I recently discovered the former Comedy Central comedy duo Key and Peele. They have such great chemistry and have produced a whole lot of laughs. Both Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele are biracial so they use race in their comedy without inhibitions. My main problem with them is that they can be so vulgar. I don’t watch stand up comedians who are not family friendly. I have only found three or four videos with little or no cursing or other vulgarities. But Key and Peele’s (slave) “Action Block” as profiled in this NPR piece is hilarious. It has only one bleeped out curse word.
If you are going to be a superstar in the spotlight, you have to take the bad with the good. Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has had her share of bullying on social media sites like Twitter. A few searches will reveal beefs with Azealia Banks, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip and even Papa Johns Pizza.
Readers of BWDB, Beyond Black and White, Interracial Marriage and family have been treated to interviews of Lissette Gonzalez and her fabulous family. (See Color Blind & Valentines ). We were absolutely delighted in Lissette’s love for her husband Ali and children Kiara and Ulysses.
