CASSIUS Releases June Digital Cover ‘The First Supper’ featuring “30 Unapologetics”

On the heels of its inaugural “Culture Vultures” digital cover, CASSIUS — the latest brand from iONE Digital (formerly Interactive One) and the definitive digital destination for urban millennials – has announced its June 2017 cover: The First Supper.

‘The First Supper,’ a graphic illustration featuring 30 of the most talked-about, controversial figures in pop culture and American history, is divided into four covers featuring distinct groups of ‘Unapologetics’-cultural disruptors as they are known in the CASSIUS world. The series features critical essays penned by CASSIUS top editors and on video, extended conversation about the covers’ ultimate message and the sheer power of its many subjects.

The June cover is in keeping with CASSIUS’ mission to cut through today’s headlines with stories and critical commentary that are relevant to millennials and directly address the global impact of Black culture. Each month, CASSIUS will create original covers underscoring their unique point of view on themes such as power, identity, and race. Video content will accompany each cover.

“This month, we wanted to nod to ‘The Unapologetics’ of then and now,” says CASSIUS creator Kierna Mayo, SVP, Content and Brands at iONE Digital. “We determined that people throughout time who change the world and never apologize for it, fall into fascinating sub-categories worthy of exploration. Deciding which ‘disciples’ should have a seat at the ‘First Supper’ table was hotly debated in our office. The truth is, the world is filled with ‘Unapologetics’ -fearless individuals who push us to think differently and for everyone depicted, there was also the case for someone else. We hope our audience has the same endless discussion we did. Who really moves culture forward?”

The June cover art was illustrated by Mark Hammermeister.

At a time when mainstream media is dominated by political theater and extreme narratives, CASSIUS provides readers with a rare lens that positions Black culture as central to the world’s key issues.

Cadillac and The Coca-Cola Company are the proud launch partners of CASSIUS.

Watch Trevor Noah Eloquently Gather Tomi Lahren on The Daily Show!

 

 

 

If Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter had an ultra conservative baby it would most definitely be Tomi Lahren. Lahren might be the biggest troll in politics, she has already compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK and foolishly called out Beyoncé for her Superbowl Halftime show performance. All the while she still claims she’s not racist though.

The millennial conservative and host of The Blaze network show Tomi stopped by the The Daily Show with Trevor Noah last night. Lahren brought her famed overreaching to the show with her ridiculous points and Noah easily dissected them apart.

From the jump Lahren was already nervous when she sat in that chair across from Noah and she said “I’m in the lion’s den, Trevor”. He quickly followed that up with “I’m not a lion at all. Is that like an African thing?”

The two politely debated a range of topics such as Donald Trump, Black Lives Matter & Colin Kaepernick. Lahren stuck to her dumb-ass logic when it came to these topics but Trevor was prepared for the nonsense and easily pointed out her contradictions.

During one point in the interview Tomi went the whole “I don’t see color” route and Trevor jokingly replied “You don’t see color? Then, what do you do at a traffic light?”

Welp you gotta salute Tomi for coming on the show but she still managed to play herself royally. Trevor well done sir for eloquently putting her in her place.
