The latest black example: Kelley Williams-Bolar

I grew up in Chicago with a mom that was overzealous about education.  By the time I was twelve, I’d gone to seven different schools.  I went to one school for Kindergarten, two schools for first grade, I was home-schooled halfway through second grade and then started at a new school where I stayed for […]

The world is still anti-gay

When I was 13 years old, I had a crush on my one of my teachers. She was a woman. She was 50 years old. I told her I liked her and she told me she was married. Bummers. Anyway, I’m sure this is rich with Freudian issues but I also believe it was the […]

Freedom of speech is a white privilege

This is the map Sarah Palin published on her site in 2010. Less than a week ago, someone reached one of those targets. Is Sarah to blame? She certainly doesn’t think so and she isn’t alone. What’s interesting about this situation though, is while a number of media outlets are speculating that Palin’s poor use […]

There is no such thing as an H.N.I.C.

I’ll admit I haven’t been that interested in the Obama administration since the presidential campaign.  Yes, I voted this year, but that’s because I’m loyal to certain entrenched systems in the world and not because I like them.  There are just some things I don’t try to overthrow. I know this. Obama knows this. Let’s […]

The black quarterback

Where there are sports, there are rituals, superstitions, and curses. And where there is a black quarterback, there is a contentious relationship with the white head coach, a pending court case, a finished prison sentence, a lost Super Bowl, or an early benching during a game. Where’s the love? Steve McNair. Dead. Duante Culpepper. UFL. […]

For Discussion: Lesbians slapping one another on video

I could barely watch this entire video and as usual the comments in the Bossip section are worse than the posted content. First, I can’t help but notice what appears to be a trend of hard-ass lesbians hitting the scene in many homophobic communities. It appears that there is acceptance of black gay lesbians, the […]

Ya’ll Suck!!! (My post-election bitchfest.)

On Tuesday November 2, 2010, I began my day at the Ikea in Red Hook, Brooklyn. My coworker and I got there at 10 o’clock ready to get the order for our office kitchen done. I had the sniffles. Unfortunately, we didn’t leave until 3:30pm. The combination of combative white shoppers and poor minority service […]

For Discussion: Bring Your A Game

I have attached a clip from the documentary “Bring Your A Game” filmed by Mario Van Peebles to start a much needed discussion about the impact of hip hop and sports on black education. I was unable to embed the entire documentary so please be sure to check out the entire documentary (approx. 20 minutes) […]

Is “black love” a burden?

The other day, I stumbled upon a Facebook conversation about the television show, Private Practice. The women, mostly black, were talking about how they didn’t like Addison (the primary white character) and Taye Diggs (the only black man on the show) dating. They made no mention of race. Suddenly in the middle of the exchange […]

Bishop Eddie Long and Male Rape

A few weeks ago when news broke about Bishop Eddie Long’s sexual exploitation of his church’s younger male patrons, one of my favorite news sites, Bossip, suggested the number would go as high as 30. I’ll admit the main blogger is a bit homophobic but for the most part, I tend to trust their sources. […]
