DEAR WHITE PEOPLE PREMIERED THIS WEEKEND ON NETFLIX!

Set against the backdrop of a predominantly white Ivy League university where racial tensions bubble just below the surface, Dear White People is a send-up of the now post "post-racial" America that weaves together a universal story of finding one's own identity and forging a wholly unique path. The satirical series -- which picks up where the acclaimed 2014 film by the same name left off - follows a group of Winchester University's students of color as they navigate a diverse landscape of social injustice, cultural bias, political correctness (or lack thereof) and activism in the millennial age. Through an absurdist lens, Dear White People utilizes biting irony, self-deprecation and sometimes brutal honesty to hold up a mirror to the issues plaguing society today, all the while leading with laughter. From creator and executive producer Justin Simien, Dear White People stars Logan Browning, Brandon P. Bell, Antoinette Robertson, DeRon Horton, John Patrick Amedori, Ashley Blaine Featherson and Marque Richardson. Yvette Lee Bowser serves as showrunner and executive producer, with Stephanie Allain and Julia Lebedev as executive producers, as well. For more on Dear White People, please visit Netflix Media Center (media.netflix.com) or our official show pages: Twitter: @DearWhitePeopleFacebook: /DearWhitePeopleInstagram: @DearWhitePeopl

D'Angelo Releasing New Album and Tour This Year

Musician D'Angelo will release a new album and tour this year. (Image: Facebook)

According to Rolling Stone, D'Angelo has plans to release a new album this year as well as embark on an international tour. This information was revealed by his manager Kevin Liles during an interview with Billboard magazine.

"[I]t's very melodic and there's an influence of all the things he loves: there's James Brown, there's Prince, and everything people grew up loving D'Angelo for, from Brown Sugar to Voodoo," Liles says. "It's a mixture and an evolution of where he is right now. And you have to think that when you have the opportunity to work 10 years on an album, that album's truly gonna be what you want it to be. Is it limited to the kind of sound that he did with the earlier records? No, it's not."

It's been more than 14 years since D'Angelo released his last studio album "Voodoo," (although he has since done compilation albums) and his fans are still clamoring for a new recording by the talented artist who hasn't released a new project in recent years.

Netflix's popular original programming is spawning favorable reviews for shows such as "Orange Is The New Black" and "House Of Cards." Now, the binge-watching worthy service provider is looking to expand its empire into the talk show realm.

Set to be hosted by E! Network's own Chelsea Handler, the online TV network said Thursday (June 19) that her new show will begin in early 2016. It will adopt the format of her current E! talk show, "Chelsea Lately," and retain the comedic focus on pop culture and entertainment.

The seven-year run of "Chelsea Lately" will end this year on August 26. To usher in Handler's induction into the Netflix family, the deal will spotlight an original stand-up performance that will premiere on October 10, 2014. The talented comedian will also create four original specials that will debut in 2015.

Speculation grew after Handler announced her departure from E!, with many thinking that she would continue her hilarious reign on a broadcast network. With word now that she is taking her talents to Netflix, Chelsea Handler is revolutionizing how late night talk show stans get their fix.

For those not keeping score, BET and B. Scott have been at war for the past year since the former forced the latter to change into men's clothes during the 2013 BET Awards.

The transgender host decided to take the matter to court and rejected the network's offer to settle. Now, according to TMZ, the move might have cost the embattled talking head some major bucks. To be succinct, B. Scott could end up having to pay Black Entertainment Television six figures.

Scott's losing the case left him on the hook for BET's attorney fees, which according to court documents, totaled $279,000. Originally, BET offered to let him off easy for $15,000, if Scott promised to drop any appeals. Given that he decided to go hard into the courts by rejecting the offer, and filed an appeal, BET is now going after him for the fees-demanding $150,000 at least.

The ever-defiant Scott isn't going down without a fight, saying to TMZ, "No one will tell me who I should be, how I should present myself, or what I do with my life."

Suffice to say, a judge will decide what Scott will do with his money.

U.S. Patent Office Cancels Washington Redskins Trademark

According to The Washington Post, The United States Patent and Trademark Office has canceled the Washington Redskins trademark registration. The ruling does not mean that the team has to change the name. But it does affect merchandising for the Redskins and the NFL as it limits the team's legal options when others use the logos and the name on T-shirts, sweatshirts, beer glasses, etc.

The ruling states that the Redskins name is "disparaging to Native Americans." Federal trademark law does not permit registration of trademarks that "may disparage" individuals or groups or "bring them into contempt or disrepute." The ruling pertains to six different trademarks associated with the team, each containing the word "Redskin."

"We are extraordinarily gratified to have prevailed in this case," Alfred Putnam Jr., the chairman of Drinker Biddle & Reath (the firm that filed the lawsuit on behalf of five Native Americans) said. "The dedication and professionalism of our attorneys and the determination of our clients have resulted in a milestone victory that will serve as an historic precedent."
