Happy Monday and all that good stuff. There’s much buzzing taking place around the globe, including speculation about who Lupita Nyong’o is really booed up with, “Saturday Night Live’s” parody of “Scandal” and Black Twitter’s ongoing introduction to mainstream America

When I learned that ABC was planning to do a 12-hour limited miniseries about a black White House servant during slavery, I was suspicious. Really, another slave story?
