being black. She plays right into the doubters who think race is a non-issue in this country, and who routinely say black people are the ones hung up on it.
