The Negro Justice League is known to love all things nerdy and black. What some people don't know is we also really, really love being petty, ESPECIALLY with each other. So as luck (and some hard work behind the scenes by our resident tech support specialist, Chesterfield) would have it, we've been given the chance to play the game Awkward on PS4 and stream it for our Twitch and YouTube viewers!
Developed by Snap Finger Click, Awkward is a digital version of a tabletop game were friends can play together in person and with others online. Players answer increasingly personal questions ranging from "I have no shame, so don't judge me" to "I'm low key, high key hoping my momma don't find out about this" levels.
For three weeks, starting August 28th, check us out on Twitch, at 7pm EST and watch the awkwardness go down!
Plus, just so you can't say we don't do anything for ya, we will be giving out a PS4 copy of the game for FREE during each stream!

Travelling the world looking for One Piece, and the perfect cup of coffee
SPOILERS for S5E6 of Power
If you missed the previous review click here!
Power has some issues this season, but I’ll get to that at the end.
Our latest episode starts us off with James learning that his estranged wife and side-piece are bff’s. I’m thrilled that these three decided to let it all out on the table instead of delaying the reveal any further. We’re over the halfway mark in this season and it’s time to push the narrative toward its resolution. James was absolutely bewildered and his feelings toward the absurdity of Tasha and Angela working together reflects my feelings about the show Empire as a whole: It doesn’t make a lot of sense. Why doesn’t it make sense?
Angela is the reason why the wheels are still spinning with the FBI, NYPD, and Dre conflict when you think about it. She could’ve easily left well enough alone when she first discovered that the NYPD was investigating the death of a dirty cop, but nope! She deleted the ballistics and is now dangerously close to being taken down. Truthfully speaking, she’s the real antagonist of this season but that’s a topic that will have to wait.
James is on this whole “kick” about becoming a better man, but everyone sees through the bull***t (except Angela, of course). I’ve always said that Ghost creates his own issues and nobody else matters as long as he makes it out ok. James was ready to abandon his family for the love of Angela, and I’m behind any other character that calls him out on his s**t. Kanan has said several times that Ghost is only out for himself and he has plenty of examples to support his position.
I want to see how long this change in James’ character lasts before he reveals his true self again. That alliance with Dre can’t be legit, right?
Tasha Ain’t No Snitch
Detective Rodriguez did her best to fill Tasha’s head with N***a Plot Twists, but the woman is too damn smart for that s**t. Rodriguez suggested that maybe Angela set everything up for Tasha to take the fall for Ghost’s (but really Tariq’s) work and the picture she painted was plausible. The scene was well crafted, ramping up the tension to the point where you bought the idea of Tasha ratting out her husband and his thot. Seriously, at this point I wouldn’t have blamed Tasha if she decided to say “f**k these folks” and sing like a bird. She’s gotten the short end of the stick from jump, so it would make sense.
This episode actually set up something I’ve been waiting for since Silver said he would never lie to protect a criminal. Tasha explicitly implicated Silver in her lie to Rodriguez, and judging by the preview it looks like he’ll be asked about his part in Tasha’s story. I’ll bet the house that he lies and it comes back to bite him in the ass like the postman from Man’s Best Friend.
For everyone wondering what the f**k that is, it’s the movie John Witherspoon is watching on Friday when he says, “That’s yo ass mister postmannnn.” It’s actually pretty entertaining.
But I digress…
John Mak Ain’t Playing
Man, Mak is a M*******A!!! He went out of his way to make sure Proctor would perjure himself. Proctor can’t even go and see his degenerate cousin with Han showing up with the disrespect. However, He wasn’t done there. As a matter of fact, that’s not even where Mak started.
HE STARTED BY GOING TO PROCTOR’S EX AND PROMISING HER A BETTER CHANCE AT GETTING CUSTODY OF THEIR DAUGHTER IF SHE HELPED HIM TAKE PROCTOR DOWN!!!
This savage is a damn Sith Lord. I just sat and looked at my TV in savage admiration. Between Mak and Saxe, everybody is going to jail on this show.
This season of Power has been painfully slow. It’s like we’re waiting in place for all the big stuff to happen. Floyd Mayweather (while explaining his beef with 50 Cent) said what everyone has been saying. This season isn’t close to as great as the prior four seasons. It’s decent, but not a great watch.
Dre is in way over his head and I appreciate the show constantly pointing this out. His journey to find a reliable Spanish translator gave us a lot of funny moments, though.
Speaking of Dre and his uneasy alliance with Ghost, I’m looking forward to seeing how Ghost plans to kill Diego. Some of his best scenes in the show’s history are when he lets the killer out.
Kanan is so great of a character that he makes you like Tariq. That’s s**t is CRAZY!!!
