Maxine Waters and the Marginalization of Black Women

In recent history, Maxine Waters delivered a speech on the House floor. In this speech, she took time to justify her criticism for Donald Trump. She noted:

When we fight against this president and we point out how dangerous he is for this society and for this country, we’re fighting for the democracy. We’re fighting […]

Colin Kaepernick is a Case of Repeating History

Now the blackballed writing is on the wall. Colin Kaepernick is an unwanted free agent. Unless you have been living under a rock, none of this should surprise you. The one man that decided to start a conversation by simply kneeling during a football game is now a bigger NFL public enemy than Carlton […]

Burning Sands Is Entertainingly Accurate and Inaccurate

On November 22nd, 1997, I crossed the burning sands of Alpha Phi Alpha. Hailing from Beta Upsilon chapter of Alabama State University, our chapter was known for its leadership and vibrant social status. However, none of that status could prepare me for the six weeks, six days, 22 hours, 48 minutes and 0-6 seconds […]

White Tears in 2017 – Dear White People Backlash

It has come to my attention that a lot of white people are offended by Netflix’s inclusion of Dear White People. Again, there are a bunch of people late for the “Cry Useless White Tears” show. It would have been more worthwhile if it was the movie version. However, we are talking about the […]

Steve Harvey and Donald Trump Is All Business

Well, Steve Harvey has found a way to get people (not me this time) upset with him again. Recently, Harvey met up with Trump to talk about concerns within the black community. Mind you, Barack Obama asked him to meet with Trump for whatever reason. Also, we must understand that Steve Harvey has the […]

When Blackish Became Really Black

I was skeptical of Blackish at first. I really wasn’t trying to see a show that may pander to the white audience. And then, there was the shaky idea that Anthony Anderson may have dropped a dud of a show. With the amazing Tracie Ellis Ross, I had a feeling that the show would […]

Hate Crimes and Selective Outrage

The existence of hate crimes, in any form, should bring people together. At no point should it be acceptable to harm another human being over their race, nationality, sexuality, or anything else. If they are harmed, then there should be backlash and outcry. And this isn’t a simple expectation. This is something that should […]

Wrong Way – An American Punk Story

Wrong Way #1 is the introduction to a world that is more about real life issues and less about imaginary heroes in capes and tights. And that fact, by far, is the best thing that is going for this book.

Wrong Way follows the everyday dealings of Trey Miller, a down and out cartoonist that […]

Umar Johnson is Who We Thought He Was

Umar Johnson, known by many as Baba Ifatunde, Dr. Umar Ifatunde, or King Koopa of the Conscious Movement, totally exposed himself through video. Arguing over some petty beef with Sara Suten Seti, Umar went into a 40 plus minute tirade. Meanwhile, he was supposed to be talking about black parenting and such. The black […]

Octavia Spencer and Fear of a Black Feminine God

There is an overall fear of anything black being powerful. Malcolm X was practically killed due to his discipline and influence. Many say the same thing about 2Pac. Barack Obama had 8 years of hellacious, racially tinged issues to deal with as president.

The Shack is a book written by William P. Young. Hitting shelves […]
