Decades after the Civil War, many states erected monuments that memorialized the fight of the Confederacy. As the years passed and the country desegregated, these monuments became a reminder of the racism that occurred and still persists in many places of the country. While many of the memorials have been torn down, their removal has become a cultural flashpoint in modern American history. In this episode of Can You Skate It, Taji Ameen and his friends travel to Richmond, Virginia, the former capital of the Confederate States of America, to shred the statues on their skateboards. Because nothing says “Fuck your racist history” like skating all over it.

Eating at the Worst-Rated Buffet I Could Find on Yelp | One Star Revie…

VICE – Taji and Coolr eat lunch together at least four times a week. But it’s always a challenge to find a place, due to Coolr’s very specific diet restrictions. Coolr is celiac, which means he has to have a dairy-free, gluten-free diet. He’s also allergic to shellfish. So naturally, Taji decided he’d be the perfect person to bring to one of Yelp’s worst-rated buffets, with hundreds of items on the menu. Things could go either way on this one. Coolr could leave satisfied, with a full stomach… or in an ambulance.
