Azealia Banks Was Right about Kendrick Lamar

Let me be clear: I am not a fan of Azealia Banks whatsoever. As talented as she is, I feel that she does involve herself in too many beefs and Twitter wars. For me, she can be somewhat overbearing with her opinions. As much, they are her opinions and feelings to have. Thus, while […]

Spike Lee was at Pratt Institute for a lecture in honor of African American History Month. Being encircled by people that call Brooklyn “their home” (whether old or new), he was […]

Malcolm X Gets No Respect

I know that this is an old situation, however I feel compelled to talk about it. So, I’m going to do just that.

When I first saw the Nicki Minaj artwork, I knew it would start a shit storm. Hell, why would it not? She (or as she says, someone else) blatantly used a picture […]

Marcus Smart was Right to React and be Suspended

Marcus Smart reacted the way many of us would have when we are pushed to the limit. Before I explain my position, let me get into the situation.

The Martin Luther King Estate Battle in 5 Lessons

As a patriarch, the one thing you do not ever want is your kids arguing over what you left behind for them. Also, you do not want their issues to go public. Many people don’t realize that “home issues” need to remain “inside the home”. The outside world doesn’t need, nor deserve, the chance […]

5 Lessons Learned from Snowpocalypse Atlanta

What a night.

It all began in the early Tuesday morning of January 28, 2013. The snowstorm hit the northeast with a relentless monsoon of snow and coldness. Meteorologists warned us that the streets would get back because the weather was only going to get worse. My wife’s school district (Clayton County) called it off […]

Martin Luther King’s Image is Abused For Fliers

Martin Luther King, Jr. has always been revered for the work that he has done and the influence he has left on others. Having a holiday in memoriam is just the tip of the iceberg. His name is synonymous with world peace and progress. While he fought hard for civil rights, his ultimate goal […]

52 Book Project Pt. 1: Blockbusters by Anita Elberse

As I begin this 52 book journey, I knew I had to start off with something interesting. So, picking up the book Blockbusters was a win/win. For one, I would be reading something informational about entertainment. Another reason is that I would get an informed opinion about business decisions I didn’t always necessarily agree […]

Azealia Banks and the Twitter World

Recently, within the “Twittersphere”, Azealia Banks rolled through her usual antics of saying stuff filled with controversy. However, this time was a little different. Instead of saying something to “make herself look like a child”, she went for the “pseudo educational commentary on society” angle. With what she said, she would have been correct if […]
