It’s 2017, yet the levels of hatred and bigotry in this country are sometimes reminiscent of decades past.

In a place that is dedicated to uplifting and showcasing the accomplishments and advancements of Black people, a heinous act occurred by a cowardly person. Someone, who has yet to be identified, left a noose in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.

Following the incident, the museum closed for nearly three hours on Wednesday. It reopened around 3:15 p.m., after police deemed the area “safe and secure.”

“Today’s incident is a painful reminder of the challenges that African-Americans continue to face,” the museum’s Director Lonnie Bunch wrote in a memo to employees on Wednesday. “This was a horrible act, but it is a stark reminder of why our work is so important.”

According to several reports, the rope was found in the museum’s history gallery, which features an exhibit on segregation.

The disgusting incident is currently being investigated by the U.S. State Park Police and the Smithsonian Office of Protection Services.

Unfortunately this isn’t the first time a noose was found on Smithsonian property in D.C. in the last week! ABC News reports that, “Last Friday, police conducting a security check found a noose hanging on a tree outside the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum.” At this time, it’s not clear if the two incidents were related.

2017, people, 2017!

Claudia Jordan Seeks Revenge On HH’s Kevin Frazier!



Remember the “Golden Rule”: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

HipHollywood’s Head Honcho Kevin Frazier could have used that piece of advice before stopping by “The Raw Word” on Wednesday, but unfortunately, we didn’t get to him in time. We kid, we kid. It’s more like the “Entertainment Tonight” host got a dose of his own medicine.

Before his chat with “TRW” hosts Michael Eric Dyson, Claudia Jordan and executive producer and guest co-host, Ice-T, HH stopped by the set to get the inside scoop on if they planned on grilling our guy like he’s had to do to so many celebs himself. Instantly, Jordan began plotting her revenge, “he catches people off-guard all the time,” Claudia quipped, “so let him come here and he will find out for himself what the question are because he’s gotten me a couple times.”

Luckily, when Kevin did show up, the two played nice. Check out the clip below and be sure to head to for local listings.
