Watch How This Woman Plans On Turning Black History Month Into A Drinking Game

Comedian Akilah Hughes has a great idea on how to celebrate (that's right, celebrate) Black History Month.

In short, keep a couple of bottles of your favorite spirit handy, and take a drink every time you hear about one of these things:

  • Any time anyone mentions Eli Whitney or the cotton gin, you are going to take a shot of gin.
  • "Why isn't there a White History Month?" "Why can't we watch White Entertainment Television?"
  • For every sepia-toned commercial about Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, or JFK, take a shot.
  • When Don Lemon turns his back on his race, take a shot.
  • Any time someone compares Obama, Malcolm X, or Mahatma Gandhi to MLK, take a shot.

  • Any time you hear these words or phrases, take a sip:
    • Affirmative action
    • The race card
    • Police brutality
    • Al Sharpton
    • The black community
    • Disenfranchised
    • Segregation
    • Prefacing any sentence with "no offense"
    • Any numerical estimate for how many people are at a protest

  • Finish your drink any time someone wonders whether MLK's dream will ever be realized.
  • Any time anyone is asked to speak on behalf of all black people, take a shot.

Black History Month is during the shortest month of the year. Anyone playing along with Akilah will be relieved it's only 28 days, I'm betting.

Shocking footage taken in Alpharetta, Georgia last Thursday shows a mother relaxing by a pool while her two sons play in the water. The scene quickly changes from fun to frightening when one son warns her about a tree about to fall on her.

"I was sitting at the pool relaxing and reading a book while watching my two sons swim, when I heard a tree cracking and then my son yelled 'Run mom!' so I bolted out of my chair right before a huge tree fell right on the chair I was sitting on," the mother said, according to Viral Hog.

"Our home security camera captured the whole thing!"
