Did anybody order ‘thug rice?’

Graffiato, an Italian-inspired restaurant in Washington, D.C., plans to hold a hip-hop dinner honoring slain rappers Biggie Smalls and Tupac in February. A proposed menu for the occasion hit Twitter earlier this week and left a lot of people shaking their heads.

Yes, you’re reading that clearly: ‘thug rice’ is on the menu. And while you’re at it, be sure to check out ‘blood money sausage.’

Graffiato chef Mike Isabella caught wind of the criticism and told DCist the menu is simply a “work in progress.”

The Graffiato dinner on February 2 is a celebration of hip-hop from two of the greatest artists of the ’90s. The menu is still a work in progress, and dishes will be…

Woman trying to trademark ‘I can’t breathe’ should have a seat

Eric Garner’s last words have become the slogan of a new movement. “I can’t breathe” is now everywhere. It’s a hashtag for people’s frustrations over the sense that Black lives are being hunted. It’s on T-shirts, to show solidarity with nationwide protests and to make a statement. Activists, celebrities, and everyday people are chanting “I can’t breathe” because every time another Black person is killed by a cop without consequence, we feel like WE CANNOT BREATHE. It’s a continuous punch to our collective chests.

“I can’t breathe” now belongs to the people. This is why it’s completely ridiculous that a woman named Catherine Crump has filed a trademark application for the phrase. The Smoking Gun reported that the woman from Waukegan, IL submitted the application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on December 13. She wants to use the phrase for T-shirts and hoodies. She said she’s been using it…

As we previously reported, to protest Black Friday, makers of the popular party game Cards Against Humanity removed all of their products from their online store on the day after Thanksgiving — instead offering only a box of what they said was actual “bullsh*t” for $6. Despite the fact that it was made quite clear that customers were literally just buying sh*t — Cards Against Humanity founder Max Temkin tweeted “if you buy the poop expecting it to be something else that’s not poop, you’re actually buying a valuable life lesson for $6″ — the boxes of sh*t sold out by day’s end. All 30,000 of them, grossing Cards Against Humanity $180,000.

And now as the boxes of poop have come rolling in over the past week, people are somehow still surprised that their packages actually just contain sh*t, as promised. LAist purchased a box out of curiosity…

Roller skating ring bearer goes viral

Traditionally, the role of ring bearer is awarded to some cute innocent little tyke in the bride or groom’s family. Aside from a few “Aw!” moments from the crowd, it’s an adorable yet fairly unremarkable part of most weddings.

Until now.

On Sunday, a Redditor user by the name of “lucid_scheme” posted the above picture from his friends Bobby and Shanna Lockhart’s wedding in Lubbock, Texas, writing:

A friend of mine had his wedding today. The Best Man is asked for the rings, the groom holds his hand out and the Best Man plays the “I don’t have them” card. Everyone checks pockets…and no one has the rings. Then…this guy rolls in.

The wedding crasher on roller skates is Quis, one half of…

a poem: Cowardice in Ferguson

Cowardice in Ferguson

Yellow raced up the blue spine
to target black skin.
He needed to feel strong
so he shot a teenager
from 35 feet away.

Yellow and blue make red in the streets.

He collects his nigger-killing reward
while he hides, shaking.
A fear that fueled 6 shots
to end a life
now makes him protect his own.

Little boy blue,
come out with your hands up.
We won’t hurt you.
