EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Hard NOC Life emerges from its winter hibernation, and you can thank Michelle Rodriguez for that. After telling TMZ POCs need to "stop stealing white people's superheroes," the actress took to Facebook to say she meant POCs need to focus on creating their own stories. Naturally, Keith had to discuss this with William Evans of Black Nerd Problems and newest NOC contributor Valerie Complex.
