"Get Out" was critically-acclaimed upon its release, earning more than $253 million. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an attempt to maximize the film's chance of being nominated, Universal Pictures entered the film into the comedy-musical category at the upcoming event — a move that is unsettling for some. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lil Rel Howery, who also starred in "Get Out" tweeted, "Their is nothing funny about racism," on Tuesday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, adventure films like 2016's "The Martian" and 2010's "Alice In Wonderland" were also selected for comedy categories in attempts to snag more nominations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The nominations will be announced on Dec. 11 with the event following on Jan. 8.

Barbie, Doctor, and Facebook: Freshman At University of Hartford Arrested For Harassing Roommate And Smearing Bodily Fluids On Her Belongings @balleralert Freshman At University of Hartford Arrested For Harassing Roommate And Smearing Bodily Fluids On Her Belongings - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the MiamiHerald, University of Hartford student Brianna Brochu was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal mischief and second-degree breach of peace after tampering with her roommate's belongings. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Chennel Rowe — aka Jazzy — says she never got along with Brochu. After Rowe got a new dorm assignment and notified her roommate, Brochu posted a cryptic message online that read: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Finally did it ya girl got rid of her roommate! After 1 1-2 months of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions, rubbing used tampons on her backpack, putting her toothbrush where the sun doesn’t shine and so much more I can finally say goodbye to Jamaican Barbie.” The post has since been deleted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rowe chose to tell her story on Facebook Live, alleging that Brochu even posted pictures of her backpack with blood spots on it. She also said she previously went to the doctor for severe throat pain, but they didn't know the cause of it. Rowe believes Brochu's actions caused her sickness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rowe's story fueled beliefs that the attack was racially motivated, prompting Twitter users to demand justice with the hashtag JusticeForJazzy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ University of Hartford President Greg Woodward also denounced Brochu's actions in a statement saying: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The incident has brought about accusations of racism, and I want you to know that I hear and share your anger and frustration. Acts of racism, bias, bullying, or other abusive behaviors will not be tolerated on this campus." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Brochu, who admitted to licking Rowe's silverware and wiping used tampons on her backpack, is no longer a student of the university and has been released on bond.

Bad, Beautiful, and Growing Up: Let's Talk: Why Is Light Skin vs. Dark Skin Still A Topic Among Blacks @balleralert Every Shade of Brown Is Beautiful Let’s Talk: Why Is Light Skin vs. Dark Skin Still A Topic Among Blacks -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many topics that should just fade away and one particular topic stands out amongst many, light skin vs. dark skin. Why is this still be discussed? Why are we demeaning each other because of the shade of our skin? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For so long, dark- skinned people were criticized because their skin tone was not light enough. Growing up, that sh!t bothered me because I was not accepted by my peers because I didn’t fit into “their” perfect world. Wtf is perfect about someone’s skin tone? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I would hear people talk about how light skin was in and dark skin wasn’t. Like what? What do you mean light skin is in? Are we both not beautiful? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hated hearing, “You’re pretty for a dark-skinned girl.” Why do people feel the need to say that? Basically you are saying that dark-skinned women or men are ugly. Which is far from the truth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some people act like having dark skin is bad thing. Well guess what? It’s not. Being a dark-skinned woman-man is not only beautiful but truly amazing. In the words of Pac, “The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice.” This line in “Keep ya head up” meant so much because when others are putting you down, you have to learn to ignore the bullsh!t and show the world why you are the sh!t. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We should not be putting blacks against each other. We should be uplifting one another and encouraging each other towards greatness. There is enough racism as it is with not being accepted by whites. No need to be downing our own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Black is beautiful!

Beautiful, Children, and Ignorant: Let's Talk: How Important Is lt To Talk About Racism In Your Household? @balleralert Let’s Talk: How Important Is It To Talk About Racism In Your Household? -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With all that’s going on in today’s society from the increase in racially-charged hate crimes and black men, women and children being gunned down by police to being publicly disrespected by the celebrity-in-chief, Trump, it’s extremely important to discuss racism within your household. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years, racism wasn’t discussed as often in households due to many not wanting to push the issue onto their children. Today, racism is so blatant, especially as it’s spewed directly from the White House, that it needs to be discussed with our children to prevent the worst case scenario. They need to have a clear understanding that there are some ignorant people in this world that will not respect them because of the color of their skin. They must understand that people will hate them and target them because of a little extra melanin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many of us raise our children to love and respect others, but then you have some people that could care less how you or your children feel. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Racism is not an inherited trait. It is a learned behavior that has been pushed onto children at a young age. Children don’t just start hating other races, they are taught to be hateful. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It doesn’t make it any easier when you have a clown in office who takes every opportunity to put down other races and nationalities. We have to instill in our children that they are beautiful, they are smart , and most of all important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let another day pass you by without having the conversation about racism with your children. They are never too young. Remember parents, you are your child’s first teacher.
