(Photos) Oh Sh*t! Instagram Commenter Questions Jhene Aiko’s “Blackness” & The Singer Goes OFF!

February is almost here which means one thing– Black History Month is just around the corner. Songbird Jhene Aiko recently got into it with a Twitter troll after questioning her about her “Blackness.” A college student tweeted out, “wait, ok I’m in Starbucks at Georgia Tech.. WHY, is their music playlist labeled “Black History Month” & they’re playing @JheneAiko?” Shortly after, the “Souled Out” singer replied by saying, “because it’s about to be February and I’m black.” For those who don’t know, Jhene Aiko’s father is African American, German-Jewish and Native American (he’s Drakin’.. HOLLA!) and her mother is Japanese, Spanish and Afro-Dominican. Being that her father IS Black and she was born in America, that would qualify Jhene as being African-American. The chick who tweeted the original comment went on to explain that Jhene is one of her favorites and she did not mean any harm by what she said. Check out the tweets over in the gallery.

(Video) That’s Racist: White Jeopardy Contestants Do Anything To Avoid African-American History Category

After #BlackJeopardy and #RatchetJeopardy flooded our timelines, it was only right for the actual Jeopardy to include a “African American History” category during their special college student episode. The three contestants, who all happened to be white, avoided the category until there was nothing else to choose from. The students were able to properly answer the questions in the other categories that consisted of “International Cinema Showcase,” “Weather Verbs,” and “Kiwi Fauna.” However when it came to the questions about the black folk, they all were in full struggle mode. SMH! Check out the clip from the show below.

Check Out The First African-American U.S. Navy Officers

Here’s an interesting fact for Black History Month. In February 1944, the Navy commissioned its first African-American officers. This long-hoped-for action represented a major step forward in the status of African-Americans in the Navy and in American society. The twelve commissioned officers, and a warrant officer who received his rank at the same time, came to be known as the “Golden Thirteen.”

(Video) That’s Racist: Catholic School Serves Fried Chicken, Corn Bread & Watermelon For Black History Month

I knew it wasn’t long before someone did something disrespectful… SMH! Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California has stirred up some controversy after their cafeteria served fried chicken, corn bread, and watermelon, which is common soul food, in honor of Black History Month. The parents and students of the private Catholic school were completely outraged, as they should be. Although the school officials refused to speak to the media, they did send out a letter of apology. “I’d like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members,” Principal Nancy Libby said in the letter. “Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes.”
