Former NFL player and “Undisputed” co-host Shannon Sharpe has become Black Twitter’s favorite uncle for his outspoken, and often witty, commentary on racial politics and social activism in sports. Last year, the sports analyst spent his time drooling over Black model Nicole Murphy, even sharing photos from the time the two finally met up.

As the host of MTV’s “Decoded,” blogger Franchesca Ramsey found herself discussing all things race – from discrimination to colorism and even cultural appropriation. Ramsey rose to fame in 2012 after her video “Sh*t White Girls Say … To Black Girls” went viral. Its likely race is also a hot topic of conversation at home, as Ramsey is wed to white attorney Patrick Kondas.
