Visions Of a Concrete Rose

By Keantre Malone 4:42 pm November 20, 2012 The youth of generation Y struggle to overstand the meaning of their actions; I know this since my daily fate mingles with the universal problems for youth. I felt so bad the other evening, I felt like I wasn’t doing anything with my life. These are the […]

Black Apathy: Believing That Racism Is Normal

By Keantre Malone 2:00 pm August 7, 2012 httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgASe3CIw9E Along this path through American history my people have forgotten how to dream. My people are playing their part in making the black/white problem normal. How can you blame us? Our concept of “reality” constantly proves the impossibilities of our imagination, our creativity. What is real, […]

Getting Past Youth Terrorism

By Keantre Malone 3:00 pm January 10, 2012 So I’m sick and tired of conversations about the state of Black youth ending with the same played-out solutions—restoring strong family values. Now don’t get me wrong, of course family is important, but we are mistaken if we think that broken homes are the main factors fueling gang […]

Youth as the Miner’s Canaries of Democracies!

By Justin L. Hill 3:44 pm April 21, 2011 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 […]

Like A Gena 6 (Is the world on the same page with Black folks?)

By Keantre Malone 11:37 am January 20, 2011 Oh no! The folks back home will never stop smacking their lips over this one. As African American Studies grows across the nation, its scholarly diversity does not fall behind. Could white professors be added to the “things keeping Black people down” list? Possibly, but the fall […]

Puck the anti-black Folice

By Keantre Malone 12:40 am December 3, 2010 You know. We always talk about education saying it as the answer to everything, yet we never talk about actual lessons. Talking about learning something, everyone knows about our culture: chicken induced diabetes, large rolling stone penises, the list goes on. The feeling “I’m f@cked up” extends […]

The New Trap: Death

By Keantre Malone 12:00 pm November 18, 2010 We are living in that twenty-first century… Suicidal bombings, Dark Knight’s Joker, Kid Cudi and Kanye West black rose pop music display the new relationships to death. It was death that kept the powerless from doing whatever they pleased; think about “crime,” we approached it slowly, in […]

WHIP Season–A Rant (or Something)

By Summer M. 9:00 am October 18, 2010 Autumn is my favorite season, but it has its low points.  Last Monday’s federal holiday, Columbus Day, is the nation-wide bat signal for America to commence with its annual “We Hate Indigenous People” season.  In other words, Columbus Day marks the moment when that United States raises […]

Uninspired Nihilism

By Summer M. 9:15 am September 13, 2010 Lately, I’ve found it exceedingly difficult to blog.  To be sure, it’s not because I lack the desire to write and make you privy to my mental awesomeness each Monday morning, but rather because I’ve essentially checked out of the blogging world.  I wish I could blame […]
