When your favorite bartender keeps your favorite spot open for you on a Sunday night to show the man (and his wife) a bit of love for allowing you to access the lives and souls of your ancestors in a work you’re beyond proud of — good vibes only 🙏🏿

Thanks to the brilliance of @BarryJenkins and his crew, The Underground Railroad is up for 7 Emmys…and I’m here! So if there’s something black-related on stage and they cut to black people in the audience for a reaction shot - I’m totally available!

Lol to the people who say they are “boycotting” the @WSOP because of the vaccine mandate. You can’t boycott something you’re not allowed to attend

Would love to have been in this meeting: "Should we... just stop murdering people at traffic stops... or... how about we buy people useless bags and then say it's their fault that they keep their license in their wallet like a normal person? Yeah, that's a good plan."

We recently purchased some Not-Reaching Pouches to help reduce deadly force encounters between law enforcement and citizens during traffic stops. The pouches store a driver’s license, and insurance card in plain sight in the vehicle on an air vent or other visible location.

My nearsighted friend Caleb took me to "Beanbag Beach" not realizing it was a walrus sanctuary.

I don’t often correct transcription mistakes, but there’s a rather big one in that interview today. I said, “Hail Satan, Master of Lies, Lord of the Flies, Keeper of the 7th GATE.” Gate, not Grate. I don’t even know what a 7th Grate is, or why you’d keep one.
