Homo-Nonexistence: “We Are Conspicuous in our Absence”

“We are conspicuous in our absence” says the democratic openly gay Senator Mark Leno. This statement is honest, but not the full story. The fight to get gay history integrated into the curriculum of schools in California is heating up.  The importance of gay history has come up before in my life as I wrote […]

Why I Hate Being Called Articulate

In my 21 years of existence I’ve been called almost every name under the sun. Some of the names were warranted, others are too foul to even mention in this blog post. Nevertheless, I always clung to what my Mom told me as a child: “it’s not what they call you, but what you respond […]

Why Denzel Washington will NEVER be in a Tyler Perry Movie

Yes, I agree with Spike Lee 100% on this issue. Tyler Perry sells coonery and buffoonery and get’s paid. His excuse is because he makes so much money and employs black actors, this justifies his simplistic and stereotypical brand of comedy. But real talk, big time crack and heroin dealers make a lot of money […]

Beyonce, No

Usually I leave the music news to Dallas, who does a really good job of keeping me abreast of what the young folk are listening to.  Last week’s post on Kobe’s faux pax and the subject matter of this week’s entry are leading me to believe that I am fully committed to being unequivocally hated […]

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 […]

Tyler Perry Is Full Of Sh*t….

This is lowbrow entertainment at its most blatant and exploitative. And that’s fine. Tyler Perry is undoubtedly a success. Great entertainers entertain their audience. But great artists challenge their audience. It’s about time Mr. Madea learned the difference.

Oh, Hell No not on Good Friday: The Movie the Help

I tell you, watching the trailer above all I could do is shake my hand and say, “Hell no.” Yes, I said “hell no” in the shonuff way my Great Aunt Bessie would say with hand on hip gossiping with the mothers of church while cooking Sunday dinner. I tell you, watching this trailer elicited […]

Youth as the Miner’s Canaries of Democracies!

In Peter Coy’s article the Kids Are Not Alright, he quotes that democracies are “much better at managing large numbers of highly educated people” than are nations with an official leader who has absolute authority (read: autocratic countries).  Leaders of autocratic nations face the dilemma of needing an educated work force to grow their country’s […]

I’ll See Your Post-Racialism and Raise You Polyethnicism

My mom wanted me to write about the newest Tea Party scandal. I wanted to discuss Kobe Bryant and how his outburst made me consider my views on free speech. So, I propose a compromise. Popular brand Carol’s Daughter has the internet going nuts over it’s newest advertising campaign. The company recently announced it’s newest […]
