Chicago’s About to Pull the Trigger on Blackness

I am watching the most beautiful “mile” in the world turn into a war zone where black bodies embody the spirit of the enemy. For those that don’t know, Chicago’s downtown area has been taken over by groups of violent teenagers looking to steal Ipads, for which the Chicago Police Department (CPD) has formally named […]

Jew Hip Black Hop

Bonded by our survival of near extinctions, Jews and Blacks always leveled with agendas for ending racism. For decades this linkage of two Diasporas endured the normal strains of any relationship; specifically, numerous occasions influenced separation of the two groups with an unbreakable extension of the nasty racial myths behind both groups. However, during times […]

Word From Big Brother

Last night my younger brother asked me for help with a project that he was about 2 weeks behind in work. Of course it was due the next day so I automatically adopt an attitude: have no mercy for what doesn’t get finished, but give all that you have. Last night was not a burden; […]

Distant Relatives: Tomorrow Kings and OFWGKTA

The word around Chicago whispers about those young cats in LA, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, and it supposes that OFWGKTA probably bumped some Chicago tracks on their iPods.  Crowd hoppers of the last decade, from Wicker Park to Lakeview, can immediately see the similarities between OFWGKTA and the “Windy City’s” own Tomorrow […]

More often than not, we get the occasional talk show hosts and news correspondents ignoring the uplifting advocacy of Hip Hop and it irks me. If they would stop copying their competition for silly gossip, they would probably recognize the tone Hip Hop is taking, especially today. Artist, it seems, are very concerned with the […]

On the Origins of Our Sexuality

So it has come to mind lately that sexuality begins with responses to someone else’s arousing actions. Completely dependent on the first occasions of sexual excitement, sexuality also stands before us freely, not committed to hetero or homo orientations. When we talk about molestation and refer to it as a crime, we talk about adults […]

Loosen the Ties that Once Were Nuses

There have been too many occasions in which a Black business has taken advantage of its customers for the sake of maximizing their income. A boatload majority of the support for these businesses comes from other Black people, and in effect, the profit-focused regulation creates a sad reality. Economic projects, whether entrepreneurship or achievement of […]

We Trade Toys for Oblivion and Prisons

Dedicated to Theo Hike III, Lawrence, and Jalyn – One Love Adulthood feels strange and comes early when all your clubhouse friends (from kindergarten up) become institutionalized. We tell time by the progression of life’s complexity: homework piles up undone, small crushes that explode into sexual exclusivity, and before you know it your comrades don’t […]

Spoon-Fed Nickelodeon: Some Shows We Wish Would Re-Run

Television rarely comes on in my dorm room, guess that’s how it gets in college with paper after paper and the guilty slippage into partying. On those luke-warm Friday and Saturday nights I like to watch “The Cosby Show” and “A Different World,” shows that are incredible, shoes that were live for a different generation. […]
