Forgiveness is at the cornerstone of the black experience in America. At any given moment, black people are expected to “forgive” people. Never mind the fact that we, as a people, may not be ready. And forget about the fact that whomever has done any of us wrong may not be asking for that […]
Larry Jefferson made me proud of all the Black Santas that exists out there. And no, it isn’t because he stood up to a mob of racists. And he didn’t have to save a cat from being stuck in a tree. Rather, Jefferson took the time to do his job with honor and humility. […]
There are days when I wish Stephen A. Smith stuck to sports and sports only.
In recent history, he was interviewed by Dontae’s Boxing Nation. They asked him about being compared to Shannon Sharpe and whether he agreed about Sharpe’s stance on white involvement with black issues. Here is where the situation got interesting:
“…and remember, […]
When I read that Charles Barkley was going to become the host of “The Race Card” on TNT, I knew it was a beautiful disaster in the waiting. I just knew the former “Round Mound of Rebound” was going to make some classically calamitous prime time programming. I knew there would be trouble because […]
From first glance, it seems as if Moise Morancy was raised right. The humble and engaging hip hop artist/activist/actor is also a man on a mission. His mission?

Donald Trump’s words have echoed through my brain for the past few days.
“Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Mamadou Diallo had to deal with one of the worst things that could ever happen. And one of those things is the intentional harm of a loved. And not just any type of bodily harm: I am talking about rape. That’s right. Someone tried to rape this man’s wife. And he reacted like anybody […]
Have you ever taken the time to listen to someone that absolutely makes no sense? These people may talk a good game. They are eloquent, verbally proficient, and even bring up talking points that sound good. Yet, all of their loquaciousness doesn’t add up with reality. It is as if they take a position […]
The wife and I arrived at The Acadome at Alabama State University before the rest of my family. It was bad enough that we had to get up early in the morning and drive two hours from Atlanta. It was hilarious enough that we got to the campus way before the graduation started. And […]
Coon (n.) derogatory term used for a black person.
I cram to understand those like Sheriff David Clarke. It seems like Mr. Milwaukee would actually take the high road on issues with police brutality. Yet, he takes the road less traveled: the path of a policeman that wants to stick it to regular citizens. […]
