Ferguson and Healing America’s Race Problem

We have an opportunity now to move forward, but we won’t get “there” until we embrace race in America, with all the good and bad that comes with it. It’s unpleasant at times and everyone has to look at where accusations of racism have been wrong and right on all sides, but we can do this. I know we can.

The I-G-G-Y Should Not Use “N-I-G-G-A”

While you whine about how it’s not fair, may I remind you that slavery, racism, Jim Crow, and how your ancestors swindled the Australian Aborigines out of their land and homes wasn’t fair either.

It Happened To Me: I Was Just Trying To Do Some Yoga

You may have heard about my story yesterday at XoJane where this white lady wrote about how I had a difficult time with yoga because I’m “fairly heavy” and black, which are things that would understandably contribute to my ignorance of yoga and lack of enthusiasm toward it, right?

Is Macklemore Really “Wack”lemore?

I tried to stay away from a Macklemore think piece, but as people are still outraged about his win 14 hours later, here goes. The Grammy Awards aired Sunday night and it was an overall good show. The Grammys eliminated a lot of niche categories, which I feel is wrong, so what’s left is generally […]

Racism Is Over!

I want to draw attention to the Republican Party’s official Twitter account’s tale of Rosa Parks helping to end racism. They followed with another tweet hours later saying that her efforts helped continue the fight against racism.

White Men Are Victims

I ran across this story on Raw Story about how a black woman professor was formally reprimanded by her college employer for the way she handled a discussion on structural racism in her Introduction to Mass Communications course. Two white male students took offense to her discussion and asked why they had to talk about […]

Katy Perry’s Seppuku

Basically, when it’s done in a way that uses the culture or race as a prop more than letting the people be people, that’s when you’re wrong and need to take a seat and hear about how you’re wrong. We can’t have this conversation when you’re accused of being wrong and you yell your way out of the room telling everyone how hypersensitive they are.

This Is a Race-Themed “The Best Man Holiday” Post

Hoo boy. So, USA Today posted an article using the headline: “Holiday Nearly Beat Thor as Race-Themed Films Soar”. The article linked The Best Man Holiday (a holiday romantic comedy starring a mostly black cast) to Twelve Years a Slave and Fruitvale Station. Twelve Years a Slave was about the true story of a freed black man who was sold into slavery and was a slave for […]
