The Blackest Black History Month Continues: Prince’s New Passport Photo

Something's in the water running through the pipes that go to African-American households.

Because this here Black History Month—that is, the second month of 2016—has been one for the history books. Beyoncé's "Formation" video, coupled with her black-ass performance of the song at the Super Bowl; President Barack Obama's black self suddenly being able to nominate a third justice to the Supreme Court; and Kendrick Lamar's black-ass performance at the Grammys are all so black-ish that we don't know what to do with ourselves. 


In the middle of all that blackness, we missed a black-ass moment given to us by the artist known as Prince. He's a notoriously private public figure, but on Thursday he posted his new passport photo on Twitter.

He has a black-ass Afro and a black-ass “I'm not here for your shenanigans” expression on his face.

Revel in all its glory.

Carry on, black America.
