Poor Lil’ Rudy
Remember when Rudy Giuliani was considered “America’s Mayor?” Well, now the rest of the world can see the aint-shitness that some (ahem...Black) New Yorkers have been talking about for years. Trump’s personal lawyer is finding himself further and further up shit’s creek without a paddle and almost without a boat as his dealings in the Ukraine are becoming more clear. What we know so far is that he positioned himself to make big bank from Ukraine in the midst of the impeachment scandal unfolding. Plus, he was named honorary mayor in a small Ukrainian village. Weird, we know. Also, he’s being investigated on up to 9 charges in the state of New York,, so it’s only a matter of time before more dirt comes out. Perhaps the clearest sign of this is his bestie Trump is distancing himself...like he does with everyone he’s getting ready to throw under the bus.

Around the Diaspora
Akon is building his own city in Africa. Senegal, to be exact.
This Ugandan-British poet rejected an offer to become a member of the Order of the British Empire because of the “pure evil” impact colonization has had on Africa. Shout out to not being afraid to speak truth to power.
Some Trinidadians packed up their lives and their kids to fight alongside ISIS in Syria. Will the T&T government allow the children to come back home?
Culture that Pops
