2 Racist White Chicks In Blackface: ‘We True Negroes’ [POLL]

Originally posted on HelloBeautiful:

Another day, another racist video. This time around it’s two white girls from Minnesota, Rachel Cooper and Jessica Heid. One of them is a student.

The girls claimed they were putting on facial masks. “We were doing facials and it happened to have been a brown facial mask,” Cooper wrote in an email to the University Of Minnesota Duluth newspaper,“We had to leave it on for 12 minutes.

Originally posted on Old School 95.5:

I don’t know what Kris Humphries aim is, but he’s getting on the last nerve of his estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, who wants absolutely nothing to do with him anymore. In fact, her lawyer said in court today that Kim is “now handcuffed to Mr. Humphries.” In less legalise speak, “Trick, get off me.”

But he won’t and has dragged Kanye West into their drama.

More from TMZ:

Kanye West has officially been dragged into the longest, most ridiculous divorce case ever – KrisHumphries made Kim’s rapper/bf sit for a deposition … TMZ has learned.Kim’s lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, is in court right now, essentially asking the judge to make Kris either s**t or get off the pot.
