Get Off Barack Obama’s Back

Barack Obama owes the United States nothing at this point. Yet, people want to collect from him.

To be clear, Obama has dealt with a lot of disrespect and admonishment during his 8 years as President of the United States. If he wasn’t called “weak”, then there was question about his nationality. If the nationality […]

Tyrese Chauvinistic Misogynistic Wisdom

So, Tyrese is obviously talking to advertise for his movie that is out in theaters. Either that or he hasn’t seen a microphone that he doesn’t adore. In a recent interview with BET, Tyrese had a lot to say about those loose women out there in the world. If you don’t recall his words, […]

Pepsi Uses Protest to Pimp Soda Pop

Whatever anyone may feel about them, protests are not situations of jest, imitation, or uninformed parody. Protests deal with people’s lives on different levels. If the protest doesn’t typically deal with wellbeing, it deals with the right to life. With that understood, protests are not something that should be imitated for the sake of […]

Kendrick Lamar, Humble, and Feminism

Kendrick Lamar is coming hard for the premier of his next album on April 7th, 2017. After dropping The Heart IV (which potentially disses a slew of rappers/the entire industry), he broke out with his video for “Humble”. And the internet went wild for it. The visuals alone make it noteworthy to watch. And […]

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 […]
