    Ice Cube Politely Chin Checks Bill Maher And I Am Here for It

Ice Cube Politely Chin Checks Bill Maher And I Am Here for It

Before I start, let me remind you: Ice Cube used logic and not idealism per se. Yes, this is the same man that has used misogynistic themes in his music. Yes, this is the creator of the club smash “We Be Clubbin’”. But, this will not disqualify him from speaking on a subject that […]

    Materialism, Kendrick Lamar, and How Twitter Should Mind Its Damn Business

Materialism, Kendrick Lamar, and How Twitter Should Mind Its Damn Business

Materialism is always around to ruin a good thing, I tell you.

Picture the scenario: you are a recent high school graduate. You are extremely thrilled with the prospects of doing something with your life after four years of toil, trepidation, and a weak cafeteria version of Taco Tuesday. Yet, you still made it through […]

Katy Perry and Audible Appropriation

Today’s lesson will be about appropriation.

The appropriation that I will speak on has nothing to do with the simple “taking something of use from someone without permission”. This (mis)appropriation is culturally based: the adoption or use of elements from one culture to another. Typically, this is harmful because it bastardizes the original form for […]

Is’Nana The Were-Spider Vol 1: In Review

When I think of the folklore that is Anansi, I recall teenage mischief. I never had the chance to really grow up hearing about Anansi as a child. Rather, I gained knowledge of the king of all stories by way of Denzel Washington and UB40. Their Jamaican spiced version aired on HBO during the […]

    Five Comic and Sci Fi Movies Better Than They Should Have Been

Five Comic and Sci Fi Movies Better Than They Should Have Been

Guardians of The Galaxy 2 is out and I am going to go see it. That’s right. I’m going to sport my Rocket Racoon shirt, maybe get some popcorn, and enjoy the show in all its glory. Even if I only get to see Baby Groot do something childishly dumb, it will all be […]

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 […]

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 […]
