Hello 911, it’s me, Susan.. I’m at Windsor Castle and it’s very ethnic. There’s a black preacher, a black choir and Officer I think a black man with some form of instrument. I fear they’re about to start the wobble. I don’t feel safe: #RoyalWedding
Hello officer, it’s me, Susan. There’s a prince marrying a black woman... this cannot be right. I don’t feel safe. #RoyalWedding #HarryAndMeghan

This is @CorEyPTownsend, clear your calendars and grab your best bereavement garment because today's the day we pay some R-E-S-P-E-C-T to the #QueenOfSoul: #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
Our Editor-in-Chief @blacksnob is live at #ArethaFranklinFuneral and you’ll all be pleased to know that they did our auntie RIGHT.

The #QueenOfSoul is draped in a long gown, gold sequins and gold red bottom shoes. #ArethaHomegoing
They knew that they had to do the #QueenOfSoul right, because she would’ve been ready to tell each & every one of us about ourselves if we had her up there looking any type of way. #ArethaFranklinFuneral #ArethaHomegoing
