It’s Getting Hot In Here….So Wear A Bulletproof Vest?

“The roof, the roof is on fire we don’t need no water let that muthafucka burn, burn, burn mutha burn”.  Although this quippy party catch phrase is a bit antiquated, I believe it still carries relevance today, specifically in Chicago. For a city that has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of the Great […]

Distant Relatives Speak Truth To Power

What happens when you take one of the illest mc’s of all-time and put him on a track with a “toasting” reggae sensation? You get distant relatives. I’m not referring to your typical long lost cousin kind of distant relative, I’m talking about the family member who you never met but instantly click with. Although […]

The Audacity To Be Independent

It’s about that time again. It’s almost the time of year for corrupt politicians to stuff the ballot box and legitimize it by stating that there were “glitches” in the system. Or better yet, turn away voters in predominately minority precincts by telling them that they are not registered to vote. Okay maybe that was […]

The Boondocks & Barack

“Excuse me. Everyone, I have a brief announcement to make. Jesus was black, Ronald Reagan was the devil, and the government is lying about 9-11. Thank you for your time and good night.” Oh how I missed the cynicism of Huey Freeman. The premier of Season 3 of the Boondocks exceeded my expectations. I must […]

Kat Stacks: Sex, Sultriness, and Sensationalism

I tried to stay above the fray. For weeks I have contemplated writing a post about a certain Internet sensation that goes by the name of Kat Stacks. With the legalization of racial profiling and xenophobia in Arizona, NBA playoffs, and financial regulation I had a slew of topics I could’ve talked about. Trust me, […]

Corporate Thuggin’: Goldman Sachs, Gordon Gekko, and Greed

Webster’s dictionary defines thug as a “ brutal ruffian or assassin”. In other words, he/she is a ruthless badass that nefariously pushes and breaks laws to achieve their desired ends. Today when the word thug is mentioned, many people conjure up images of young ethnic looking men, with baggy pants, an “I don’t give a damn” attitude, and […]

Feeling Like A Black Republican

T. Pain aka “Teddy Pain”, aka “Nappy Boy”, aka “Teddy Pinned her ass down”, aka Tallahassee Hero” can now add another nickname to his litany of monikers- “Teddy Tool”. Although Mr. Autotune (another alias) has been able to trick millions of people into actually thinking he can sing, he was still duped by the sly […]

The Wrong Direction Of The Right

As President Obama continues to calmly navigate through unchartered territories, I continue to be amazed. Although his campaign oozed with hope, promise, and change, it was hard for me to envision an America that would embrace such a drastic overhaul of the status quo. In the depths of my soul I hoped that Americans would coalesce around […]

The Negro Problem, 2010 Census, and Bad Dreams

“They approach me in a half-hesitant sort of way, eye me curiously or compassionately, and then, instead of saying directly, How does it feel to be a problem? they say, I know an excellent colored man in my town; or, I fought at Mechanicsville; or, Do not these Southern outrages make your blood boil? At […]

Game Time Politics

“And the crowd goes wild! Sort of.  It looks like the Donkeys have taken the lead. However, you can never underestimate those scrappy Elephants. If the Democrats can just hold the lead through the fourth quarter they may be the victors in this match.” If politics was a game (which it is), and Congress had […]
