Comedian Jim Jeffries spent his Tuesday evening agonizing over the scourge of racism and what factors have contributed to it the most in recent years.

Never one to shy away from owning the libs, singer/songwriter Joy Villa turned heads at another red carpet with a new provocative style ensemble.

Is it not common for men to razz each other a bit now and then? Though it would be hard to convince Kareem Abdul-Jabbar of this, a little good-natured ribbing never harmed anybody. Abdul-Jabbar took offense to Captain Lee Rosbach, of the Bravo reality show Below Deck, for razzing his crew members in a recent program. Abdul-Jabbar extrapolated that Rosbach's remarks represent Hollywood's "myth of manliness" and the gender-bias equivalent of white people appearing in blackface.

The abortion über alles crowd seems to be making a full-court press at the moment.

As the competition currently stands, Virginia’s Ralph Northam has proposed legal abortion until the child’s first Tooth Fairy visit, citing the financial burden to mothers and the strain of staying awake long enough to complete the furtive dental transaction.

It turns out there are still a few good-humored, politically-incorrect folks in Hollywood after all. Over the weekend, lefty-bashing street artist provocateurs publicly slammed HBO’s Bill Maher with a satirical billboard depicting him not as the thought leader he imagines himself to be, but as a rote purveyor of mainstream liberal propaganda. Specifically he was made fun of as being an “NPC.”
