B.o.B.’s “The Adventures of Bobby Ray”

Just seven years after Andre 3000 shattered every boundary and limitation Hip Hop ever really had with The Love Below, B.o.B. stands as the ideal culmination of that album’s incredible influence. Compelling, audacious, and genuinely upbeat and life-affirming (rather than “conscious,” pessimistic or whiny), B.o.B.’s The Adventures of Bobby Ray is definitely “Hip Hop,” but […]

Single Black woman says, “I ain’t the Problem, Nightline, Black Men Are!”

So, that we are crystal clear I do not run behind black men. I do not beg them to spend time with me. I am not desperate for their attention, money, or third arm. I am so tired of Nightline, CNN, ABC, and yes the great matriarch himself, Tyler Perry, telling me that I am […]

Blind Leading the Blind

Tonight I ate dinner with “privilege.” I watched his grandchildren in their plaid collared shirts and blue blazers drink the purified water of wealth.

Greenwashed Out.

The other day I was waiting in line at Border’s and noticed the various items being sold at the checkout counter. There was an “eco-friendly” lipstick  for sale that was advertised as being made from 100% organic oils.

Kat Stacks: Sex, Sultriness, and Sensationalism
