Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) A week ago or so, Saturday Night Live celebrated its 40th season on NBC with a live show filled with many of its famous alums. Ah, yes… the Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time Players.

Tweet (ThyBlackMan.com) I read a snippet in an old article in Essence Magazine indicating that researchers have uncovered new information suggesting that Cleopatra may not have been Black.
