Thanks, Psychology Today.

Okay, let me start by saying fuck Psychology Today. Now that I have that off of my chest, I’ll tell you why the respected publication has quickly tumbled from the ranks of respected publication to bona fide shit rag with just one misguided, misinformed post.

These are great performances, and things in the world of Lauryn Hill are finally starting to look promising again. I’m almost willing to start crossing my fingers for a lil’ new music from L-Boogie sometime this decade. Almost.

The Stank Eye Woman Syndrome and how Black Male Privilege is to Blame: Are Black Men Really Ignorant of how they “Compartmentalize” their “Female Friends”?

So, in the traditional way in which black people begin their stories, “What had happened was . . .” I attended this event where one of my best male friends was hosting. Upon arriving my best male friend comes and says, pejoratively and with great amusement, “Your friend is over there,” hinting to a black […]

On Rape and the Media Politics of Libya: “There’s a Stirring in the Pot…Stirring in My Soul”

As a young black girl like most children I told lies. I told big lies. I told small lies. I told white lies. I told lies. And, even had the audacity to argue with my “all seeing all knowing” do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do black grandmother about the usage of lie over her usage of “telling a story.” What […]

Women’s Herstory Month: Do You Know Any Border-Crossing Black Women?

On the last Friday of Women’s Her-story Month, I want to honor black women who are what I call “border-crossers.” Border crossing is centered in the margins and “what moves people” . . . the fluid transmissions and the mergers. It comes out of womanism and black feminism. It comes out the frustration with borders […]

A Letter to Lil’Wayne From Three Black Girls

“Letter to Lil Wayne” is a direct statement of justice from Watoto From The Nile. Growing tired and fed up with the constant degradation of Black women inside of Hip Hop music, they voice their views and opinions on this melodic track.

The Real Problem with the WNBA

This summer, the WNBA will tip off its 15th season. Some are surprised that it has lasted this long. Most whine that women’s basketball isn’t entertaining. There are few dunks, very little high flying. The players aren’t as big, aren’t as strong and they aren’t as fast. The WNBA isn’t for those people. Unfortunately, those […]

An Open Letter To Lil’ Kim….

Your beef with Nicki Minaj is illegitimate on multiple levels, Kim. Such behavior is entirely unbecoming of a Hip Hop legend. And for the sake of your legacy, it really needs to stop. Game over bitch. Gatorade. Wet towel.
