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 […]

Dear White (and Black!) Americans Who Don’t “Get” Race/ Racism – Halloween Edition

For those who don’t understand, blackface has roots in the minstrel show, which was when white people would put on black face and depict black people as happy-go-lucky, blundering, idiotic, buffoonish caricatures who always had a happy song o’ cheer on their lips, no matter how hard life was for them. Do you get it? Black people were things and not people. This is what you’re subconsciously doing to us again – you’re making us things and not people while you get to go home, take off the makeup, and return to being a full 100% human being.

Trayon Christian: Good Ol’ Manhattan Racism

The more I hear about racism still occurring in 2013, the less I’m as shocked as some other people. “I can’t believe this is still happening!” Are you alive? Are you conscious? Because, if so, this shouldn’t be shocking. It should be embarrassing and shameful, however. Today’s post is about good ol’ Manhattan racism. It’s […]

White People Are “Swell”

So, this isn’t really about twerking. It’s not about accusing a group of people of cultural theft. It’s really about taking pride in what you’ve done, where you come from, and enjoying that you can do it because not everyone has that luxury.

Miley Cyrus Must Be Stopped!

Can somebody please sit Miley Cyrus and her people down and explain that they’re essentially raping a people blind for profit and no better than their ancestors and their relationship with Africa?

Eric Holder: “Let My People Go!”

On the way into my 9-5 today I heard about how U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder (President Obama’s inner n-word; no, really, some black dude with awful hair who is probably married to or aspires to be married to someone White said that about President Obama) is planning to stop the Federal Government from issuing […]

Dear White Americans Who Don’t “Get” Race/Racism

(Unnecessary disclaimer: This is not a letter to all White Americans, but it’s for those who “don’t see color” or who feel that we are post-racial in America, think racism is a thing of the past that ended with the Civil War, the Emancipation Proclamation, Amendments 13-15 of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act, […]
