We All Deserve to Be Whole: Sending Love and Resources Thumbnail

This week has been rough. Two wealthy people, who seemed to have the world at their feet, pursued their dreams and were living their best lives, decided to take their own lives. Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain took their own lives, 3 days apart, rocking our world. I’m especially stunned about Bourdain. I don’t even [...]

Listen. I don’t use the word “ugly” but to describe people who are hatemongers. Racists are hatemongers and their outside seem to reflect it, as their insides spill out in the form of faces that are meant for radio: audio only please. It’s like your spirit just decays from all the prejudice you make it [...]

This is America Donald Glover 4

In times of great crisis, we create great art. Donald Glover’s video for his latest single This is America is great art. It’s not because it’s trying to be overly subtle to where only art connoisseurs can defuse the meaning. It’s that it trusts us to pick up what it’s dropping, so it drops a [...]

Picture it: a white woman feels challenged or uncomfortable about something a Black person said or did. Instead of using her words, she cries. Instantly, no matter what the initial catalyst of the situation is, she ends up being appeased, pacified and pampered. Lawd knows we’ve all seen virtual white woman tears shut down conversation, [...]

I have a problem with art that imitates life so well, it leaves us with the message that there is no WINNING. It punches you in the gut and reminds you that even when you think you might win, you will lose. And that is my main problem with Seven Seconds, a drama offered up [...]

No Thank You RKelly

You know we’ve been talmbout BLAXIT for awhile. Oh you ain’t know? Catch up and read my past BLAXIT posts (#BLAXIT: Things We’re Taking With Us If We Leave). Anywho, when we leave this joint, we are going to re-settle in Wakanda, land of the abundant melanin, vibranium and no caucasity. In this land, we [...]

Black Panther. This movie has taken over the world! It’s been probably the biggest pop culture moment in the last decade, and the most highly anticipated film in a long while. It’s finally here, and it has lived up to every piece of hype it has gotten. I’ve seen it twice so far, and will [...]

Let’s Talk About the Official Obama Portraits Thumbnail

It is Black History Month Year 2018, and we are being blessed with the drop of Black Panther later on this week. Wakanda, we are coming!!! This morning, the unveiling of the much-anticipated official portraits for President (always my president) Barack Obama and Forever FLOTUS Michelle Obama happened. Each one of them picked a Black [...]

I Don’t Think King Tut’s Mother, Queen Nefertiti, Was Lady Gaga Thumbnail

I just wanna dropkick people in the face way too often these days. The latest reason why is from the reveal of what they think King Tut’s mother, Queen Nefertiti, looked like. It happened on the TODAY Show, and apparently, they used 3D imaging and forensic reconstruction to come up with a bust of her [...]
