Imagine if you will a world where alternative comedians are black and black comedians do alternative comedy. Have you fallen down a rabbit hole entering a world of mayhem and absurdity? No. You've just found yourself in 2016 where black people are actively redefining "black people". So sit back and enjoy while we welcome the New Negroes.

"New Negro" is a term popularized during the Harlem Renaissance to imply an outspoken intellectual departure from long-standing racist ideology and institutions.
