Hip Hop and Mental Health Part 2 – Getting Gucci with Kanye

This year has been an interesting one.
On one hand, I have had the pleasure in making posts about the help that people need with their mental health. On the other hand, I have seen more and more examples of people in need of a talk with a shrink. I didn’t make those posts to […]

The Epidemic of Black Bitterness and Self Hatred – Plain Truth 102

Throughout my few years of blogging, I have always been amazed at some of the responses that I receive. Some of them are overwhelmingly positive. Others? Not so much. However, I am still thankful for the fact that I can sometimes illicit a response.

Damn, this was a great movie. Although people may knock it for being either overly sentimental or predictable, I feel that it covered some real issues.

The Problem with Young Men is Positive Male Influence – Plain Truth 101

The colleague-in-writing-crime Breazy Taylor recently dropped his post called “Are You Man Enough”. It deals with the emasculation of the male in the present American society.

Good Girls Are NOT Unicorns – CCL 87

Women, on the other hand, are supposed to be more “nurturing” and “desirous of a monogamous relationship”. Thus, you can expect disagreements to begin from […]

Maria Kang and the Acceptance of Mediocrity

If you have seen the lady posing with her kids showing off her toned body, then you are aware of the attention she has been getting.

The Problem With Wearing Blackface Fully Explained – CCL 86

In recent history, Julianne Hough of Dancing with the Stars fame became caught up in a sort of “scandal of her own” sans any Olivia Pope’s or Huck’s to save her. She recently ventured to a Hollywood Halloween Party dressed up as Crazy Eyes from Orange Is The New Black (one of my favorite […]

A bad apple may spoil the bunch because we never open the bag and toss its spoiled ass out. – Darcwonn1906

Being Black in America tends to be something of a difficult process. For the most part, Black people are far from perfect. However, as a race, we […]
