Wale’s ‘The White Shoes’ Video Is A Melancholy Gem

It’s been a minute since I’ve listened to Wale, but man this is golden!

UPROXX

It may not feel like it, but Wale has an album dropping tomorrow and The Album About Nothing is some of his best work to date. The D.C. emcee comes through with a masterful, new video on the eve of his LP’s release.

“The White Shoes,” Folarian’s ode to sneaker culture and the inspiration that a clean pair of white sneakers can be for the less fortunate, is one of TAAN‘s highlights. The video’s a solemn tale that has become all too familiar with a teenager being robbed and killed over a pair of those white shoes. Backed by the track, the backstory of what it took and meant to attain that pair of sneakers, the resolution packs a punch.

The Album About Nothing is in stores tomorrow, March 31st.

Date a Man Who Dances

Motivation to improve my dance skills. I’ve completely lost all semblance of skill at ballroom dances.

The Naïve Idealist

Date a man who dances because a man who dances is one of the strongest men alive. A man who dances has faced his peers and told them “Begone, give me room to move.” He is no ordinary man, when you date a man who dances that strength lies by your side. Within easy reach is a man who has convictions and isn’t afraid to live by them, When you date a man who dances you can trust he is standing behind his conviction that you are a person worth dating and he won’t back down. A man who dances may have strength in his arms but his real strength lies in his mind and his passions and a man who dances has the strength to use them.

When you date a man who dances under his strength he owns a softer side. He understands the language of touch and…

Last black member from OU’s ‘racist’ fraternity talks about time in SAE

It is at least interesting to her Mr. James’ take on this course of events. I can’t even begin to imagine what he must be going through.

NORMAN, Okla. – A fraternity at the University of Oklahoma was shut down after a video surfaced showing members engaging in a racially insensitive chant.

In the video, you can hear the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity cheering “there will never be a nig*** in SAE.”

The chant goes on to say, “you can hang them from a tree, but they’ll never sign with me.”

William Bruce James II, who says he was the last black SAE member at OU, spoke with KFOR’s Linda Cavanaugh about his thoughts on the incident.

James, who pledged to SAE 14 years ago, says he felt shock and disbelief after watching the video.

The SAE alumnus says he never felt like his fraternity brothers were racist.

“I never heard anything like that while I was there,” he said. “My brothers wouldn’t have allowed it…. That song wouldn’t have been sung.”

James says the fact that the…
